Since nobody else is writing up anything for a campaign (my local group), I’m going to make a go at it. This is based on the Codex Eye of Terror, from Version 3; I will of course update this for version 5. The system for this mega battle is in the Drax system, nine worlds surrounding an M class star, six of the worlds contain mega cities aka hives, two of the worlds are farm worlds, and one is a death planet.
The prime world is Drax; this is the governing planet for the system. This planet has no less then three Hive cities, Blackmyer, The Rook, and Acre. The planet has two space ports, and six military installations. The next planet is Tabor Prime, an industrial world primarily utilized by the military to supply the empire with weapons and munitions.
Here’s the list of the planets.
Drax: Governing planet - Mixed
Tabor Prime: Industrial world - Ice
Armagon: Industrial world – Fair
Setmore: Hive world – Swamp
Baracus: Hive world – Desert
Oubliette: Industrial world – Mixed
Triden: Farming world –Mixed
Hyborn: Farming world –Mixed
Darkness Alpha: Death world – Mixed
The Terror incidents…
Tabor Prime, Stardate 40.397.2
On the main continent of Viridian Magus, a small set of ruins have been discovered under the ice fields. It appears to be an Eldar construct, a wraithbone portal of some kind, it seems to still be powered, and Imperial agents have been dispatch to investigate.
Hyborn, Stardate 40.397.6
Six farming communities have become silent after a night of terrible storms; no communications have reach these outposts, planetary defense forces have been dispatched to investigate.
Baracus orbit, Stardate 40.397.7
Ultramarine Strike station Beta has contact with Alien vessel in orbit around second moon, interceptors launched will report findings.
The campaign will work like this, this system is controlled by the Empire of Man, what this means is the Imperial player will control six out of the nine worlds to begin with. Three of the worlds are under attack by Aliens, Chaos (me and Robert), Eldar (Frank), and Orks (Jarrett). These will be planet strike attacks, but the planets are not prepared and will only have half the normal points to set up their defenses. Control of the planets will dictate points for troops, special powers, and resources.
