Bunker 149 Readme (by saoreire)
This 8/6 Player Winter Assault / Dark Crusade map is based on the capital planet in a Planetary Sector.
Following the invasion of a large force of combined Xenos races, the resident PDF (Planetary Defence Force) mounted a fierce & brave defence.
However, the enemy forces were too large to hold back, no matter how brave the PDF was. in the early days of the War, the PDF inflicted massive casualties in the enemy forces, while also sustaining massive losses themselves.
Their efforts were not entirely in vain, as an Imperial Regiment in a neighbouring sector soon came to their aid. They were promised huge reinforcements as this sector was a valuable asset to the Imperium, controling routes to & from many industrial centres.
Also, because of the presence of a Space Marine Tthunderhawk refuelling depot in the Bunker Complex itself, the Adeptus Astartes rapidly deployed a Space Marine Chapter to aid in its defence.
However, due to an incoming Warp Storm, further Imperial Reinforcements were forced to turn back & now the whole Sector is cut off from the Imperium, & any hopes of further aid.
The PDF, Space Marines & the Imperial Guard regiment then withdrew to Bunker 149 & prepared for a long & bloody defence of the Bunker Complex & the planet itself. They hoped to hold out against the invaders & wait out the Warp Storm for further reinforcements.
They can only wait & pray... Pray for the Emperor's protection... & they will need it.
The map contains a large Bunker which you must defend from Heretic & Xenos scum for the Glory of the Emperor.
Outside the Bunker Complex theres a River with a Bridge crossing it. This was the scene of an earlier battle, which you (sadly) lost. Accross the river lies the enemy bases.
There is only 1 entrance to the Bunker Complex & I'd recommend setting up your defences there ASAP, as the enemy is a big fan of rushing!
You & 2 allies start in the Bunker & must prepare to defend it from the waves of enemy attacks & then prepare a counter-attack to reclaim the Planet in the name of the Emperor.
You Must Not Fail!
To play as 8Player:
Set P1,2&3 to the same team (eg. Team 1) & players 4,5,6,7&8 to their own team (eg. Team2) & you've got yourself a 3v5 defence map. This way is challenging & I'd recommend setting the difficulty to easy at most if you really wanna win.
To play as 6Player:
Set P1,2&3 to Team 1 & P6,7&8 to Team two & you've got yourself a 3v3 defence map. This is easier than the 8Player way above & is recommended for less-skilled players, like me =) !

This game was tested with DC.
This map was inspired by another map of mine, Bunker 135. Check it out. its pretty cool.
I'm a big Imperium fan & as a result most (if not all) of my maps are for Imperial Players.
However, if you are a fan of Heretics/Xenos, FEAR NOT! To play this map as an assault map (where you & the other Heretics/Xenos are attacking the Bunker) simply open up this map with the WA RDN Tools & Player1's Starting Position to the opposite side & move one of P 4,5,6,7,8's S.P.'s into the Bunker & Voila! You got yourself an assault map! Ingenious, eh?
