The Battle
Across the fields of Cyclades the Leman Russ Company began their attack. The battle was destined to be short. The Falcons opened fire first, destroying two Leman Russes. The return fire from the Arcadian tanks destroyed one Falcon. Both forces proceeded to redeploy, but the Leman Russ Company Commander proved to be better in the art of maneuver warfare. A withering barrage from the Leman Russ' battlecannons destroyed five of the Falcons, and return fire only killed one Arcadian tank. At this point the Eldar Farseer beat a hasty retreat in his Falcon, accompanied by the only other Falcon survivor.
