FTN Episode 471 – Will You Be Getting The New Marines? Not Everyone Thinks So.

FTN small square

The memes of these Desolation Marines have been outstanding. I’m sure we’ll continue to see them pop up but that might change a little once hobbyist get them in their hands and have the opportunity to paint them something other that Ultramarines Blue.  We’ll no doubt see head swaps and custom bits and all that jazz.  The absolute winner for me is the new Brutalis Dreadnought. It’s a beast!

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.

These new marines have been all sorts of up in arms.  Some folks don’t know how they even made it past the design phase.  Some folks are scratching their head trying to figure out how they will make it into army lists. Some folks are just asking why?  To me, a lot of those questions will get answered in time as players choose to give them a shot and start to layer on the best Chapter Tactics for them.  There are other things in this box too though…

I will absolutely be looking to play with the Brutalis Dreadnought.  It has all the sorts of things that makes my Blood Angel heart sing.  The claw variant is the one that jumps out to me but you  can make a case for any of the configuration.  I am also starting with the multi melta hip guns.  I plan be getting up close and personal.

At the back of the show we revisit the topic of not showing up to the table beaten.  Approach every game like a winnable game and with that mindset you will absolutely win more games.

Adam is playing in the Cherokee Open over the weekend and bringing Grey Knights.  How will he do?  Find out next week, ha!

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.
