Battle Group Campaign Log

So I'm stealing yet another idea from Col. Scipio (The Palladian Guard), but this time it's going to a modified version of it. I've been working on a Campaign Log for my armies.  It's been a work/idea in progress for quite some time now, and I think I'm ready to show it to the "world" and get some outside input.  In other words comments and criticism is welcome, if you don't like something though, please tell me why so that I can think about fixing it (if I feel it's needed).  There's nothing I hate more than a comment knocking someones work, but not being able to justify it.

So without further ado... 

Above is the over all view of my campaign log.  I know that some players out there, quite literally list and name "Every" model in their army.  Although I think that's cool, it's just not for me.  Instead, I have listed every unit, and "key players" in my armys or fluff.  As I play a game, I decide on the unit, company, Regiment, etc... and then I fill in the CO's name.  The only other time I list a mini on here is when he did something heroic and deserves an award.

Now we come to the list of awards and ribbons that may be present in my army. All of the pictures were found on the Internet at various sites over the years. The names and descriptions have been slightly modified or completely modified to fit my purposes.  This way the awards fit into the background fluff that I will one day share with the Internet.  ;)

awards cont'd....

You may have noticed that there isn't much background regarding the earlier battles or campaigns that BG82 was involved in.  This is mostly due to the fact that although I had thought of fluff back then I didn't document it very well, and secondly after leaving the Army I have no idea what happened to the little that I had. So everything prior to the War of Avenweddon, is simply background that I sort of remember and used to fill in the gap's.  I started this project about 3 years ago, forgot about it, and just started it back up again after the last Apocalypse game. I'm hoping to keep it going as it is quite fun to do.  

The next post will finally show off some more models, as I've been slowly trudging away, just not enough to make a post out of em yet.


  1. This is pretty impressive stuff - this level of tracking has always terrified me, so I very much doff my hat to you!

  2. I take my hat off to you, you've pulled this off really well. Loving the colour medals with ribbons, they're impressive. On the main log, I take it grey is not present at all, or not attached? Always love reading your fluff and stuff like this, keep it coming!

  3. Thanks Guys! I admit this was a long time in the making but mostly due to lack of time. @Col. Scipio, yes grey means "not present in theater". And as write this I can see that I made a mistake with it... :(

  4. damnit ! No time to examine this now, I'll have to come back later.
