As the Eldar finish off the last of the Ork remnants around Ignis 1 and 2 another Band of Orks prepares to do battle against a Chaos fleet above Gena. The focus this week is on Seris 2 and it's moon as a large Chaos fleet has used it's Tzeentch trickery to deploy all of it's ships into orbit around the moon threatening the tenuous hold the Imperium has on the planet of Seris 2. It seems now that this system may be doomed to remain shrouded in mystery as fresh blood is spilled on every planet.

The Delicate alliance between the Eldar and Dark Eldar has spelled almost certain doom for the Ork fleet that has attempted to claim the planets Ignis 1 and Ignis 2. The Ork ships have been all but wiped out of the sectors as the three factions ready for their assaults on the planets below. Meanwhile another alliance has proven equally effective over the Moon of Seris 2. The Blood Angels and the Imperial Guard have severely damaged a plague fleet that entered their sector. The forces of Nurgle are not so easily defeated though as a massive invasion of the moon has already begun. Only time will tell if the superior numbers and fortifications defending the moon will be enough to stem the tide of Chaos. Still more fleet battles are being fought, but strange occurences are begining to plague the forces occupying the planets. Troops have begun dissapearing and those in tune with psychic phenomena are reporting grim omens on the horizon.

The Servants Of Decay continue on their path of destruction as they continue to wreak havoc amongst the stars. With successful raids on enemy ships they continue to fortify their positions on Lumen. However, like a few other fleets they seem to be burning their craft down to the wick to attempt victory. Meanwhile a coalition of Blood Angels and Imperial Guard has secured Seris 2 and the Moon of Seris 2 even with a Tyranid hive fleet in orbit above. Closer to the sun a 3-way battle is ensuing over the sun-baked planet of Ignis 2 as Orks, Dark Eldar, and Ultramarines battle for supremacy on the deserts below.

As the fleets drew closer to the system the Orks were the first to capture enemy vessels whose attentions were elsewhere. The Renegade Guard - "Servants Of Decay" had a similar idea and began attacking other craft with their own assault teams.
Now, almost all of the fleets have entered the system with some titanic battles ensuing over and on the planet Lumen. The planet bordering the edge of Seris was too great a temptation for the Plague, Chaos Undivided, and Ork fleets that clashed there. For the moment it seems as though the Servants Of Decay have won the planet, but the fates are fickle. Who knows what the ides of battle may bring.

The Campaign maps and rules are now available on the web right here! The first turn of the campaign will not be until January 6th, but players can still perform daring boarding actions in hopes of weakening their opponent's fleet. Failure means exposing your own fleet positions though. Check out the boarding action rules on the forum HERE!
For those that wanted to count it the Black Friday Apocalypse Game was the kickoff event for the campaign. It represented certain fleets arriving to the system early and finding themselves embroiled in a massive firefight in orbit and on the ground of one of the planets. As it is only 2 forces decided to stay planetside. Dadieau's Blood Angels and Sal's Necron are the first to hold planetary territory on the map but they are also the first to have their ships damaged as they remained in orbit instead of pulling out of the area to perform full repairs.
