Just a question, because I haven't really seen anything about it.. Two years ago we had the Medusa V campaign, last year was the Nemesis Crown -- is there going to be a 40k campaign this summer? Or is all of that kind of getting lost in the shuffle of the 5th Edition rules?
Yeah, i heard some rumours about some kind of planetary assualt book with accompying models and campaign.
That would be great. i do hope the rumors are true.
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
>.> The campaigns was the main reason i ever got into Warhammer 40k in the first freaking place
You could always just have your local shop run a campaign, or get some friends together and do one. Every summer my friends and I play campaigns with eachother, and in the Fall the local shop runs campaigns as well.
Also- as cool as the summer campaigns are, they are almost all rigged. Because- as previously stated- the Campaigns are advertised as effecting the fluff, but the fluff can't really change. Eye of Terror was excellent, but that's because of how well thought out it was. It was clear that the Chaos armies couldn't win because- true to the fluff- the Imperial forces were fighting them at every turn and the forces of Chaos were just too undermanned to launch a big enough attack. And they weren't "Allied" with the other 'evil' races, rather- the evil races were just taking advantage of the situation.
For SoC, the problem was that the forces of Chaos and Evil all allied and actually managed to start winning (legally) at every turn. The campaign organizers suddenly realized that rather than the Chaos armies getting forced back to their own realm, they were actually going to legitamately capture all the other kingdoms and therefore end WHFB as we know it. So they simply took the helm and wrote their own outcome. So even when Chaos won the last battle, there's some miraculous effect that stole their victory and gave it to the 'inferior' players. That's why they got so mad. Same goes for Nemesis and Medusa.
If they want to keep running WWCs, they need to plan them much better, so that the game ends in a stalemate or simply effects the game in a non-fluff-changing way. A tyranid invasion would make a good campaign, because the Nids won't be utterly eradicated, and the other armies will keep infighting like they did in EoT. But GW doesn't want to put in that kind of effort anymore.
Well I like the idea of being part of an event that is bigger than a local run thing. Something Larger than myself. I understand the WHFB thing, Can't have chaos take over the empire. As for 40k The galaxy is soo huge that no army could ever truly take down the Imperium with the exception of nids, and MAYBE necrons.
I agree... Half of the reason I got into 40k were campaigns like the Dark Crusade and Medusa V -- a chance to feel like my army is doing its small part in the giant world of 40k. I mean, Warmachine seems to have campaigns that affect its fluff but don't break the game, so why couldn't WHFB? And 40k has a pretty much infinite number of small planets and systems that can be conquered and razed with very little consequence on the overall fluff.
Medusa and Nemesis were actually army driven. They had no impact on the larger fluff so the people who won actually won.
May the Emperor forgive you, for his servants cannot.
Seeing as though it's like... uhm... no longer summer, i guess we can rule out having a summer campaign?!
