Pawn of Chaos

1
Warrington Warlords
Pawn of Chaos
Campaign

2
Scenario
Imperial Guard stationed on the Forge World Barbarus have come under attack from
Waaagh! Bashgob. Adeptus Astartes of the Blood Angels 3rd Company receive a distress
signal and Captain Machiavi has directed his Strike Cruiser, the Blood of Vengeance, to
the system.

3
During warp transit the Astartes receive word from Inquisitor Nazereth of the Ordo
Hereticus of possible chaos infiltration in the Governing body of Barbarus which has
been manifesting as cultist like behaviour. This infestation has spread to the ranks of the
planetary troops also. They are warned that the garrissoned Guard regiment, the Bathos
9th will be expecting them and to purge the heretics with righteous fury and extreme
prejudice along with halting Warboss Bashgob before he ruins the planet. Barbarus is a
valuable and productive world for the Imperium and as such, Exterminatus is not an
option. Machiavi has a difficult task ahead of him, but nothing can stand before his
Angels of Death.

Inquisitor Nazareth does, in fact, show fealty to a new master, the Changer of the Ways.
and is attempting to turn Imperial Forces against themselves for the favour of Tzeentch.
He is stationed with the Guard regiment on Barbarus and has warned the Planetary
Governor, Lord Eisenbach, of the impending assault by traitor marines, marauding as the
Emperor's Finest. The Guard have been instructed to attack any Astartes that make
planetfall (most of the Regiment has never even seen a Space Marine, let alone recognise
individual chapters). The commander of the Guard forces on Barbarus, (..........), is
currently replenishing his forces after a recent conflict in the Xanthus sector against the
vile Tyranids. A few greenskins won't be a problem, and he is looking forward to
showing the traitor marines what it is like to face the Hammer of the Emperor. Vehicle
production has begun..........it is just a matter of time to see if the Shadowsword is
finished in time to lay waste to the enemy.

5
The Farseers of Biel Tan have had warning of this impending conflict for some time and
have manouvered the Craftworld into a nearby sector. Barbarus is home to an ancient
Eldar relic, a Tomb of Khane, previously lost but rediscovered by the Craftworld's
Rangers. The planet is also close to an important Webway gate. It cannot be allowed to
fall into the hands of the greenskins, though they may prove useful in diverting the
attention of the Imperial Forces whilst the Eldar achieve their objective.

Farseer Kalhadra has accompanied an Eldar Strike Force on the Void Stalker "Hammer
of Vaul" and is enroute to Barbarus. The hated greenskins have already destroyed the
majoirty of Orbital defence platforms with their unsightly, but surprisingly deadly
spacecraft, and are making their way to the surface.............

6
Warboss Bashgob has set up camp outside Primaris Forge. He told da Meks ta build 'im a
big Stompa an is lookin' forward to krumpin' an smashin' da oomies wiv it. That
Wazgrub's Stompa wussn't shooty or stompy enough (his skull now hangs from
Bashgob's belt) so da Meks know ow much Dakka has to be on dis new wun.......

7
The idea is that all 4 can fight each other, reasons given above. In the BIG game/games
the Eldar can aid the Orks, the Imperial together. This can be at a stage when the
Inquisitor is found out to be a pawn of Chaos, and the Imperial Commander and Captain
Machiavi combine forces to protect Barbarus.

FORCES
Each team member is allocated 3000 points to spend using the force organization chart

Forces for each battle will then be taken from this pool of resources.

No named characters are allowed, as we will be creating our own commanders and
retinue who will advance during the campaign. (See Commander rules below).

ADVANCEMENT

COMMANDERS
At the beginning of the campaign, each player should choose a single character that will
serve as the army's general for the duration of the campaign. Each character should be
given a name. Commanders may not be vehicles, though they may be mounted on bikes
or cavalry.

the character and any equipment that he has, plus the total number of Experience points
spent.

The commander gains 1 Experience point in each game he participates in that he does not
die or flees off of the table. During each game, the commander can earn 1 additional
