Back to News Listing Sons of Cadia - A look at the campaign!

Type: News

Today we are showing you something of the new campaign coming with Sons of Cadia.

We picked 3 unique scenarios. We’re going to give you a sneak peek of what you can expect in those three scenarios, and how to best approach them. There are 6 more unique scenarios in the campaign, plus many more skirmish missions, all with a carry-over force with a special set of abilities to pick from when your units level up! Also, let's see if you can spot some yet unannounced new units...

 

 

THE RIVER RUNS RED

 

The Astra Militarum make their stand at the bridges Zeta Sec and Zeta Tert, their hope is to funnel the near endless Ork hoard into a choke point they can hold indefinitely. The people of Alaric Prime call it Boiling River for good reason, Sulfur deposits bubble up from the river bed, they make toxic fumes that can burn the skin off anyone foolish enough to go for a swim.

 

Location: The Boiling River

Objectives: Orks have teleported to the Imperial side of the river, clear them out then reinforce the defenders at the bridges. House Degallio has heard the call and makes all haste to Imperial lines. Push the Orks back to secure victory.

Tactical Tips: Flamers, Grenade Launchers and Artillery will serve you well in this battle. Take a few Heavy Weapons to defend the bridges also. Don’t hold back, if you see an opportunity to counter attack, do so. You’ll need to secure the VP’s.

 

 

THE RED WAAAGH! DESCENDS

 

A critical location has been overrun by the first Ork waves, they now assault the last fortifications in the area. Castellan Stein leads a mission to stop the ork advance and reclaim the area.

 

Location: The Helltor Valley

Objectives: Hold the last VP at all costs, counter attack or send out scouting forces to recapture the other VP’s.

Tactical Tips: Speed is key in this mission, leave behind a defensive force with Artillery, Stein, Heavy Weapons and some Bullgryn to hold the line, take your tanks and transports and try to capture the other VP’s for a quick victory.

 

 

FLIGHT OF THE MORKANAUTS

 

Mogrok has been building a new weapon, the mighty Morkanaut! He plans a devastating attack on the Imperial rear-echelon. His success here will determine if the WAAAGH! Will unite behind him after his betrayal of Warlord Grukk, if this happens then all hope of an Imperial victory will be lost.

 

Location: Subterranean Munitions Silo Gamma-Zero

Objectives: Hold the last VP at all costs. Imperial Knight reinforcements are on their way.

Tactical Tips: Layer your defences, take as many Heavy Weapons as you can, pull back forces that are injured, buy time for the Imperial Knights to take out the Morkanauts.

War in the Pacific AE Twitch with Giveaway

Friday, December 7, 2018

On December 7th 19141, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service launched "Operation AI", a pre-emptive strike against the US Pacific Fleet stationing at the Hawaiian base of Pearl Harbor. On that day - "the day of infamy" on Roosevelt words - the Japanese damaged seriously all the battleships and sunk some, almost a hundred of US aircraft got destroyed and more than two thousand men were killed. The Japanese thought to have put the United States off from the chance to interfere with the establishment of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. What they did, on the contrary, was to wake a sleeping bear. 

December 7th didn't mark the supremacy of the Japanese Empire, it marked the beginning of its end.

Thursday, December 6, 2018

1939. The sand is slipping fast through the hourglass and the clouds of war are gathering all around the globe. While in Europe Germany is ready to finally challenge the order established with the Versailles Treaty and Italy is eager to expand its colonial dominion, in the Far East the Empire of Japan – already embroiled in a bitter war against China – has already proved to be a formidable adversary and soon it will have to face the rising American hostility.

Can Germany, Italy and Japan triumph and construct their new world order, or will triumph turn to disaster as the rest of the world mobilizes to meet force with force?
