Vigilus Crusade round 1

The club's Vigilus narrative kicks off this week with round 1 running from January 7th to February 4th. This is definitely going to be a long running campaign.

In round 1, the mighty Ork forces make planetfall on Vigilus and immediately begin to assault the nearest hive cities. The Imperial defenders fall to political infighting in their futile attempts to organize a hasty defence.

The special rules for this round are that ORKS get an extra inch movement when advancing and charging. IMPERIUM units get an extra point of leadership. On the downside any IMPERIUM armies that include elements of the ADEPTUS SORORITAS, ASTRA MILITARUM and/or ADEPTUS MECHANICUS lose a command point.

So thankfully nothing there affects my little Genestealer Cult yet but there are a few Ork and Imperium players who are going to be taking notice of that special rule. At least one Imperial player is going to be combining some armies but I guess they don't see it as too much of a problem.

This is going to be interesting. We have several club matches already planned for the month. I have a feeling that the Imperium are going to be mounting a solid defence to start with.
