Episode 021

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!

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

Episode 020

Sorry for the wait listeners.  Mark and I will be back on our bimonthly release schedule moving forward.  See you in two weeks.

 

Wrapping things up

Episode 20 is edited and waiting for the bolter segment.  I plan to have the next installment of the Battle for Detros Mitus recorded tomorrow and edited over the weekend.  I intend to drop this episode late this weekend or very early next week.

It’s a solid episode and was a pleasure editing.  I can’t wait to pass it along to our listeners.  We will also be announcing another giveaway so pay attention for that.

A friendly reminder.  If you can get to Wargames Con in Austin, TX, the weekend of August 26th, come join us for some great narrative gaming and what is shaping up to be an awesome event.  Sergeant Valus will be there, stop by and say hi.

Episode 011

In our eleventh episode Mark and Peter are joined by their friend Norm to discuss hobby, the 2015 Apoc Luck Finale in all it’s glory.  Again we would like to thank Kromlech, Mechanical Warhorse, and Secret Weapon Minatures for sponsering the free event.  In this episode we also include a bonus topic of the how’s, when’s and why’s of Naming a character model. This also includes a special challenge for our listeners.

Bolter Segment: Sergeant Valus inspires the Imperial Guard and defends the position with an air strike.

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.

Less Than Two Weeks !!!

Less than two weeks to go until the final showdown on Agrellan Prime.  You’ve heard me talking about buildings, buildings, buildings for it seems like forever.  I have one last building to complete, the Aquilla Cathedral.  The 2015 Damocles Warzone Apoc Series has been awesome and like last year, nothing tops the Finale.

I want to give a thank you to our event sponsors Kromlech, Mechanical Warhorse and Secret Weapon Miniatures.  I want to give an extra shout out to Kromlech.  They went above and beyond for this event.  When their first event package was lost in transit from Poland, they stepped forward and sent me another prize pack.  That was totally unexpected and I just wanted to say their products, service, and support for the gaming community are top notch.  Go check out all three sponsors on the web.  They have some amazing products.

And I would also like to thank John from Pickle Jar bbq & pie for catering this event.
