The second of the two intro games I ran for Mike – he has now bought a FW Tau fleet.
The Imperial Fleet deployed as the defenders of the planet again
The Chaos fleet went for a heavy deployment on the right, leaving some escorts to flank left
Hoping the crush the escorts quickly before turning to meet the main bulk of the Chaos fleet, the Imperials move forward and engage
In response the Chaos fleet swiftly moves up, engaging the planetary defences
The Imperials, having dealt with the Chaos escorts sweep through gaps in the asteroid field
The Chaos fleet lays enough damage on the moving away Imperials to force them to disengage
