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.

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

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.

Elysian Command Squad

Thanks for sticking with us for One Year

Unreal that it’s been one year since we started this adventure.  We set out to be different, drive the narrative, be a positive voice in our community and I hope we lived up to the expectations we set for ourselves.  The only true testament to us meeting those expectations is our ever growing listenership.

To help us celebrate this milestone, Carlos from Mechanical Warhorse sent us one of his new Model 30 Billboards to give to our listeners.  It seemed only appropriate that we celebrate our One year the same way we kicked this whole thing off.  Thank you Carlos for being such a wonderful supporter of the show and events we run.

To get entered to win, leave us an Itunes review or ‘Like’ the NGC40k podcast facebook page.  We will draw a winner in Episode 024.

Thank you everyone for being with us on this journey.  Here’s to another year, Cheers!
