Voltaire is a coastal city on the planet of Vesper, the Imperial stronghold of the Vega Ultima star system.  While some of the buildings within the city have incurred battle damage, most are in pristine condition.  The Voltaire power plant is a prototype factory that combines the use of Imperial and alien technologies.  The power plant is critical to Imperial operations because it supplies energy to most of the planet.  The facility is located between two famous landmarks.  On one side of the power plant, the Chateau Penitencier (a castle that serves as the city prison-house) looms high above the surrounding buildings.  On the opposite side of the power plant, the illustrious Chapelle Souterrain (an underground cathedral) houses one of the Imperium’s most sacred relics.  The city rests in the care and auspices of the Steel Fists chapter of the Imperial Space Marines, and is supported by local units of the Imperial Guard.  Unknown by the city’s founders, Voltaire was built some thousand years ago atop a Necron graveyard.

If you intend to play this map as scripted, you will need to use “fixed” starting positions.  Players 1 and 2 should be Imperial forces (Space Marines, Sisters of Battle, or Imperial Guard).  Players 3 and 4 should be Necron forces.

This map is designed for up to 4 players.  It is suitable for team-play or for a free-for-all battle against live opponents.  It is also suitable for a single player to fight against the computer AI.  It is designed so that you can use any combination of victory objectives desired.  Although scripted to include Imperial and Necron armies, the map is designed so that you can use any combination of armies you prefer.  The map is large, 512 x 512 in size.  The map contains a total of 2 relics, 3 critical locations, 18 slag deposits, and 40 strategic points.
