FTN Episode 307 – Is it Better to Attack or Join the 40k Tournament Meta?

FTN small square

If we are correct in predicting that the Salamanders will be the army list to beat soon is it better to get on board the Salamander train or build lists that beat them?  With all the Marine goodness coming out what are the Xenos players taking?  Are Tau the ultimate list?

Hi everyone,

We jump right in taking some major assumptions that Salamanders are going to be strong.  They will be so strong they will attract a lot of fringe Marine players.  Do you beat them or join them?

Tau have a ton of really good options, especially against opponents with limited long range effectiveness.   Armies with gun platform transports are also at a huge advantage.  Right now any unit with 2-3 guns with over 10 wounds is on my watch list for units to take.

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.

Almost every hobby moment I’ve got is devoted to getting ready for a couple of tournaments coming up. That includes the brevity of these show notes! Many apologies – better show notes coming soon..

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.
