Model Company of the Month with Mechanical Warhorse

We conclude our May celebration of model terrain with some more great kits by Mechanical Warhorse.

You’ve seen my posts on the pipeworks kits for our Mechanicum/Industrial district, they are coming along nicely.  I wanted to show you some other great stuff and some items that are ahead of their time.  Mechanical Warhorse has some great scatter terrain and table props that really help capture the battle on your table top.  I’m talking about their com & watch towers, tanks traps and acrylic explosions, smoke and so much more.

Did I tell you how much I like their billboards?  I have three of these kits and they are great for nearly any setting, badlands, city, etc.  I’ve put them on the table at every Apoc Luck event I’ve run.  They are just too damn cool not to take pictures of your models without these somewhere in the photo.

 

I’m drawing the winners today.  Want to see if you’ve won?  Check out the NGC40k Facebook page.

Pipeworks by Mechanical Warhorse

We continue our May celebration of model terrain with Pipeworks kits by Mechanical Warhorse.

Our own group is building a Mechanicum/Industrial district and I immediately thought of Mechanical Warhorse for my pipework kits.  These kits are easy to assemble, look great on the table top and are very reasonably priced.  The Narrative Guys have a table full of this terrain and it looks fantastic.  Industrial, Imperial wastelands, ship interiors, the uses go on and on.

May Model Terrain of the Month Mechanical Warhorse

Wow that’s a mouthful and don’t try to say it three times fast or you’ll tie your tongue in knots.  If you did that, how would you spread the good word.

This month we celebrate model terrain from our good friend Carlos over at Mechanical Warhorse.

Armageddon is everywhere I look these days.  Danger lurks around every corner and from distant platforms.  Densely packed terrain with a strong industrial vibe really helps set the scene.  A great way to create that is with containers, catwalks and gantries.  Carlos is putting together some exciting combo sets to get you started.

In the spirit of ‘Model Terrain Company of the Month’, Mechanical Warhorse is giving a kit away to a lucky listener.

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.
