FTN Episode 280 – Can You Win With The Worst?

FTN small square

We’re talking about Grey Knights this week. Recently they climbed a slot to be the second worst performing faction in the game right now, just above Blood Angels.  Is it possible to win with these guys?  Is it you or the Army List?

Hey hey,

Ricky is back this week to join Chris and I in the first part of the show. We’re then joined in part two by Skari from the Skaredcast.  We’re talking about Grey Knights… they were once a dominant faction but have now been relegated to the bottom tables.  Is it is the codex or the players?

The codex lacks a lot of synergy and power.. they definitely lost the Stratagem/Chapter Tactic lottery.   Still.. There is life in this book and hope for Grey Knight players.    We stat away from wishlisting or complaining about the codex and instead stick to ‘what we would take’ if we plan to win more than we lose.

You can’t afford to take a lot fat in your list and your troops are too expensive to pack in an excess of Command Points.  That seems to just fine though… The Stratagems you want to use are inexpensive and matter most at the start of the game when you have the most to burn anyway.

Start with Grand Master Dreadknights and three Strike Squads.

Coming up at the end of the month a few of us will be at the Barnyard Brawl. I’m happy to be a sponsor of this event and will be playing. The Wrong Way Kids will be putting on their first official public event later this year the Armageddon Series: Coastal Assault. Tickets are up for sale right now. Please join us. You will have a good time. It will be a full ITC format event and an excellent opportunity to get ITC overall and faction points.

We’re delighted to continue to represent Discount Games Inc as sponsor of our show. They are helping bring FTN to you. Please check them out and support the organizations that support us. Discount Games Inc. offers Games Workshop products at 15% off the suggested retail at their website here. You can send an email to the owner Jay. These guys run a podcast too! Check them out. I believe they currently have few of the GW Holiday Bundles still available too!

We proudly represent Firmer Terra as well. I had a great time speaking with one of the founders and I thought their offering would be PERFECT for a lot of gamers out there. Right now they are offering impressive shipping promotions to buyers in the US. Please check them out.

Thank you and Enjoy!

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.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
