FTN Episode 295 – Codex Space Marines – Beware the Invictor

FTN small square

We take a deeper dive in Codex Space Marines this week.  In the preshow we tried to make a bare bones Brigade just for the additional Command Points but eh…  It wasn’t working out.  If feel like you had a lot of toys but it wasn’t a cohesive force of supportive units… Listen to figure out where we went wrong.

Hey guys,

The reviews are in.  The Space Marines are good with lots of good units.  There have been improvement to existing units and some brand new units to choose from.  The Invictor Warsuit is one of those units.  Man…   It’s taken some heat due to the model but the rules are banging.

In the last updates units like Aggressors and Inceptors got improvements but they are even better now with the Shock Assault rule and an increase to their wounds and attacks.  This is before you add in Chapter Tactics.

Please please please check out the new Forge The Narrative objective markers. These things look awesome. Ordering a set is a good way to support one of our sponsors AND the show. Find them here.

The hard part will be deciding what to take.  Like we kick off with, the challenge will be figuring out how to make a ‘cohesive’ and supportive force.  Units like the Chaplain are going to assist with this.  They are basically an auto include how with their ability to buff themselves and the units around them.  What do you think?  What are you most looking forward to about getting it on the table?

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.

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.
