Checked out the first few and I like the style you did them in.

It's so handy when you can put the pictures right with the report...

*gives Warseers mods a sideways glance...*

I agree with the stylistic kudos, but are you pursuing in random directions or just super favourable ones?? In the first game it looks like those seekers (pics 11 & 13) hit the organ gun and then hit the flank of the crossbow on the overrun/pursue... or is that two separate turns??

brynolf
19-05-2010, 10:22
Hm, no that must be different turns. The seekers must have charged the crossbowmen in the Daemon turn...

Have read the first report, still got loads to go :D Kudos to you for doing a campaign, how many turns is it lasting?

We play 10 campaign turns. Largest empire by then gets ice cream.

Read the Intro and the 1st batrep so far....
Kudos :D

Thanks guys! I updated the original post with the latest report of Turn 8.

I really enjoyed the read.

Updated again.

For our next campaign (yes, it is already in the planning), we will probably make the map a bit better in the reports, showing fortresses, cities and arrows where tiles have been conquered et cetera.

This far we haven't shown the army lists in the batreps. Do you guys think that is important? I for one mostly don't read army lists in battle reports, but I am also a lousy bum, so...

selone

I prefer reading army lists but I can see for a campaign why you wouldn't post them (if the lists are similar)

brynolf
31-05-2010, 17:51
We make new lists for every battle, so there probably is a point to adding the lists to the reports, then.

Added another report. Check the original post.

Poor dwarfs...

Had they castled a bit more they would have done a lot better.

brynolf
01-06-2010, 18:55
Maybe. We still haven't figured out how to play dwarfs successfully. They did fairly well in 6th, but now they mostly lose. We'll see how they fare in the next campaign.

Updated the original post again. This campaign is now over, but the next one is starting up very soon with more variety in races and battles. Should be fun.

Dang, I was rooting for the dwarfs. Still, thanks for the reports, it was a great read!

Campaign number 2 has begun, and a couple of reports are on the way. In the meantime, here are the house rules that we use in this new campaign:

Another battle has been played in our Mighty Empires campaign. We just switched to 8th edition, and really liked most of the changes.

The original post is updated, and I copy the link into this post as well:

Turn 3 - DE vs VC (http://mupptribe.blogspot.com/2010/08/me-campaign-2-turn-2-dark-elves-vs.html)

Is the "black couch" because of a spell checker or witticism :D Thanks for the continuing reports.

I have neither Spell checker nor Wits... :angel:

New report: Ambush scenario between Empire and DoC. The original post has also been updated.

I think I understand the basics of your campaign, each player in initiative order challenges someone, until everyone is playing someone? Then depending on how well you do, you earn campaign points of some kind that you can spend to take tiles, or upgrade to forts and mines and stuff. Is that correct? Also where did you get the source rules my friends and I are always looking for campaign systems that are not too complicated to try out.

Zaszz
09-08-2010, 15:58
Also Im sorry, but what program did you use to make your report images, I see it fairly often but have no clue what it is. I am very interested in reporting my groups campaigns and would love a tool like that rather then MSpaint lol :D

brynolf
10-08-2010, 18:48
Yeah, you got the basics of it. The campaign system is called Mighty empires, and is an official GW product. Needs some tweaking for 8th ed though.

The map creator software we use, I'm not sure what it is. "Battlemapper" or something like that, I believe. I'm not the one making those.

New report uploaded. It's a rather odd battle between Dwarfs and Orcs. Check out, bitte! The original post has also been updated.

I found it, it was called Battle Chronicler, its a free ware download very easy to use with only a few quirks. I will be running my own thread for our campaign starting tomorrow, were going to be using the border princes campaign in the generals compendium. Thanks a lot for the great thread so far BTW, it has been a big inspiration to get our campaigns up here.

brynolf
12-08-2010, 22:24
That's the one, yes. Looking forward to your reports.
