Title: Knuckles on Necrodermis - Ork Campaign Command Central
Post by: OD from TV on September 8, 2010, 11:16:31 PM
Campaign Rules and Information thread (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=205138.0)

This is the Index thread for the Ork participants in the Knuckles on Necrodermis cross forum campaign pitting the Ork Forum against the Necron Forum in a battle of supremacy!

Campaign Fluff, the Sparknotes version...
An Ork Warlord and his Big Mek want to steal Necron tech, specifically the Necrodermis Generator which creates the living metal found in Necron Monoliths, starships, and bodies of the Ctan.  The Necrons are trying to reclaim this very same Necrodermis Generator which do to seismic activity, polar shifts, and continental drifts is currently missing.

Various K.o.N. ongoing activities

The Prize for most Notorious player in the campaign: a one of a kind Necron Obelisk Terrain piece (yeah its not very Orky but still its a free terrain piece!)

Current most Notorious Ork: Skeetergod
Mission 1 Shoutout : First of all everyone on both Ork and Necron side (but that should be a given) special kudos to Angel for getting Gutstikk to go along with getting credit for both regular and bonus missions, as well as Skeetergod for his early lead in the Notority aspect of the game.

Mission 2 Shoutout: Again everybody, but I gotta give mad props to Hekkastor for securing Sector 1, Stealing a point from the Necrons with a successful 'It's Them' game, his continuing work on his Skaterboss, inspiring a fellow Ork (as well as myself) to build Skateboarding Orks, and a campaign fiction ending with the words "I'MMANA BITE YER SHINY METAL ASS!"  Of course kudos as well to Skeetergod for such an insane amount of Notority Points.

Peace

Excellent, good to see this kind of gumption! Get ready to get stuck in! Hopefully others will be as fortunate in hunting down your rivals and stomping some tinheads into the ground!

I will be joining the 1000-1500pt series, but games won't commence until next week.  I got about 4 hrs worth of work to get some really spiffy terrain.  I'll be happy to show it off in the pics.

This might sound dumb; but I maight actually be forced to paly both sides of the fence and fight for both Orkz and da Necrons.

Right now I am in sector 3 for the Necrons; but I will keep you informed if I get a match wit Bluu in da Phaes, as I just raped a guy pretty bad and now some friends are openly challenging the battleworthyness of me orkz. Thus they may need to stomped back into submission good and propa. I will keep you informed to the when's and where's dat da Stompingz occur (If day occur).

Cheers

Well you know your welcome on the team moc, but I think Gutstikk wanted to try and prevent people from playing on both sides of the fence.  You'll have to get the go ahead from him before I can add you up.

Besides anyone that played for both Necrons and Orks would likely have an easy time winning the competition inside the competition for most Notoriety Points, and seeing how I'm finishing up a trophy that will be sent out to the big Notoriety winner, it'd be a shame if someone had an unfair advantage in that little contest.

So... while we have a local necro player, his necrons are one of his secondary army and he almost never plays them.  He usually plays... orks.  But he has no issues with folks using one of his spare armies, so could I borrow his necrons, play them against his orks, but then report it and credit it from the orkie side?  :D  Pretty please?  I promise to try and win as the necrons!

On a slightly more serious (well... more realistic) note, I'll probably end up joining in tier 3, but I would rather join a less populated tier to help fill in (tier 1 looks like it needs love).  Waiting til my next game night to see if I can talk the group into running lower point games for awhile.

Post by: Gutstikk on September 16, 2010, 03:00:51 PM
You'd be better off getting him to let someone else use his army, and then fighting that someone else with your Orks. That, or bribe him into dusting them off and fielding them himself.

To be honest I think most players these days play between 1850-2000, and I know that's where I've played almost every game for the past year or two.  I decided to place myself in Sector 2 though because we need players there (as well as Sector 1), and it gives me a bit more of a challenge as I have to struggle with making a competitive list that can go up against all comers without having the almost standard 2 units of Lootas, Flash Gitz and Wagons I've grown so accustomed to.

So Azonalanthious pick the spot you think you can play at, where you know you'll have fun.  In the event that by the onset of the event and we only have 1 player in Sector 1 I'll have to place myself there just to make sure we have coverage (note that it is ideal to have at least 2 players in each sector, that way if one looses we can still accrue CP).

Tournies at out local comic shot tend to run at 1,000 points for time consideration - lets us get all the games done in a reasonable amount of time.  But local game night tends to be 2,000 points lists, either 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 for a 4,000 point game.

It has been agreed with my opponent (whom still has not signed up for the necron board) to play 3k points and the scenerio is ambush (from battle mission book)

Here is my list, also hope to get the piece of terrain made before the battle so we can have pictures. I guess his wife lets him use the camera... :o

Without furher ado....

3: 12 BOYS; Slugga and Choppa, NOB, ‘eavy armor, boss pole, Power Claw.    = 117 TRUKK; Red Paint,Ram,Plank = 50;    Total = 167
4: 12 “ARD BOYS; Armor, Slugga and Choppa, NOB, boss pole, Power Claw.    = 160 TRUKK; Red Paint,Ram,Plank = 50;    Total = 210
*warboss rule one unit counts as troops

FAST
1:  1 Deffcopta, Twin Link Rocket Launcha, Buzz Saw     = 70
2:  1 War Buggies, Tracks, Red Paint, with Skorcha    = 45
3:  1 War Buggies, Tracks, Red Paint, Twin Link Rocket Launcher    = 45

3: Battle Wagon; red paint, grot rigger, Reinforced ram, Kill Kannon, 1 big shoota,    = 170

Grand Total 2980

PS, since I don't use army builder if anyone feels up to it to run it through to make sure I got the points right please do. (I know, pretty sad for the orkountant to ask for math help.....)

The boss pole is generally better placed within the unit he is joining. That way if he goes solo the Unit still gets the benefit of the Boss Pole while he has a better LD to work with anyway, and he will usually take fewer LD tests than a squad would anyway.

Same comment as above; but I really do like this guy (I have one too).

I only run two of these in my list and I love them, fast, assaulty, etc. I go without the Eavy Armour; but since you have the points, why not.

4: 12 “ARD BOYS; Armor, Slugga and Choppa, NOB, boss pole, Power Claw.    = 160 TRUKK; Red Paint,Ram,Plank = 50;    Total = 210
Not using Ardboys myself; but I am seeing more and more reason to actually take a squad in bigger games, so godo for you to invest in them (explosions will hurt a lot less).

Now your reminding me of Gutstikk'er. I like Flash Gitz and I think they are often under-rated, so once again good for you to take them onboard.

Quote
3: Battle Wagon; red paint, grot rigger, Reinforced ram, Kill Kannon, 1 big shoota,    = 170
Well, now I get a picture of 3 BW's and 3 Trukk's to go with the rest of the army. Super fast, Super shooty, and even more Close Combat. I think you have a really good balance in this list overall, and I would say that its ready to go All Comers at any time, probably looks amazing on the battlefield too, and everyone knows that the best looking mobs always fight better.

Title: The Orks Have Landed
Post by: SKEETERGOD on September 18, 2010, 06:38:45 PM
Well it seems I must have misread somewhere.... I thought it started on the 16th, oooopppssiii

Thats OK, as AWTY Dakkatoof doesn't like to go to an used war, so he started this one. The orks have first blood and this means that I have led the way and cleared all you gitz a landing zone.

Seems sort of funny that my first WAGGHHH will be against my starting army

You got it Hekkastor, signed up and ready to waaaagh!

Additionally if you join the Way of the Waaaagh: The Green Menace, you'd qualify for some teef for your participation in the event.  To clarify the WotW (as it is often abbreviated) is the Ork Chain of Command of the forum, which offers bonuses and has set up the event as well as future events (well in the nature of full disclosure the Knucles on Necrodermis campaign was not exclusively created by the WotW, but it was one of the driving forces and instrumental in the construction of the event).

Well it seems I must have misread somewhere.... I thought it started on the 16th, oooopppssiii
Yeah a lot of people thought that as well, and I really feel that the general enthusiasm for the campaign as died away quite a bit because of what can be perceived as waiting around for it to begin.  This being the very first Cross Forum campaign, as well as the first multiforum event since 08 mistakes were bound to happen, the mistake in this particular area being that signup was supposed to start on the 16th with every detail being hushed up prior to that, but... well mistakes were made.

Just for everyone's knowledge the campaign is supposed to start on the 26th, which is still a week away.

But the prize for the most Notorious player of the campaign is nearing completion, and when it is complete I will be posting a pic for all to see (although I really hope that the winner will be in the continental US to keep my shipping costs down, as I will ship the prize to the winner via Mail and oversee's shipping costs a mouthful of teef).

Go ahead and toss me into tier 3 it looks like, no one really wanted to play lower point values when I chatted with them tonight.  :-\  Which means that for reasons no one can define, I'll end up playing 1 or 2 games at our normal 2000 and then everyone will decide to switch to 1000 for no reason at all after I've picked my tier, forcing me to change midstream.  But that's life.  :D

Tier 3 here, have a game lined up for monday, Taking pics and writing it up.  I'll have an army list up asap.

Go ahead and toss me into tier 3 it looks like, no one really wanted to play lower point values when I chatted with them tonight.  :-\  Which means that for reasons no one can define, I'll end up playing 1 or 2 games at our normal 2000 and then everyone will decide to switch to 1000 for no reason at all after I've picked my tier, forcing me to change midstream.  But that's life.  :D

I'm sure it's not such a big deal to get swapped to sector 3 as needed. If you're cleaning up, the point expenditure could be well worth it.

edit:
Campaign is now open and the first match's bonus round has been posted. Get fighting!

Is Everybody IN?!  The Waaagh is about to begin.

...er, it already started? (I was gone at a Convention.)  Well than be sure to play dem games, and also PM me the results whether they be positive or negative.  Also has no one really has 100% vision of the boards as a whole be sure to put a post here or PM me if you put up a Bat Rep, put up a Hero Portrait, build up an Ancient Tablet (details on exactly what it is will be forth comming I promise!), plopping together some Campaign Fiction of your warband's (or of Warlord Anakron's) exploits against those Necrons.

Besides earning teef for the WotW, participating in these extra parts of the campaign earn you Notoriety Points, and the player with the most NP will receive a special One of a Kind Terrain piece built by me (check the main KoN thread for a couple pics).

Peace and I'll see ya out there

Okay guys Round 1 is shaping up nicely, but there's still a lot of players on our team who haven't logged a game in with me.  Come on guys, you don't want those daff silver zombie Necrons beating us at our own game!

In all seriousness if you can't get a match in this week, that's cool and all, but it does make you chances at winning the Notoriety prize all the more distant.  And while I have no qualms with sending this deluxe hand painted Necron Obelisk terrain piece to Moc (who's already got an early Notoriety point lead), don't you think YOU might like to have it?

As for my game a bat-rep will be written.  I got all my notes and everything from it (sadly no pictures this time around), it was a fairly close match, and one that had me sweating more than once.  However my opponent made a few mistakes, and in the game of 40k (or war) any tiny mistake can lead to disaster (as it did for his Panzee Eldar).

The Highlights: Mega Nobz running up to a Wraithlord (I mean they're MegaNobz its not like they have monogyro wheels they're supposed to be slow!), a unit of Sluggas waaaghing straight up the table from reserve to avenge my Kannons (those poor poor grots never stood a chance against the Warp Spiders), and the Rokkit Koptas shooting out the last wound on the 2nd Wraithlord right as they came on the board.

My opponents biggest mistake (other than being nice and re-wrote his list without vehicles which he really didn't have to do) was that he was too conservative with his Jetbikes.  On turn 2 when things turned pretty nasty for me he could have sent those Jets into an assault which could have taken out my Meganobz before they really did anything, but instead they were hiding behind terrain. 

But I will again note that this was a very close game, and I am looking forward to playing against him again (he wants to try the bonus mission with his Iyanden in the 'hot-box' center deployment sometime this coming week).

Anyway I've rambled on long enough
Peace

That will be 4 points for the ork side, (sneaky playing a double bonus game huh?)

Also I must have not seen it because it is in plain sight or something are we supposed to PM anybody for these battles or just post a link in this thread?

Had a 2k pt game against BA today. I would like to use it for the campaign.

I do not have photos, but there should be a YouTube video report posted in the next day or two that I will provide a link to. My gaming group has a YouTube channel called 2 Smoking Bolters.

My Orks:

2 big meks with PK, KFF, cybork

14 lootas

4 squads of 30 boyz with nob, PK, EA.

7 warbikers, nob, PK.

3 squads of 3 kans with rokkits.

His Blood Angels:

1 Librarian
1 Librarian Furioso

3 flamestorm cannon baal predators

4X 5 man assault squads in razorbacks with assault cannons, sgt with power weapon

1 vindicator
2 baal pred with lascannons

We roll for game type and its seize ground with 4 objectives. For deployment we roll spearhead.

I lose the roll off for first turn.

My opponent deploys a massive tank formation and my worries begin, how am I going to kill that many tanks with an ork army?

I deploy my entire army in my tiny little corner, placing lootas in terrain and kans in the front. I place my meks to ensure good coverage from the KFF.  The warbikers are hiding behind a bastion near middle of the table.

Scouts:

He scouts his flamestorm cannons 18" towards a boyz squad.

Top 1:

I fail to seize initiative. He moves his flamestorm preds into position, moves his tank formation, advances his libby dread, and swings out his vindi towards my flank.  He proceeds to murder 17 of 30 boyz with his flamestorm cannons and fails to damage the kans with them. He fires his assault cannons from two razorbacks reducing my boyz mob to 9 and a mek so i am no longer fearless, however i pass the ld check. he fires his remaining tanks and razorbacks at my kans and manages to kill one.

Bottom 1:

I advance my remaining boyz towards the flamestorm preds, advance two boyz mobs forward, advance the other kans forward, and swing a boyz mob upwards towards an objective. i fail to do any damage with my kans rokkits, the lootas destroy one razorback and one of the 5 marines dies, they fail a pinning test. i cause a stunned result on one razorback with the dakka guns from my warbikers. i assault his flamestorm preds with my 9 boyz+ mek and my 3 kans, wrecking one, immobilizing one, and stunning another.

Top 2:

He backs his formation of tanks up, hides his 4 marines behind another bastion where an objective is placed, and advances his libby dread again. his libby dread uses a psychic attack to make my warbikers take a ld test at -2, i fail and they fall off the board. He then shoots his immobilized flamestorm pred at my small boyz mob, causing a wound on every model, leaving the nob and mek with one remaining wound each. He then attempts to fire all of his assault cannons and lascannon preds that are able to shoot at my kans, finding he has moved some out of range, and the ones he manages to score hits against are in kff cover and i make epic saves for no damage at all. He fires his vindi at my three kans at top of table, scatters 6 inches and gets 4 boyz and one kan, 3 boyz die and the kan lives from the KFF save.

Bottom 2:

I advance all boyz mobz, 2 forwards, and one towards an objective at the top of the board, and the mek and nob advance towards his flamestorm pred. 3 kans to join the other two kans at the bottom of the table, i fail to do any damage with rokkits. My kans on the other side of the board also fail to hit with rokkits. i assault his immobilized flamestorm pred with 5 kans and finish the deal, then assault with nob and mek on his other flamestorm, failing to roll a single 6 with 8 attacks.

Top 3:

He backs off his flamestorm pred and positions it to hit the mek and nob. he swings his tank formation back to the middle of the field and backwards and brings his libby dread towards the mek and nob. he unloads into the mek and nob with lascannons and flamestorm pred, killing only the nob. He then autocannons my kans from his razorbacks and again i make ridiculous saves on them. the vindi advances towards my boyz near the top objective and kills 5 of them. he assaults my mek with his libby dread and fails to wound him, my mek immobilizes him in return.

Bottom 3:

I advance my 5 kans upwards toward his tank formation and libby dread. I advance the two central boyz squads forward towards two objectives, and advance the kans up high towards his vindicator. My lootas stun his flamestorm pred,  my kans destroy his demolisher cannon with rokkits up high, and i shoot at one of the razorbacks but fail to hit with the three kans down low. the two kan squad joins the mek against his libby dread, the three other kans down low fail to reach his razorback due to a bad terrain test roll. i destroy one arm off his libby dread, but lose my mek.

Top 4:

He backs his razorback up onto the rear objective and slightly backs up his formation. he unloads into my 3 kans with all of his tanks except vindi, and finally kills the three kans who no longer receive cover from the dead mek. However i still have 5 remaining. He rams my kans up top with his weaponless vindi, i death or glory him and immobilize the vindi and he returns the favor, wrecking one kan. in assault i rip the other arm off his libby dread, but am still locked.

Bottom 4:

I call my waaaagh! My boyz reach his 4 marines on his objective, and he surrenders assuming 30 boyz and a mek will (and should easily) massacre his 4 marines, and my 30 boyz on the other side are within range to score next turn easily.

Afterthoughts:

The combination of kans and KFF can be brutal on a good day of dice results, nearly impossible to kill if you can keep the 4's coming.

Spearhead sucks for orks, nothing like pinning a giant mob of boyz into a small area and making them walk the entire freaking board.

Flamestorm cannons are pretty much broken, i watched three of them kill over 1k points of marines and orks in two games, laying waste to anything falling underneath their template.

Libby dreads are very situational, great for making low ld units fall back and off the edge, especially units that throw 3d6 for the fallback move.

Boyz will be boyz, and good luck killing 120 of them buddy.

Razorback spam is very effective, but not for a long time as they begin to fall like, well, rhinos.

Footslogging across the board makes it impossible to contest or even reach the far back end of the table to contest, thats what the warbikers were for, but we know what happened with them.

TL dakka guns are a lot more useful then i imagined, pretty much TL heavy bolters with a lower ap value, but TL.

I made a few positioning mistakes with my meks, but got away with it due to lucky placement of kans behind terrain and a wrecked pred, granting me the much needed cover saves against mass razorback/tank spam.

Sounds like a blast, I know the kan wall is an effective army build and have seen one in action a few times so I know it can be hard to beat.

Yes I agree the baal flamer pred is just sick...  Too bad we aren't allowed to loot vehicles like before as I would have at least one by now.

O', and two teef to your account. Good job.

Round 2 has opened. Due to the nature of this campaign, you can still get missions for Round 1 in and have them counted till the end of the week, when Round 3 starts.

Also note that I haven't heard anything about redeployment, so the current sector deployment has been left untouched. Let me know if I need to update this!

I'd like to receive an interim report for Round 1 from your team commander, just to make certain that when it comes time to report the full results for Round 1, it is done correctly!

I got the bonus mission Interrupted in on Friday vs a really cool Tau player.   We had a lot of fun even though we played at his place and he only had fantasy Terrain because he hosted a huge event in Orlando and left his 40k terrain at his brother's house. (beautiful terrain though as you will eventually see in the pics)

Battle report to follow but I achieved the bonus objective with 4 troops choices still remaining including one of the orginal that started in the Kill box.. not to mention the Mad Dok who started with the ard boyz in the kill box....  talk about a dog that got off his leash.....  I think I might want to call this campaign the diary of a Mad Dok......

battle report to follow shortly.......

Good work angel.  I'm going to have to check with Gutstikk on if this battle will also count towards the campaign, as I don't know if he's going to allow multiple games to be counted in the same round, but I'll be a buzzer squig if that doesn't count towards your NP (as it should!).  And I'm glad to hear how the Mad Dok is working out!

As for the rest of you all, to save my own PM box (and yours as well) note that if you didn't get a game in yet for Round 1 its not too late!  Round 1 will officially close in a couple days.  And like Gutstikk said Round 2 officially started today, so lets be ready to continue the Waaaagh into the heart of those metal monstrosities!

Round 2's bonus mission is titled Hiding Something?[url] (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=205138.msg2520580#msg2520580) (click to see the mission).

From the way I understood it after asking the question that you can play a regular mission and a bonus mission per campaign week.  That is just how I understood it.  If I am wrong I apologize.  Check out that last battle report of mine and see what happens after u let the dog off his leash  :)

*tug* *tug* Let me know on this too - managed to get two games in tonight (neither bonus mission games) and if only one regular game counts, then I'm gonna report the one I won (one win, one loss).  :D  Probably do bat reps for both, though not tonight.
Title: Re: Knuckles on Necrodermis - Ork Campaign Command Central
Post by: OD from TV on October 5, 2010, 03:19:13 AM
Well Gutstikk's official word on the matter is...

Quoted from Gutstikk
Quote
No double-credit can be earned in a single sector. You'd have to do the following:
-Player has match
-Player then gets moved from current sector after match [costing a CP]
-Player then fights in an additional sector

You could easily earn quite a few points in a single sector off a single match, especially if it qualifies as a bonus mission match. And you could have a scenario where you do some damage control like so:
-player A in sector 1 loses
-player B in sector 2 loses
-player A moves to sector 2, wins
-player B moves to sector 1, wins

Of course, at that point you're spending 2 CP to gain 2 CP, so it might be a moot point there. In fact, the only time it'd make sense is moving a player to an empty sector for a second round, hoping they win and therefore grab three points at the cost of 1 point.

If a player's first match wasn't a bonus mission, but they then want to play the bonus mission as a second match, they can grab the bonus but the game itself, if fought in the same sector, doesn't really count for anything else.

So to answer the question of 'can we get credit for multiple games per round' is yes and no.

Yes you will get the NP and earn the Ork team a CP if no one else played a Bonus Mission, but it won't count as an official campaign game unless you change sectors, which as already pointed out would cost us a valuable CP.

*tug* *tug* Let me know on this too - managed to get two games in tonight (neither bonus mission games) and if only one regular game counts, then I'm gonna report the one I won (one win, one loss).  :D  Probably do bat reps for both, though not tonight.
Well Azonalanthious the hope is that players participating in the event would tell their opponent that their game is for an online competition, specifically that instead of being a mere one off game that the outcome effects a campaign with players across the world.  That being said if you win or lose that game, it is the one which counts.  Of course we operate on the Honor's System.

Peace

Post by: Azonalanthious on October 5, 2010, 04:06:48 AM
My local group all knows I'm doing an online campaign (and given that we have three ork players, I've been trying to recruit).  But since I wasn't sure if both games would count, I couldn't tell them if both would count. :/ If I was to pick which game would have counted before playing them I WOULD have picked the wolves (mostly because the guy playing the tyranids has a reputation for bringing the most competative, cut-throat tournament list possible in what is otherwise a very friendly, laid back group -- to the point that the guy who usually hosts flatly refuses to play him anymore).  BUT - we normally only play one game on game night and if that had been the case it would have been the 'nid game - we finished early so managed to squeeze in a second, but that's uncommon.  So... I guess I don't know what I should report.  Your the team lead - I'll dump it on you and report whichever you say to.  :D

Dang...

Of course the bonus scenario would have to be civil waaagh, the other ork players at my local are also hunters and hunting season just opened so I won't be seeing them for a few weeks. I guess I will have to offer someone a few of my orks so I can play a civil waagh. Or maybe I can mug lettheharvestbegin and take half of his necrons, er, wait... then he would get the points.... what a conundrum, and a cruel twist of fate.....


Can I instead loan him an ork and he adds it to his army as a traitor (kinda like the dark angels do for fallen)?
Title: Re: Knuckles on Necrodermis - Ork Campaign Command Central
Post by: OD from TV on October 5, 2010, 12:41:35 PM
Well Azonalanthious, you gotta do what you think is right.  After all I'm just some lame college student in LA, you shouldn't exactly put so much faith in me to tell you what to do.  That being said, if the Nid player is crazy about winning every match, and going to rule lawyering, loop hole usage, and absurd rule abuse then don't play him for the competition, in fact don't play him at all.  The game (and the competition) is really about having fun more than anything else, and players who obsess over winning in my opinion aren't any fun to play with or against.

And yes (sadly) Round 2's bonus mission is a civil waaagh, which I didn't see coming quite yet.  For me as there are no fellow Orks in my area I'm whipping together a quick IA 8 list to lend to someone or to use against my standard 1500.

Oh and remember you don't have to play bonus missions.  In fact when we were setting the event up in the planning stages I fought really hard for the bonus missions as I think they add an incredible amount of variety and fun into the game as a whole.

Peace

Title: Re: Knuckles on Necrodermis - Ork Campaign Command Central
Post by: SKEETERGOD on October 9, 2010, 09:56:09 AM
I am modifying the bonus game to giving my opponent lettheharvestbegin an ork character and taking one of his. Using a WHFB scenario where the traitor is serving the other army and acts normally and can even confer bonuses (like LD etc.) to his "new" friends.

The goal of course is to kill the traitor and keep your new friend alive.

Of course since there might not be any leway on the modification of modifications of bonus games it may or may not count as a bonus point. (I am willing to offer gifts, gratuaties, campaign contributions, or outright bribes)

Either way a new Batrep in the continuing saga of the ork take over of Necrodermus will be forthcoming.

Also since I was browsing around I accidently found next weeks bonus game, so I am leaking the information here so all you fellow ork generals can start preparing for the next fight.

This also means I will have to find a non necron army to pick on.... Hmmmm that narrows it down to Imperials, marines or guard. Maybe I can get Commisar Fuklaw to finally play against my orks. (insert evil laughing green smiley here)

Quote
Secure the Tablet! (Bonus Mission for Round 3)
Archeologists have been unearthing Necron ruins in the area and stumbled upon an ancient Tablet about the [device].  The Orks think they've finally found it after interrogating a Rogue Trader, whose fate is best left unsaid. The Necrons believe they've found it because the trader had set off a beacon, drawing the attention of the Necron Lords.

For this mission place a single objective marker in the center of the board at the beginning of the battle, representing the ancient tablet.  Unlike usual objective games, any unit of infantry can claim it by moving into base contact with it.  Once they do the counter travels with that unit until the unit is killed.  Any unit holding the Tablet cannot be transported by any vehicle, and independent characters may not voluntarily join or leave the unit. The player who controls the objective at the end of the game wins; if neither controls the objective, the game is a draw. This mission cannot be played against Necrons or Orks.

Sorry for my absence the last few days, real life can be such a...

Anyway, we're in the middle of round 2, I have a game scheduled for Thurs, but so far I've only got info from incredibleskulk and Skeetergod.  Where are my Orks?

Oi!  Youze all hidin like runts?  Why so scared, we all know that there's no such thing as Morgargdurlurkgulsh ardregsnikslag.

Seriously though, we have a couple great missions out right now.  Round 2 will be closing at the end of the week, and I for one would appreciate it if we got a couple more games in before that happens.

And for those of you not interested in the Civil Waaagh/Double cross mission, we have what is in my opinion the most important mission recently opened to us, Mission 3's Secure the Tablet (which anyone who really follows this thread would have already known thanks to Skeetergod's spoiler).  This is the brass ring guys, secure that tablet and we can Waaagh all over the stars in the living metal bodies of the gods.

Anyway, we're in the middle of round 2, I have a game scheduled for Thurs, but so far I've only got info from incredibleskulk and Skeetergod.  Where are my Orks?

Well, as far as I go, I decided that the best way to handle the two game problem was to split the difference and report neither officially - I'm not going to win in noteriaty anyways I'm sure and this way I don't give my side the negative of a loss OR the positive of a win.

My regular monday game night was canceled (the guy who usually hosts had a funeral to go to) so no game from there, but I've a tournie coming up on Saturday and will have something to report from that.

I had a 500 points game against a Necron player the other day, and I managed to get a pretty clean win. I don't have any pictures or vids, but the basic summary is that I got first turn, rammed in to CC with his two squads with my DeathKoptas (1 against a 10 man squad, 2 Koptas against a 10 man sqaud plus Warscythed lord), and through good luck and miracle, his Lord didn't murder my Koptas in time. I got my 20 Slugga Boyz, and my 5 Nob + Warboss squads into close enough to use WAAAGH and then tear apart what was left of the Necrons, without the Necrons having the ability to shoot once during the game. Kinda proud of myself, though it probably was mostly luck and a smaller board.

Lot to respond to, so if I'm short, its due to size (and time) constraints.

sorry workn' on it.  I've been sick and blah blah...insert generic believe if you wish excuse....blah.

I've tried for two weeks to get my orks into action and the game keeps breaking before we can even meet.  It's damn frustrating.
Well don't worry too much about it Jack, but know that its already a real close game, the Necrons are beating us currently by a single point!  I know how it is for games to get planned and break, and how much it [expletive deleted] but there is nothing that says you can't just walk into your LGS or LGW for a quick pick up game.

I had no other ork opponents to play so I went up against Janner's Tau army.  Orks won but I sure pulled some of the most bone brained stuff I have done in awhile.
...
I will try to get Round 3 in but am leaving for Vegas on Thur and won't be back til Tue.   hopefully i can get a game in on Wed or Thur.  We will see.
Nothing says you gotta play the bonus missions, although they do help your NP level rise.  Have fun in Vegas, and good luck.  If you get a chance play a round of Black Jack at the cheap 5 dollar tables (I've found that to be the only place in Vegas I actually win).

Well, as far as I go, I decided that the best way to handle the two game problem was to split the difference and report neither officially - I'm not going to win in noteriaty anyways I'm sure and this way I don't give my side the negative of a loss OR the positive of a win.

My regular monday game night was canceled (the guy who usually hosts had a funeral to go to) so no game from there, but I've a tournie coming up on Saturday and will have something to report from that.
Well Azonalanthious I certainly didn't mean to bum you out man.  And as for Notority, sure Skeetergod got a great lead, but it is possible to overtake him through Combat Fiction, Campaign Portraits, and making a Tablet marker (which you'll kinda need for Week 3's bonus mission).  Please don't get discouraged Az.

@ incredibleskulk= WOW another vid batrep, these things are so [expletive deleted] cool.  Makes me want a video camera to record my games.  I think it can really show the moment of the battle where things start to swing from one side to the other.

@Hekkastor = ALLRIGHT!  We have a success in Round 1 this week (take that Necrons) and your game actually wins us an extra CP and steals one of the Necrons CP!  We're on the road to ruining those silver boyz!

phew...
So my opponent tomorrow canceled and the only bud I know that can fill in for a game happens to be my worst Skumgrod, and while he does have a Necron army, I already get the feeling that he's not bringing them to the table and I'll have to face some Plague Marines instead.

Peace and lets keep gaming guys!

No, no, not at all.  I never expected to win notoriety wise because I have no intention of doing a picture, fiction, or making a tablet.  So like I said, really not worried about the loss of notoriety by not reporting and that struck me as the fairest way to handle the situation.  :D  And really don't need the prize of a piece of terrain anyways - one of our local guys has been playing literally since 40k was released and has built up more terrain then god over the years.

Faction Leader here, we’ze got da lead and we needz ta keep it!  So far in Round 3 we have 3 games, each a battle for the Ancient Tablet that holds the secrets of the Necrodermis Generator!  This is a crucial moment and we need all da boyz we can get to hold onto it!

Also since at the moment there are only 3 Tablet markers (Skeetergod's, Moc's and my own) if you get a chance plop one up!  It doesn’t have to be as fancy as Skeetergod's or Moc's (both of which I think are amazing by the way), all that’s really necessary is a medium sized base and some creativity.  And not only at the end of that Tablet marker process do you have something to play this week’s Bonus Mission, but something that you could use in all future objective missions!

Tablet makers also earn us CP, as well as earn you NP.

Peace

The campaign has now concluded. It'll be a couple days before I sort all of this out. Make certain you have your final round reported to your captain and finish up all extra activities [like fiction pieces] by Monday night, so it's ready for me Tuesday morning!

Thanks to all who participated and made this event a blast to run! I'll be filling the goody bag soon.

OK Guys, Gutstikk as called an early close to the campaign (can't say I blame him after all he's done 98.9 % of all the work setting this up and running it for the past 2 months), so let me know all your closing stuff ASAP.

Peace

Well I can't finish my fiction piece as I still have one more battle. The living stompa has to get off of the planet to wage waagh on the universe.

I have a battle scheduled to play the stompa vs victims, erm, ugh, I mean the necrons later this week. Ending the campaign a little early has caught me by surprise. I promise I will finish the work after the game and the final batrep, even though the batrep won't count.

Can you give me an extension on the fiction until this Saturday? If not I will create an epic ending that will only be shadowed by great literary works like Catcher in the Rye, and Slaughterhouse 5.  ;)

Got my week 4 game in today.  I posted the battle report here...
http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206806.0 (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206806.0)

I played my Tau using the "It's Them" game.  I know it was supposed to be against necrons but i don't have any necron players around me.  It seemed fitting to be a grudge match and considering how my opponent used Farsight... a perfect ork vs tau grudge match at that.

i scored us another win... depending if they go with the bonus or not cuz it wasn't against necrons so not sure how that will work.

I just finished a fun scrap with a friend of mine, me playing orks and him Necrons. We didn't use any of the special missions due to his lack of experience (he is still trying to figure out the basics, so yeah...) but I did manage a hard win. As a handicap, I let him play 500 points of anything in the necron codex, and he rolled with a whole lotta flayed ones and a lord, which made things harder to accomplish, especially since they managed to get the charge thanks to a really bad round of WAAGH rolling ( ones for every single squad). My Warboss and PK nobz did a fine job, my boys got scratched quite a bit, and a two of my Koptas got killed due to the Lords warscythe. Still I phased him out on turn 3.
Another win for the Green Machine

ahem *in a Professor Farnsworth voice* "Good News everyone!"

Gutstikk made a slight error and the campaign continues!!!!  Play those last missions and if you can get in Batreps, as if everybody on the team posts one we get bonus points!  (blurg I gotta write one too!  Talk about down to the last minute!)  If you can put up your Orky leader in the Campaign Portraits, or write up some fiction behind your Waaagh's exploits on the campaign trail.  Both will earn you NP, WotW Teef, a link to your Orky exploits in the WotW Vault, and earn the team some extra points.

Although I do need to make an announcement:  You must (and I stress this MUST) have all your stuff posted in by Saturday Forum Time 7:00 (keep in mind that I am stating this in Forum Time Zone, which is likely not your time zone so be sure to check).  This is due to my need to report the final tallies to our esteemed Lord and Master Foamy err, Gutstikk (I swear that squirrel's brainwashing had no effect on me).  I am asking this as this Saturday (like many people) have major plans and am unlikely to get to a computer until Sunday or Monday night, and I don't want the final tally to be delayed.

That being said let me move onto congrats to Hekkastor cause if I'm reading this right you phased out a Necron on turn 3 with an opponent having 500 points over you.  That is FANTASTIC!  In fact that is Orky to the EXTREME!  I don't think I'd be able to do that, even against a newbie player.  So everybody be sure to give Hekkastor a hand for that!

Peace

I will have my final batrep with pictures done no later than 8PM central time. Then I will immediatly finish my fiction shortly thereafter. I hope that is 7pm forum time. I looked around and couldn't find what time zone the forum is in. I never really paid attention to the time part before.

Hope it all squeezes in. (http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z251/moc065/40%20K/Orkz/greensmiley-1.jpg)

Your welcome for the Green Smiley (I butchered it a little; but I thought that actually made it feel more Orky).

And Best of Luck in the campaign, my only regrets are that I never got a Necron vs Necron game, and that I couldn't pop over to face any of you in person, as I am sure there would have been some serious Arse Kicking going on, or some Circuit Stompin; but either way I enjoyed the campaign and I am sure that any game vs any of you guys would have been pure awesome.

Cheers

For me meeting you in person would be amazing moc, and I can say the same for Skeetergod, angel of death 007, and Gutstikk.  Well there are quite a few others in that list as well, but hey I'm just being honest.

Although equally the same is that I think I'd be more than just a little intimidated playing against any of you.  You're all amazing people that I wouldn't mind loosing a game to.

http://www.thenecro.com/defaultMAIN.htm (http://www.thenecro.com/defaultMAIN.htm)

I have played there and even won a best sportsman award. It is a well planned event. Maybe we could meet and play after the days tourney time is over. After all who goes to a tourney to get sleep?

So how does next June sound? (or July depending on the organizers)

Heard it is going to be in July.  My opponent who I have played most of my campaign games against is one of the organizers for the event.  So you are in Florida too.  Well now I definately have to make it as I was talking to Janner about going and he said he organizes both the 40k and fantasy for the event.
I can post the exact date when they get it they are working thru a few issues with setting a date.

Now I got that darn "It's a small world" song in my head......   THANKS GUYS!

OD I agree it would be nice to meet up with some of the regulars on here who I have been interacting with for years now and never met.  Mostly due to my darn scheduling with work.

Week 4 game in, unfortunatly not the expected results. Read the Batrep...
 The Stompa  (http://www.40konline.com/index.php?topic=206940.msg2531819#msg2531819)

I also finished my fiction piece and my hero is painted. I ran out of time to play this week so did not get a chance to play him in a game, but the people at the store really liked him, and one even offered to buy it.

It was a great campaign, hopefully we can go on to pick on the IG next, as I have a perfect victim er, um, I mean fellow gamer that has a lot of IG and a certain named commisar.

I got all your results into the main campaign thread on the Ork side and they can now be double-checked. In the NP section by your name, make sure that each week you have the right credit for total wins, total batreps, and total special missions played. In some cases special missions were not counted due to not facing Necrons for "It's them!", or other similar disqualifiers, but for the most part, if you played it, you should have credit for it.

The info is broken up by week like so:
A)1,2,0,1 <--- That would be column A) for games won, with each number corresponding to total games for each week. This player would have played 1 match in round 1, 2 matches in round 2, no matches in round 3, and a match in round 4.

Column D is only credited where a player played the bonus mission for Round 2, Double-Cross. It is bonus notoriety for putting others on your own side in their proppa place! This is a one-time, flat-rate credit.

Columns E, F, and G are for the hero portrait, the ancient tablet, and the fiction submissions, and are each a flat-rate of 5 pts.

Waiting on the Necron side, gonna do my best with what I have...

This campaign has really been insane!  I don't remember there being quite as much work when I was faction coordinator in 08, but I have a feeling that's really because so much time as passed that I must not be remembering correctly.  Its been tremendous fun, and I think it really helped get a lot of people (both Necron and Ork) outside of their usual forums and into the greater 40konline community.  It's also been a great boon for the fledgling CoC that is the Ork WotW as well as the Necron CoC.


Hmm... let me rephrase this...
I await the results and may the best boy Machine ORK Win !

I definately remember 2008 campaign.  I must say this had some good variances from that.  I really liked the fact that the 08 campaign kinda incorperated everyone and hope we get to do something like that again it is hard when you live in a smaller gaming community to find opponents who field a certain type of army.  I will say though that they campaign was very well organised and a lot of fun to participate in.  I didn't get around to doing a portrait or background because I had my trip in the middle of the 3rd / 4th week plus was working on the painting article.  Too much to balance.  But both were definately a good add on to incorperate different aspects of the hobby.  Would have definately been a portrait of Mad Dok and Snikrot though as both of them were huge contributers in my games.
