Week 1 campaign map

Brett managed to pick up the Spaceport hex for this week giving himself a bonus point and a handy lead. This campaign definitely rewards participation!

It looks like we’ll get a few more players next week as the games progress to 2500pts.

Brett* – Emperor’s Children

Week 2 Simon v Hutch 3

So after today’s games, the campaign map look likes this:

Week 2 campaign map

Brett has a handy lead.

Hutch managed to pick up the space port for this week giving him a bonus point. His game with Simon had some incredible (weird) dice rolls which made the game very interesting – a great way to start his Epic Armageddon gaming.

Jason was able to avenge his loss to Brett last week.

The campaign has had a slow beginning compared to previous years but I’m hopeful that it will pick up in the final 2 weeks as we head for the one day tournament (There is Only War – 2013).

June 16th – Week 3

Week 3 saw 7 players play 5 games.

Brett* – Emperor’s Children
Jason – Thousand Sons
Steve – Iron Warriors
Simon – Scions of Iron (Space Marines)
Joel* – Orks
Matt – Tau
Rick* – Space Marines

* New Epic Armageddon player

Matt v Jason – 2:1 win to Matt (Break Their Spirit, Take & Hold to Break Their Spirit)
Joel v Steve – 3:0 win to Joel (Blitz, Take & hold, Break Their Spirit)
Brett v Simon 2:0 win to Simon (Blitz, Take & Hold)
Matt v Brett – 1:0 win to Matt (Break Their Spirit)
Rick v Simon – 2:0 win to Simon (Break Their Spirit, Defend The Flag)

Joel (new player) and Steve played an introductory game which Joel won with ease!

So week 3 saw things heat up a bit as more players join in.

  • Joel loved his Ork air power and the titan killing power of Odd Boyz in Gunwagonz! He became only the 2nd player to destroy the Ordinatus Chaotica in my games so far.
  • In both games, Matt took an early beating and managed to claw back for wins.
  • It’s GREAT to see Brett’s Emperor’s Children being painted. They are going to be a fantastic looking army (with special mention of the excellent bases).
  • Simon’s dice were up and down during the day (as usual for Simon) but he managed to come away with 2 wins from 2 games.
  • Rick tried to break open a Space Marine castle set up, and found out it’s harder than it looks!

So with 1 week to go, the campaign map looks like this:

Week 3 campaign map

Next week is the final week of the campaign as we prepare for the one day tournament, There is Only War 2013.

 

June 23th – Week 4

Week 4 saw 5 players play 3 more games to finish the campaign.

Brett* – Emperor’s Children
Jason – Thousand Sons
Steve – Iron Warriors
Spiv* – Tyranids (EpicUK list)
Nick – Steel Legion Imperial Guard

* New Epic Armageddon player

Spiv v Nick – 1:1 draw (They Shall Not Pass to Break Their Spirit)
Jason v Steve – 1:0 to Steve (Break Their Spirit) Victory Point win to Jason)
Jason v Brett – 3:1 win to Jason (They Shall Not Pass, Defend The Flag, Take & Hold to Break Their Spirit)

In the final week, we decided to let the winner of each game capture a territory of their choice from the loser. We did this to make the end interesting.
Steve Managed to score the Spaceport for this week in the game with Jason. Jason won the game and of course, he chose the Spaceport hex to capture!
This jumped him into 2nd place.

Nick and Spiv played out a 1 all draw. It was a meat grinder with both armies taking bulk casualties. They both learnt a lot in preparation for next weeks tournament.

This meant the campaign came down to the game between Brett and Jason. Winner takes all!
Jason’s horde of Silver Towers and Greater Spires won the game and catapulted him to the top of the points table.
WELL DONE JASON!

Week 4 campaign map final

Week 4 jason is a winner

Jason has finally won an Epic Armageddon event!
He has been the runner-up so many times before that he thoroughly deserves the win.
Commiserations to Brett who has supported the campaign the most (MANY thanks Brett).

So the War Without End 2013 campaign draws to a close.

We had a total of 12 players play 15 games over 4 weeks.
6 of the players were new to the game (or returning to Epic after playing previous version many years ago).
Of those 6 players, 4 already have armies. Epic Armageddon is alive and well in Perth, Western Australia!

The break down of Victory Goals achieved:
Take & Hold – 11
Break Their Spirit – 10
Blitz – 10
Defend The Flag – 4
They Shall Not Pass – 4

A Big thanks to the TGA guys! You are the best and I REALLY appreciate all support.
To Brett, Hutch, Jason, Joel, Keith, Matt, Nick, Rick, Scott, Simon & Spiv – a BIG THUMBS UP from me and thanks for taking part!

 

War Without End will return in 2014.

Cheers,
Steve.
