FTN Episode 368 – 40k FAQ Review and How To Get Started With Terrain?

FTN small square

We give a brief run down of the major 40k FAQ changes we saw last week.  There are TON of changes and point updates but rather than go over the whole shebang we hit the highlights and will discuss the changes as they come up in future episodes.  We talk about 40k terrain in the back half of the show and ‘when to splurge.’  Let’s go!

Hey folks,

Don’t forget we’ll be talking about the Las Vegas nOpen. This is an amazing project undertaken by some dedicated broadcasters and streamers. This is going to be an absolute blast. Please check out the website and mark your calendars.

Please get some Merch if you can! You can grab a t-shirt and other goodies at the link here. If you order yours by Jan 15th you can have it in time for the event! We’ll have raffles and stuff coming too and as special giveaways for people that use the #lvno leading up to and during the broadcast. There are ton of amazing people partnered to make this happen. Please join us if you can.

The FAQ did actually answer some Frequently Asked Questions this time. There are lots of subtle but impactful changes.  The change to scoring objectives in the last half of the last turn is freaking awesome and we don’t say enough good things about it.  I think the game is well on its way to becoming less of a ‘go first to win’ situation.

After the break we jump into our first discussion on how to start your own terrain collection.  This is such a weird topic.  Of course we all want crazy good terrain on our tables but how do we justify the cost and the time?  The answer is – you get to decide that for yourself.

We strongly encourage you to be strategic with how you tackle the terrain question.  First and foremost please remember it needs to perform a function on the table.  Don’t go out and spend a ton only to find out you didn’t actually enhance your play experience.   Then, set a budget.  Buy what you can when you can and don’t beat yourself up about it.

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. This is coming soon- I promise!

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.
