First in Fifteen

img_3273

Had a great time at Misty Mountain Games last night.  It’s been a good fifteen years since I’ve played #BloodBowl.  Thank you Tom for showing me the ropes again.  I was reminded why I loved the game.  I threw him for a loop with some unorthodox line setups.  It worked.  My Averland Asskickers won 2 – 1.  I’m sure he was taking it easy on me.

 

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.

Our very own Matt went home with an NGC40k Party Wagon for being the best sportsman of the event.

 

Episode 024; Keep Walken, a childrens book

In our twenty fourth episode Mark and Peter discuss a wide variety of topics including what we’ve been up to in the hobby, games played and the local Horus Heresy Weekender.

Segment 1: We continue our discussion on the Main Rule Book fluff. Why? Cause there’s some great stuff in there and we wanted to tell you about what you may have been overlooking. This time we cover the Orks and Dark Eldar.

Segment 2: We continue our Exploration of the World of 30k. We know many have taken this leap already, but for those dipping their toes in like Mark and I, we thought it would be a learning experience for us and our listeners. Though for every likeness between 30k and 40k, the game is very much not the same. In this episode we complete the Troops choices.

Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the line is holding by the thinnest of threads.

The Mechanical Warhorse giveaway is complete. The winner is announced at the end of the episode.

Episode 023

 

Local Warhammer Store

img_2845I stopped by the local Warhammer store today.  Had a great conversation with Tony, the store manager, about various products and easing gamer entry into the hobby by promoting more Killteam type and various lower point level games.  I personally love playing at that point level, units matter more, and every model lost truly affects your armies overall performance.

He mentioned some Necromunda type events and a future Kill Team campaign being ran in the store.  He was excited about the upcoming Blood Bowl release.  I have to say, he made me excited for it too. It’s been a long time since I played on a pitch.

We both discussed our excitement for the new snow texture paint.  Best of all, he explained how to get great results with the newer gemstone paints.  A man of knowledge he is.  Glad to have you in our area.

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.

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.
