FTN Episode 456 – Warhammer Tournaments All Over the World! Is the Meta Healthy?

FTN small square

There has been a lot of chatter on the internet on how some folks don’t think the meta is healthy, balanced or diverse enough.  That’s really subjective and I don’t want to say tournaments, traveling or organized play is for everyone but I can tell you there is a WIDE variety of what people are having success with out there.

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.

This episode is a little late but please go check out the coverage from the Kansas City Open Event from games workshop on the Warhammer TV Twitch page.  TONS of interesting games to showcase.

Some of you know that Adam and I do a show on the FLGN where we talk about tournament meta and attendance.  Attendance is going up and up and the diversity of the field is on the same trajectory.  The faction make up is all over the map.  It’s great!

Of course this way to enjoy the game isn’t right for everyone.  This leads us to the question of – what makes someone a Warhammer fan.

We break it down to the smallest part.  Any and all enjoyment from any bit of Warhammer from any sort of property – comics, games, an old codex, a one off game or whatever, can make you a fan of Warhammer and that’s ok!

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.
