Tigrura Prime Campaign Event Practice Run Completed

It was a long day, but we were able to get 3 games in, with after action activities in less than 7 hours. That didn’t include setting up or tearing down the table. We shaved time by leaving the table terrain in tact with slight adjustments based on the deployment zone locations. There were some deficiencies that came on with some one of the old Kill Team missions that I converted that I will have to address before the event.

All in all, I think that this short Campaign will work as an event at the local game store, D6.

Tigrura Prime Campaign Event Practice Run

This week we are doing a practice run of the an event that I am planning to run this Winter or Spring (COVID depending) at D6. This will be another attempt to get the Noctilith Crusade jump started. We will be using the Campaign framework from the War Zone Octarius: Rising Tide book. Since the intent is once again to introduce folks to the Crusade framework in the 9th edition rule book, I decided to keep to the Basic Rule Book’s Crusade Mission Pack and filled in with some custom missions that I converted from Kill Team.

I think that it has a nice flow to the tree. Start with the easy Sweep and Clear mission. If the non-Imperium Attackers team wins, we move to the Supply Drop mission where the Attackers will be sitting up a home base. If the Defenders win we will do the custom mission Recover Intelligence where a Rogue Trader ship has crashed and both sides will want to recover any intelligence that may be on the ship.

The Argovon Crusade Event

I ran an unsuccessful Narrative Crusade event last weekend using the first three Combat Patrol missions. I set up narrative boards for the three missions. I put two Kill Team boards together for the Mission 1 – Sweep and Clear using the sector imperialis sides; Mission 2 – Supply Drop using the ruin sector mechanicus from the 9th edition launch and starter; and Mission 3 – Assassinate taping off a section of a large mat.

The Argovon System is in the Pariah Nexus so technically it is part of the Noctilith Crusade. Only Charlie and I showed up, we played Sweep and Clear. I lost 40 – 25, but managed to take out his Daemon Prince and two squads of Plague Marines, leaving him with only his Pox Walkers. We both made some mistakes early on. I only lost my Bullgryn, mostly because I got stupid and left them out to be shot and then charged the two remaining in the Plague Marines. My Taurox Prime with the missile Hot Shot Volley Cannon load out, combined with Vengeance for Cadia did some serious work.
