DoW II has bravely sacrificed one of the genre's sacred calves... which is a long-winded way of saying that there's no base building. At the start of a mission you'll find yourself in charge of a small number of Blood Raven Space Marine squads. You may or may not have chosen exactly which units are deployed, but either way it'll be up to you to complete your objectives. Resource management is handled exclusively through the capturing of command points dotted around the map.
Some of these will replenish the health of your squads (replacing troopers who have fallen in battle) and unlock support commands like airstrikes, while others will provide you with intelligence on missions you have yet to fight.
