It’s 40k Apocalypse. It’s a pot luck. It’s Apoc Luck. #Apocluck
Over the weekend we continued our journey into Kastorel Novem. We played the Dagger Force Screen, apocalypse style. 8 players with over 30,000pts, fighting for control of the far flank. There was a battle for air supremacy that would have made the Spitfires over England proud. In the end, the Imperial forces prevailed and bought precious time for more Elysians to arrive and strengthen their beachhead. Here are some pictures from the event. Visit www.facebook.com/apocluck for more photos and details of current and past events.
In our seventeenth episode Mark and Peter continue their coverage of the Exterminatus Campaign. Other discussions include Where they’ve been, What they’ve been working on, Life & Career, Adepticon, Mob Rules, The Narrative Guys, and Eagle Ordinary.
Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as Sergeant Valus makes final preparations for the defense of Sabre Ridge.

The Heart of the Community campaign to raise funds and models for the stolen Adepticon armies is going strong. A bunch of models were donated and thus far we’ve raised over $100.
This is fantastic, but don’t let it stop there. Six armies were stolen and we all know how expensive this hobby is.
I want to give a special shout out to David and Matt, the two guys that ran the Friday Night Titan event at Adepticon. These guys practically opened their closets and said take whatever you can use. This was unexpected and I think shows incredible character.
If you want to know more, review the Heart of the Community tab.
If you want to show your support, go to the Heart of the Community tab and find how how. Or contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me through Facebook. I’ll be happy to let you know how.
We will have a brand new episode next week covering Exterminatus amongst other exciting things. Sorry for the delay in episode release. My career pulled me away for a few weeks.
If you are wanting to contribute to help your fellow gamers get back on the table as quickly as possible, they could still use your support. We’ve had two generous local donors and I’ve put funds in the pot as well. Six armies lost is a lot to recover from, but I know the community will come through for them. For more information on what happened please view the link “Heart of the Community”. If you are a store and you wish to donate to help these gamers, we will mention you throughout the year on the show.
In the meantime, Have a great narrative game everybody.
Several members of our community on their way to Adepticon, had their car stolen in Milwaukee. In this car were six warhammer40k armies. Two members had their regular armies taken and all four players lost their Adepticon armies. I’m reaching out to the local and broader community for support on getting these guys back on the tables as quickly as we can. I know the community is ruthless on the tabletop, but we are a close community of Big Hearts.
There are several ways to show your support:
-Send an unbuilt kit or a constructed model of one of the armies taken, email me for my address info at email@example.com.
-I started an account to pool fund replacements for them as well.(send paypal funds to: firstname.lastname@example.org)
-Of course any other way you wish to show support is always welcome.
The armies taken were Raven Guard, Ultramarines, Ad Mech, Khorne and Tzeentch Demons and Astra Millitarum.
I’ve created a page that I will leave up so players can continue their support until the end of April.
I stumbled on. . . stumbled ha,they were hard to miss sporting such excellent Astra Millitarum cosplay. I approached their table and was blown away by the comic art.
Sarah is the artist and also a member of a roll playing group that has been playing “Only War”, the Warhammer40k RPG by Fantasy Flight Games. She has been bringing their stories to life through her art in the form of an online comic titled Eagle Ordinary. The online comic is produced weekly and thus far I’ve found it to be absolutely brilliant. Please check it out.
It was a great time with some great players at Adepticon in Chicago. Huge thanks to David and Matt for running the Titanicus event. I had a lot of fun and I look forward to participating next year. Cheers to my fellow Imperial titan players; Alex (warhound), Ben (black reaver) and Ted (hazard strip reaver). I brought my Warlord. Together we were able to thwart the Chaos advance and stop their plans of producing titans from a converted Imperial titan manufactorum. Our objective was to destroy the power facility to the manufactorum. The Chaos faction did not make this an easy task. On a side note, Ted traveled all the way from Anchorage, Alaska to participate in the event. He is from the “Mob Rules” podcast, please check out his show.
As I head off to Adepticon, I check a few last things before making my way to the Windy City. One of those things is my emails. Low and behold something from Black Library. I open it an this is what I find and I start to giggle. Pop up 40k books for my children. . . Black Library for the Win!
Don’t worry, I understand this is an April fools joke.
