FTN Episode 457 – The Heresy is Turning Gold – and BLOOD ANGELS TAKE KANSAS CITY!

FTN small square

The Libre Imperium is up for pre-order this week for the Horus Heresy game world.   This book adds 4 new playable factions back to the game for this edition.  The book looks and feels elegant with tons of flavor ready to hit the tabletop.

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 talk a bit about the new Horus Heresy book in the front part of the show.   If you haven’t checked out the Horus Heresy game yet you really should if you have a craving for ‘historical’ battles.  There is a gritty feel to the entire game that feels both nostalgic and new at the same time.

After that we just have to talk about Blood Angels taking the top spot at the Games Workshop US Open event in Kansas City MO last weekend.  Zaak K put on a clinic with a fresh army list beating out Mani C in the finals.  Zaak will no doubt be giving inspiration to a whole new raft of Blood Angel players.  Mani also showed the world exactly what the Thousand Sons are capable of when paired with powerful new daemon allies.

After the break we do a little Astra Militarum wish listing. We know the codex is just around the corner and since we’re all Guard players it is hard not to have our eyes focused on that.

Is there anything you’re hoping for as a player or possible opponent?  All the new artillery has me licking my chops.  I’ve always enjoyed painting tanks and armor pieces.

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.
