Alright a couple of buddies and I want to start a campaign. I was going to buy the Mighty Empire kit but I have now seen that it comes unpainted and would be a pain to get detailed just for a made up campaign. So I was wondering were I can buy a Map of the Warhammer Realm? Or what you guys have used in that case? I figure I will put it on a bulletin board and use pins. Any other ideas where we can focus on playing and not MORE painting? Thanks
Armies: 40k: Imperial Guard, Orks Fantasy: Skaven
I'm guessing the best place to start looking would be Army Books - a lot of those have maps, not necessarily of the entire Warhammer World, but at least of a particular area of the Old World.
I'm not sure if a search of the internet would turn up anything... I know I have some maps of certain areas of the Warhammer world in electronic form, but I have no idea where I got them from!
If neither of those options work, maybe just asking at a local GW might turn up something? They might have a poster map or something just lying around that you could make use of.
Best of luck finding what you want!
If you truly want to have fun with a campaign, I'd recommend ditching the map. I have never seen a campaign that uses a map go for more than a couple of weeks due to either:
a, Player base interest in the campaign dwindles
b, Super confusing additional rules like upkeep and supply lines
c, (and this is the big one) Map campaigns tend to evolve more about pushing little army banners around on the map more than actually playing a game of warhammer.
I think a narrative campaign is always much more fun.
I agree with MobiusPrime.
That being said may I refer you to P13 of the High Elf Army book, where there is a full map of the Warhammer world.
I'm playing a narrative campiagn at the moment whic involves a Warriors of Chaos assault on Ulthuan to try and destroy the Chaos Vortex. The basic idea of the campaign is that there are a number of smaller battles, the winners of which get a free unit for the massive battle at the end. Its working pretty well at the moment as we keep it interesting by having the armies specific to the regions being attacked.
What armies are going to be in your campaign, and we'll see what we can think of
