VALEDOR! ApocLuck 2017

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.

Here is a link to all the 2017 Apoc Luck, Valedor: The Mirrored Shield.

Of course like everything, it all starts with putting your idea on paper.

Apoc Luck XVI 2016 Finale

Another great year in the books.  Three years and running.

A huge thank you to our event sponsors: Kromlech, Mechanical Warhorse, and Secret Weapon Miniatures.  Thank you Pickle Jar for catering the event, the food was incredible.

I set out to theme the event after Kastorel Novem and get as many Ork players in the community to participate.  By years end, there was nearly 80,000 pts on the table.  An entire side of Orks!  It was glorious.  Please check out the photo album of the event.  Norm built a custom Ork Blasta Bomma from a B-24 Liberator for the event, it is amazing.

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 016

The battle on grey plastic continues

I’ve been working on my Raven Guard.  The “worn effects” from AK has really turned out nicely.  The first Apoc Luck is just over a week away and the theme is Kastorel Novem.  I’m hoping to get this batch of 40 completed by then.

I joined the ICs hobby progress challenge and also signed up for the 1HourANight Facebook group.  I figure it would give me a little extra motivation.  Thus far it has worked.  So go check out The Independent Characters site and join the 2016 Hobby Progress challenge and wage war on bare plastic!
