SAD Warhammer 40K Campaign 2009


SAD Warhammer 40K Campaign 2009

The 2009 40K campaign will be run as an Imperium (hooray for the good guys) vs. Invader (the boo hiss Axis of Evil).   This will enable there to be a winning General plus a winning Faction.

The campaign will last from Wednesday May 6th to Wednesday July 1st.  You may play as many games as you wish, but may not play the same opponent more than once in a week.  All games will be as per the 5th Edition rules using the Current version of the armies’ codex for all armies.


Army selection

The army selection will be of 1500Pts (or less) and must follow the single force list minimum and maximums, special characters (from the codex) may be used without seeking prior permission, however no allies/allied forces may be used, even if allowed by the codex; no forge world, or trial armies either.  I.e. if it aren’t in yer Codex in yer mitt you cain’t use it Bubba…. If in doubt ask!!! You may amend your list but cannot change the army.



At the start of the start of the campaign each player will start with 3 territories.  Territory 1 is the capital which cannot be taken or generate an asset.  Territories 2&3 generate an asset as per the list below.  During each Battle up to 3 asset cards (and no more than 3) may be used to help you win…. Each asset card can only be used once, but is available again for the next battle (if you still hold it).  At the end of the battle if you win you get a random asset, you generate 1 new random asset from the list below.  If the battle is drawn you keep all your current assets as it’s a standoff.

If you have not won a game either as a result of 2 Draws or 3 Losses, generate 1 random asset.



At the start of each battle the mission will be randomly generated in accordance with the rule book and the victory will be decided in the same way.  Draws are possible and will be dealt with as above.

At the end of each week the asset leader will be the overall leader, if there is a tie, then the asset leader who is also in the leading faction will be the leader, if it is still a tie they must endeavor to play each other next week to achieve this position.

At the end if the campaign, Wednesday 1st July, the Asset leader is the overall winner… we hope.


Fair Play

Remember this is a club challenge, not a Mainstream Tournament.  The purpose of the campaign is to allow you to play different people and the assets are there to add some fun.  Any serious breaches will be forced to face 2000Pts of Dark Eldar death for their next battle and will lose all assets as a result… J LOL seriously please enjoy the campaign but don’t be a beard.


Only 1 of each asset may be held and each asset may only be used once per game.  Some assets last for the whole game or in the case of Commander items, until he is dead.
