I'm planning on going for Friday evening. I work until 5 so I'll leave then. I have room if anyone wants a ride.

Having just picked up Blood in the Badlands, I wonder if we could get a siege, or one of the other awesome scenarios, going.

Or maybe even stupidly start a campaign if there are enough like-minded fools willing to egnage in total folly.

I'd totally be down for a campaign! I think I'd probably have to take dwarfs instead since I don't have much variety with the elves. Should I be buying a copy of blood in the badlands? Is it good?

The campaign rules seems to be a great system.

Great balance between abstraction and consistency.

The book itself isn't great. Most of the book is taken up with a story how a group of players played the campaign one time, with a bunch of mini-battle reports, etc. If you like that sort of thing then it would be a great addition, but I found it a little silly for a $45 supplement.

The actual campaign rules themselves take up probably 6 pages, then 10 pages of scenarios, then 6 pages for siege rules. The rest of the 96 page book is either background or the campaign report.

So to summarize, the campaign rules look great. But they could have been published in White Dwarf.

I like the campaign really like the campaign rules, my only concern is about regular meetings to play the campaign turns.

I think what we'd do is get as much done out at Don's as possible, then run the turns by email, playing the games when possible.

Give players 2-3 weeks to play the games, then move on to the next turn.

It would take a while to play, but I think it would work.

Well I'm in, I think it sounds fun and it will give me an excuse to play a little more regularly. Should we make up a map or do some preliminary stuff before next weekend?

Sure thing. I have a(n unpainted) Mighty Empires set here. Probably even have the old card tiles from the original around somewhere.

I'll put together a map tomorrow, and we can start choosing locations.

Who plans to play, and using what armies?

The cool thing about the campaign is that it allows people with pretty much any sized army to play. The regular battles on the map are played out with a point value agreed upon by the players + or - some bonus points you may get during the campaign turn. It probably won't be a big deal in our area as every one has a fairly large army but at the end of every game season there is a large multiplayer battle for extra rewards. So if someone could only field, say 1500 points and plays their regular games at that, there might need to be some fiddling around to make the end season games work, but like I said I don't see lack of points being a problem for anyone.

Ooh, this is getting some legs!

It's awesome that it seems more people are staying and playing Friday night, which means some of you may need to bring sleeping bags, etc. Sounds like a couple guys from Regina will be there, so by my count there will be about 10 guys or so to get games in with! It also seems like there will be a big O&G showing that weekend. Frickin' greenskins.... Very Happy

Nathan, are you staying over Friday night or just for a few games? And on that note, who may be staying Friday night?

Eric - Daemons
Nathan - Dwarfs
Zach - Lizardmen
Frank - Ogres or Tomb Kings
Darren - Ogres
Andre - Dwarfs
Dom - Empire?
Barclay - Skaven
Tyler - Dwarfs

Good turnout, looks like we should play a game where the dwarfs take on all comers!

How many tables can you fit in your place Don? I can bring my table if you need it, It is just 4 strips of 2'x4' plywood painted green so it's easy to move but you have to put it on something to be able to use it

I just bought the fortified manor set that I can also bring if you still need more terrain. I assembled it into the separate components so I've got a watchtower, a chapel, an outhouse/guardhouse and a bunch of walls and fences. I don't have any of it painted yet but it's better than nothing. Let me know if you need me to bring anything.

There will be 4 tables, one 4x8 and 3 4x6. Terrain is always welcome as it's better to have too much than not enough. I love the attitude of the Dwarfs, I really admire the fact that my Elves don't have to lift their blades very high to chop their heads off. The little buggers just make it so easy!

Them's fighting words Don!! We may be stunties but we can hack off what little left you elfies have of testicles before you can break our armies. I think a three Dwarf armies against what you guys can get scenario is a great way to kick off the weekend. Start playing about 10 should give everyone a chance to arrive and hold council with their respective cohorts.
