Evidently, I'm not allowed to be mopey and take a blog vacation. My wife asked me today if I was updating my blog every day. I said... um, no... Wednesday didn't get a post. That was the wrong answer. So, now I have to write something.
I'm going to write about this cool Hinterlands Campaign thing I ran across on DakkaDakka. It's another take on the war bands campaign thing.
Here's the link... http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/706704.page
The guy did an amazing job, Looks like it's still a work in progress, but it's fleshed out enough to use now. I think I might try to talk my friends into giving it a try. I really like how the missions involve running around trying to get treasure and experience. I like that there is an option to just run away so your models don't die. Any model that dies during a given mission has to roll on a critical wound table at the end. On a 1, the model is slain permanently and removed from the battle field. I like that there's a mechanism for killing models and limiting the growth of the war band.
I'd definitely recommend giving it a read. The production value, if nothing else, is insane.
