I've got an upcoming campaign scheduled for 25. 26. and 27th of March.
The rules were released a few days ago and I'm somewhat torn.
The rules are as follows:
campaign rules wrote:It's going to be run from the book "Crusade of Fire" and we will be using the "Planetary Empires" as star map and platform for issuing challenges to opponents.
It's going to be team based.
As this is a campaign it's not going to be fair all of the time, but it will be fun non the less.
We will play in rounds on time where people will be able to get 1-2 battles done. Between rounds there will be time to get your head cleared and to get foods n drinks.
Army lists must be built from home and will require validation from other players to make sure no mistakes were made during army creation.
The lists are as follows:
For use as recon and/or in support of an ally
- No special characters
- No Heavy Support
- No allies
- HQ 0-1
- Troop 1-6
- Elite 0-2
- fast 0-2
Used for game two in a given round
- No allies
- No FOC
- Titans allowed
- Formations allowed
- REMEMBER TROOPS FOR OBJECTIVES
You can only have ONE ally for your army
They must be picked within reason
You can make as many different lists for each point group as you'd like to.
No fortifications for any of the lists.
May the galaxy burn!
We will be playing in teams and we will earn points in battle which can either be dedicated to the team effort or used on the personal score.
The team with the highest team score (derived from the points dedicated from the members) will be the victor and the player on that team with the highest personal score (the biggest scumbag ) will be the winning player.
Now as you can see these rules are a bit restrictive.
My problems here are:
- No Heavy Support for 500pts list
- No fortifications
- I have no other w40k army so allies will be out of the question.
This means I'll have a hard time against flyers since I can't have a single model with skyfire
Also I have absolutely NO experience playing anything else than Tau, so even if I loan some models for an ally contingent I'd be uncomfortable playing.
My army supplies are also limited which is why I frown upon the no Heavy restriction.
You see, I have no Crisis Suits. I usually put my eggs in the Heavy basket and spice up with Stealth Suits and mounted Fire Warriors
I've got no Vespids either, but That will probably not hamper me anyway.
My only Forgeworld units are two Tetra Scout Speeders (and I love em!)
I do however have an Aun'va and I'm itching to bring him on the field, haven't played with him once
My questions to the ATT are then:
What do you think of this campaign structure?
I my self am not sure what to feel here. I generally don't like restrictions or alterations in general to the core rules and FOC.
But I am somewhat excited about a campaign in general.
What would you do with the 500pts list?
I think I just might be going with a troll list of 500pts mounted Fire Warriors, nothing else, just for the heck of it.
I usually win my low points games play playing "protect the Hammerhead" but with no Heavy, that'll be tough.
Also, would you dedicate your points to the team or your selves?
I'm playing with the idea of dedicating ALL my points to the team and then yelling "FOR THE GREATER GOOD!" when they announce the points.
(the dedication of points are done in secret, so no one knows how many points anyone but them selves have. They don't even know how many points their own team has.)
If it has any interest, this is the kind of list I like to play.
