FTN Episode 437 – Did You Actually Like Having Command Points Anyway?

FTN small square

Big changes coming with the Chapter Approved.  It will definitely take some getting used to but isn’t this the sort of shake up we think we want?  This might be the biggest change out side of an edition shift we’ve seen so far in 9th.  Does this actually get closer to leveling the playing field?

Hey folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

I hate to be late twice in a row but more travel pushed the show back. So sorry! I know it’s a pain to break up the routine.

Last episode we talked about Shadows Edge Miniatures and their project. He’s got a kickstarter going now for what are sure to be more awesome products and you can find it here.

We just right in to what we know and start talking about the Command Point changes hitting soon that will impact each and every army in the game.  But does it actually help?

Aeldari are going right to the top.  It’s not exactly a big jump as they were number 2 or 3 anyway depending on how you were judging that day.  Tau might have enjoyed a brief moment in the sun before heading back down to 3rd or 4th.. We won’t know until we see points.  If we think the above is accurate is there room for something else to slip into that 2nd or 3rd rank position?

Forge the Narrative is mostly a Warhammer 40k Podcast. Each episode is about an hour long. This ideally gives you something neat to listen to on your way to work, or on the way back home. Maybe you can even listen while you are painting or modeling!

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
