The Battle of Helsreach: Recruiting

Post by Apothecary Meros on Fri May 12, 2017 3:25 pm

Though the starting date is yet to be determined - it'll be sometime after my exams, sometime in July - my first in a string of narrative 40k tabletop campaigns begins in 998.M41. Note that this will not necessarily be accurate to existing lore. This is our Helsreach.

It is the Third War for Armageddon, and Hive Helsreach is under threat from the Ork menace. A staunch host of defenders hold the line; Black Templars - the Emperor's Finest, The Order of the Argent Shroud - silent and brooding, and the Armageddon Steel Legion - veterans of decades worth of insurrection and invasion. Orks from the Crooked Moon clan lead the assault, but not without other elements from Ghazghkull's mighty war-machine.

Here, I will be presenting the basic mission details in what I hope will become the standard formula for any subsequent campaigns, for everyone.

Number of Missions: 3
Playable Armies: Space Marines (Black Templars), Sisters of Battle, Astra Militarum, Orks
Teams? Yes; Team 1 - Armies of the Imperium, Team 2 - Orks
Persistent Casualties? For Team 1, excludes Warlords
Minimum player count: 3
Game Types: Space Hulk, Eternal War Missions
Custom game rules? Yes
Custom Characters allowed? No

For all those wishing to join the campaign, decide your faction and nominate 1 HQ to be a persistent unit across all 3 games. This HQ may not be a named character. This model will serve as your Warlord. Furthermore, I will also allow your Warlord to choose their own Warlord trait, which will be persistent throughout all 3 missions, to be selected either from the available tables in the 7th edition rulebook, or from any Warlord trait tables in your army's Codex or available supplements.

Probably Game sizes are predicted to be:

1) Space Hulk - 10 models per player
2) Eternal War - 1,000 points per player
3) Eternal War - 2,500 points per player

Note, that if teams result in an uneven match in terms of points, the GM (me) will provide additional units to break even.

Ah, ok. Well, Tabletop Simulator requires a purchase and a download via a Steam account, but I assure you there's nothing dodgy about it.

As I said, sometime after my exams, likely July.

Although I appreciate it Senera, it's not required that you need to present the HQ in a post, unless there's something like a short backstory you wish to present.
