If you want to have a battle that means something, play out a large force battle against another large force. The battlefield is a mining industrial complex with large crystals scattered here and there with some mining equipment. One side, the attacker, the Paladins and the other side defending will be the Wyrm. Paladins would be heavily armored human types like Space Marines. The Wyrm can be any hive minded alien type. The Paladins will get a 20% point bonus reserve army that will start arriving during turn 2. The game, of course, will be best played using AEON2 rules, but any rule system will suffice.
