Thanks to Dosjetka for initiating this project.
I am pleased to present a Badab War-themed Tale of Gamers. This 6 month project will see a group of Badab War enthusiasts document their attempt to raise 1000pts worth (or more) of their chosen chapter.
This is purposefully a more relaxed Tale of Gamers, the objective to produce an exciting narrative-driven army that interacts with the other participants'.
The rules are:
- Start date: 23/11/15; End date 23/5/16
- 4 participants per side (Loyalist/Secessionist)
- Each participant must represent a chapter/human army present during the Badab War - no duplications.
- Each participant pledges to produce at least 1000pts of their force by the end date of the project. - This must be a legal army, consisting of at least 1 HQ and 1 Troops choice.
- Each participant must ideally post weekly updates regarding their progress - if this is not possible, please let us know ASAP!
- Weekly updates ideally should include some sort of WIP pictures and, if possible, some literature regarding the models and their involvement in the Vega III incident - details of this below. If participants haven't been able to do anything, this is absolutely fine, but please let us know so we know so we don't think you've jumped ship!
So, the participants we have so far:
Stoneheart - Salamanders
Magicman - Marines Errant
GrandMagnus - Sons of Medusa
Raeho - Exorcists with Carcaradon allies
Leviathus - Astral Claws/Tyrants Legion
Hushrong - Executioners/Inquisition
Thrillhouse - Lamenters
Naryn - Mantis Warriors
The Vega III Incident
In the build up to the decisive Sagan Offensive in late 908.M41, the Loyalists target a Secessionist supply base in the sparsely populated Vega system. Launching a successful attack, the Loyalists believe that they have the secessionists cornered until reinforcements arrive, throwing them on to the back foot. Before the loyalists are forced to capitulate, the mysterious Carcharadons arrive and turn the tide against the secessionists. In order to guarantee this dangerous, maverick chapter's commitment to the Loyalist cause, the loyalists are forced to commit a heinous crime that leads them into an uneasy truce with the Inquisition, who have been using the Vega III assault as cover for their own nefarious objectives...
Phase 1 - The Loyalist Assault
Phase 2 - The secessionist counter attack
Phase 3 - The Endgame
Aftermath and controversy
So participants, thank you for your pledges so far! Let's kick things off with an introductory post. First post should ideally be an introduction, what you will be doing in this project, what your first target is and any other interesting information you feel you would like to add. If you already have an army of your chosen chapter built up it would be good to show that, as it gives a starting point to which you can add.
Let's get this party started guys! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
