I prepare the next meeting of the French
OldSchool Lovers at the Oldhammer Day in May 2019. So, my current Space Hulk
project is planned to be presented during this event but I planned to run a
WHFB campaign too. I will manage this campaign as GM and I share today some
stuff I produce for It.
I named this campaign “L’Empire en
flammes” and I hope that remind some good things for the RP Gamers who read
this words. I created it with all the things I cumulated during the several
campaigns I managed in clubs. I talking about the rules and models of course but
I talking about management experience I acquire too! This campaign involve 2
groups of 3 players during 2 days. I used the Mighty Empires core rules (2nd
ed) with additions and some transformations. And we play our games with WHFB 3rd
This campaign take place in the
Empire territory during an invasion leaded by an Alliance of Chaotic Lords,
they are opposed to the union of the last Defenders of the Empire. This
incursion was stopped by the cold winter and the snow of the mountain passes. Only
some territories separate the belligerents.Now, the assumption of the spring coming and every Warlords prepare to
lead their army for the next season of battle!
I was very inspired by the map of
the Empire. I applied an hexagons filter on it to obtain this 3D map. I
sculpted some markers for the Equinox spells and I copied some Mighty Empires
models with Bluestuff molds. I’m always pleased to discover how the players
love to play with these markers, particulary when they produce money to
increase their troops for the next battle J I swapped the original Mighty Empire
Dragon by a Man O War Hight Elves Dragon. I found it on ebay without wings to buy
it cheaper. But It obliged me to sculpt it new wings.
The initial situation
A last word (advise) for peoples who
want to run a campaign. In my opinion, there is nothing sadder than a campaign
without end. The most important thing for a good campaign is to finish it with
a realistic deadline. No matter how it finish, the campaign must finish! And this
is the job of the GM!
See you later for the battle report of the campaign!
