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.

Congrats Justin!

Thank you Justin from Tucson for participating in our Rapidfire Giveaway.  I’m sure we will see great pics of this glow in the dark Ghost Stone from Terrainify in use on the tabletop.  While you’re at it, check out his band Apostles of Ale .

Thank you Terrainify for supplying a cool piece of terrain to give away on our show.

I’m hoping to have more events like this in the future from other great terrain companies out there.  Until next time, have a great narrative game.

Coming along nicely

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.

Terrain Index Tab

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 ngc40k@gmail.com

2015 Apoc Finale

The 2015 Apoc Finale was a overwhelming success. I wanted to thank all the participants for making it the best event to date. A huge thanks to Pegasus Games for letting us take up their entire gaming space. Big thank you to the event sponsors: Kromlech, Mechanical Warhorse and Secret Weapon Miniatures.  Thank you Aaron, Andy and Matt for providing the FAT mats that just made the terrain pop even more.  Special thanks to my friend Al for coming down and taking all the photos of the event.  Brian and David, the men behind the Chaos Incursion, a hearty thank you.  And thank you John from Pickle Jar bbq & pie for supplying the best food in Madison, WI.

Boy so many things to discuss, look for Episode 11, we will discuss the entire event from start to finish.  In the end we had a 5’x22′ table holding over 90,000 points.  Even John Kovalic, the artist of Dork Tower stopped by to see the spectacle.

The Tau ended up with three MVPs and the Imperial side had one.  The first Tau MVP was Imotekh for surviving the next two MVPs.  The next two MVPs for the Tau were the two Imperial Warlord Titans, catastrophically exploding in top of turns 2 and 3, removing nearly 60% of the imperial force.  The Imperial MVP was Jeremy and his Space Marine and Elysian army.  Single handedly dropping in the far back field sea of green and bravely challenging the xenos back objective for four solid turns.

In the end it was a xenos victory, 28 to 24.  The Imperial side never gave up and pressed hard to try to catch up from the half, but couldn’t quite pull it off.

Again, thank you everyone for participating and I look forward to seeing all of you next year for Kastorel Novem.  Check out the Apoc Luck page for photos.

May I Present. . . the Aquilla Cathedral

The goal, make it a large enough ruin for a Warhound to walk through.  That is one of my house Terryn in there for scale.  The board it is resting on is my normal 4’x6′ gaming board.  The other goal, make it have an Aquilla shape when viewed from above.  I’d say mission accomplished.
