It is Sunday Night oh What a Night

Tonight the infamous Dan and Glenn from The Narrative Guys was on the show.  I had a great time chatting them up, two wonderful people that are passionate about the hobby and narrative gaming.

The evening started off like a scary movie for anyone  in media as my equipment that was supposed to be simple was failing me.  I went with an even simpler approach and it ran great.  But let me tell you for 30min, I was screaming like Jamie Lee Curtis inside.

We had a great conversation from what got them into 40k, to what drove them to narrative gaming, to their philosophies on terrain building.  I can’t wait to share that with you guys.  Look for that in episode 37.

To Glenn and Dan, huge thank you for being patient for this interview.  I look forward to buying you a beer at Adepticon.  Until then, have a great narrative game.

 

I spent the day at Pegasus Games in Madison, playing in an event ran by the local MYCL gaming group. Kenny from the Combat Phase was the event host. I had a great time, met some new people and even won Best Painted. I was really happy to be able to participate in an event that wasn’t my own for a change.


The event was a more narrative driven tournament, which meant the missions were story driven with an over arching theme, in this case the great rift as it happened. Also, this required a two paragraph story on your force and they wanted it based on a Black Library book or codex. Mine was the Honoured Sons of course, expanding on the one paragraph about them in the codex that has them fighting a Tyranid Hive Fleet Jormungandr.

I included some pics of a few armies that were on display.

Thanks again Kenny for running this event.

Pegasus Gone Gothic

Hey Listeners, I’m back again with another installment of Model Terrain Company of the Month.  We continue with Pegasus Hobbies terrain.

This post will be quick and dirty, but should be loads of fun.  One of the most versatile kit series I’ve seen out there is the Gothic Buildings and Gothic Ruins kits.  They are totally modular, lock in tightly with each other and offer up some great terrain creating capabilities.  I’ve made plenty of structural ruins, a chapel large enough to house a Warhound titan and I have plans for many more buildings.  I’ve seen loads of uses from tight hab blocks by the Narrative Guys to the towering superstructure of an Imperator Titan at the Apocalypse event at Adepticon.

The kits are simple, yet oh man what you can do with them.  The Pegasus Hobbies Gothic buildings are durable all plastic kits, super easy to paint up, and best of all, they look great on the table top.  Here are some of mine.

Let’s have some fun with this.  Whatever hobby group site you see this on, including the podcast Facebook page, post images of what you have created with these kits.

I have a lot more from Pegasus Hobbies to share throughout the month, so stay tuned.

Episode 036

Pegasus Hobbies

February’s Model Terrain Company of the Month is Pegasus Hobbies.  They have some great kits and terrain accessories.  With the re-introduction of the squat to the world of Necromunda and 40k, industrial terrain is once again at the forefront of everyone’s mind. (by the way, how awesome was that video!  GW continuing to nail it.)

Pegasus Hobbies Hexegon Construction sets are highly detailed, sturdy plastic kits.  They are modular and offer lots of room to create some unique set ups.  The kits easily mesh with any other industrial style terrain you may have.

It wouldn’t be industrial without pipes running this way and that.  Their Chemical Plant Construction kit offers plenty of pipes, elbows, turn wheels, and various size pressure tanks.  This is another kit that stands great on its own or is easily blended in with existing terrain.

 

They also have carry one of the few bridges on the market.  The Pegasus Hobbies Technobridge is simple, sturdy and very fitting for crossing industrial drainage channels.
