FTN Episode 317 – Ritual of the Damned Preview – Hot!

FTN small square

Adam, Ricky and Paul walk through the Ritual of the Damned supplement going up for pre-order this week.  Man-o-man, this is exactly the book that some players have been waiting for.  This book brings new rules to the Dark Angels, Grey Knights and the Thousand Sons.  Let’s dive in!

Hi all,

Another spectacular release from Games Workshop.  This one breaths some much needed life into some flailing factions.  If you’re a longtime Dark Angel player you are going to be exceptionally pleased.  This book allows you to field some of the iconic namesake units of the DA with super buffs to the Ravenwing and Deathwing.  The army will play very much like you may expect them to giving extra mobility or durability while still being ‘fun’ to move your figures around the table.

The Grey Knights got a ton of help.  An extra layer of special rules have been added for them in the forms of Tides of the Warp.  This is something the GK can manipulate in the psychic phase that gives them situational buffs.  The high point cost of the GK mean you need all the help you can get with how killy the game is right now.

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.

Last but not least are the Thousand Sons.  The 1kSons get 9 new army list options to choose from that each come with a Psychic Power, a Warlord Trait and a Relic.  There are some spicy ones in there that we talk about during the show.  There are several abilities that allow the shooty marines to ‘appear out of nowhere’ and deliver punishing fire.

It may not be enough to attract a lot of new players to the faction but you’re definitely going to be pleased with the collection you’ve acquired so far.  Fans of the 1kSons will be pleased.  It goes without saying that these books are a must have for players of these factions.

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.
