If your into long campaigns for a planet you've never even heard of then I recommend it for you. Planet strike is actually many types of games in one which allows you to mobilize your entire army in a castle breach type of game. The first game in the campaign (its basically a well develloped scroll campaign) which is called planet fall.
Planetfall is the initial attack upon the planets defences, in other words DDay 40 k style. Of course you get stratagems which give your army a so called one up on the enemy. Attacker gets firestorm, which is literally d6 +3 large blast markers of s9 ap3 death from raining fire. Basically picture the movie Armageddon when the asteroids hit Singapore.
It's actually a very wise investment, the game makes you completely rethink your strategy. My strategy originally consisted of an entrapment spear head tactic. Heavy troops follow up the rear as drop pods fall behind enemy lines, I had to change my strategy by employing heavy defense positions
