FTN Episode 421 – Aint No Shame In Your Game – Enjoy 40k However You Want

FTN small square

Some folks let us know that they felt like they had to enjoy this giant hobby the same way as they felt others were doing so.  We come right out of the gate and say that isn’t true. We all know that but sometimes you lose sight of it.  Its your time. Your fun. Any investment you make in this hobby is completely up to you.

Hey hey.

A little break from what we normally talk about to have a feel good segment.  It’s a little bit of a hurrah of a segment but hey.. I think we needed it.  Take a deep breath, have fun and we hope the first half of the show is a little brightness to the day.

When we’re looking at social media is so easy to get  caught up and think we have to like something or be enjoying something the same way that other people do.  You don’t.  We talk for a bit about that concept and hope it lands well with you folks who listen.  Obviously it doesn’t apply to everyone but maybe knowing what other people could be going through is helpful.  Perspective and all that.

In the back half of the show we talk tips for list.  We talk about what people are building around for their Tau, GSC and Custodes.

Custodes are really making an impact on the meta and that’s cool!  They are a great entry point for people who are fans of the lore and the army travels EXTREMELY well which is cool for those of us who like to make it to tournaments around the country.

GSG is going to take some time to find that perfect build but Tau..  Tau seem to have a lot going on and it’s difficult to make a bad build.  These Xenos will have folks scratching their head for weeks to come.

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.
