40k: The Sakar Campaign – Introduction
So Bull and I are on the verge of starting up 40k again and this is the background to our upcoming run of games. The first game is less than two weeks away so the preparation and banter will start gearing up from here on in.
The Sakar system is no stranger to conflict. Such a rich source of minerals has been coveted by many a race and as such the system has changed hands many times over the centuries. Currently, Sakar Prime is in the firm grasp of the Iron Warriors. They have fortified the planet in their traditional manner to prevent any potential usurper getting a foothold. The system is on lockdown and the Iron Warriors have the means to defend it. It all seems a little heavy-handed for a legion that cares little for minerals – is something more sinister going on?
However, the Iron Warriors fight their battles on many fronts. Sakar Prime was seen to be impenetrable and consequently the legions of chaos space marines stationed there have slowly been leeched away to fight elsewhere. This has not gone unnoticed and the time has come for a rather wily Ork Warboss to make his move. The identity of this wannabe has not yet surfaced, but with Ork forces massing nearby all will be revealed very soon.
