In bloodied fields, the poppies grow
Between the corpses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the din below...


Darkness approaches for war is coming, and few indeed will escape unmarked. Animosity has returned!
Da Warpath and Animosity Campaigns are proud to  present Animosity 5. Our largest and most ambitious online campaign to date.

Click on the image below to watch the introductory trailer.



Animosity 5 is an online Warhammer Campaign like no other. Offering unparalleled freedom and immersion, choose a Faction and shape its identity as you help them to victory.  Plot your movements across land and sea, construct buildings and fortifications to hold back your enemies, fight for control of regions, locations, and breach points to garner Renown and resources. Upgrade your general with skills and wargear, and communicate directly with the great leaders of the conflict to elicit their aid or to bring them low and take from them everything they hold dear. Unleash custom special projects as you marshall your armies to crush all who stand before you or instead, ally with the realm against those who come seeking plunder. Pursue your goals across the length and bredth of a dynamic, multi-levelled map as each faction battles for control of Estalia.

Anyone new to online campaigning wondering what on earth I'm on about, have a look at the FAQ on our website for new players. In essence, our online campaigns are GM'd map based conquest games cloaked heavily in RPG elements. Each player joins a faction. Each faction places battles fought by its members in locations on a map in an attempt to win territory. There are numerous ways to protect what is yours and weaken what belongs to your enemy, from diplomacy to fortification, from special projects to spies. The mechanics provide the framework, but as with any RPG, where you take it is up to you.

Also, to head off the most frequently asked question, no you don't have to fight someone else playing in the campaign, you can report any game against any opponent to help your faction secure victory. In fact, you don't even have to fight battles at all to participate! Over the coming weeks we will release the factions information and the slowly reveal the story that has brought armies from across the warhammer world to Estalia.

Animosity begins... January 10th 2011.
Great stuff let's get together a great faction here at CDO!
For those who are interested. A number of pre-campaign contests have begun (fluff, modelling, rule writing). Participation will garner in game rewards once the campaign begins.
Well I don't know about everyone else but I'm signing up!  We should form a sub-faction of sorts like in Nemisis Crown!  Who else is going to participate? any idea on what faction you will be a part of?
I imagine some Chaos Dwarfs would fit in with the reavers nicely.... Hope to see you there....
Trial armylists and faction backgrounds are now available for download here
Faction Registration has begun. The campaign itself kicks off next monday!
For those who are interested Animosity has been going for a few turns right now and is so far a great success. However the Reveres (The faction Chaos Dwarfs are part of) is sadly lacking behind in numbers.

So support your fellow slave drivers and sigh up today. It is great fun and needs only as much work as you are willing to put in.

P.S. If you don’t want to join the Revs, Clan Skarr is always recruiting.
