FTN Episode 353 – Chaos Can Beat Space Marines – Will You Serve the Dark Gods?

FTN small square

Chaos is good but you have to work for it.  Sort of fitting for the succor of the dark gods right?  It looks all simple at first and then you find yourself staying up all night painting new units!  TJ Lannigan joins the regular cast today to talk about his favorite subject – Chaos…

Hey folks,

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Strong bad guys makes for an exciting game.  Chaos are one of the major evil super factions in this game and it’s so nice to hear there is still life in this faction.

We talk about what’s been working for TJ and get pretty deep in the weeds on Command Point strategies and synergies.  Thanks for indulging us while we take these strolls through the super combos.

I mention up top that Chaos needs a little work to be ‘good’ and it does.  We’re just starting to realize how the landscape of the game is changing and that evolution  is busting open the door to what lists are viable.   I’m a big believer in playing what you want to play but sometimes we have to show our friends that the old boss is still the new boss and play some heavy hitting stuff.

I was especially happy to hear that the Great Unclean One was making an appearance on the table top again.  I absolutely love this glorious model and look forward to painting up a few more Nurgle squads in the near future.

In the second part of the show we round out the Chaos talk and then jump to a hobby segment where we talk about the dreaded Mold Lines.   They creep up when you least suspect it all the time. The time to address them is when you see it.  It may be painful to scrape down a surface that’s already been painted but you’ll always feel better once you’ve fixed it.   Send us some pics!

Well crap.. I already told you about the hobby segment that normally goes in this space.   I’ll be on an episode of Lorehammer coming up soon.  It’s a blast to talk to those guys and I’m very thankful to be invited to their broadcast.

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. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
