Kromlech is back!

With us wrapping up Kasterol Novem, an epic 40k battle that revolves around the Imperials trying to thwart a great Ork advance.  It only seems fitting and I’m crazy excited to announce it.

Kromlech is coming back for a second year to sponsor the Apoc Luck Finale.  Some of the best Ork miniatures on the market.  I’ve got a ton of Orc Great Coats myself and they look amazing.  Go check them out.

Episode 020

Sorry for the wait listeners.  Mark and I will be back on our bimonthly release schedule moving forward.  See you in two weeks.

 

Apoc Luck XV Skalk’s Assault

The Orks push back the Elysians and stop the Raven Guard from cutting off their reinforcements.  The Orks mass for a counter offensive to drive them off their continent.

A greater threat approaches.

The tendrils of the Leviathan have reached the sector.  The dangers posed by the Tyranids became clear as the skies to the east darkened and leather skinned wings delivered teeth and claw.  The biomass on the planet is great.  It will be a powerful beacon to the ever consuming dragon.  Emperor’s throne. . . we are all doomed.

Episode 019: So you want to be an Ultramarine

In our nineteenth episode Mark and Peter return after what seems like forever.  We discuss what we’ve been up to in the hobby and games played.  We also discuss The Narrative Guys Beta, the global campaign that Peter discussed in previous episodes; and how we participated in that.

Segment 1:  We review the Space Marines Codex, NGC style.  We delve codex deep into the codex fluff of the Ultramarines.

Segment 2:  We create a narrative campaign from scratch, on the fly.   We go through the who, why and what of the campaign process.  It was a lot of fun creating it and look forward to the first game.

Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the orks make their advance on the Sabre Ridge.  (a repeat of last episodes, sorry, family life got in the way of recording the newest segment)

 

Episode 019

Apoc Luck XIII

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.

Episode 016; Grand Scale 40k Games

In our sixteenth episode Mark and Peter talk 40k on a grand scale. The discussions include the Milwaukee based D-Company annual Big Game and hotel troubles. Peter follows this discussion with the detailed concerns, potential expanding, inner workings and overall growing pains of the Apoc Luck event.

Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as Cadian Lieutenant Sahmlu informs Sergeant Valus of his defense positions along Sabre Ridge.

Episode 016

Upcoming Apoc Luck

The upcoming Apoc Luck is shaping up nicely.  As I’ve discussed on the show, we are doing “The Raid on Kastorel Novem”.  We have a seven players creating a solid wall of Orks on one side and another seven representing the Imperium.  And yes, the Raven Guard will be present.

Over 40,000 pts of smaller units.  In addition, 12 Super Heavies will be on the table.

This is an excellent start to the Apoc Luck season.
