Re: Warhammer 40k: Campaign

BFG is relatively cheap to get into by GW standards.

Well I don't think we'll be using too many additional rules at the moment. BFG has great campaign rules for maintaining fleets and controlling systems.

Planetary Empire rules are nice and simple (I just want something that works, not too interested in depth).

The questions at the moment are:
a) how to pick scenarios for games
b) converting BFG Planetary Assaults into feet on the ground (IIRC BFG makes a suggestion on this)
c) whether to use Homebrew Codices

I think we will treat each planet as a mini-campaign in itself, so a turn will involve 1-2 BFG games, plus 1-2 40k/AI games per planet and take a few weeks to resolve.

But I will be blogging everything, so you will see it :)

ive always thought about running something like this in Gibraltar! however elements like battlefleet gothic are a forgotton art in our club, something i wish to re-learn!

if you end up with a running/rules pack by the time you finish I would be interested in a copy!

Planetstrike depends on having appropriate scenery and on whether we like it or not, having not tried it yet ;)

I'm batrepping "everything" this year (I hope!) so you should see updates regularly. ...
