Hello everyone! Long time no posts!
I'm posting because I've decided that I was really not happy with the overall quality of the narrative portions I have written so far, and so I have been going back to the drawing board, so to speak, starting with the original volume in the series. I am also trying to make sure I have enough content in each of these volumes to guide actual missions and board design. So, I am looking for as much help as I can get with the narrative and backgrounds!
For those who don't remember, the first volume is called the Death of Proxion, and concerns the struggles of the Astra Militarum against the forces of Hive Fleet Laelaps as well as a Genestealer Cult uprising. RIght now I am re-writing the part of the campaign that takes place on the moon Jana, analogous to modern Titan in environment. I have re-written a good amount of it, making the narrative more character-driven. However, right now I am at a bit of a creative block and could use suggestions on multiple things.
First thing is the background for the regiment. I am trying to make a Regiment that is effectively the Regiment of the entire sector - that way I can justify using the same paint scheme (and thus re-using models) in future campaigns. However, I definitely need help making sure their background seems reasonable, and while unique does not feel like it's trying too hard. I also definitely need ideas for a paint scheme, as I have no ideas and could use some inspiration! Since I want to include art in these volumes, I need to know what to do for that!
Second thing is the layout of particular facilities such as the primary facility at which the dam battle takes place. This sort of information helps me write because I know where characters are, where they need to go, and what they will be passing through on their way there. So any help with that part of things would be great! I am planning on hopefully making makeshift "maps" of each of these spots, as they do in stuff like Imperial Armour.
Here is a link to what I have so far, feel free to give any other feedback as well! Note that the narrative from the break in page 40 onward is going to be completely re-written, so just ignore from there until the end of the narrative portion. Also, the army lists and whatnot for the latter part of this campaign (the ones involving the Genestealer Cults) are from 7th edition and will be completely re-done once I get the first part of the campaign finished.
