Hello, im kinda new to Warhammer (so far iv just built my first Chaos Marines Army and played maybe 15 games), and I was wondering of there are any other official scenarios other then the standard three in the rule book and where I could find them?
Or lacking any official ones if people could point me to some good ones / share some of there’s.
Could you understand the beauty of the beast?
just make them up dude,
things like "last stand" say one player has a small elite team pinned down and have to survive wave after wave for a number of turns before air lifted out. Kind of like black hawlk down.
Hey, I've got about a dozen different missions that are either built for 40K, or can be easily adapted for it. Just shoot me your email and I'll send them to you.
i know this post is alittle late but would also love to take a look at the missions you have
Well there's actually 9... three deployments and three objectives and on top of that you can use victory points instead of killpoints as a varient. Or you can say that you're going for victory points and each objective is worth 500 points as well. It's a game, played by friends so there's no real worry about having only 9 scenarios. Want to take only 1000 pts tau vs 2000 pts marines on the LONG table edge (holdout?) - well as long as you have 1000tau and he has 2000pts marines and you both dont mind playing shooting gallery for a few turns then why not?
Its about fun. If you have fun making dioramas, and jim has fun paintng and bob has fun eating the miniatures* then by all means go ahead**. You dont ==need== games workshop 'official' rules except in a tournament where all the variables must be consistent.
**no really dont eat your minis
Another great thing that has worked for me has been adapting actual historical engagements for the 40k realm. I've found a literal gold mine of scenarios from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf Wars. Just search around for different types of battles (like one I did based on the Battle of 73 Easting), see if you can scrounge up a rough map, pull out your 5th Edition rule book, a codex or two, and let your mind roll with it.
Another cool thing to do is to make missions uneven. In real war, generals don't sit down across the table from one another with meticulously groomed 1500pt armies. Sometimes the Orks just show up and have 2500pts, while the lone IG company can only muster 1250pts to hold a key objective.
Look at RTS games that you or your friends may play. Check out the maps, the mission briefs, and then adapt them to 40k and overcome any difficulties with an application of brainpower!
