FTN Episode 313 – Send in the Clowns and Big Ups to the 40k Community

FTN small square

Adam and Paul put in a two hander here.  The first part of the show is basically a big arms hug to the great state of the current Warhammer 40k Community and those people that are promoting the positive culture.  After the break we talk about Harlequins.

Hi all,

It’s a good time to be in the hobby and has been for a long time.  It is a brave new world.  In the first segment we talk a little about our history in the hobby and ask ourselves about models we wished we’d have gotten over the years.

Towards the end of the first segment the conversation shifts to a bit of a love fest about the tournament scene, the people in 40k and just a general appreciation for the hobby.

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.

After the break we talk about Harlequins.  These guys may actually dance into the tournament conversation again.  Point reductions make it possible to make an army with an actual usable amount of Command Points.  There is a wealth of Stratagems in the dex that NEVER got used because of the severe budget you had to be on with your CPs.  I’m anxious to see if that actually changes after the point drops.

The good stuff in the Harlequin Codex got better with point drops and CP availability.  If you were a fan of this faction before you’re really in luck.

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.

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.
