Here are the details on how we are running our Iron Warriors vs Imperial Fists campaign “The Siege of Edinspire”
We planned it to be about 3-4 games using the series of missions from Stronghold Assault and 1 for Zone Mortalis (think WW1 underground mining mission….).
Mission 1: Bunker Assault
Mission 2: Breakthrough
Mission 3: ZM Mission (underground)
Mission 4: Last Stand
The Iron Warriors in this case are the attackers for each mission as they try and punch into the hive city and tear down the Imperial Fists walls that surround and protect it.
We are still using the normal Age of Darkness army lists with any ROW restrictions and bonus, but also adding the extras from Stronghold Assault (+1 HS slot for Iron Warriors, 3 or more Fortifications for Imperial Fists).
The first game starts at 4k points and we will increase by 1k for each game (except for the ZM game). No primarchs from game 1, most likely will appear in game 2 however.
We are also doing wounded and improvement tables for all our characters (sgt’s, HQ’s, etc.). This will also be used for special characters, but not Primarchs. I found these online and just kept them as is for times sake 🙂 (I cannot find the source I got them from right now, I will update this when I find it again)! Maybe I will make my own at a later point though for another campaign. So any character that survives the battle can roll on the improvement chart. Any character that dies in the game rolls on the injury chart. If they die outright or have to miss next game that squad is now without that character going forward.
