WoK Campaign
« on: May 28, 2015, 02:37:56 PM »
Hi guys, I was wondering how many of you would be interested in running some sort of campaign for our new WoK minis. I was thinking something involving territories, a big map of the land, and a point system that rewards playing games and painting. There would be 3 different winners; best general (most game points), best dressed (most hobby points) and Conqueror (most points altogether).

Seizing territories would lend extra game points, and having a fully painted army would give you 1 free reroll per round. More details and extras can be hashed out later. Everyone would be fighting for their house, so mirror matches would still garner points, but be considered "training matches" and not gain territory.

I wouldn't mind running this for 2 months or so, or for as long as people are interested.

I'm in.  Just give me a ballpark of when to expect this to hit.  I'll save up all my painting enthusiasm for the campaign.

Allan I say we use a town for the Map since these are pretty small armies that we're fielding.

Bumping this thread.  Allan, would you be down to start this in September?  Post-Hell Dorado tourney.  I would play a $#&^&-Load of Wrath of Kings.

Yeah, I'd be down for this. Would people rather do a narrative based campaign or one more points based? Greg and I were talking about having different territories that grant different benefits that armies could fight over.

I vote for a narrative campaign.  I haven't participated in one of those in a long time.

I was thinking about this yesterday; It would be cool since the story of the world is about noble houses fighting over political power if we each had a noble lord we represented and fighting other players gained us political favor.  It's a little battle-points-y but could be fun with the right flavor match.

That would explain the inevitable blue on blue battles.

WHAT IF!!!!  Every week or so we had a political agenda that we tried to achieve by fighting those who opposed it?

This is going to turn into a game of Vampire: Blood n Smoke.  :)

Also, given the amount of comments of "I'd have to build and paint a bunch" a progressive narrative campaign would work as well. Having games slowly grow in size, and give campaign point rewards for getting models/units painted. I really liked the infinity one that worked like that.

Allan, I'd be happy to help you come up with a structure for this, or at the very least give you all the materials I have for WFB campaigns.

We could probably throw together a couple Mighty Empires tile sets to make a sizable area of terrain.
