Thanks for info on TK MiB, are you keeping an eye out on them?

Yep, I'm hoping to field them myself so I'm trying to encourage them to do something ;)

As well as Empire or instead of, if it is as well I trust you will be a good double agent, if it is instead I hope you will lose honorably.

Ok following on from Wissenlanders great work in the US lets figure out who is going for which location in turn 1. This is to ensure we are able to hold Egondorf and the Bitter Moon as well as have a presence around the Tower of Vigilance. I will start by assuming that everyone is in Egondorf, let me know if you wish that to be changed.

Egondorf

Veldemere- Graf Veldemere
Clauswitz
Jacob Marley - Guvnor
BingoBongoEmpire
Sharpe
Master Boris Hertwig - Ostermark
Markus von Kluge - Narses101
Captain Karl Vontra - phil1103
Alberich Von Ludenhoff
GrandMaster Leon von  Eberhardt Morden
Commander Jakob Storscham Barracuda101
General Wilhelm Henrich Romanov General Romanov
Grand Master Sanjiven Singh Aujla Helborg
Margrave Mattayus Luddensburg Hendrid
General Martin Keats Douchie
Baron Reinhardt von Schadelandoese - Sircyn
Richter Eisenburg Solkan
Klaus Von Helling No 17
bobby bob nooobie 69
Captain Karl von Drak- Karl von Drak
Spiney
Nosramuk
Marshall Gerhardt

The Bitter Moon

Tostig- Rupert Ironside
HeraldOfTheFree

The Tower of Vigilance

Mark Perry
Hans Von Wynter Patch


It is assumed that each of these forces will not just be garrisoned but also patrolloing the vicinity, so those of you who have mainly cavalry armies which are not given to defending don't let it bother you.

I will edit this whenever I get a response either on this thread or pref by PM so we don't clog it up.

I don't know how inter region coordination works, probably won't really, but...

Our main objectives are in the south, the fort and the town of our region.  That's basically the opposite side of the river from where the Bitter Moon and Egondorf are.  Don't know if it work, but we could get some fluff coordination potentially on communication back and forth.  Just an idea.

This is for Veldemere. Can I get a report on what this Region is planning, your own personal schemeings and thoughts, and anything you need done in/for this thread?

Thanks

Wissenlander (along with others on the Warvault) is trying to name the unnamed places on the NC map.

In the Barren Hills there are only two unnamed places.

A skaven lair, which we probably don't need to name.

And the ruined fort in the north east.

Would anyone care to suggest a name for this to help Wissenlander?

True, although it doesn't exactly correspond to any of the given symbols. I think it resembles a motte (as in motte and bailey). A fort of watch-tower perhaps? I might have to model it  :biggriin:

Since there have been suggestions so far I decided to do a little research to see if I could come up with a decent name myself.

So I went on to wikipedia and did a search for "German medieval fort castle".  The top result was something that surprised me and seemed to be something of an omen..

Schloss Sigmaringen

Here is the link..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Sigmaringen

In English it would be Sigmaringen Castle.

What do you think?

Nosramuk, you make some good points particularly with regards to the size of our footprint. Please bear in mind there are probably about twice as many people reading the forum as there are posting on it so that may increase our numbers slightly

Your very welcome. Yeh, wise words about more people reading than posting. I think it would be good to have a locked topic each weak saying where to attack, this way the people who arent members can join in with us.

In week1 ill probably fight most of my battles around Egondorf. But theres 1 skirmish i really want to play and thats the defend the inn one, should be good fun, and obviously the results will be posted up as a win/loss at the bittermoon inn.

Great to have both of you on board, Nosramuk and HeraldOfTheFree, keep up the good work, and please do keep questioning anything you think may not be right, it open up the discussion and flow of opinions.

Thanks man, its great to be here  :biggriin: You and the other high ups have made this a good thread, and I think this campaign is gonna be alot of fun.

I wont be able to post much in the forum over the coming few weeks, probably around 1/2 times a week. But ill get all my battles registered. And will keep a tally here so people can see how Im doing.

Think im going to get some fluff on the go and try to link my battles together.Should be good.

So basically, I think the two main points for week one were "post results at Egondorf" and put "Helstroms 4th" in my army name.

Your welcome Mr Perry, Ive tried writing and know how hard it is, some people have a knack for it, others dont. You seem to have that "knack" and i hope u stick with it  :-)


One last thing, is there any fluff behind the naming "Helstroms 4th"?

Thanks all.

Any UK generals wishing to help the Druchii with their fluff (or indeed set up a sworn enemy) check out the Fluff exchange thread, this may be of particular interest to Stirland generals!

Nope, just kicks me back to the main page.  I read a couple places that said they moved it to the 27th.  Does anyone have a link for that?

I'm registered, but you guys might have a problem with that Helstrom's 4th thing, theres a character limit for general's name.

Also, I there is a limit on your army name.  I think it's a 30 character limit.  I'm working on some ideas.  At the moment I've got Wissenland EF - Helstrom's 4th.  The EF stands for Expeditionary Force.  I'm willing to sacrifice my army name to get Helstrom's in there.  So if you can come up with maybe a nickname or something for your army, it should work out.

Yes, the character limit is a little annoying.  Some improvisation will be required.

Anyway I have signed up.
