Episode 021

Elysian Command Squad

Two beers to Dabuque and 3 days from Wargames Con

Only three days out.  I can’t wait to see my narrative buds in Texas.  The narrative event is jam packed.  There is still room in the solo events from what I’m told.  So you can still partake in some narrative goodness put on by the best in the business, The Narrative Guys.

This is going to be one heck of a weekend in Austin.  See you there.

Excursions Beyond The Call

Hey Listeners,

If you are wanting to keep up with the events of the Bandrois Campaign, visit Mark’s blog Excursions Beyond The Call.  He’s been writing the narrative behind what is going on for his force related to the campaign.  He’s got a lot of great pictures of each game.

He periodically posts hobby updates, ideas and other narrative things he’s up to.

He also has plenty of pictures of his works as a professional artist.

The Narrative Guys, fresh off the heels of the LVO have put together another massive narrative campaign event.  I’ve been telling you about some of the cool stuff we have been cooking up.  Piece by piece it is coming together.  Fantastic story lines, kick ass terrain and narrative driven 40k.  I can’t wait to hang out with the Dan and Glenn again and roll some dice.

Attention: they are looking for one more admech player to join the narrative team event and the solo event has several openings.  So if you want to play on terrain like this,

Thanks for sticking with us for One Year

Unreal that it’s been one year since we started this adventure.  We set out to be different, drive the narrative, be a positive voice in our community and I hope we lived up to the expectations we set for ourselves.  The only true testament to us meeting those expectations is our ever growing listenership.

To help us celebrate this milestone, Carlos from Mechanical Warhorse sent us one of his new Model 30 Billboards to give to our listeners.  It seemed only appropriate that we celebrate our One year the same way we kicked this whole thing off.  Thank you Carlos for being such a wonderful supporter of the show and events we run.

To get entered to win, leave us an Itunes review or ‘Like’ the NGC40k podcast facebook page.  We will draw a winner in Episode 024.

Thank you everyone for being with us on this journey.  Here’s to another year, Cheers!
