Final Thoughts on the Campaign by Patrick Eibel
He's just happy it's over....For me, this particular campaign was not as much fun as some others because of the isolated nature of the games. While we intended to have some diverse armies represented in each battle, these different armies made it hard to create much of a narrative feel to the campaign as compared to others we’ve done. Also, playing only three games was just too brief. While we were constrained by GW's timeframe for the global campaign, having only three battles made that much harder to get into the flow of the campaign.

I thought the scenario selection was pretty interesting for this campaign. I liked including some of the more unusual missions to provide some interest to readers familiar with our armies. Missions like “Tomb Raid” and “Endgame” are fun to do in campaign like this, but are much too esoteric to be used on a regular basis.

So, that should do it for this year. Next year will bring a new campaign, I'm sure, and I have already dubbed 2004 as “The Year of the Ork,” as I will be working heavily on my Ork army.

Final Thoughts on the Campaign by Kenton Kilgore
You won: smile, dammit!I think I enjoyed this campaign more than Pat did, but not just because I won. Coming right on the heels of Tooth and Claw, it was a nice change (for me) to play a short series of games where I could try out new armies. Though I got my butt kicked in the first battle, I liked playing the Orks, and maybe someday I’ll have my own Ork army (though probably using the Themed Army Idea for the Kurindans). Building the Ulthwe Strike Force and the combined Forces of Disorder was fun and playing them was challenging.  

I agree with Pat that from a narrative standpoint, this campaign lacked the depth of Tooth and Claw. Then again, the focus of this campaign was not storytelling, but experimenting with new armies and new scenarios. After T&C, I needed a break from writing fictionalized battle reports. I threw in some “literary” tidbits here and there, but mostly I just reported the facts. In writing batreps, one always struggles with telling a good tale and making sure the reader understands what is happening. Hopefully, I didn’t bore anyone with the level of detail I provided.

Now that EoT: From the Jungle to the Gate is over, I’ll finally get around to writing articles I’ve been meaning to post for a long time (you can get a glimpse of what’s coming here). Right now, I’m pretty burnt out on campaigns; for a while, at least, I’d prefer to do one-off battles here and there with Pat. I have several ideas on those, and hopefully we can get them to you soon. 

Just as Pat will be re-dedicating himself to his Orks, I will be expanding my main army. 2004 will be “The Year of the Fighting Tiger Recruitment Drive.” Specifically, I’ll be adding heaps of Scouts to replace those Marines lost in the Blood Deserts of Auros IX. First however, I plan to add one more unit to my Ozone Scorpions and work on some terrain.
