If you ever played a RTS that is. It's basically letting you get a handle of the controls and how the Strategic Points play into the game. Select your Space Marine Squads. Send one to capture the closest Strategic Point to the right of your base. Send the other squad to the strategic point north of the last one. In a crater area is 2 full groups of Gretchins. Your hero should be able to destroy them. Once your base is done, select one of the Servitors to build a Chapel-Barracks, and send the other to build a listening post. Once both are done, start working on 2 marine squads. Send one of the Servitors to build an Armory, and the other to build a second Listening Post. Start working on reinforcing your Squads that have been built. Once your Armory is complete, get 2 Heavy Bolters on each squad. I didn't upgrade Heavy Weapon Increase, I thought 2 Heavy Bolters per squad was enough. To the east of your base is a few Orks, they are easy enough to destroy. Around now you should get an objective to build a Plasma Generator, do so when you have the resources, but only after Reinforcing and getting Heavy Bolters. Head south of the Orks and capture the Strategic Point and place a Listening Post on it. Before you head east to a Ork base, make sure you've upgraded Heavy Bolters and maxed reinforcements. It does not matter what you target since their Da Boyz Hut does not build any Orks. Just be sure to focus fire. To the north is a strategic point, ignore it for now. A little north west of the strategic point is some Imperial Guard being attacked by Orks. Kill the Orks and then capture the point. Once the Strategic point is captured, head north and you will find some more Imperial Guard in help (Are they needy or what?). Now you should be getting small waves of attacks from the Ork camp, in groups 2-6 normally. Just keep pushing toward the next area. There should be a flashing objective marker where a Da Boyz Hut is, try to target that instead of the tower first. Then take out the towers nearby. To the south west from where Da Boyz Hut is a looted imperial guard tank, destroy it. To the west of Da Boyz Hut is some more Imperial Guard being attacked. Hurry over there and help them out (Again). And yet again, there is more Imperial Guard to the north. I would just skip the Secure the Spaceport objective head straight toward their Settlement. To the south east you can save an Imperial Guard Lemmen Russ tank, which then you can command which can help. It's not hard to save it. If you want to, head south and save some more Imperial Guard from certain death from the Orks (Like it matters). Kinda funny, I couldn't kill the Orks in time there, and they all died but the objective was complete. If you haven't already, head out toward their Settlement. On the way toward the Settlement, there will be 2 groups of Orks in a Heavy Cover area, this is the hardest part of the level, which is rather sad. The best way to finish them quickly is to make them target your hero in ranged attack, then make him run behind your Space Marine Squad. They should follow him out of the cover and will be easier to kill them. Up at the Settlement there is also a Da Boyz Hut, target that first, then get to work on the Settlement. There are a few Waaagh Towers nearby, so be sure to keep reinforcing your troops. Then start working on the Pile O Gunz nearby to close the level finally. --- Level 2 - Infiltration (I) Objectives: Cleanse the Valley Reclaim the Waterworks Establish a Base Secondary Objectives: Use the Infiltrate Ability Kill the Orks on the land bridge Upgrade the Stronghold Upgrade the Listening Post Review: This level is quite a bit harder than the previous. The start of the level makes you do a stealth sequence. After you kill a Nob Leader, then you start really fighting. Once you start, enable Infiltration on the Scout Marine Squad and move them to the objective marker. On the way, you should see some Imperial Guard, and guess what? You don't have to save them! Past them you will find some dead Orks on the ground. Now you get another Scout Marine Squad with Sniper Rifles which can deal massive damage to infantry. Disable Infiltration on the Scout Marine Squad and start attacking the Orks trying to capture the Strategic Point. Once they are dead, start capturing the Strategic Point for some income. Enable Infiltration on both of the Scout Marine Squads and head to the north east, there is a small Ork outpost there. Be careful, there is a Nob Leader there that can disable your cloaking. I like to attack him with Sniper Scout Marine Squad and then take down the rest of the Orks for later. Plus you get more Strategic Resource. Then head out of the Ork outpost and toward the next objective marker. Along the way. There should be 3 Orks near the next objective. Move both squads into the Light Cover nearby and attack them with the Sniper Scout Marine Squad. Use the normal Scout Marine Squad as a decoy for damage. There is a Nob Leader here also to the south. I like to take out the Orks around him before taking him down. They patrol and only appear every once in a while near him. The reason I do this is because you get your Force Commander and Space Marine Squads after the Nob Leader is dead, so you can help save some of their HP. Once a few or all of the Orks are dead, target the Nob Leader. Your attack force will come down. Each squad is already equipped with 2 Heavy Bolters, which is helpful. Head your Force Commander up the hill toward the waterworks, and make the Space Marine Squads follow him. Use him as a damage decoy, and if he dies, retreat until he returns and do the same thing again. You can also make the Sniper Scout Marine Squad come with you to help with the Ork infantry. Start attacking the Da Boyz Hut before anything else, then start on the Waaagh Towers. Once all the buildings are gone, two Servitors will be dropped in. Set them to work on a Stronghold, and start working on capturing the Strategic Points at the waterworks. Once youíre done capturing the Strategic Points, send one of your Servitors to work on Listening Posts. Then get to work on a Plasma Generator and Chappel-Barracks once the Stronghold is done. I would start researching Squad Cap Increase at the Stronghold (You can also upgrade once more). Finally set to work on an Armory. Once the Chappel-Barracks is done, get to work on two to three Space Marine Squads. Once two squads are fully reinforced, set them to the base defense and make your Heavy Bolter Space Marine Squad go with your Force Commander to the Ork outpost to the north. You should just use the same strategy as before, use your Force Commander as a damage decoy. Once the outpost is destroyed, start capturing the Strategic Point. Also you may have gotten the secondary objective that says you can upgrade your Stronghold with a Monastery add-on. Do this as soon as you can. You should have captured the Strategic Point by now, head there with your Servitors and build Listening Posts on the newly captured Strategic Point and the previous Strategic Point you captured with the scouts. Once the Monastery add-on is done, use this setup for your space marine squads... Half of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 2 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 1 Half of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 1 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 2 There are very few Heavy Infantry on this level (I believe only the Nob Leaders), so you don't even need that 1 Plasma Gun if you want. Also be sure to build Sergeants in all of your squads. There are a few Killa Kans on this level. The best way to kill them is to have the Force Commander take the damage for your troops. Or you can just keep moving the squad that he has targeted behind other marines, like military leap frog. After a period of time, you will be able to upgrade your Listening Posts, upgrade ALL of them. Cancel heavy weapons and reinforcements if you have to. Head south east of your base to the Strategic Point and capture it. Start working on a Listening Post then start heading south toward an Ork base. It should not be that hard with the Missile Launchers in your group. Once you destroy the Ork base, start capturing the Strategic Point a bit north west of the base, and cap it with a Listening Post. Now head North West toward the Strategic Point if you want to gain control of some Imperial Guard, but it does not matter if you do. Up there is 2 Waaagh Towers and a Killa Kan. Some Imperial Guard attacking an Ork Listening Post. Once you gain control of the Imperial Guard, start reinforcing them. The next place to go is a land bridge with a strategic point in the middle. There are a lot of Orks there, and towers at a base to the south east of there can attack you also. This is one of two main battles in the level. Just be sure to make the Heavy Bolter squads attack the Orks and Missile Launcher squads attack the towers. There is a fork in the path ahead. The north and east path both lead to Ork bases. I like to take the north base before you take down the south base. Just target the Da Boys Huts to finish the bases quickly. If you try to attack the south base, I find the north base keeps sending waves of troops so you cannot really focus on the base's buildings. Once the north base is done, reinforce everyone to the max and get all the heavy weapons you can. Then head out to the next and final base. Inside there they have a Da Mek Shop toward the entrance of the base, sometimes it will build Killa Kans so I like to take that out early just in case. The Da Boyz Hut in this base is deep within, you can manually move your marines towards it and take the fire from the buildings, or just keep pushing toward there. Eventually you will just keep chipping away on the base until it's destroyed. --- Mission 3 - Under Siege (US) Objectives: Retake the City Destroy the Ork Structures Secondary Objectives: Capture the Strategic Points Locate the Lost Troop Review: Ugh, I hate the beginning of this level. Once you get a base established, it's not that hard to win on this map. It's just the start that can be a problem. I would use the same heavy weapons setup as last level. Once you start, move your Force Commander and Librarian into the area between the 2 Strategic Points. Make both of your Space Marine Squads capture the 2 Strategic Points near them. Also build another Servitor and move the one within your base down to the other to help build. You can either destroy the Heavy Bolter Turrets, or some of them for Strategic Resources for Reinforcing your Imperial Guard. Once capturing the Strategic Points are complete, make the 2 Servitors start building a Listening Post on one of the Strategic Points. Make your other Servitor that you built work on a Armory and 2 Plasma Generators. Also be sure to upgrade the Listening Posts within your base, and the one to the north east of your base. Once the armory is complete, build 1 Heavy Bolter in each squad. Then upgrade the Monastery add-on as soon as you can. Start building Heavy Bolter turrets ASAP. I built them in a square pattern, so there are 8 surrounding the Listening Post. Once that is done, do the same on the other side. While doing all of this, you will be attacked by quite a few Orks, and even a few Looted Lemm Russ tanks (sadly). Which is why you should get at least 1 Missile Launcher. Also some Orks may sneak past you and attack your base, so be careful about that. Its good to keep your Force Commander and Librarian not on the street that goes north east, since they will follow retreating Orks into a base if you do not keep an eye on them. Starting a base can be hard, but once you get 1 side's Heavy Bolter Turrets up, it's a lot easier. I like to place 5 Heavy Bolter Turrets before you start on the other side. Once you get both sides equipped with the Heavy Bolter Turrets, start upgrading at the Armory and get another Space Marine squad. Once you have at least 3 squads fully equipped, start pushing toward the center of the map, there are 2 Strategic Points and a Da Mek Shop and Da Boyz Hut that I like to destroy yearly on. I would skip capturing the Strategic Points there for right now and capture the points to the North West and south east of your base. There are no Orks there to kill, simple to capture. Also I think you should get the Strengthen Electrical Grid at a Plasma Generator if your running low on power. Of the six Strategic Points near the center of the map, I would head to the most south east of them. Near there is a Machine Cult that is under construction and needs a Servitor to finish building it. There is also a Da Boyz Hut there that is waiting to be destroyed. Send your Servitors there and start working on the Machine Cult. You should also gain control of a Dreadnaught, upgrade him so he will get an Assault Cannon. Start working on more Dreadnaughts if you have enough Power. If you want to build more Dreadnaughts than just the Vehicle Cap Increase allows, build a few more Machine Cults in your base, each increases the max vehicle cap by 2. Capture the Strategic Point and cap it off with a Listening Post. Also build a few Heavy Bolter Turrets. Head to the Strategic Point to the north east of where your troops are and destroy the buildings there, you can skip capturing the Strategic Point there (I personally like to just skip it). Now I like to go back into the middle of the map, where the Da Mek Shop and Da Boyz Hut was. Start capturing the Strategic Points and build Heavy Bolter Turrets at the north east Strategic Point. Then head to the northern most Strategic Point, it seems a lot of Orks come through there. Capture that Strategic Point and build Bolter Turrets. Now just finish the Ork cleanup with the west most Strategic Point were a few Waaagh! Towers are along with a Da Boyz Hut. Once you finish that, now you can capture and cap the east most Strategic Point and build some defenses there, or start attacking the Ork base. If you choose to attack the base, take all of the Dreadnaughts you have created with you and upgrade them with the Assault Cannon. Then send them in first, they will deal a lot of damage and weaken the base a lot. In fact, you can destroy the entire base with just the 3 Dreadnaughts. It's now easy to kill the Orks, they are now cornered, and cannot get past your Heavy Bolter Turrets, so you can mass all the troops first before you attack. --- Mission 4 - Destroy the Xenos (DTX) Objectives: Kill the Warboss and destroy his entire base Cleanse the area of Orks and establish a base Destroy the Wartrak Clan Secondary Objectives: Construct a second Stronghold Review: I personally don't like this level, it's the demo level. I played it multiple times before I bought the game and now I am bored with this level. Once again it the hardest part I believe is just the start of the level, then it gets easy. I want to note now you gain access of Assault Marines, which are close combat specialist. I donít use them that much in Insane mode much except for their Melta Bombs which deal quite a bit of damage to buildings and vehicles. Once you start, you have control of 3 Whirlwinds and 2 Assault Marine Squads. Leave the Assault marines alone for right now. You should first target the Da Boyz Huts there. While attacking, the Gretchin Squad will attempt to repair the building and die in the process. Once you destroy a Da Boyz Hut, an Ork squad will come out from garrison. One of the Da Boyz Hut holds a Slugga Boy Squad and the other holds a Shoota Boy Squad. Now you should start attacking the Shoota Boy and Slugga Boy Squads. Each time your Whirlwinds fire, alternate which squad you attack for maximum affect. Then start attacking the two farthest Waaagh! Towers. Before you start attacking the closest Waaagh! Tower, use the Assault Marine's Jump ability to jump past the closest tower and order them to start capturing the two Strategic Points nearby. Now finish the final Waaagh! tower. Once all the buildings are destroyed, your Force Commander, Librarian, 2 Servitors and multiple buildings drop in. Stop your Servitors from working on the Stronghold and order them to build the other buildings. Your buildings will be built very quickly, this is a exploit that you can do if you want. Also build Listening Posts if you are done capturing the Strategic Points. Once all of the other buildings are complete, finish the Stronghold. Once the Stronghold is finished, the quick build speed will be disabled. Get to work on at least 1 Plasma Generator, upgrading Listening Posts and get the Monastery add-on. Now you can either keep your Force Commander and Librarian defending the north Strategic Point from StormBoyz Squads (They have the Jump ability, so they can jump over the trees and sneak attack your base), or you can build a Heavy Bolter Turret or two near the Listening Post, and repair them after an attack. If you build the turrets, take the Force Commander and Librarian along with your main force. Now you also have another choice, stay in the base and defend against attacks or capture the next Strategic Point to the east and risk a big attack. I personally like to just tech within the base. If you do want the next Strategic Point, place a Listening Post ASAP along with a few Heavy Bolter Turrets. I would get Escalated Engagement Research and Strengthen Power Grid ASAP. Also you may want to build 1 or 2 Heavy Bolter Turrets next to the Listening Post. Then get 2 Space Marine Squads and get a slightly different heavy weapons setup. Quarter of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 2 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 1 Quarter of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 1 Plasma Gun: 2 Missile Launcher: 1 Half of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 1 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 2 But for now, make your first few Space Marine Squads get only 1 Missile Launcher, and let your future Space Marine Squads be the second half. While doing all this, get Heavy Weapon Increase and a few other Armory upgrades. You will be attacked by Nob Squads after a little while, so be sure to have some Plasma Guns ready. Once you have 3-4 fully equipped Space Marine Squads, start heading out to the next Strategic Point. Cap it and place a few Heavy Bolter Turrets. Head north with your troops and there will be some Ork squads up on a hill with a Strategic Point. Kill every one there and then keep following the path. Along the way there will be a Waaagh! Tower on a cliff so you can only attack by range and some Orks in a Heavy Cover crater. Further up the path is 2 Waaagh! Towers and usually a few Orks guarding it along with a Wartrak. To the east of those towers is another Strategic Point, but before you capture it, there is a small track to the east. Up there is a Killa Kan and a Da Mek Shop, destroy them both. Now head back to the Strategic Point and capture it, and cap it off with a Listening Post. Before you start on the other Strategic Point, attack the Ork base below. It is not that hard, as long as you get your Missile Launcher squads before this part. Just keep chipping away at the base and it should be down quickly enough. You may have to retreat however to defend your Strategic Point from an attack. Once the base is destroyed, send all but one squad back to capture the cliff- side Strategic Point. Make the left behind squad start capturing the Strategic point there. Send all your Servitors to the destroyed Ork base and start building a Stronghold and Slag Deposit. I like to build 2 Machine Cults there and start building the max amount of Dreadnaughts you can have. Then build any amount of generator needed to supply the building there as well. While all of that is happening, start pushing forward to the next two Strategic Points. It should not be hard, except for two, yes two, Killa Kans. Capture the Strategic Points there and build Listening Posts there. Build as many Heavy Bolter turrets as possible at the north Strategic Point and get the Missile Turret upgrade at all of them. Be sure to leave enough space to allow Dreadnaughts to squeeze through. Upgrade all your Dreadnaughts with the Assault Cannon and head past the Heavy Bolter turrets. You will meat up with the Ork's super unit, Squiggoth. Just set all of your Dreadnaughts on Assault mode and melee that thing to death. You may lose all your Dreadnaught because there are also multiple Killa Kans nearby that might start attacking you as well. Also a few Looted Lemm Russ tanks, PLUS the Warboss. If the Dreadnaughts do die, the missile turrets will finish him if the Squiggoth tries to advance, that is if some Killa Kans, Looted Lemm Russ and the Warboss don't accompany it. If they do, attack with all so far built Dreadnaughts to help. Once the Squiggoth is done, it's fairly easy to pick off the rest of them. Once they are all finished, build up a force of more Dreadnaughts or just attack with your Space Marines. I personally like to just use Dreadnaughts to finish the job (I really like Dreadnaughts). Now you just need to sweep the base and then the level is done! Just a tip though, destroy the Da Mek Shops early so they cannot make any more vehicles. --- Mission 5 - A New Lead (ANL) Review: I personally find this level boring. The main thing about this level is that your introduced to the (very cool IMO) Eldar. Basically at the start you can tech up as much as you want, then move forward with small battles. Then at the end is a big battle, and thatís it! Note: ALWAYS target the Webway Gates first, trust me on this. Once the level begins, start by building an Armory and at least 2 Plasma Generators. Start to work on another Space Marine Squad. Start to work on capturing Strategic Point to the east and south. When you go to the south Strategic Point, there are fleeing Orks, you can just let them run by. Once you capture both of them, cap them with Listening Posts and upgrade them. Once again upgrade the Monastery add-on and work on Escalated Engagement Research and Strengthen Power Grid research. Just want to note that this is a good setup for this level. There are no heavy infantry and few buildings, I like to just get 0/2/1/1 for all of my troops. Half or more of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 2-3 Plasma Gun: 0-1 Missile Launcher: 1 Optional amount your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 1 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 2 Now make your Servitors go back to the base and work on a Machine Cult and Sacred Artifact. Also work on Increase Vehicle Cap research. Once that is done, build any more Space Marine squads you want. Also build at least 1 Heavy Bolter turret at the southern Strategic Point, this will help for later. Now once all that is done, head to the most southern Strategic Point on the map. You will now encounter Eldar, kill them and capture the Strategic Point. Leave the rest your Space Marine squads back and head forward on the path. You will get attacked by Dark Reapers, units that are good against heavy infantry. Head back and now you will be able to create Rhino Transports. Create one Rhino Transport for each of your Space Marine squads. Load all of your troops up and head out to the objective beacon. Once you reach there, unload your troops and move your Rhino Tanks to the Dark Reaper cliff-edge as decoys for your Space Marine squads. Now just keep moving your troops along the edge and destroy the Dark Reapers. Now capture the Strategic Point where you dropped your Space Marines off, and capture the Strategic Point and cap it off. Now, you need to head back down to the area where you first saw the Dark Reapers. Head up a path near there and capture the Strategic Point and cap it off. Yet again, head forward to the next Strategic Point, capture it, and cap it. Now, you can build a few Bolter Turrets if you want, up ahead is a battle between Eldar and Orks. Sometimes the Orks win by a lot, or the Eldar get a lot of reinforcement for the Webway gates (or they both may just focus on you), and if they do, head back so you can get a bit of cover if you want it. Just keep working away at the base and it will be destroyed. There are 2 Strategic Points within the base to capture. Now, regroup and reinforce before you head forward at all. Up ahead is a fairly big battle at an Eldar base, so be sure to have Heavy Weaps maxed out. Work on the Warp Gates first, they are what provide reinforcements for the Eldar. Once you finish clearing the base, the Force Commander reccomends to build a forward base, I agree with this. Get all your Servitors up to the area and start on a Stronghold. Once it's finished, work on 2 Machine Cults. Also build some Plasma Generators for some Dreadnaughts. Yes, work on Dreadnaughts. Get a good amount of Dreadnaughts before you continue, there are a big amount of Eldar ahead and Webway Gates there. Just focus on the Webway Gates, with them down they cannot get more squads into the battle. They will be able to reinforce with a lot more squads if you do not take them down. Once they are gone, work on any Dark Reapers if there are any there. With them gone, move your Space Marine squads forward and help destroy the rest of the Eldar. Once all of them are destroyed, just move your Force Commander to the objective beacon and you won. I think this is a fairly simple level, don't you? --- Mission 6 - Into the Maw (ITM) Review: I hate this level on Insane mode, I only beat it once or twice. Otherwise this level is fun I believe. Some reason I have always had a problem getting a secure base started up. At the start is to get the Assault Cannon on the Dreadnaught. Then give the Dreadnaught a moving start. Start moving the scouts north east and use them as a decoy for the rest of your troops. If the Spiritwalker doesn't take the bait, retry it. Use the Dreadnaught to attack the Dark Reapers. Once they are decoyed from Dreadnaught, Jump your Assault marines to the Dark Reapers and start melee combat them. While this is happening, make your Space Marines focus fire on a Guardian squad. Then use the Smite ability on the other Guardian Squad. Once all of the squads are dead, start focus firing on the Spiritwalker. Make sure to set your Dreadnaught and Assault Marines to ranged stance if your scout squad is dead by now to save them from damage/death. Once all of the enemies there are destroyed, start moving north and you will see a Webway Gate. You will be informed how they can teleport the Eldar units from one Webway Gate to another. It also will add an objective, one that you should focus on a lot. Go to the north east strategic point and destroy the Guardian squad there. Head west a bit and a Stronghold along with two Servitors will drop in. The Imperial Guard will now come to guard a pass where Orks will attack in waves every 5-8 minutes, with increasingly harder troops. One of the servitors will not be working on the Stronghold right away. Send him to help with the construction. Set your Dreadnaught to guard the Stronghold to the west near the Listening Post. Start capturing the strategic point to the west and east of your base. Do not start on the other strategic point north east of your base. I find it much easier to turtle with just the two closest strategic points than stretch out with the third point. Send all of your troops to the north east strategic point besides the Dreadnaught. Once the capturing of the strategic points is complete, send one of the Servitors to work on a Listening Post, and set up a waypoint to build the other listening post. Once the Stronghold is complete, start on a Plasma Generator. Now share the following buildings between your servitors; Chapel-Barracks, Armory, Thermo Plasma Generator. Also work on building Heavy Bolter turrets at the south east strategic point. That is where the enemy mainly attacks you, so I built about 2 turrets at the start. Also I built Heavy Bolter turret and the north east strategic point.. Work on upgrading your Space Marine squads, they will be your main force this game. Once again the enemy is Eldar, so get this weapon setup... Half or more of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 2-3 Plasma Gun: 0-1 Missile Launcher: 1 Quarter or more of your Troops Flamer: 0 Heavy Bolter: 1 Plasma Gun: 1 Missile Launcher: 2 I like to use Dreadnaughts as your main vehicle of choice. The Imperial Guard are not good at defending the pass. The only reason they can hang on so long is their tanks. I would move most of Dreadnaughts to the front of the Imperial Gaurd. Keep about 4 of them at your base to defend it. Set the Ork pass Dreadnaughts on Versatile stance and Hold Ground stance. Also be sure to equip them most with Assault Cannon. When the Orks do attack, be sure to monitor it. They get vehicles after a few waves, so you may want to melee them instead of just relying on Assault Cannon. Once you can, start on the other strategic point to the north east. Before you capture it though, start attacking on the Webway Gate to the north of it. If you do not, they can continue to attack you while you are capturing the strategic point. Once your force is ready, head north east of the strategic point. Keep moving until you find a Webway gate. Once you find it, destroy it. Now I suggest you take on one of the three main Eldar bases. Head back toward the strategic point, and cross the bridge north west of it. Now keep following the road until you see an area you can enter on off to the east side of the road. There is a Webway Gate there you should destroy. Once again, keep following the road. Once you reach a Strategic Point, destroy the listening post and capture it. Once it is captured, head toward the strategic point to the north east. Capture the point there and prepare for battle. Once you are ready, go to the south east and start attacking the Eldar base. There is not much of a threat here. If they are training any units, target that building first. Once you have completely destroyed the base, head back to the strategic point on the road. Once again, prepare for battle. Follow the road toward the west into another Eldar base. They may have a Prisom Cannon or Gravtank, but nothing that will cause much trouble. Once again, destroy any buildings that are training units first, and then destroy anything else you want. Now I like to skip destroying the rest of the maps Webway gates and head straight toward the end of the level. Head to the North West part of the map with the Slag Deposit. There are a few buildings there, but nothing to worry about. Be sure to get some Servitors to accompany you for an outpost. Get to work on capturing the strategic point right away and capping it off. Work on a Chapel-Barracks for building more Space Marine squads and Sacred Artifact to build Apothecarys. Once you are ready to start an offense, head toward the strategic point to the north east. There may be a Spiritwalker to deal with there. Once youíre ready to start the main battle in the level, head north east. There are quite a few Spirit Walkers and misc. Eldar squads. I would target Dark Reapers and Spiritwalkers first. They are the main threat to you. I would skip Guardians there and focus on Webway Gates. If you do not destroy them, they will reinforce the Eldar. Now just destroy all buildings in the area and you will win. --- Mission 7 - Sacrifice (S) Objectives: Capture the Monument Secondary Objectives: Gain Bridge Control Destroy the Avatar Secure Imperial Relics Review: I like this level. At the start you just tech up until you are able to stretch out. Then you make your way across the level capturing strategic points, then a huge battle happens, or you can skip it and beat it the easy way. Also a note you finally get Terminators and Orbital Bombardment ability, yay. Note: Do not capture the objective Strategic Point at the bridge. This is vital, trust me on this one. Once you start, start capturing both strategic points near your base. Get to work on an Armory with a Servitor, and start to work on another Servitor. Once he is complete, get him to work on a Plasma Generator. Now start building Listening Posts on both Strategic Points. Also start on the Monastery add-on. Get Engagement Research and Strengthen Power Grid research ASAP. I find the same setup as Level 5 work good. If the Avatar attacks while this is happening, use your Force Commander and Librarian as a damage decoy while the rest of your troops attack the Avatar itself. It will start retreating after about 1/3 of its health is damaged. If you meet it outside of your base, sometimes it will run for a bit, and then it will come back and sometimes be stupid enough not to even attack! The best way to finish him is to meet him outside of the base, since he will most likely attack after he retreats a bit. Once you have a decent army built up, I suggest you go to the south east Strategic Point and Relic first. A bit north east of the Strategic Point and directly north of the Relic is a pretty good amount of Eldar that are always there. Once you clear both of the places out, start on capturing them and get Listening Posts on them quickly. While all of this is happening, you probably will be attacked. Just a warning. I suggest you place a Heavy Bolter turret at the North West, that's where most of the attacks come from. Also upgrade Listening Posts with the Heavily Fortified Position add-on as soon as you can, this can help a lot. Also if you have a Machine Cult, Three to 4 Dreadnaughts are good for base defense until you are able to finish the Eldar base toward the end of this area. Once you are able, head toward the Slag Deposit and clear out the Eldar outpost there. Once it is destroyed, done build a Thermo Plasma Generator quite yet, there are some Rangers on the roof of a nearby building. If you haven't yet, capture the Strategic Point to the south east of the Slag Deposit and cap it off as soon as you can. Once that is done, head toward the Relic and clear any Eldar nearby. Once you capture the Relic, you are only 1 more away from Terminator! Now, follow the North West side of the map, along the way there will be multiple Ranger squads. Once you clear the whole path, including the rooftop Rangers, build the Thermo Plasma Generator and get to work on pumping out Land Speeder if you want to avoid a nearly impossible future battle. If you do not want to avoid it, start pumping out Dreadnaughts and equip them with Assault Cannons. No head to the final Relic and capture it. Once you capture it, you will be able to create Orbital Relay building, and Terminators. Start to work on the Terminators, 4 squads total. Send your troops to the south east, there is a Eldar base to destroy. Once the base is gone, destroy your Space Marine Squads and Deep Strike your Terminator Squads that are built so far to your Force Commander and Librarian. Equip all your Terminator squads with the Assault Cannon, it will rip any normal infantry to shreds. Now, you have two options up ahead. The extremely hard battle, or the easy way out. But first be sure to build a single Scout squad. Equip them with Sniper Rifles and head to the very south of the map, a Bonesinger will magically appear and start to build a base. If you do not deal with it now, it will be a problem later in the game. Hard: Max your Vehicle population with Dreadnaughts and equipped them all with the Assault Cannon. Move them all right next to the door at the bridge. Move all your Terminator Squads to the objective Strategic Point. Before you capture it, be sure you have an Orbital Relay building. Once youíre ready, capture the Strategic point and wait. Hold the point for 4 minutes (Which will be easy since there are no Eldar base left and only the occasional Warp Spider attack. Once the time is up, be sure to have your Scout squad attack the Bonesinger that was made at the south. A huge wave of attack will come across the bridge once the gates go down. Use the Dreadnaughts at the front line to absorb the damage, and dish their melee damage while they can. Use your Terminators to provide fire support. Be sure to use the Smite ability at the most crowded part of the enemy infantry. Also if there is a Spirit Walker, Prisom Tank or any other powerful unit coming toward you, cast Orbital Bombardment on them, this will REALLY help in my experience. And now all is left to hope you win and target the right units. Easy: Ah yes, the easy way. Gotta love it. All you needed to do is max Land Speeders and move them to the objective Strategic Point. Use their Jump ability to go over the both of the doors at the bridge. Now put your Servitors and the rest of your troops in the Orbital Relay and drop them on the other side of the bridge. Start building a base if you want and build a Machine Cults. Remember, if you lose Terminators, you can just Deep Strike them in. Now use your Land Speeders to keep pushing forward toward the final objective. Just keep pushing forward and kill the light resistance while destroying the Eldar base. Just keep working on the vehicle of your choice in case any of the Land Speeders die. Once you destroy the entire Eldar base, THEN capture the bridge Strategic Point. Easy huh? --- Mission 8 - The Chapel (TC) Objectives: Use vehicles to destroy the Chapel doors (You don't need to use vehicles) Stop the Chaos before they are able to release the key Reinforce the outpost before it is overwhelmed by Chaos forces Secondary Objectives: Cleanse the Chaos Taint at the chapel Review: I personally don't like this level, since you have to use Assault marines, and I don't really like them that much. Also the level itself is easy once you get rescue a base on the other side of the map. I want to note that now you are fighting Chaos troops. Most of their troops are Heavy Infantry, so now have at least 2 Plasma Guns in each squad. Once you start, order a Servitor to build a Chappel-Barracks, and build another Servitor. Order the newly built Servitor to build a Plasma Generator. Order the Assault Marines to capture the nearby Strategic Point. Then set waypoints for the other 3 closest waypoints near your base. Select your Force Commander, Librarian and Apothecary and put them into a group. Be sure to keep the Apothecary behind the Force Commander and Librarian. Make sure the enemies target them, then send him in to battle also. Once any Strategic Points are captured, be sure to cap them off with a Listening Post as quick as you can. Also work on an Armory and at least 1 more Plasma Generator. Start attacking the Strategic Point near the your base to the south east. There are only some Cultists, they are basically a meat shield (Says so in their description). Now head to the closest battle between Space Marine squad and Chaos Space Marine squads. Set your Force Commander and Librarian on Ranged stance, or else they may just spaz around. I think is because they try to find a path to them, and the AI can't find any. Also be sure to use Smite when you can. You may want to get Plasma Pistol upgrade, since it is good against the Bridge attackers. Be sure to keep the Apothecary out of range of the enemy. After a while, they may send in some Raptor Squads, be careful to keep your Apothecary out of the fray until they target your heros. Once the North bridge is clear, head to the South bridge to help out. The next good Strategic Point I think is the northern bridge Strategic Point. The next is the Relic near the south strategic point. The south west most has Chaos Space Marines there, that's why you should skip it for now. Once the South bridge is clear, clear the south west next. I would not capture it with your Assault Marines however. Build a Scout Squad to capture it. Jump over the South bridge with your Assault Marines and head straight for the Strategic Point at the base under attack at the south east of the map. Skip all of the enemies. Now I would take out one of your servitors at your base and build 3 at the outpost. Start repairing all of the Heavy Bolter turrets if they are damaged. Now make your Assault Marines capture the Strategic Points within the outpost. Once the Repairs are done, send one of your Servitors to build a Sacred Artifact, another to build a Chappel-Barracks, and the final one to build Thermo Plasma Generator. Get to work on upgrading all of the Listening Posts at your first base to Heavily Fortified Position add-on. Then get to work on the Fortress add-on. Once they are done, get to work on a Orbital Relay, and any Plasma Generators you want. I would recommend to start working on Dreadnaughts or Terminators. You already have 2 Machine Cult so you can save that money which is nice. Be sure to upgrade all of your Terminators and Dreadnaughts with the Assault Cannon upgrade. Once either group is ready, send them out to the objective marker, which are the Chappel doors. There are a lot of Chaos troops in the area. But it should not pose any threat to all of your troops. Be sure to the attack the Listening Posts along the way, but just skip capturing them, it's a waste of time. Once you finally reach the Chappel doors, do not attack them for right now. Head to the most north east Strategic Point. Then go a little east and the Imperial Guard will arrive, but they have betrayed you! Just mow them down with the Assault Cannons (Bwahahahaha). If you want to, attack the Chaos Base at the North West part of the map. It has about 14-20 Heavy Bolter turrets at the entrance, so be careful if your using infantry. I recommend building a few vehicles to destroy some of the Heavy Bolter turrets. Also the Force Commander's Orbital Bombardment to take out a few of them as well. Now order your Force Commander to start an Orbital Bombardment while your troops are attacking the Chappel doors. It should fall quickly. Then destroy any remaining Imperial Guard and Chaos forces nearby and you should win. At least I think so, since I have only beat this level once on Normal mode. Some reason each time the Imperial Gaurd should appear or when you get to the Chappel Doors, I get a Fatal Scar Error, or something like that. --- Mission 9 - Unholy Ceremony (UC) Review: A fairly easy map to beat. The hardest part get over once you beat the first Chaos base. It just takes a while to push toward the enemy base. Once all the bases are gone, then you need to capture 4 Relics. Also, once again you're fighting Chaos troops, so same setup as last time. Start to work on an Armory with your one of you Servitors, and send the other to work on a Plasma Generator. Also get to work on two Space Marine squads. Once the squads are done, get to work on both of the Strategic Points. Once you can, upgrade the Monastery add-on. Get to work on the Listening Posts as soon as you can and upgrade them. Move your squads to the east and start capture both of them. Build a Listening Post as soon as you can and get to work on some Heavy Bolters at each side. Once you have about 3-5 Heavy Bolter turrets at both, head to the south east and capture the Strategic Point there. Go back to your base and start working on 2 Space Marine squads. Also be sure to work on upgrading to a Fortress and getting upgrades at the Armory. Once you can, upgrade the Listening Posts to the east of your base with the Heavily Fortified Position add-on. Now group all of your troops together and start to move toward the other Strategic Points to the south east. Don't attack the Chaos base to the south of the southern most Relic yet, work toward the Thermo Plasma Generator for vehicles later on. On all of the strategic points on the way to the Slag Deposit and on the Slag Deposit itself, be sure to build about 5 Heavy Bolter turrets to protect them. Your Force Commander will make landfall with one Terminator squad, a few scouts and a few Servitors. I would basically ignore them, I have never been able to save them on Insane mode. Your Force Commander will just keep dropping in when he dies, he will be able to destroy the troops there. Also head to the Strategic Point to the North West, there is another building there besides the Listening Post, destroy it. And if you do decide to capture a Relic early on, use Orbital Bombardment on the Chaos base a little north east of the northern most Relic. Once all of this is done, start pushing toward the southern Chaos base. There are not that many troops there, the main threat is Defilers. Now there is an inner ring of area at the center of the map. There is at least 2, maybe 3 Chaos Temple, destroy them quickly, this will really help while in the area. Once you have destroyed all of the buildings in the ring, start on the Relics. It does not matter if you capture one right now. It takes time and it's fairly far into the game by now so it wouldn't make much of a difference. Once all of the Relics garrisons are destroyed, head to the area a little north east of the northern most Relic. There is a Chaos base there, and it is a bit harder than the southern Chaos base that you destroyed. Once again, the main threat at the base is the Defilers. Now that all of the Chaos buildings are gone, you are free to capture the Relics. Once all of them are captured, it will say you need to hold them for four minutes. So hard now that all of the Chaos buildings are gone. Once the barrier to the enemy is gone, your Librarian betrays you and goes Chaos. --- Mission 10 - Old Friend (OF) Objectives: Destroy all of the Chaos Forces Destroy the traitorous Librarian Isador Secondary Objectives: None Review: I believe this level is fairly easy. Once you start, you can capture about 6 or 7 Strategic Points before any enemy attacks. Your first attack will be by an Avatar Chaos equivalent unit. Like I said, you fight Chaos, so use Plasma Guns this game. Once you start, build another Servitor then upgrade the Monastery add-on at your Stronghold. Then get to work on another Space Marine squad. Send your current one to the north west of your base and get to work on capturing the Strategic Point. Once the other Space Marine squad is finished, capture the Strategic Point at your base. Set waypoints for your first Space Marine squad to capture the Strategic Points at the north west part of the map. Select your other Space Marine squad and set up some waypoints to capture the other two Strategic Points on the way to the south point of the map. While doing all of this, be sure to build at least 2 Plasma Generators. There are no Slag Deposits so you have to rely on Plasma Generators alone. Also be sure to cap off any Strategic Points you capture right away. Once you have captured all of the strategic points at the south west area of the map, move back to your base. Get to work on 3 Heavy Bolter turrets at your base's Strategic Point. Also get the Escalated Engagement Research and Strengthen Electrical Grid Research as soon as you can. An Avatar like Chaos unit called Bloodthirster will attack soon, so be ready. Once he comes, be sure to make him attack your Force Commander or Inquisitor, they both are good against him. He is not that hard, I thought he was easier than the Avatar (I haven't compared their stats yet). It's probably the Inquisitor is strong against Daemons and has a stronger melee attack than the Librarian. Once he is gone, be sure to work on getting a Fortress, that means a Sacred Artifact and a Machine Cult. Once you are done with one the buildings, start toward the Relic. Once you reach it, clear off the Listening Post and start capturing it. Once the other building at your base is complete, start on the Fortress, then move both Servitors toward the Relic. As soon as it is done, cap it off with a Listening Post. Build Heavy Bolters all around the Relic to defend it. Once the Heavy Bolters turrets are done, send the Servitors to your base and get to work on an Orbital Relay. There is a ring of Strategic Points on the map. Send your Space Marine squads to the west most Strategic Point in the outer rim of the ring. If you got to the right Strategic Point, you will be on a bridge. Destroy the Listening Post there and start capturing it. Once it's captured, send your Servitors to there and build Heavy Bolter turrets. This is one of three main entry to your side of the map. One of the others is north east of the Relic, which is one reason why I said to build so Heavy Bolter turrets. The other is on another bridge, but it's harder to build defenses there. Now I would get to work on 4 groups of Assault Marines at your base. Destroy your Space Marine squads to make enough population space for them. Assault Marines are slow, so you should counter that with some fast troops. That means Land Speeders. I find them really useful on this map (Well, all maps). Your base can be attacked from 3 main points, and the Land Speeders can get to those points in case it's under attack. But I mostly use them to destroy the Listening Posts on the map, it can really help out in the long run. Once your Terminator squads are complete, move them to the bridge you control. Once there, head toward one of two of the main Chaos bases. It is at the North West part of the map. There are two strategic points at the edge, there are other two strategic points a little south east of them, that's where the base is at. While attacking, get your Land Speeders to attack all of the strategic points besides the ones near the Relic, there is Heavy Bolter turrets and Chaos troops there. I would strike first at the south east edge, there is a Chaos base there with no Heavy Bolters to injure your Land Speeders. By now the Terminators should have destroyed the base, send them to the final Chaos base, the other Relic. While attacking, the Traitor Librarian Isador will attack your troops. He poses no real threat. Use your Assault Marines to attack other targets while your Force Commander and Inquisitor attack the traitor. Once the Land Speeders destroy all of the buildings, move them out to help out your Assault Marines. Now just clear the rest of the buildings on the map. Once they are all gone, volaah! You win. --- Mission 11 - All Out War (AOW) Objectives: Kill the Daemon Prince Secondary Objectives: None Review: The final level. This can either be easy or really hard. It depends how the beginning of the level plays out. If the Eldar provide a good distraction instead of dying, it's fairly easy to capture strategic points and get a good hold on the map. If they die at first (Normally happens if you don't provide cover for them), it can be hard. Once you start, start on another Servitor and send your Force Commander and Inquisitor toward your Dreadnaught. Move all of your Space Marine squads down toward your Dreadnaught also, and start on Assault Cannon upgrade. Make sure the enemies focus on attacking the Dreadnaught or your Force Commander/Inquisitor. If they start on a Space Marine squad, start moving them behind other troops. You should upgrade the Listening post north of your Dreadnaught ASAP. While all of this is happening, build another Plasma Generator. There is a Slag Deposit near your base, so you do not need to build any more Plasma Generators besides that one. As soon as you can, send the Dreadnaught to the strategic point on the north east side of map. This is the main point where the Chaos forces attack the Eldar. It's good to defend them, so they provide as a distraction for the Chaos forces. Also I should note that you are mainly fighting Chaos forces once again, this means get Plasma Guns once again. I would take four of the six Space Marine squads as your main force. Send the main force to the strategic point North West of your base. Then send the other part of your forces to the north east of your base at the other strategic point. Capture both of them and cap them off with Listening Posts as soon as possible. Send your main troops toward the Relic toward the north west of them. Once there, start capturing it right away. With the secondary troops, move them toward the Slag Deposit at the south east part of the map. Send your Servitors there right away. There are no enemies there, but they can come, that's why you should have cover for your builders. I normally do not build any Heavy Bolter turrets there. Your Relic should be captured by now, cap it off with a Listening Post. Also build some Heavy Bolter turrets there too. Now head your Servitors back toward the base to start on a Machine Cult. Get some more Dreadnaughts to help out your current one at the Eldar base. They will also help kill the Daemon Prince later. Go to the next strategic point which is toward the north west of the Relic. That strategic point is also near the enemy's base, which you will target next. While capturing the strategic point, send your other troops north of the Slag Deposit and start capturing that strategic point as well. Once your main forces capture the strategic point, and their fully equipped, start out toward the Chaos base. It should not have many, if none, troops to defend it. While all of this is going on, be sure to keep building more Dreadnaughts. Also be sure to be working on buildings like a Sacred Artifact, Fortress, Orbital Relay, Listening Posts, and maybe another Machine Cult. Once you can, get to work on Terminators, and get the same setup, two Assault Cannons. Once you have four Terminator squads, and ten Dreadnaughts, move all of your troops toward the strategic point east of the northern Slag Deposit. Be sure to group all of your troops before heading out toward the Daemon Prince. Send your Dreadnaughts in on Assault stance, followed by your Terminator squads on ranged stance. Once you reach the Daemon Prince, he may seem hard since his stats are better than a Avatar and Bloodthirster, but when you fought those, you didn't have four Terminators or 10 Dreadnaughts. He should fall quickly enough. Once he does fall, you win! --------------------------------------------------- 2.00 General Walkthrough Strategies - (GWS) --------------------------------------------------- Steal that point!: Always be sure to at least remove it the strategic points from enemy control. It only takes about 1.5-2 seconds long, and it can help. Cap 'em: Be sure to always cap off a strategic point with a Listening Post. Fortify the points: Always upgrade the strategic points. Get that Research!: Be sure to get Escalated Engagement Research and Strengthen Electrical Grid research right away. Heros are Expendable: The death of your heros comes at no penalty. If one of your heros are low on health, just hit Delete to kill them and they will be fully healed. This also fully recharges their special abilities. Tech up: Always get on the higher tech level.
