some of my friends and i thought it would be fun to have a map based campaign with various rules for recruiting new troops,gaining experiance,army specific bonuses and so on . i have decided to base it off of the generals compendium for fantasy but there are some rule conversions that im haveing trouble makeing especially for the army specific bonuses any help would be appreciated in makeing those because seeing as i am participating i probably wont remain objective.

People have already made several 40k campaign systems similar to what you are talking about.

I highly recommend "There is only war" by http://www.evildice40k.com/index.php

Tricky to do well but very rewarding, that's my experience with map based campaigns. My biggest tip would be to limit the number of games anyone can play in a week/night, or actively schedule games (although I don't see that working with a map system), if a couple of people rack up early wins and get a head start then the whole thing becomes too lopsided (assuming you do play with area bonuses/veteran skills). The first time an opponent puts down a landraider with +1S weapons AND the tank hunter skill you'll get a taste of what I mean...

Why does the PDF have a PW?

Legal reasons apparently, just get one of the older versions. They are complete and really awesome.

While we're on the subject, I own a new planetary empires box with a couple of hive city tiles. I have yet to play with it and I was wondering if anyone had any experience using it. I am curious how well it works.

This is a simple map based campaign.

The other campaign that people mention is very extensive and if its you first campaign it might be a bit too big, but do not let that stop you from doing it, its has lots of kick ass action!
