FTN Episode 354 – Is the New Necron Codex Good? Bonus Orktober Coverage too!

FTN small square

Red takes center stage this episode as we take a serious look at what this week’s new Necron codex brings to this faction.  This is the most compelling the Necrons have ever been. Tons more options, tons more flavor, but is it good?  No matter what the answer to that question is it is a whole new life for Necron players and we’re excited.

Hey everyone,

I know there is a ton of Marine coverage out there and we will certainly get to those but we couldn’t resist going right for the Necons to see if they have what it takes to become the new super bad faction in the Warhammer Universe.

The Necrons absolutely have some heavy hitters with the Nightbringer being a super star.  Super Star God that is…  See what i did?  This guy has all the rules you need to get a ton of play out of this dude and if you’re a long time collector and have him on your shelf already then you will be incredibly happy.

Necron Warriors will make a serious come back as well.  There are some fairly subtle new faction traits that help the warriors control the momentum of the game with some really relevant shooting. Death by 1000 cuts is what the Warriors will excel at.  You’ll never regret taking these as long as you master their movement tricks.

The Necrons may suffer from not enough units having the Core keyword.  We don’t talk about this on the show but I want to put it out there as warning.  When you’re building your lists make sure the synergies are not overly reliant on you needing this.

After the break we kick off our Orktober coverage.  We talk about taking Battle Wagons and Trukks to keep yourself alive in this deadly edition.  Next week we’re going to focus on obscure Ork lore.  Weird.. I know.. it’s time to get Narrative.

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!

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.
