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.

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,

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!

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.

Apoc Luck XV Skalk’s Assault

The Orks push back the Elysians and stop the Raven Guard from cutting off their reinforcements.  The Orks mass for a counter offensive to drive them off their continent.

A greater threat approaches.

The tendrils of the Leviathan have reached the sector.  The dangers posed by the Tyranids became clear as the skies to the east darkened and leather skinned wings delivered teeth and claw.  The biomass on the planet is great.  It will be a powerful beacon to the ever consuming dragon.  Emperor’s throne. . . we are all doomed.

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)
