Campaigns: The Galactic South Campaign, Phase I - Segmentum Tempestus
You can find both of the leagues ruling documents here. The Campaign and Mission Packets. Feel free to browse and Download them. Disdainful did an excellent job coming up with this Campaign, and I am really excited to play in it.
The Galactic South Campaign
The Galactic South Campaign Missions
This past Tuesday was the start of the league. The Escalation style of this league is something we haven't done in a while and I was really excited when Dis told me that was the sort of campaign he had drawn up. The last few leagues he ran have been excellent and I knew the change up in points levels was going to do great things for our group. The first weeks mission was all about speed and capturing objectives. I was lucky I chose to play Nurgle Guard and took a Vendetta and Valkyrie with Veteran Squads which allowed me to deploy rapidly turn 1 and capture objectives. I had two wins for the night, one against PythNutD and another against a Space Wolves player. All around it was a good night and the different point level coupled with the unique missions really has our group excited and thinking outside the box.
As with most campaigns/leagues at our FLGS there is both a Competitive and Story Driven aspect. We are fortunate to have a cornucopia of players in terms of interest, play style, ability, age, and experience. Having campaigns/leagues that cater to everyone is difficult but over the last few years Dis and I have come up with a pretty good balance.
What do you think of the campaign? Do you have campaign like this in your area or have you played in them before? Do you like pure competitive campaigns, story driven, or hybrids?
