Default Imperial Guard will Hold! [Campaign Organization]

+++Commencing Transmission+++
+++Decoding321+++


With the Golgothian Insurgency Campaign fast approaching it is the duty of every able bodied man and women within the sector to band together behind the emperor and fight of the good of mankind.

Already our Psykers have detected Tyranic warp influence suggesting that they are banding many fleets together to better co-ordinate there assaults. It is with this fear and the fear of failing the glorious emperor that we organise our own resistance and forces before we begin combat actions in order that we will do our duty much more effectively.

Hence this will be the place were we collaborate our ideas, plans and strategies. Additionally any thoughts, questions or comments pertaining to the Imperail Guard should be posted here.

Furthermore the Imperial High Commanders have a duty to us, their responsibilities are to help plan their faction's strategies, short term goals etc, and to help the Campaign committee develop the fluff for their Faction Heroes. Closer to the time more information will become available and with that, it will be their responsibility, along with that of local commanders, to develop the Faction Strategic and Tactical Outlays.

Currently our goals should be:
1) Get a positive team built of F.Commanders and Lts (also get the race players behind you on this)
2) Start talking to your race possible good army lists and strategies that could help your race take the win
3) Start thinking of how you are going to inspire your race to victory

The Commanders are as follows;
High Commander: AfterCresent
Commanding Lieutenants: beowulf, chevr鴑05, Cyreidel

Hey folks,

Tau Online is hosting it's first ever Tau Online campaign, which will run slightly similar to the Medusa campaign. We need to organize our forces. In this thread, post your Commanders Name, your Regiments name, and your own online name.

I will be organizing a group of regiments into task forces. Each task force will be assigned to attack and defend one objective/area/planet in this campaign. If we are having some problems in one area, we can always shuffle around the task forces from different areas to help bolster our defences.


High Militant:
Commander: AfterCresent



[Beowulf and the Altairan 1st]
Commanding:
[The Macedonian Corps. of the Penal Elite-dyk.themuffinman]
[63rd Amperian Armoured Division-MistahG]
[54th Mexican Militia-RicoLousianna]
[11th Munitian Siege Corps-chevr鴑05]
This concludes Task Force 1.


[Genmotty and the 1171st Reglanders]
Commanding:
[Colonel Ragnajack's 2nd Scout Force-Shas'o GeekyGator]
[39th Catachan Lost-FiremaN]
[121st Tauist Grenadiers and 33rd Treola Irregulars-balistafreak]
[Spartan 300th-Luy22]
This concludes Task Force 2.



[Trillian and the Trillian 5th Rifles]
[12th Panzegerwafferns-Sven-Kaiser of Krieg]
[Arleken 67th-Cyreidel]
[Pavonian 707th-Psyker11]
This concludes Task Force 3.

More task forces can be added as required.

If you need information on the campaign itself, don't hesitate to contact either Leestar, Farseer Emlyn of Farseer Tyross.

Also, please use this thread to discuss tactics for this campaign.

As to the regimental command system I quite like it, however I can see a problem with using it to have a big impact when needed because if players are working together in group then the trouble is that when we need to increase our percent victories on a planet then we can only chuck a team of players at the problem, doing that will leave a planet empty of IG forces unless we have more teams then there are players.

I would also like to ask peoples opinion on the 'flavour' of the guard forces in the Golgotha Subsector. Are they elitist? Are they well organised? is there a ton of red tape that the high officials pass round? These questions will become much more apparent later (campaign mechanics), however it would be nice to think of the strategic outlays that OUR guard forces are going to have.

We can always subdivide the groups of necessary, or make each task force smaller, but more numerous. Then we will have at a minimalistic force on one planet.
I've taken the hint that the Golgotha PDF are atrocious soldiers, while the neighbour planets and tithe planets are sending crack troops.

I'll start I suppose.


The Ellixian 127th will arrive at Golgotha under the command of;
Captain Martin Cassius

Requested for the training of Golgathan gaurd and PDF. The Altairan First was sent to Golgatha, however upon the discovery of the govenors alligiance they spread themselves out on the planet and making strikes with the intent to pathe the way for the invasion. They are also working on a way to steel a scout titan hiden deep within the hive, this will truely bring the hammer upon the enemies of the imperium.

The Altairan First is a heavy infantry regiment, who look highly upon the brave. Those who would steep to cowardes and alligiance will the emperors foes are beyond contempt.

Umm, well I don't know if my force is big enough to really participate (about 500 points irregular, 400 CP), but I may be able to play a couple Combat Patrol's. As a suggestion to you campaing folks, (Since I assume you get people to play games and then tally the results), you could have one person's combat patrol affect the points values or scenario of someone else's game. That way they could yell at me for loosing ;D.

Colonel Ragnajack's 2nd Scout Force, Reporting for duty.

That should be fine. In the beginning of the campaign the Altairan First will be striking in small resistance groups. Once we have secured a landing site then the true wieght of the guard can be brought to bear.
