Turn 2

Summary of the beginning of Turn 2 is as follows.  Warriors of Chaos won both Turn 1 battles though its general Lytrias was captured in the process.  Nevertheless the Arkyrian Army has taken an early lead by claiming a relic from the battle with Lizardmen.  Every army except Lizardmen build wizard towers.  But then again they don't need to.  Lizardmen instead rebuild its fortress.  While mining for gold both Warriors of Chaos and Lizardmen had theirs collapsed leaving Daemons with the only current working one.  As for battles, Warriors of Chaos decided to invade the High Elves.  Unfortunately for them Daemons and Lizardmen wanted a round 2 leaving them (meaning me) with 3 battles this turn.

I will be adding a new page, Regiments of Renown or something to that effect.  Throughout the campaign some units or heroes will be granted special gifts or magic items.  When that happens its composition is frozen and will always have to be used when that army fights.  So the new page will be the list of these special units from every army.  So far Warriors of Chaos is the only race with any.  Over the weekend I will have this page up, the battle page updated, hopefully a current version of the map and anything else I can muster.

New FAQs

Games Workshop release new FAQs for the main book and probably about half the army books.  I don't think Lizardmen or High Elves were new but Daemon and Warriors are.  Two quick things I think will effect the campaign is that 1.) my Banner of Rage does give my horses extra attacks and 2.) anyone with monstrous cavalry now uses the highest toughness instead of the riders.  I suggest all the players to read up on the changes.  Happy gaming!

First Blood

The kickoff meeting happen Friday and things got interesting fast.  A random event destroy a fortress and a mine collapse upon itself.  There was some confusion on the rules that got cleared up at the meeting or soon afterward.  There is currently a brief pause in the campaign to allow players to update their roster before we will continue on with the 2 schedule battles.  In the meantime I have already begun working on three new pages.  A Battle page that will list the schedule for battles each turn, a Map page that will have pictures of the map and descriptions of whats going on and an Empire page that will take a closer look at the heroes and villains in the campaign and the armies they lead.

The kickoff meeting has been schedule for this Friday Oct. 12 at 7:00 pm.  Sadly we have also lost a couple players, but that's life.  I'm sorry things have lag so long.

In other news I have purchase a digital camera I hope will come in this week.  When it does I will be updating the site with pictures of the map.

The scheduling of the kickoff meeting is happening now.  I need the input from one more player and then I will pick a date for the kickoff.  It should be within the next two or three weeks at the most.

Where are we now?

The map is assemble. I'm now working on special landmarks. They need to be unique and standout compare to normal landmarks so am crafting them from bits I have. The players have receive their pregame instructions and most have sent me their character list. Sorry its moving slow but at least we are moving.

Another update

I have finished painting my tiles and have began assembling the map. Once done I will be working on painting special landmarks. Also I'm waiting to hear back from a player before everyone can work on their characters. Sorry about the delays, but hopefully we be ready to start soon.

Thursday, August 9, 2012


I am currently working on building the map which includes painting a couple of pieces.  I will be emailing players Thursday afternoon/evening instructions on what needs to be done before the start of the campaign.  Once I finished the map and receive character lists from each player we will be ready to schedule a kickoff meeting.

One Last Extension

I've made up a flyer and had it put up at Hero Complex this weekend. I want to give new people a week to see the flyer before proceeding with the campaign. I was also told my order had shipped so it should be in this week. With those two things in mind, I'm delaying the deadline by one more week. The plan is still the same as in the last post, with August 4 being the new deadline.

Sunday, July 22, 2012


I order a couple of items for the campaign three weeks ago that still have not arrived. One of which was for the map. As a result I am extending the deadline by a week. Therefore the plans for the campaign is as follows:

1. Deadline to signup is July 28
2. After the deadline I will build the map based on current players
3. I will inform players on campaign specific rules and what they need to do before the start of the campaign
4. I will choose a kickoff date base on the available of current players
5. Campaign Kickoff!

If anyone has any questions or concerns about this, please connect me either by email or comments.

What is Blood in the Badlands and an Army Roster

In case anyone does not know what Blood in the Badlands is, here is a brief description.  Badlands is an alternate set of rules for the Mighty Empires campaign.  The campaign will take place over 12 turns, which represents one year in game time.  Each turn players will play at least one Warhammer Fantasy battle while also expanding their empire by moving armies, fortifying territory and collecting gold from mines on a tile map.  Some of the Warhammer battles will take advantage of the Storm of Magic rules for added magic and monster craziness.  The seasons each have their own rules that slightly alters game play.  Each season last 3 game turns and will end with a mega-battle, an epic battle involving every player.  The winner of the last mega-battle is the winner of the entire campaign.

I've add an Army Roster page so anybody can see who has sign up so far and what army they are planning on using. Any questions about the roster or the campaign itself please email me at
