FTN Episode 492 – Is Legions Imperialis Right For You? Big Fun With Little Minis

FTN small square

We break down the ins and outs of the brand new game Legions Imperialis.  Its fun, back and forth action with a whole new line of models.. plus some that have been out a while that you can bring in from other games.  The rulebook has everything you need to know to get going in just one purchase.

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.

We gush a little bit about the new game from Games Workshop.  It’s an interesting new take on a venerable classic.  Space Marine Epic came out a long time ago and was one of my first purchases with my own dollars in the hobby.  That games brought in lots of factions and maybe we’ll see them one day but Legions Imperialis takes place in the Horus Heresy timeline with just Space Marine legions and Solar Auxliera at the moment.

With that said, you still have TONS of options and different ways to build your fighting force based.  You can even bring in flyers from Aeronautic and Titans from Titanicus.  Wow.  Pretty neat to be able to do that and the rules seem to be pretty streamlined to expand as you grow with the game.

We gush on about the new rules and the possibilities.  In the middle of the show we sit down with our main vendor sponsor for the show to talk about what’s going on with his show and how you can save on the new action.  We also talk about why you might want to hit him up for pre-orders in the future.

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.
