Warhammer 40k Campaign

http://n-a-g.org/forum/index.php?topic=3798.0

Our Futuristic rep Michael Curtis has organised a terrific Warhammer 40k campaign within the club.

“Warhammer 40k 1,000pts Campaign

All players Start with 1,000pt army
Your Warlords basic points are Free (eg captain 90pts costs 0pts)
Standard Force Organisation
The allied Chart as normal with one exception Tyranids are classed as allies of convenience for everyone
NO Forgeworld models or Formations
NO Lords of war
NO Special Characters
NO Special wargear for example Relics

We will be using the planetary empires tiles each player starts with 4 tiles, tile flags will be provided there will be strategic assets placed around the map which provide bonuses in and out of battle details will be provided when setting up the flags, all of your tiles must be in contact with at least 1 other any tiles not in a connected supply line to home base which is the first flag placed tile further details will be explained when setting flags.

All challenges must be battled within 5 Sundays or the defender forfeits

When you take a tile you can adjust your list by 500pts as your force leaves behind a small defence force when battling defence you start with 500pts of models in defence and if you have a tile nearby you can have a release force of 500pts start rolling for reserve from turn 3

When attacking another player you can battle each player once per campaign turn

When moving into empty Tiles you must roll on a random encounter chart to see if there are any non player forces you can take 3 empty tiles per turn and if 2 players choose to attack the same tile a battle for that tile with the 2 players
will ensue and if rolled a small 500pt force as a third party which will be run by a third party person

When Battling your units can earn Veterancy points for every 3 units your unit kills this can be over multiple battles they earn a veterancy point which when earned you spend that point on a veterancy upgrade for the unit on one of the veterancy charts
I will provide which will be done in person and wont be putting up here (if a unit is destroyed the veterancy points are also lost)

Anyone who wants to take part to message me that you are interested

Any reasonable feedback about the rules will be welcome I will create a discussion topic to talk about the Campaign”
