Battle Report: The Axis Columen Campaign, Part One
This battle is the first battle in a four battle mini-campaign between the Necrons and the Brazen Claw.
Located in a strategic central location that is also at the nexus of navigable passages through the warp, Axis Columen is known as the “keystone” of the Arcadia Sector. The planet itself remains uncolonized, however its orbit is widely trafficked by both the Imperial Navy and commercial shipping. Upon discovery of a unknown signal emanating from the planet, Imperial Navy scouts were sent to the planet’s surface to investigate, but contact with them was quickly lost. One of the scouts' last recorded transmissions indicated implacable, mechanical beings advancing on them.
Navy Commanders contacted the nearest Space Marine force in the area, a Strike Cruiser of the Brazen Claw. Recognizing the threat, the Brazen Claw responded quickly and decisively.
Battle One: Movement to Contact, 500 pts The Brazen Claw send out small patrols into unknown territory. Their intent is to force the Necron forces to reveal themselves and give battle.
