An Introduction to Animosity… (playing in Mansfield @Slayer Gaming, East Midlands UK)

I won't win, but at least I'll look good losing.
- Sar Mikael, upon detatchment to the Emperor's Children


Victory and defeat are a matter of definition.
- from the Axioms of War, Tactica Imperialis


Look out for ewoks... they'll make a drum kit from your helmet before you know they taken your head off.
- from Inquisitor Pengadilan's personal notes, The Discordia Campaign


Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day.
- John Ottway, The Grey


Vade nutrientibus in gladium novacula - Go suck a chainsword.
- Roses and Boltshells



Animosity Events aim to bring together the Warhammer 40,000 gaming community for exciting, narrative based gaming events. The objectives of Animosity Events is to allow players to play in non-competitive story driven encounters, in which the power of the narrative is more important than the power of the army build. Gamers with all levels of experience are welcome to join us at the events, and we hope that all players that attend can enjoy the campaigns. Whilst there are obvious elements of winning and losing, we are not running tournaments, we hope that players will play the miniatures they want to use because they want to use them, not because they want to win. Some of our most memorable moments in war-gaming have been mid-annihilation, when a standalone hero dies hard and makes that game, the game in which we took a beating, more memorable than any of our victories. Sportsmanship is preferable to gamesmanship, and whether winning or losing please remember, even in defeat, at a narrative campaign your story is not over and from the jaws of defeat you can snatch the cake of victory!

The Venerable Dread aka geordie09 aka Scott


We're extending an invitation to gamers from across UK to join us for some action in the 41st Millenium (and earlier). The plan is simple. Hopefully we'll have 30+ people (the more the better) who would like to attend the campaign weekends with us. We hope to make the weekends something for gamers to remember, and enjoy (hopefully). What we don't want to do is host a tournament. So if you would like to attend please come with an open mind and bear in mind that your opponents want to have a good time at a narrative campaign. If they wanted to go to a tournament and play in uber-competitive mode, they would.

If you would like to attend the events feel free to email me at venerabledread@hotmail.co.uk

Important stuff... It will cost £20 each to attend. This covers the cost of the venue, a prize pot and the production costs for the campaign pack. Remember, there will be further details added in due course so keep an eye on this thread to find out more, or email me at venerabledread@hotmail.co.uk

See you at the gaming tables,

geordie09 aka Venerable Dread

UPDATE -

If anybodys out there...

We'll be running a campaign painting competition over the weekend, hopefully we'll be able to come up with a prize for the winner. It will be voted for by the attendees via ballot vote.

Don't worry, you don't need to paint your apocalypse force to mega standards to win, the competition will be judged using a single unit selected by you to represent your force. Any unit, will do as long as it is not a super heavy of any kind.

It's early days, but anybody who would like to attend just drop a message to the email above or leave a post.

Until the next update... see ya

- additional - The Campaign Pack has been updated for anybody who wishes to see it. It's available at the bottom of the opening post. Thanks to those who downloaded the first version, I hope the second provides more enlightenment.

UPDATE -

I am pleased to announce that Bitz Box have generously agreed to provide us with a prize for a Conversion Competition.

If you plan to attend please download the Campaign Pack at the bottom of the first post where you can find details to enter the competitions.

So far we have...

BITZ BOX Conversion Competition
ANIMOSITY Painting Competition

I hope to be able to establish one final competition for players to participate in during the weekend. December may seem like a long way away but genius take patience... or so I'm told!

Anybody who is blessed by the chaos gods will be able to take the Daemon Primarchs, Angron, Fulgrim, Magnus or Mortarion. You can use them in the Apocalypse game and find their rules at Tempus Fugitives...

Age of the Emperor Expansion, p 124. Check them out!

http://www.tempusfugitives.co.uk/downloads

They'll be 350 points each to field...

(They can be used because they still exist in 40k, other primarchs can not)

Hey, I've got a mate that wants to join in on this campaign. He's not registered on dakka so I said I'd vouch for him on here, is this ok? He said he'd like to bring a word bearers host to the assorted chaos fleet. So that'll be 3 for the fallen and only 2 loyalist. Anybody out there fancy joining in on this?

Yes!

Oh Lord. I am going to be diving back into the tabletop when 6th Edition launches this summer. I s'pose it would be OK for a relative 'rookie' to attend? I live literally 200 metres away from Maelstrom. The staff are a blast, the store is well-stocked and the gaming area//bar//restaurant is most wonderful!

If I do [and can] attend, I'll be attending with my Emperor's Children, Chaos aligned, Taskforce Renegade Blood. The only problem is that I wouldn't be able to field 5,000 points worth for the Apoc game on Sunday. Nor would either of my friends [whom may be able to attend with Renegade Chaos Militia] Is the 5k Apoc game mandatory?

Players who cannot field 5000 pts in the apocalypse game may choose to use the mercenaries available for the campaign weekend or use the apocalypse rules for additional strategies according to the deficiency. If you cannot field a minimum of 4000 pts on the day please let us know and we can make arrangements to make sure you still get involved without being outnumbered!


Nevermind, just found this passage in the campaign file.

Eirikr, I've added you to the Renegade Blood Task Force but if you would like to join the Perfect Host, which is Slaanesh (+ a bit Tzeentchy) specific that would be great, or you can stay where you are... not a problem.

I've played at Maelstrom and agree, its a great venue. Wish I lived within walking distance of anywhere with a gaming table...

As you found, the Apoc game is necessary but the points are variable. Anybody who can't field the necessary points will be aided by myself, the mercenaries availalbe on the day and the Apocalypse rule books strategy's which are designed for deficiences with points totals anyway.

I'm also thinking of permitting Chaos or Renegade forces to ally with Daemons for the purposes of the Apocalypse game in order to help people out...

Just drop another post if you have any questions or PM me. If your friend is available let me know as soon as and I'll add him too.

Thank you.

Having confirmed the details with Maelstrom this weekend I can now confirm the Campaign will cost £18 pound each to attend. The break down is as follows,

Saturday buffet £8
Sunday buffet £8
Prize Fund £2

I had thought there may be a nominal fee but the buffet price is per head. The additional £2 is to go towards the campaign competitions which are not already supported.

Bitz Box and Maelstrom are both offering prizes for the competitions which feature their names but the painting competition will be funded by the £2 that everybody pays in.

I've also decided that the Eldar and Dark Eldar should probably be in seperate Task Forces...

I hope this financial aspect does not deter potential participants, and as always, if you want to know anything, pm me or drop a post!

Hello Farseer. I've added your Craftworld to the Swift Blade Task Force. Hopefully you'll not be the only representative of the Eldar.

Thanks for climbing aboard, please spread the word and help the recruitment drive.

Don't forget to download the Campaign Pack available in the 1st post!

Hey dudes. If you've been included in a task force above but you haven't emailed venerabledread@hotmail.co.uk then if you could do that when you get a spare minute that would be helpful.

I'll be using the address to send messages that aren't relevant to the dakka thread and maybe some important info in the summer.

So if you can email me with your dakka name and confimration of you allegiance/race that would be sweet!

ta da for now

We are planning four games for day one. It may seem like alot but Maelstrom is open into the evening and the first game will be a short skirmish game. The second game will involve planetstrike, games three and four will use standard 40k rules one of which will encorporate a doubles game with a task force ally. Sunday will see the Apocalypse... whether this is an all in game, good vs not so good, or a number of task force apocalypse games running simultaneously will be arranged at a later date depending upon numbers.



Am I correct to assume that we will need to bring along copies of the various Apocalypse/Planetstrike/Imperial Armour books as needed. If so I will have to get myself some copies and have a good read, especially as I've never played planet strike before

Hey dude. Certainly for Planetstrike as whilst its not complicated it does have a lot of variations for game play. apocalypse has a number of strategy's and variations that you'd need familiartity with but Imperial Armour will only be required if you are using forces that are detailed within.

There is still a lot of time to go but a few practise games of planetstrike would probably help you to get to grips with the subtleties of attacking and defending!

The eye of terror

Well it's certainly interesting, bit of a drive at just under an hour and a half but still tempting, and it least it's through the pretty Peak District right! Would probably have missed the thread if it weren't for mentioning it on the Manchester one.

I'll have to keep an eye on it and see if I can finish a force before then, the plague tower already fills in a good 700 points so that's a start once it's done

I'll keep you up to date with PM's once I've got the new house sorted, if I do manage to pull it together might be able to get a tau slot if there's one left from the other half and an imperial guard from my mate in Lancaster if I can convince him! Mine will be chaos of some form, probably nurgle themed, or possible khorne depending on if the new chaos dex really does show up by then. Anyway I'll stop the wishlisting until I can give you a more solid conformation, unless people start stealing all the slots I want of course

Hello Ignatius. Yeah just drop me a PM with any queries or if you can confirm at a later date.

I've only allocated one Tau slot, with the Eldar, purely because it was the one faction I wasn't sure would get much love. Should that slot be taken before you can confirm I'll be able to create a Tau Task Force on that basis in which your other half can participate.

Just give me a shout when your in a position to book your spaces.

At the moment it is just a nominated role for each task force. In reality it is simply to make sure only one person from each task force approaches the desk when its time to call for mercenaries or reinforcements. Nothing stressful and nothing that will take anything from the weekends experience.
