FTN Episode 442 – American Team Tournament Recap and Breaking Heresy Lore

FTN small square

A couple of us were at one of the largest tournaments in the world this past weekend and we give a recap of the event and our performance there. Not too shabby….  After the break we talk about some Horus Heresy color schemes and how to go your own way in established lore environments.

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.

Red pulled down best Necrons and second best individual general at the ATC this past weekend.  Big ups to him.

Team 40k is some of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had over the years and this year is no exception. This past weekend in TN was an amazing experience and we highly encourage you all to give it a shot if tournaments are your thing.

After the break we talk about some of the cool paint recipes in this month’s White Dwarf magazine and a little bit about how it is completely okay to do your own thing lore wise in games like the Heresy.

Sure, there are tons of established stories but those are just what the authors have chosen to tell us.  Warhammer is big enough for your own stories and the doors to that are right there in the lore already.  Don’t let anyone slow you down if you’re thinking about different color schemes or different approaches to established Legions.  Roll those dice!

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.
