FTN Episode 445 – The Horus Heresy Gets BIGGER! – Mechanicum Up For Order

FTN small square

One of the coolest things about the Heresy is the ability to play whatever force you want for whatever side you want. This edition has just been Marine on Marine so far but NOT ANYMORE! The Liber Mechanicum is up for order today and we give a little teaser for 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.

Back on track with an on time release this week.  We start by talking a little bit about GenCon and how cool it is to be around all of those games.  Of course we talk about Games Workshop’s presence there and all the cool things you can do over the course of the weekend with all the Warhammer stuff.

If you have done Kill Team Live yet I fully endorse you making time for it if you’re ever presented with the opportunity to do so.  It’s an immersive experience and tons of fun.  If you’re a Warhammer+ Subscriber it’s one of the things you can do for FREE too.

I feel like I’ve used a lot of capslock in this post.. Sometimes you just gotta.  In the second part of the show we talk about stress painting – or event driven painting as the case may be.  Whatever it takes to get those battle ready figures on the table.

I’ve had some models on my desk for a LONG time and through some encouragement from recording this show I’m back to painting them.  It’s easy to get stuck at the ‘my models look like crap stage’ but remember everyone gets there and having confidence in yourself and your process is critical to get over this hump.  One brush stroke at a time.

We’re delighted to continue to represent Discount Games Inc as sponsor of our show. They are helping bring FTN to you. Please check them out and support the organizations that support us.

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.
