Prima Artania 40K Campaign - WAR DIARY

My long time wargaming friend Jussi suggested, that we could organise a fluffy (not HC competitive min max), map based campaign, I was all in and helped him to draft the Campaign doc. Then it took some promotion to get enough players to join in, but eventually we had 8 players, including my oldest wargaming buddy Pave, joining, whom all seem to have same expectation more or less: narrative, fluffy armies and relaxed gaming! And now there is only war!

As part of the campaign concept we will track heroic deeds of units in our armies; when they claim victory points in battles they earn Veteran Points they can use to buy upgrades. I’m using this blog page to track the deeds and VPs of my units.
