It's finally here. The oft spoken of, but never executed 40k campaign. It's got a little something for everyone. If you're intrigued (and I know you are) read on...

The Imperium has located a galaxy beyond Ophelia IV. One planet in this galaxy contains a precious new source of psychic-bio-energy. The imperium believes this form of energy can be harnessed and the source of endless and renewable fuel. The minions of the emperor are now on the march to the planet of JAC III. Needless to say, such a powerful commodity has attracted the attention of other galactic entities. Many seeking to harness this power for their own, some seeking to destroy this bizarre power, and some seeking only to wreak havoc on those who hope to possess it. Regardless of the reasons, one thing can be said with any degree of certainty, the JAC system is sure to be the sight of skirmishes, chance engagements and all out, apocalyptic battles. In the end, only one faction will be able to control this new element, the element of JAConium…

So begins the JAC, 40k fall/winter campaign. It will contain all elements of the game and hobby. We will be looking for folks to build armies, splash some paint on them, play some games and have some fun. Any activity done in the name of 40k will contribute to your faction’s claim to the precious JAConium, from founding a new chapter/craftworld/hive fleet/waaaagh/new sept etc (building new models or creating the fluff for your own force) to promoting the colors (painting), winning important campaigns (tournaments), battles in the space around the planet (bfg), chance encounters (regular games) and giant, well orchestrated campaigns (apocalypse games), the three factions will all be vying for control for the planet of JAC III.
There are three factions in the campaign of JAC III, some are relatively unified in their efforts while others are loosely associated and tolerate their so called allies at best. The factions are as follows:

Imperium of Man
All Space Marines
Imperial Guard
Daemon Hunters
Witch Hunters

Forces of disorder
daemons of chaos
chaos space marines
orks
tyranids

xenos
tau
eldar
dark eldar
necrons

The forces of disorder and the Imperium of man will always fight in opposition, while the xenos will either fight on their own or can ally with either of the other two factions.
Generals can further their cause in a number of ways. Each step taken will help to secure their faction’s foothold on JAC III. A list of ways to assist one’s faction are:


Recruiting-Demo the game for a new/new player-1pt

Mustering the troops-Assembling a NEW unit (must be assembled during the campaign)-1pt

Battle Dress-Painting a unit or independent character-1pt

Planet exploration-Play a regular game (or planet strike) of 40k -1pt

Gaining a foothold-Winning a regular game of 40k-1pt

Securing supply lines-Playing a game of Battlefleet Gothic-1pt

Bringing in the reinforcements-Winning a game of BFG-1pt

Contributing to the annals of the Imperial Library-Writing and sharing the original back story for one’s army-1pt

Securing the garrison-Building terrain or objectives for the shop 1pt

To war lads!-Participating in an apocalypse game at the shop-2pts

Crush, kill, destroy-On the winning side of an apocalypse game at the shop-1pt

For the glory of the Emperor (or insert the name of your favorite galactic dictator here)-Placing in a JAC hosted tournament -5/3/1
(1st/2nd/3rd)

*bonus points may be added for other creative ideas not covered here.

In addition, the commander from each faction who has accumulated the most points during the period in between mega battles will be the supreme commander for that battle. They will get final say on set up times, objective placement, strategic assets, army set up etc. Of course, you may defer to your teammates, depending on your specific philosophies on leadership and warfare.

The campaign will run until December 31st, or thereabouts.

The battle for JAC III has been joined. Which side will you be on?

there is no get together planned for sunday. just letting everyone know, if you do anything at the shop 40k related, report it to me and i'll start to tally it all up. there is nothing planned at all. if you decide to participate, you just play, build, paint etc and let me know.

contributing to your side's cause will help out in themed apoco battles and games.

feel free to play d&d, but if you aren't involved in that and want to play some 40k, go ahead and let me know the results, it's just that easy.

how long does your own fluff have to be? cause I'm running out of ideas and I'm nearing the end of page two on Microsoft word.

Single space. In paragraphs

Ryan

P.S. if i write more do i get a second point for it?

i will tell you what i tell my students. write until you are done. we can get a separate thread here for the fluff of armies, i may even attempt my hand at creating some eldar fluff (i think i'll be playing them as the xenos side will be woefully underrepresented).

well you could do that or just copy and paste it. if you don't want to share it, you can send it to me, or maybe post a synopsis?

i've edited a bit to add in incentive to accumulate points. the person who accumulates the most points between mega battles will be the supreme commander for that battle. read above for more details.

oh, and if you've voted, why don't you go ahead and sound off with who you are and what hood you'll be repping.

hi, my name is dru and i'm a xenos scum.

This is epic beyond comparison. I am in.

How exactly do we accumulate points? Does a campaign-official or sorts need to be present during "Chance Encounters" or an new squad being painted?

we will trust that you won't cheat or fudge things. there is no true prize other than glory and bragging rights, there should be no need to. all you have to do is do your campaign activity, send me a pm or post it on the forum. if you have a particularly exciting game or event, be sure to write up a battle report to share with us all, it will allow us to weave a narrative.

I'm down for this. It sounds like it will be a lot a fun. I will be using the Blood Angels.

When you guys play games, make sure to let us all know. It would be excellent if you could write a battle report for your games but since I know that can't happen for every game, maybe try to post these things.

1. Who you are and what army you used.
2. Who your opponent was and what army he used.
3. How many points was the game?
4. Who won.

Mark
