Peter, you haven’t posted in nearly three weeks, where on earth have you been?
Well it all started several months ago when I was planning the scenery for the 2017 Apock Luck series. This years theme was Apocalypse Warzone Valedor. I decided this was the year I would up my game and really hit it. I started pooling in terrain from all over, Gamecraft Miniatures, Horizon Creation 3D, Mechanical Warhorse, Terrainify, to name a few.
I had been posting a steady countdown to the event on the 1houranight facebook group. It drew a lot of attention. It came down to the wire at 2am the day of when I finally said what’s done has to be it.
Later that morning, nearly 60,000pts of points was on the board. Even Kenny from the Combat Phase podcast participated. It was glorious.
I used this video How to create rubble paste by EonsOfBattle for much of my base material. I had to scale it up a bit, but I think I have figured it out and it’s looking great. The idea was to create bases for those ruin corners that so many companies love to produce, but not attach them to the corners so you can change it up every time. I sized most of the pieces to the Urban FATMat.
Every battle has a story, every story has a stage and every scene requires spectacular terrain to help tell the tale.
Check out the newly added Terrain Index Tab. It is a compiled list of terrain by type from various companies to help gamers find just what they are looking for. I have a long list of companies to add yet. This is only the beginning.
If you know of a company that belongs on this list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Wargames Con is a tabletop gaming convention and tournament for multiple gaming systems including Warhammer 40k, Warmachine and Hordes, Flames of War, Infinity and X-Wing! It takes place August 26th through the 28th in Austin, Texas.
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,
hurry up and lock in your place at the table. If we want to see more events like this, we need to give them our full support and sell them out every time they are offered. Follow the links provided, team up with a friend, book your hotel, get your tickets and play your heart out.
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.
In our twentieth episode Mark and Peter return after another long stint. We discuss what we’ve been up to in the hobby and games played.
Segment 1: The battle for Chargis III in the Vestega System continues. Just who is Lord Bandrois? We also continue the campaign creation by discussing what we plan to do for the second installment of the Bandrois campaign.
Segment 2: Interesting Places on the Web. We cover a few cool places that have been passed on to us by others. We also tip our hat to one of Pete’s favorite youtube channels as they bid their followers farewell.
Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the ork bikes breach the the lines in advance of the endless ork war machine.
This one is for Mark O. I saw you had all that aquarium terrain on your table. To give you ideas I wanted to show you the alien terrain my friend made from bulk aquarium vegetation he purchased online, on the cheap. Hope this inspires you.
