FTN Episode 427 – Adepticon Recap and Community Spotlight

FTN small square

Very glad to be back this week.  Very sorry we missed last week.  We try to never miss a beat so we hope to make up for it on this episode.  We recap Adeticon, the state of the 40k meta and in the middle of the show we have an awesome community spotlight segment.

Hi folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

In the middle of the show we have a cool segment with Steven Vallee who is amazing community organizer in the Southeast US.  You can find information on the convention we highlight in the segment here.  Rocky Top Gamecon

Adepticon did not disappoint.  It remains a world class event and spirits were high the entire convention.  The 40k meta was DOMINATED by Harlequins as top end players flocked to the incredibly efficient Voidweavers.  There were many other stories from the event like Tau and Necrons also competing for the top slots but those stories are overshadowed by the Harlequin on Harlequin final.

Players will definitely have to account for Harlequins at events but also make note – DO NOT SLEEP on the rest of the Aeldari Codex.  there is a lot of power there.  Warhammer 40k is in a great state of competitive play, and I really mean that, more and more is getting injected into the competitive ecosystem.  it’s easy to just look at the headlines but there are tons of threats out there where player skill will be the only determining factor.  Let’s see what you’ve got out there!

The hobby segment is about White Dwarf tutorials this week.  Remember, a lot of  tutorials are based on models but as the reader you can just focus on the colors used if the faction doesn’t apply to you.

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.
