The Campaign

Here are the details of our ongoing campaign!

Early in the year 40,013 (38,000 years from the time you are reading this), forces from Loyalist Adeptus Astares chapters, a renegade Space Marine chapter, residents of a Necron Tomb World and the members of a Chaos Space Marine unit clambered out of warp space to wrestle for control of Shadowspawn, a forgotten rock of a planet near the Eye of Terror. Striving for control of the main continent are:

  • Chaos Space Marines
  • Dark Angels
  • Necrons
  • Relictors (Renegade Space Marines)
  • Space Wolves

Using the Planetary Empires rules, each force chose a ‘home’ space port and the land surrounding it, occupying the entirety of the continent in what would be a titanic battle for control of the planet and its resources.

The resources were separated thusly:
Relictors
1 Manufactorum
1 Shield Generator
1 Command Bastion

Dark Angels
1 Power Station
1 Command Bastion

Chaos Space Marines
1 Manufactorum
1 Command Bastion
1 Power Station

Space Wolves
2 Manufactorums
1 Command Bastion
1 Shield Generator

Necrons
1 Manufactorum

With every passing moon transitory period creating massive earthquakes and periods of intense electrical storm activity, battles between the forces could only take place during short periods of calm before the huge moon swung round once more, causing the very surface of Shadowspawn to crack open, with the potential to swallow whole armies. The fighting for control of the planet would take place in episodes, with each battle happening in turn as expeditionary forces fought for control of factories, cities and space ports.

At the start of the struggle for Shadowspawn, the forces were arrayed on its main continent thusly:
