FTN Episode 359 – Will You Serve In the Deathwatch?

FTN small square

We crack open the Deathwatch codex this week and talk about a few of the changes and a few things you may see on the tabletop.  In the back of the show we talk a little lore.  It’s interesting that the Deathwatch have become a fully fledged codex backed up by the full book of Marine things.

Hey everyone,

The Corvus Blackstar is a divisive unit.  Most people either love it or hate it with no in between just due to the way it looks.   I’m not the biggest fan but Red points out on the show that it looks very similar to the crafts from Aliens the movie.  I can see that and I bet this is part of the reasons that folks have the feelings they do.

The rules for it have never been too bad but it’s just funny how people barely ever talk about the rules, just how it looks.

We do spend most of the show talking about the Deathwatch and it does seem like these guys have gone from a ‘fringe ally unit’ to a fully functional army.  The modeling opportunities are there and now the rules stack up.  I bet we see folks expanding their collections or dipping into this faction now that they get access to everything from the Marines.

Paul talks a little bit about his painting journey with the Silent King.  Pics are up on twitter @warmaster_tpm and on Instagram as fightswithdice

Going into the holidays can be a stressful time and even more stressful with what the world is going through right now.  We hope you’re keeping safe and sane out there.  Feel free to hit us up in chat if you want some good hobby vibes.

For anyone who has read this far down we’ve recorded the first video with myself and Oscar Lars where we review a listener submitted model. It should be produced and ready to go mid November. Please keep checking back and if you have a model you’d like us to review for how it would stack up vs the Battle Ready standard and the Artists Standard, hit us up in a private message with a pic.

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.
