I'm returning to AoS after some time thanks to the battleforce boxes and I was wondering if the Firestorm campaign was any good, and whether it would work with just two players? Found some reviews of when it first came out, but I'd like to hear what hindsight has to say about it.

Its fun but has a very large design flaw in it in that the way they have scoring set up, you will only ever fight on the prime territories pretty much always.

There is no reason to fight on any of the other territories short of you want to.

My group just finished this up last month with a modified ruleset.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

Our group did this earlier this year.

Its fun but pretty imbalanced over all. A good jumping off point to do a campaign, learn from it, then write your own rules up.

1. If you get the scepter thing you auto win. That's stupid in every campaign system, so we tossed that out

2. The points you can get vary. So much so we had many games where one player has say 1300 while another has 2000. Players can stack muster points so its hard to prevent.

What we did is escalate it. Month 1 40 points per muster point. Month 2 60 points per, Month 3 80 points per, then final month 100 (normal) points per.

I liked it and we learned what not we didn't like and working on our own now for the new year
