This time around though I promised myself it would be different. Instead of running the group in conjunction with a local game store supporting it, I would run it more privately, with just a few like minded friends.
So, I spoke with a couple buddies, and while we are all eager to play a full fledged 40k campaign, it's that time of year. By that I mean 40k while played, takes a back seat for a few months while I usually get my Mordheim on (those of you may remember my past years posts with my Rieklanders and Chaos Warbands). I have gotten in a couple of games, but have been recently side tracked with terrain building and holiday season prep work. As a Husband and Father of three, there is only so much hobby time in a week.
I like, err.. love the skirmish games that GW has put out over the years, and I haven't played Necromunda in some time. So, with a new campaign book in hand I thought we would do the Crusade of Fire...
Now my thought wasn't to try and replicate the whole campaign using gangs and experience from Necromunda and try to wage such a large scale war.
I want to use the Crusade of Fire as a source book for all of our future 40k adventures, very akin to what you might have done with Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms in your old D&D days.
The Corvus Sub-sector is the perfect place for all sorts of campaigns. A quick read of the background and I found where our Necromunda campaign would be.
Corvus Majoris, perfect.
Given the current state of the Sub-sector, this also gives my son a chance to easily integrate his Chaos Cultists from Dark Vengeance into our games and play a Chaos Cultist gang.
So, that was all the easy part. I have been hard at work at Aetherstorm Games painting a variety of City Terrain, and building some more traditional looking terrain for our upcoming campaign. Look for an upcoming post featuring some cool looking tables in the near future.
Now, I have to come up with some special campaign rules, paint a gang myself, paint up some NPCs, and decide upon a format for the News letter that keeps the players informed from week to week. Easy right?
Shooting for a second week in January 2013 kick-off.
I'm really geared up, this should be a blast, stay tuned for some WIP posts real soon!
