FTN Episode 463 – Do The Models Play Like You Expect?

FTN small square

We have a chill talk about if we think the way the models play match what we expect from the lore.  This is very much a finger the the air type conversation but was fun to have. We compare 40k to Sigmar a bit as well.  We’re winding the year down and looking forward to the next one.

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.

Do the rules match the lore?  It certainly seems like they try. We don’t talk about the ‘power level’ really but more keep the conversation to – do we think the rules for the model line up pretty well to the way the model looks or what we have come to expect to what has been written about the model.

We have brief bit where we also discuss if our own perceptions or biases filter through and if we’ve invented some of this along the way in our heads.  We spend so much time fantasizing about 40k that is a huge possibility.

Its kind of a fun talk as we wrap up this year and look forward to the next one. One more episode this year! Do you bring any bias to the way you think a model should preform to the way it actually does or how you feel the writers have interpreted it.

We don’t talk about how we might have been wrong about that really on this show but it’s a fun exersize to think about for future shows for sure.

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.
