FTN Episode 153 – Will Sigmar Lead the Way for 40k?

Episode 153 is here, download it now! Tournament and Hobby talk all in the same place. Say it ain’t so!

Yo yo,

The more I look at the Order Battletome Sylvaneth I see it screaming at me as a future template for 40k codexes.

Everything about this book attempts to embrace the concept of using the army how you want to do it.  Want to pick your warlord trait??  Go ahead.  Want to leave your spells up to the dice gods?  Roll away.. Or pick.. Up to you.

I really like that.  Personally, I think random rolls can be good and create exciting games.  But the more competitive we try to be the more that random rolls cause me to pull my hair out.  Its a pretty big double edge sword.

I am not going to claim that one way is better than another but I think it is absolutely great that Games Workshop has figured out a way to appeal to multiple sects of gamers all in one book.   If this tactic is successful it stands to reason we’d see something similar in 40k.

We have a lot of excitement for the ATC event happening in Tennessee this weekend too.  It is hard to hide and we do quite a bit of talking about it in every segment.  Good luck to everyone attending and we hope to see you there!

Thank you and Enjoy!

Each episode will be 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!

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.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
If you like this sort of chatter we also do a live webshow every Monday at 10pm EST. You can find those posted over on the FTN Google + Page. The rebroadcast is over on our YouTube page.
