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.

Episode 021; They’ve taken the city

In our twenty first episode Mark and Peter discuss a wide variety of topics including what we’ve been up to in the hobby, games played, Apoc Luck XV Skalk’s Assault, 30k action in the community and influences on game length.

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: Hobby Spotlight: Elysian Command Squad. We discuss the little changes and bits that Peter used to make his command squad unique. We also discuss the special thematically driven rules that we created for the commander himself, Flint Westwood.

Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the ork bikes breach the the lines in advance of the endless ork war machine.

The Mechanical Warhorse giveaway is still going. In an awesome act of kindness, Carlos sent us his new Model 30 Billboard to give away to our listeners.

Episode 021

Elysian Command Squad

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.

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.

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.

“Go Big of Go Home”

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!
