Here is the thread Sweeney. Working on army list at the moment.

Should I just post a map, or should we do some weird stuff like rolling for terrain, and/or take turns to place some terrain.

A question on Hellcannon, does it have magical attacks in close combat. ???

What Johnny said.

And I guess you should do up a map if that's fine by you. I'm not a fan of mysterious terrain though.

Working Night shifts this weekend, might first have the head to make a map monday, after I have rested. But will see if I get around to it sooner. Have a rather weird day cycle when I do night shifts.

Map I came up with, will not claim to be an expert map maker, so any feedback is welcome.

As per your request, ordinary forests apart from two of them being circular.
Thinking the dark green stuff being a hotspring marsh, just meaning it is a marsh that haven't frozen over in the winter landscape.
Two ordinary roundish hills.
A wall obstacle.
Not sure about the chaos altar. Was thinking impassable ground, doesn't really block line of sight. Maybe provide soft cover to units shooting over it on other units where they are both at ground level. Maybe hard cover, if the target unit is adjacent to the structure.

Its fine. Would wish the mission was not won or lost by the fact who have control, but it just gave a nice large bonus amount of VP.

Rolling for control of the tower.

BTW, we obviously need a watchtower smack in the middle for this mission. Do you want to edit the map a little?

Took another no scenery blood altar, tell me if you prefer one of the towers instead.
Im thinking 3 levels high, contact is made when in contact with the walls, not what we could call the doorsteps. What do you think.

On the bloodaltar on the side, we need to agree if its only the altar that is impassable or the whole base thing. ???

Have placed my forest, the south part of the battlefield. You have to decide if your going to place your 20 marauders in the tower.

Im not sure if your Chaos characters can do something the rest of the worlds of heroes can not.

Your lord have Helm of many eyes and Favour of the gods both are enchanted items.
Your Disc riding hero, Collar of Khorne and Golden eye of Tzeentch both Talismans.

For some reason I always make that mistake with my WoC characters. Army list edited.

I'm fine with those conventions, though I'd suggest putting a bit of distance between the watchtower and the altar.

Im not sure if you are to place a unit first, or if its only if you wan't to place a unit in the tower.
But who ever of us that place units first can just move the altar. We still need to decide if the altar is impassable on the whole scenery base, or just where the stone altar is.

Fair enough. And no, I don't want to start in the watchtower.

EDIT: I think the altar should be impassable only where the altar is.

So who is first to place a unit, now that you don't want to place one in the tower. The rulebook doesn't seem to explain that so well, at least not with my understanding of english.???

The player who doesn't control the watchtower would start deploying first. In other words, you would get the first drop.
