Episode 049

Gamehole Con

It was an incredible time at Gamehole Con.  The 30k & 40k events had plenty of participation.  The narrative event was all we could hope for.  The battles went back and forth between Attacker and Defender all weekend.  In the end, the Attackers prevailed by close margins.

I want to thank Jarred of the Bolter Club for letting me help design the missions and run a day of the events.  He worked incredibly hard all year to make enough terrain for the event and it looked amazing.  We even had the army that was won at the Nova Open involved (whoever painted that, it was off the hook).

I look forward to next year.  This was only the beginning.  This event is going to grow into something spectacular I just know it.

Go over to our Facebook page and find the photo album of Sunday’s events.

Gamehole Con is Underway

You heard Jarred, of Bolterclub fame, and I talk about our plans at Gamehole Con in episode 47.  There is still time to sign up and go.  Madison, WI.  Come out and play.

Do you like 40k?  Of course you do or you wouldn’t be reading this.  Well Warhammer 40k has come back in a huge way at this convention.  You’ve heard us talk about the events we are running that include Kill Team and various point levels of regular 40k.  Then our friends Joe and Levi are back again this year after running a successful Kill Team event last year.

In to 30k?  Geoff has you covered.  He is running his first ever 30k event at Gamehole Con.  He is a fellow good brother of the Bolterclub and knows how to throw down a great narrative game.  Helped us with our play testing, a special thank you to him for that.

Please show your support for these events so we can continue to see them grow.

Catch me on Sunday, say “Hi”.  I’ll have a handful of t-shirts to give out.

Episode 043

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.

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.
