Administratum: The Space Marines Update

Rejoice servants of the Imperium, for the Space Marine codex has arrived! This holy tome comes complete with guidance on sending your Chapter deep into the heart of the enemy to embark upon an Oathsworn Campaign to right wrongs, purge the heretic, and generally cause hijinks and tomfoolery in the 41st millennium.

And today marks the day that Administratum has support for such a momentous book, with the new add-on available to all our amazing Official Patrons.

Administratum Add-on – Codex: Space Marines

Stand strong against the unrelenting hordes, perform a surgical strike to take out key positions of your opposition, or etch your name into the chronicles of history, all with an Oathsworn Campaign. How does it work? Let’s look to the astropaths for the campaign ahead.

Before taking your first step, you must first plan the journey ahead. And that journey begins with heading to your roster’s Settings tab and installing the Codex: Space Marines add-on. If you are an extra cool Warhound Patrons then you can install this on your Campaign and unlock it for all members! If there are any Space Marine players in your Campaign, then it installs automatically in their Roster!

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single installation

Oathsworn Campaigns

With the add-on installed, you’ll be able to embark upon an Oathsworn Campaign. Bring honour to your chapter, recover lost relics, or embark upon a quest of your own narrative making.

Name your Oathsworn Campaign for that extra narrative flavor

Once you’ve embarked upon an Oathsworn Campaign, you’ll unlock a whole host of Requisitions, including a unique one depending on which type of Oathsworn Campaign you embark upon. On your Roster dashboard, you’ll also see a Campaign Log that will track progress, promotions, and more.

Campaign Log, Stardate 999.M41: There’s something on the wing

Each battle you undertake brings you one step closer to achieving the goals of your Oathsworn Campaign, as well as earning Honour Points. Different agendas let you set short-term goals to gain additional honour while working towards the long-term missions of your campaign.

Fill this out in each of your Battle Reports!

Once the Oathsworn Campaign has concluded, Honour Points can be spent on promoting units, Chapter Command upgrades, or granting worthy units extra experience. For additional options, you can reach to the Requisitions in the Space Marines add-on, which include grim tasks like interring your wounded in Dreadnoughts.

Alas poor Bladeguard Ancient! I knew him, Horatio

There are loads of features and bells and whistles in this add-on, so install it today and get playing. Or, if you are in between games, check out the patch notes below for full details
