Welcome, fellow Lords of War, to the summer EPIC:Armageddon campaign at the Tabletop Gamers Association.
This campaign will be a team event, with players forming factions consisting of two players and their legions of men, xenos and machines. Factions will gain points over the length of the campaign and the faction with the most points at the conclusion of the campaign will be declared the winners. The campaign will be played over the 4 Sundays of November 2012.
Once players have decided who they will team up with, they will note their team in this thread or the thread on TGA Online Forum, along with a faction name if they wish (otherwise a faction name will be assigned to you). Another thread will be created to record the progress of teams for the duration of the campaign.
The points for the campaign will be as follows:
Win (victory goals) â€“ 5
Win (victory points) â€“ 4
Draw â€“ 2 (Victory Points difference of less than 100 points)
Loss â€“ 1
Fully painted army â€“ 1
Claim all five victory goals in a game â€“ 1
Players will select an army from the current EPIC:Armageddon Tournament Pack
and 2012 Army List Compendium
or a list pre-approved by the Campaign Organiser. 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.
The first week of the campaign will be limited to Minigeddon rules (see below). The remaining weeks will be games between 2,000 to 5,000 pts (to be agreed to by the players prior to the game). Players will be able to play team games, with both players of a faction challenging the players of another faction.
During the second to fourth weeks of 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.
A fun, fast and furious way to play and learn Epic Armageddon by fighting scaled down battles
