During our routine patrol of the Naraka sector shipping lanes, we have come across a strange distortion in realspace. Monitoring of this anomaly has revealed random appearances of various vessels, both Imperial, traitor and xenos. The smaller xenos ships flee our guns as soon as they detected our presence and questioning of Imperial vessels' captains seems to indicate that ships travelling the warp are being randomly forced from the warp through this anomaly. The Navigators of these vessels all seem to suffer some sort of malaise immediately after the forced return to realspace which renders them mute and unresponsive to stimuli.
Skirmishes against these sudden invaders have been increasing, with several Imperial Navy vessels lost to enemy action. We have been able to impose some level of containment but with the unexpected appearance of vessels, without any warning, we struggle to track every vessel that has come through.
In the last week we have seen an increase in activity through the anomaly, with several xenos fleets suddenly erupting into realspace. Some of the xenos fleets are already being tracked on a course to nearby Imperial systems and there have also been sightings of Traitor vessels bearing the markings of the thrice-cursed Iron Warriors.
These fleets are beyond the capabilities of our patrol ships to stop so we request assistance from all Imperial commands in the Segmentum to deal with these incursions into Imperial territory. Let us strike quickly before our enemies gain a foothold in the sector
Welcome, fellow Lords of War, to the summer EPIC:Armageddon campaign at the Tabletop Gamers Association.
The campaign will be played over the 4 Sundays of November 2013.
The points for the campaign will be as follows:
Win: 10 points
Draw: 2 points
Loss: -5 points
First player to reach the cumulative total of 120 points will be declared the winner of the campaign and his faction will claim control of the Naraka Sector! If no-one reaches 120 points by the end of the 4th Sunday of the campaign then the player with the highest points total will declared the winner!
Players will select an army from the current 2013 EPIC:Armageddon Tournament Pack and 2012 Army List Compendium or a list pre-approved by the Campaign Organiser. Please note army lists in the Tournament Players pack supersede the same list in the Compendium. Players will be required to construct their forces using the same army list for the entire length of the campaign. We shall be using the current EPIC:Armageddon rules as outlined in the Tournament Pack.
Each week of the campaign players will cross swords in games between 2,000 to 5,000 pts (to be agreed to by the players prior to the game).
During the campaign, players will be given a randomly assigned victory goal for each game that will count for double points, i.e. the randomly selected victory goal will count for 2 points instead of 1 for that game. We shall be using the standard tournament scenario.
Please note I will be using the campaign to playtest the Squat War Engine List â€“ It can be found in the following LINK
So, who shall step forth to wrestle the Naraka Sector from Imperial control and which Imperial Commanders will answer the calls for assistance and protect the realm of Mankind from traitors & xenos scum. If you wish to join in the fun please add you name in this thread and nominate the army you will be using.
