News From The Front!
« on: June 29, 2007, 08:59:56 PM »
Gentlemen, I apologize for interupting regular forum shenanigans.

We of the Empire are presently at the top position in the Nemesis Crown Summer Campaign.  Our rivalry with the Dwarfs is heavy, as they maintain a steady chase from Second Place.  Our mighty and noble Bretonnian allies bring great victories and are presently in Third.  We are surprisingly challenged by the Dark Elves, who have taken advantage of the War to raid us when we are vulnerable!  The Mighty Ogres to are laying waste to their foes.  There is even a cheating Chaos player in the US Region who we are presently ahead of.  :biggriin:

Death to the Chaos Elves!

In case you are curious about the campaign or even wish to join us, here is a post that contains a great summary.  It was written by a rather handsome devil.  :icon_wink:

Just a question out of curiosity,

The current score, is that what you can read from the "rating / battles" panel?

Actually, the amount of Scrabble boxes you would need to buy to obtain enough Q's to meet minimum unit size would roughly correlate to GW's prices…

The scoring system is a bit confusing,  I'm just looking at the daily weekly/results.

We are presently about fourth now!  Vile Chaos Elves have begun routing our coastal positions!  Hard-fought Dwarfs are #1 and the grand Bretonnians are ahead of us at number 3.  Glory to The Lady!

Just remember, the only way to not support The Empire's defense during the Campaign is to not post battles.  Wins, losses and draws all help us out!

I think it's really cool that it's now useful to post a loss, it helps to make the whole campaign more about playing and having a good time then about winning.

Today is also the first official GW Megabattle - "Defend The Headless Badger"!  Those lucky chaps attending can use all the blessings we can muster, the Headless Badger Inn is an important part of our regional strategy!  Helstrom's 4th will win the day, and the peoples of Bretonnia shall find many new heroes to praise - Knight and commonman alike!

Go get 'em boys!  For The Lady and for Sigmar!

Good. Me too.

Right now, the daily results don't look too bright for the glorious Empire, but fortunately the weekly ones are much better. The dawi, however, are masters of all.

Well, their center of gravity is different.  :happy:

So, interestingly enough, did you know the highest ranked General right now is an Empire player?  His seems to be real unlike some of the other top "competitors".

Huzzah to him!

An imperial general at the top of the list? That's excellent (although a dwarf would have been better :icon_wink:).

I unfortunately can't access the leader board, since I'm not registered. I lack both a painted army and time to play  :icon_confused:

The time to play is the biggest part, everything else doesn't matter so much. :wink:  Even if your usual group doesn't play, you still can!  All that matters is that you have a registration number, and you can post your battles against an unregistered opponent.  Every battle helps out, and your fluff contributions are what matter most!
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.

finding photographic evidense that Wiss smiles is going to be hard...
