Default Re: Your opion on this campaign(Be nice)

I don't like campaigns where one side has won before it starts. If the Tyranids get their arses kicked, the world is saved. End of.

"Eaten by Tyranids" is an ending that should be reserved only if the Tyranids do well.

I would do it this way:

1) Play through a series of missions focusing on the Imperium-Tyranid war, with "random addons." Assign bonuses / penalties based on how the side did in the last game (ie: if the Imperium won "Defend the Basilisks!" they get artillery support in the next game.)
2) Pick a point toward the end of the game as a branch point - this is a pivotal battle. If the Imperium wins, the Hive Fleet is vanquished. If the Tyranids win, the Planet is lost.
3a) IMPERIAL VICTORY BRANCH: The final missions focus on whether the Imperium can trounce all before them, or are left with a bloody, pyrric victory.
3b) TYRANID VICTORY BRANCH: The final missions focus on attempts to evacuate the planet, recover relics or just selling the lives of the survivors as dearly as possible. The Tyranids may be left a planet rich in biomass, or a dessicated husk, virus-bombed in spite by the retreating Imperium.
