Port Strike: Eldar Corsairs v. Mauridian Expeditionary Fleet

The Area of Operations.

The Area of Operations.

Today’s battle recounts yet another Eldar Corsair port strike. (You think that’s what Eldar do?) The location is Neptune (the big blue gas giant), and one of its moons is being played by Encedalus. The Octan Station is orbiting Encedalus, and the Mauridians sortie in defense. As usual, click on the pictures for higher resolution.

The Second Coalition War continues, as the Kharadorn Royal Navy attacks the Octan Station orbiting Mars. Defending against (fictional) Kate’s attack is (fictional) Camille and her Chaos fleet.

This is the Convoy scenario tree, running along the Blockade fork because Ivan won fleet initiative.

Fleet Engagement: Kharadorn v. TRN

The next in our campaign playtest series is a Fleet Engagement between the Kharadorn and the Terran Republic Navy, fictionally led by Kate and Terry, respectively. Unlike the fleet engagement between Camille and Zed, this one takes place around an unpopulated gas giant (Njirana) with three moons.

Kate and Terry roll fleet initiative to see what kind of fleet engagement it is. Terry wins the roll, so (because she’s the defender in this case) the engagement is a set-piece.

Kate sets up on one side of Njirana:

Set-up: the Kharadorn deploy.
