20/5 6.10pm
Hot off the heels of K4, I would like to organise a campaign at Hobby Forge sometime next month. Alvin has already given the green light.

I am proposing the campaign dates to be from 22nd June to 27th July. There is also some discussion about ending the campaign with an apoc game after Hari Raya.

Yes, i am fully aware that July is also Bulan Puasa.  As such i would like to see who is interested in joining the campaign. The rules are about 70% done (pending minor playtesting and fluff) and i need roughly the same amount of players representing the Factions below:

- Imperial (SM, SW, BA, DA, BT, IG, GK, SoB)
- Chaos (CSM, Daemons, IG)
- Xenos (Tau, DE, Eldar, Orks, Necrons)

Please feel free to post up any questions or suggestions.

21/5 2.20pm
The idea of the campaign is to have a few core players for the campaign and those that cant commit can drop by the forge and play battles that affect the campaign provided certain conditions are met.

Facing a shortage of Chaos players. if i am unable to source for a few more, will make it Imperial vs Xenos.

Dann mentioned bout NIds which i totally agree on. Be interesting if we can find a few more nids players to fit nids as a separate faction in the campaign.

21/5 2.51pm
Syamael is in provided its properly planned and the timing is right. lol

btw, forgot to mention BLee will be helping me with the fluff and the rules as well.

23/5 10.45am
Jeff mentioned playing some of the campaign games in Legio. Will try to work something out. Stay tuned  Cool

23/5 6.00pm
Dom has kindly volunteered to be the 'official photographer' of the campaign. didnt know i needed 1 but now i have gotten 1.  cheers  so paint your stuff or risk pictures of your unpainted models floating in the net. yes, i know it applies to me as well... Very Happy

29/5 1.45pm
After discussion with my partner-in-crime BLee, we will incorporate Legio's awesome Hobby Nights as another avenue to get your campaign games in. We are working on the rules while you are reading this! Smile

...and Aiman, welcome to the campaign!

30/5 10.00am
Shaun n Paxter Norris is in as well!!!

31/5 11.30am
we got 3 new players. 1 each for Imperial, Chaos and Xenos. Welcome Zemo, Jeremy and Ben.

1st draft of rulespack is done. Its targeted to be play tested next week and finalised by the 15th.

The name of the campaign? BATTLE FOR VIN-KHALLA

31/5 3.07pm
The Forgemaster of Legio himself is joining the campaign!!!

22/6 11.00pm
After a long hiatus due to work and stuff, the rulespack is out!!!

30/6 4.00pm
Month 1 of campaign came and went. The turnout was better than i expected and Blee and me would like to thank all who came yesterday. Some even playing in the dark when electricity supply was interrupted. A total of 9 battles were fought. Some total trashing and some narrow victories were seen. Hope you guys had fun! Stay tuned for Month 2...

Models need not be fully painted but must be WYSIWYG for the campaign.

Models need to be fully painted for the apoc (if it does happen)...

Due to lack of chaos players, there are some suggestions of making it imperial vs xenos. I will be giving this due thought and will likely make a decision in a few days.

I had to look thru the list twice to be sure... but you left out Tyranids... Was that on purpose? 0.0

I could suggest splitting it into forces of order/destruction as per Fantasy which puts Tau and Eldar on the Imperials side and everyone else on the Chaos side.

And Nids on their own. Cuz they eat Imperials and Chaos for breakfast Very Happy

Nids as kingmakers was 1 of my foremost ideas when deciding to run the campaign. i did think of nids and the cool things it can do.
- each turn deepstriking on to the campaign map.
- random movement on the campaign map.
- all terrain tiles occupied by Nids loses all bonuses
- endless swarm bonus etc etc

but how am i going to find more that 1 Nids player in forge? max i know is only 2. dann and jo (and i m not sure what army jo will be using IF he is playing the campaign). i have to consider the demography of players in forge as well.

@dann: tell u what. find me 2 or 3 nids players (incl yourself) that will show up in forge during the duration of the campaign and i will write some awesome rules for nids.

@syamael: ko nak main ke?

for the next few days, i m trying to find out who's in and army they be bringing.

While Yip fine tunes the rules and stuff, I was wondering who will the representatives be...

Chaos
> Jo (Daemons)
> Han (Undecided)

Imperial
> BLee (SM)
> Dom (DA)
> Hakim (BA)

Xenos
> Alvin (DE)
> Dann (Tyranids)

I suppose this would help Yip manage the campaign better and to size up the turn up...

nope.

Points are to be mutually agreed upon by the players before each battle. However, the norm would be between 1750 to 2000 pts.

Furthermore, the list can vary from battle to battle. This is encourage players (especially eldar players) to try new things.

Cool, good to know.

Will all games have to be played at Hobby Forge, or can games be played at Legio Malaysia?
