Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Chaos Campaign - Chapter 3, Mission 2

Here are general tips for playing the Chaos Champaign in Warhammer: Mark of Chaos on HARD Difficulty. At the end of Chapter 1, Mission 6, we chose Nurgle instead of Khorne. A list of all our Warhammer: Mark of Chaos articles can be found here.
We won't be hand-holding you through absolutely everything, but instead just give tips on situations that we found tricky or that you might not have considered.

Chapter 3: The Path to Glory

Mission 2: Bringers of Darkness

Overview
  • This is a very easy mission with endless enemy reinforcements, so you have the opportunity to level up the heroes you bring with you.
    • They come several minutes apart so you can get some levelling done IF you have the patience. The level limit for this Chapter is over 30 but I didn't have the patience to find out what is was.
    • You really only need Kasqit to reach level 25 so that any heroes you hire can immediately access their entire skill tree.
  • The basics of this mission are like every other open-field battle: Take point with a sturdy unit and a hero who can resurrect models; and kill the enemy regiments with a huge number of missile troops.
  • The reinforcements are single regiments, so once you have secured the area around the landing zone, you can defeat them quickly.
    • You can destroy the ships with cannon fire, but it doesn't appear to affect anything about future reinforcements.
    • If you manage to destroy a ship prior to it landing any troops, no troops will land. Damaging a ship does not reduce the size of the regiment that lands.
  • Maybe due to the many bumps on the terrain map, it is very hard to predict where a regiment will settle into formation, and often you will have them at odd angles or widely spaced out. It is much better (flatter terrain) near the roads.
The mission is otherwise very straightforward.
