The Battle for Chargis III Continues

Mark and I got together last night to record a special episode and return focus on the Bandrois Campaign.  This was a custom mission Mark wrote up.  I will start a new tab on the site where you can download these missions and play them for yourself.

Narrative campaigns are a great way to play the game.  It’s our favorite way to play and we want to continue to share our love of this game with everyone.  We are asked narrative gaming questions all the time.  Listening or reading to how we put these missions together and use those results to build our next mission, is a great way to learn how to do this yourselves.  I would love to hear about your narrative campaigns, named characters, etc.

This mission was all about the local PDF trying to paint the Raven Guard as heretics by sending a last ditch transmission into space and the Astartes storming out of the shadows to thwart it.

There were some epic showdowns and it was a bloodbath on both sides.  The Primaris Marines really shined in the game and The Angel of Death (my chaplain) had an incredible effect on the guardsmen when he buried himself in their lines.  The PDF priest shined even brighter in this game, helping the guard assault and slaughter scouts and marines alike.

We will talk all about this in Episode 41.

Episode 40: Wargames Con Warm-up

This is the first episode of the new hour long format. So get your brushes, glue, and hobby knife ready. This is your hour a night made easy.

Peter brings Dan and Glenn back from The Narrative Guys.

In this episode we talk about the history of Wargames Con, where its heading, and what The Narrative Guys have planned. When I say you have to experience this event, I mean just that. The Narrative Guys are firing on all cylinders when it comes to the Narrative play experience and once you participate you’ll be coming back year after year.

Episode 40

WarGames Con is held in Austin, TX, Aug17th-19th.

A shout to those companies involved in making items for the event.

I spent the day at Pegasus Games in Madison, playing in an event ran by the local MYCL gaming group. Kenny from the Combat Phase was the event host. I had a great time, met some new people and even won Best Painted. I was really happy to be able to participate in an event that wasn’t my own for a change.


The event was a more narrative driven tournament, which meant the missions were story driven with an over arching theme, in this case the great rift as it happened. Also, this required a two paragraph story on your force and they wanted it based on a Black Library book or codex. Mine was the Honoured Sons of course, expanding on the one paragraph about them in the codex that has them fighting a Tyranid Hive Fleet Jormungandr.

I included some pics of a few armies that were on display.

Thanks again Kenny for running this event.

Fate of Konor: Galaxy in Flames

Hey everyone,

Guess who’s back

Back again

G-dub’s back

Tell a friend.

In all seriousness.  Games Workshop has aimed their bat for the left bleachers and I want to help them hit this one out of the park.  Narrative is what we do, right?  They have laid out an entire campaign battling over six planets.  Each one will have a fun, unique mission.  I’m excited and I hope you are too.

You can support your side in two ways.

One way is by painting minis and I mean come on, with all the new minis out and folks like us that are on One Hour a Night on Facebook, this should be a no brainer.  Don’t hold back and don’t be deterred, break out those brushes and help your side.

The other way to help is play the mission that they posted for the week.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve been playing the heck out of some 40k since the new addition dropped and you don’t have to talk me into catching a game, especially a narrative based one.

It’s in the game pff. . .    It’s in our name bro!

Lastly, all you have to do is report your results to the local store.  Simple and Sweet.

So go show your support for narrative gaming.  Follow the link and support the Fate of Konor.  Like the great Shai Lebeouf once said,

Episode 026; Frozen Heresy

In our twenty sixth episode Mark and Peter close out a year of great hobby in the realm of 40k. We discuss 40k endtimes, what we would love to see if an 8th edition is coming, peeping in Jervis Johnsons dining window on Christmas and what we look forward to in the new year.

Segment 1: The 2016 Battle for Detros Mitus compilation.

Segment 2: A musical parody of Disney’s Frozen. Music provided by my daughter’s karaoke disc of the movie. #FrozenHeresy

We want to thank all our listeners for another great year.

Episode 026

Episode 022; WarGames Con

In our twenty second episode Mark and Peter discuss a wide variety of topics including what we’ve been up to in the hobby, games played and WarGames Con

Segment 1: The battle for Chargis III in the Vestega System continues. A person that may hold the secret to Bandrois’s whereabouts must be dispatched. Will the Bandrois forces be able to silence the tongue before the mouth has spoken?

Segment 2: We are starting a new segment called Exploring 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.

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. To enter leave us an Itunes review and/or like our facebook page NGC40k Podcast to get entered. We are drawing a winner in episode 024. Good Luck

Elysian Command Squad

Two beers to Dabuque and 3 days from Wargames Con

Only three days out.  I can’t wait to see my narrative buds in Texas.  The narrative event is jam packed.  There is still room in the solo events from what I’m told.  So you can still partake in some narrative goodness put on by the best in the business, The Narrative Guys.

This is going to be one heck of a weekend in Austin.  See you there.
