So, I have finally introduced 5 of my friends to and we are going to have a start at a campaign next thursday.

We have a good range of squads between us: My IG, Renegade guard, eldar, two ork players and a chaos player.

I'll be sure to take pleanty of pics and notes on what happens.

Looking forward to seeing the campaign - looking forward to the pics.

A small request: Could we get a look at the squads the other guys in your group have created (I love to see what other people have built for their squads - even if it's just standard GW models reused).

Good luck with the IG!

I'm ready for a new story! I know you and your friends will enjoy the change of pace (from competitive circuit to pure fun). My suggestion... make a background story that explains where you are (planet, city, region, etc) and why this place is important (for the inhabitants... NOT the players). After you do that (2 or 3 paragraphs would do, but the more the better), let the players WRITE (yes, have them write it down) why THEIR Squads are there. Anything goes. You will see that each player will come up with a 'weird but cool excuse'... maybe the Ork Players decided that they are rivals and are trying to show who is Boss... while Chaos Player decided that they are sent to 'corrupt' the Orks, manipulating them in war so they can have a 'strong puppet' for something else... whatever! The result is that EACH player will feel that THEY are the center of the universe... that all this campaign is about them and everyone else is a supporting cast. Each player will be excited about what comes next and after every game THEIR story evolves! Have every player write a paragraph or two after each game on THEIR point of view... why they were on the mission and what happened. No need to make a play-by-play... just a story. At the end of the campaign, make a booklet with all the stories of each player as a 'chapter'. After everyone reads the short stories, you will find yourself organizing ANOTHER Death Squads Campaign!


PS: I have another request... could you please (PRETTY PLEASE!) help us gather some Squad Ratings Data? It would take less than one minute to calculate (before and after a game) and will help us IMMENSELY to fix the Squad Ratings and Underdog sections of TLRB. THANKS!
