I wont be ready for the 20th - sorry.

I did start to think about my fluff this weekend. My warband has raised a city and one of the city watch men has followed my grim trail of blood south. The watcher is a pretty weak fighter and is using his cultural talents to survive and pass on information to help save other human cities. 

Painting is going well but I hit a snag. I need to work out a good gold painting recipe in order to complete my mounted troops. Hoepfully this weekend I should be closer .... buit im loving the campaign already :)

Does that mean Juck or Cadan could be able to do the 20th?

Why not do 3 games of 4 people?

First game of 4 on the 20th.  Then 2 games of 4 players at same time on 27th?

Kev, was trying to make it simpler for working out who gets what starting area in the campaign, 2x6 means i have only two 1st places, 2 second places etc rather than three of each, but it may come to 3x4!

As for the fluff etc, was going to collect it from everybody on the first game night so 20th or 27th depending on what night you play.

Have we got a method to publish our writing & photos, or are you going to collate it all Al?

i'll collate it all, it'll be easier, just need to get everyone's fluff and photos together. it might be easier for you all to email me with them. my email is izeman82@sky.com (title it "Proving Grounds Month 1"). Try and keep it like the Black Sun Blogs in order ie fluff, army list and goal for that month/how your game went! (http://theblacksunpodcast.tumblr.com/).

Starting our own one over the weekend. more details to follow...

The first entry to the blog is looking good Alan.

See you tonight, I'll bring my camera and we can attempt to do a battle report.

Would you be able to bring those gyrocopter parts tonight?

Do you want anything in exchange for them?

 

Thanks for running the campaign, I didn't think it was possible but I love you even more for it.

Will see you tonight, and trying out a battle report will be cool, was gonna ask/try anyway. As for the gyro bits, I will dig them out when I get in, and as for exchange, only your undying devotion and love! Or maybe a coke as I already have the first bit!

I assume the artwork is, found it randomly on the Internet. All, people's fluff etc, needs to be with me by next week, so you've got time Juck!

Right, last night the first of the T&T games took place for the campaign. Now to look forward to next Tuesday. We have had one person drop out because they can't be bothered but luckily had a last minute replacement so Oron with his empire has replaced Zak and his ogres. So next week there will be 2 further T&T games, game 1 will have: Gary's Dark Elves, Juck's Warrior's of Chaos, Julian's Orcs & Goblins and Oron's Empire. Game 2 will have: Kevan's Bretonnians, Jamie's Vampire Counts, Cadian's Chaos Dwarves and John's Skaven.

The "kingdoms" on the campaign map will be picked in order of those who have earned the most coins in the games. Last night, the game winner had 700points with of coins, so you have your work cut out for you. I won't say who won yet, as I am currently writing up,the battle report for the game, and therefore don't want to spoil that!

Can all those who have yet to play, please contact me to make sure you are still playing, (this is in case we get more drop outs, it will affect the games on Tuesday ie may end up as either 1x4 and 1x3 or 1x6 etc depending on drop outs.) if I haven't heard by Sunday at the latest, I will assume you aren't playing, are dead or just don't care, either way we will carry on the campaign without you, so please contact me ASAP!!
