FTN Episode 440 – 6 Inch Charges From Reserves Coming To a Town Near You

FTN small square

Wow wow wow.  Are you feeling claustrophobic on the table?  There may be no where to hide from a few assault based armies now.  That might be a good thing and put some much needed spice in the game.

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.

Charging into Obscuring Terrain got a tad bit less wonky with the most recent FAQ change.  Now players only need to come within 2 inches for Engagement range when charging units near/in Obscuring Terrain.  This has a lot of players shaking in their boots.  Is this a good thing?

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.

The Assault Phase is one of the most skill based activities in this game and it just got a little harder to avoid.  I mean.. basically the games needs terrain to be fun and equal the playing field for everyone involved.  There were ‘exploits’ for players to further delay close proximity contact with the opponent that we can guess were unintentional as far as the rules go.

We’ve got a bit of a band-aid on that while still preserving lanes of fire and maneuvering on the table while giving some home for interactivity for assault armies.  Full disclosure, I play Blood Angels and am very happy about this change.

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.
