Shaking up 40k

Most Sundays, I get together with a bunch of other guys at the local university for some 40k. Lots of funis the usual prognosis, but we’ve lately been feeling like things have been getting a wee bit stale. Most of us only have one army (and the guys with more than one usually prefer one by a wide margin), which means we end up fighting some of the same battles over and over again. And since one of our tau players insists on bringing three riptides to every single big point game, it’s gotten even worse; space marine armies are mostly terminators and lascannons, eldar are all wraithblanks, you get the picture.
So we’re building an escalation campaign, with bonuses over time to surviving units, strategic assets as objectives that will eventually grant bonuses themselves, and semi randomized matchups as we secretly declare our intended targets and then reveal them to find out who will be fighting on which planets. Everybody has a 3000pt, 2FOC army pool from which all of their lists must be drawn, and I think this is going to be super fantastic. I think we’re starting tomorrow.
And after this campaign? I’m hoping for cities of death next.
