FTN Episode 376 – Do New Models Mean New Rules? We Hope So!

FTN small square

Be’lakor is back in a big way.  I promise that’s not a pun.  This model is the latest from the Daemon line to get a massive makeover.  This begs the question – will we see new rules?  We hope so.  In this episode we talk about the model but then drift off into the lore..

Hey folks,

I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times – The game is better when we have strong bad guys that can handle the the strong good guys.  We all know that Marines will always be the focus of the lore and they drive tons of sales on the model side. That’s cool with me.

That doesn’t mean there is some mandate to make them better rules wise, of course though.  I think the game is much more enjoyable on some tangible level when the bad guys give as good as they can get.   Is this model going to be what sets off that powder keg?  I hope so.

We discuss the origins of Be’lakor model wise originally being from Warhammer Fantasy Battle and eventually making his way to 40k.

It’s so cool that we can have these amazing Daemon models in both game sets.  I know I plan to magnetize the casualty on his base in order to give him the ability to pull double duty.

We got the fact about the first female Necron wrong last week.  Thanks a lot for keeping us honest, folks.  We make that correction in this episode.

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.
