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

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.

Wargames Con Aug 26th-28th

Wargames Con is a tabletop gaming convention and tournament for multiple gaming systems including Warhammer 40k, Warmachine and Hordes, Flames of War, Infinity and X-Wing!  It takes place August 26th through the 28th in Austin, Texas.

For more information follow the link, Wargames Con.

The Narrative Guys, fresh off the heels of the LVO have put together another massive narrative campaign event.  I’ve been telling you about some of the cool stuff we have been cooking up.  Piece by piece it is coming together.  Fantastic story lines, kick ass terrain and narrative driven 40k.  I can’t wait to hang out with the Dan and Glenn again and roll some dice.

Attention: they are looking for one more admech player to join the narrative team event and the solo event has several openings.  So if you want to play on terrain like this,

Narrative Guys

hurry up and lock in your place at the table.  If we want to see more events like this, we need to give them our full support and sell them out every time they are offered.  Follow the links provided, team up with a friend, book your hotel, get your tickets and play your heart out.

See you in Austin.

Episode 020; Who is Bandrois?

In our twentieth episode Mark and Peter return after another long stint. We discuss what we’ve been up to in the hobby and games played.

Segment 1: The battle for Chargis III in the Vestega System continues. Just who is Lord Bandrois? We also continue the campaign creation by discussing what we plan to do for the second installment of the Bandrois campaign.

Segment 2: Interesting Places on the Web. We cover a few cool places that have been passed on to us by others. We also tip our hat to one of Pete’s favorite youtube channels as they bid their followers farewell.

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.

Wargames Con!!!

Wargames Con, August 26th-28th, Austin Texas!

The Narrative Guys are running a two day narrative event there.  I know this isn’t the first Narrative Con event they’ve run, but it’s my first time going to one and hot damn I’m excited!  From what I’ve seen on the internet, their events are to narrative gamers as Adepticon or LVO is to competative play.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Dan and Glenn at Adepticon and went over ideas to support a nationwide/global narrative game.  Those events are starting to unfold now and I can’t wait to see where we can take it.  Maybe it’s in the cards that NGC40k will be running a narrative event at a Con soon too.

The best way to show support for these types of events is to go to them.  Check out The Narrative Guys, get inspired, start a campaign and join us at Wargames Con.



Episode 019: So you want to be an Ultramarine

In our nineteenth episode Mark and Peter return after what seems like forever.  We discuss what we’ve been up to in the hobby and games played.  We also discuss The Narrative Guys Beta, the global campaign that Peter discussed in previous episodes; and how we participated in that.

Segment 1:  We review the Space Marines Codex, NGC style.  We delve codex deep into the codex fluff of the Ultramarines.

Segment 2:  We create a narrative campaign from scratch, on the fly.   We go through the who, why and what of the campaign process.  It was a lot of fun creating it and look forward to the first game.

Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the orks make their advance on the Sabre Ridge.  (a repeat of last episodes, sorry, family life got in the way of recording the newest segment)


Episode 019

Some Sweet Lookin’ Crons

Hey everyone,

A listener sent photos of his army to me after he saw us mention our Marines Errant vs. Thokt Dynasty Necrons match for The Narrative Guys Beta.  They looked sweet so I wanted to share them with you.  If you want to learn more and participate in the Global Narrative Beta, follow the link to The Narrative Guys facebook page.

Great work and Thanks for sharing John T.

The Narrative Guys Beta is Live

The narrative beta concept and rules.


I’ve been talking about it since Adepticon and it’s finally here.  The worldwide narrative that will decide the themes for the major events like LVO.  It’s in its beta stage, but this is truly exciting and I’m glad I was lucky enough to be a part of it.

You can participate too and I encourage it.  If you want some NGC run event at a Midwest con somewhere, this is where it begins.  You want to see these major narratives tied together across the country, this is where it begins.  You want to see more events like this period, participate and promote.

Follow the link, read up on how the system works and fight for your side!
