Deep Striking Campaign Rules (3): Planetstrike Campaign

Planetstrike campaigns can take place on any world. The first mission in a Planetstrike campaign is the Battlefleet Gothic mission Planetary Assault. How well players do in this first mission influences latter games in two ways: 1) the attacker landing more assault points decreases the number of bastions and strategem points available to the defender, and 2) the attacker landing more assault points increases the number of strategem points available to the attacker. The size of the Planetary Assault game, as well as the orbital defenses and number of attacker's transports is determined by the type of planet being attacked. 

After the first mission, play the missions in the following order, declaring a victor after one player has 4 victories, in accordance with the "Best of 7" concept.
