There is a Games Workshop Campaign called the Conquest of Kaiserslautern VI, going on currently in the US in a beta format. Now we have direct information from the campaign documents that can enlighten us as to what exactly is in this campaign, and what it is.

First off, this campaign is based off the Dark Vengeance box, but does allow for different armies to participate besides just Chaos Space Marines and Dark Angels. The Campaign really does take full advantage of the Dark Vengeance box set, which really does help newer players jump directly into this campaign really easily.

Lets take a look at what this campaign involves.

Warning: if you are in this campaign, there may be spoilers below, so proceed with caution, or stop here.

Here is what I have on the GW campaign

Conquest of Kaiserslautern VI
"On the remote imperial planet of Kaiserslautern VI in a distant sector the servants of the Dark Gods open a new chapter in their unending campaign to destroy the Imperium of Man. Having planted the seeds of rebellion among the populace for centuries, Chaos Lord Krannon the Relentless is now ready to reap the bitter harvest. There is still hope, however, for the citizens loyal to the Emperor. Company Master Balthasar and his Dark Angels stand ready to defend Kaiserslautern VI with their very lives, if necessary. The fate of the planet is now in your hands. It is time to choose sides and once again let slip the dogs of war."

The campaign is geared towards Dark Angels and Chaos Space Marines but you can swap out other armies into the mix.

Here are the missions
Models to participate: Dark Vengeance or equivalent for from a different army
