FTN Episode 490 – Chaos Space Marines Take Home The 40k World Champs!

FTN small square

We give a broad rundown of the Warhammer World Championships and Grand Narrative Event that happened last weekend in Atlanta, GA USA.  It was amazing. Some of the best 40k ever to be played by some of the best players of all time in a competition setting.  On the other side of the doors were hundreds of 40k players having the time of their lives in the Grand Narrative.  A true event to behold.

Hey folks,

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.  It’s the best sticker I’ve ever owned.

We also started a Patreon for the FTN show.  This will help us a lot in the form of being able to hire an editor and a few other things.   If it is anywhere within your ability to support us on that platform please consider doing so. The link is right here.

Paul and Adam were on the mics live streaming the whole weekend while Red and his fam were playing in the Grand Narrative.  We run down our experiences this episode.  You owe it to yourself to put this event on your bucket list.

We definitely expected Chaos Space Marines to do well but it was difficult to call them out as the winner.  There were top tier players piloting almost every faction in the game over the weekend.  Leagues of Votann came out of obscurity, Aeldari almost kept their top spot, Space Marines came in second with Marnues Calgar of all people in the list!

A Hoard style CSM list took it down in the end by being able to choke the primary and causing bad trades with their Space Marine opponent.  That is the extreme high level take. The games played on stream were spectacular and you should check them out over on the Warhammer twitch feed.

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.
