Macragge Campaign

Post by Ketran on Fri Jul 16, 2010 6:09 pm

So here it is a campaign for my Macragge gameboard lets jump right in, you will need:

Two players one with a close combat army like tyranids and the other with a shootier army like spess mareens.
Doesn't have to be nids and marines it could be orks and tau. But i'm not having armies like eldar and grey knights fighting against each other. Anything that falls into the xeno category, more animalistic than a race.

Deployment:

Marines start near the launch centre near the top right corner of the board. Nids come in from the docks.

Objectives: The marine players objective is to destroy the large tyranid egg that has latched itself into the ground before it hatches. The tyranid players objective is to stop the marines from launching a bionuclear rocket that will end the tyranids game.

If the egg is destroyed the game ends and the marines win. If the rocket is destroyed the game ends and the tyranids win. However either team can win by standard annihilation rules. The game is limited to five turns if no team has fulfilled their objective then the victor is decided via kill points.

How to complete your objective.

The marines have to destroy the egg it is a monstrous creature here are its stats.

S-6 T-8 WS-3 BS-0 I-3 W-6 A-4 Ld-10 Sv-3+

Leadership is irrelevant the egg is fearless and is also not susceptible to the no retreat rule.

As you can see the egg can fight in close combat with its surrounding tendrils to bat away enemy infantry.
It also has a 4+ invulnerable save and is immobile.

If the egg hatches (this happens in the same way you choose reserves except you start rolling from turn 3 and you have to start on a 6 then a 5 then a 4 then the game ends) A large monster hatches from its shell and sprays the marines with corrosive acid ie the marines lose.

Another rule the egg has is that at the start of every turn the player can roll a dice if they get a 5 or more the egg regenerates 1 wound to a maximum of 6.

Now if the rocket fails to launch the tyranids win

The space marine HQ holds the remote launcher in his inventory and if he is killed the launch is aborted and the tyranids automatically win. If you have multiple HQs then allocate the launcher to whichever one you wish. If your HQ isnt a named special character like calgar then they gain +1 WS +1 BS but -1 to their leadership this is to show their reckless desire to stop the tyranids destroying the launcher.

Like the tyranid egg hatching process the rocket launch is exactly the same a 6 then a 5 then a 4 then end.

The maximum amount of points I will allows is 1500 as well as the minimum I am sick of stupid 1000 point games they annoy me. Note: All terrain is difficult apart from the various platforms as the ground is very rocky. Which is no problem for nids as they can move extremely quickly through cover.

Think of it as an unusual planetstrike game. This campaign would be better written if my computer wasnt lagging like a bitch for some gay reason but yes here it is.

I'm out. If you're limiting armies, then I call bullshit. Also, I dislike the win conditions immensely.

I'm sorry but I don't think Eldar belong on this sort of map. Are you telling me with the current conditions Eldar belong? Because last time I checked Eldar did not have some monsterfuck eggs growing about. At most I could make them the defenders but it doesnt piece together right.

On a related note I think it could be boosted to a free for all with the addition of necrons. This means 3 players obviously and the necrons come on the second turn via deepstrike of course to harass the armies.

I don't see what the problem with the victory conditions is please explain.

I guess they do seem alittle bit to unpredictable. THe game can end very early with a lucky dice roel and their is no skill involved in it...

Yer, but it will be a hollow victory to have everything set up after a couple of turns of placing your men into position and having the enermy come to you for the fianl clash battle and then it ending abruptly.
