So had a few thoughts on this. With Mantic having released the Vanguard rules, which are linked to KOW as a skirmish level, I was considering linking the two together as a joint campaign. Each of the Vanguard scenarios have a hook to KOW so the results from the Vanguard game(s) have an impact on the bigger KOW engagement, all based in the same world.
The rough campaign narrative will be the forces of the Abyss (Evil factions) is launching a major attack on the good nations of Mantica (Good factions). Neutral factions linked to either to keep sides even. Each Army is moving to group together to confront the other. As they move small ‘black ops forces’ move ahead completing certain missions relevant to the bigger picture. The results of these ops impacts on the larger forces as they move forward.
The idea would be to play a 1 or 2 club evenings doing Vanguard scenarios, followed by bigger engagements the next campaign day using KOW with 3 or 4 separate battles, dependant on numbers of players. The results of these battles then inform the overall picture and we then run another 1 or 2 vanguard nights, access the results and have a further round of KOW. When the campaign has reached a point the overall results lead to a major all day KOW battle on a Sunday. Looking to start in summer so plenty of time for people to practice the rulesets. Vanguard requires about 10 to 20 miniatures from the KOW factions, and battles last just over an hour. Any thoughts or interest?

Hi Gary,

I'm interested in joining in. In WFB terms, I can muster Orcs/Goblins, Elves, Chaos (Varangur), and Bretonnians (Brotherhood?). Some work is needed to get them all based up.

I don't have the Vanguard rule book (yet), so will the free-to-download rules from Mantic's website be sufficient?

I'm willing to loan an army to interested players.

Colin the free rules download will be fine as it looks like a direct copy. The army lists for all the KOW related factions are also a free download. This is a link;
