Gathering Intel for a 40k Campaign

Post  BDA on 2014-06-06, 13:16

Right chaps as the title indicates I am gathering some Intel for a 40K campaign I am planning to run after Tony’s league, so end of the year begging of 2015.

The idea behind this campaign is to give reason for our games rather than just two sides meeting randomly and to have a the outcome of the games reflected in the campaign world with territory won and lost.

I am keeping the system simple as I have found it is more fun when you do, not to mention getting you lot to do anything more complex would be like trying to herd cats into a burning barn.

So the system in its simplest form will be run on the forum and will consist of you chaps giving your game results in over the campaign turn that will consist of around 1 month each. at the end of the turn I will tally up what factions have won the most games against who and then change the campaign map accordingly with a little artistic license where needed.
The reason for the campaign turn taking a month is to allow you to get at least one game in and allow you to play other systems and games of 40k unrelated to this not to mention allowing for life getting in the way of the hobby lol.

Game wise you can play any size game you wish with any of the 7th ed missions but there are a few restrictions as follow.

A role-play factor will be included in that you will all need to generate a HQ character who will be your avatar and warlord on the table. The character will have to keep his wargear, warlord traits and psychic powers thought out the campaign. they will not be able to take any unique gear but could be rewarded with some for free if they do well.
If your avatar dies then you can create a new one for the existing faction you belong to or change if you wish.

There will be no unique characters in the campaign. It is a small scuffle in the 40K universe and I really want your avatars to become the heroes and villains of this campaign forging their own story as it plays out. And rewards will be granted to warlords who do well
I will keep a data base of who has got the most victories as well as against who and post them up each game turn for bragging rights.

With a little luck if all works out we could have an apocalypse day one Sunday once things have progressed enough.

What I really need from you at the moment is if you are interested in taking part and for what faction you would fight for.
If you have the option to play another faction than imperium it would be very handy as we have tones of them. I will either be using Tau or Eldar depending on numbers.

The factions are
Imperium:
Chaos:
Dark Eldar:
Eldar:
Necrons:
Orks:
Tau:
Tyranids:

And here is a little pic of the campaign map as a work in progress.


so far we have
1 Ork player (Frank)
1 nid player (Tony)
5 imperial army’s [sisters or grey knights] [dark angles x2] [space marines] [guard]
2 chaos
1 Tau or eldar player (me)
and (Kyle) either being Eldar or Orks depending on how things work out.

So long as your territory is large enough you could take a brake as even without any players a factions territory will reduce over time not just collapse.

ok so far as I can tell we have
1 Ork player (Frank)
1 nid player (Tony)
1 imperial army [sisters or grey knights] (Stephen)
1 chaos [empoerors children] (James inwood)
And 1 Tau or eldar player (me)

A promising start with most of the bases covered and hope to get a few more involved as well

Groovy Very Happy 

You can use allies and stuff but I just feel it better if we all have a primary dex.
If your avatar dies then you can chose another faction/dex if you want but his way it is easier for me to keep track  Very Happy

I'm going to assume it'd be best to have a painted army for this?

In that case, I can either do Orks, Eldar or Dark Angels. I'm going to assume that there'll be more than enough players for the imperium, so either Eldar or Orks for me.

Groovy that is good news

I would like to have a couple of players for each faction if possible to get more game results in each month so orks or eldar would be cool.

I mean, I am not one for saying I have a grey knight squad armed with halberd sand claiming they are all hammers. Regardless of points being paid for, however, things like grenades, extra armour on tanks, etc, I'm ok with that.
It's a touchy issue and I know there are others on my side with this.

Good point there.

As far as I am concerned it is ok to proxy one special weapon as another or a heavy weapon for infantry.

For monstrous creatures I don’t mind you proxying its weapons but not for another type of monstrous creature.

As for vehicles it is more important to have something of the same size. Don’t mind you using a razorback as a predator without side weapon but you can’t use is as a land raider or falcon as they are very much a difrent size and shape. You can happily proxy a vehicles weapons load out so a land raider could be a land raider crusader.

I don’t want to punish people or force them to spend money they don’t have cos let’s face it this is a expensive hobby and we don’t all have the time, money or skill to magnetize weapons or have spare mins with every weapon option

In all cases you must specify to your opponent what you have that is not equipped as seen.

If it does become a big issue with lots of proxying going on then I might put a limit on it but we will cross that bridge if we have to.
I have played games where people have proxies just about everything and that spoils it a bit so let’s keep it sensible  Very Happy

A touchy issue.

Post  Grey Master on 2014-06-10, 18:51

I've made my case a few times on Proxy, and I just wanted to write a more elegant argument against it, to a point.

I am against using models who are holding Eg, a Plasma Cannon as a Lascannon. This to me is a pain.
I do however, understand that people can't always afford to buy three different squads with different weapons in each, it's not 100% practical.
I do think it should be at BOTH players discretion.

I am, as hypocritical as it seems, ok with using a model likea tank without things, Eg my Storm raven has Hurricane bolters, if I didn't pay the points I can't use them. This can be even fit into the imersion as the gunship is faulty etc.

We can argue the toss each way forever and a day, when it comes to the campaign, I don't mind if people proxy in others games, just not in my bolter sights... Razz

See you all on the battle field under my Imperial Knights boots soon!

I see what you are saying and I myself seldom proxy anything but the odd weapon on a tank but I can’t and don’t expect others to do this and don’t want to put people off by penalising them when I can lead by example and hope to inspire others to paint and model there miniatures, hence why I started my monthly painting club.

An update of the campaign map with 2 more cities and names added.
Once I have a better idea of numbers for each faction I will assign territory so the faction with the most players will be fighting more factions while smaller factions will have less factions to fight.  Very Happy

Right chaps this is an idea I am playing with allowing in the campaign.

You can have treaties with another faction depending on your alliance rating.
Battle brothers don’t need a treaty with as they are considered one factions in some ways.
you can have a treaty with a faction that falls into the allies of convenience and desperate allies category’s but not the come the apocalypse as there is just no trust.

A treaty is in short an agreement between those two factions to do or not do something or other.
So for example Tau and Eldar can have an treaty of non-aggression where they won’t fight one another or have a limit on, or outright ban on str D weapons.
Alternative you could have a more in-depth treaty saying you will team up against another faction allowing both your forces free movement though your territory to attack a common enemy. or i wont do this if you dont do that

In all cases they will have to be placed up on the front page for the forum for easy viewing.

If one faction was to brake a treaty then all treaties that factions has with all players would be null and void.

This could add a little more fun to the game and the making and braking of treaties is often fun.

Each faction will also have its own mission criteria that is secrete to one extent or another.

Some will be simple and others will not be as they appear. Each faction will be told there overall goal at the begging and if I can work something out a possible bonus for reaching those goals.
