Video Battle Report: Battlefleet Gothic

My brother visited me this weekend, and suggested we'd try a game of Battlefleet Gothic. We used to play this classic game back in the days (at least 5 years ago), and we loved it.

After a few trips to the attic, I had finally found all the ships and scenery. We were ready to play!

We really didn't want to play a standard "kill more ships than your opponent"-match, so we agreed on the orks having to destroy a space station. The Orks would have half as many points to use on ships than the Imperials, so this was a 1000 points vs 2000 points game.

As you can see from the video, the game was grossly unbalanced towards one side. At the end, we discussed ways to make it a more balanced scenario. This discussion is in Norwegian only. Apologies to all you guys who don't speak Norwegian. I know there's a lot of you. Basically we were thinking on reducing the victorious fleet by 30 - 50 %, or placing more terrain to make it a bit more interesting.

The music in the video is from the soundtrack from the movie Π (Pi), by Clint Mansell.

How do you play Battlefleet Gothic at your club? Do you just line up equal points of ships, or do you focus on objective based missions?
