FTN Episode 439 – Big Changes – Big Opportunity (for Necrons)

FTN small square

Changes to the game are part of the cycle of life.. Right?  Generals around the world will need to adapt to the Command Point changes and how to look for value in their codexes that weren’t considered previously.  The first part of the show is about finding that value and the back half of the show is about how good the Necrons are gonna have it.

Hey all,

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.

We’re all going to be thirsty for Command Points.  I played against someone this weekend who was using the ‘old way’ of spending all his CP before the game started for advantages.  He felt very constrained in the first few turns of the game because he never had the gas in the tank he needed to flip combats.

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.

After a brief player spotlight with Paul and Nick Nanavati we pick Red back up on the show to shed some light on what will become the Necron menace.

There have been several times in the  game where Necrons have been dominant.  Is it their time to shine again?  It might be cool if it is, as it is a pretty easy army to get up and going for new players, for painting and playing.

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.
