For the final battle of this year's Metalica campaign the chaos hulk attacks the mining planet of Costia X to seize the promethium processing facilities wich ring it. We played the scenario breaking the blocade with the imperial navy as the defender. The fact that the imperial cruisers had recieved a good hammering in the last engagement (although being victorious) will make things ugly for them.
The imperials deployed randomly, with the hulk apearing obviously in the zone with less imperial presence. If the hulk exits the board by the imperial side the facilities will be invaded and the planet lost (since it's a gas planet there's no need for land battles).
Defend the promethium gentelmen, the Emperor demands it!
The imperials got the initiative, using Castia's gravity to turn to port and deploying bombers.
The hulk moves on as the imperials race towards it
The cruisers get close and the artillery barrage begins
However, the hulk has more than enough damage left, soaks the incoming shots and moves on
The imperials are close in pursuit, with all guns blazing
But finally the hulk moves out of the table and the planet is lost
So let's actualize the campaign map, the Imperium has got the advantatge with two planets over the chaos's one.
