Third Phase of the War of Beasts

Round Six - December 10 to December 23

Led by the Herald of the Apocalypse, Raptor warbands descend upon the upper echelons of the Vigilus hivesprawls and attack in the thousands. Entire aristocratic dynasties are eradicated overnight in a series of bloody assassinations.

Strike forces of Necropolis Hawks, Ravenwing and Ultramarines battle Chaos forces in the upper spires of every hivesprawl. Meanwhile, Ork hordes lay waste to city outskirts and Genestealer Cults continue to strike from the shadows. The fate of Vigilus hangs in the balance.

In this campaign round, the following special rules apply:
  • Bolstered Ranks: At the start of the battle, each player receives D3 extra Command Points. Roll separately for each player.
  • War of Attrition: All missions use the Sustained Assault rules (pg 129). In addition, the Sustained Assault rules apply to the Defender as if they were the Attacker, as well as to the Attacker as normal. If the mission does not specify, units must be set up wholly within 6" of one of the controlling player's battlefield edges.
  • Bonus Glory: Players earn 5 bonus Glory each time they participate in one of the following missions:
    • Carnage in the Spires (pg 152)
    • Hold Your Gains (pg 132)
    • Ambush! (Warhammer 40,000 rulebook)

Warp Tear

The quickest path to Vigilus is through the hole in reality known as the Warp Tear. Score victory in Chapter Approved (2018) Missions, optionally using Chapter Approved: Empyric Storms battlezone rules to move up the Warp Tear ladder.

With victory in the Warp Tear comes advantage in all theaters of war. If when starting any Vigilus mission, your rank on the Warp Tear ladder is greater than your opponent, you may designate an enemy unit. That unit is delayed by warp storms, and may not arrive on the battlefield before the second turn.

Sector Rules

The War on Vigilus draws the attention of the denizens of Baphomet Sector. Each week, we will see a new round in the War of Beasts, which will award bonus Glory if specific conditions are met.

While Vigilus occupies the center stage, Baphomet Sector is not at peace. War rages in the Warp Tear, as factions vie for control over the most direct conduit to Vigilus.

Reporting Glory Earned
  • After winning a battle, tag me and your opponent(s).
  • Report who won, how much glory each player earned, and how they earned it.
  • Your opponent(s) confirm your report.

Player Factions
  • At any point during the campaign, a player change the allegiance of their army.
  • If multiple players fight for the same allegiance, their earned glory will be combined in the Faction Glory category.
  • Glory points earned in a match against another player from the same allegiance are halved. Fight your enemies!

Climbing the Warp Tear Ladder
  • After winning a battle, tag me and your opponent(s), and report who won.
  • Your opponent(s) confirm your report.
  • If the winner of a battle is the lower of the two players on the ladder, they swap places with their opponent.
  • If the winner is higher up the ladder, they swap places with the player that is directly above them, unless they are at the very top, in which case the loser drops a rung on the ladder.
  • In the case of a tie, the players remain in their current positions.
