As the campaign for Vastum continues to grind on, more Imperial reinforcements have arrived planetside. Among these are the Adeptus Astartes, and they have breathed new aggression into a once fearful Imperial military.
The first agenda of these elite forces has been to strike out against the command and control structure arrayed against the defenders. Joining them have been the more emboldened defenders, turning their limited offensives into powerful thrusts against the headquarters units of their enemies. Though vastly outnumbered overall, the Imperials have dominance in numbers and war materiel over any other faction. They are looking to use this fact to their advantage, as they seek the generals and warlords that have dared to set foot upon their world.
We encourage all of you to post battle reports to our Facebook Page!
Below are links to a few battle reports from two of World War 40k's Sponsors - Dicehead Games and Enter the Maelstrom.
Many of Vastum’s cities are shrines, glorifying saints who have impacted the wider Imperium. The citizens who live here are proud of their Imperial heritage, and it makes them strong. The invaders seek to damage that morale, bringing the Imperium one step closer to crumbling.
Corrett is the largest landmass on Vastum, with the spire of Hermann von Schwikk at its heart. The city is built into a depression in the landscape, and there are several high points that surround it. Valued for their strategically important point of view, they have become the sight of many bitter struggles as the war grinds on. None of these sights, however, have proven quite so murderous as that of the ravine, and the bloody ridge that lies above it…
NEW MISSION RELEASE SCHEDULE and FAQ

The Campaign will be ran in "Chapters"
We will release New Missions into the Current Chapter every few days and sometimes we may release two or three at once.
The first week of every month, the current Chapter will come to an end, its Missions removed, and a new Chapter and set of Missions that are created based from the results of the previous Chapter of the Campaign will begin.
Again, any of the Missions on this page may be played during the time they are posted.
In general, all of the missions are battles that do not affect each other but all of the current mission results will tally into a collective pool that will shape the next Chapters Missions.
With the coming of the Cicatrix Maledictum, the forces of Chaos have spilled forth into the galaxy with ravenous fury. In some instances, the Imperium has managed to push back against this tide of infinite madness. In most, they are struggling just to hold on.
The planet Vastum is one such area. This system has been a thriving stronghold of the Imperium for centuries, providing war materiel and natural resources for the war effort in less fortunate parts of the galaxy. Still, the planet has provided for its own defense. Strongholds and fortified cities dot its landscape. A strong contingent of the Adeptus Mechanicus calls the world home, and a lesser household of Imperial Knights make their home in the Glara Spartha, a range of mountains in the cold reaches of the northernmost continent. Imperial Guard regiments regularly train here to prepare for cold weather environments, and the local PDF forces keep law and order amongst the populace. Despite their grueling work schedules, the citizens of Vastum are actually well-off by Imperial standards, living in spacious conditions across a series of open-air shrine cities.
Several neighboring systems have been completely ravaged by the Cicatrix Maledictum. Though Vastum as a whole hasn’t felt the predations of the Warp, they are close enough to be caught in the aftershock. Mortal followers of the Dark Gods have descended on the world, seeking to expand their hold into one more Imperial system. This could not have come at a worse time for the beleaguered planet, for a minor Ork Waaagh! has also found its way into the system. Myriad other races have made their presence known as well, vying to destroy or enslave the people and the resources of Vastum.
The Imperial Governor, Hermann von Schwikk, has issued a general call for aid from the wider Imperium. In the meantime, the forces under his command have entrenched themselves and started to shore up their already considerable presence. The Imperials cannot know how deep the enemy forces run, but they will defend their world to the last, in an attempt to keep pure that which has yet to be infected by the touch of the Warp.
