fFTN small square

Wow.. 300 of these bad boys.  Thanks for joining us.  We’re joined by Pete Foley from the GW Book and Box studio for a very special segment and look inside one of the design teams.  Later in the show we go over an unconventional Space Marine list that nearly took down a giant tournament.  What are you guys brewing?

Hey guys,

We are incredibly thankful to our special guest, Pete Foley, this week.  We get a candid look into his journey with Games Workshop and some insight to how the current design studio operates. We talk about his involvement in various areas of the company and how he keeps the hobby fresh for himself.

In the second part of the show we talk about a buddy of mine and his ‘unconventional’ Space Marine list.  I say unconventional but this guy has been an innovator in Space Marine list design for years.  It was very interesting to see what he put together.

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.

His list relies a lot on the Character Auras and Heavy Bolters.  Like.. A lot of Heavy Bolters.  It’s something we’ve flirted a lot with on the show before but he actually made it work.  Another buddy also suggested Contemptor Mortis Dreads with double Lascannon Arms.  For 168ish points and buffs and stratagems you can layer on them they are a compelling option vs Lascannon Predators.

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.

Firmer Terra unveiled a new product that you need. It’s called the Omicron Battle System. Its a game tool organizer. Check it out! The Finishing Moves segment is all about painting Black. We discuss a new way to do it just in time for Raven Guard and Iron Hands releases..

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.
