1500 Points 

Pre-made map. Mini Narrative campaign. Chaos occupied Imperial world, Imperials trying to take it back. 

Games will be mix of PlanetStrike, Main Rulebook and Modified cities of Death. 

The winning team is determined by battle points. Battle points are earned by winning a tile. More important tiles are worth more battle points. 

Players earn battle points for their team but individual wins/losses will be tracked as well to determine league winner. The "winning team" is ultimately not important. 

The "team" controls tiles but every player will have individual flag color that represents their army on the map. Battles will be organized by where a player's flag is. Veteran status will be used and tracked. 

Player flags may move up to two tiles per turn. Can attack any adjacent emey tiles, and may move onto them if conquered. 

After movement and attack moves are made for both sides each team may place one infrastructure on any friendly tile. The infrastructure affects friendly tiles in a radius of one. 

1- Manufactorum: Player may add 100 points to army list. 

2- Shield Generator: Opposing team may not initiate a planet strike game.

3- Power Station: Player may take 1 stratagem from Cities of Death in a normal game, +1 in a Cities of Death game, or +1 in Planet Strike Game. 

4- Command Bastion: Player may add +1 to either who chooses deployment zone or sieze of initiative roll. 

5. Special! Max one made per team. Barracks: Player gets one free squad of Codex: Imperial Guard infantry added to player army. (one squad of 10). The squad takes up 1 troop slot. 

6- Special! Cannot be made. Orbital Command: Player gets one orbital bombardment (as per COdex: Space Marines) during the game. Entire tile map and its radius counts as shield generator as well.
