SIN OF DAMNATION
The chance sighting of a hulk, apparently inert, and drifting through real space, was
the rst since a disastrous Blood Angel engagement over six hundred years ago.
The hulk was spotted by the warpship Windrush who was exploring the edge of the
Segmentum Obscura. Its captain approached the hulk but, fortunately for the
Imperium, decided against a boarding action. Instead, he returned to human space,
and notied Battleeet Obscura.
From the Windrush's data, the vessel was conclusively identied as a Genestealer-
infested space hulk and code-named Sin of Damnation. Like its predecessor, the
vessel was still dormant, relying on its near invisibility to escape detection. Like all
hulks, the Sin of Damnation was a unique combination of technologies. The ship's
origins could span galaxies and hundreds of millennia. Intact, it could yield
enormous value to the Imperium.
Three Gothic class battlecruisers were despatched to investigate - the Intolerance,
the Indestructability and the Righteous Power. As the ships travelled towards the hulk
an astropathic request for help was broadcast, which was promptly answered by the
Blood Angels. Their First Company was on its way back to Baal, and could easily
make a diversion.
The Blood Angels arrived a few hours after the Imperial ships, and the commanders
immediately held a conference on the agship, Intolerance. It was decided to attempt
a boarding action, and, if this failed, the hulk would be fusion bombed down to a
ne powder by the three Imperial battlecruisers.
The rst stage of the operation was a thorough scan. To avoid alerting the dormant
Genestealers, this had to rely on less e!ective, passive sensors. As such a scan
could only pick up details of the vessels peripheral areas, an autonomous Cyber-
Altered Task (recon) Unit (C.A.T.) was teleported to the outer decks. The unit would
move down into the vessels inner levels and would analyse the hulks computer
systems. Once the data were gathered, the C.A.T. was programmed to return to the
outer decks for retrieval.
The passive scan showed the hulk to be every bit as vast as the one attacked six
hundred years earlier. Inside was a seemingly random distribution of rooms and
corridors, linking clusters of motors, cryogenic chambers, life support systems and
maintenance functions.
It was estimated that the ship contained in excess of 42.000 dormant Genestealers.
Even the entire Chapter of the Blood Angels could not hope to destroy even a
fraction of this force. The Marines only hope lay in the fact that the bulk of the
aliens seemed to take some time to come out of hibernation.
A rst wave of one hundred Marines was launched. Their objective was either to
disable the cryogenics, or to introduce lethal toxins into the chambers, killing the
Genestealers as they were re-activated. Only when this was achieved would the
remainder of the Chapter be sent on board...

MISSION ONE: SUICIDE MISSION
Mere seconds before the Chapter's vanguard crashed aboard the vessel, the rst wide
spectra scans were made. The ship was bombarded with a ash of radiation, giving the rst
detailed views of its inner layout. The initial analysis located a number of escape-pod
clusters, dotted around the vessel's outer levels.
In an earlier engagement, large numbers of Genestealers
had attempted to escape into space. To avoid this
danger, the attendant Battlecruisers were equipped for a
light pattern bombing of the surrounding space, should
any vessel appear to be escaping. This would have little
impact on the Hulk but would hamper the Marines'
command structure.
The largest escape cluster was situated well beyond the
defensive perimeter, in the centre of several larger,
cryogenic clusters. Any squad moving into the area was
unlikely to re-appear, but nonetheless an attack was
launched.
Objectives
The Marine player is attempting to deliver a flamer hit on
the Launch Control Room (A). The Genestealer player is
attempting to keep the Marine player from doing this.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has one squad. It consists of
a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword,
one Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and three
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the game
with two Blips counters in the entry areas of his choice.
The Genestealer player receives one reinforcement Blip per
turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Squad deploys on the marked corridor
(Marine Entry Square) as shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player may place his
starting force and subsequent reinforcements at the
entry areas shown on the map.
Victory
Marines: The Marine player wins by scoring a flamer hit
at any square in the Launch Control Room (A). The
moment he scores the hit, he wins and the game ends.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player wins the moment
he kills the Flamer Marine, or if the heavy flamer runs out
of ammunition before firing into the Launch Control
Room (A).

MISSION TWO: EXTERMINATE
Provided the rst wave succeeded, the objectives of the projected second stage were: to
completely seal all escape routes, neutralise the ships realspace motors, and seize control of
its control rooms. Once these objectives were achieved the Marines would move out to take
control of the rest of the vessel.
Most of the objectives were grouped towards the rear of
the vessel, in the lower numbered sectors, conveniently
away from the bulk of the cryogenic clusters. The largest
group in the first wave landed here, and attempted to
establish a beachhead.
The ship's layout was, by now, thoroughly analysed. The
likely routes for an alien advance had all been plotted.
The first enemy attacks would be delivered from the
closest cryogenic cluster, a mere kilometre away from the
landing area.
A key junction along this route would effectively block
the route. Marines were ordered to the junction, three
hundred metres beyond the projected perimeter
defences. Here, it was hoped, they could cover the
beachhead area by slowing down the rate of enemy
reinforcement.
Whatever their vessel's command structure, the aliens
had the intelligence to devote their full attention to the
dormant Genestealers in the closest cryogenic cluster.
These emerged in a surprisingly short time, and streamed
down the predicted pathway. The advancing Marines
reached the junction and spread out to check the nearby
rooms for unspotted aliens. The sweep was finished with
only seconds to spare. By the time the Marines reported
the area secure, several hundred Genestealers were
converging on their position.
The Marines were outnumbered by over sixty to one.
Even before they closed into combat it was obvious that
it was only a matter of minutes before they were wiped
out. Despite the overwhelming odds, they fought with
courage and valour. Any Genestealer casualties won time
to construct the defensive perimeter. This would be
extremely precious to the main force at the beachhead.
Objectives
The Marine Squad is clearly doomed. It is only a matter of
time before it is destroyed by the numberless forces of
the rampaging Genestealers. To a man, the Marines have
one overriding desire: to take out as many Genestealers
as they can before they go down. The Genestealers
merely wish to destroy the Marines with minimal
casualties.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has one squad. It consists of
a Sergeant armed with thunder hammer and storm
shield, one Marine armed with an assault cannon, one
Marine armed with storm bolter and chain fist, and two
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player has no starting
forces, but receives two reinforcement Blips per turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine Squad begins play dispersed. In
turn, the Marine and Genestealer players place one
Marine in any space, with any facing, in any of the rooms
(Marine Starting Room) marked on the map. No two
Marines may begin play in the same room; the Marine
player places first.
Genestealers: The Genestealer reinforcements may
enter play at any entry area.
Special Rules
Blips and Genestealers are not allowed to lurk off-board,
nor are they allowed to use an entry area that is within
six spaces of a Marine. If, at the end of the Genestealer
player's turn, any Genestealers or Blips are lurking off-
board, they are automatically lost (though the Marine
doesn't count them towards victory; see below). In the
unlikely event that the Marines manage to block all entry
areas, the Genestealers lose immediately.
The Marine player needs a pen and paper to record the
number of Genestealers he kills. The easiest way to do
this is to place all casualties in the box tray as they occur,
total up the number at the end of the Genestealer
player's turn, and then return the models to the
Genestealer player. Note that Flamed Blips count as
however many Genestealers they represent, but the
Marine player does not count Genestealer models lost
because Blips converted in places where they could not
deploy into their full number of models.
Victory
The Marine player wins if he kills 30 Genestealers before
his Squad is destroyed; otherwise, the Genestealer player
wins.

MISSION THREE: RESCUE
As the Marines moved into position, the Cyber-Altered Task (C.A.T.) unit had e"ortlessly
invaded the Hulk's arcane command systems, in the vulnerable period while they were being
powered up. Within seconds of impact it had amassed all the data it required on the Hulk's
cryogenic systems, both their layout and their security
The C.A.T. stored this information, disengaged from the computer net and, as programmed,
began carefully working its way towards the outer decks. As soon as the C.A.T. started
moving, it was located by the continuing wide spectra analysis.
Two whole companies were despatched to retrieve the
unit. They advanced from the perimeter, behind the
cover of the embattled outer squads, and away from the
growing Genestealer concentration. They made very
good progress. The companies encountered very light
resistance and capably obliterated it without casualties.
When they were within two sectors of the C.A.T., the first
major resistance was encountered. A large concentration
of enemies was advancing against the flank of the
Marines' line of advance. One squad, moving faster
because it was alone, was ordered to fetch the C.A.T. The
remainder of the force turned to form a defensive
position, and wipe out the approaching Genestealers.
Contact with the C.A.T. was made with relative ease, but
the Genestealers closing around the two computers
defensive base looked like they might cut the squad off.
When more Genestealers appeared to attack the isolated
squad it seemed the Genestealers had realised the C.A.T's
significance, and were merely containing the larger force.
The whole invasion seemed in the balance.
One squad was ordered to break out and reinforce the
returning squad. As the two squads moved towards each
other, the surrounding aliens launched their attack. If the
C.A.T. was lost, Captain Raphael would have no choice
but to order the nuclear bombardment.
Objectives
The Marines must retrieve the C.A.T. and bring it safely
back to the drop ship.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an assault
cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter and chain
fist, and two Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: No forces at the start of play, but three
Blips per turn as reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: One Squad begins in either or both of the
marked corridor sections labelled 'A' ; the other begins in
either or both of the marked corridor sections labelled 'B'.
One of the Marines in corridor section 'A' is carrying the
C.A.T. (see below).
Genestealers: The Genestealer reinforcements may be
brought in at any of the Genestealer entry areas.
Special Rules
The C.A.T.
The C.A.T.: Place the C.A.T. figure in the space with the
Marine who is carrying it. The C.A.T. is assumed to take
up no space in the square: a square with the C.A.T. in it
may be moved into or through as normal. In addition,
the C.A.T. does not block LOS. If a door is closed on a
square containing the C.A.T. by itself, roll a dice to see
which adjacent square the C.A.T. goes to.
Carrying the C.A.T.: A Marine may carry the C.A.T.
with no penalty to movement, fire, or close assault.
Picking up the C.A.T.: A Marine entering a square with
the C.A.T. can pick it up for 1 AP. A Marine may choose
to drop the C.A.T. in a square as it moves, leaving the
C.A.T. behi nd as he moves on. A Mari ne wi l l
automatically drop the C.A.T. when he is killed.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the
C.A.T. but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the C.A.T.
must leave it behind if it moves on.
Moving the C.A.T. on its Own: When the C.A.T. is not
being carried by a Marine during an End Phase, roll a
dice: on a 1-3 the Genestealer player moves the C.A.T. ;
on a 4-6, the Marine player moves it. The C.A.T. moves up
to three spaces; it pays nothing to turn. The C.A T. may
move into or through occupied spaces; it may not,
however, move into a space with a closed door or into a
burning corridor section.
Victory
The Marine player wins if he gets the C.A.T. off the map
through one of the exit points marked X on the map.
Otherwise, the Genestealer player wins.

MISSION FOUR: CLEANSE AND BURN
With the arrival of Tech Marine support squads, several key points along the beachhead
perimeter were reinforced, and the Marine squads provided with vast stockpiles of
ammunition. Marines with Assault Cannon covered all the important junctions. Each squad
had access to its own vast ammunition stockpile.
When the Genestealers launched the attack on the
Marine defence perimeter, all hell broke loose. The
fighting was intense, vicious, brutal and bloody. The
warriors of both sides fought with fanatical zeal, and
total disregard for their own lives. After the engagement,
it was estimated that well over a thousand Genestealers
were involved in the attack. Even with constant re-supply
by their Tech Marines, the Marines suffered massive
problems with ammunition shortages and weapons
failures. All their reserves were committed, including the
Tech Marines. In the event, the attack was repulsed, but
only just. The Marines suffered over 50% casualties.
As the Genestealer attack finally subsided, the
overstretched command back-up noticed something
strange. A group of Tech Marines, showing almost zero
life signs, seemed to be moving, away from the
perimeter. The Marines were alive, although only just.
Although Captain Raphael had very little time and, as
few as thirty Marines left, he knew that the Chapter's
Gene Seed could not be allowed to fall into enemy
hands. He also realised the possible diversionary value of
their operation.
Captain Raphael re-organised his remaining forces into six
full squads. Four of these were assigned to the cryogenic
attack, while two were despatched to deal with the
wounded Marines.
These two squads had neither the time nor the numbers
to attempt to rescue the Tech Marines. Even if they had,
the beachhead perimeter was being abandoned, there
was nowhere safe to guard the wounded. Captain
Raphael decided that the Tech Marines would have to be
sacrificed. The two squads were ordered to locate them,
and quickly put them out of their misery.
Objectives
The Tech Marine captives are being held in two rooms,
those labelled 'Gene Banks' on the map. To kill the
captives and protect the Chapter's gene seed, the
Marines must 'cleanse' each room by hitting it with a
flamer shot or by firing two shots from the assault
cannon into the room. The assault cannon may target an
empty square in order to achieve this objective.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: No forces at the start of the game. The
Genes t eal er s r ec ei ve t wo Bl i ps per t ur n as
reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: Each of the Squads must deploy on one of the
two marked corridors shown on the Map.
Genestealers: Reinforcements may be brought in at
any of the entry areas shown on the map.
Special Rules
When one of the target rooms takes a Flamer hit or two
assault gun hits, it has been cleansed. To show this, put a
Flamer marker face-down on the room during the End
Phase. The face-down marker has no effect on play: it
just serves as a reminder that the room has been purged.
Victory
The Marine player wins by cleansing both Gene Banks
(X). The Genestealer player wins if the Marine carrying
the heavy flamer and the Marine carrying the assault
cannon are killed or run out of ammunition before
achieving their objective.

MISSION FIVE: DECOY
The ducting cluster identied by the C.A.T. was in a room more than four sectors away from
the Marine's beachhead. The rst wave was left with almost no reserves. Although the
struggle along the perimeter was a pageant of acts of courage, valour, strength, e!ciency
and heroic slaughter, the forces thrown against it required the Marines to commit their
entire reserve. Although this vast wave attack had been stemmed, and the invaders wiped
out, the Marines were forced to abandon the perimeter, form an outward facing circle, and
advance through extremely light opposition towards the target area.
As they moved it became obvious that a second wave,
much larger than the first, was beginning to emerge
from its cryogenic slumber. Surveillance from the
command module assessed this second force as having a
strength of 4.000, while the remaining 30.000 or more
Genestealers were commencing their recovery cycles.
By the time they were within two sectors of the target
room, the Marine phalanx was down to slightly less than
22 Marines. The area around the target room was,
apparently by coincidence, occupied by a relatively strong
enemy force. A frontal assault would be costly and time
consuming. Victory seemed once more to be slipping
through the Marines' grasp.
The order was issued to sacrifice almost half of the
remaining Marines for a decoy action. If they could draw
enough of the enemy away, the room could easily be
taken. If they could keep going long enough they would
buy precious seconds for the cryogenic attack.
Objectives
The Marines are attempting to reach a nearby cryogenics
cluster (X) just to the south of the sectors shown on the
map, both to destroy the several thousand Genestealers
interned within before they can activate, and to draw off
Genestealers from the real target of the assault.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins play with
three Blips. He receives two reinforcements per turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one full Squad on
each of the marked corridor sections shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player's starting forces
and reinforcements may arrive at any of the entry areas
he chooses.
Special Rules
A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the map at the exit
point (X). Once exited, a Marine is out of play. He cannot
re-enter the map.
Victory
The Marine player wins by moving a total of five Marines
off of the map through the exit point (X) shown on the
map.

MISSION SIX: DEFEND
Once the Genestealers had been drawn o", the last two squads were able to move into
position in the target room. From detailed evaluation of the data from the task unit, it was
decided to attempt the toxin attack, rather than trying to power down the cryogenics.
The toxin used, had been tested on the pure
Genestealers captured while escaping, after the earlier
Blood Angels' engagement. The poison was utterly lethal
to humans in even almost undetectable doses. When
tested on Genestealers it was found that a dose more
than 100 times higher was required to cause death.
From experiments on the captives, it was observed that
the dosage was critical. If the full dose was not not
achieved, the toxin appeared to have no impact on the
Genestealer. When the full dose was administered, the
alien died instantly.
Because of the large dose required, the contamination
would take several minutes. The tanks were placed in line
on the ducting, and the contamination process was
begun. Immediately this happened the Genestealers were
alerted to the danger. All their active forces began
moving towards room 123-Alpha-6.
Both sides were aware of what was about to happen. If
the Marines could keep the aliens at bay long enough,
the vast bulk of the re-awakening Genestealers would be
wiped out before they even left their cryogenic
chambers. If one single Genestealer could make it to the
ducts it would be disaster. The ducts were thin and
fragile. A single rent would dissipate the toxin, saving the
dormant Genestealers.
As the last two squads moved to form a defensive
cordon, they picked up readings of the Genestealers
massing against them. As the last Marine moved into
position, there was complete silence across the com-net.
The final act of the first wave had begun.
Objectives
The Marines must defend the Control Room (X) until all
of the toxins have been released into the cryogenic
atmosphere circulation system. If they keep the
Genestealers from destroying the fragile ducting, before
the toxins have been released, all of the hibernating
Genestealers will be destroyed as they awaken. Then all
that will be left is the mopping-up of the several
thousand already active Genestealers.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and two Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield. a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter and
chain fist, one Marine armed with storm bolter and a
Marine with lightning claws.
Genestealers: Two Blips. Each turn two Blips arrive as
reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player is allowed to set up his men
anywhere on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player may bring on his
Blips at any of the entry areas.
Special Rules
Duration: The game ends at the end of the turn that
the stack of Blips runs out for the second time.
Weapon Limitations: Because of the danger of
breaching the ducts, the flamer or assault cannon may
not be fired into or out of the Control Room (X) or the
adjacent corridor. If one is fired, the game ends
immediately as a Genestealer victory.
Victory
To win, a Genestealer must enter the Control Room and
attack the northern wall (the one the furthest from the
door) in close assault combat as if it were a door. If the
Genestealer rolls a 6, it has breached the ducts, and the
Genestealers win. If the Marines keep this from
happening until the stack of Blips runs out for the second
time, they win.

MISSION SEVEN: PITFALL
The Space Marines succesfully deployed the toxin into the Genestealers cryogenics system,
wiping out roughly 30.000 of the monsters. All that remained was mopping up the survivors.
The Marines were carrying out a sweep of the landing
area, when surviving Genestealers launched an attack.
Though the attack was beaten off at heavy cost to the
Genestealers, five Marines were cut off. They tried to
fight their way back but were repulsed. The squad was
forced to retreat into the bowels of the massive ship.
Not wishing to risk further loss of life after the battle was
won, they decided to seek an alternative route to their
comrades.
Objectives
The Marines are near a disposal chute, designed to vent
garbage into the reaches of space. If they can get to the
chute and dive into it, they will exit the hulk and can
make their way back to the assault torpedoes, entering
via external airlocks.
The Genestealers are attempting to destroy the Marines
before they escape.
Forces
Marines: One squad consisting of a Librarian armed
with a storm bolter and force axe, a Sergeant armed with
a storm bolter and power sword, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, a Marine armed with a storm bolter
and a Marine with lightning claws.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with a total
of 18 Genestealers for the first 10 turns - see the Special
Rules for how these are chosen. They come on as a
starting force of 2 Blips plus 2 Blips reinforcements per
turn for the first 10 turns.
On the 11th and subsequent turns, the Genestealer gets
3 Blips per turn as reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys his Squad on the
marked corridor shown on the upper level of the map.
Genestealers: During turns 1 to 10, the Blips may be
placed on any of the entry areas on the lower level
From turn 11 onwards, Genestealer reinforcements may
be placed at any of the entry areas on the upper level -
Blips may no longer enter on the lower level.
Special Rules
Ladders: Place the six ladder counters in the squares
indicated on the map. Ladders with the same letter are
connected to each other.
The two ladder squares are assumed to be adjacent to
each other, and a model standing on one is allowed to
shoot or close assault a model on the other just as if they
were standing in adjacent squares to each other's front.
It costs a Genestealer 1 AP and a Space Marine 2 APs to
move from a ladder square on one board to the
corresponding ladder square on the other.
Roll a dice when a Space Marine enters a square that
contains a ladder going down (including when he climbs
up from the level below). On a roll of 1 the Space Marine
falls down to the space below. The Space Marine
maintains his facing, but loses any action points he may
have had remaining at the time that he fell (command
points may be used to perform extra actions as normal).
Any model in the square below is destroyed.
Disposal Chutes: Any Marine that steps into the
disposal chute is immediately removed from play - he has
dropped into space and escaped from the ship.
Genestealer Forces: Before the start of the game, the
Genestealer player chooses any number of Blips totalling
18 Genestealers. Once he has chosen the Blips, they are
all mixed together and the drawn out at random as usual
- the player doesnt get to choose waht order the blips
come on in.
As the Genestealer player gets 2 starting Blips plus 2 Blips
per turn for the first 10 turns, he wont have enough
Blips for all 10 turns (even if he took 18 Blips each of 1
Genestealer). Once the Blips run out, he gets no more
reinforcements until the 11th turn. If he wants, he can
opt to take only one or even no Blips for one or more
turns to spread the forces out over a longer period.
At the start of the 11th turn, mix together all the Blips
that arent in play, including any that have already been
converted and any that havent been played yet. From
now on, the Genestealer player gets 3 Blips each turn
from this pool.
Victory
The marine player wins if he gets two or more Marines
into the disposal chute.
The Genestealer player wins if he kills all the Marines.
If only one Marine escapes, the game is a draw.

Deathwing: Broken Knifes Duty
52
DEATHWING
The commanding o"cer of Deathwing, the newly-renamed Marine company of the
Dark Angels, inspected the squad in the boarding torpedo with reserved pride.
A small battered transport ship, codenamed The Spore, had dropped out of warp
space less than a week ago and recently had drifted into the fringes of space the
Chapter's ship was patrolling.
A preliminary reconnaissance team had returned over two hours ago. The news they
brought back was horrible, but not unexpected: the ship was overrun with
Genestealers.
The Marines' primary assault wave met with heavy opposition, but eventually a
bridgehead was established. The secondary wave landed and, without sustaining
serious casualties, advanced through the bridgehead to form a perimeter of defence.
Intelligence began pouring in. The rst Cyber-Altered Task (C.A.T.) units, sent back
information conrming the commanding o"cer's fears - total decontamination of
the ship would be nearly impossible. All available data suggested that the total
annihilation of the ship was the most prudent course of action.
The commander realised, however, that if the Marines could obtain a copy of the
ship's log, the Inquisition would be able to retrace the course of the ship and
investigate all planets along that route as possible sites of contamination.
Intelligence reports suggested that the likelihood of such a log existing on board
the ship was extremely high.
He made the decision without hesitation. He could not allow the Genestealer plague
that had nearly destroyed his own home planet to inict itself upon the rest of the
Empire.
He glared levelly at the Marines arranged before him. They were each as prepared
for battle
as a Space Marine could be. He gave the order and the third wave of boarding
torpedoes blasted away into the endless darkness of space.
Ahead, the infested ship loomed largely.
21
53
MISSION ONE: ALARM CALL
Upon landing, the commander observed that the perimeter of defence had been holding up
under the ferocious Genestealer attacks, but it still needed to be totally secure before the
Marines could begin the search for the log.
He ordered the squads of the tertiary wave to shore up
gaps in the perimeter as some Marines from the second
wave were unaccounted for.
The casualties in sector Delta Five were suspicious - five
Marines had been left unconscious, but not dead. All
indicated they had been psychically attacked and
stunned. The unconscious Marines were unable to revive
on their own.
Two Marines were trying to bring back all five
unconscious Marines while fighting off the Genestealers
looking to exploit the hole in the perimeter.
They had to quickly rescue the whole squad and fight
back to safety through the massed foe before the
Genestealers could break through the perimeter wall.
Objectives
The Marine player is attempting to rescue the
unconscious Marines. The Genestealer player is
attempting to kill all conscious Marines.
Forces
Conscious Marines: The Marine player has two
conscious Marines. They consist of one Librarian armed
with storm bolter and force axe, and one Marine armed
with storm bolter and chain fist.
Unconscious Marines: The Marine player also has one
squad of unconscious Marines. It consists of one Sergeant
armed with a storm bolter and power sword, one Marine
armed with a heavy flamer, and three Marines armed
with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission
with two Blips, and receives two reinforcement Blips per
turn.
Deployment
Conscious Marines: The conscious Marines are
deployed on the entry squares marked on the map.
Unconscious Marines: The unconscious Marines begin
the game one in each room. The players take turns
placing the unconscious Marines in any square in any
room not already occupied by another Marine model.
Place the models face down to show they are
unconscious. The Marine player places first.
Genestealers: Blips may enter play at any entry area.
Special Rules
Awakening: Reviving a Marine costs 1 AP. Any Marine
can revive another Marine in one of his front squares. A
revived Marine is stood up in their square with any facing
desired, but may not take an action until the turn after
he is awakened.
Genestealers will not attack an unconscious Space
Marine, as they are concerned with a more immediate
threats. Unconscious Space Marines block movement
through a square, but not shooting.
The Sergeant: The Marine player does not gain the
possibility to redraw a Command Counter until the
Sergeant has been revived.
Bulkheads: A Marine armed with a chain fist can break
through a bulkhead by paying 2 APs. Other Marines must
make close combat assault attacks against them,
succeeding if they roll a 6 or higher. Any close assault
bonus a Marine is entitled to applies, as do any psi points
a Librarian spends. Genestealers also need to roll a 6 to
break a bulkhead.
A bulkhead can only be shot open by an assault cannon
firing a burst at it (full auto fire has no effect). Roll three
dice for the assault cannon as normal. The bulkhead is
destroyed if any of the dice come up with a 6.
A bulkhead can be blown down by a self-destructing
flamer or thunder hammer or a malfunctioning assault
cannon. In any of these cases, the bulkhead is destroyed
on a roll or 5 or better.
Bulkheads are not affected by flamer fire.
Victory
The mission carries on until there are no conscious
Marines left in play. In order for the Marines to win, the
Marine player must have woken up at least three of the
unconscious Marines, and the Librarian and two other
Marines must have exited the map. Any other result is a
Genestealer victory.

MISSION TWO: THE SHIPS LOG
The ship's log would show where The Spore had come from and the route it had taken to get
into the Dark Angels' territory.
Any and all planets along the route recorded in the ships
log were possible sites of infection. With this data, the
Imperium would be able to hunt down and destroy the
Genestealer enclaves, potentially saving populations of
several worlds. The mission was a sacred and vital trust,
and victory would mean great accolades for the
Deathwing company.
Locating the log had not been difficult. Acquiring and
returning with it through the now-alerted foe would be
the test of the Marines' mettle. Ultimate glory was the
reward for success. The only prize for failure: death.
Objectives
The Marine player is attempting to get The Spore's log
(o) from the control room at the top of the map and
bring it back for examination. The Genestealer player is
trying to prevent this from happening.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: No forces at the start of the game, but
each turn two Blips arrive as reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The two squads start on the marked corridor.
Genestealers: Reinforcements may be brought on at
any of the marked entry areas.
Special Rules
The Marine player can secure Genestealer Entry Areas.
The Ships Log:
The Log Counter: Place the Log counter in the space
with the Marine who is carrying it. The Log counter is
assumed to take up no space in the square: a square with
the Log in it may be moved into or through as normal. In
addition, the Log does not block LOS. If a door is closed
on a square containing the Log by itself, roll a dice to see
which adjacent square the Log goes to.
Carrying the Ships Log: A Marine may carry the Log
with no penalty to movement, fire, or close assault.
Picking up the Ships Log: A Marine entering a
square with the Ships Log can pick it up for 1 AP. A
Marine may choose to drop the Log in a square as it
moves, leaving the Log behind as he moves on. A Marine
will automatically drop the Log when he is killed.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the
Log but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the Log
must leave it behind if it moves on.
Victory
The Marine player wins if he gets the Ships Log off the
map via the Exit point (X). Failure to retrieve the Ships
Log is a Genestealer win.

MISSION THREE: SEEK AND RETRIEVE
On any long travels, a ship's log does eventually become full when all its memory has been
used. When this happens, the captain or scribe simply removes the current volume from its
stand and replaces it with another. Back volumes of the log are usually kept on a shelf in the
captain's library or in his quarters.
It has been discovered that the ship's log that had been
recovered was the second of two volumes completed
since the Genestealers had overrun the ship. Another
retrieval team was sent into enemy territory to obtain
the other volume.
Unfortunately, this retrieval team was met with heavy
opposition as they reported through the comm-net. In a
desperate move, two perimeter squads were dispatched
to recover the volume that the retrieval team had failed
to return with.
Knowing that the host of Genestealers that the retrieval
team had fallen to would be waiting for them, the two
perimeter squads were fearlessly led into the sector
where the last transmission had come from. Would they
go for the closest rooms hoping for a quick find, or head
for the far room and sweep back down?
Objectives
The Marine player must locate (see Searching the
Rooms below) and bring back the volume of the ship's
log which was lost by the retrieval team. The Genestealer
player must prevent this from happening.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Librarian armed with storm
bolter and force axe, a Marine armed with an assault
cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter and one
Marine armed with lightning claws.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the game
with one Blip and receives two reinforcement Blips per
turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one squad on each
of the marked corridors.
Genestealers: Reinforcements can arrive at any of the
marked entry areas.
Special Rules
The Marine player can secure Genestealer Entry Areas.
Searching the Rooms: The log can only be found in
one of the four rooms marked on the map with a
number. A room cannot be searched while there are live
Genestealers in it. Searching a room takes 3 APs. A
Marine must enter any square in a room to search it.
After a room has been searched, the Marine player rolls a
D6. If the result is equal to or higher than the number
marked in that room, the volume has been found. The
Genestealer player then places the ship's log counter on
any square in that room.
The Long Search: If three of the four numbered rooms
have been searched without finding the Volume, it is
automatically in the last numbered room. A Marine must
still spend 3 APs in that room to locate the log.
The Ships Log Counter: Place the Log counter in the
space with the Marine who is carrying it. The Log counter
is assumed to take up no space in the square: a square
with the Log in it may be moved into or through as
normal. In addition, the Log does not block LOS. If a
door is closed on a square containing the Log by itself,
roll a dice to see which adjacent square the Log goes to.
Carrying the Ships Log: A Marine may carry the Log
with no penalty to movement, fire, or close assault.
Picking up the Ships Log: A Marine entering a
square with the Ships Log can pick it up for 1 AP. A
Marine may choose to drop the Log in a square as it
moves, leaving the Log behind as he moves on. A Marine
will automatically drop the Log when he is killed.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the
Log but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the Log
must leave it behind if it moves on.
Victory
The Marine player wins by finding the Ships Log and
carrying it off the map through one of the entry
corridors. The Genestealer player wins if the volume is
not retrieved.

MISSION FOUR: REGROUP
The defence perimeter was in shambles, and the commanding o!cer daringly took the
initiative to bring the battle to the enemy. He ordered all the other squads in his proximity to
regroup and to strike into enemy territory.
Immediately, the Marines struck out towards the target
sector while the remains of four squads struggled to join
up. The squad leaders converged on their beacons
attempting to move further into the ship by rallying
together and pushing forward across lightly defended
sections.
Not knowing how long it would take for the four
following groups to join up, the commanding officer had
to decide whether to strike quickly and let the groups
merge as they progressed, or wait in a defensive position
until more troops arrived.
Objectives
The Marine player is attempting to move further into the
ship by grouping together scattered Marines and pushing
them forward across lightly-defended sections. The
Genestealer player is simply trying to kill as many Marines
as possible.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player receives the following
groups of Space Marines.
Group 1: One Sergeant armed with a thunder hammer
and storm shield, and one Space Marine armed with a
storm bolter and chain fist.
Group 2: One Librarian armed with a storm bolter and
force axe, one Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and one Space Marine armed with lightning claws.
Group 3: Three Space Marines armed with storm bolters.
Group 4: One Space Marine armed with a storm bolter,
and one Space Marine armed with an assault cannon.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player has no Blips at
the beginning of the mission, but receives two
reinforcement Blips per turn.
Deployment
Marines: At the end of the End Phase, roll a D6 to see
when the next group will come on. A roll of 1-3 means it
arrives the next turn, while 4-6 means the turn after that.
All groups begin at the rear of the marked entry corridor.
For example, Group 1 enters the board at the beginning
of turn l. After turn 1, roll to determine when Group 2
arrives.
A result of 1-3 means they arrive on turn 2, while 4-6
means on turn 3.
Genestealers: The reinforcements may come on at any
marked entry area.
Special Rules
A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the map at the exit
point. Once exited, a Marine is out of play. He cannot re-
enter the map.
Victory
The Marine player wins by moving a total of five Marines
off of the map through the exit point shown on the map.

MISSION FIVE: C.A.T. HUNT
The push through the Genestealers' line bought the commanding o!cer enough time to
consolidate his perimeter of defence. Now, he considered his next course of action.
Usual pre-entry procedure for investigating an unknown
vessel with which contact cannot be established, is to set
loose a number of C.A.T. units that search the ship and
record anything of interest.
Unfortunately, it was reported that two out of the three
C.A.T. units released on The Spore were carrying
corrupted or partially wiped data. Only a manual
inspection would reveal which was the properly working
unit.
The commanding officer ordered two squads to look for
the C.A.T. units in a section where the Marines were
likely to come in contact with major concentrations of
Genestealers.
Objectives
The Marine player is attempting to find the one working
C.A.T. out of the three in this area and remove it to a
safe area to read the data it contains The Genestealer
player is trying to stop this from happening.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins play with
two Blips. He receives two reinforcement Blips per turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one squad on each
of the marked corridors.
Genestealers: Reinforcements can arrive at any of the
marked entry areas.
C.A.T. units: Before the game begins, the Genestealer
player decides which of the three C.A.T.s is uncorrupted,
and writes it down on a piece of paper. The Marine
player is not to be shown the paper until he locates the
correct unit.
The Marine player then rolls a D6 and puts a C.A.T.
anywhere in the room with that number marked in it on
the map. Roll again to place the second and third C.A.T.
unit. Each C.A.T. starts in a different room.
Special Rules
The C.A.T. unit
The C.A.T. Counter: Place the C.A.T. counter in the
space with the Marine who is carrying it. The C.A.T.
counter is assumed to take up no space in the square: a
square with the C.A.T. in it may be moved into or
through as normal. In addition, the C.A.T. does not block
LOS. If a door is closed on a square containing the C.A.T.
by itself, roll a dice to see which adjacent square the
C.A.T. goes to.
Carrying the C.A.T.: A Marine may carry the C.A.T.
with no penalty to movement, fire, or close assault.
Picking up the C.A.T.: A Marine entering a square with
the C.A.T. can pick it up for 1 AP. A Marine may choose
to drop the C.A.T. in a square as it moves, leaving the
C.A.T. behi nd as he moves on. A Mari ne wi l l
automatically drop the C.A.T. when he is killed.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the
C.A.T. but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the C.A.T.
must leave it behind if it moves on.
Moving the C.A.T. on its Own:
The C.A.T. units start the mission moving on their own.
When the C.A.T. is not being carried by a Marine during
an End Phase, roll a dice: on a 1-3 the Genestealer player
moves the C.A.T. ; on a 4-6, the Marine player moves it.
The C.A.T. moves up to three spaces; it pays nothing to
turn. The C.A T. may move into or through occupied
spaces; it may not, however, move into a space with a
closed door or into a burning corridor section.
The uncorrupted C.A.T.: To determine if a C.A.T. is
uncorrupted, a Marine must pick it up and examine it. It
costs 1 AP to pick it up and a further 1 AP to examine it.
Once a C.A.T. has been examined, the Genestealer player
announces whether or not it is the uncorrupted unit.
Victory
To win the Marine player must find the uncorrupted
C.A.T. and get it off the map via the marked exit
corridor. If the proper C.A.T. is not recovered, the
Genestealer player wins.

MISSION SIX: UNKNOWN LIFEFORMS
The functioning C.A.T. unit bore the commanding o!cer some startling information. Three
similar, alien lifeforms were being kept in stasis aboard The Spore. These lifeforms, if
captured and returned to the Adeptus Mechanicus on Mars, might prove to be an invaluable
nd.
The C.A.T. described the creatures as large, six-legged
insectoids, far too bulky to be carried back safely to the
boarding torpedoes while battling the Genestealer host.
However, the room was unshielded from teleportation
devices. Possibly, the lifeforms had originally been
brought aboard the ship that way. This meant, if a Space
Marine could reach one of the lifeforms, he could
teleport back to the patrol ship with it in his grasp.
Furthermore, a Marine squad had located a cache of
portable power generators and had connected them to
the security grid of Sector Alpha Seven, where the
lifeforms lay frozen. The Marines could use the
generators to block the corridors behind them and hinder
the Genestealer's assault long enough for them to
complete their mission.
Objectives
The Marine player is trying to abscond with one of the
three unknown lifeforms held in stasis in the end room
(A). The Genestealer player is doing everything possible
to stop this.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has the following forces.
One Librarian armed with a storm bolter and force axe, a
Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a
Marine armed with a heavy flamer, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon and a Space Marine armed with
lightning claws.
In addition each Space Marine has one of the power field
generators.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the
mission with one Blip, and receives two reinforcement
Blips per turn .
Deployment
Marines: The squad starts on the marked corridor
Genestealers: The Genestealer forces may come on at
any of the marked entry areas.
Unknown Lifeforms: The cryogenic tank is present in
the end room (X) as shown upon the map. The lifeforms
lie in stasis within.
Special Rules
Power Field Generators: A power field generator is a
small device that generates an invisible force field in a
sphere centred around itself. They have several uses. one
of which is sealing hull breaches in emergency situations.
However, in this mission, the Marines have come up with
a more appropriate application. They are going to use
the generators to delay the Genestealers by blocking off
some of the ship's corridors.
Using Power Field Generators: Priming and throwing
a generator costs 2 APs. A Marine can throw a generator
up to six squares away in his LOS. To be effective, the
generator must go off in a square between at least two
opposing walls (i.e. normally, only in a straight corridor
section or at the entrance to a room or junction.
Power Field Generator E"ects: The field fills the
entire square in which it lands, killing any model in that
space and completely blocking movement and firing
through it but not LOS. It takes a Genestealer 18 APs to
fight past a field and destroy the generator. On a piece
of paper, keep track of the number of APs a Genestealer
has spent on attacking a power field. If an entire turn
passes in which a power field has not been attacked. it
immediately is restored to full power again.
Marines can only destroy a field and its generator with a
power sword, chain fist, thunder hammer, force axe or
lighting claws. It costs an appropriately armed Marine 4
APs to do so. Destroyed generators are removed from
the board.
Victory
If any Marine reaches the lifeforms in the end room (A),
spends 4 APs to leave this room through the ladder (X) at
the back in order to teleport back to the ship, the Marine
player wins. Anything less than this is a Genestealer win.

MISSION SEVEN: DELAYING ACTION
After absconding with one of the alien lifeforms, the Genestealers launched a wave attack
against the Marines perimeter. Several of the Marines command units took to the eld to
bolster the perimeter, beating o" the attack with some di!culty.
The commander feared that further Marine losses might
force them to abandon the hulk altogether. He
reluctantly decidedto set up a permanent defensive
perimeter - force fields, mines and the like - until
reinforcements arrived and they could once more go to
the attack.
Techmarines began to deploy the explosives and field
generators as quickly as possible, but it soon became
obvious that the Genestealers were aware of the
Marines weakness and - again - were massing in huge
numbers to attack.
To buy some time, the commander decided to draw off
some of the massing Genestealers by the simple method
of offering them an easier target - a squad making an
attack behind enemy lines.
The Marines realised that the Genestealers were
intelligent enough to recognise what he was up to.
Therefore it was necessary to come up with a target for
the raid that the Genestealers couldnt possibly ignore.
Early scans of the vessel had located various pockets of
oxygen, held in by force fields, scattered about the vessel.
Though the Genestealers could exist for quite some time
without breathing - most of the hulk was in vacuum - no
matter how efficient their bodily functions, the
Genestealers had to breathe some time.
Most of the oxygen chambers in the hulk were clustered
in the centre of the vessel. The area of the Marine
perimeter was lightly provided with oxygen chambers:
there was only one nearby. The commander hoped that
if he destroyed this nearby oxygen chamber, the
Genestealers would have to waste time returning to the
farther chambers to breathe, leaving them less time
between journeys to fight - and possibly forcing them to
retreat en masse nearer to the precious gas.
Objectives
The Marines are attempting to fight their way through
the oxygen chamber on the other side of the map.
The Genestealers are trying to stop them by killing all the
Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Space Marine player has a Librarian with
storm bolter and force axe, a Space Marine armed with
lightning claws, a Space Marine armed with a heavy
flamer, and two Space Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the
mission with one Blip.
Genestealer reinforcements increase as the mission
progresses and the Genestealers become aware of the
Marin threat.
The number of Blips received as reinforcement depends
on the Genestealer turn as follows:
Turns 1-3 1 Blip
Turns 4-6 2 Blips
Turn 7+ 3 Blips
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys his Squad on the
marked corridor section.
Genestealers: Blips may be placed at any of the
Genestealer entry areas marked on the map.
Special Rules
The Marines can secure Genestealer entry areas.
Bulkheads: A Marine armed with a chain fist can break
through a bulkhead by paying 2 APs. Other Marines must
make close combat assault attacks against them,
succeeding if they roll a 6 or higher. Any close assault
bonus a Marine is entitled to applies, as do any psi points
a Librarian spends. Genestealers also need to roll a 6 to
break a bulkhead.
A bulkhead can only be shot open by an assault cannon
firing a burst at it (full auto fire has no effect). Roll three
dice for the assault cannon as normal. The bulkhead is
destroyed if any of the dice come up with a 6.
A bulkhead can be blown down by a self-destructing
flamer or thunder hammer or a malfunctioning assault
cannon. In any of these cases, the bulkhead is destroyed
on a roll or 5 or better.
Bulkheads are not affected by flamer fire.
Victory
The Marine player wins by getting two or more Marines
off the board at the marked exit point.
The Genestealer player wins if he kills all the Marines.
If only one Marine escapes, the game is a draw.

The Last Stand
68
THE LAST STAND
The starship landed on the bleak planet, its rockets dying as it impacted on
the broken, twisted surface. The huge plume of dust slowly settled to reveal
the craft's battered exterior pitted by meteorites, one of its engines
completely torn away. No lights ickered inside, no generators hummed, no
hatches opened.
The ship seemed dead..
Throughout the Imperium, there are small outposts of Space Marines. They
patrol their area of Imperial space and are ready to respond rapidly to defend
planets against alien conquest or aid other Imperial forces to quell
rebellions.
These outposts can take many forms. Some are concealed within the
hollowed-out shells of asteroids. Some are starships or space stations in
orbit around a sun or one of its planets. Others may be fortresses on
inhabited planets, usually sited far from the populated lands in vast
mountain ranges, or on distant volcanic islands, or within the arctic wastes
of polar regions. To the local people, the Space Marines may seem semi-
mystical godlike beings, formidable and hidden from the common eye by the
mists of rumour and legend.
In the system of Perdus Magnus, there is an outpost held by the Blood
Angels Chapter of Space Marines. It is buried beneath the surface of a small
harsh planet outermost from the star. Above the base, icy gales whip up ne
glass-like sand and scour the rocks into strange tortured shapes. The
atmosphere contains only gases deadly to the human system. During the
months-long night, many of these gases cool to liquid and the contorted
rocky statues rise out of a turgid poisonous sea.
The garrison is rotated from time to time, staying at the outpost for months,
sometimes even years, depending on the Chapter's other duties. When the
alien starship landed on the planet, there were six squads of Space Marines
stationed in the outpost. Their garrison duties were almost over - the relief
contingent was due any day.
The outpost scanned the starship for signs of life or of the energy ows that
might indicate survivors. There was nothing. The craft was completely dead.
No man could survive the planet's atmosphere unprotected by a power suit
without heat, the blood would quickly freeze - the scouring winds would
strip the esh from a man's bones. All life aboard, it seemed, had died long
ago, the crippled starship landing itself before its automatic systems shut
down forever. No-one was sent to investigate the derelict ship. There were
so many preparations for their departure as soon as the relief garrison
arrived.
Two days later the Genestealers attacked.
37
69
MISSION ONE: BREAK-IN
The Space Marines were expecting nothing. They were preparing to leave the outpost and
were scattered throughout the underground complex. When the outer defences were
breached without warning, there was only just time for them to put on their armour. As the
Genestealers broke through into the base proper, the articial atmosphere was sucked out
and the planet's own toxic atmosphere seeped in.
The first Genestealers appeared in one of the main access
corridors right next to the Space Marine living quarters.
They entered the base via the many service and
maintenance tunnels from the surface and broke in
through the roof of the access corridor.
It wasn't clear to the commander if this was a feint attack
or the main thrust of the Genestealer assault. He couldn't
chance committing more Marines to this area until he
knew the full extent of the enemy strength. The single
squad cut off in the living quarters would have to try to
close the Genestealer break-in on their own. They were
trapped and fighting for their lives.
Objectives
The Space Marine player is trying to block the
Genestealers' entry (X) into the access corridor. The
Genestealer player is trying to take control of the living
quarters section of the complex.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has one squad. It consists of
a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword,
a Marine armed with an assault cannon, and two
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins with 5 Blips
and receives 1 Blip per turn as reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The Space Marine player places the squad in
the marked rooms.
The Sergeant must start in the centre of the room
marked with a B on any facing.
The other Space Marines start one to each room marked
with an A, placed in the centre of the room on any facing
- the Space Marine player chooses which model goes in
which room.
Genestealers: The Genestealers enter play on the
square marked with an X. They are coming through a
hole in the ground.
It costs 1 AP to climb through the hole to square X.
Genestealers do not have to lurk.
The Genestealers move first.
Special Rules
The Space Marine player can secure the entry area by
getting a Space Marine within one square of square X.
Victory
Marines: The Space Marine player wins by securing the
Genestealer entry point (X).
Genestealers: The Genestealer player wins by killing all
five Space Marines before the entry point is secured.

MISSION TWO: THE GENERATOR
The second wave of the Genestealer assault came at the opposite end of the outpost. The
Genestealers were trying to isolate and destroy the base's main generator. This time they
not only entered an access corridor but came through several points on the perimeter. The
Space Marines at this end of the outpost were cut o" and surrounded.
But this time, they were better prepared for the
Genestealer assault. The vital few minutes between the
two waves had given them time to set up their position
and activate some of the base's own defences - lasers
positioned in the corridors that fire a high energy pulse
whenever something crosses beneath them.
If the controls to the main generator were destroyed, the
outpost's power would shut down. Doors would be
locked in position, the auto fire lasers would stop
working and the outpost's distress beacon would no
longer have the power to send a warning signal to the
incoming ship bringing the relief garrison.
The commander di dn' t know how cl os e t he
reinforcements were - had they already heard the distress
signal or would they arrive too late? If the main
generator fell to the invaders, the Space Marines' chances
looked poor.
Objectives
The Space Marine player must stop the Genestealer
player from destroying the generator controls (C),
located in the main generator room. He must also wipe
out the attacking Genestealer force. The Genestealer
player has a limited force to take out the generator
controls and if possible kill all the Space Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads and four
auto fire weapons (see Special Rules).
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, and three Marines armed with
storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer starts with 5 Blips and
gets 2 Blips reinforcements for the first 10 turns - after
that he gets no more reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The Space Marine player first places the four
auto fire counters (see special rules). Next, the Space
Marine player places his models anywhere on the board,
on any facing and set on overwatch if he wants.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one
starting Blip at each of the five entry areas. The
reinforcements can come on at any entry area.
The Genestealers move first.
Special Rules
Auto Fire weapons: The four auto fire weapons are
laser guns which can be attached to the ceiling and will
fire automatically on any life form passing directly
beneath them. The Marine player can place four counters
on the board in any corridor sections (not rooms,
junctions or turns).
Any model passing over the counter is fired on by the
laser. Roll a single dice. A genestealer or a Space Marine
is killed on a roll of 6.
If the control panel is destroyed, all the lasers stop firing
and the counters are removed.
An unconverted Blip cannot be moved over an auto fire
counter - it must stop its move or convert before moving.
A Blip cannot be converted so that a model is placed on
the counter.
Self-Destruct: Neither the thunder hammer nor the
heavy flamer can self-destruct in the main generator
room. The heavy flamer cannot be fired into or out of
the room.
Control panel: The control panel (C) is destroyed by a
Genestealer reaching the square marked with C and
spending 1 AP to attack it. A roll of 5 or better on any of
the Genestealers three attack dice wrecks the control
panel. At this point, all the doors will be locked onto
their current position for the rest of the campaign - if
they're closed they must be attacked to get past.
Victory
The Space Marine player wins by killing all the
Genestealers without the control panel being destroyed.
The Genestealer player wins if the control panel (C) is
destroyed and all the Space Marines are killed - he may
claim partial victory if the control panel (C) is destroyed
even though some Space Marines survive.

MISSION THREE: THE CHAPEL
While the main generator was under attack, the chapel was also stormed. Genestealers broke
in at four points on the perimeter accessed by tunnels from the surface. The commander had
pulled his Space Marines out of this area when the generator was assaulted, but realised he
would have to hold this ank if they were to stand any chance.
He ordered two squads to return to the chapel and
purge it of the alien defilement. This was not only a
tactical decision, although holding this flank was vital. It
would be a shameful dishonour to allow the Genestealers
to destroy the precious Chapter relics that were stored in
the chapel. Here were held Memento Mori of some of
the Chapter's heroes and of the great victories fought by
garrisons from this outpost.
If the Space Marines were to survive, then the Chapter
relics would survive with them and their honour would
be upheld. Their prayers were to the Emperor and their
thoughts were of the Chapter's heroes as they advanced
to retake the flank.
Objectives
The Space Marine player is attempting to purge the
chapel (C) and secure all the Genestealer entry areas. The
Genestealer player must stop this from happening.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
two Marines armed with storm bolters and one Marine
armed with lightning claws.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts the game
with 4 Blips and receives 2 Blips per turn as
reinforcements. Once two areas have been secured, the
Genestealer player receives just one reinforcement per
turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Space Marine player deploys all his models
in the marked area.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one
starting Blip at each of the four entry areas. The
reinforcements can come on at any entry area.
Special Rules
Securing areas: The Space Marine player is trying to
secure the Genestealer entry areas. Once two areas have
been secured, the Genestealer player receives just one
reinforcement per turn.
Space Marine reinforcements: Reinforcements arrive
at the Space Marine deployment area at the beginning of
the Space Marine player's third turn. They consist of two
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Victory
The Space Marine player wins by securing all entry areas
and killing all the Genestealers in play. He gets a partial
victory if the entry areas are secured but all the Space
Marines are killed.
The Genestealer player wins if all the Space Marines are
killed and at least one entry area is still open.

MISSION FOUR: THE LAST STAND
The outpost's communications had been cut early in the assault by Genestealers on the
surface. Now they could only transmit within the base. But they were able to receive faint
signals from outside. Although the messages were too distorted by static for decoding, it
was obvious that the relief garrison had arrived and was attempting to communicate with
the outpost.
Had the distress signal been received? Did the
reinforcements know that the base was under attack by
Genestealers or were they about to walk into a trap? The
commander had to believe that his brother Marines knew
they were in danger. The only hope was to hold out until
the reinforcements arrived. If they ever arrived.
The commander ordered his men to retreat to the
outpost's central core. So far this area was safe. But
before the Space Mari nes coul d regroup, the
Genestealers launched their final assault and broke
through into the core. It wouldn't be long before their
weight of numbers told against the few surviving Space
Marines.
It was a race against time. Could the Space Marines hold
out until the relief garrison arrived from the surface?
Objectives
The Space Marine player is attempting to hold control of
as many of the rooms in the central core as possible. The
Genestealer player is attempting to take over the base
before the relief garrison arrives.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player gets the models listed below
plus survivors from the previous missions (see special
rules).
One Librarian armed with storm bolter and power axe, a
Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a
Sergeant armed with thunder hammer and storm shield,
a Marine armed with a heavy flamer, a Marine armed
with storm bolter and chain fist, and a Marine armed
with storm bolter.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with 10
Blips and gets 2 Blips reinforcements for the first 12 turns
- after that he gets no more reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: The Space Marine player places one Space
Marine anywhere in each of the marked rooms (C) on
any facing and set on overwatch if he wants.
Genestealers: The Genestealers enter play at either of
the three marked entry areas (including X).
The Genestealers move first.
Special Rules
Game turns: Keep track of the game turns. The total
game lasts for 15 turns but there are several important
events during the game:
Turn 4 - Space Marines reinforcements arrive at the core
(see reinforcements below).
Turn 13 - the relief garrison arrives outside the complex
and no more Genestealer reinforcements enter the
complex.
Turn 14 - the Genestealer player wins if all the Space
Marines in the complex are dead.
Turn 15 - the relief garrison enters the complex and the
game ends.
Space Marine reinforcements: Reinforcements arrive
at the start of Space Marine player's third turn.
Reinforcements arriving at entry point A : a Marine
armed with an assault cannon, and two Marines armed
with storm bolters.
Reinforcements arriving at entry point B : a Marine
armed with lightning claws, and two Marines armed with
storm bolters.
Victory
There are five possible outcomes to the game.
Total Space Marine victory - the Space Marines kill all
the Genestealers before turn 15.
Partial Space Marine victory - there are still
Genestealers in the complex at the start of turn 15 but
there are Space Marines in at least three rooms.
Draw - there are still Space Marines alive at the start of
turn 15 but they occupy less than three rooms.
Partial Genestealer victory - the Genestealer have
taken over the whole complex by the start of turn 14 and
there are no surviving Space Marines.
Total Genestealer victory - the Genestealers have
killed all Space Marines by the start of turn 12.

SPAWN OF EXECRATION
The hulk was spotted by a Space Wolves' scout vessel, doing a routine patrol
on the edge of the area of warp/real space overlap known as the Eye of
Terror. The ship's Astropath broadcast the hulk's location back to the
Chapter's home world, Fenris, from where the information was passed on to
Earth. The majority of the Space Wolves were away, ghting a campaign
against Chaos Renegades on the other side of the Eye of Terror. As one of
their companies prepared for mobilisation, the Space Wolves received a
message from the Blood Angels First Company, who had just arrived at the
space hulk. Because of the uncertain nature of astropathic communication,
the Blood Angels had received the Space Wolves' message two weeks before
it had been sent. Once again, fate had led the Blood Angels into battle with
the Genestealers.
The commanding o!cer of the Blood Angels' force, named the hulk Spawn of
Execration. The massive ship was so huge it dwarfed the Imperial craft that
gathered round it. The hulk seemed to be a compacted mass of old
spaceships and space debris. Incredibly, scans revealed the thing was
powered, and registered large numbers of life signs. The sheer size and
density of the hulk meant the scanners were unable to penetrate much
further than the outermost layers. It would be logical to assume the life
forms were Genestealers, but this close to the Eye of Terror the presence of
other, more Sinister, occupants could not be ruled out.
There was only one way to nd out: the Marines would have to board the
hulk and investigate. No matter what evils lurked aboard this oating wreck
nothing would be allowed to stand against the might of the Blood Angels.

79
MISSION ONE: BREAK THROUGH
The Sergeant checked the scanner again. Seconds ago it had been clear, now he could see a
few green Blips at the edge of the dial. As he watched, more and more Blips appeared, and
started moving in to his squad's position.
The enemy were approaching fast, and their speed
seemed to i ndi cate that they were, after al l ,
Genestealers. Although the area had been clear when
the squad had emerged from the boarding torpedo, the
enemy had been quick to detect the intruders' presence
and move into contact with them.
They had their orders: no matter how heavy the
opposition they must not turn back, as the only chance
to get the rest of the force safely on board the hulk lay in
opening the doors to the cargo bay. A sensor sweep had
shown that the controls for the doors lay in this section
of the hulk. It was hoped that a quick strike by a single
squad would not seem sufficiently threatening to alert
the foe. So far the plan was working and the squad was
now close their objective, but things were about to get
tougher.
A final check of the scanner showed that the first of the
foe were nearly upon them, just round the corner ahead.
Very soon they would get their first sight of a
Genestealer. With a terse command he ordered the
squad to halt and ready their weapons, Despite all his
years of service, when the first wave of Genestealers tore
towards them down the corridor. The Sergeant nearly
froze with horror before his instincts and training took
over. He fired his storm bolter again and again at the
monsters. Behind him, his men fired continuously, raking
the corridor with explosive shells, but no matter how
many Genestealers they killed, more flung themselves
forward, screaming with alien fury,
Objectives
The Marines are heading for the computer console,
which they must use to open the cargo bay doors. The
Genestealers must stop this by killing all the Marines
before the doors open.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has one squad. It consists of
a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword,
one Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and three
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the
mission with four Blips, and receives one reinforcement
Blip per turn .
Deployment
Marines: The squad starts on the marked corridor
Genestealers: At the start of the game one Blip is
placed outside each entry area.The reinforcement Blips
may enter at any of the marked entry areas.
Computer Console: Place a one square token flipped
face down on the square marked as the Computer
Console Square on the map.
Special Rules
Computer Console: To activate the computer console
that opens the cargo bay doors, a Marine must stand on
the Computer Console Square (see Map) and face one of
the walls in that corner. It costs 2 APs to activate the
computer console to open the cargo doors and win the
game.
Victory
The mission ends in a Marine player victory if the cargo
doors are opened. The mission ends in a Genestealer
victory if all the Marines die before the doors are opened.

MISSION TWO: FORGE AHEAD
All of the Space Marines had seen the pictures of the Genestealers sent back by the cameras
and there was no denying how deadly they were. Storm bolter re could kill them, and heavy
amers were particularly e"ective, but in close combat the sheer strength and ferocity of a
Genestealer was more than a match for even a Space Marine.
They watched as the Genestealers ripped through a solid
steel door in seconds, tearing it apart with great slashes
of their claws before forcing their bodies through the
rents and leaping at an isolated Marine. Point blank
storm bolter blew the first two back into the door, a
third Genestealer dodged the worst of the blast and
latched its teeth into the Marines' head, bearing him
backwards down onto the floor with a mighty crash.
With two snaps of its teeth it smashed through the
helmet and tore off his head in a spray of blood.
How many Genestealers were on the hulk? The Blood
Angels had no way of telling. They must continue their
reconnaissance. The terrible witnessed death of this
Marine made the commander even more determined to
destroy the Genestealers and seize the hulk.
Working to the original plan, he split his forces into
smaller units and sent them into the hulk. The opposition
would be fierce, but this was no time subtlety: courage,
firepower and faith would prevail. Some Marines would
fall, but ultimately they would emerge triumphant. Of
their victory, the commander was assured.
Objectives
Two squads of marines must destroy at least 25
Genestealers and then exit the map. The Genestealers
want to destroy the Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads. One
consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and
power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and
three Marines armed with storm bolters. The other squad
consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder hammer and
storm shield, a Marine armed with an assault cannon,
one Marine armed with storm bolter and chain fist, and
two Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts play with
one Blip in each room (total 6 Blips), and receives one
reinforcement Blip per turn.
Deployment
Marines: Start the two squads in the two marked
corridors on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer reinforcements may
enter play at any entry area.
Special Rules
Leaving the map: A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the
map at the exit point. Once exited, a Marine is out of
play. He cannot re-enter the map. Genestealers are not
allowed to exit the map.
Lurking: For this mission, each Blip is only allowed to
lurk for a single turn. On its second turn, each Blip must
either move onto the board or convert and then enter
the board.
Victory
Once 25 Genestealers have been killed, the surviving
Marines must make their way off the board using the exit
point shown on the map. The Genestealer wins if no
Marines get off the board alive. The Marine player wins if
four or more Marines get off the board. One, two or
three Marines getting off the board should be considered
a draw

MISSION THREE: REGROUP
The Sergeant red again and nally the Genestealer went down. Quickly he swung around to
the right and snapped o" a shot at another monster as it bounded toward him. The shot hit
his second target on the neck, blowing its head from its body and ichor sprayed the corridor
as yet another alien died.
There seemed to be thousands of them and they still
keep coming. These Genestealers were a foe like no
other he had ever fought, incredibly hard to kill. His
armour already bore a triple gouge from the claw of a
Genestealer that seemed to keep coming through the
unrelenting hail of his overwatch before he could cut it
down with his power sword.
Seconds earlier, a Marine had been caught at an
intersection by Genestealers coming at him in two
directions. Even his heavy flamer had not been enough to
protect him. Thankfully they now had another heavy
flamer since another squad had linked up with them
after the death of their Sergeant, but they had lost yet
another Marine since. Shooting in both directions up and
down the corridor, no one had noticed the two
Genestealers running upside down along the ceiling until
it was too late. They had dropped down on a Marine's
head and had torn his armour open and disembowelled
him before being themselves blown apart in a hail of
vengeful storm bolter fire from the other Marines.
The Sergeant turned back to the right. His scanner
showed further Bl i ps approachi ng j ust as hi s
communicator came alive again. The other units were
also suffering heavy casualties, many squads had been
lost, while the number of Genestealers seemed infinite.
The commander had finally been forced to accept that
the hulk could not be cleared by such a small force, and
ordered the units pulled back together. With a feeling of
relief the Sergeant told his tired men they were pulling
back.
Objectives
The Marine player is trying to get at least three Marines
off the board by leaving through the exit corridors shown
on the map. The Genestealer player is trying to kill the
Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two incomplete squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword and three Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and two Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: At the start of play one Blip is placed in
room A and one Blip in room B as indicated on the map.
The Genestealer player receives two Blips per turn as
reinforcements for the first 8 turns. Only one
reinforcement Blip may be placed per entry area. After
the 8th Genestealer turn no further reinforcements may
be taken.
Deployment
Marines: Place one squad in one of the deployment
corridors shown on the map and the other squad in the
other deployment corridor.
Genestealers: Only one reinforcement Blip may be
placed per entry area. After the 8th Genestealer turn no
further reinforcements may be taken.
Special Rules
Leaving the map: A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the
map at the exit point. Once exited, a Marine is out of
play. He cannot re-enter the map.
Track Turns: It is important to track how many turns
have passed because the Genestealer player stops
receiving reinforcements at the beginning of his ninth
turn.
Victory
The Genestealer wins if all the Marines are killed. The
Marine player wins if three or more Marines get off the
board. One or two Marines getting off the board should
be considered a draw.

MISSION FOUR: CAPTURE
As the ames died down the view ahead cleared the Sergeant could see the charred bodies
of the Genestealers heaped on the oor. The heavy amer had done its work well. He
ordered the squad to continue its advance, giving thanks that although the squad had been
hastily assembled from the few Marines that had reached the regrouping area they seemed
to have melded into a team very quickly.
As the Marines waded through the blackened remains
one of the Genestealers slowly raised its head and let
loose a terrible cry. The Sergeant blasted it at point blank
range with his storm bolter and the thing dropped back
down onto the pile of its dead brethren.
The commander had ordered all the Marines to pull back
to the boarding craft. The Sergeant guessed things were
going badly. The boarding force had obviously suffered
severe casualties, and almost all the surviving Marines
were wounded. The commander was a proud man, not
fond of admitting defeat, so circumstances must be dire
indeed for him to have ordered a retreat.
His comm-link burst into life with a jabber of fresh
instructions. He and his new squad were ordered to turn
back, and rendezvous with another squad. Together they
were to proceed to a room at location Beta Kappa 7, and
retrieve a vital piece of electronic equipment that the
Tech Marines had identified as the ships log. If the Blood
Angels could save this archive its value might in some
small way compensate for their failure to capture the
hulk.
It was an honour indeed to have been chosen to lead
such an important mission, but the Sergeant's armour felt
very heavy indeed as he led his men back down into the
bowels of the alien spaceship.
Objectives
The Marine player must collect the ships log and bring it
off the board through one of the exit points. The
Genestealer player wants to prevent this at all cost.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: No forces at the start of the game. The
Genes t eal er s r ec ei ve t wo Bl i ps per t ur n as
reinforcements.
Deployment
Marines: Each of the Squads must deploy on one of the
two shaded corridors shown on the Map.
Genestealers: Reinforcements may be brought in at
any of the entry areas shown on the map.
Special Rules
Leaving the map: A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the
map at the exit point. Once exited, a Marine is out of
play. He cannot re-enter the map.
The Ships Log:
The Log Counter: Place the Log counter in the space
with the Marine who is carrying it. The Log counter is
assumed to take up no space in the square: a square with
the Log in it may be moved into or through as normal. In
addition, the Log does not block LOS. If a door is closed
on a square containing the Log by itself, roll a dice to see
which adjacent square the Log goes to.
Carrying the Ships Log: A Marine may carry the Log
with no penalty to movement, fire, or close assault.
Picking up the Ships Log: A Marine entering a
square with the Ships Log can pick it up for 1 AP. A
Marine may choose to drop the Log in a square as it
moves, leaving the Log behind as he moves on. A Marine
will automatically drop the Log when he is killed.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the
Log but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the Log
must leave it behind if it moves on.
Victory
The Marine player wins if he gets the Ships Log off the
map via the Exit corridor. Failure to retrieve the Ships
Log is a Genestealer win.

MISSION FIVE: SABOTAGE
Thanks to the seless heroism of the Sergeant, who su"ered such terrible wounds that he
almost died, the ships log had been retrieved. Two of the boarding craft, laden with
wounded Marines, had already de-clamped from the side of the hulk and were slowly
turning back to face the mother ship.
The third boarding craft was barely half full, the Marines
on board were waiting for the two last squads. The
fourth boarding craft was dark and empty; it had been
left clamped to the space hulk as a mark of respect for
the dead.
The Blood Angels had to destroy the space hulk. Such a
thing was too dangerous to leave drifting through space.
Humans, blinded by greed or hungry for forbidden
knowledge, might try to raid it. Orks or Chaos raiders
might board the ship and ride it over the seas of the
warp. Or the hulk might be caught by the gravity of a
planet and crash there, spelling the doom of a whole
world. If Genestealers infestation reached too high a level
for the Imperium to suppress, only one option remained:
Exterminatus - the destruction of an entire planet.
The Blood Angels' spaceships lacked the firepower to
destroy the hulk, and the commander could not afford to
wait for the Gothic class battlecruisers of the Imperial
navy. There was one desperate course of action left open
to him. They could try to destroy the hulk by sabotaging
its decrepit nuclear reactors. If the Damping Controls
were destroyed, the chain reactions within the engine
would tear the hulk apart from the inside.
Two squads of Blood Angels had been slowly working
their way towards the engines and were now within
striking distance.
Objectives
The Marines must destroy the reactor Damping Controls
which are in the room indicated on the map.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins play with
three Blips. He receives two reinforcements per turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one full squad on
each of the shaded corridor sections shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player's starting forces
and reinforcements may arrive at any of the entry areas
he chooses.
Damping Controls: Place a one square token flipped
face down on the square marked as the Damping
Controls Square on the map.
Special Rules
The Marine player can secure Genestealer Entry Areas.
Destroying Damping Controls: The Damping
Controls can be destroyed by two hits with a storm bolter
or an assault cannon; a roll of six is needed to count as a
hit. Sustained fire bonuses apply.
Victory
The Marine player wins the moment that the Damping
Controls are destroyed by a second hit of storm bolter
fire. The Genestealer player wins if all the Marines are
killed.

MISSION SIX: RACE AGAINST TIME
The Sergeant pounded up the corridor as fast as his armour would carry him. Behind him
clanked two Marines, lugging their one remaining heavy amer. They were down to three
now. Two Marines had been killed as they fought their way down to the heart of the hulk to
sabotage the nuclear reactor; another two had been killed in a tremendous battle in a room
that contained the damping controls.
On the way back a Marine had fallen to his doom when a
metal staircase had given way beneath his weight. They
had paused momentarily to reload the flamer and had
been ambushed by Genestealers attacking the room from
three directions at once. A Marine had been killed almost
instantly as a Genestealer clawed his suit to shreds. The
Marines had beaten off the attack, but one of them had
been so badly wounded that the Sergeant was forced to
administer the Emperor's Grace to save him from further
suffering. This left three, and they still had several levels
to go before they were close enough to the outer skin of
the hulk for the teleporter to latch onto their life signs.
A glance at his scanner showed the Sergeant that there
were not only Blips converging behind them but also
massing to block the way ahead. With the luck of the
Emperor, if they could keep going for just a few more
minutes they would be safe. Ominous rumblings deep
within the hulk signalled that the destruction of the
damping controls was having an effect. The walls started
to shake, and chunks of metal and cabling began to fall
from the ceiling.
Objectives
The remaining Space Marines are simply attempting to
get through this section to the outer levels of the hulk as
fast as they can so they can be teleported before it blows
up.
Forces
Marines: Seven Space Marines are making their way
out.
A Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword,
a Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and four Marines
armed with storm bolters and one Marine armed with
chain fist and storm bolter.
Genestealers: At the start of the game the Genestealer
player receives four Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player places the Marines on any
squares within the two deployment corridors.
Genestealers: At the start of the game one of the four
starting Blips is placed in each room.
For the first four turns of the game the Genestealer
player gets one reinforcement Blip per turn, which use
either of the entry points marked A on the map.
From the fifth turn until the end of the game the
Genestealer player gets two Blips that must enter using
either of the entry points marked B on the map.
Special Rules
Time Limit: The game will end after twelve turns when
the nuclear reactor of the ship explodes, so it's important
to mark the turns as they pass.
Leaving the map: A Marine pays 1 AP to move off the
map at the exit point. Once exited, a Marine is out of
play. He cannot re-enter the map.
Victory
The game ends after the Genestealer player's twelfth
turn. The Marine player wins by getting two or more or
his squad members off the board. The Genestealer player
wins if no more than one Marine escapes the hulk.

Harbinger of Despair
92
HARBINGER OF DESPAIR
Since the Blood Angels' ill#fated assault on the Spawn of Execration the
incidence of space hulk sightings has increased substantially, and by the
early years of the 74th decade an average of one hulk per year was being
detected. None of these ships were large enough to pose any real threat to
the Imperium. The smallest were blown up, and larger hulks were boarded
and searched before being destroyed, but none proved particularly valuable.
In the year 736, a strange disturbance in the warp/real space interface
heralded the arrival of a monstrous space hulk, fully half as big again as the
Spawn of Execration. It emerged on the eastern edge of the Ultima
Segmentum , and immediately turned west, apparently heading straight for
the heart of the Imperium. The commander of the nearby Imperial navy base
sent out a call to the nearest Space Marine Chapter and named the hulk
Harbinger of Despair.
As the hulk's coarse posed no immediate danger to any human#inhabited
worlds, it was allowed to pursue its course, trailed by a otilla of Imperial
ships from Battleeet Ultima. Three days later, the hulk slipped back into the
warp and was nearly lost but for the persistence of a squadron of navy
frigates. Against all odds, the gallant little ships trailed the hulk through the
nightmare shoals of the warp until it dropped back into real space just ve
light years from the planet Formund, right in the path of the Blood Angels
company that was racing to meet their destiny at Kar Duriash.
The Blood Angels force was led by the same Commander who had
distinguished himself by ghting Genestealers on the hulk Spawn of
Execration thirty years ago. His rst hand combat experience, coupled with his
exceptional bravery and superior leadership qualities, made him the ideal
choice to lead the Blood Angels on their quest for retribution.

93
MISSION ONE: SEIZE AND SECURE
The Sergeant was another survivor of the Blood Angels' fated encounter with the Spawn of
Execration. In all his years of service, the abortive mission to seize the space hulk was his
most vivid, most horric memory. He had seen things no ordinary man could ever imagine,
and lived through experiences no normal human could endure or comprehend.
In time, as the years passed and memory blurred all his
past wars and battles together, the Sergeant's sense of
wonder had dulled, and the extraordinary had become
commonplace. But he had never forgotten the Blood
Angels' struggle against the Genestealers.
Every single detail of their battle on that hulk lay
engraved on his memory. It was a horror he would like to
be able to forget, but couldn't. In his dreams he relived
the fight over and over again. Running through the maze
of claustrophobic corridors and dark rooms. Genestealers
charging at them from all directions: alien killing
machines without fear or conscience. No matter how
many Genestealers they killed, more and more had
thrown themselves forward. Ten, fifty, hundreds dead...it
made no difference. The monsters kept coming in and
endless stream.
Now he was going to have to face the horror again. If he
could only survive this day, the Sergeant believed he
would conquer the demons of his own personal fear.
The Sergeants squad had been charged with securing a
bridgehead on the hulk, a secure area for the rest of the
force to board. Scans had revealed an ideal location but
there were Blips approaching from four different
directions. It was the Marines' duty to secure the
boarding section by sealing the bulkhead at each entry
area.
Objectives
The Marine player is trying to secure all the Genestealer
entry points. The Genestealer player is trying to kill all the
Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins play with
four Blips and receives two reinforcement Blips per turn
that must be placed in separate entry areas. Genestealer's
reinforcements drop to one Blip per turn if the Marines
secure two of the four Genestealer Entry Areas.
Deployment
Marines: Place one squad in each of the deployment
corridors shown on the map.
Genestealers: Place one Blip in each room, except for
the room between the two Marine deployment areas.
Reinforcement Blips must enter play at separate entry
areas.
Special Rules
The Marine player can secure Genestealer Entry Areas.
Victory
The Marine player wins as soon as all four Genestealer
entry areas are secured. The game ends in a Genestealer
victory if all the Marines die and two or less entry areas
are secured. The game ends in a draw if three entry areas
are secured before the last Marine dies.

MISSION TWO: MENACE
So far, the action to take the space hulk was going well. The commander had spent decades
studying Genestealers and developing tactics to deal with them. He had a sound strategy
worked out, and the personal experience to back it up. The Blood Angels' company was at
full strength, and keen to restore the honour of the Chapter. The dangers of a space hulk
could never be underestimated, but the Blood Angels were now better prepared than they
had ever been before.
Scans of the ship had shown fairly high concentration of
Genestealers throughout, so the Sergeant wasn't
surprised by the number of Blips showing on his scanner.
The original landing had gone well with no further
casualties after the bridgehead had been established and
now they were to start a push towards the heart of the
hulk, clearing the area as they advanced.
A brief message over the comm-link from another squad
informed him they had just encountered heavy
resistance, and could do with assistance. Though the
squads did know where they were in relation to each
other, it was often difficult to meet up. The passages
seemed to have no logical layout, and turned and twisted
apparently at random. The doors would sometimes swing
open as they approached, or could prove so difficult to
open that they had to blow their way through with
storm bolter fire. According to the scanner, the other
Marine squad should be directly ahead of their current
position, hopefully through the door at the end of the
passage.
Objectives
Both players are trying to eliminate their enemy's forces.
The Marines have five turns to clear a heavily infested
area of Genestealers before six turns of reinforcements
begin to trickle in. No new forces enter the board after
the beginning of the 12th turn.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with a
force of ten Blips on the map. There are no
reinforcement Blips for the first five turns. On turns 6 to
10 one reinforcement Blip is received per turn. Starting
with the twelfth turn no reinforcement Blips are drawn
for the rest of the game.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player starts one squad in
each of the deployment corridors shown on the map.
Genestealers: Before the game begins, a starting force
of ten Blips is placed in the squares indicated on the map.
Reinforcements may be brought on at any of the marked
entry areas.
Special Rules
Genestealers may not lurk in this mission. If forced to do
so they are lost.
Victory
The player with the last model standing is the winner.

MISSION THREE: DATA DOWNLOAD
The two squads were making good progress through the hulk. So far resistance had been
low - was is possible that the Genestealers hadn't noticed the two squads?
Their target lay straight ahead, a room which showed
high levels of electrical activity. The Tech Marines hoped
this indicated a functioning computer console, and that
they could download the data it contained. Both squads
were carrying data transmitters that could be linked into
the hulk's computer system and would automatically
transmit the stolen data to the Blood Angels' mother ship
in one short high-speed burst.
Such a bold move had never been attempted before, and
showed the commander's confidence. If it worked, the
Blood Angels would have achieved a tremendous coup -
the first ever data download from a space hulk's
computer archive. The information it contained would be
of incalculable value to the scientists of the Imperium.
The mission was so important that, if necessary, the
Space Marines were expected to sacrifice themselves so
one of them could get to the computer.
"Enemy approaching at 12 o'clock! Take your positions
and hold formation!" shouted the Sergeant as five
Genestealers galloped around the corner toward the
squad. The flamer Marine braced himself and fired his
heavy flamer. Waves of flames guttered and rolled down
the corridor and the Genestealers were consumed by a
blazing inferno. The Space Marines had been discovered.
Objectives
The Marines must enter the computer room and plant a
data transmitter to successfully download the hulk's data.
The Genestealers must destroy all marines before this
happens.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the game
with four Blips, and receives two reinforcement Blips per
turn.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one squad on each
of the marked corridors.
Genestealers: At the start of the game one Blip is
placed outside each entry area.The reinforcement Blips
must be placed in separate entry areas.
Computer Console: Place a one square token flipped
face down on the square marked as the Computer
Console Square on the map.
Special Rules
The Marine player can secure Genestealer Entry Areas.
Computer Console: To attach an automatic data
transmitter to the computer console, a Marine must
stand on the Computer Console Square (see Map) and
face one of the walls in that corner. It costs 4 APs or CPs
in one turn to attach the data transmitter to the
computer console and win the game.
Victory
The Marine player wins as soon as a Marine spends 4 APs
or CPs to download the data to the mother ship. The
Genestealer player wins if all the Marines are killed
before this happens.

MISSION FOUR: ISOLATE
Despite heavy opposition, two squads had achieved their objective, holding o" the
Genestealers until the alien data had been transmitted to the Blood Angels mother ship.
Initial analysis of the data streams showed that the ship was not the oating hulk the Space
Marines had supposed it to be but was in fact being directed by an external source based on
the planet of Grazarch XXIV in the nearby Altron star system.
Further analysis revealed that the hulk had drifted
through the Altron system some time in the recent past
and had dropped a number of landing pods onto the
planet. The only possible conclusion was that the small
Imperial mining colony on Grazarch had been overrun
and that someone or something on the planet was
di recti ng the hul k. Al l attempts to establ i sh
communication with Grazarch failed, but an Astropath
on Formund informed the Blood Angels that all contact
with the mining colony had been lost for three years.
The commander knew that he had to deal with the
threat. The alien signal emanating from Grazarch could
control more than just the hulk's movements - it might be
able to activate the ship's weapons systems, force the
hulk back into the warp, or even trigger a self-destruct
sequence. The only way that the threat could be
neutralised was to sever the communication stream
before the alien intelligence could prevent them breaking
its control.
While the bulk of the Marine force continued to clear the
hulk of Genestealers, two squads were dispatched to
destroy the alien receiver.
Objectives
The Marines must get to the communications console
and cut off the alien communication link that's directing
the space hulk's movement by remote. The Genestealers
must kill all of the Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the game
with four Blips, and receives two reinforcement Blips per
turn. Only one reinforcement Blip may be placed per
entry area.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one squad on each
of the marked corridors.
Genestealers: Before the game begins, a starting force
of four Blips is placed in the squares indicated on the
map. Reinforcements may be brought on at any of the
marked entry areas.
Computer Console: Place a one square token flipped
face down on the squares marked as Computer Console
Square on the map.
Special Rules
Disabling Communications Link: A Marine must
stand on one of the three Computer Console squares and
spend 4 APs or CPs in a single turn.
Victory
The Marines win if they disable the communications link.
The Genestealers win if they kill the Marines first.

MISSION FIVE: ANNIHILATE
The Sergeant checked his scanner and saw that another squad was running level in the
parallel corridor. All other corridors were clear and the objective lay ahead seemingly
undefended. The hulk contained hundreds of rooms holding Genestealers in cryogenic
storage and it was hard to believe that one particular set of storage pods was more
important than the others. However, the data the Blood Angels had downloaded from the
hulk's computer indicated that one pod contained a very special Genestealer, a leader known
as a Patriarch.
All the cryogenic clusters the Marines had seen so far
looked identical; frosted crystal cylinders full of swirling
green gas. It was impossible to see what was inside them,
though the mere presence of a human watcher was
enough to stimulate agitated movement within.
It was hoped that the Marines would be able to identify
which cylinder contained the Genestealer leader. No one
knew what a Patriarch looked like. It might look like just
an ordinary Genestealer but its physiology could be
completely different. There was not enough time to
capture the alien leader for study, even if they could find
it, so their orders were to destroy the entire contents of
the target room.
Suddenly the Sergeant's scanner blipped a furious
warning. Seconds earlier the area had clear, now
numerous Blips were closing in on all sides. It seemed
they had walked into a hornets' nest. His helmet display
indicated they should reach their destination in under
two minutes - with the blessing of the Emperor they
might just make it.
Objectives
The Marines must destroy all four cryogenic pods in the
Cryogenics Chamber. The Genestealers must kill all the
marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with six
Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one squad on each
of the marked corridors.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with three
Blips lurking in each entry area. In each following turn he
receives two reinforcement Blips. Only one reinforcement
Blip may be placed per entry area.
Cryogenic Pods: Place a one square token flipped face
down token on the squares marked as Cryogenic Pod
Square on the map.
Special Rules
Destroying Cryogenic Pods: The cryogenic pods are
arranged in the corners of the Cryogenic Chamber, as
shown on the map. The pods are destroyed by storm
bolter or assault cannon fire on the roll of a 6 and 5
respectively and sustained fire bonuses apply. Treat them
as Doors when attacking with other weapons.
Victory
The Marines win by destroying all four cryogenic pods.
The Genestealers win by killing the Marines before they
accomplish this.

MISSION SIX: RETRIBUTION
The campaign to seize the hulk was going remarkably well; this time the Emperor was
smiling on the Blood Angels. Casualties were less than expected, and every specic objective
had been achieved, the most important being the retrieval of the information stored in the
hulk's computer banks.
The most efficient way to rid the hulk of its monstrous
inhabitants was to use toxic gas to kill the active
Genestealers, then take advantage of the respite to
destroy the cryogenic clusters before the reinforcements
they contained awoke.
The Imperial xenobiologists had refined the anti-
Genestealer toxin so that it was now hundreds of times
more effective than the version used on the Sin of
Damnation over a hundred years ago. Although deadly,
the toxin would not spread through the hulk on its own.
The data from the computer had provided the answer:
the hulk's internal air pumping systems were still
operational, and could be used to pump the toxin
through the hulk. The success of the whole campaign
now rested on this one last mission.
Objectives
The Marines must carry the Toxin CanisterToxin Canister
to the main air pump and connect them into the air
system. The location of the pump for the air system is
indicated on the map.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
Squad 2 consists of a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with six
Blips and receives two reinforcement Blips per turn. Only
one reinforcement Blip may be placed per entry area.
Deployment
Marines: Place one squad in each of the darkened
deployment corridors shown on the map. Place the two
Toxic Canister counters next to the Marines that carry
them.
Genestealers: Place one of the starting Blips in each
room and one on the T!section as marked on the map.
Air Pump System: Place a four square crate counter
flipped face down as shown upon the map.
Special Rules
Toxin Canister:
Use two C.A.T. counters to indicate the Toxin Canisters.
A Marine carrying a Toxin Canister may not fire a
weapon, defend himself in close assault, or open a door.
The only actions he can take are to move or to put the
canister down for a cost of 1 AP.
A Marine carrying a Toxin Canister does not roll if a
Genestealer attacks him in close assault. He is
automatically killed if any of the Genestealer's dice are 3
or higher, and the canister is left on the square where he
died. Genestealers cannot attack the Toxin Canisters.
Picking up a canister costs 2 APs, and the Marine must be
in the same square as the canister to do so. Toxin
Canisters cannot be passed between Marines, but they
can be put down for 1 AP.
Attaching a Toxin Canister to the Air Pump System
requires the Marine to be in the adjacent square, facing
any side of the Air Pump counter. It costs 2 APs to attach
the canister and win the game.
Victory
The Marines win by getting at least one Toxin Canister
attached to the Air Pump System for a cost of 2 APs. The
Genestealers win by stopping the Marines.

Bringer of Sorrow
106
BRINGER OF SORROW
Relief Force Ares was dispatched when deep space auguries in the Ultima
Segmentum detected the approach of the Tyranids. This ravening threat was
nearing the colony of Corinthe and the Dark Angels were notied of the
situation. The transport ship Vengeful Blade dropped out of warp space a
mere two days travel from the colony, with the Space Marines on board
chanting their Catechisms of War as they prepared to reinforce the meagre
troops of the Corinthian Planetary Defence Force.
However, as the Vengeful Blades vast engines powered it towards the outpost,
reality was torn apart again as another, much larger ship dropped out of the
warp. It was a space hulk, an immense monstrosity almost fty kilometres
long and half as wide a horric conglomeration of alien ships which scans
showed to contain a swarm of Genestealers.
The commander considered his position. Which was the greater threat, the
space hulk, dubbed the Bringer of Sorrow, or the imminent attack by the
Tyranids? The Vengeful Blade would take a least a day, maybe more, to
destroy the space hulk. The Vengeful Blade was built for speed rather than
strength and to smash the hulk would really require a dedicated battleship,
which could take weeks to arrive, by which time the hulk could be lost again.
News then arrived that the Tech Marines under Ares command had found
another way of demolishing the Bringer of Sorrow. Preliminary scans had
located a massive reactor, remnants of some ancient alien starship of huge
size. If it could be made to overload, the resultant detonation would destroy
the hulk. More information would have to be gathered rst, but if the Dark
Angels acted swiftly they could destroy the hulk within a matter of hours
rather than days.
The few squads of Deathwing Terminators on board donned their armour,
checked their weapons and prepared to board the Bringer of Sorrow. As the
boarding torpedoes powered across the ether, word arrived from Corinthe
the rst Tyranid ships were just outside the system. Speed was of the
essence and the Space Marines could not a"ord to fail.
77
107
MISSION ONE: PIERCE THE DARKNESS
The Tech Marines needed more information before they could devise a way of detonating
the alien reactor, thereby destroying the Bringer of Sorrow. The quickest way to gather this
data was to send in cybernetic scouts C.A.T.s. These would be able to slip past the
Genestealers and transmit the vital information the Marines needed.
However, first of all a beachhead needed to be
established and a route opened for the C.A.T.s to
proceed towards the reactor.
The Sergeant of the Deathwing was charged with the
responsibility of locating the master controls for the
reactor with the three available C.A.T.s. Should this be
achieved in time, the Marines would be able to shut
down the failsafe systems, killing all the aliens as the hulk
exploded into a plasma fireball a hundred kilometres
across.
A veteran of several campaigns against these foes, the
Sergeant knew full well how dangerous his opponents
were. Yet there was no time for subtlety: he would have
to simultaneously open the blast doors which barred the
way, and fight off any Genestealer attacks!
Objectives
The Marines must open the blast doors to let the C.A.T.s
into the rest of the hulk.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealers start with three Blips.
Deployment
Marines: Each of the Squads must deploy together with
the three C.A.T.s on one of the two shaded corridors
shown on the Map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one of the
starting Blips in each of the rooms as shown on the map.
One reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from any of the
Genestealer entry areas.
Special Rules
Blast Doors: Marines can open a blast door for 1 AP.
The C.A.T.: The C.A.T.s have 3 A.P.s each and are moved
by the Marine player. Their AP costs for movement are
the same as Marines and they can open a door for the
cost of 1 AP, but not a blast door. A C.A.T. can pass
through, or occupy, a space containing a Marine or a
Genestealer. Genestealers cannot hinder or attack the
C.A.T.s. Each C.A.T. must leave the section by a different
exit point as marked on the map.
Victory
If the Marine player moves at least two of the C.A.T.s off
of the board, it is classified as a Marine victory. Each
C.A.T. must leave the section by a different exit point as
marked on the map.
Any other result is a Genestealer victory. If all the Marines
are killed, any C.A.T.s still on the board do not count
towards victory, even if the relevant blast doors have
been opened.

MISSION TWO: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
Due to the heroic e"orts of the Sergeant, the C.A.T.s were able to pass through the blast
doors and locate the master controls of the reactor. Unfortunately, the energy leaks from the
main reactor core of the Bringer of Sorrow were enough to damage even the radiation-
shielded C.A.T.s.
The robots were moving in an erratic manner and were
not transmitting all the required data. The commander
was left with little choice: he had to dispatch another
strike force to find the C.A.T.s and manually transmit the
location of the master controls, despite the inevitable
resistance of the foul Genestealers. Time was running
out. Chanting the Litanies of Hatred the Marines readied
their weapons to perform this nigh-on impossible task.
Objectives
The Marines must relay the data from the wayward
C.A.T.s and try to seal off any further entry of the
Genestealers.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with two
Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one full squad on
each of the shaded corridor sections shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one of the
starting Blips in each of the Genestealer entry areas. Two
reinforcement Blips arrive per turn from any of the
Genestealer entry points that are not sealed by
bulkheads, until both Genestealer entry points are sealed.
If both Genestealer entry areas are sealed, no more
reinforcements Blips will arrive.
Special Rules
Bulkheads: The Marine player can close bulkheads in
the same way as any other doors. These bulkheads
cannot be reopened or destroyed. Bulkheads are always
placed as open doors at the start of a mission.
The C.A.T.: The C.A.T.s have 3 A.P.s each and their AP
costs for movement and opening doors are the same as
Marines. C.A.T.s cannot seal entry points. A C.A.T. can
pass through, or occupy, a space containing a Marine or
a Genestealer but cannot leave the board. Genestealers
cannot hinder or attack the C.A.T.s.
If the Marine is in the same space as the C.A.T., the
Marine can spend 4 AP/CPs in one go to transmit the
data contained within the C.A.T.
At the start of turn 2 roll a dice to see where the first
C.A.T. enters play and place the C.A.T. on the end space
of that board section. At the start of turn 3 and 4, roll for
any C.A.T.s that remain.
At the start of each turn, roll a D6 for each C.A.T. on the
board to see who moves which C.A.T: on a roll of 1-3 it is
the Marine player, on a roll of 4-6 it is the Genestealer
player. C.A.T.s are moved at the beginning of the turn,
before the Marine or Genestealer phases.
Victory
If the Marine player transmits the data from one of the
C.A.T.s, it is classified as a Marine victory. Any other result
is a Genestealer victory.

MISSION THREE: DEATHBRINGER
The data recovered by the squad revealed the location of the main control computer near the
reactor core. Now all that remained was to shut down the fail-safe, melting down the reactor
and destroying the hulk in the ensuing massive detonation.
However, once the fail-safe was shut down and the
nearby reactor went critical, it would destroy any Marines
who couldnt get clear in time. The leaking reactor was
playing havoc with the teleporters and the squads sent in
might still give their lives even if they defeated the
Genestealers ...
Two squads of the most experienced Marines in the relief
force, volunteered to carry out this mission, and the
commander accorded them this high honour. The
commanding Sergeant performed the Rights of
Absolution with his squad, checked his storm bolter and
led the attack on the control room. He was determined
to make sure that his name would be remembered as the
man who destroyed the Bringer of Sorrow.
Objectives
The Space Marines must disable the failsafe systems and
overload the reactor.
Forces
Marines: Seven Space Marines are making their way
out.
A Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword,
a Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and four Marines
armed with storm bolters and one Marine armed with
chain fist and storm bolter.
Genestealers: At the start of the game the Genestealer
player receives five Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player places the Marines on any
squares within the two deployment corridors.
Genestealers: At the start of the game one of the five
starting Blips is placed in each room as indicated on the
map. One reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from any of
the Genestealer entry points.
Special Rules
Failsafe Systems: In order to disable the Failsafe
Systems a Marine must stand in the cross-marked space,
facing the wall and spend 4 consecutive action points
without interruption. Keep track of the action points as
they are spent and start over again if the Marine makes
any other action (including defending himself in close
assault).
Weapon Limitations: Because of the danger of
damaging the nuclear reactor, the flamer or assault
cannon may not be fired at the spaces in the reactor
control room. If one is fired, the game ends immediately
as a Genestealer victory.
Victory
If the Marine player is able to disable the failsafe systems,
it is classified as a Marine victory. Any other result is a
Genestealer victory.

Fangs of Fenris

FANGS OF FENRIS
Amongst the annals of the Imperium, few warriors have proved their worth
as much as the Wolf Guard of the Space Wolves Chapter. Devastatingly
ferocious in attack, immovably resolute in defence, these savage warriors
have broken many foes down the long millennia. Like the other Space Marine
Chapters, the Space Wolves have had their share of encounters with the
deadly Genestealers. Perhaps the most memorable action against the vile
alien invaders was fought between a small force of Wolf Guard who were
sent to eradicate the threat posed by the space hulk Messenger of Woe, which
dropped out of warp space only a few light years from the Space Wolves
home world of Fenris.
The Wolf Lord commanded the attack, sending his squads of Marines into the
heart of the Genestealers lair. There they battled face-to-face with their
foes, resolving to destroy each abomination with their storm bolters, heavy
amers and assault cannon. There were no cryogenics to shut down, no
handy reactors to explode, no tricks at all the aliens would each have to be
killed personally, a prospect which the battle-hungry veterans actually
looked forward to with fevered anticipation. Now was a grand opportunity to
prove their worth in battle and earn themselves a place at Leman Russ side
at the time of reckoning... Ragnarok.
The Wolf Guards boarding torpedoes slammed into the side of the Messenger
of Woe and the Marines stormed out, quickly establishing a bridgehead from
which to launch further attacks. Progress was good and hundreds of
Genestealers fell to the Space Wolves assault cannons and lightning claws.
However, a relatively small force of the vile aliens managed to evade the fate
of their brethren, slipping away into the shadowy depths of the hulk whilst
the Wolf Guard ercely battled their way towards them. Eradicating this knot
of resistance would be the Space Wolves main task.
SPECIAL RULES
Wolf Guard are very tough consequently these three missions are also tough!
Marines get 5 action points to spend per turn instead of the usual 4 action points.
85
115
MISSION ONE: TRAP THE FOE
The main problem faced by the Wolf Lord was the size of the area occupied by the
Genestealers. Unless he could limit his foes freedom of movement, his Wolf Guard could
spend forever and a day hunting down the aliens and still not catch them all. To counter this,
he ordered two squads and to cut o" the Genestealers escape routes by sealing the
bulkheads across their path, trapping the ends where he could attack them.
Objectives
The Marines must seal the Genestealer entry areas with
bulkheads.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads of six
Marines.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
three Marines armed with storm bolters and a Marine
armed with lightning claws.
Squad 2 consists of a Librarian armed with power axe
and storm bolter, a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with six
Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The squads deploys on the shaded corridors
shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one of the
six starting Blips in each of the rooms as indicated on the
map. One reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from each of
the Genestealer entry areas that are not blocked by a
bulkhead.
Special Rules
Close Bulkheads: During a mission the Marine player
can close bulkheads in the same way as any other doors.
Once closed, these bulkheads cannot be re-opened. or
destroyed. Bulkheads are always placed as open doors at
the start of a mission.
Victory
If the Marine player is able to close all of the bulkheads,
it is considered a Marine victory. Any other result is
considered a Genestealer victory.

117
MISSION TWO: COUNTER-ATTACK
As the squads sealed o" the Genestealers line of retreat, two other squads pressed forward,
pushing the Genestealers before them. Then disaster happened. The Space Wolves
preliminary scans had failed to pick up a large concentration of Genestealers lurking near a
shattered engine room.
Perhaps the additional radiation shielding had cloaked
them from the scans of the Space Wolves battle cruiser.
Whatever the reason, the two squads found themselves
headi ng strai ght for a l arge concentrati on of
Genestealers who suddenly turned and launched a
counter-attack. Wave after wave of the fiends poured
towards the doomed Wolf Guard.
The commander dispatched more squads to counter this
threat, but the two squads would have to hold up the
Genestealers for as long as possible. If they could sell
their lives dearly enough the valiant Wolf Guard could
keep the Genestealers in one place. Then their battle-
brothers would be able to catch them and slaughter the
foe wholesale. Checking their weapons, the Wolf Guard
picked their defensive positions and prepared to take as
many of the abominations with them as possible.
Objectives
The Marines are trying to hold out for 15 rounds.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads of six
Marines.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
three Marines armed with storm bolters and a Marine
armed with lightning claws.
Squad 2 consists of a Librarian armed with power axe
and storm bolter, a Sergeant armed with thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with an
assault cannon, one Marine armed with a storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with no Blips
on the map.
Deployment
Marines: The two squads may be deployed anywhere on
the map, split as you want.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with no
Blips on the map. Three reinforcement Blips arrive per
turn from the Genestealer entry points.
Special Rules
Genestealer Entry Areas:
Genestealer Entry Areas are indicated both by the 2
classic entry point triangles as the 10 diamonds on the
map!
Lurking: The Genestealers are never forced to lurk, even
if there is a Marine within 6 spaces. Marines standing on
entry point squares may be attacked in close combat
straight away by Genestealers entering at that point,
with no chance to fire on overwatch.
Victory
If one or more Marines still survive after 15 rounds of
play, it is considered a Marine victory. The Genestealer
player wins if he manages to kill all Marines before the
end of round 15.

MISSION THREE: ANNIHILATE
Wave after wave of clawed monstrosities poured through the cramped tunnels, intent on
rending apart the Wolf Guard. The staccato pounding of storm bolter and assault cannon re
became a constant drone and the death toll amongst the aliens reached astronomical
proportions. Losses amongst the veteran Space Wolves were light and the comm-net echoed
with vicious laughter as they destroyed their foes.
Only one section of the Messenger of Woe remained to
be cleansed. The Wolf Guard moved in relentlessly until
only a small pocket of resistance held out. Two squads
faced this last-ditch attempt at survival. Implacably they
advanced with their weapons blazing, until finally the
Genestealers could flee no more.
The destruction of the Genestealers was virtually assured,
everything now was a matter of honour. The Sergeant
wanted to lose as few warriors as possible. Every Space
Wolf lost to the Genestealers now would be a total
waste.
Objectives
The Marines must destroy all Genestealers. The
Genestealers try to kill all Marines.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two squads of six
Marines.
Squad 1 consists of a Sergeant armed with storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
three Marines armed with storm bolters and a Marine
armed with lightning claws.
Squad 2 consists of a Librarian armed with power axe and
storm bolter, a Sergeant armed with thunder hammer and
storm shield, a Marine armed with an assault cannon, one
Marine armed with a storm bolter and chain fist, and two
Marines armed with storm bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the game
with the full Blip set.
Deployment
Marines: The Marines are deployed in four groups in the
four corridors as marked on the map.
Genestealers: Randomly place 1 Blip on each of the
four dead ends, 2 in each of the rooms and the rest
anywhere on the board as long as they are not within 10
squares of a Marine. These Blips are placed after the
Marines have set up.
Victory
The Marine player wins if he is able to destroy all
Genestealers. The Genestealers win if they kill all the
Marines.

Duty and Honor
122
DUTY AND HONOUR
Amongst all the chapters of the Legiones Astartes, the fame of the
Ultramarines is unrivalled. They are the greatest and the most powerful
chapter of the Space Marines, renowned throughout the galaxy for their strict
adherence to the Codex Astartes as laid down by their Primarch, ten
millennia before.
The Ultramarines su"ered greatly during the First Tyrannic War, and their
Marine company perished to a man when ghting against hordes of Tyranids
and Genestealers, a grievous loss from which the chapter has not yet fully
recovered. Because of this legacy of hatred, the Ultramarines are implacable
foes of the Genestealers. Any opportunity to ght against these foul aliens is
a much sought-after honour amongst the Ultramarines.
Such an opportunity came during the great Forian Crusade. A gigantic,
lumbering space hulk named Hunter of the Void, appeared from the warp
space near the home world of the Ultramarines: Macragge. Unfortunately,
most of the Ultramarine eet was ghting the Emperors War, and thus only
one ship could be spared to stop the heinous aliens.
This ship, the Will of the Emperor, carrying several squads of elite Marines,
was dispatched immediately to deal with this threat.
Upon reaching the hulk, the Ultramarines set to the task with zeal. The
unremitting ghting raged deep inside the dark corridors but the aliens
proved to be extremely tenacious, as if there was something they were
guarding, some dark secret hidden deep within the core of the space hulk.
The scanners of the Will of the Emperor could not penetrate the shielded
chambers deep within the ancient ship, so the commander decided to send
the most seasoned veterans of his command to challenge the vastness of the
hulk and lift the veil of secrecy of the lower levels. Two squads were
assigned to the task, and they prepared with their customary e!ciency,
chanting their prayers and reciting the litanies of hatred.
SPECIAL RULES
Control Room: Theres a Genestealer entry point in the Control Room. If
a Space Marine is in the Control Room at the start of the Genestealer turn,
the Genestealer reinforcements must lurk for 1 turn. Any Blip entering play
must be converted and the Genestealers must enter at the entry point,
one at a time. Any models from the same Blip that cannot enter in the
same turn are lost.
93
123
MISSION ONE: VEIL OF DARKNESS
As the battle raged, the probes of the Will of the Emperor scanned the enormous space hulk,
and yet the alien ship was reluctant to yield up its secrets. The Space Marines were unable to
determine the number of Genestealers aboard, nor could they tell exactly where the clawed
monstrosities were emerging from.
There was a large area near the reactor core that was
impenetrable to the scanners of the Space Marines ship.
The commander decided that the time had come to cut
through the veil of darkness and reveal the secret of the
hulk.
The Tech Marines aboard the Will of the Emperor had
found a way to shut down the ionisation shielding that
interfered with the ships scanners. A fully functional
computer terminal had been detected that could be used
to disable the shielding.
Two squads of Marines were assigned to locate and
access the shielding computer. Due to the massive
radiation leaks from the nearby reactor, the squads
teleporters would not work anywhere near the computer
terminal, so the Marines would have to leave the hulk via
the disposal chute after accomplishing their dangerous
mission.
Objectives
The Marines must reach the computer in the Control
Room, shut down the shielding, and move out of the
section.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealers start with one Blip.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player places the Marines on any
squares within the two deployment corridors.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with one
Blip in the Control Room as marked on the map. One
reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from the Genestealer
entry point in the Control Room.
Special Rules
Shielding Computer: Each turn a Space Marine spends
standing next to the computer terminal marked on the
map without any Genestealers in the Control Room, roll a
D6. On a roll of 4 or more the ionisation shielding is shut
down.
Disposal Chute: Marines who reach the chute can dive
in, blast through the chute's outer door and exit the
craft. The door can be attacked like a normal door, but
cannot be opened manually.
Genestealers can follow Marines into the chute one at a
time and try to kill them before they destroy the outer
door. Once the door is removed, however, a Genestealer
has no chance or catching a Marine who has entered a
chute. Any Marine already in the chute escapes
automatically.
A Marine that exits the ship is removed from the board.
He has escaped and cannot return to the game. A
Genestealer that enters the chute has either become
trapped at the bottom of the smooth-walled chute or, if
a Marine has destroyed the chute's outer doors, fallen
into the bottomless pit of space. Genestealers that die in
this fashion are counted as casualties, but similarly
removed Marines are not.
Victory
If the Marine player is able to access the Shielding
Computer and get two or more Marines off the board
through the exit point, it is classified as a Marine victory.
Any other result is a Genestealer victory.

125
MISSION TWO: TO KILL THE BEAST
The heroism of the squads had paid o", and the shielding of the hulk collapsed. The
scanners of the Space Marine mothership swept the inner levels of the hulk, and the results
were horrifying: the entire inner core of the Hunter of the Void was infested with teeming
swarms of Genestealers.
The few remaining squads of Marines didnt stand a
chance against the numberless alien horde that lurked in
the vastness of the hulk and the Will of the Emperor did
not carry sufficiently powerful weaponry to destroy the
ship. And still the hulk continued on its inexorable course
towards Ultramar.
There was one desperate course of action left open. They
could try to destroy the hulk by sabotaging its decrepit
nuclear reactors. If the Damping Controls were
destroyed, the chain reactions of reactor explosions
would then tear the space hulk apart, along with its
deadly cargo.
The commander ordered all his remaining squads to
make a diversionary attack, while two other squads
would destroy the controls of the vulnerable reactor core
and seal the fate of the hulk.
Objectives
The Marines must destroy the reactor Damping Controls
which are in the Control Room as indicated on the map.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with eight
Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player deploys one full squad on
each of the shaded corridor sections shown on the map.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one Blip in
each of the eight starting points marked on the map.
One reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from the
Genestealer entry point in the Control Room.
Special Rules
Destroying Damping Controls: The Damping
Controls can be destroyed by two hits with a storm bolter
or an assault cannon; a roll of six is needed to count as a
hit. Sustained fire bonuses apply.
Victory
The Marine player wins the moment that the Damping
Controls are destroyed by a second hit of storm bolter or
assault cannon fire. The Genestealer player wins if all the
Marines are killed

MISSION THREE: BACK FROM DARKNESS
The series of explosions began to tear the Hunter of the Void apart. Time was running out,
but two squads of veteran Marines still remained aboard the dying monstrosity. Allowing the
battle brothers to perish on the hulk was unthinkable.
The Will of the Emperor defied the danger and
remained within the range of the Marines teleporters,
while the Sergeant summoned all his strength to lead his
men out of the shielded area of the space hulk.
The retreat was orderly and precise, but it faced the most
ferocious assaults by the clawed Genestealers. It was time
to pit the might of the Ultramarines and their weapons
against the inhuman strength of the alien foe.
Objectives
The Marines must get through the Disposal Chute before
the whole section is destroyed.
Forces
Marines: The Marine player has two full squads.
One consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter
and power sword, a Marine armed with a heavy flamer,
and three Marines armed with storm bolters.
The other squad consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Marine armed with
an assault cannon, one Marine armed with storm bolter
and chain fist, and two Marines armed with storm
bolters.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player starts with five
Blips.
Deployment
Marines: The Marine player places the Marines on any
squares within the two deployment corridors.
Genestealers: The Genestealer player places one Blip in
each of the five starting points marked on the map. One
reinforcement Blip arrives per turn from the Genestealer
entry point in the Control Room.
Special Rules
Disposal Chute: Marines who reach the chute can dive
in, blast through the chute's outer door and exit the
craft. The door can be attacked like a normal door, but
cannot be opened manually.
Genestealers can follow Marines into the chute one at a
time and try to kill them before they destroy the outer
door. Once the door is removed, however, a Genestealer
has no chance or catching a Marine who has entered a
chute. Any Marine already in the chute escapes
automatically.
A Marine that exits the ship is removed from the board.
He has escaped and cannot return to the game. A
Genestealer that enters the chute has either become
trapped at the bottom of the smooth-walled chute or, if
a Marine has destroyed the chute's outer doors, fallen
into the bottomless pit of space. Genestealers that die in
this fashion are counted as casualties, but similarly
removed Marines are not.
Victory
If the Marine player is able to get two or more Marines
off the board through the disposal chute it is classified as
a Marine victory. Any other result is a Genestealer victory.

One of fhe many duties of each Chapter of the Space Marines
is to patrol the space 6uEounding theii Chapter's horne world,
Often the Chapter's Terminators are ordered to investigate
shipe with which contact carmot be established. Usually this
involvs nothing more than a toutine impection.
But occasionally, (more often than the Adeptus Astanes
would like) something mote sinister is afoot, and Stealers
have overun tlrc ship. But, then again, that's why *ley've
sent in the Terrninators. As the Marine player, your job
is to
go in and cleanse the ship of the Genesrealer presence. If you
fail, the ship will simply be destroyed by your command ship,
The ship is valuable, however, and you are not to fail.
Tlrc Space Hulk Mission Generator :'lses a set of geotiles to
allow you to design an alrnost infinite number of different
missions in which you can simulate just
such a
'ioutine
investigation' gone awry. You can use Teminators from aly
Marine Chapter you wish and play as many of these scenarios
as you like. Situatiois like rhis crop up regularly in nearly
every sector of Irnperial space.
THE GEOTILES
A geotile is a card depicting a portion of a Space Hulk map.
When these cards are arranged together properly, they fom a
layout ftom which a firll-size board caJI be constructed. The
set of geotiles in Deathwing are nwnbered from 1 to 10 to
assist you in randornly selecting thern to design a layout
One way to do this is by rolling a D10. Ten-sided dice should
be available at the same store at which you purchased
Deathwing. AJre''larively, get a deck of cards and remove ten
cards ftom the deck, numbered 1 !o 10.
One player randomly generates a mmrbe! from 1 !o 10 and
then taLes the correspolding tile and places it on a convenient
spot on the table. The second player then generates 6nother
number conesponding to an unused tile and places the tile so
that at least one corridor cormects with a corridor on any of
the tiles that have alteady been placed. Each player takes it in

THE SCENARIOS
Roll a D6 and refer to the table below to find out which
scenario you will play. A full explanation of each scenario
apFE.us m Mission Generator Scena.rios
THE MARINE FORCE
The Marine player and his forces must be chosen using the
method presentd in the Terminalor Force Lr'.r, section of tlis
rulebook. While the Madne player is seleating his force, rhe
Stealer player should set up the boald designed with the
geotiles.
After the board has been set up, the Marine player should add
two hve-square-long corridors to dre layout if he can. These
are the Marines' deployment areas. Any remaining open-
ended colridors on the board can be used as Genestealet entry
points.
THE GENESTEALER FORCE
Roll a D6 and refer to the Genestealer Force Toble to
determine the size of the Genestealers' force. The table
provides the following pieces of inforrnation:
Reinforcements: This is the maxirnum number of Blios the
Stealer player can bring ino play each tum, alrhough hL may
bring in less than this nwnber or even take no reinforcernents
ar dl.
Tot al Bl l ps: Thi s i s t he t ot al number of Bl i ps (not
Genestealers) that the Slealer player may use over the course
of the scenario, The Marine player must keep track of the
number of Blips the Stealer playe! has used, either on a piece
of scrap papr or on the roster sheet provided at the back of
this rulebook.
Ambush Couniers
The Stealer player may use up to four arnbush counters in
each of these scenarios. Ambush counters do not count
agaifft the total number of blips fte Stealer player may use.
STARTING PLAY
The Marine player must set up his force on the backmost
squares of his deployment coridors unless the scenario
briefing lells him to do otherwise. He can use either or both
deployment aleas, as long as all members of a squad are
placed in the s:ime area. Squads cannot be broken up and
have their members deployed in differcnt areas.
If there are loo msny Marines to fit in the deployment areas,
add enough straight corridor sections to those coridors to
allow all of the Marines to set up in them. If you don't have
enough sectiors left to do this, queue any spare Marines in
irnagiury conidon anached to fte deploymenr rreas, In tlis
case, fte lead Marines deploy on the frontmost squares.
Play then proceeds to the fust turn of drc game. Note fiat the
Stealer player never has any starting forces in drese scenarios.

3: PERI METER DEFENCE
Genestealers often launch furious counter-artacks ro break
through the cordon of tsoops around a defensive perimeter. If
they can treak through, they know that they will carch any
reinforcements as tlrcy anempt !o deploy and should easily be
able to wipe them out.
Obiective

This campaign game covers a complete Marine operation to
clear a Stealer-infested spacecraft by linking logether all of
the Missioa Generator Scenarios except Breakout. One
p)ayer controls a large force of Marines selecled from the
force list. The other player contols the Cenestealers.
THE MARINE FORCE
As in the normal Mission Generator Scenarios, the players
must each secredy male a bid for the Marine force, and the
player who makes the lowest bid gets to play rhe Marines. In
the carnpaign garne, however, the playcrs may bid up to 125
poinb for Ole Marine force (rather than up to 50).
Wloever bid the lowest arnount mus! now buy his force of
Marines. He rnay buy any nurnbr of squads as long as their
total point value does not exceed the amount of his bid and
the force does not include more than one Captain. He should
neady record his fotce on some roste! sheets.
The force that tlle Marine selects represelts all of the men he
has available for the entire campaign garne. At the starr of
each scenario, he can select any number of squads ftom those
that he has available. However, a squad may not be selected if
any of its members took part in the last scenado that was
Dlaved.
I
I
Afier each scenario, the Marine player must update his master
force rosler, noting any casualties that were suffered by the
squads that took pan. Arnrnunition and Lib,rarians' psi points
are automatically replenished at the end of each scenario. If
the squad iJ used in a fun[e scenado, it can only use those
members that are still alive. At the same time, the Marine
player is allowed to break up squads and distribute their
members arnong other squads that have suffered casualties, so
long as no squad ever ends up with more than hve Marines.
For example, Squad A has
just
completed a scenario and has
beor reduced ro a Sergeant and a Marine, while Squads B artd
C have each lost one Marine. The Marine player decides to
break up Squad A, giving the Sergeant to Squad B and the
Marine to Squad C. Note that Squads B and C will not be
available for the next scenario, as ihey now contain membets
from Sauad A, which took
part
in the last scenario.
THE GENESTEALER FORCE
The Stealer player may enter two reinfotcement blips per tum
and has a total of 125 blips !o use over the coutse of the entie
campaiga. The Marine player must keep track of the number
of Blips the Stealer player uses in each game, and when this
reaches 125, t he St eal er pl ayer may not ent er any more
reinforcements in that or any future scenano.

M/SSION GENERAIOR CAM PAIGN
WINNING THE CAMPAIGN
The Marine player wins dre campaign if he wins the Searc,h
dn4 Desto' scenario. The Stealer plsyer wirs by beaking
the Madne force, The Marine fotcc is broken if there are no
Marines available to trke part in a renario, eidrer because
they are all dead or because they were all used in the lsst
scenario. Note that tlre Marhe playq mus! if he c8& allocate
at least one squad to lake pst in each scenario.
THE SCENARIOS
The players must play the following scenarios in the order
shown. Use the geotiles to generate the board for each
scenario ru ess told to do odrerwise. The following additional
rules apply to each scenario when it is played as part of a
camparSn.
Recon
Teleporting is a risky business at best. Errots oftetr result in
the Marine materializing within a solid object, which is
always f*al. Roll 2D6 for Marine that is releported, On a roll
of 2, the Marine is killed by a teleporter malfrmction. Marine
casualties zuffered during telepofiation do count as casualties
widr reged to the victory conditions for dds scenario. (Only
roll for casualties when releporting to the Stealer-infested
ship, never when teleponing back to safety.)
The Marine cannot opt to teleport Madnes into the hulk after
this stage of the game as it is considered too dangerous for
several reasbns, Marines can only bleport onto lhe ship one
at a time and only inm unshielded areas, Also, there is a
moment of di sori entati on i mmedi atel y fol l owi ng
matedalisatiorl Thus, without tjrc element of surprise, those
Marines later teleported onto the ship would certainly be
irnmediately kiled by the alerted Cenesteale$.
When this scenario has been completed, ploceed to the
Establishing a Perimeter sce'rwio.
Estoblishing o Perimefel
If the Marine loses this scenario, it must be played again. If
played more than once, the Marine player may choose to
either use the same board layout or generate a new one. Keep
on playing drc scenario until the Marine player manages to
win or the Marine force is broken or runs out of boarding
torpedoes. If Ole Marine wins this scenario, proceed to the
P er bncter Deferoe sceruio,
The Marine player has a total of four boarding torpedoes,
each of which can be used to ca'ry 5 Madnes. Each torpedo
may only be used once per carnpaign. If the Marine loses this
scenario and has to play it again, he rnay only use his
remaining torpedoes. If he has none left, he loses the
campaign.

Perimefer Defence
Use 0rc same board lay-out as was used for tJts Establish@
a Perineter scenaio. hstesd of choosing four Steale( enEy
areas to be scwe4 tlre four entry aers that rvre secued at
the end of the last scenario rernain secured for this scenario.
The Marim player nust secredy record which squads he will
use for this sceoorio. The Stealer player rhen has the option of
either using the forces he has near the perimeter to mount a;l
attack or keeping them in tesewe to tie down the Marine
playe.t's forces.
If dle Stealers do not 8nrck, the squads chosen by de Marine
may not be used in any further scenarios, as tlrey must rcmain
on duty to gusrd the pedmeter.
If the Stealer player makes the .Back, the scenrrio is
Played

into reserve, as the Mednes know drat drc local Stealet forces
have beefl spent in the altlck.
In any case, the Stealr player does not receive the 10 extra
blipc rnentioned in the non-campaign briefing.
If the Marine player loses the scenario, he also loses one
additional squad ftom those under his commdld that did not
Iake part il the scenario. This represens the Marines who
were killed by the Genesteale$ drat got to his reat zone. The
Madne playe! may choose which squad is lost. Play then
proceeds to the Rard scenado.
Roid
The Ma ne player must mount this operation as quickly as
possible, else the Magi will wake up before he can get to
them. The more squads he uses, the longer the scenario will
take to organise and the greater the chance of the Magi
getting away. To represent this, roll a D6 when a Madne see"s
the cyogenic unks for dre first time. If dle roll is less than
the number of squads the Matine player chose for the
scenari o, the Magi have
8ot
away, and the Mari nes
automatically lose the scerErio.
A Marine csn be teleport d o safety from any of the squares
on dre Marine entry areas. Carry on playing rhis scenario until
all the Marines are dead or have telported b safety.
If the Marine player loses this scenario, Ie Slealr Magi are
awakened srd able o use their psychic powers !o disrupt lhe
Madnes' attack. This is represented by the following rules:
1. The Marine player must subttact three points ftom drc
number of command
points he recrives each turn in any
funre scenarios,
2. The time he has to complete each tum is reduced by
thirty scands in any funrre scenatios.
3. The nurnber of psi points available to any Librariaru is
reduced by 50% in any furure scenarios.
Once dris scenario is completed play immediately

This scenario must be played until either the Marine player
wins the scenario or the Marine force is btoken. If the
Marines win the sceoario, dley have won the campaign, while
if the Stealers win the scenario azd the Marine force is
brokerl the Stealers win the campaign. If the Stealen win tlle
sc.enario without breaking the Mariaes, the scerurio must be

L
These rules can be used to play any of pub$shd Space Hulk
scenarios solitaire, Simply pick out . mission, set up the
board and place the Marines norrnally. You play the Maines
and do not have to use the timef,. You win by fulfiling the
Marine's vicmry conditions. The Stealers are conuolld by
the following rules.
GENESTEATER FORCES
The Stealers begin the gane widr the same number of Blips,
and reaeive rcinforcernents. as normal.
Plocing Blips
Draw the Blips at random from fte Blip cup. Place one Blip
at each entry are4 starting with dre entry area nearest to a
Marine, then the secoDd nearest and so on rmtil all of dre
Blips have been placed. In case of a tie, you choose which
one of the closest, empty ntry areas the Blip is to be placed
at.
Blip6 are nevr forced to lurk irr an entsy area and can enter
play even if a Marine is within 6 squares. They may nol
however, be placed on entry ateas that have beell. secued (see
lfew.Ra/es). If drcre are more Blips dran entry areas, excess
Blios are lost.
AU Blips are then turned face up and replaced with the
apfofiatE fltmber of Genestealt tno&ls in lhe same order
in which the blips rrere placed. If you don't have enough
models, the excess Genestealers are lost, but they do not
cormt 8s casualties for victory cdditions, RetEn the Blips to
their cup after you have replaced them widr models.
Plocing Ambush Counlers
If I mission allows the use of dnbush counters, but does not
specifically state when tlrey should be deployeA (as Cloud
Rr/,rtgt's Last Stond does), use the following rules. If the
mission tells you when to use anbush counters, follow the
rules below for placement, but do['t roll to determine
placernent nrrns, .
,
Beforc your fist tum, rcll a D6. Draw an ambush result
counter at rhe begirming of that nrm. For example, if you roll
a 5, draw an ambush result coulrter on turn 5.
Any time you draw an ambush result counter, it counts
againrt the number of teinforcement Blips the Stealet$ get
tlnt tunL For instance, if the Stealers would nomally get two
Blips erch trEn, on lhe $m you use .n ambush cormter, the
Steale$ only get one Blip in addition to thal counter.
The mission briefing giees the Genesteale$ 3 Blips per
turn. Thc eltry arco to tle top of the tnap section is
f|e
squarcs away
from
the Mairc. The
Jbst
Blip is placed
thcre (A). The other two entry &eas are both sb squares
away. The renaiaing two Blips can be placed at these
en!ry areat in aa) order (B), If Stalerc had orlt lnd two
Blips pet turi, you would choose nhich eitr, afeo to
place tle second Blip at.

After drawing dre cormter, look at it. If it is a Staler, place a
Genestealer model exacdy 6 squares away from a Marine
(cowrthg by the shortest route), in a square that is not in the
I,OS of any Madne. ff no squares apply, the Sealer is lost.
If dre cormter was anydring other ther a Genestealer, subtract
-1
from the number of command points you receive next turn
(down to a minimum of zero) to rqrreselt the momentary
confirsion caused by whalever was on the cormter. Retum the
counter to its cup after you have looked a! it, in either case.
Then, roll a D6. You must draw another ambush result
coute! on the corresponding tum following. For example, if
you roll a 3, draw a countet on the thid urm following.
SOLO PLAY
GENESTEALER MOVEMENT
Genestealers are moved
-
after any reinforcements have been
placed
-
one at a time, starting with the one closest to a
Marine. In case of a tie, you decide which of the nearest,
unrnoved Cenestealers goes first.
Genestealers always nove by the shortest possible route
towards the closest Marine, until they are in an adjacent
square. They wiu then stop and atlack the Marine.
However, a Genestealer will not en!e! a Madne's I,oS at any
point in its move ur ess it will be able to make at lerst one
attack that tum. lf the Stealer cannot do so, it will move as
close as possible !o a Marine, without levealing itself, and
then stop moving. The only exception to rhis is when a
Marine has 1-OS to a Stealer at the start of its tum, or to a
rcinforcement Stealer's entry square. In either of these cases,
the Stealer must move towards the nearesr Marine. even if it
is not able to a[ack him.

This solo mission based on the Dark Angels Terminator
Company's epic struggle to cauterize the Genstealer
presence on their home planet. To this en4 Cloud Rurner is
leading a spearhead composed of the company's finest
warriors through the Genestealers' crippled starship in an
efrort to reclaim the remains of their ftiend. Otlrcr squads will
follow. Unbekrownst to the Marines, another Genestealer has
stepped forward to tempoiarily take control of dre horde.
The new leader has managed to dampn much of the psychic
shock resulting from dre Patriarch's death. If the Marines
manage io kill that Stealer, the psychic shock from its death
-
compounded by the Patsiarch's still-resonating psychic deatl-
throes
-
causes the remainder of the horde to become
disoriented and unorganized: for the Marines, an easily
manageable foe. Also, to reach drc new leader, the Marines
will have had to have killed dre majority of the horde.
As the name implies, this mission is incredibly challenging.
But to go down fighting for the honour of your pe.ple, that is
a fitting death.

On the frrst nine boards you must get your squad ftom the
entry corridor (the one attached to dle entry alrow on the first
tile) to fte exit corridor
(dle one attached !o the exit arlow on
the second corridor). Play halts as soon as all surviving
Marines are on the exit cotridor. All models are then
renove4 snd a new board is generated. The survivors mu$t
then batde their way drough to the next exit corridor, and so
on, until they reach drc tenth board (see below).

hidden weapon6 cache lilled with flamer and assault cannon
amrnunition. A Flamr or Assault Carmon Marine may take
exta reloads at a cost of 4 APs per reload, The cache must be
in one of fte reloading Marine's front squares.
A reload can be placed either in the weapon or carried by the
Marine as a spare. A Marine can carry one flarner or dree
assault caruron spres at most. Only. Flamer Marines can carry
flamer rcloads, and only Assault Csuron Madnes can carry
assault carmon reloads. Terminator Armour is not designed to
hold ammunition for weapons other than drose it has.
Board l0
To set up the tenth board, follow steps 1 and 2 as described
above. Therq whether it was previously selected o( nol attach
geotile 10 to the exit arlow of the second tile. Attach a five
long coridor to dd entry arrow of dp flust tile as usual.
The cryogenic ta*s/weapon cache counter is not in the dead-
end room at the end of geotile 10. The room is instead
occupied by three Blips and the Genestealer leader. The
leader is in one of 0le comen farftest ftom the door, and a
Blip occupies each remaining comer. These Stealers should
be placed when the hnal board is set up.
When the Madnes move onto the board, the Genestealers in
the dead-end room will all move to attack them as described
ia Solo Play, T\e leada, however, will hcrg back and allow
the oth(s to saqifice their lives to protect him. He moves in
the sarne way as a cormal Stealer, but moves or y after all
other Blip6 and Stealf,s on the board have moved.
You should mark the Genestealer leader so that you can

From PC To Board Game
However, some of the maps have room sec-
tions that would be perfectly replicated us-
ing the tiles form the supplement
Genestealer from the 1st edition, or tiles
published in Games Workshops White
Dwarf magazine for the second edition.
Some of the maps in the appendices use
tiles that were created by the hobby com-
munity. These maps may, and will probably
need to, be modified to suit your own map-
ping resources.

Similarly, in regards to blip sets, some special
rules and missions refer to blips with values of
0 or greater than 3. This is because there
are fan produced blip sets for 3rd ed. that
go from 0-6, some that include genestealer
hybrids and so on. Indeed, these are based
on the expanded blip pool from the
supplements for 1st ed. Players should feel
free to use which ever blip set they prefer.
However, I will caution that most of these
maps would become incredibly difficult for
the marine player if blips of 4-6 were used.

Before you begin play, it would be good to
check that everyone involved knows what
the composition of the blip set is, what rules
you are using, and that everyone is clear on
any house rules you will be playing by.


Modifying missions

This is a purely fan made campaign, which is
based on an official campaign for a
computer game. The missions in this book
were not designed to be balanced on a
board game version. In this edition of the
campaign book, all the missions are
presented as closely as possible to those of
the PC game, so that players can accu-
rately experience on the board the missions
as they were in-game. This means some
missions seem to be very unfairly stacked
against the marine. In the game, you simply
had to replay each mission again and
again until you got lucky and finished it!
However, on the table top, we have other
options...
Introduction

This campaign book offers the chance for
fans of Space Hulk* to play the missions from
the PC and Amiga game by Electronic Arts
using the Space Hulk board game by
Games Workshop.

In anticipation of the release of the 3rd
edition of Space Hulk, I decided that I
would go back to the PC game and re-live
the thrills I remembered from playing it in my
youth! As I played, I began to wonder how
the missions would play if they were
translated onto the board game, and so this
campaign book was born!

I have attempted to make maps that as
closely as possible resemble those of the PC
game. This has had to be an approximation,
as the PC game was not restricted by board
pieces! However, I think Ive come up with
maps that both reflect the spirit and lay out
of the originals. All the maps in the main
section are designed to be played using just
a single Space Hulk set. However, for a more
accurate representation of the original
missions, you may wish to check out the
appendices!

Finally, Id like to say a huge thank you to
Games Workshop and Electronic Arts for
producing a such a fantastic board game,
and computerised version of it! Ive had
hours of fun playing both versions, and
much fun attempting to replicate those
missions here. I hope you enjoy playing
them as much as I have making them.

Which edition?

There are three editions of Space Hulk, each
with slightly different rules, blip sets, tiles and
so on. So, which should you use for these
missions? That is, of course, entirely up to
you!

I made this campaign for the 3rd edition set,
and as such many maps make use of tiles
that appear in that set.

Flamers

In the PC game, there were no board
sections, so flamers worked differently to
any of the editions of the board game.
When fired, a flamer affected a 3x3 square
(nine squares in total).

When fired, any single square is targeted,
even if this means some of the 3x3 square
goes off the board. This square is hit, and
represents the centre rear square of the 3x3
square, with the square extending away
from the direction of fire, as shown below (X
represents the target square):

The red squares represent those board
squares that will be affected by the flamer.
The blue squares show those parts of the 3x3
square that are now off the board. This 3x3
square cannot pass through closed doors
and bulkheads, or walls.

The flamer will use the rules for determining
kills specified in the rule book of the edition
of Space Hulk you are using.

Flamers in the PC game are also able to self
destruct, as long as at least one shot of
ammunition is left. This costs 1AP, and will
instantly kill the marine who opted to self
destruct. The square the marine was stand-
ing in, and all adjacent squares, are then
counted as flamed. These flames cannot
pass through closed doors and bulkheads,
or walls.

Ammunition works as per normal.
If you find that a mission is not working as a
board game variant, agree with your
opponent what alterations you will make in
order to balance things out. This could be
as simple as adding an extra terminator to
the marine players force, or as complex as
a redesigned map and new special rules.
As long as each player agrees to them, it
should be fine.


Weaponry

Some of the weapons worked differently in
the PC game to those in the various editions
of the board game. If both players agree,
you could replace the rules for the edition
you are using with the following:

Assault Cannons

Assault cannons work in a very similar way
to the rules in the version you are working
with. However, they begin the game with
only 10 shots each. This is a balance against
the fact that combined with Let the tech-
priests bestow you with weapons of destruc-
tion, which would allow up to ten assault
cannons to be fielded!

A paper and pencil record will be needed
to be kept of how many shots have been
fired by each marine armed with assault
cannons. It will be the responsibility of the
Genestealer player to keep this record, but
it must be freely available to the marine
player at all times.

The assault cannon can also be fired on Full
Auto for 2APs. This fires all remaining
ammunition in a single salvo. This terrifying
volley will destroy anything in its path,
including bulkheads, which can be
destroyed as if normal doors!

When firing a Full Auto shot, a line is drawn
dead ahead from the firer. When the first
object is hit, roll to kill as normal. If successful,
the shot carries on to its next target. If it
fails, deduct one from the amount of
ammunition at the point of firing, and roll to
kill again. If successful, the shot carries on. If
not, deduct another point of ammunition
and re-roll to kill. This continues until the
ammunition count reaches 0, or the shot hits
a wall, at which point the shot is over.
148
General Special Rules
As much of the board will not be revealed
during the majority of the game, the
genestealer player will need a copy of the
mission map on which to mark any events
that happen off the revealed map, such as
blip movement. As soon as a blip, C.A.T,
genestealer, or other model etc, moves
onto a section of the map that is revealed,
it is placed on the main board. However, it
may move off the revealed map again if it
wishes to/is forced to.

In such missions, the genestealer player will
be acting as a games master, and should
act accordingly. Discretion may be used in
revealing board sections. For example, a
terminator is facing down a long straight
corridor of shorter board sections, and as
such has a much reduced visibility that he
would in reality. In such instances, good
gamesmanship should win through, and
additional map sections revealed. A good
rule of thumb is that a storm bolter has an
over watch range of 12 squares. If a
models Line of Sight (LoS) is clear, yet the
revealed map is much shorter than this (say,
around 6 tiles or less), then an additional tile
or two could be revealed.


Let the Techpriests bestow you
with weapons of destruction...

Some missions allow the marine player to
equip his squad as he chooses. There are no
limits on how the marine player can arm his
squad, as long as they are equipped with
weapons for which there are rules in the
main Space Hulk Rulebook.

Example:
The Marine player has a squad of one
sergeant and four marines to complete a
mission in which several rooms needs to be
flamed. He equips his sergeant and one
marine with storm bolters and power swords,
and the final three marines with flamers and
power fists.

A pencil and paper will be needed to help
keep track of ammo spent etc.
The Hivemind has blinded our
sensors...

Some missions in the Deathwing campaign
will specify that the hulk begins the game
unmapped. In such circumstances, the
marine player is forced to explore the map,
revealing more and more of the catacombs
as they advance.

When the mission begins, any board section
that a terminator is stood upon, and all
board sections within two tiles of that on
which a terminator is stood, will be revealed.
As the terminators advance into the map,
more and more of the map will be
revealed. Every time a terminator lands on a
new board section, any additional board
pieces are added.
A terminator begins at point A. All the blue
board sections are revealed, as they are
within two tiles of his location. The terminator
uses 2 APs to move to point B, and so the
red tiles are now placed, again as they are
two tiles away from the board section he is
currently on. Using 2 more APs, he advances
to point C, and so the turquoise section is
revealed.
10
149
Ambush!

Some missions allow the Genestealer player
to use of ambushes.

Your normal blip pool is used for generating
ambushes, unless the specific mission
instructions say otherwise. Only blips of 0, 1
or 2 genestealers may be used as
ambushes. If any other number is drawn, the
blip can only be placed normally, via entry
areas. If the mission does not have entry
areas, the blip is lost, and no further blips are
drawn. Blips lost in this way do not count
towards casualty numbers.

You many only place one blip as an am-
bush per turn, unless otherwise stated.

If a blip can be placed as an ambush, it
can be placed anywhere on the board that
a blip could normally occupy (so no
appearing inside closed doors!), as long as
there are at least 6 squares between it and
any terminator model. If placed within a
marines LoS, then the rules for Involuntary
Conversion are followed (see main rule
book).
If at all possible, the miniatures the marine
player uses should follow the What You See
Is What You Get principle; if a model is
armed with assault cannon and Powerfist,
the terminator in the game should be
armed thus. If a marine player wishes to
proxy a piece of equipment, for example
claiming that a model armed with storm
bolter and power fist actually has a storm
bolter and power sword, then the
genestealer player must agree to this before
the game begins. Should the genestealer
player feel that too many proxies are being
used, and that they will be difficult and
cumbersome to keep track of, he may
refuse the proxies.

Example:
Using the squad described above, the
Marine only has one miniature with a power
sword, and only two heavy flamers. He asks
the genestealer player if he can proxy a
marine with storm bolter and power fist for
the marine armed with a power sword, and
a marine with an assault cannon and power
fist for the final heavy flamer.
The Genestealer player decides that this
wont be too confusing in the game, and
agrees to the proxies.

GENESTEALER PLAYERS, PLEASE CONTINUE
From this point onwards you will find all the information you need to run this campaign. Remember
that in many missions your role will be one of a Gamesmaster, and you may need to keep a record
of many things that need to be kept secret from the marine player. As such, please share with them
what the mission description asks you to, and what ever additional information you decide they will
need to ensure you both have a fun, enjoyable campaign!
13 151
Deathwing Missions
for the marine player. This information has
been reproduced in the Appendices of this
booklet, so that you can give the marine
player that information without revealing
special information reserved for you!

Campaign Information

If you are playing these missions singly, this
information can be ignored. However, if you
are playing this as an ongoing campaign,
then this information will tell you how to
adapt the mission based upon the results of
the current or previous missions.

The campaign information will tell you
whether or not you need to record the result
of the mission. Some campaign information
may state that a mission cannot be moved
on from until the Space Marines have
achieved victory, so must be replayed if lost.
Others may state that if the previous mission
was a defeat for the marine player, then
they suffer some penalty this mission, either
in the form of different equipment, fewer
marines or additional genestealers to battle
against!

Playing the Campaign

To play the campaign, simply play each
mission in sequence, keeping note of the
results of each mission, and altering the next
mission accordingly. Before you begin the
campaign, agree on whether or not the
marine player can choose to replay any
mission in which they are defeated, or if
they must move onto the next and accept
the consequences.

Appendices

In the Appendices, you will find a range of
resources you may find useful/informative.
This will include the Space Marine Mission
Briefing handouts, the original map layouts
from the PC game Space Hulk by EA, alter-
native maps for those with 2 boards, and
even an unlimited number of sets and
additional tiles, to play with.
This book contains a total of 21 missions (or it
will do, if you are reading a WIP copy!),
organised into two campaigns, adapted
from the missions in the PC game Space
Hulk by EA.

The first campaign is six missions long, and
details the actions of the Deathwing on the
Planet MaCaellia as they arrive to attempt
to relieve the planet from a second invasion
of genestealers. The second, longer
campaign is 14 missions long, and covers
the Deathwings mission to rescue or
retrieve the bodies of their lost brethren
upon the Sin of Damnation.

How to use this book

As you read through this book, you will find
information detailing each mission in the
campaign. These missions can be played
individually, or as part of an ongoing
campaign, using the extra rules noted with
each map.

For each mission, you will find the following
sections.

Map

The map shows the gameboard on which
you will play. Some missions may use the
The hivemind has blinded our sensors...
special rule, and so will be set up differently,
but most are set up as shown from the
beginning of the mission.

Genestealer Information Box

Any special instructions for you, the
genesatealer player, are noted here. This
will include the usual starting and reinforce-
ment blips information, as well as any mis-
sion specific instructions they will need in
their role as GM.

Space Marine Information Box

This box includes the information that will be
shared with the marine player, including the
mission background, squad details, mission
objectives and any other special instructions

MaCaellia Campaign
153
Campaign 1
MACAELLIA
The Deathwing arrived in system just beyond the orbit of MaCaellia.
Alarm claxons rang almost instantly as the vast bulk of a space hulk
was detected in orbit around the planet, and the presence of xenos
life forms on the surface. It took only moments to confirm the hulk as
the Sin of Damnation. Crew serfs made the sign of the aquila and
muttered prayers for protection to the Emperor of mankind at the
mere mention of its name, such was the weight of the legends sur-
rounding this evil craft.

Commander Xovius determined, as Lithonius had before him, that his
priority was to attempt to relieve the planet from the alien incursion. If
left unchecked, then he may have no choice but to order
exterminatus, and cleanse the planet from orbit with virus bombs.
Such an act would result in the deaths of an unknown number of hu-
man survivors on the planets surface. His aids of the Adeptus Admin-
istratum implored him to do so immediately, but Xovius would not so
easily abandon a people that had once provided aspirants to his
chapter. He knew some of his older battle brothers hailed from this
very planet. That alone was all the justification he required to mount a
rescue attempt.

Lithonius and his brothers must wait.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must stop any terminators exiting the board.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. Use the whole blip
pool. All blips enter using the Ambush! Special rule
(see pg 9).

Unmapped:
This mission uses the The hivemind has blinded our
sensors special rule. See pg 8.
Terminator Information
The hivemind has blinded our sensors.
Objectives:
One terminator must exit via one of the exit points
marked in blue.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad is available for your command; five
terminators armed with storm bolter and power
fist.
Menacing Images
Mission Background
The warriors of the Deathwing arrived on the planets surface, just outside the entrance to the
catacombs. Something was interfering with their scanners - an alien presence had been detected, but
the layout of the labyrinth was unclear. They would need to rely on their wits to find their way. Blessing
their weapons, they descended into the darkness.
Campaign Information:
Note which exit the marines reach, you will need it
for the next mission. The campaign cannot continue
until a marine has successfully exited the board.
At location B is a ancient text that may throw light
upon the situation on MaCaellia. If recovered, the
Marine player may use 2 terminators in the next
mission, instead of just one.
16
155

Witch Hunt
Mission Background
The Spearhead returned victorious, but with troubled spirits. The force of the alien psychic presence,
that had blinded the sensors so completely, had troubled even the staunchest amongst them. It was
decided that Inquisitor Sabathius would press on ahead. His psychic wards were stronger that that of
any amongst the Deathwing, and he could use his own powers to see what their scanners could not.
Sabathius could seek out the source of the taint and destroy it, leaving the way clear for his comrades
in the Deathwing.
Campaign Information:
The marines enter from the equivalent point from which they exited on their first mission. If the text artefact was
recovered, then the marine player may use an additional terminator, armed with storm bolter and power fist.

Take note of who wins this mission, as the outcome will affect the following mission.
Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must stop any terminators exiting the board.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. Use the whole blip
pool.

For this mission, you may not examine your blips
before placing them.

You may use the Ambush! Special rule for this
mission. However, if you choose to place blip as
an ambush and it is subsequently revealed to be
worth 3 or more genestealers, then the blip is
removed as a scanner malfunction. Blips lost in this
way do not count as casualties.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
One terminator must exit via one of the exit points
marked in blue.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad is available for your command; one
terminator armed with storm bolter and power
fist. Randomly determine which deployment
point is used (I.e. number them and roll a D6)
If playing as a campaign, and the Marines
retrieved the ancient text, share the following:
Brother Matias, an old friend of Sabathius, could
not let him face the dark alone. Arming himself
with his power glove and storm bolter, he
followed Sabathius into the gloom.
Instead of deploying only one terminator this
mission, you may use two. Place the second
terminator in an adjacent square to Sabathius.
17 156

Baneful Icon
of the Foe

Mission Background
Sabathius had reached
the deepest section of
the catacombs. The
strength of the alien
presence was almost
overpowering, but he
willed himself onwards.
As he moved closer to
his final target, his
senses detected an
object; not alien, but
human made! The fates
seemed to weave
around this object like
moths to a flame. He
know he could not
leave this object
behind.

If he could recover it,
and use the nearby
coms room to inform
the others that the
psychic threat had
been neutralised, then
they could scour the
alien filth from this
planet for good.
Genestealer Information
Place an item to represent an object to represent
an alien icon at the spot marked X (highlighted in
red) and a second object to represent the arte-
fact at point A (highlighted in purple). Genesteal-
ers may not interact with the artefact. Also, they
may not open or destroy the door into the exit
room marked in blue.
Objective:
You must kill Sabathius.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
Remove all blips of value 3 or more from your blip
pool. You receive no starting blips.
Each turn after the icon is destroyed, you receive
one reinforcement blip. Each entry area is num-
bered. Roll a D6, and the blip arrives at the
corresponding entry point. On a roll of a 6, you
may choose which entry point your blip arrives
from.
Tip: before the icon is destroyed, you could always
secretly roll a D6, giving the Marine player the
feeling that his fate is in the hands of chance!
Terminator Information
Objectives:
Sabathius must destroy the xenos icon, which
can be killed like any genestealer (including with
sustained fire). He must also collect the artefact
at point A, and transport it to the coms-room
marked in blue. The mission ends when Sabathius
closes the door to the room.
Artefact:
The artefact can be picked up by standing in
the same square, or in an adjacent square
facing the object. It costs 1AP (or CP) to pick up.
If Sabathius is fights in close combat, he will drop
the artefact in the square he is standing in. If he
survives, he may retrieve it for 1AP.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Sabathius is alone, armed with storm bolter and
power fist.

Campaign Information:
If the genestealer player won the last mission,
read the following text to the Marine player:
Despite his wounds, Sabathius eventually
managed to make his way into the deepest of
the catacombs. However, the delay may have
cost him greatly. He sensed the dark presence of
xenos before him.
Assign a number to each room, and roll a D6
Place a randomly selected blip in the room to
which you allocated the number rolled. A roll of
a 6 allows you to freely choose the room.

If the marine player won, then Sabathius may
re-draw command points, just as if he were a
Terminator Sergeant, in this and all subsequent
missions in which he is involved.

Again, note who wins this mission.

157

Deliverance

Mission Background
The artefact Sabathius
had sensed was a
com-beacon, marked
with Dark Angel iconog-
raphy! Could this be
one of the very devices
used by Lithonius as he
boarded the hulk? If so,
how had it ended up
here? It could almost
have been a lure,
something to draw the
Deathwing to this
place. Surely the foul
genestealers were not
capable of such things?

Whatever the meaning
of the artefact, the
xenos presence was
increasing. Without a
solid perimeter, the
terminators could find
themselves trapped.
During the spearheads
initial advance, several
bulkheads had been
identified. If these could
be sealed, the xenos
could be held at bay
almost indefinitely.
Genestealer Information
Objective:
All terminators must be killed before all the bulk-
heads are sealed.
If you are playing this as a campaign, continue
play until all genestealers that are not trapped
behind bulkheads are dead. This may result in the
marine player not having the artefact in their
possession when the mission ends, which will
affect the next mission.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
Use your normal blip pool. You receive 1 starting
blip, which may be placed at any entry point on
the left hand side of the board as seen on the
map above, and two blips per turn.
Bulkheads:
Genestealers may not interact with the bulkheads
marked in blue. They cannot open, close or
assault them.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
All the doors marked in blue are bulkheads that
must be sealed. The mission will end when all four
bulkheads are closed.
If you are playing this as a campaign, please
read to the marine player.
Sabathius is still carrying the artefact*. The rules for
it are the same as the last mission. Although not a
condition of victory, ensuring a squad member
has the artefact when the missions ends will help
you next mission. *If Sabathius is still alive.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient. Sabathius is
deployed in a room (see map for terminator
spawn icons), and four additional marines are
deployed in the lower corridor. All are armed with
storm bolter and power fist.
Campaign Information:
If Sabathius died last mission, he is not deployed in the upper room. Instead, a fifth terminator is placed in the lower corridor,
armed with storm bolter and power fist. Place the artefact back where it was at the beginning of the previous mission.
When the mission is over, record which side won. If the marines win this mission, also record if Sabathius survived, how many
other terminators survived and whether or not the artefact was being carried by any of them.
19 158

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must stop any terminators exiting the board
with the artefact.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. Use the whole blip
pool. Blips may enter using the Ambush! Special
rule (see pg 9).

You receive two blips per turn.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
A terminator must carry the artefact off the
board via the lower corridor.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Two squads are available for your command;
four terminators armed with storm bolter and
power fist, who are deployed in the lower
corridor, and three additional terminators, armed
as above, who will enter part way through the
mission (see above).
Extrication
Mission Background
The bulkheads to the lower levels had been sealed, but it had not been enough. Genestealers broke
through ancient walls, or clambered through corridors that would be inaccessible to a terminator. The
artefact discovered by Sabathius must be recovered before the entire system of catacombs became
overrun. It seemed that for both the warriors of the Deathwing and MaCaellia, time was running out.
Campaign Information:
When rolling to determine when the survivors of Deliverance arrive, if the marines won the last
mission, they may add 1 to the score they roll. If the marines won, and the artefact was being
carried by a terminator, the marines may choose to re-roll the result, in addition to the +1. Share
this with the Marine player. If the marine players lost the last mission, play the mission as normal.
This will mean the marines may not re-draw command points this game. Note who wins this
mission.
Survivors of
Deliverance
A squad of three
terminators will arrive
part way through this
mission, one of whom
(chosen by the
marine player) will be
carrying the artefact.
To determine when
this is, beginning on
turn 2, roll a D6. On a
roll of a 6, the squad
arrive. On turn three,
a roll of 5 is needed,
and on turn four a 4
is required, and so
on. The squad will
automatically arrive
on turn 7 if it has not
yet done so.


The squad of three is
replaced by the
terminators who
survived Deliverance.
If this includes
Sabathius, and he
has gained the

Purge
Mission Background
The mission to save MaCaellia was faltering. With each passing moment it was becoming clear that
the depth of the genestealer infestation went much deeper than a recent invasion. Strange icons were
found scrawled on walls depicting genestealers in an almost reverential way, and more and more of
the foul spawn welled up from the depths of the planet. It was clear that only one option was left open
to the warriors of the Deathwing. To ensure its success, they must destroy the sub-control room, sealing
as many of the lower catacombs as possible, trapping the genestealers in a single location.
Campaign Information:
The marine player cannot continue the campaign until this mission is completed. Whoever won the last game goes
first this mission.
Genestealer Information
Objective:
You kill all the terminators armed with flamers
before they flame the control room.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips, and receive two blips
per turn. Use the whole blip pool.


Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must flame the control room, marked on the
map in red.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient; one Sergeant with
power sword and storm bolter, one terminator
with storm bolter and power fist, and thee termi-
nators with heavy flamers and power fists. You will
need to keep a paper and pencil record of how
many shots each of your marines has fired.

3. Extrication
Once the bulkheads are sealed, the marine
player must get the artefact off the board
via the lower corridor. Five additional
terminators are placed in the lower corridor
the turn after the last bulkhead is sealed.
The genestealers now open entry areas
marked with the double arrows, receive two
blips per turn and may use the Ambush! rule
until the artefact is removed from the
board.

4. Purge
Once the artefact has been removed, the
marine player receives two terminators
armed with SB and PF, and three marines
with Heavy Flamer (HF) and PF. At this point,
the bulkheads revert to being normal doors,
and the genestealers cease using the entry
areas marked with double arrows. The
genestealer player now receives two blips
per turn, and one additional blip for each
part of 5 marines that are left of the survivors
of the first 3 sections (so if there are 3 survi-
vors, they would get a total of 3 blips,
whereas 6 survivors would offer a total of 4
blips. If that six is then reduced to 4, the
genestealer player would receive one less
blip from then on, to the minimum of 2 when
only the 5 new marines are left alive.

The terminators armed with Heavy Flamers
must be escorted to the control room,
where they can flame the room and thus
win the campaign.

Any other result is a victory for the genes-
tealers.
Playing the mega-campaign
This campaign works following a rough
narrative sequence, and you will probably
need to adapt the information here to suit
yourself and the players involved. It will suit
multi-player action, with different players
commanding different squads, although a
system of distributing command points will
need to be chosen! Multilple players could
command the genestealers as well, each
player taking charge of genestealers in a
certain section of the map.

Mission Sequence
1. Baneful Icon of the Foe
The marine player must destroy the psychic
icon marked at point X (red box), before
returning with the artefact A (turquoise box)
to the coms-room (purple box). Doing so will
signal the move to the next part of the
campaign. He begins with 5 terminators with
storm bolter (SB) and power fist (PF).
The genestealer player should remove all
the 3 blips from his blip pool, gets no starting
blips and receives one blip per turn.
Genestealers my enter using the Ambush!
Special rules, of via entry points marked with
a single purple arrow. Ambushes may not
be placed within 12 squares of the Icon or
coms-room.
Once the icon is destroyed, return all the 3
blips to the pool, shuffle it and begin it
again, getting 2 blips per turn, with no
ambushes.

2. Deliverance
Having signalled the destruction of the icon,
the marine player receives 4 reinforcement
terminators with PF and SB, entering placed
on the board in the lower corridor on the
turn after the artefact has reach the coms-
room. The marine player must now seal the
If you have access to around three Space Hulk sets, and print outs of some of the fan-
produced tile sections, you can play the MaCaellia campaign as a single massive mission!
This mega map should (just) fit onto a 7x4 board, or living room floor. If you dont have the
sets to play this, there are plenty of free to download floor tiles for various role-playing
games out there which can be cut into the necessary shapes. In the index, youll find a
copy of the original map from the PC game, and using cut & stick floor pieces, you can

The Loss of MaCaellia
Exterminatus
The virus bombs fell from orbit like meteors.
Hundreds of bombs were released on the
planet, the largest concentration of which
fell directly upon the complex in which the
Deathwing had just been fighting.

More than twenty bombs impacted upon
the catacombs, reducing the whole area,
and a number of the sub-levels of the
complex, to ash.

Xovius watched from his command bridge
as great blooms of fire swept out across the
planets surface in great arcs. Even in his
stern features, a hint of remorse could be
detected. Remorse for those who were as
yet untainted, remorse for the loss of one
more world from the Imperium. He could
only imagine the horrors occurring on the
planet below.; the cries of the just mixing
with those of the tainted, as their flesh
washed off their bodies as the virus took
effect, before the necrotic gasses released
from the death of a planet burst into flame.

From the area above the complex a rolling
black could billowed forth, enveloping the
planet until the entire surface was shrouded
in black ash. MaCaellia, former recruitment
world of the Dark Angel Chapter, was dead.

The wounded and dead of his forces were
the first to re-board the Battle barge of the
Deathwing. Medics saw to those who could
be saved, whilst chaplains saw to those who
could not. Armour and gene-seed was
recovered, so that the Chapter would
continue, despite the losses suffered today.

Tech marines oversaw the refurbishment
and repair of weaponry and armour as the
Deathwing prepared for their next mission.
None had forgotten what had drawn them
here, and where their path now lay. Ahead
of them lay the most infamous hulk in the
galaxy, one that had claimed the lives of
many of their battle brothers from their own
and other chapters. This battle, which had
already cost so much, had barely begun.
Extraction from
MaCaellia

With the sub-control room destroyed, and
the genestealers in the complex trapped
deep within the earth, the last of Xovius
forces were withdrawn from MaCaellia. As
his forces had battled underground, clergy
of the Imperial Cult had visited every corner
of the world under the watchful eye of the
company chaplain. In every corner of the
world they found shrines dedicated to a
four-armed god, and tales of mistrust of the
demons in white.

In some areas, the Imperial expeditions
were attacked without provocation -
strange, mutated forms leaping in amongst
them and tearing them apart like animals.
Humanoids with an additional, clawed limb
were discovered in many villages, and their
discovery inevitably led to violence. It took
little time to determine that a genestealer
cult was now well established upon
MaCaellia.

It was considered that the depth to which
the genestealer had become embedded in
the culture of the people of the planet
could not have been due to the presence
of the hulk now hanging in orbit above
them. Unless the manic energies of the warp
had somehow altered time here in real
space, it was assumed that a small number
of genestealers must have survived the
original encounter with the Deathwing,
perhaps in some other, smaller catacomb,
or even within one of the villages. From
there, the cult must have spread like a
disease.

With the threat of the Sin of Damnation still
hanging above them, there was neither the
time nor resources to scourge the planet
one village at a time, searching for the few
pure citizens that may remain on the planet.
Xovius had but one option left to him.

With an unreadable expression set upon his
hard features, Xovius ordered extermnatus.

Return to Damnation

Campaign 2
RETURN TO
DAMNATION
The loss of MaCaellia was a painful blow to Commander Xovius,
softened only by the sure knowledge that the souls of those who had
remained uncorrupted on MaCaellia were now with the Emperor,
and that he had done his Duty.

Xovius now turned his attention to the sprawling hulk of the Sin of
Damnation. The foul xenos lurking in its belly would pay for the loss of
MaCaellia, and the mysteries of Lithonius revealed at last.

The communication buoy, seemily used as a lure for the Dark Angels,
would now be turned against their enemies. Contained within its da-
tabanks was the location of Lithonius initial boarding point on the
hulk. The trail was before them, their enemy known and the fury of the
Emperor in their hearts.

This time, victory would be theirs.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must kill at least one terminator.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. Use the whole blip
pool. You receive one blip per turn.

This mission is already heavily stacked against the
marine. To balance things out, you may wish to
allocate a number to each entry, and roll a D6 to
determine which is used. A roll of a 6 would offer a
free choice.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
The central square of the topmost room must be
flamed.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad is available for your command; One
sergeant with powerfist and storm bolter, three
marine with powerfirsts and storm bolters, and
one marine with heavy flamer and Powerfist.
Ante Chamber
Mission Background
The original insertion point used by Lithonius all those centuries ago was indentified using data retrieved
from the artefact recovered from MaCaellia. Initial scans showed that the areas around this point was
filled with xenos, poised as if awaiting the Deathwing to arrive. The decision was taken to use this not as
an insertion point, but as an opportunity to trap a vast number of the foe in one location.
Campaign
Information:

As only one
square needs
flaming, you may
wish to use the
flamer rules as
described on
pg 9.

The marine player
can advance
from this mission
with no negative
consequences -
this area being
given up as an
insertion point.

However, if the
marine player
can indeed
escape with all 5
terminators alive,
they will receive a
significant
advantage in the
following mission.
Share this informa-
tion with the marine
player at the start
of the
mission:

Materials
The corridor
sections marked by
the orange box
are full of
flammable
materials. If flamed,
these sections will
continue to burn
until the end of the
game.

The Perimeter
Mission Background
Before the warriors of the Deathwing could advance into the Sin of Damnation, a perimeter needed to
be established, within which their forces could be mustered. An insertion point was chosen less than a
kilometre away from that used by Lithonius. From there, it would not be difficult to pick up his trail.
Campaign Information:
If the marines won the previous mission, then many genestealers in this sector are now trapped around the insertion
point used by Lithonius, and securing the entry areas will be much easier. No genestealer may enter via an entry point
if a marine is within 6 squares of an entry area. Record if this mission is a win or draw. This mission must be at least
drawn before the marine player can continue the campaign.
Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must prevent the marine player from
establishing a perimeter.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive two starting blips, placed as shown on
the map. You receive two blips per turn.

The door marked by a yellow box is a damaged
bulkhead. Although the genestealers may not
open, close or attack it, the marine player can as
if it were a normal door. However, do not share this
with the marine player. Instead, mark the door out
in some way - you may wish to place some kind of
counter next to it, or position it at an unusual
angle. If the marine player asks about this, share
the following:
Your sensors detect that this door is
malfunctioning, but it is unclear exactly how.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must secure the four squares marked with an
X. If you secure all four locations, you have won.
If you can only secure three, it is a draw. Any
other result is a loss.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad is available for your command; one
sergeant armed with storm bolter and power
sword and four marines armed with storm bolter
and power fists.

Note: In the PC game, the sergeant did not have
a power sword. If you wish to play the mission as
it was originally intended, replace the sergeants
power sword with a power fist.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must kill all terminators before they are able to
exit via the room marked in blue.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips.

You receive two blips per turn.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
Each room marked with a red box must be
flamed. At least one surviving terminator must
then exit by entering the room marked in blue
and closing the door. This door cannot be
destroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of
destruction.
You have one squad; a sergeant and four
marines. You may arm them as you choose.
Funeral Pyre
Mission Background
It was time to take the attack to the genestealers. The route back to the path Lithonius must have taken
passed through what was identified as a clutch of hibernation nests. If these could be destroyed, the
genestealer activity in this sector of the hulk would be brought almost to a end. A nearby sub-reactor
has been leaking flammable gasses into this part of the hulk. Any flamed areas would burn indefinitely.
If used correctly, this could ensure the nests would be utterly destroyed, burning for the rest of time. If
used unwisely, the flames could trap the marines forever.
Campaign Information:
If the marine player won the last mission, then the mission is played as stated. If the mission was a draw, the genestealer player
receives two starting blips. For the purposes of the campaign, this mission can be drawn if all four nests are flamed, but no
terminators then manage to escape. Record the result for the next mission. The marine player must at least draw this mission to
continue.
A nearby sub-
reactor has been
leaking flammable
gasses...
Any flamed areas
will continue to
burn, essentially
forever. Leave any
flamer markers in
place on the board.
You may even
need to make
additional markers,
depending on your
resources.

The gasses that give
this effect are not as
potent as the
promethium of the
heavy flamer. After
a usual flamer shot
would have worn
off, models may try
to pass though the
flames. They are
attacked as if they
had been hit by the
flamer, but 1 from
each dice rolled.
Note: In the PC game, three terminators needed
to escape, not just one.

This mission begins unmapped. Use the rules
detailed on pg 10.
Objectives:
You must recover the C.A.T unit from the hulk. A
terminator carrying the C.A.T must then exit by
entering the corridor marked in blue and closing
the door. This door cannot be destroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of

You have one squad; a sergeant and four
marines. You may arm them as you choose. At
least one marine must have a Powerfist.
Testament to Honor
Mission Background
As the warriors of the Deathwing moved deeper and deeper into the Sin of Damnation, their sensors
were increasingly unable to penetrate the thick hull and masses of twisted metal that made up the
accursed hulk. A C.A.T unit was sent ahead to map out the route, but it failed to return. A Squad was
dispatched to retrieve it, and to push onwards along the path of Lithonius.
Campaign Information:
If the marine player won
the last mission, show him
the approximate location
on his Marine Players
Handout where the C.A.T
unit begins the game. The
Marine player is also
considered to have won
the first roll for C.A.T.
movement (see rules on
how movement works
below).

If the result of the last
mission was a draw, then
he will have to enter the
hulk completely blind!

Record the result of this
mission, as usual.
The C.A.T:
Because the marine player cannot see the board
to control the C.A.T, if they win the roll to see who
control it, the genestealer player moves the C.A.T
the maximum distance it can directly towards the
nearest terminator model.

Descent
Mission Background
The warriors of the Deathwing were entering the very core of the Sin of Damnation, getting closer to the
source of the xenos spawn that infested this hulk, and perhaps to discovering the true fate of their lost
brethren. This ancient part of the hulk was twisted and ruined - many of the old bulkheads were now
jammed in place. Only the firepower of an assault cannon, or the adamantium teeth of a chainfist
could hope to cut a way through the tange of metal that had once been the corridors of a proud ship.
Steeling their souls, the terminators descended deeper into the hulk.
Campaign Information:
If the marines successfully recovered the C.A.T last mission, not only do the marines get to see the full map, but the
Genestealer player receives no reinforcement blips in turn 1. If the Marine player lost the last mission, then this mission
uses the The Hivemind has blinded our sensors special rule. Record the result of this mission as usual.
Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must stop any terminators exiting the board.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. Use the whole blip
pool.

Unless the campaign results mean otherwise, you
receive one reinforcement blip each turn.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
At least one terminator must exit via the exit
points marked in blue by closing the door behind
them. This door cannot be destroyed.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient.

You have one sergeant armed with storm bolter
and Powerfist, one marine armed with storm
bolter and chain-fist, two marines armed with
lightening claws and one marine armed with as-
sault cannon and Powerfist.

Note: In the PC game, the assault cannon marine
had the chain-fist, not the storm bolter marine!
They had a Powerfist instead.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must kill all terminators before they are able to
exit via the room marked in blue.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive four starting blips, placed as shown on
the map, and receive two blips per turn.

In addition, before selecting your reinforcement
blips, roll a D6. on a roll of a 6, you receive two
additional reinforcement blips!
Terminator Information
Objectives:
Each room marked with a red box must be
flamed. At least one surviving terminator must
then exit by entering the room marked in blue
and closing the door. This door cannot be
destroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of
destruction.
You have command of two squads, each with a
sergeant and four marines. You may arm them as
you choose.
Web of Flames
Mission Background
A squad of terminators sweeping the area behind the advance squads made an alarming discovery. A
nest of hibernating genestealers had been completely bypassed, and were now on the wrong side of
the advancing perimeter! If these nests could not be purged, the Dark Angels would find them selves
attacked from in front and behind.
Campaign Infor-
mation:
If the marine player
won the last
mission, after the
starting blips have
been placed, they
may choose to
remove two of
them. The
advance squads
did a more
complete job than
had been realised!

If the previous
mission was lost,
then they play the
mission as normal.

If the marines
destroy each nest,
but fail to escape,
the mission is
considered a draw.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must prevent the space marines from
destroying the Genestealer Magus and escaping
from the board.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive five starting blips, set out as shown on
the map. You receive one reinforcement blip per
turn.
The Magus cannot take any form of action, nor be
harmed by the cryogenic gas.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must destroy the Genestealer Magus, and at
least one terminator must escape by entering the
corridor marked in blue and closing the door.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Two squads will be sufficient; each has a
sergeant with Powerfist and storm bolter, three
marines with Powerfists and storm bolters, and
one marine with heavy flamer and Powerfist.
To the Emperor
Mission Background
Even as the warriors of the Deathwing closed in upon the inner sanctums of the xenos, doubt was
spreading amongst their numbers. Despite many heroic deeds and untold numbers of enemy dead,
the mission had so far yielded little in the way of definitive reward. However, a chance discovery
offered the opportunity to silence these doubts - a genestealer magus, a psychic hybrid of human and
alien, was found still in cryogenic hibernation. Destroying this abomination would be a grievous blow to
the enemy, and the reward that was desperately needed to ensure the future of the mission.
Genestealer Magus:
The Genestealer Magus is in an
active hibernation chamber.
Starting on turn one, and every
other turn afterwards (so turn 3,
5, 7 etc), the chamber floods
with cryogenic gasses. This gas
works in the same way as if a
heavy flamer had attacked
each square on the board.
However, the destruction of the
Magus will result in damage to
the coolant systems, and
subsequently the gas will cease.
The Magus can be killed just as
if he were a genestealer.
Campaign
Information:

If the Marine player won the
previous mission, then each
sergeant is armed with a power
sword rather than power fist.

If the last mission was a draw, the
mission is played as normal.

However, if the marine player lost
the mission, then the genestealer
player rolls a D6. The result is the
number of turns, including turn
one, in which the genestealer
player receives +1 reinforcement
blips. For example, the stealer
player rolls a 4, and therefore on
turns 1 to 4, they receive two blips
per turn. After this, it reverts to one
blip per turn.

If the Magus is destroyed, but no
terminators escape, then the
game is a draw.
The door marked by a yellow box is a bulkhead,
and can neither be opened or destroyed. Share
this with the marine player as soon as it enters Line
Of Sight (LOS).
172
33
Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must kill all terminators before they can move
the blueprints off the board via their entry
corridor.

Starting blips and reinforcements:
You receive no starting blips. You receive two blips
per turn.

Blueprints:
The blueprints are not placed on the board at the
start. However, as soon as a terminator gets LOS to
them, place them on the board and identify
them.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must recover at least one object from the
hulk. You do not know the location of what you
are searching for.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of
destruction.
You have command of one squad; a sergeant
and four marines. You may arm them as you
choose. At least one model must have a Power-
fist, as only a terminator armed with a Powerfist
may carry an object.
Search for Evil
Mission Background
The mission to discover the fate of Lithonius was given one last chance. However, Commander Xovius
determined that the relentless drive into the den of the xenos must now be tempered with knowledge.
Halting the advance, he ordered squads of terminators to search various key locations of the hulk for
any documents, blueprints, data slates; anything that could guide the terminators in their search.
Campaign Information:
If the marine player won the last mission, they may select one of the genestealer entry point markers and remove it from play. If
the mission was a draw, play the mission as normal. If the marine player lost the previous mission, then the genestealer player
gets one starting blip, which may be placed as per the normal genestealer entry rules. As normal, record the results of the
mission.

You have command of one squad; a sergeant
and four marines. You may arm them as you
choose. At least one marine must be armed with
a heavy flamer.
Seed of the Enemy
Mission Background
At last, the breakthrough Xovius had hoped for arrived. Using data discovered during their last ditch
search, the Dark Angels were able to pin-point the primary brood nest of the genestealers. If two
control sub-sections could be destroyed with flame, then the spread of the xenos through out the ship
could be halted. This would be a crippling blow to the genestealers, and would greatly enhance the
likelyhood of discovering the fate of Lithonius.
Campaign Information:
If the marine player was victorious in the previous mission, then the marine player may select one blip to remove from any of
the starting blips. If the marine player lost, play the mission as normal.
Both of the sections must be flamed in order to secure victory. Any other result is a defeat for the marine player.

Genestealer Information
Objective:
You must kill all terminators capable of carrying
bombs before the bombs are placed.

You receive three starting blips, placed as shown
on the mission map. You receive two blips per turn.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must place demolition charges at each of
the ten squares identified by an X.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of
destruction.
You have command of two squads, each con-
sisting of a sergeant and four marines. You may
arm them as you choose. At least one marine
must be armed with a Powerfist.
Tech Support
Mission Background
The righteous fury of the heavy flamers carried by the Deathwing had not been enough. The xenos
endured. Time was now of the essence. If the hibernating broods were to fully awaken, the Dark Angels
would be overwhelmed. Calling on the advice of his techmarines, Xovius formulated a desperate plan.
A series of demolition charges would be placed at specific points through the system of brood nests,
the entire area could be destroyed, sealing the fate of the genestealers.
Campaign Information:
If both targets were successfully flamed last mission, then the damage done slows the wakening of other genestealers. Before
the game begins, roll a 2D6. This is the number of turns, beginning with turn 1, that the genestealer player only receives 1
reinforcement blip per turn. If the genestealer player won the last mission, then the genestealers are more active than they
otherwise would be. Roll a D3 (a D6, then half the score, rounding up). This is the number of times the genestealer player may
bring an additional reinforcement blip during their phase. This may be done in any turn the genestealer player chooses.

If 0-4 charges are placed before all terminators capable of moving them are dead, the marine player looses the mission. If 5-9
charges are placed, the mission is a draw. If all 10 charges are placed, the mission is a victory for the marines.
Record the result for the next mission.
Demolition charges:
Only terminators armed with Powerfists may carry and activate
charges. It costs 1AP to pick up or place a charge. Terminators
with powerfists begin the mission carrying their charges, other-
wise the charges are left at the feet of the terminator.

Menacing Images
Mission Background
The warriors of the Deathwing arrived on the planets surface, just outside the entrance to
the catacombs. Something was interfering with their scanners - an alien presence had been
detected, but the layout of the labyrinth was unclear. They would need to rely on their wits
to find their way. Blessing their weapons, they descended into the darkness.
Brother Marines,

The hivemind has blinded our sensors.

One terminator must exit via one of the exit
points marked in blue.

Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads
weaponry.
One squad is available for your command;
five terminators armed with storm bolter
and power fist.

Notes:
The enemy has no honour. Be wary of
ambushes.
Witch Hunt
Mission Background
The Spearhead returned victorious, but with troubled spirits. The force of the alien psychic
presence, that had blinded the sensors so completely, had troubled even the staunchest
amongst them. It was decided that Inquisitor Sabathius would press on ahead. His psychic
wards were stronger that that of any amongst the Deathwing, and he could use his own
powers to see what their scanners could not. Sabathius could seek out the source of the
taint and destroy it, leaving the way clear for his comrades in the Deathwing.
Brother Marines,
Your squad will enter the map from the
point they left the previous map.
Objectives:
One terminator must exit via the exit
point marked in blue.

Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads
weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient; one termina-
tor armed with storm bolter and power
fist.

Notes:
Beware of traps.

Baneful Icon of
the Foe
Mission Background
Sabathius had reached the
deepest section of the cata-
combs. The strength of the
alien presence was almost
overpowering, but he willed
himself onwards. As he
moved closer to his final
target, his senses detected
an object; not alien, but hu-
man made! The fates
seemed to weave around
this object like moths to a
flame. He know he could
not leave this object behind.
If he could recover it, and
use the nearby coms room
to inform the others that the
psychic threat had been
neutralised, then they could
scour the alien filth from this
planet for good.
Brother Marines...
Objectives:
Sabathius must destroy
the xenos icon, collect
the artefact at point A,
and transport it to the
coms-room marked in
blue. The mission ends
when Sabathius closes
the door to the room.
Artefact:
The artefact can be
picked up by standing
in the same square, or
in an adjacent square
facing the object. It
costs 1AP (or CP) to
pick up. If Sabathius is
fights in close combat,
he will drop the artefact in the square he is standing in. If he
survives, he may retrieve it for 1AP.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Sabathius is alone, armed with storm bolter and power fist.

Deliverance
Mission Background
The artefact Sabathius had sensed was a com-
beacon, marked with Dark Angel iconography!
Could this be one of the devices used by Lithonius as
he boarded the hulk? If so, how had it ended up
here? It could almost have been a lure, something to
draw the Deathwing to this place. Surely the foul
genestealers were not capable of such things?
indefinitely.
Warriors of the Emperor,
Objectives:
All the doors marked in blue are bulkheads that must be sealed. The mission will end when all
four bulkheads are closed.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient. Sabathius is deployed in a room, and four additional marines are
deployed in the lower corridor. All are armed with storm bolter and power fist.

Terminator Information
Objectives:
A terminator must carry the artefact off the board via
the lower corridor.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Two squads are available for your command; four termi-
nators armed with storm bolter and power fist, who are
deployed in the lower
corridor, and three additional terminators, armed as
above, who will enter part way through the mission (see
below).
If this is a campaign mission, then the three marines will
be replaced by the survivors of Deliverance.
Survivors of Deliverance - A squad of three terminators, one carrying the artefact, will
arrive part way through this mission. To determine when this is, beginning on turn 2, roll a D6. On
a roll of a 6, the squad arrive. On turn three, a roll of 5 is needed, and on turn four a 4 is re-
quired, and so on. The squad will automatically arrive on turn 7 if it has not yet done so.
Extrication - Mission Background: The bulkheads to the lower levels had been
sealed, but it had not been enough. Genestealers broke through ancient walls, or clambered
through corridors that would be inaccessible to a terminator. The artefact discovered by
Sabathius must be recovered before the entire system of catacombs became overrun. It
seemed that for both the warriors of the Deathwing and MaCaellia, time was running out.
Purge - Mission Background: The mission to save MaCaellia was faltering. With each
passing moment it was becoming clear that the depth of the genestealer infestation went
much deeper than a recent invasion. Strange icons were found scrawled on walls depicting
genestealers in an almost reverential way, and more and more of the foul spawn welled up
from the depths of the planet. It was clear that only one option was left open to the warriors of
the Deathwing. To ensure its success, they must destroy the sub-control room, sealing as many
of the lower catacombs as possible, trapping the genestealers in a single location.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must flame the control room,
marked on the map in red.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your
squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient; one
Sergeant with power sword and
storm bolter, one terminator with
storm bolter and power fist, and
thee terminators with heavy flam-
ers and power fists. You will need
to keep a paper and pencil re-
cord of how many shots each of
your marines has fired.

Terminator Information
Objectives:
The central square of the topmost room
must be flamed.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads
weaponry.
One squad is available for your command;
One sergeant with powerfist and storm
bolter, three marine with powerfirsts and
storm bolters, and one marine with heavy
flamer and Powerfist.
Ante Chamber - Mission Background: The original insertion point used by Litho-
nius all those centuries ago was indentified using data retrieved from the artefact recovered
from MaCaellia. Initial scans showed that the areas around this point was filled with xenos,
poised as if awaiting the Deathwing to arrive. The decision was taken to use this not as an inser-
tion point, but as an opportunity to trap a vast number of the foe in one location.
Flammable Materials
The corridor sections marked by the orange box are full
of flammable materials. If flamed, these sections will
continue to burn until the end of the game.


The Perimeter - Mission Background: Before the warriors of the Deathwing
could advance into the Sin of Damnation, a perimeter needed to be established, within which
their forces could be mustered. An insertion point was chosen less than a kilometre away from
that used by Lithonius. From there, it would not be difficult to pick up his trail.

Objectives:
You must secure the four
squares marked with an
X. If you secure all four
locations, you have won.
If you can only secure
three, it is a draw. Any
other result is a loss.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated
your squads weaponry.
One squad is available
for your command; one
sergeant armed with
storm bolter and power
sword and four marines
armed with storm bolter
and power fists.
Note: In the PC game, the sergeant did not have a power sword.
If you wish to play the mission as it was originally intended, replace
the sergeants power sword with a power fist.

Terminator Information
Objectives:
Each room marked with a red box must be
flamed. At least one surviving terminator must
then exit by entering the room marked in blue
and closing the door. This door cannot be de-
stroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons
of destruction.
You have one squad; a sergeant and four
marines. You may arm them as you choose.
Funeral Pyre - Mission Background: It was time to take the attack to the genestealers.
The route back to the path Lithonius must have taken passed through what was identified as a clutch of
hibernation nests. If these could be destroyed, the genestealer activity in this sector of the hulk would be
brought almost to a end. A nearby sub-reactor has been leaking flammable gasses into this part of the
hulk. Any flamed areas would burn indefinitely. If used correctly, this could ensure the nests would be
utterly destroyed, burning for the rest of time. If used unwisely, the flames could trap the marines forever.
A nearby sub-reactor has been leaking flammable
gasses... Any flamed areas will continue to burn,
essentially forever. Leave any flamer markers in place
on the board.
The gasses that give this effect are not as potent as
the promethium of the heavy flamer. After a usual
flamer shot would have worn off, models may try to
pass though the flames. They are attacked as if they
had been hit by the flamer, but 1 from each dice
rolled.
Testament to Honor - Mission Background: As the warriors of the Deathwing
moved deeper and deeper into the Sin of Damnation, their sensors were increasingly unable to
penetrate the thick hull and masses of twisted metal that made up the accursed hulk. A C.A.T
unit was sent ahead to map out the route, but it failed to return. A Squad was dispatched to
retrieve it, and to push onwards along the path of Lithonius.
Terminator Information
The hivemind has blinded our sensors...
This mission begins unmapped. Use the rules
detailed on pg 10.
Objectives:
You must recover the C.A.T unit from the hulk. A
terminator carrying the C.A.T must then exit by
entering the corridor marked in blue and clos-
ing the door. This door cannot be destroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weapons of
destruction.
You have one squad; a sergeant and four
marines. You may arm them as you choose. At
least one marine must have a Powerfist.
The C.A.T:
Because the you cannot see the board to control the C.A.T,
if you win the roll to see who control it, the genestealer
player moves the C.A.T the maximum distance it can
directly towards the nearest terminator model.
183


Descent - Mission Background: The warriors of the Deathwing were entering the very core of the
Sin of Damnation, getting closer to the source of the xenos spawn that infested this hulk, and perhaps to discovering the
true fate of their lost brethren. This ancient part of the hulk was twisted and ruined - many of the old bulkheads were now
jammed in place. Only the firepower of an assault cannon, or the adamantium teeth of a chainfist could hope to cut a
way through the tange of metal that had once been the corridors of a proud ship. Steeling their souls, the terminators
Terminator Information
Objectives:
At least one terminator must
exit via the exit points marked
in blue by closing the door
behind them. This door can-
not be destroyed.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated
your squads weaponry.
One squad will be sufficient.
You have one sergeant
armed with storm bolter and
Powerfist, one marine armed
with storm bolter and chain-
fist, two marines armed with
lightening claws and one
marine armed with assault
cannon and Powerfist.

Note: In the PC game, the assault cannon marine had the
chain-fist, not the storm bolter marine! They had a Powerfist in-
stead.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
Each room marked with a red box must be
flamed. At least one surviving terminator
must then exit by entering the room marked
in blue and closing the door. This door can-
not be destroyed.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow you with weap-
ons of destruction.
You have command of two squads, each
with a sergeant and four marines. You may
arm them as you choose.
Web of Flames - Mission Background: A squad of terminators sweeping the
area behind the advance squads made an alarming discovery. A nest of hibernating
genestealers had been completely bypassed, and were now on the wrong side of the
advancing perimeter! If these nests could not be purged, the Dark Angels would find them
selves attacked from in front and behind.
184


Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must destroy the Genestealer Magus, and at least
one terminator must escape by entering the corridor
marked in blue and closing the door.
Force:
The Emperor has dictated your squads weaponry.
Two squads will be sufficient; each has a sergeant with
Powerfist and storm bolter, three marines with Powerfists
and storm bolters, and one marine with heavy flamer
and Powerfist.
To the Emperor - Mission Background: Even as the warriors of the Deathwing
closed in upon the inner sanctums of the xenos, doubt was spreading amongst their numbers. Despite
many heroic deeds and untold numbers of enemy dead, the mission had so far yielded little in the way of
definitive reward. However, a chance discovery offered the opportunity to silence these doubts - a
genestealer magus, a psychic hybrid of human and alien, was found still in cryogenic hibernation.
Destroying this abomination would be a grievous blow to the enemy, and the reward that was desperately
needed to ensure the future of the mission.
Genestealer Magus:
The Genestealer Magus is in an active hibernation chamber.
Starting on turn one, and every other turn afterwards (so turn 3,
5, 7 etc), the chamber floods with cryogenic gasses. This gas
works in the same way as if a heavy flamer had attacked
each square on the board. However, the destruction of the
Magus will result in damage to the coolant systems, and
subsequently the gas will cease. The Magus can be killed
just as if he were a normal genestealer.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must recover at least
one object from the hulk.
You do not know the
location of what you are
searching for.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow
you with weapons of
destruction.
You have command of one
squad; a sergeant and four
marines. You may arm them
as you choose. At least one
model must have a
Powerfist, as only a
terminator armed with a
Powerfist may carry an
object.
Search for Evil - Mission Background: The mission to discover the fate of Litho-
nius was given one last chance. However, Commander Xovius determined that the relentless
drive into the den of the xenos must now be tempered with knowledge. Halting the advance,
he ordered squads of terminators to search various key locations of the hulk for any documents,
blueprints, data slates; anything that could guide the terminators in their search.
185


Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must flame both
board sections marked in
red.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow
you with weapons of
destruction.
You have command of
one squad; a sergeant
and four marines. You may
arm them as you choose.
At least one marine must
be armed with a heavy
flamer.
Seed of the Enemy - Mission Background: At last, the breakthrough Xovius
had hoped for arrived. Using data discovered during their last ditch search, the Dark Angels
were able to pin-point the primary brood nest of the genestealers. If two control sub-sections
could be destroyed with flame, then the spread of the xenos through out the ship could be
halted. This would be a crippling blow to the genestealers, and would greatly enhance the
likelyhood of discovering the fate of Lithonius.
Terminator Information
Objectives:
You must place demolition
charges at each of the ten
squares identified by an X.
Force:
Let the tech-priests bestow
you with weapons of de-
struction.
You have command of two
squads, each consisting of a
sergeant and four marines.
You may arm them as you
choose. At least one marine
must be armed with a
Powerfist.
Tech Support - Mission Background:
The righteous fury of the heavy flamers carried by the Deathwing had not been
enough. The xenos endured. Time was now of the essence. If the hibernating
broods were to fully awaken, the Dark Angels would be overwhelmed. Calling on
the advice of his techmarines, Xovius formulated a desperate plan. A series of
demolition charges would be placed at specific points through the system of
brood nests, the entire area could be destroyed, sealing the fate of the
genestealers.
Demolition charges:
Only terminators armed with
Powerfists may carry and
activate charges. It costs 1AP
to pick up or place a charge.
Terminators with powerfists
begin the mission carrying their
charges, otherwise the charges
are left at the feet of the
terminator.

RETURN TO KALIDUS
by Dean Bass and Chris Colston
Misson one: A Quest For Power
Mission Two: Honour Bound
Mission Three: Terminus
The Campaign
This Space Hulk campaign was originally presented in White Dwarf 158.
Each of the three missions uses a squad of Space Wolf Guard Terminators.
A Wolf Guard Terminator Squad consists of
Wolf Guard Sergeant with Storm Bolter and Power Sword.
Wolf Guard with Assault Cannon and Chain Fist.
Wolf Guard with Heavy Flamer and Power Glove.
Wolf Guard with Storm Bolter and Chain Fist.
Wolf Guard with Storm Bolter and Power Glove.
A Wolf Guard has a close assault factor of +1.
A Wolf Guard Sergeant has a close assault factor of +2
The Wolf Guard are orbiting the planet Kalidus, a planet that they and the Dark Angels once cleansed of
Chaos during the Horus Heresy. Leman Russ left a Great Company standard as a perpetual reminder to the
people of Kalidus of their debt to the Emperor and to the Space Wolves.
Now the planet has been overrun by the `stealers. It must be virus bombed, the planetary defence network is
still active, and the Space Wolves wish to recover the standard.
Campaign Victory
If all three missions are completed by the Wolf Guard then the campaign is a major victory.
If only two terminals are deactivated and the battle standard is recovered then the campaign is considered a
draw.
If all members of the squad are killed before at least two of the terminals are deactivated, even though you
have recovered the battle standard then the campaign is lost.

RETURN TO KALIDUS CAMPAIGN
A Quest For Power
The Space Wolves know that they have just one chance of finding out where
the controls for the planetary defences are and the current whereabouts of the
standard. The Wolves decide to teleport into the computer complex under the
Governor's Palace.
Objectives
The Space Wolf player is attempting to access the computer terminal to
determine the location of the battle standard and the planetary defence systems'
control computer.
Forces
The Space Wolf player has a standard Wolf Guard Squad.
The Genestealer player starts with 2 blips and receives 2 blips as reinforcements per turn. These are taken
from the standard Space Hulk blip set.
Deployment
The Wolf Guard start in the marked room on the bottom right of the map.
The Genestealers starting force is 1 blip per entry point.
The reinforcements enter play as 1 blip per entry point.
Special Rules
To access the information from the computer, the room must be cleared of all Genestealers. A member of the
Wolf Guard must stand in the square directly in front of the terminal and spend 4 AP or CP without
interruption.
Ending The Mission
The mission ends when the information has been accessed. At this point all the remaining members of the
Wolf Guard will be teleported back to the ship. If all the Wolf Guard are killed the mission and the campaign
will have failed.

RETURN TO KALIDUS CAMPAIGN
Honour Bound
The information in the computer reveals that the banner has been moved
to the barracks of the Imperial Guard. However it's exact resting place
was not known, so the second Wolf Guard squad would have to search a
number of rooms to find it.
Objectives
The Wolf Guard player is attempting to locate the standard and teleport
away with it.
Forces
The Space Wolf player has a standard Wolf Guard Squad.
The Genestealer player starts with 6 blips and receives 2 blips as reinforcements per turn. These are taken
from the standard Space Hulk blip set.
Deployment
The Wolf Guard start in the marked corridor on the bottom right of the map.
The Genestealers starting force is 1 blip per room.
The reinforcements enter play as 1 blip per entry point.
Special Rules
To find the standard, a room (marked P on the map) must be cleared of Genestealers and then 1 AP or 1 CP
used to scan the room. A D6 roll of 6 is required to find the standard in the first room searched. This is then
reduced to a 5 or a 6 in the second room searched, and a 4 or more in the third. If the standard is not found in
the third room it will automatically be in the fourth. Once the standard is located the Wolf Guard who finds it
must spend another 2 AP or CP to pick it up before the squad is teleported away.
Ending The Mission
The mission ends when the battle standard has been retrieved. At this point all the remaining members of the
Wolf Guard will be teleported back to the ship.
If all the Wolf Guard are killed the mission is a failure, and the honour of the Great Company will be tainted.

Terminus
The Space Wolves have found out where the controls for the planetary
defences are.
The Wolves must deactivate the three terminals to clear the way for the
virus bombs.
Objectives
The Space Wolf player is attempting to deactivate all three planetary
defence terminals.
Forces
The Space Wolf player has a standard Wolf Guard Squad.
The Genestealer player starts with 1 blip and receives 2 blips as reinforcements per turn. These are taken from
the standard Space Hulk blip set.

The Genestealers starting force may be placed at any entry point.
The reinforcements must enter play at different entry points.
Special Rules
he doors to the terminals are locked and the access codes are unknown, so the doors must either be attacked (a
6 is needed to break through with a power fist or a power sword, bonuses don't count) or destroyed by a Chain
Fist. The doors must NOT be shot.
To deactivate a terminal, a Wolf Guard must be facing it and must spend 2 AP or CP without interruption.
Ending The Mission
The mission ends when all three terminals have been deactivated. At this point all the remaining members of
the Wolf Guard will be teleported back to the ship.

Defilement of Honor
193
DEFILEilIENT OF HONOUR
The following three missions can be played either
as a se es of sepamte games, or linked together to
form the Defilement of Horolrr campaign. In the
campaign, you play through each mission and
record the result, adjusting the next mission with
the rules given in its background. In this way, the
missions build up to forn an overall story.
If you are playrnE Defilement of Honour as a
campaign, then the Space Marines must win the
linal mission to win the campaign. In addition, if
the Space Marines also win the fi$t two missions
they will gain high honour in the histories of the
Blood Angels Chapter The Genestealers will win
the campaign if they wil1 the third mission, but
they can greatly increase their chances ofdoing so
if they win either of the first two.
AIR DUCTS
A network of air ducts runs
just
below ceiling
level in the coridors and rooms. Some ot' the air
ducts are large enough to allow Genesteale$ to
move through. Air ducts are shown on the mlsston
maps, and are fteated likc corridors with the
tbllowing additional rulesl
GENESTEALERS
.
Genestealers or Blips may enter an air duct from
the square directly in front of the air duct at a cost
of 2 APs.
.
Genestealers or Blips may move from the end of
an air duct into the square directly in front of the
air duct at a cost of I AP
.
With the exception of entering and leaving,
Genestealers and Blips move through air ducts
exactly as if they we.e corridors.
.
When convefiing a Blip in an air duct, you may
only place Genestealer models in the air duct.
Models which cannot be placed in the air duct
itself are lost. The opposite is also true: Blips in a
conidor or room cannot convefi into an air duct.
The diagram to rhe right shows the pemitted
enffy/exit square for an air duct.
SPACE MARINES
.
The air ducts are too
high to allow Space
Marines entry and
although the Space
Marines can see the
opening of the air duct
they have no line of sight
into the air dlrcts
themselves. This means
that the Space Marines
cannot fire at Genestealers
inside air ducts, and Blips
are not tbrced to convert.
.
The only exception to this rule is
that a heavy flamer may be fired at the ti$t square
of the air duct. This may only be done by a Space
Marine directly in Jine with the opening and with
no models in between. Either one o. two flame
counters may be placed on the first square of the
ail duct. If there is a Blip on the targeted square,
convert the Blip first and then roll for the
Genestealer on the flamed square.
HINT: A Space Marine on overwatch guarding an
afu duct will have to target the exit square (the
square directly in front ofthe air duct). Then when
a Genestealer is moved from the air duct into the
e\ i l )quare t he Space Mrri ne cdn f i re ar i l .
CLOSE ASSAULT FROM
AIR DUCTS
Ifa Terminator is standing in an exit square it may
be attacked in close assault by a Genestealer
inside the air duct. The resulting combat cannot be
drawn, if the result would be a draw the
Genest eal er wi ns and t he Space Mari ne i s
removed. In any case, the winning model is left in
the exit square. Note that a Terminator on
overwatch in an exit square does not fire at a
Genestealer attacking fiom an air duct as he has
no waming belbre the Genestealer strikesl

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has two squads. Squad A consists of a sergeant armed with storm bolter and power sword,
one Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer and powerfist, one Space Marine armed with storm bolter and chainfist, and two Space
Marines armed with storm bolters and power fists. Squad B consists of a sergeant armed with thunder hammer and storm shield, one
Space Marine armed with an assault cannon and powerfist, and three Space Marines armed with storm bolters and power fists. The
Space Marine player deploys the squads on the starting squares shown on the map.

Genestealers: The genestealer player begins with one blip counter in each of the four airducts, and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn that may enter from any entry point. If two entry areas are sealed this is reduced to one reinforcement blip per turn.

SPECIAL RULES
Airducts:

- Genestealers and blips may enter an airduct from the square directly in front of the airduct at the cost of 2 AP.
- Genestealers and blips may move from the end of an airduct into the square directly in front of the airduct at the cost of 1 AP.
- With the exception of entering and leaving, Genestealers and blips move through airduct exactly as if they were corridors.
- When converting blips in an airduct, you may only place Genestealer models in the airduct. Models which cannot be placed in the
airduct itself are lost. The opposite is also true: Blips in a corridor or room cannot convert into an airduct.
- Marines cannot enter airducts. Although the Marines can see the opening of the airduct they have no LOS into the airducts
themselves. Genestealers inside airducts cannot be targeted and blips cannot be forced to convert.
- Heavy flamers may be fired at the first square of an airduct affecting the entire section as normal. Blips inside airduct being flamed
convert before the effect of the heavy flamer is resolved.
- Close assault from an airduct cannot be drawn. If the result is a draw, the Genestealer wins. In any case the winning model is placed
in the corridor/room, ie any Genestealer winning a close assault will leave the airduct.

Bulkheads: In this mission bulkheads may be used to permanently block off Genestealer entry points. Treat them as doors until closed.
Once closed they cannot be opened. Use an appropriate marker to represent the bulkhead or place an end-marker to show the
entrypoint is being blocked.

VICTORY
The Space Marines win by sealing all three entry points shown in the map.
Any other result is a genestealer victory. If you are playing this mission as part of a campaign, record the result (success/failure).

Space Marine armed with an assault cannon and powerfist, and three Space Marines armed with storm bolters and power fists. The
Space Marine player deploys the squads on the starting squares shown on the map.

Genestealers: The genestealer player begins with one blip counter in each of the three entry areas, and receives one reinforcement
blip per turn that may enter from any entry point. If all three entry areas are sealed reinforcements are stopped.
If playing this mission as part of a campaign and the Space Marines lost Mission 1, more Genestealers can break through. The
Genestealer player receives an extra reinforcement blip per turn until two of the entry areas have been sealed.

SPECIAL RULES
Airducts:

- Genestealers and blips may enter an airduct from the square directly in front of the airduct at the cost of 2 AP.
- Genestealers and blips may move from the end of an airduct into the square directly in front of the airduct at the cost of 1 AP.
- With the exception of entering and leaving, Genestealers and blips move through airduct exactly as if they were corridors.
- When converting blips in an airduct, you may only place Genestealer models in the airduct. Models which cannot be placed in the

Once closed they cannot be opened. Use an appropriate marker to represent the bulkhead or place an end-marker to show the
entrypoint is being blocked.

VICTORY
The Space Marines wins by deactivating the engines. To do so a Space Marine model must be standing in the square marked X,
facing the console/wall. For each AP/CP spent, roll a D6, on a roll of 6 the drives have been shut down and the mission is successfully
completed.
Any other result is a genestealer victory. If you are playing this mission as part of a campaign, record the result (success/failure).

in the corridor/room, ie any Genestealer winning a close assault will leave the airduct.


VICTORY
The Space Marines wins by taking control of the nav com. To do so a Space Marine model must be standing in the square marked X,
facing the console/wall and spend 8 consecutive APs/CPs without interuption. Start over if the Marine is killed or takes any other
actions. Once the computer is under their control the Space Marines win.
Any other result is a genestealer victory.

White Dwarf 203:
The Fate of the Sword of Halcyon
201
TM
The Space Marine vessel The Sword of Halcyon left the orbit of the planet Falkhan and pre-
pared for the journey through the warp back to Earth. A Chaos uprising had taken place on
Falkhan and some of the Space Marine squads posted there had fallen to temptation. Their
commander, seduced by the power of Chaos, had been taken prisoner and was to be
brought back for interrogation.
Upon entering the warp the Sword of Halcyon jolted suddenly and came to a halt. Instantly
the ships alarms rang and all aboard prepared for the worst. Reports from the navigator
came back that the ship had encountered a warp storm. The vessel rocked and swung
around in a five mile wide arc, then disappeared momentarily. The ships scanners went
wild, indicating huge metallic structures as big as cities, and then nothing. Massive rifts in
the warp tide hurtled the Sword of Halcyon through pockets in the flux. A giant space hulk
appeared as the storm came to its climax, a mile long streak of purple lightning hitting the
ship and causing all aboard to brace themselves as it crashed into the massive hulk.
Churning through layers of twisted metal, the whole side of the ship caved in. Finally, explo-
sions briefly fused the ship with the growing hulk, before the Sword of Halcyon was violently
thrown out of the warp, slowly spinning into nowhere. The alarms stopped, the fires died
out, and the survivors slowly recovered. Then everything fell silent.
From the front section of the ship, which had plunged through the hull of the space hulk,
functioning scanners showed a steady build up of new, alien life signs. The moans of the
injured and dying, audible throughout the ship, suddenly changed pitch. They now became
a cacophony of terror and pain, mingled with the chatter of bolter fire and the bestial shrieks
of an enemy all dreaded, but none dared to name: Genestealers.
The survivors in the rear section of the vessel had no option but to retreat to the escape
capsules. They were cut off from their companions by walls of buckled metal, and The
Sword of Halcyon was becoming increasingly unstable.
Within an hour and a half of its jettison, the escape pods were picked up by the Imperial
battlebarge Mayan. During this time, The Sword of Halcyon had drifted in space, flames
periodically guttering across its surface bearing testimony to the destruction within.
Sergeant Lexon, a survivor from The Sword of Halcyon held an emergency conference with
the Blood Angels on board the Mayan. It was swiftly decided that for the honour of the chap-
ter they must attempt to recapture the ship from the Genestealers. The Blood Angels
Terminators prepared for battle, and with grim resolution the order was given to launch
boarding torpedos.

SPACE MARINES
FORCES: 2 squads of Space Marines Squad Lexon and Squad Jacta (a squad consists
of 1 Sergeant, 1 Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and 3 Space Marines armed with
storm bolters). The two squads are deployed on the yellow corridors.
BRIEFING: The Space Marines win if they can collect the weaponry from the rooms marked
on the map before the end of turn 14. It takes 1 AP to pick up a pile of weapons.
The Space Marines move first in this mission.
GENESTEALERS
FORCES: The Genestealer player receives no blips at the start of the game, and then 1
reinforcement blip per turn. Each blip may enter via any of the entry points.
BRIEFING: The Genestealers win if they kill all the Space Marines, or if they prevent the
Terminators from collecting the weapons before the end of turn 14.

No sooner had Squad Lexon been dispatched to the boarding torpedo than the launch
sequence began.
Hovering silently in the vacuum, three miles starboard of the dark, brooding architecture of
the vast ship, the Mayan launched the boarding vessel. For brief seconds the tiny projectile
traced a graceful, spiralling trajectory between the two vessels before puncturing the skin of
the Sword of Halcyon. The scream of rending metal and the whine of snapping cables were
swallowed by black space, and but for a flare of sparks the ship retained its quiet appear-
ance of calm.
Inside the boarding torpedo, despite being securely strapped in place, the Space Marines
were shaken to their very cores as the pod exploded through several floors of buckled metal
platforms and leaking conduits. Finally the vessel ground to a screeching halt, its bulk filling
an antechamber of the armoury section of the Sword of Halcyon. External sensors flickered
into life on board the docking torpedo, and grainy low light images flashed up on the ships
consoles to dance across the Blood Angels visors.
Behind their impassive helmets, despite their violent arrival, the Terminators softly chanted
the Litanies of Hatred. The enemy they were about to encounter was an enemy of life itself,
and it was aboard a ship belonging to their beloved chapter. A reckoning was called for.
Inside the helmets the tinny voice of the servitor on board the Mayan came through, area
secure he said, Squad Lexon, prepare to disembark.
BACKGROUND
The armoury must be taken swiftly. The quicker the assault the more chance there is of not
only retrieving any weaponry that may have remained aboard, but also of making the ves-
sel safe for further boarding actions.

SPACE MARINES
FORCES: 2 squads of Space Marines Squad Lionus and Squad Vetora (a squad consists
of 1 Sergeant, 1 Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and 3 Space Marines armed with
storm bolters). One Space Marine from each squad carries vital components to repair the
computer console. Nominate the Space Marine before the mission begins.
BRIEFING: The Space Marine with the components must spend 2 APs repairing the com-
puter console. Place the computer console counter on the square marked with an X.
The Space Marines move first in this mission.
GENESTEALERS
FORCES: At the start of the game the Genestealer player receives one blip placed in each
of the shaded rooms. During the game, the Genestealer player receives one reinforcement
blip per turn. These blips enter via any of the entry areas.
BRIEFING: The Genestealers win if they stop the Space Marines repairing the computer
console before the end of turn 12.
Tech-Priests on board the Mayan surveyed the banks of monitors before them, translating
the garbled stream of data into relevant information to relay to the Terminators on board The
Sword of Halcyon. They were co-ordinating a damage assessment on the vessels bridge in
order to provide intelligence to the Space Marine squads currently en route. Initial scans did
not look promising. Plasma explosions from a breach in the reactors venting system had
torn through this section of the ship before bulkhead doors had slammed to, automatically
isolating the leak. The damage was extensive, and as yet it was unclear just how severe.
In the wrecked halls outside the bridge area, halon lamps cut through the gloom. From their
secure areas on either side of the labyrinth of corridors leading to the bridge, the
Terminators stood motionless, waiting for the order to strike. Within the otherwise expres-
sionless facades of the squads, the pale light of vengeance glittered in their eyes.
BACKGROUND
The Space Marines must battle their way through to the bridge, and once there obtain a full
damage assessment from the bridge computer.
However, reports from the Mayan confirm that the console is down so it must be repaired
before it is possible to proceed with the report. Portable back up systems have been sup-
plied for this purpose.

SPACE MARINES
FORCES: 2 squads of Space Marines Squad Laora and Squad Veila (a squad consists of
1 Sergeant, 1 Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and 3 Space Marines armed with
storm bolters). The two squads are deployed in the indicated rooms.
BRIEFING: The Space Marine player wins by closing off all the entry areas with bulkheads.
A bulkhead is sealed by spending 1 AP whilst standing in an adjacent square.
The Space Marines move first in this mission.
GENESTEALERS
FORCES: The Genestealer player receives no blips at the start of the game and then 2 rein-
forcement blips per turn. If only 1 entry area is open, the Genestealer player only receives
one reinforcement per turn.
BRIEFING: The Genestealers win if they kill all the Space Marines, or they prevent the
Space Marines from closing all the bulkheads before turn 12.
Towering metallic structures dominated this region of the ship, their lengthening shadows
casting a black pall to conceal the horrors lurking amidst their nooks and crannies.
Dampness and vapours hung heavily in the air, forming a slick sheen on the plasteel shell
of the engine room.
As the Terminators drew ever closer to their destination, piercing shrieks echoed through the
dank air of the ships belly. The aliens were massing to strike in force. Pausing occasional-
ly to fix their eyes on their scanners, the Space Marines watched the blips that slowly cir-
cled their position, the number growing with each revolution.
Sergeant Veilas face split into a grin of feral satisfaction. Let the abominations come, he
thought. The lengthy corridors here were ideally suited to long range combat and they would
pile the halls high with disgusting Genestealer corpses before they were done.
Above them, in the dark, cold alien eyes reckoned their movements with unfathomable pur-
pose. The Genestealers were driven by a will which transcended the mere survival of the
individual, a trait which made them a dangerously unpredictable foe. For what human mind
could ever hope to accurately foretell the machinations of such a deviant intellect as the
Genestealers.
BACKGROUND
It is imperative that The Sword of Halcyon not be allowed to continue drifting. In order to
achieve this the Space Marines must manually seal off each of the four blastproof bulkheads
leading to each of the four reactor cores. This will allow the Space Marines to safely shut
down the reactor manually. This is the only way to initiate the reactor shutdown process
whilst the bridge controls are down.

SPACE MARINES
FORCES: 2 squads of Space Marines Squad Tullar and Squad Fultun (a squad consists
of 1 Sergeant, 1 Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and 3 Space Marines armed with
storm bolters).
BRIEFING: The Space Marine player must kill all the dormant Genestealers. The Space
Marines may shoot or flame a blip. A hit will kill all the Genestealers in that blip. If a blip sur-
vives an attack it will become available for the Genestealer player to use.
The Space Marines move first in this mission.
GENESTEALERS
FORCES: The Genestealer player receives 20 blips at the start of the game, these lie dor-
mant in the shaded areas. Each turn the Genestealer player may roll to awaken a blip on a
roll of 6, even if the Space Marines can see the blip.
BRIEFING: The Genestealers win if they kill all the Space Marines, or if there are still any
dormant blips left at the end of turn 10.
Brilliant white light flooded the corridor, throwing stark contrasts over what was previously
soft gloom. Photo-sensitive filters in the Terminators armour instantly compensated for the
sudden change, preventing their occupants from being blinded. The Space Marines, drilled
to almost machine-like perfection, adopted combat positions in the blink of an eye, thinking
that an enemy was upon them. They relaxed as they realised the truth of the matter. They
had crossed a threshold which had caused the computer to activate the ships life support
systems.
Scanners indicated the presence of a considerable number of life signs in the area, although
no survivors were thought to have remained from the initial impact. The scanners flicked out
piercing beams of light as they triangulated the positions of the readings. No movement
came as yet.
Exhaled air hissed and condensed, curling upwards from outlets on the Blood Angels hel-
mets. The Space Marines were nearing the cryogenic chambers and the displays within
their visors showed a sharp decline in external temperature. The light in the corridors was
becoming stronger and clearer, almost ephemeral. Every step taken by the Terminators res-
onated through the hollow metal floors, threatening to rouse their prey from frozen slumber.
The lifesigns were those of dormant Genestealers interred within the stasis cylinders,
racked upon one another like repulsive larvae awaiting metamorphosis.
BACKGROUND
The Genestealers have infiltrated the cryogenic chambers and some of them have already
entered stasis. They must not be allowed to survive since they could jeopardise further sal-
vage attempts on this vessel. There is a limited time frame in which this must be achieved,
then the Terminators must clear the area.

SPACE MARINES
FORCES: 2 squads of Space Marines Squad Sparta and Squad Marius (a squad consists
of 1 Sergeant, 1 Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer, and 3 Space Marines armed with
storm bolters). The Space Marines set up in the shaded corridors.
BRIEFING: The Space Marines with heavy flamers must flame the three shaded X rooms.
The Space Marines move first in this mission.
GENESTEALERS
FORCES: The Genestealer player receives 3 blips at the start of the game, placed in the
shaded rooms, and then two reinforcement blips per turn.
BRIEFING: The Genestealers win either by killing the Space Marines with heavy flamers, or
by preventing them from cleansing the rooms by the end of turn 12.
Perhaps more so than for any of the other squads involved in this operation, the cold fire of
hatred burned in the armour-clad breasts of the Terminators of squads Marius and Sparta.
Each mind narrowed to a bitter point focused on revenge. The displays on their scanners
scrolled more rapidly as they closed on their destination, their wrath lending haste to the
Space Marines step.
The Genestealers had dared to defile the sanctity of the crafts sanctum with their intolera-
ble presence. In terms of honour this mission was of the greatest import, and vengeance
must be absolute. The sanctum was pure, and that the aliens had defiled it was an insult to
the whole Chapter. In their desire for bloodshed, the normally implacable Terminators were
overtaken by a rage which overthrew the usual considerations of tactics and strategy.
Between all of them there existed only the desire to kill, and to cleanse with righteous fire
any part of the sanctum tarnished by the hateful enemy.
Charging heedlessly into the fray, a hail of bolter fire marked the start of the carnage.
BACKGROUND
The sanctum is a place of spiritual retreat for the Space Marines on board such crafts as
The Sword of Halcyon. A place where they might contemplate their faith in the Emperor and
dedicate their prayers to victory in battle.
Some of the Genestealers had made a nest in the inner part of the sanctum, rendering it
forever tainted with their vile, inhuman, psychic spoor. Only one avenue of action was open
to the Space Marines in this bleakest of affairs. Their beloved sanctum was infected with an
alien presence and as such their obligation, however onerous, was to burn out the contam-
ination for good.

The mi ssi ons we' ve previ ousl y publ i shed i n Space Hul k,
Deathwing and Genestealer were all stand_alone games You
didn't have to play them in any particular order, and success
or failwe in one game didn't affect your chmces in the next
In Lhis book, most of the missions are grouped together into
carnpaigns. A campaign is a linled series of missions where
ihe outcome of each mission affects your ovcrall chances of
success. In some cases you just have to win a certain numbet
of games to achieve ovcrall victory. In others, the forces you
get in the later missions change according to how well you did
at the start of the carnpaign.
Campai gns put even more pressure on t he Space Mari ne
player. A bad mistake in one mission can forfeit the whole
campai gn. And i f you' re not caref ul about keepi ng your
modcls alive you might find yourself going into the final
mission with alrnost no forces! Every Space Marine's life is
precious aad it's oftcn not enough simply to win the mission
-
you'vc gotlo rnale it through wirh most of your force intact
PLAYING THE CAMPAIGNS
Of course, even though a campaign is 4 or 6 missions long,
you don't have to play the wholc thing from end to end. lt's
certainly possible to organise an epic session of Space Hulk
that lasts a whole day and gives you f}le chance to complete an
enlire campaign. On the other hand, you'rc far more likely lo
play lhe campaiSn over several days or weeks. This is fine
-
just
remember to keep a notc of who won which missions and,
if necessary, which models survivcd.
Like most Space Hulk games, these campaigns are desiSned to
be fairly hard on the Space Marines. If you find that you've
lost a vital mission which prevenls you from continuinS, you
can always play it again with your opponcnt's agrcement.
Once you've finished a campaign, swap sides and play it ttre
other way round. Keep in mind any particularly successful
tactics youl opponent used
-
but remember, your opponent
will be on thc look out for them.
SEPARATE MISSIONS
You' 11 get t he mosa f un out of pl ayi ng t he campai gns as a
seri es of l i nked mi ssi ons but you can al so pl ay t hcm as
scparate one-off
8anes.
After you've played the campaiSn,
rcplay the missions you found the mos! challenging to tly out
diffcrent tactics. Thc campaigns all give guidelines on playinS
the missions separately.
Once you've got the hang of a particular mission, it's a good
idea to play ir using differenr forces. If thete's a particular
force you want !o try out, you can simply agree which models
you're using with your opponent. C-)r you can use the bidding
system ftom Dcathwing to choose sidcs and forces
-
ifyou've
won t he mi ssi on wi t h t he l i st ed f orce, sec how f ew Space
Marines you need to get through.
A t hi rd way t o pi ck a new f orce i s t o use $c l i sl of Space
Marine points values for the forces in each mission
-
this is in
the section of new rules for Traitor Space Marines. It's quite
simple to pick a force up to thc listed value and play with that.

As well as redesigning thc Space MaJine forces, feel ftee to
replay the missions with different Genestealer forces. If your
opponent has come up with some pafiicularly cunning tactics,
try addinS extra starting ard reinforcement Blips

Ctn the other hand, if your opponenfs having a bit of trouble
with the mission,
you can rcduce the number of Blips to
Sive
him a bttcr chance. Droprping, say, one BIip every other tum
will help to give the Space Marines an extra edge.
NEW RULES
As well as the four campqiSns, this book contains a varicty of
new rulcs and single miisions. The rules for Traitor Space
Mari nes and Space Mari nes i n power at mout ori gi nal l y
appeared in White Dwarf. We've rcvised them here in the
lighr of games we've played since they were publishcd so it's
worth rereadinS them even if you've used them bcfore.
For example, Terminators with grenadc hamesses used to be
able to thow blind grenades at no poinLs cost. We found that
t hi s sl owed games down t oo much and prevcnt ed a l ot of
shoot i ng, so we' ve gi ven t hi s act i on a cost of 2 APs. Now
you've got to be far more careful about laying down blind or
you won' t have enouSh APs l o compl el e your mi ssi on.
There's four single missions in the new rules scctions. Two of
these follow on from the original six missions in the Space
Hulk game. The othcr two provide one mission each fot Space
Marines in power armou and Traitor Space Marines.
BOARD SECTIONS AND COUNTERS
At the back of Lhis book you'll find rhree sheets of thin card.
You' )l probabl y want t o gl ue t hese t o t hi cker card bef ore
culting out the counters and board sections. The card fiom a
cereal packct is fine for rhe counlers. For the board sections
we'd use sometlrng slighrly fiicket (or a couple of layers of
thin caid) to
8et
lhem about the same thickness as lhe board
from Space Hulk itself.
There are t wo new board sect i ons t hat arc used as l i f t s i n
several of the missions. Fecl free to incorporate ihesc board
sections into any missions you design for youself. You don't
have to use them as lifts

The other two sheets include a variety of ammo comters and

ofhow many shots or grenades you've

These rules allow you to play games of Space Hulk with
Space Marhes on both sides. On one side arc Space Madnes
loyal to the Emperor, on the other the Traitor Marines vrho
turned to Chaos under the leadership of Watmaster Holus
during the Imperium's darkest how: the Horus Heresy.
At the end of the Heresy, the Traitor l,egions were banished !o
the Eye of Terror, an area of the galaxy satutated with walp
energy. The worlds at the cote of the Eye of Terror are ruld
over by Daernon hinces and Greater Daemons on behalf of
the Chaos Pow.rs and are called the Daemon \Yorlds.
Many of the Space Maines of dre l,egions that tumed from
the Emperor to Horus have survived the ten thousand years
since the Heresy, mutated teribly by their long contact with
Chaos.
Some, like Tzeentch's Thousand Sons and the Plague Marines
of Nurgle's Death Guard, have settled on
Planets.

Some of the Traitor chapters never settled on a

TRAITOR SPACE MARINES
The Traitor Termin*or Force List allows you to play alnost
all of the previously published Space Hulk Terminator vs
Genestealer missions as Irnperial vs Traitor games instead.
The exception to dds is the solo nission, Cloud Rwmer's Last
Stand.
PLAYING PUBLISHED MISSIONS
Before determining who controls the Imperial Space Madnes
and who contols lhe Traiors, decide which mission will be
played. Then flip a coin. The player who wins the toss chooses
which side he plays.
The Imperial player uses the force listed for the mission. The
Traitor player purchases a force of equal points value to the
I mperi al pl ayer' s. The new f orce i s used i nst ead of t he
Genestealer force listed in the mission, not in addition to it!
The strength of the listed Imperial force is determined by
calculating how may points it would cost to design the force.
For example, the standard squad ftom tlxe Suicide Mission in
Space Hulk is cornposed of 3 Space Marines with storm bolter
and power glove (1 point each), 1 Space Marine with heavy
flamer (5 points) and 1 Sergeadt with storm bolter and power
glove (2 points), for a total of l0 points. For convenience,
we've summarised the poinrs values for all the published
missiors in the Force Points Table.

Group your Space Marines into squads consisting of
number of models corresponding to their
associated number, as given on dre Ttaitor Logiorl
For example, if a players' fqlce is part of a

instance. he would form a squad of8 and a squad of 6.
The foltowing !estdctions apply to designing
squads:
a) one Sergeant or Captain must be included in

b) a force may only have one Caprain
c) a squad may only have one Lib,rarian.

TRAITOR SPACE MARINES
Since the aftermath of the Horus Helesy, the vanquished
forces of Chaos lmown as the Traito! ligions have managed
to survive the wrath of the Emperor by taking refuge deep
within the Eye of Terro!. Upon occasion, these formidable
foes of the Imperium leave the relative safety of the Eye,
making deep stabs into Imperial territory, foraging for the
means to satisfy their thirst for conquest and revenge.
The AdeDtus Astartes is aware of the threat the Traitor
l,eSions pose and several Imperial ships diligently parol the
reaches of space sulounding the refuge of drese most deadly
of enemies. Nothing inspires more righteous anger in the
Imperial Space Marines than the Traitors who long ago sided
with Horus.
After an initial ship-to-ship fight, if the enemy craft is still
intact, the victors often send their Terminators to board it.
This involves a faii amormt of risk, however, as the invadeF
are usually met by their opposite numben and the attackers
may soon become the defenders.
STARTING PLAY
The following scenarios are designed to be used with the
Deat hwi ng Mi ssi on Generat or t o si mul at e t he si t uat i on
described above. To play any one of them, follow the siepby-
step procedure described below. If you want to play all the
scenarios as a campaign, also see the rules in rhe following
section of the book.
1. Flip a coin. The wimer chooses which side he controls.
The loser chooses whether he's the attacker or defender.
2. Generate the board layout and set up the board as
outlined in Deadrwing.
3. Roll on the Scenario Table to dtermine which scenario
to play. (If you've already played some of the scenarios,
feel free to resfict your choice to new ones.)
4. Each player designs a force costing 20 points.
5. Each player chooses up to two enry areas
-
similar to
Genestealer entry areas
-
via which his models can enter
play. The defender chooses first.
6. Play the game using the guidelines for special rules,
objectives and victory conditions given in the Traitor
Terminator Force List section.

TRAITOR SPACE MARINES
Special Rules.
Both players can secue entry areas. The defender can use
ambush cormters.
The defender must set up geotile 10 if it has ndt ben placed.
The cryogenic tar*s counter on geotile l0 is not used in ftis
mission. Instead, place the ship's log counier on the cente
square of the dead-end room. All rules for the log frorn The
Ship's l,og in Destiwing spply.
The self-destruct mechanism is located within the lectern
upon whi ch t he shi p' s l og rest s. The book must f i l st be
removed before the device can be activated. This is so tha! if
the ship is to be destroye.d, the log can easily be rescued. It
costs 2 APs to remove the ship's log and a further 4 APs to
activate the self-destruct mechanism,
After the device is triggered, the countdown to self-
desftuction does not become irreversible for l0 tums,. Up
until that point, the device may be shut off at a cost of 4 APs.
Yictory
The defender wins if he manages to irreversibly set off the
ship's self-destruct mechanisnis.'The attacker wils if he
manages to prevent this from happening either by killing all
the defenders before the mechanism is set or by tuming it off
within 10 tums of it being set.
ABANDON SHIP
Immediately the self-destruct mechanism is triggered, the
anacker's ship disengages itself frorn the defender's ship in an
effort to put eriough space between ihem before the explosion
occurs. More than likely, it will do this. Any Space Madnes
left on board the doomed ship, however, are on their own.
At each of the two entry areas fardrest away from the self-
desruct mechanism are a bank of lifeboats. Any Space Marine
who manages to exit :he board at either of these two points
within 20 tums will be able to board a boat and
jettison
it from
the ship in time lo sunive the explosion.
Any Space Marine still on board after 20 tums dies in the
ship's fiery blast.
Objective
Both playels arc trying to get more Space Marines off the ship
than their opponent.
Special Ruls
Both players can secure enry areas. The defender can use
arnbush countels.
The defelder must set up geotile 10 if it has not already been
placed. The exit arcas to the lifeboats are the two entry areas
farthest away ftom the arrow on geotile 10. If two or more
entry areas are equally distant fiom the arrow, randomly
determine which ones to use.
The attacker's ently areas are the two nea.rest the arrow on
geotile 10. If two or more entry areas are equally fa.r away, the
defender chooses which areas the corridors will be artached to.
If he wants, the defender can deploy up to 12 models in the
empty spaces on geotile 10. Any other ofhis forces may only
be bnought onto the board via the two entry areas closest to ihe
arrow on rhe geotile the attacker has not alieady chosen as his
own.If two eligible ently areas are equally close to the arow,
the attacker decides which ones can be used by the defender.
Victory
After 20 turns, add up the points value of the Space Marines
who escaped for each side. The player who managed to get the
grealest points total of Space Marines off the board wins. geotile l0 and escape with the ship's log.

TRA]TOR SPACE MARINES
This cairpaign links together all of the preceding scenarios to
simulat a complete boarding action ftorn the initial invasion
of the defender's ship to the final resolution.
THE FORCES
Each player designs a master force roster costing up to 150
points in total. A player's roste! tepresents the forces at his
disposal for the campaign.
Before a scenario, each player slects a number of his squads
to take Dart in the mission. The value of the fielded force
carmot exceed 40 poins. A squad may not be selected if any
of its members took part in the last scenario played. The
exception to this iule is Abandon Ship (see below).
After each scenario, each player updates his master force
rcster, noting any casualties his forces have suffered. Unless
othelwise, state4 ammunition is auomatically replenished at
the end of each scenario (if you're using the Deathwing
Librarian rules, psi points are also aulomatically replenished).
Between scenarios, the player is allowed to break up and
reallocate his squads as he likes. No Traimr squad can have
more Space Marines in it than is Power's associated number
(ie 8 for Khorne, 6 for Slaanesh, 7 for Nurgle and 9 for
Tzeertch). Similaly, no Imperial squad can have more than 5
Space Marines in it. A squad can never be composed of more
thaa half heavy weapons (ie autocannon, assault cannon,
conversion beamef,s, heavy flamers and missile launchers).
Breaking the Enemy Forc
Because a squad can'r rake part in two missions in a row,.it's
possible to defeat the enemy without killing all his Space
Marines.
A force is broken if the player has no models allowed to play
either because they've all been killed or because they all took
part in the last scenario. Once one or other side is b'roken, the
campaign ends.
THE SCENARIOS
The campaign always begins with Boarding Action
described below. After one player has successfully
the other's ship, the attacker decides rphich scenario is o
played next ihoughout the campaign
(exceptions to this
outlined below). He must choose ftom Destroy the Engi
Take the Bridge, Capture iie Arsenal or Search and
(ftom Deathwing).
If at any time the engines, bridge or arsenal are all
destroyed or under the control of the attacker, the anacker
only choose to play Search and Destroy until either one side
the other is b,rokeq thuspnding the game.
Replaying Missions
lf the arbcker wins Destroy the Engiires, Tale the Bridge
Capture the Arsenal wi0lout the target being destroyed,
defender can later replay any of these m$srons rn an
to regain control,
At any point between games, the defender can override
attacker's choice of the next scenado and choose to replay
eligible scenario (ie one the defender lost in which the
remains undestroyed).
He can also choose at any time to play Self
instead of the attacker's selected scenario. If Self
is successfully completed bry the defender, play moves
Abandon Ship, afier which the campaign ls over.
If fte attacker loses Destroy the Engines, Take dre Bridge
Capture fte fusenal, he can also choose replay it provided
target wasn't destoyed, If the target is destloyed, the
camot be reDlaved-
Board Layout for Replays
Any time a scenario is replayed, the same board layout is
Scenarios do not have to be replayed immediately
-
games car be played in the interim. However, it is up to
loser of the rnission to lecord the board layout before it
broken uo so that it can be reconsFucted later if he wishes
attempt the scenado again. This is easily done by mapping
placement and orientation of the geotiles originally used
generate the board.
If dre defende! chooss to replay a scenario, each side
where the other nomally would. This is because the
is now in contsol of the area and the defender is the one
to capnfe ir. Otherwir the scenario is played as w tten.
If the attacker chooses to replay a scenado, deployment is

Contract Revoked
New Units: Traitor Terminators
228
TRAITOR SPACE MARINES
Contract Revoked is set in a topsecret Inquisition Libraium
situated in a small self-sufficient space station hidden well
within an asteroid belt circling a remote unpopulated star. Its
anci ent l i brary cont ai ns some of t he I nqui si t i oo' s most
valuable and danSerous vdlumes on the workings of Chaos.
The information they contain is so powerful that only one
copy of each volume exists.
Over the millermia, the hand-written volumes have been
regularly replaced by new copies meticulously &awn by the
Librarium's scribes. Decades ago one such scribe, Brcther
Jacques, twned toward the seductive power of Chaos and
began !o study the ancient works for theit own sake. He was
soon di scovered by hi s superi ors but managed t o avoi d
capture by hastily making a pact with a Daemon of Nwgle, the
Great Unclean One, Maggotgurgle Pukeslime.
Jacques pledged ttre Daemon his soul in exchange for escape
and subsequeflt power. A written copy of the contracr ibelf
was hidden away in the Librarium, encoded dep within one
of the lhousands of books. Jacques' plan worked. Once away,
he fled into the Eye of Terror and the eager arms of his
overlord, joining the ranks of the Death Guard Trailor l,egion
ofNurgle.
The game begirs with Jacques' retum to fte Lib,rarium where
his fall from honour began. hrkeslime, by way of a sinister
joke,
has given the ex-scribe an opportunity to win back the
right to his soul. All he has to do is recover the book within
which the original contract lies, desfioy the Librarium's other
volumes and escape the outpost alive. To aid Jacques in his
mission, the Great Unclear One has govided him with two
squads of Traitor Terminators.
Wi t h such a powerf ul f orce at hi s di sposal , Jacques i s
expecting to encounter litde or no lesistance. After all, the few
aged scribes that were residing there when he left could
provide no match for fifteen Death Cuard Terminators. But
unknown to the Traitor, the Inquisition had consulted the
Irnperial Tarot and predicted that he would retum.
A special honour guard composed of the best Terminators
from each of four different Space Marine chapters has been
posted at the station. Pukeslimq ofcourse, hrew this when he
challenged the ex scdbe to ftee himself from his obligation.
Brother Jacques didn't discover the Irnperial Space Marines'
presence until he and his Terminalors arrived at the Liblarium.
He now faces a desperate battle against some of the finest
warriors of the Imperium. And if he fails, he forfeits all.
OBJECTTVES
The terms of Jacques' deal witi Pukeslime are very specific.
To revoke his contract, he must find the conEact, bum thc
library and then escape. To locate the book containing the
contract, Jacques himself must search the Librarium. Once
he's found the book, the Librarium's other volumes must be
thoroughly burned. Of course, this means nothing to him
uiless he manages to get a*ay.
The Imperial forces are trying to stop Brother Jacques by
killing him and saving the Librarium.

Eureka: a medium-sized planet in the Owa system containing
an amazi ngl y-ri ch ast eroi d bel t . A pl anet t hat has been
contarinated with a heavy Genestealer presence.
When the Cenestealers took over the system, the Imperial
Guardsmen garrisoned there were overcome within hours.
They did however raise ihe alarm.
The first Imperial forces to reach the planet were twenty
Legiones Astartes of the Ultramarines, summoned by the
signals form the last uncontaminated base.
Space Marine Commander Denzark studied the defenders'
lnal banle repors. By his side stood Friedrich Chanat, senior
Adept us Mechani cus and commander of t he base. The
holographic display showed an overview of the Owa system.
The huge gas giant at the cenue glowed with a faint li8ht, a
stark contrast to the hundreds of bright red pinpicks that
dorrcd the rest of the display. Each of the dots represented a
mine or rehnery in Genestealer hands, Alone among them was
a single green speck
-
the basc where they were now sttnding.
With so few men at his command, Denzark was at a loss ats to
what he coul d do. He l ooked cl osel y at t he hol ographi c
display for the dozenth time, hopinS for some inspiration.
'"This
vessel?" Denzark poincd to the scarlet line edging its
way inlo geostationary orbit high above Eureka's surface.
"That's the tug, si. It isn't a ship as such. Simply a fusion
engine and crew quaftels anached to the ore which has been
welded into one massive block. It's over ?00 yards wide and 2
miles long and cootains thousands of millions of ons."
"Interesting. What do you imagine it would do io that?"
For a moment Chanat was confused. Then realisation dawned
-
Denzark was pointing to the warrn grey orb that represented
the planet. He meant, what would it do to Eueka!
Commander Denzark immediately launched an audacious
attack on the tu8. By capturing the tu8, he could redirect the
massive chunk of ore to impact onto Eureka's surface with the
force of a hundred thousand fusion bombs. The resulting
destabilisation of the planet's orbit, the atmospheric pollutiorl
and the rapid onset of the greenhouse effect would destroy the
Cenestealer population totally.
However, the tug had itself been captured by Genestealers.
They had captured the main contol areas of the tug and wete
massed in the sepaate module containing the ctew quafiels.
OBJECTIVES
The t arget room represent s t he t ug' s bri dge. The Space
Marines are trying to reach the bridge to
jettison the crew
quarters (not shown on the map). Once these have gone, the
Space Marines simply have to hold dre b'ridge and mop up any
last Genestealers. The Genestealers are trying to defeat the
Space Marines to save their forces on the planct below.

NEW MSSIONS, WEAPONS AND RULES
These rules cover the weapons used by Space Marines in
powe! armour and Trai t or Termi nat ors. Some of t hese
weapons have aLeady been covered in Genestealer
-
Ote rules
are repeated herc for corvenience.
The rolls needed to kill a model or destroy a feature for all
these weapons ald grenade t)!es are given on the Weapons
Srmrmaiy Table elsewhere in the book.
BOLTER
Bolters are the standard issue Space Marine weapon. They 6re
boltJ or shells with explosive or armour-piercing tips. Bolters
work in a sirnilar mamer to the larger stom bolters used by
Terminato6 but only roll one dice instead of two.
They are capable of sustained fire but their maximum bonus is
lower
-
they get +1 to hit for the first shot and 12 for all
subsequent shos against the same target. For ex:unple, against
Gencstealers and Hybrids, dle rolls neded to kill are:
Sustained Fire Genestesler Hvbrid
First shot 6 4
Second shot 5 3
Third afld suticequent shors
'
4 2
OYerwatch
Boltcrs in overwatch roll one dice per shot. They have a much
lower rate of fire than storm bolters so they don't
jarn
in
overwatch. The only way the fircr can lose overwatch dwing
the enemy tum is if he is attacked in close combat, or moves
or tums by spending command points.
FLAMER
The ordinary flamer caried by Space Marines in power
armour is a small, light weapofl. It is fred using eiiher one ot
both hands and works in much the same way as the heavr"
flamer carried by Terminalors.
Almost all the rules for heavy flamers aF,Ply: the flamer has 6
shots, a range of 12 squares, each hit affects an entie boatd
section and blocks line ofsight. Use the heavy flamer marked
you've already got from Space Hulk for these weapons.
The rnain difference is that the basic flamer is a less powerful
weapon and its rolls to kill are reduced. Flamer hits against
Genesteale$, for example, only kill on a loll of 4 or morc
rather than on a roll of 2 or more for heavy flamers.
Space Marines arned with flamers usually carry one leload
for thei weapons. Reloading coss 4 APs. The Space Marhc
ges a new stack of flamer markers taking his total back up l,o
5. If any marke$ wele remaining from the previous load the;-

the flaner has a maximum of 6 shots per load.
Flamer Hits on Space Marines
You' l l not i ce t hat on t he new Weapons SummaryTabl e'
figures are given for flamers and heavy flamers killing Space
Ma nes and Teminators. This is because in Space Marine !5
Space Marine
8ames,
these weapons will inevitably be tumod
on the enemy Space Marines. The rules fol fighting Spacc
Marines vs Space Marines are covered elsewhere in this book.
The rules for surviving flamer hirs are the same for Spac.
Mari nes as f or Genest eal ers. That i s t o say t hat a Space
Marine who survives a flarner hit can move fteely aJound thal
board section or leave it arrd move to an unaffected board
section. As usual, Space Marines ouside the affected scclion
can't move into it.
Note that a Space Marine camot f e a flamer ol heavy flamr
into a section that contains another model from his own side.
No Space Matine would deliberately sacrifice the life of a
brother Marine by flaming him. This applies to games againsl
Cenestealen as well as io games against other Space Marines.
AUTOCANNON
The aut ocannon i s a l arge-cal i bre gun whi ch f i t es hi gh-
velocity mass-reactive explosive arnmunition. This gives fte
weapon a hefty recoil and the firer must brace himself firmi-v
to take the shock,
Within the confines of a space hulk the autocannon has an
unlimited range but is particularly effective at closer ranges
where it can lay down an impenetrable hail of fire making usc
of its larSe anununition supply.
Because of the massive recoil a model hring an autocannon
must be halted. Move and file actions are not possible. It cosls
1 AP to fire an autocannon.
Sustained fire bonuses apply to autocannon. This mcans that it
is possible to have an automatic hit. For example, against a
Terminator at close range, the fourth shot will need a 1 or
better !o kill
-
this means the Terminator is hit aulomatically.

CONVERSION BEAMER
The conversion bearn projector, also known as the bearner,
works by converting rnatter into pure energy. The beam builds
up slowly, increasing in intensity as it extends funher from the
projector. At the beam's focus point the matter-energy
conversion becomes so powerful that it causes a violent
explosion.
This makes beanets are incredibly effective against
rnassively-armoured
targets such as Terminators. They

The luer must remain stationary otherwise the energy field
becomes unfocused and the effects are negligible. Firers often
wear boots adapted with special claws to provide a stable
amng
Posluon.
Because of the required stability, it costs 2 Aps to file a
conversion beam projector and the firer cannot perform a
move and firc action. Slstained fire bonuses do not apply as
it's impossible to maintain an accurate bealn focuj over
several shots. The beamer's range and ammunition are
lmlimited.
MISSILE LAUNCHER
These are bu\ shoulder-moulted weapons that fire small
missiles armed wiLh powerful warheads. Typically a missile
Iauncher is loaded with a combination of armour-piercins
crack missiles and area effect plasma missiles, either;fwhici
can be selected before firing. Crack missiles are armed with a
double-charged hollow-case wathead designed to rupture
aamour. Plasma missiles detonate in a sDlit-second burst of
flesh-boiling super-heated plasma.
It costs 2 APs to fire a missile launcher. Because of the
weapon's bulh move and fue actions are impossible.
All missile launchen are equipped wirh an unlimited supply
of crack and pl asma rni ssi l es. The pl ayer whose model i s

Different g?es of missile can be lred by Ore iame model in
the same turn. As each missile is a sepatate shot, missile
launchers receive no sustained firc bonus.
Crack Missiles
Crack missiles are used against single targets
- just

appropriate roll to kill or destroy the target.
Plasma Missiles

LINE OF SIGHT & AREA EFFECTS
The presence of an area effect rnarker on a board section
-
ee
a flamer or grenade marker
-
means Lhar line of sighr in oi
through that secrion is blocked, making it impossible for
models on either side of the section io shoot each orher.
It's not, however, completely blocked. Line of sight can be
traced to the edges of the affecled section so that they can still
be fired on by other alea effect weapons (because they only
need to be able to target one square of the section). When a
second area effect weapon is fired into an affected sectiorl the
rolls needed to kill are the same as normal, For example. a
flamer is lred into a section and several models survive, then
a ftag grenade is tlrown into the section
-
the rolls to kill for
the frag gienade are exactly the same as if the flamer market
wasn't there.
As line of sight can be tsaced to the edge of a section, it means
that models staflding at the edge can both fire out and be fired
at
-
provided, of course, thete aren't any other blocking
squares between firer and target (including
any other edge
squares).
Within an affected section, line of sight isn't completely
blocked. No matier how many section effect marke.s thete are
on a sectior\ adjacent models can still shoot at each other and
deliver close assault attacks.
Section effects last until the marker is removed at the end of
t he next enemy t urn. Because of t hi s, i t ' s i mport ant t o
remember which markers were placed by which side so they
can be removed at the correct time.

NEW MISSIONS, WEAPONS AND RULES
One of the advantages of power armour over Terminato!
armour is that it is less restrictive and enables the Space
Marines to easily throw grenades without the need of a
gienade hamess.
These rules cover five t)?es of grenade, each with a different
effect: crack, frag, plasma and blind grenades 6nd melta-
bombs.
AREAS OF EFFECT
Some grenades affect only a single model or featule and ate
called targt effect grenades. Others affe.t all the nodels and
features on a whole troard section, like a flamer, and are called
section effect grenades.
Target Effect Grenades
Talgat effect grenades hit only one square, The Space Marine
tkowing the grenade must tte able to Eace a clear line of siSht
!o the target.
Section Effct Grenads
A section effect grenade affects every model or featwe in the
targeted section,
just
like a flarner.
THROWING GRENADES
A grenade can be tlrown by a stationary Space Marine in
power armour for a cost of 2 APs. A Space Marine can't throw
a grenade and move as part of the same actiofl. The hre arc of
a grenade is the same as for any other weapon.
Targt EITct Grenades
Target effect grenades have a maximum ranSe of 3 squares
and a minimum range of 2 squares.
The Space Maline can't throw the grenade at an adjacent
square because he'd be too clor to the blast.
Section Effect Grnads
The range of a section effect grenade is measured by board
sections, not squares. A Space Marine can [row the grenade
inlo any adacent board section provided he has line of sight to
at least one square ifl the section.
The Space Marine can't throw ihe grenade into a board
section more than one section away, nor can he droP it into the
board seclion he's standing on.
This rule gives secrion effect grenades a variable range From
one end of a long corridor, the grenade could have a range of 5
squares, for exdnple
-
or it could be iust
one square if the
Space Marine is iight Ilext to the target section. If you're
playing dre Cenestealers you have to keep an eye on this
-
it's
easy to get caught out when you think your models are safe!
Grenades Falling Through Pitfalls
A target effect grenade that is thrown onto a pitfall square falls
though on a roll of 1-2, either exploding on the level below
or, if there isn't a lower level, exploding harmlessly in the
ship's irmads.
Section effect

Crack is a target effect grenade. It is a sticky shaped
that is used aSainst armoued targets.
Against a static target like a door the grenade is so
that a kill is more or less assured. Against a smaller
target there is a chance that the glenade won't hit
makins it far less effective.
Crack grenades do not block line of sight or movernent

FRAG GRENADES
Frag grenades are smal l hi gh expl osi ve sect i on
grenades. They have an anti-personnel effect afld won'l

or all of the living creanrres in the section.
Once a frag
Irenade
has been thrown, a frag marker should
placed on the target board section to show that line of
tluoush that section is blocked. This is due to the smoke
debris filling dle section in the aftermath of the explosion-

it has no effect

As usual for a blocked section, line of sight can be drawa

squares) so other section effects or additional frag grenad
can be thrown into the section. The frag marker is removed

MELTA-BOMBS
Melta-bombs are target effect grenades that superheat the area
and rnelt down anything in contact wirh it. Melta-bombs are
devastating weapons, giving an automatic kill against targets
such as Genestealers and doors.
Melta-bombs are largel than other grenades and arrurunition
is resrdcted ro 8 grenades.
They are generally in shorter
supply than the other grenade types and are only carried by
Sergeants.
Wien a_ melta-bomb is thrown, the Space Marine player
selects the target square and rcmoves anything in ir Apit'fall

represents a mass of hot gases and molten metals and

Mission OneBeachhead
Mission Two: Emperor's Grace
Mission Three: Specimen
Covert Operations
There are times when Space Marines are not at hand and the situation is desperate. There are times when
Space Marines would be wrong for the mission, this is often a political matter. At times like these the
Imperial Guard steps in, for good or for worse.
When entering a Space Hulk the Guard take only their very best troops, because they know that Lasguns and
the Emperors faith will not suffice! The following rules are for using Imperial Guard, their weapons and
special rules with Space Hulk.
New Rules
Most of the normal rules for Space Hulk still apply, accept where noted below.
Unlike Terminators Guardsmen have five action points, this represents the added bonus of movement when
you have very little armour. Guardsmen can also side-step, like Genestealers, into a square to their left or
right. However, unlike Genestealers, they cannot turn 90 degrees for free (see action points table).
Because Imperial Guard are no way as well equipped or trained as Terminators, they receive a -1 penalty on
all close assaults from Genestealers. The only exception to this are Captains (who can also parry) and Storm
Troopers, the elite of the Guard.
Each squad contains a com-link and its generally a good idea to keep him alive, because if hes the last alive
at the beginning of his turn he can call for backup. On a roll of a 5 or 6 on a D6 remove the com-link model
and place the exact same squad you started with in the entry area. This new squad has the same mission as the
last. Also note that the board is left as it is, so doors which have been destroyed stay like that and so on (its at
times like these you feel sorry for a Genestealer player).
253
http://spacehulk.barsoom.cc/mirrors/shc/ImperialGuard.htm
2 of 3 1/1/2008 8:59 PM
Imperial Guard have also developed a technique for close quarter fighting, basically they shoot and hide. This
allows you to fire and then move. Its just like the normal command of move and fire and all the penalties for
sustained fire shooting apply, its just the other way around!
The Squad
There are two sorts of Imperial Guard squad available for your command. Storm Troopers and a normal
squad. You can fight any Space Hulk mission with these squads. Note though that for two squad missions in
the original boxed set booklet it would be advisable to take Storm Troopers and with one squad missions a
normal squad.
Normal Squad
Consists of:
One Captain, armed with bolter, powerfist and sword.
Six Guardsmen, armed with Lasguns and knifes.
One Com-link trooper, armed with Lasgun and knife.
One Sergeant or Lieutenant, armed with bolter and knife.
One Guardsman armed with either a Flamer, Plasma Gun or a Melta Gun
Storm Trooper Squad
Consists of:
One Commander (Captain), armed with Shotgun and sword.
Six Troopers, armed with Hot Shot Lasguns and knifes.
One Com-link trooper, armed with Hot Shot Lasgun and knife.
One Sergeant, armed with Hot Shot pistol and knife.
One special weapon Trooper, armed with knife and either Flamer, Plasma Gun or a Melta Gun
Note: For the loss of one Lasgun armed Guardsman or Hot Shot Lasgun armed Trooper, you may take
another model armed with a special weapon (not Captain or Sergeant). This means your squad will be
reduced to a strength of nine models.
New Weapons
Bolters/Hot Shot Lasguns/Hot Shot Pistols/Shotguns
Exactly the same rules as a storm bolter but you roll one less shooting dice.
Lasgun
254
http://spacehulk.barsoom.cc/mirrors/shc/ImperialGuard.htm
3 of 3 1/1/2008 8:59 PM
Lasguns are similar to Bolters. The only thing is though, they are not as powerful. So sustained fire is not
allowed. A perfect hit is needed to kill Genestealers and doors.
Note: Although the Lasgun is not that good, it does work well with the Guards rule of shooting then moving.
This enables them to be quite mobile (or chicken)!
Plasma Gun
This Gun makes Storm Bolters look like water pistols! It has three sustained fire dice and can sustained fire
even when moving. However it does need to recharge and one action point must be missed before it can fire
again.
Melta Gun
Because this gun is quite cumbersome, any model using it only has 4 A.Ps (yes even Catachan Jungle fighters
J ) instead of five. It has two shooting dice and can sustained fire when moving.
Note: That both the Plasma Gun and Melta Gun can sustained fire from their first shot. They do not have to
wait until their second action point.
Using these rules you can play a normal game of Space Hulk (in a mission where flaming a room, or two, is
needed refill canisters for flamers are allowed).
The Command Rule
Imperial Guard squads are not Terminators (they are cannon fodder), and so do not have the communication
abilities of Tactical Dreadnought Armour. To represent this, as long as your Captain or Com-link are alive
you may take command points. The Captain or Com-link shouts additional orders to the other squad
members. If both of these men die you lose your command points permanently. With Storm Troopers they
each have cameras mounted on their back packs and so do not suffer from this, they may take command
points to the last man.
Tactics
With the Imperial Guard in Space Hulk you have to consider your objective (because sooner or later those
excellent Lasguns on overwatch arent going to stop those waves of Genestealers) and achieve it quickly!
Also try not to use command points with Plasma Guns, because it eats them up wholesale. The rest is the joy
of using Imperial Guard in Space Hulk J.

SPACE HULK
Mission OneBeachhead
Mission Two: Emperor's Grace
Mission Three: Specimen
Genesis
Hive Fleet Kracken rages across the east of the Galaxy. Every where forces are hard pressed to repel the
invasions. Amongst all this confusion a Space Hulk slips through the warp. Name, Mullocko. Route, Terra.
Initial Investigations by the Mentor Legion reported of a new breed of Genestealer, a different appearance and
mental composure. Where as the usual Purestrain attacked in wave patterns, these infiltrated deep behind
enemy lines and attacked at the weakest point.
The mentor Legion attempted the destruction of the Hulk by destroying the plasma reactor which gives it
power. The whole Terminator company attacked. Vicious fighting took place, whole squads were wiped out
by surprise attacks. With Genestealer ripping through walls and ambushes coming from behind, the
Terminators were in trouble. Soon the company was reduced to squads fighting on their own deep within the
hulk, desperately trying to destroy the reactor. Interference was too high to teleport. Flamers ran out and
assault cannons jammed, they fought back to back and fell one by one. The Legions Terminators all died with
over a thousand to one odds.
The Legion mustered its battle companies for a suicidal attack, it could not let the suits be lost forever in that
spawn ship. Then disaster happened. The Techmarines reported that the Mullockos warp engines were
powering up! A last ditch defense laser barrage merely crippled one of the five engines, and the Mullocko
slipped out of the Legions grasp.
It reappeared three years later, with its deadly cargo, and only twenty days from Earth. Terras defense fleet
came to meet it, they easily had enough firepower to destroy the Hulk. However word came from Earth to
save the Hulk until a specimen had been captured of this new breed reported by the Mentor Legion. The
message had come from the High Lords of Terra themselves.
Time was against the Imperium, with all the Space Marine chapters too far away to intervene in time. The
only option left was to send in the Imperial Guard, their mission: capture a Genestealer and secure a
bridgehead to retrieve the Terminator suits.
These new Genestealers could be an advance guard of another hive fleet, the Imperium would need to prepare
for this. It seemed that the lowly Guard had an important mission, one which could decide the lives of
millions.

COVERT OPERATIONS: IMPERIAL GUARD IN
SPACE HULK
Mission One: Beachhead
Onboard the Majestic Captain Rowney considered his options, should
he attempt an alien capture straight away or go for a more tactical
approach?
As he mused a message appeared on the bridge screen, it was the
primary scan of the Hulk Mullocko. The results showed the majority
of Genestealers in, or around the ships old fusion reactor. The scan
also reveled a high level of leakage which, if exposed to, would be
lethal to his men. The best specimens were nearest the Primarch and
would have to be flushed out from that dangerous area.
The only way to do this would be to make the reactor have a
controlled leak, destroying part of the brood and forcing the rest out of
hiding. This controlled destruction would have to be done internally,
as an orbital nuke would be too destructive. Fortunately, Rowney,
knew just the man for the job.
BACKGROUND
Sergeant Apone and his men must advance to the control room and
secure the room from Genestealer attacks by closing the bulkheads
(see main rules for closing bulkheads). By doing this he will have full
access to the reactor. This beachhead will also enable the Guard to
recapture the Terminator suits lost by the Mentor Legion.

Mission Two: Emperor's Grace
While the attack on the control room happened, several dozen
Genestealer attacked the Imperial Guard landing site on the Hulk.
This action destroyed several Thunderhawk Gunships and most of
Captain Rowneys equipment was damaged. The close quarter
fighting around the Thunderhawks was a brutal and short affair,
favoring the Genestealers. Captain Rowney and his bodyguard were
overrun even as Sergeant Apone completed his mission.
Commander Hicks of the Storm Troopers valiantly fought through
and destroyed the Genestealer incursion. But instead of finding the
shattered body of Rowney, he found nothing at all.
Captain Rowney and his bodyguard had been taken away for
implantation. He was still alive, although it was only a matter of
time before he died. What mattered to Hicks was how he went.
Pride was at stake now as Hicks led his squad into unknown
territory. The Captain was going out in style!
BACKGROUND
Commander Hicks must lead his Storm Troopers to where Captain
Rowney is being held and administer the Emperors grace on him
and his bodyguard. Then, Hicks and any remaining Storm Troopers
must exit via a teleporter.

Mission Three: Specimen
The time had come. Commander Hicks watched the brave volunteers board
the Thunderhawk. He tried not to think of what would happen to them, but
theyd go down with honor at least.
The special Genestealer breed was proving difficult to catch by conventional
methods. It seemed only live bait would suffice. It was Hicks last resort to do
this and that last resort had come. He had posed the question to his remaining
men in the company, he wanted some volunteers. One man stepped forward. A
hard bitten veteran of Colonel Shaefers Penal squad. He said he would
complete the mission - for a price! Amnesty would be granted, should he and
his men live.
BACKGROUND
Sergeant Bull and his penal squad must capture a Genestealer, alive. To do this
they must advance to a cargo storage bay and use themselves as bait to lure a
Genestealer into the bay. Then they must close all the bulkheads before the
Genestealer kills them all. Any left inside when the doors close will die. The
Majestic can then remove the cargo from the exterior of the Mullocko for safe
passage to Terra.

There are 5 Chaos Idols situated in very small temples around the ship. The only way that they can be
destroyed is by a Vortex Grenade (or a psychic Vortex Marker). Models are not allowed to enter the Chaos
Idol squares, as there is not enough room due to the altars and other fixed ornamental statues.
The Harlequins need to make sure that they have enough Vortex Grenades to use against the 5 Idols. Each
Idol is automatically destroyed if the square is hit by a Vortex Grenade. When an Idol is destroyed, remove
the single board section from the map. The Chaos Idol continually burns in the purifying warp fires that the
Vortex Grenade ignites.
When an Idol is destroyed, a portion of the Chaos power is sucked out from the ship. The Idol not only
collapses in on itself, but it also drags the soul of the nearest Chaos model instantly into the burning fires
and consumes it immediately. The Chaos model can not defend itself under any circumstances from being
destroyed by a fallen Idol (Not even an Aura). Any Chaos model can be affected, including Dreadnoughts
and Librarians. If there are two or more equally close Chaos models to a destroyed Idol, then the Harlequin
player chooses which model is destroyed. It is entirely removed from the game the instant that the Idol
takes the hit from the Vortex Grenade.
The Harlequins need to carefully plan their attack, as they must keep alive their models that are armed with
the Vortex Grenades. The Harlequin are (hopelessly ?) outnumbered and can not afford any mistakes at all.
Chaos players need to be aware of leaving powerful models near Idols. A surprise Harlequin attack may aim
for the Idol and kill the powerful model as a secondary effect.
Victory
The Harlequins win if they destroy all five Chaos Idols. The spirit of each Trouper rejoices in their victory,
whether or not each spirit survived. As the last Idol is destroyed, the Chaos Gods are so enraged that they
will automatically, and instantly kill any remaining Chaos Models on the board. Their souls will know new
tortures each morning of their eternal lives spent in the most barren wastelands of the warp.
If the Harlequins do not manage to destroy one Idol, then their spirits are hounded with eternal torment at
their dismal failure.
The Chaos Forces win if they kill all of the Harlequins, and there is at least one surviving Chaos Idol. They
will still be punished by their Gods if any of their Idols were destroyed. If no Idols were destroyed, then the
Chaos Gods reward each Marine with fresh Eldar souls to feast upon.


Marines Missions
Rapid Penetration Part 1 - Expunge Campaign
Scouting a deserted outpost, the Marines were not sure what they would find, or encounter. As often
happens, it was only by good fortune that a detachment of the chapter were in the nearby vicintity when
the local planetary defence forces were alerted by locals about "Nightmare creatures". Suspecting that
something more powerful than pirates may be behind the unrest, Sergeant Lenja was ordered to enter the
compound for an initial sweep. With very little other information, the Marines were cautious, but not afraid.
269
47
Tense minutes passed until their sensoriums burst to life with multiple readings, almost impossibly fast and
converging on their position. They were in the middle of an approaching wave of death by claws and fangs.
Lenja's transmittor offered the scratchy signal of hope for his squad. Push forward, fight through the throng
and enter the next sector. CAT units and X-Ray scanners confirmed it to be enemy free, for now...
Lenja's squad rallied, and fought forward. Knowing that their brothers had smashed into the next sector
ahead from the planetary surface, they would join with them. Rapidly penetrate, or stay and die where they
stood.
Objectives
The Marines are caught in the entry sector, but can not retreat as they have been cut off from behind. They
need to move forward into the next sector, at all costs.
The Genestealer player is attempting to isolate Squad Lenja and prevent as few of them as possible from
entering the next sector.
Marine Forces
The Marine player has 12 Points to spend on his Force. He may ONLY purchase POWER ARMOUR Marines.
He must have only one Sergeant (Lenja) who is leading the initial assault.
Genestealer Forces
The Genestealer player uses the Standard Blip set. He may not choose Ambush Blips.
Deployment
The Marines set up by squads in the marked blue corridor sections.
The Genestealer player has 2 starting blips which must be placed at different areas. He receives 1
reinforcement blip per turn. The Marines can not secure Genestealer entry areas in this mission.
The Marines move first.
Victory
The Marine player needs to exit 4 Marines from the board to win the mission.
If the Marine player only exits 2 or 3 Marines, then the mission is drawn.
The Genestealer player wins the mission if he manages to prevent all but 1 Marine escaping.
Campaign Notes
If you are playing the campaign as the series of linked missions then you should note the consequences of
the above victory conditions.
If the mission was drawn, then the Marine player suffers a casualty from his Forces for the next mission. He
must purchase his force for the next mission, then decide which Marine is removed. This reflects the lack of
support that Sergeant J ulinon received from Squad Lenja's approaching move.
If the Genestealers won the Rapid Penetration mission, then the Marines have already lost the campaign.
Sergeant J ulinon's squad was over-run in their attempt to hold the breach alone without any support from
Squad Lenja. All entrances to the compound are sealed and guarded until more Marines arrive with heavy
bombing equipment.
270
48



Perimeter Closure Part 2 - Expunge Campaign
Catching the enemy from behind on the ground level of the compound, Sergeant J ulinon's squad needed to
close of their sector. Squad Lenja were now chapter memories, but their valiant service would not be
forgotten. Even in their deaths they managed to seal off part of J ulinon's perimeter task. J ulinon thanked
the devotion that his brother's had, as their deaths afforded him a tactical advantage.
Yet there were more Genestealers, a roused fighting vanguard that were mustering along the perimeter
lines. Squad J ulinon pressed forward to close off the dangerous ground level perimeter, allowing more
Marines free access to bolster the lines from behind.
Objectives
The Marines have taken advantage of a lull in the Genestealer awareness as they blasted into the
compound bypassing the main entry area. They need to seal off the Genestealer entry areas in this sector
to slow their advance from the lower levels.
The Genestealer player must try to kill all of the Marines before they are able to seal off the sector. Failure
to do so will enable the Marines to muster a greater force against them for a lower level assault.
Marine Forces
The Marine player has 13 Points to spend on his Force. He may ONLY purchase POWER ARMOUR Marines.
He must have only one Sergeant (J ulinon) who is in charge of the mission.
Genestealer Forces
The Genestealer player uses the Standard Blip set. He may not choose Ambush Blips.
Deployment
The Marines set up by squads in the marked blue corridor sections.
The Genestealer player has 2 starting blips. He receives 1 reinforcement blip per turn.
The Marines move first.
Victory
The Marine player needs to seal off the 4 Genestealer Entry Areas to win the mission.
If the Marine player only seals 3 Genestealer Entry Areas, then the mission is drawn.
The Genestealer player wins if the Marines fail to seal at least 3 Genestealer Entry Areas.
Campaign Notes
271
49
If you are playing the campaign as the series of linked missions then you should note the consequences of
the above victory conditions.
If the mission was drawn, then the Marine player suffers a casualty from his forces for the next mission. He
must purchase his force for the next mission, then decide which Marine is removed.
If the Genestealers won the Perimeter Closure mission, then the Marines have already lost the campaign.
Captain Nashemrarod withdraws all forces and decides to heavy bomb the compound down to a fine
powder, losing all chance of a thorough interrogation of the site.

Prolonged Stalking Part 3 - Expunge Campaign
With their initial forays into the compund proving to be successful, Captain Nashemrarod decided to take
advantage of their ascendancy on the ground level. He ordered Sergeants Brayden, Tuscarny and Forst to
drop themselves into the lower level of the compound. Expecting to meet further resistance, Nashemrarod
needed to gauge the strength of the Genestealer force that remained. If their numbers were weak he could
allow his Marines the luxury of time to rout the remaining beasts. IF their numbers were weak...
Squads Brayden and Tuscarny seperated from Squad Forst as they descended into the darkened
compound. Only the emergency lights were operating on the damp, stone walls. No doubt all power had
been cut by the Genestealers as they came under attack.
Sergeant Brayden took point with his squad as Tuscarny followed behind. They were pushing ahead leaving
Sergeant Forst's squad covering their rear a sector behind. The two Sergeants were never comfortable with
silence, which is why both men smiled as their sensoriums spoke to them so gleefully. Genestealers
surrounding them, from everywhere. Time to stalk and to hold their ground.
Objectives
After the Marines fired their first few rounds, they could tell that the Genestealer force attacking them was
only limited. There were no fanatical wave like attacks being thrust at them. Knowing this, the Marines are
desperate to hold the sector and clear it of all Genestealers. They must stay alive at all costs to keep their
forward thrust moving.
The Genestealer player must try to kill all of the Marines and claim the sector as their own. With a limited
force, they need to be careful, and to set their traps wisely.
Marine Forces
The Marine player has 24 Points to spend on his Force. He may ONLY purchase POWER ARMOUR Marines.
He must have only two Sergeants (Brayden and Tuscarny) who are both in charge of the mission.
Genestealer Forces
272
50
The Genestealer player uses the Standard Blip set; however he only has a total of 30 blips to complete the
mission. He may use Ambush Blips if he chooses, in which case he can take one per turn in place of a
normal blip. Each Ambush Blip is only counted as one of the 30 blips if it is revealed to be a Genestealer,
otherwise it is disregarded. The Genestealers have had more than enough time to hide themselves in the
sector, so the Marines need to be very wary.
Deployment
The Marines set up by squads in the two marked blue rooms. Place Squad Brayden in the room with four
exits.
The Genestealer player has 2 starting blips. He receives 2 reinforcement blips per turn. Remember that he
can take Ambush Blips, and they only count to the 30 blip total if they are revealed to be a Genestealer.
The Marines are allowed to seal off any Genestealer Entry Areas if they wish. If any blips are lurking at a
sealed Genestealer Entry Area, then it is lost and it still counts as one of the Genestealer's 30 blips.
The Marines move first.
Victory
The last remaining model alive wins the mission.
Remember that the Genestealer player may also use Ambush Blips, so even in the unlikely event that the
Marines manage to seal off all of the Genestealer Entry Areas, the Genestealer player can still continue on
using 1 Ambush Blip per turn.
If there are no models left alive on the board at all, then the Genestealers win.
Campaign Notes
If the Genestealers won the mission, then the Marines have lost the campaign. Squad Forst is withdrawn,
and the compound is abandonded in readiness for the waiting bombardment.

274
Ar k of Dust
for those who don't have a Space Wolf Terminator Squad
Just replace the rules sections from the original mission description with these if you're playing Space Hulk straight out of
the box.

Mission I - Breakthrough

Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The space marine player has two squads, Both Blood Angels Squads. The first squad consists of a sergeant armed with a
Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon and three armed with Storm Bolters and Power
Fists. The Blood Angels squad consists of a sergeant armed with a Power Sword and Storm Bolter, a marine armed with
a power fist and heavy flamer, 2 armed with Storm Bolters and Power Fists and one armed with a Storm Bolter and Chain
Fist.

Special Rules:
Malfunctioning Doors: All doors in this area of the hulk are prone to malfunction. Upon attempting to open any door, either
player must roll a D6. On a 4+ the door will open as normal. On a roll of 3 or less, the door jams and must be destroyed in
order for the player to continue. The marine player may do this in the normal manner while a genestealer player must
expend one action point to destroy a door once it has malfunctioned.
Heavy Flamer: By firing off three flame counters at once, the marine player can create a persistent fire effect that will
cover one counter for the rest of the game.

Remove rules for Power Axe and Cyclone Missile Launcher

Mission II - Surgical Destruction

Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of three terminators. One Blood Angel sergeant armed with a power
sword and storm bolter and two Blood Angel armed with a storm bolters and power fists. The Space Marine player
deploys on the squad on the starting squares shown on the map.

*Mark your Beta Strain Genestealers out from your normal stealers with some kind of counter so you can keep track.
Placing a purple arrow under their base might be an idea.

Mission III - Scramble

Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of five terminators. The squad consists of a sergeant armed with a
Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon, two armed with Storm Bolters and Power Fists
and one armed with a Chainfist and Storm Bolter. The Space Marine player deploys on the squad on the starting squares
shown on the map.

Mission IV - Bastion

Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of five terminators. The squad consists of a sergeant armed with a
Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon, two armed with Storm Bolters and Power Fists
and one armed with a Chainfist and Storm Bolter. The Space Marine player must split his squad in to two teams. One
team of two marines must be placed in Room A and one team of three marines must be placed in Room B.


275
The Ark of Dust - Mission 1 - Breakthrough





















Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The space marine player has two squads, One Space Wolf squad and one Blood angels squad. The Space Wolf squad
consists of a sergeant armed with a Power Axe and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon, two armed with
Storm Bolters and Power Fists and one armed with a Chainfist and Storm Bolter. The Blood Angels squad consists of a
sergeant armed with a Power Sword and Storm Bolter, a marine armed with a Storm Bolter, Power Fist and Cyclone
Missile Launcher (loaded with Web Missiles), 2 armed with Storm Bolters and Power Fists and one armed with a Storm
Bolter and Chain Fist.
Genestealers:
GS begin the mission with four blips and receives two reinforcement blips per turn. Blips may enter play at any entry area.

Special Rules
All doors in this area of the hulk are prone to malfunction. Upon attempting to open any door, either player must roll a D6.
On a 4+ the door will open as normal. On a roll of 3 or less, the door jams and must be destroyed in order for the player to
continue. The marine player may do this in the normal manner while a genestealer player must expend one action point to
destroy a door once it has malfunctioned.

Victory
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player wins by getting 3 or more terminators off the board via EACH exit point, for a total of 6 Space
Marines. It is not necessary for the Marines to be from the same squad. The Space Marine may achieve a drawn result by
only getting 3 marines off the board via one exit point.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player wins if the marine player cannot achieve his objective, either through killing eight marines or it
becoming impossible for the marine player to get three marines off via one exit point.

Unique Weaponry
Power Axe
Like the power sword, the power axe is a rare and extremely effective weapon awarded to Space Marines that have
proven themselves in battle. When fighting in a close assault to his front, a Space Marine armed with a power axe always
wins drawn combats.
Cyclone Missile Launcher (loaded with web missiles)
The cyclone missile launcher is a devastating, shoulder mounted missile launcher not suited to combat in the dense and
unstable environs of the inside of a Space Hulk, where the highly explosive ammunition may cause explosive
decompression. However, when loaded with web missiles, it becomes a highly effective defensive weapon, used to block
off corridors and prevent the enemy from advancing. The cyclone missile launcher may be fired twice in a game, blocking
off any tile space within line of sight and twelve squares of the user for the remainder of the game.This weapon costs two
AP to fire and cannot be fired as part of a combined action.
276
The Ark of Dust - Mission II - Surgical Destruction


Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of three terminators. One Blood Angel sergeant armed with a power
sword and storm bolter, one Blood Angel armed with a storm bolter and power fist and one Space Wolf armed with a
storm bolter and power fist. The Space Marine player deploys on the squad on the starting squares shown on the map.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips, and receives two reinforcement blips per turn. Blips may enter
play at any entry area.

Special Rules
Beta Strain Genestealers: This mission marks the first time the Space Marine forces on board the Ark of Dust encounter
one of the evolved Genestealer strains. Beta Strain Genestealers have a thicker carapace than the normal "Alpha" Strain
Genestealers. As such, even under sustained fire, a Beta Strain Genestealer can only ever be killed by shooting on a roll
of a 6. Close combat is unaffected. The Genestealer player has 4 of these special Genestealers to use in the game that
can be placed like normal Genestealers whenever a blip is revealed.
Bombs: In order to achieve their mission goals, the Space Marines must place and arm bombs in the rooms marked A, B
and C. In order to place and arm a bomb, a Space Marine must be standing in the room and expend a full four action
and/or command points.
Demoralised: The Blood Angels Sergeant in this mission is having one tough day. This coupled with having a Space Wolf
in his severely reduced squad means he is not at his commanding best. As such, he loses his ability to redraw his
command point counter.

Victory
Space Marines:
In order to win the mission, the Space Marine player must place bombs in all 3 rooms and have at least one marine leave
the board via the marked exit point. If all 3 bombs are placed and armed but no Marines escape the board, the mission
can be considered a draw.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player garners an outright win if he can kill all three Space Marines before they have placed and armed
all three bombs. If the Genestealer player can prevent the Marine player from getting a Marine off the board after he has
armed all three bombs, he may still attain a drawn result.

The Ark of Dust - Mission III - Scramble


Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of five terminators. The Space Wolf squad consists of a sergeant
armed with a Power Axe and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon, two armed with Storm Bolters and Power
Fists and one armed with a Chainfist and Storm Bolter. The Space Marine player deploys on the squad on the starting
squares shown on the map.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips, and receives one reinforcement blip per turn. Blips may enter
play at any entry area.

Special Rules
Bombs: In order to achieve their mission goals, the Space Marines must place and arm bombs in the rooms marked A, B,
C and D. In order to place and arm a bomb, a Space Marine must be standing in the room and expend a full four action
and/or command points.

Victory
Space Marines:
In order to win the mission, the Space Marine player must place bombs in all 4 rooms and have at least one marine leave
the board via the marked exit point. If all 4 bombs are placed and armed but no Marines escape the board, the mission
can be considered a draw.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player garners an outright win if he can kill all 5 Space Marines before they have placed and armed all
three bombs. If the Genestealer player can prevent the Marine player from getting a Marine off the board after he has
armed all 4 bombs, he may still attain a drawn result.

Space Hulk Ark of Dust - Mission IV - Bastion


Deployment and Forces
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad consisting of five terminators. The Space Wolf squad consists of a sergeant
armed with a Power Axe and Storm Shield, a marine with an Assault Cannon, two armed with Storm Bolters and Power
Fists and one armed with a Chainfist and Storm Bolter. The Space Marine player must split his squad in to two teams.
One team of two marines must be placed in Room A and one team of three marines must be placed in Room B.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player begins the mission with one blip. The rest of the blips must be divided in to reinforcement groups.
7 single blip counters and 7 stacks of two blip counters must be laid out at random. The Genestealer may play one of
these 14 reinforcement groups per turn (so either one or two blips.) Once he runs out of blips, recycle the stacks into an
even number of single blip and stacks of two Genestealer blips and continue doing this until the game is over

Special Rules:
Sealing Bulkheads: There is a sealable bulkhead at every Genestealer entry point. In order to seal a bulkhead, a
Terminator must stand next to the entry point and spend 1AP or CP. This can not be a combined action. Once the
bulkhead is sealed, the marine player removes the purple Genestealer entry point marker. The Genestealer player may
no longer bring Genestealers on here.

Victory
Space Marines:
In order to win the mission, the Space Marine must seal all of the bulkheads at every Genestealer entry point and have at
least one surviving marine at the end of the game.
Genestealers:
The Genestealer player wins if he kills all of the Space Marines before he can seal all of the bulkheads.

TOME OF FIRE
(A 3
rd
Edition Space Hulk Campaign)

The Salamanders
The Salamanders are one of the Loyalist First Founding Chapters of Space Marines. Hailing from the volcanic Death World of
Nocturne, the Salamanders follow the Codex Astartes but their doctrines are also strongly influenced by the Promethean Cult of
Nocturne, an accepted variant of the Imperial Cult that places high regard on self-reliance, self-sacrifice, and loyalty to each other as
well as to the Emperor.

Like many of the First Founding Chapters, the Salamanders recruit exclusively from the people of their homeworld, Nocturne.
Children aspiring to become Space Marines begin their training at the age of six or seven Terran years as the apprentice to a
Salamanders Astartes. They spend several years learning the art of the smith, and the most able apprentices are then judged by the
Chapter's Apothecaries and Chaplains to see if they are worthy (and capable of surviving the gene-seed organ implantation process)
to become Space Marines. Their training includes many of the same trials the Emperor and Primarch Vulkan competed in according
to Nocturnan legend, finally culminating in the hunting and slaying of a massive Salamander on Mount Deathfire.

The hammer and the fire are both important symbols of the Cult, and the Chapter makes widespread use of flamers, meltaguns, and
thunder hammers in their armoury. As one can imagine, this preference for flamers and meltas leads to a strong affinity among the
Salamanders for close-range shooting when in combat.

An unusual trait of the Salamanders is that their Battle-Brothers tend to be slower in reflex reaction than other Chapters, though the
origin of this factor is debated and has not been attributed to any factors present in the gene-seed. It is unknown whether this
defect is due to a problem with the gene-seed that manifested as a result of most Salamanders Battle-Brothers being raised on their
high-gravity world, or the psychological result of the Chapter's doctrines and psycho-conditioning against hastiness and impetuosity.
However, it has been noted that a Salamanders Space Marine can move just as quickly as any Astartes equipped with Power Armour,
which gives some weight to the psychological hypothesis. Also, as a result of a reaction between their genetics and the high levels of
radiation present on Nocturne due to the constant volcanic churning of rare earth elements from the planet's deep crust,
Salamanders Battle-Brothers usually have dark or jet black skin and bright, burning eyes with the capability to see in the infrared
band of the electromagnetic spectrum, which gives them a natural form of night vision.

Self-reliance and craftsmanship are both highly prized traits within the Salamanders Chapter as their Primarch Vulkan himself was a
great Artificer, forging many wonders.

The Lost Artefacts of Vulkan
Around a thousand years after the Horus Heresy, the Salamanders Primarch Vulkan hid nine artefacts around the galaxy for his
Chapter to find as a test to see if they were worthy of his leadership. He then disappeared, leaving his Chapter with the message that
whenever the Forgefather of the Salamanders had found all nine items, Vulkan would return to lead his Chapter to victory over the
enemies of the Imperium in its final days of greatest need, according to the signs foreseen in the Chapter's book of prophecy, the
Tome of Fire. Of these nine relics, five have been recovered, three of whichthe Spear of Vulkan, Kesare's Mantle and the Gauntlet
of the Forgeare wielded by the Chapter's Forgefather, Vulkan He'stan. Twothe Chalice of Fire and the Eye of Vulkanremain on
the Nocturnean moon of Prometheus in the Chapter's fortress-monastery, while the last four artefactsthe Engine of Woes, the
Obsidian Chariot, the Unbound Flame and the Song of Entropyhave yet to be discovered.

What follows is the story of how the Salamanders reclaimed one of these artefacts

294
PLAYING WITH SALAMANDERS SPACE MARINES

The following rule changes are intended for those playing with Salamanders Space Marines. The Blood Angels
miniatures provided in Games Workshops 3
rd
Edition of Space Hulk function perfectly for this purpose.

If the Space Marine player wishes, he may choose to play the Tome of Fire campaign using Blood Angels and
the standard 3
rd
Edition Space Hulk rules. Doing so will make the overall campaign easier, but the missions in
Tome of Fire - Part 2 will be much more difficult.

Rule Changes
Cautious: Salamanders have slower reaction times and, consequently, only receive 2 minutes to act during
their Action Phase (to simulate the faster speed of the Genestealers); for each Sergeant on a team, the Space
Marine player may add an additional 30 seconds to the timer (for a maximum of 3 minutes).

Flame Resistant: Salamanders entering a tile with a flamer blast are killed on a roll of 5 or higher. If a Space
Marine survives the die roll, he may move freely through the flaming area for the rest of his turn. Salamanders
suffering a direct hit from a flamer blast (i.e. from friendly fire) must roll for survival as per normal flamer blast
rules (killed on a roll of 2 or higher). Again, if the Space Marine survives, he may freely traverse the flamed
area with no further damage.

Night Vision: a Salamanders' weapon range remains unaffected in unnatural darkness.

Air Ducts: Mission 6: Song of Entropy utilizes the air ducts tile set from the Defilement of Honor campaign
(White Dwarf 197). For your convenience, a PDF of the air ducts tiles has been attached at the end of this
campaign. The special rules explaining the use of the air duct tiles are listed below.
GENESTEALERS
Genestealers or Blips may enter an air duct from the square directly in front of the air duct at a cost of 2 APs. Genestealers or Blips
may move from the end of an air duct into the square directly in front of the air duct at a cost of 1 AP. With the exception of
entering and leaving, Genestealers and Blips move through air ducts exactly as if they were corridors. When converting a Blip in an
air duct, you may only place Genestealer models in the air duct. Models which cannot be placed in the air duct itself are lost. The
opposite is also true: Blips in a corridor or room cannot convert into an air duct.
SPACE MARINES
The air ducts are too high to allow Space Marines entry and, although the Space Marines can see the opening of the air duct, they
have no line of sight into the air ducts themselves. This means that the Space Marines cannot fire at Genestealers inside air ducts
and Blips are not forced to convert. The only exception to this rule is that a heavy flamer may be fired at the first square of the air
duct. This may only be done by a Space Marine directly in line with the opening and with no models in between. Either one or two
flame counters may be placed on the first square of the air duct. If there is a Blip on the targeted square, convert the Blip first and
then roll for the Genestealers in the flamed square.
HINT: A Space Marine on overwatch guarding an air duct will have to target the exit square (the square directly in front of the air
duct). Then, when a Genestealer is moved from the air duct into the exit square, the Space Marine can fire at it.
CLOSE ASSAULT FROM AIR DUCTS
If a Terminator is standing in an exit square it may be attacked in close assault by a Genestealer inside the air duct. The resulting
combat cannot be drawn; if the result would be a draw, the Genestealer wins and the Space Marine is removed. In any case, the
winning model is left in the exit square. Note that a Terminator on overwatch in an exit square does not fire at a Genestealer
attacking from an air duct as he has no warning before the Genestealer strikes!

TOME OF FIRE - PART 1

Over a millennium ago, a Salamanders command ship called the Golden Flame disappeared while transporting
rare pages of the Tome of Fire, the Promethean book of prophecy. Against all expectations, the ship has
recently resurfaced within jumping distance of a Salamanders command post. Preliminary materia scans
indicate that the vessel has returned as part of a small space hulk infested with Genestealers.

295
MISSION 1: Faith of the Forgefather
STATUS
The Forgefather is very interested in the pages the Golden Flame was carrying before its disappearance and
has asked that a squad of his best soldiers be sent to investigate. The Genestealer infested ship, dubbed
Wormtongue, will be boarded by a team of Salamanders Space Marines from the 1st Company, the renowned
Firedrakes.

Objective
Establish a secure perimeter on the Genestealer controlled vessel.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a Space Marine
armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed with an assault cannon and power fist, a
Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and chainfist, and a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and
power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
No Lurking: In this mission, blips and Genestealers are not allowed to lurk. This means that they may not use
an entry area that is within six spaces of a Space Marine, as they would be forced to lurk should they do so.
Any blips that are unable to enter play because of this are destroyed.

VICTORY
Space Marines: The Space Marines secure Genestealer entry points by closing all the marked bulkhead doors.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill the marines before they can secure the map.


296
297
MISSION 2: The Lost Pages
STATUS
Perimeter secure. Secondary scan of Wormtongue confirms materia matching original Tome of Fire is
scattered throughout vessel.

Objective
Locate, retrieve, scan, and transmit the lost pages of the Tome of Fire.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a Space Marine
armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed with lightning claws, a Space Marine armed
with a storm bolter and chainfist, and a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
None.

VICTORY
Space Marines: The Space Marines spend 3 consecutive APs on each of the three marked map locations,
thereby transmitting scans of the pages to the Forgefather's ship.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill the marines before they can transmit scans of all the lost pages.

298

299
MISSION 3: Vulkans Trail
STATUS
Supplemental data recovered along with the lost pages suggests Genestealer hybrids used the pages to locate
and secure one of the four lost artefacts of Vulkan.

Objective
Use the C.A.T. to extract the artefact's last recorded location from Wormtongue's central computer. Do not
allow Genestealers to destroy the C.A.T..

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed
with lightning claws, a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and chainfist, and two Space Marines armed
with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with three blips and receives one reinforcement blip
per turn. Once the Space Marine player has used the C.A.T. to access the ships central computer, the
Genestealer player receives two reinforcement blips per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
The C.A.T.: Place the C.A.T. in the space with the Space Marine who is carrying it at the start of the mission.
Genestealers are allowed to enter the square with the C.A.T. but cannot pick it up or move with it. This means
that a Genestealer that enters the square with the C.A.T. must leave it behind if it moves on. The C.A.T. will
not move on its own.

Guard the C.A.T.: If the Genestealer player kills the Space Marine carrying the C.A.T., the C.A.T. is destroyed. A
marine may pass the C.A.T. to another adjacent marine for 1 AP. He may freely drop the C.A.T. during his turn,
but picking it up costs 1 AP. Dropping the C.A.T. during the Genestealer players turn costs 1 CP.

VICTORY
Space Marines: A Space Marine brings the C.A.T. to the central computer (marked X on the map) and spends
exactly 4 APs and 2 CPs to activate it and extract the data; the C.A.T. is returned to the secure area after
downloading the data.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill the marine carrying the C.A.T. (thereby destroying it) or, if the Space
Marines have dropped the C.A.T., the Genestealers kill all the marines.








300



End of Part 1

All data pertaining to the Tome of Fire and the lost Vulkan artefact has been uploaded to the Forgefathers
ship. Despite expected fatalities, contact with Wormtongue has been deemed a success. Rather than risk
further lives, the Forgefather has directed all Space Marines to return to ship.

Within hours of vacating the space hulk, the Salamanders Techmarines have decoded and deciphered the data
downloaded from the C.A.T.. Using this data, the Techmarines were able to triangulate the last known location
of the Vulkan artifact captured by the Genestealer Hybrids. With a sure knowledge of relics location, the
Forgefather has authorized the full-scale destruction of the space hulk Wormtongue.
301
TOME OF FIRE - PART 2

The location of one of the four lost Vulkan artefacts has been successfully traced to a second Genestealer ship
in a distant star system. Scouts report that the ship appears to be a sleek black shard of glossy rock, longer (if
not larger) than any space hulk yet encountered. Due to its size and appearance, many of the Salamanders
have taken to calling the ship Obsidian Chariot.

Initial scans of Obsidian Chariot reveal an enormous Genestealer presence: nearly 200,000 purestrains in
cryogenic stasis. To prevent the Genestealers from awakening and swarming the boarding party, Obsidian
Chariot's cryogenics control room must be destroyed within the first 30 minutes of breaching the ship. To
achieve this goal, the Forgefather has commanded a double pronged attack against the cryogenics control
room.

MISSION 4: Obsidian Chariot
STATUS
Two squads of marines will enter from opposing docking bays and make their way to the cryogenics room.
One team must sacrifice itself and blow up the cryogenics control console; the other must continue onward
and locate the artefact.

Objective
Seal off the engine room from the cryogenics control room, then blow up the cryogenics control console.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has two squads. Squad one consists of a Sergeant armed with a
thunder hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine
armed with a storm bolter and chainfist, and two Space Marines armed with a storm bolter and power fist.
Squad two consists of a Sergeant armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a Space Marine armed with an
assault cannon and power fist, and three Space Marines armed with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
Pressed for Time: The Space Marines must complete their objectives within 15 turns or else the Genestealer
player wins.

VICTORY
Space Marines: The Space Marines close all the bulkhead doors and destroy the cryogenics control room
(marked X) with a heavy flame blast or two shots from the assault cannon (the assault cannon may target an
empty space in the cryogenics control room for this purpose). Additionally, at least four surviving marines
must be on the engine room side of the sealed bulkhead doors before destroying the cryogenics control room.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill the Space Marines carrying the heavy flamer and assault cannon before
they can destroy the cryogenics control room, the heavy flamer and assault cannon run out of ammunition
before completing the objective, or the Space Marines take more than 15 turns to complete their mission.

Draw: The Space Marines blow up the cryogenics control room before sealing the bulkhead doors or the
Genestealers kill seven or more Space Marines.

302

303
MISSION 5: Engine of Woes
STATUS
Despite the valiant efforts of the Firedrakes, over five thousand Genestealers were awoken from cryo-sleep
before the cryogenics control console could be destroyed. Large sections of the ship have also become
engulfed in flames, making it treacherous to advance farther let alone risk the use of another flamer blast.

Objective
Traverse Obsidian Chariot's flame-engulfed engine room and penetrate to the main computer room. Once
there, access the computer and determine the location of the lost Vulkan artefact.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed
with lightning claws, a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and chainfist, and two Space Marines armed
with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
Residual Flames: The mission begins with six sections of the engine room on fire. Place a flamer blast token in
each of the tile sections marked on the map. At the beginning of the Genestealer player's turn and beginning
with the Genestealer player, the Genestealer player and the Space Marine player alternate turns removing
flamer blasts from the board.

Unstable Engine Room: The Space Marine carrying the heavy flamer may not shoot into any of the marked tile
sections. If he does so, the ships engines explode and the Space Marines automatically lose the mission.
Because the mission begins with each of the six flamer blast tokens in use, the Space Marine carrying the
heavy flamer may not shoot the flamer unless the flamer blast tokens from the board have been returned to
him (up to a maximum of six).

VICTORY
Space Marines: At least three Space Marines make it to the computer room (marked X), and a Space Marine
uses 4 APs to access the computer and locate the artefact.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill all the Space Marines before they can access the ship's main computer.

Draw: Less than three Space Marines are in the computer room after accessing the main computer.
304

305
MISSION 6: Song of Entropy
STATUS
After accessing Obsidian Chariot's main computer, the marines have identified the Genestealer ship as being
of Eldar origin. Although this disqualifies the ship from being one of the nine artefacts of Vulkan, the computer
did reveal the nature and location of the actual Vulkan artefact: a hammer of epic power being kept inside a
room two floors below the marines.

Objective
Navigate the space hulk's dark ventilation system and retrieve Vulkan's lost hammer.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and power sword, a Space Marine
armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed with lightning claws, a Space Marine armed
with a storm bolter and chainfist, and a Space Marine armed with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
Unnatural Darkness: The ventilation system is unnaturally dark, so much so that the Space Marines suit lamps
are having difficulty penetrating the darkness. If the Space Marine player is not using Salamanders (e.g. he is
using the standard rules and playing with Blood Angels), he suffers a penalty from having to shoot in the dark.
For this mission only, the Space Marines' shooting range is limited to five spaces (instead of the typical
unlimited/12). Due to their infrared vision, Salamanders Space Marines suffer no penalties from shooting in
the unnatural darkness.

Air Ducts: A network of air ducts runs just below ceiling level in the corridors and rooms. Some of the air ducts
are large enough to allow Genestealers to move through. Air ducts are shown on the mission maps and are
treated like corridors with a few additional rules. See Rule Changes on page 2 for more detail.

VICTORY
Space Marines: A Space Marine enters the space containing Vulkan's hammer (marked X) and spends 1 AP to
pick up the artefact.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill all the marines.
306

307
MISSION 7: Unbound Flame
STATUS
Glory to the Emperor, Vulkan's hammer has been reclaimed! Based on the fragmented account given of the
weapon in the lost pages of the Tome of Fire, the Forgefather has declared this to be the artefact known as
Unbound Flame. Unfortunately for the marines, they are too deep inside the space hulk for the Forgefather's
ship to teleport them to safetyand the surviving Genestealers are converging on their location.

Objective
Clear a path to the ship's disposal chute and get the hammer off the ship.

FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Space Marines: The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of a Sergeant armed with a thunder
hammer and storm shield, a Space Marine armed with a heavy flamer and power fist, a Space Marine armed
with a storm bolter and chainfist, and two Space Marines armed with a storm bolter and power fist.

Genestealers: The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips and receives two reinforcement blips
per turn. Blips may enter play at any area.

SPECIAL RULES
Wielding the hammer: Unbound Flame is half thunder hammer, half meltagun and will superheat anything it
hits. In close combat, the Sergeant rolls as per normal thunder hammer attack (1d6 + 2). Regardless of the
outcome, the Genestealer must then roll for flamer damage (2 or higher kills the Genestealer).

Death of the Sergeant: Because all Salamanders marines are experts at wielding a hammer, if the Sergeant is
killed before reaching the chute, another Space Marine may enter the Sergeant's square and spend 1 AP to
exchange his primary weapon for Unbound Flame (attacking with 1d6 + 1 since he does not retain the
Sergeants additional +1 bonus to attack). If the Space Marine player is NOT using Salamanders Space Marines
(e.g. he is using the standard rules and playing with Blood Angels), the Space Marine player loses if the
Sergeant is killed.

Brood Lord: Once per game, when the Genestealer player draws a 3-blip, he may instead exchange it for the
Brood Lord.

VICTORY
Space Marines: The Sergeant (or another marine carrying the hammer) makes it to the disposal chute (marked
X) and spends 2 APs to jump ship.

Genestealers: The Genestealers kill all the marines (or, if playing with Blood Angels instead of Salamanders,
the Genestealers kill the Sergeant).

On the edge of human space lies a region
known as the Eastern Fringe. It is the furthest
reaches of the Imperium, located on the far
side of the galactic core to Holy Terra, and is
often lawless and subject to long periods of
isolation.
During the Age of Strife the Eastern Fringe
suffered greatly. While the western reaches of
the galaxy were quickly re-united under the
banner of The Emperor it would be many more
years until the Imperium reached the isolated
worlds in the east.

Terrible wars had been fought, humanity
against the terrors of alien attack - man against
man in petty civil wars. But worst of all were
the unknown horrors that came from beyond
the stars, aeons old.
The breed of beast known as Genestealers had
been known for some time as an insidious
pest, but it was not until thousands of years
passed that their true nature was revealed.
Magos Biologis of the Adeptus Mechanicus
still debate if the Genestealer is originally a
creature of the Hive Fleets, or simply absorbed
into the genetic makeup as-is.
It matters little, as what previously had meant
death to a world through infection and blood
now meant death to systems and sectors at the
jaws of the Tyranid Hive Mind.
It is with this new, terrible, knowledge that the
terror of Genestealer infestation had to be
fought with a new urgency. When a brood
took deep enough root in a planets society it
would call to the Hive Mind, summoning the
world consuming fleets to feed. Costly wars
and loss of resources would be the best
outcome.



Drifting silently for untold years in the warp
aboard Space Hulks the Genestealers could
strike anywhere at any time with little
warning.
On the Eastern Fringe the Imperial Fleet is
spread thin, battling Orks, the expanding Tau
empire and the tendrils of Kraken and
Behemoth. They have no resources to spare to
track down a possible hulk in the depths of
space.
The Hulks had to be stopped, and only the
marines of the Adeptus Astartes were able to
match the Hulks sudden appearance and face
Genestealers in the twisting corridors and
corroding passages.
This is the tale of one such action carried out
by the Space Marines of the Rainbow Warriors
Chapter aboard the Hulk known as The Cradle
of Despair.
Y
312
Rules
Changes
The Timer
The timer is judged in a different manner in
the Cradle of Despair campaign than in the
main rulebook. Rather than a fixed amount the
timer varies dependant on the number of
Sergeants and Officers on the board at the
beginning of the Marine players turn.
The Marine player starts with a timer of two
minutes only to complete his turn. For every
Sergeant, Librarian or Chaplain on the board
he adds another 30 seconds. Lieutenants add
45 seconds, and Captains another minute.
For example: A Marine player with a Sergeant
and Lieutenant on the board would receive
three minutes and fifteen seconds to complete
his turn (2:00 + 0:30 + 0:45 = 3:15).
The longest a Marine player can have for their
turn is capped at four minutes. Also the
Marines only receive the bonus time if the
character is on the board at the start of their
turn. Should a character die during the
Marines turn (by falling down a ladder or
losing assault for example) the time bonus is
not lost until the Marines next turn.
It is recommended that the Genestealer player
reminds the Marine player at regular intervals
of the time remaining, and counts down the
last thirty seconds (laughing ominously or
maniacally is optional, but recommended).
Also stopping the timer when a rules query or
interruption occurs is advised.
The Genestealer has no time restriction as per
normal.

++Move! Move! Move! ++
++Four to the left! Hurry up with that
suppression!++
Rel oading
The Cradle of Despair allows for the heavy
flamer to be re-loaded mid game and uses a
slightly modified method of reloading.
Reloading the heavy flamer or assault cannon
costs 4APs or CPs as per the main rulebook.
However this is split into two separate actions
of 2APs each.
First the empty ammo canister is detached,
costing 2APs. The weapon is now unloaded.
Unloaded weapons clearly cannot fire in any
capacity.
This allows the reloading to be performed as
two actions, rather than one 4AP one.
Weapons may obviously only reload with the
correct type of reload, however if two models
have the same type of weapon one may give
another a reload following the rules for objects
in the main rulebook (although the reload is
destroyed if the model carrying it is slain).
Example: Trooper Shukri is out of ammunition
for his flamer (and has expended his own
reload). Trooper Bodan has a full flamer and
a reload. Bodan moves to Shukri at the cost of
3APs, and being adjacent uses her last AP to
pass the flamer reload to Shukri.

F l amer and Thunder
hammer Sel f
Des t r uc t
A flamer or thunder hammer wielding Marine
may self destruct their weapon as a last resort.
A flamer must have one shot of ammunition
remaining (and loaded into the weapon). At
313
the cost of 2APs or CPs the Marine Player
may declare they are self destructing the
flamer. Remove the flamer trooper
immediately as a casualty.
A not e on Mar ine
Equipment
It must be noted that players should read the
mission descriptions carefully. Whereas the 3
rd

Edition standard missions use the same
characters for ever mission the same is not true
for this campaign.
The force of the explosion is so powerful that
all models are hit as per a normal flamer hit,
but any failed kill rolls may be re-rolled. The
room is then considered on fire as if it had
been flamed normally.
For instance in the 3
rd
Edition missions feature
a Sergeant with a thunder hammer and a
Marine with lighting claws, but this campaign
has Marines armed with thunder hammers and
Sergeants with lightning claws. Similarly not
every Sergeant has a power sword, some have
power fists.
The thunder hammer may be self destructed at
the cost of 1AP or CP. Remove the thunder
hammer marine immediately as a casualty.
The explosion effects the whole board section,
destroying any Marine or door on a roll of 4+
and Genestealer on a 2+. If there is a model
behind a door, but on the same board section,
roll to see if the door is destroyed. If it is roll
for the model behind the door as the blast
carries past the barrier. If the door is not
destroyed the model behind the door is
unharmed.
The main rulebook has all the relevant
modifiers, just be sure to check they are added
correctly.
d
The first threw itself at him wildly, its claws
raking sparks from his storm shield as the
hammer cracked through its skull. He had no
time to pause, slaying the second with his
return stroke. The third lunged with its talons,
but Thu brought the edge of his shield down,
pinning the beasts arms to the ground before
pulping its body.
TV, weve got hostile forces inbound,
multiple blips converging on your location.
They must be held.
Roger that Command.
Thu TV Vukasan stepped forward into the
intersection of the two tunnels, the glow from
his suit lights disappearing rapidly in the
darkness.
So it went, killing one after the other, the
corridor becoming slick with blood and gore.
But more came, ripping through the bulkheads,
teeth bared. Stepping forward he swung
wildly, killing with every stroke.
Gauntleted fists tightened around the haft of
his thunder hammer as auspex returns pinged
in his headset. Genestealers, at least a dozen
by the size of the blips, coming at him from
three directions. He turned awkwardly in the
confined space and shut the bulkheads to his
sides, and watched as the blips diverted their
course. He stepped backwards into a combat
stance as the rapport of the auspex quickened.
He could see them now, a glimmer of chitin
and claw flashing in the darkness.
Mission complete, pull back Trooper!
But there was no chance to escape, they were
on him, claws digging into his armour, teeth
clamped on his shield arm, holding it down.
Thu smiled as he swung his hammer one last
time, and his world exploded in white fire.

Chaplains are a vital part of every space
marine Chapter, and this is no different in the
Rainbow Warriors.
They function as inspirational leaders and
moral guides to the other troopers. A Chaplain
must be steadfast and resolute where others,
even a Space Marine, would falter. They hold
fast a faith in the Emperors great plan for
them to cleanse the galaxy of the impure
mutant, the tainted heretic and the hated xenos.
This is no different (and perhaps even more
vital) when the Terminator Corps goes to war
on the eve of battle each trooper meditates
on their duty to the Emperor, and many seek
out their Chaplains for guidance. It is no little
burden; to be tasked with the spiritual strength
of the Chapters greatest warriors, but the
blood of the Emperor flows in each marines
veins and gives them strength.

The Chaplains of the Rainbow Warriors tend
to be less outwardly zealous and bombastic
than many of their brethren. This is mostly due
to their different interpretation of the Emperor:
He is viewed within the chapter as a mortal
man, the perfect culmination of humanity.
They see themselves as his inheritors, the last
true guardians of humanity and the Emperors
will.
In the example of His great duty and sacrifice
they guide the troopers of the chapter to
emulate His greatness in mind and body and
Chaplains embody this belief totally.
When at rest Chaplains are teachers and
scholars, but when called to battle can always
be found where the fighting is fiercest - their
crozius and storm bolter in hand, bringing the
light of the Emperor to the unworthy.
Chapl ains in games
Chaplains are equipped with a storm bolter,
Crozius Arcanum and Rosarius. The Chaplain
is also a fierce fighter, so rolls one die and
adds +1 to their score in assault, regardless of
facing.







Chaplain DeSilva aboard the Shadow of Hate
The Cr oz ius Ar c anum
The Crozius Arcanum is the Chaplains
symbol of office and authority. It is also a
powerful weapon, destroying armour and flesh
with ease.
It follows the same rules as the Power Sword,
found in the main rulebook.

The powerful force field of the Rosarius
protects the wearer from great harm, whatever
the source.
When attacked count the die roll as one lower
than it actually is (though never lower than 1).
For example a genestealer rolls 5, 4 & 1 while
the Chaplain rolls a 4+1 a 5. Normally this
would be a draw, but the Genestealers score is
modified to 4, 3 & 1, so the Chaplain wins.
When facing the Broodlord the scores are
modified before being added together.

315
The Tec hmar ine
Techmarines are an everyday part of life
within a Chapter they maintain weapons,
armour and equipment, as well as tending to
vehicles and Dreadnoughts.
But first and foremost they are warriors. When
the Terminator Corps boards a hulk its more
technically minded brethren don their armour
and step into the boarding torpedoes.
It is not only to provide logistical support, but
vital tactical assets such as specialist
equipment and skills. Many times a stranded
squad has been rescued by the timely
reactivation of an ancient elevator shaft or
deactivation of old security systems.
Tec hmar ines in Games
A Techmarine is equipped with a storm bolter
and either an Auspex or Photon Launcher.
They roll a single unmodified die in assault.
The Aus pex
The Auspex is a powerful scanning device
incorporated into a Power Fist, so follows the
standard rules for that weapon as well as those
listed below.
If there is a Techmarine equipped with a
scanner the marine player can scan one blip for
a cost of one AP or CP. There is no distance
measurement or LOS required though only one
blip may be scanned per Techmarine per turn.







When a blip is scanned it is immediately
turned over, revealing its value, then turned
face down once again.
This is not a conversion, though if the
Broodlord is available and a 3 is revealed the
Genestealer player can elect to place it as an
involuntary conversion.

The Phot on L aunc her
The Photon Launcher is a short range grenade
launcher, firing illuminating shells. It is
incorporated into a Chainfist, so follows the
standard rules for that weapon as well as those
listed below.
The Photon Launcher is fired in the same
manner as the Heavy Flamer (targeting a board
section rather than a model), with a range of
12 squares at the cost of 1AP. This cannot be
combined with a movement action.
Any model in the affected section must roll to
see if it is blinded. Each model, friend of foe,
must roll a D6 Marines are blinded on a 5+,
Genestealers on a 3+. The effect is blocked by
closed doors, but not other models.
Blinded models loose half their APs in their
next turn, though CPs can be used by blinded
marines as normal. Additionally a targeted
Marine automatically looses Overwatch or
Guard, regardless of if he was blinded or not.
316
Capt ains and
L ieut enant s
L ieut enant s in games
Lieutenants are equipped with a Storm Bolter,
Power Sword or Power Fist and an Iron Halo.
They also have the Commander ability. In
assault the Lieutenant rolls one die and adds
+1 to their result when fighting to their front.
The Terminator Corps is lead by several
Captains and Lieutenants. Each is not only a
masterful warrior but a superb tactician and
inspirational leader.
Ir on Hal o
A Captain seldom takes directly to the field,
instead staying in the rear to co-ordinate the
attack and defence of all the squads in battle.
They provide vital guidance to the squad
leaders and feed them tactical data from every
available source.
The Iron Halo is a symbol of authority and
leadership. It is also a potent energy shield,
protecting the wearer from harm. It follows the
same rules as the Chaplains Rosarius, found
previously.
But when they do take to the field of battle
their enemies tremble as one of the most
accomplished warriors of mankind has come
to face them. Seldom do many opponents
stand against a Terminator Captain.
Commander
Lieutenants are some of the greatest tactical
minds in the Chapter. To represent this when a
Lieutenant is on the board the marine player
may re-draw the Command Point token in the
same manner as for a Sergeant. The re-draw
may only be done once, regardless of the
presence of a second Lieutenant or a Sergeant.



Additionally the Lieutenant gives the marine
player one extra CP per turn, meaning they
will have from 2-7 CPs. If the Lieutenant is
killed this CP is not lost until the Mission
Status phase.



Lieutenant Hawkins engaging the enemy.
Capt ains in Games Second to the Captain are the Companys
Lieutenants, themselves great leaders and
warriors in their own right. Within the
Rainbow Warriors Terminator Corps they are
the elite of close quarters fighters drawn from
the best the Chapter has to offer. Each has
years of combat experience and has excelled in
environments such as mines, star ship interiors
and hive cities.
Captains are equipped with a Storm Bolter,
Power Sword and an Iron Halo. They also
have the Supreme Commander ability. In
assault the Captain rolls one die and adds +2 to
their result when fighting to their front.
Supr eme Commander
Many are drawn from hives themselves, or are
simply the most vicious individuals up close
and personal the Chapter has to offer.
Regardless of the source each has an affinity
with dark, restrictive, unknown battlefields
the battlegrounds of the Terminator Corps.
This is the same as the Lieutenants
Commander ability, but gives +2 CPs per turn.
The two abilities do not stack however, so
there is a maximum of 8 CPs available per
turn. If the Captain is killed and there is also a
Lieutenant on the board the marine player still
gains +1 CP per turn.
317
Genes t eal er Hybr ids
and Br ood Br ot her s
The most dangerous facet of Genestealer
infestation is that after several generations pass
it becomes impossible to easily distinguish the
infected from normal humans. Once the taint
has spread further than a few hosts the
Genestealer clan will include not only the
hybrid creatures but their enthralled human
kin.
Genes t eal er L if e Cyc l e
When a purestrain Genestealer infects a human
host it alters the victims DNA and imposes
what Ordo Xenos Inquisitors believe to be a
form of psychic dominance over the host. This
induces an intense desire to reproduce in the
host, an act that passes the infection on to all
they come in contact with.
When the child is born it will be a deformed
monster, part human, part Genestealer. Most
will have the distinctive elongated heads,
hunched posture, plates of bony carapace and
extra clawed arms. The parents will not notice
this and will instinctively hide the child away.
This child has the same infective properties as
the purestrain creature, although their children
will be more human only one additional
limb, a more human appearance overall but
still clearly bestial.
The next generation will be able to move in
open society, with a more upright gait, no (or
only vestigial) extra limbs and a more human
mentality. Thankfully this third generation is
often sterile, and still clearly abhorrent to look
at when examined closely.
It is the fourth generation that signals the
doom of an infected planet. These hybrids
appear almost normal, but are frequently tall
and heavily built with a piercing gaze.
Extremely charismatic (likely through subtle
psychic manipulation) they worm their way
into positions of power, posing as politicians,
merchants and religious leaders.
When a fourth generation hybrid breeds (in the
normal human manner) it will spawn either
tainted humans, a hybrid form or even a
purestrain Genestealer. With more purestrains
being born the cancer will spread faster and be
impossible to cut out.

The Ext ended F amil y
It is not only the Hybrids that present a grave
threat to mankind, but the infected hosts and
their kin.
It is often the case that once infected a human
will only produce one hybrid offspring, the
rest being normal humans. Other cases have
been noted where the infected produce many
hybrids.
Either way any non-hybrid children will be
born into the Genestealers family, and will
share the same psychic bond with their mutant
siblings as their parents. These Brood Brothers
go on to infiltrate the military and government
of the planet, leaving it ripe for conquering.
The brood often masquerades as a harmless
cult shunning excess by living a life of
isolation and wearing all concealing robes.
The simple message is often about piety to
318
elders and revering children. This draws in the
unwary to become new hosts, whilst
maintaining an air of legitimacy to avoid the
prying eyes of Imperial authorities.
The Magus
The head of this cult is initially the first human
infected under the control of the purestrain
(known as the Patriarch in this case).
However once a fourth generation hybrid is
born they take the reins as the Magus.
Intensely charismatic and almost always
powerfully psychic they can easily dominate
those around them.
The rise of a Magus will swell the numbers of
the brood exponentially, and destroying the
threat may prove impossible by this point,
leaving exterminatus the only option.
m
Hybr ids in Games
Hybrids are seldom encountered on Hulks, but
occasionally they will be found outside the
confines of cyro-stasis. This is often the
precursor to an invasion as the more human
appearance allows for easier integration into a
unsuspecting society.

Hybr ids and Br ood Br ot her s
Hybrids and Brood Brothers are treated as
being the same unit for game purposes. They
enter play as blips and are revealed as normal,
though there will be special rules associated
with this found in the mission description.
Each Hybrid has 6APs and moves in the same
manner as a Genestealer.
In assault the Hybrid rolls a single dice, but
subtracts 2 from the result as they are nowhere
near as powerful as a purestrain. Any result
less than 1 is treated as a 1, so the combat
always has a chance to tie.
Example: A Hybrid assaults a Marine armed
with a power fist. The Hybrid rolling 1D6-2
comes up with a 1 and subtracts 2 for a total
of -1. This is treated as being a 1 however.
Fortunately the Marine, clearly overconfident,
also rolls a 1 and the combat is a tie.

When shooting at a hybrid the Marines dice
rolls are treated as being the same as for
normal Genestealers. Hybrids are more agile
and smaller targets so any gain in killing
power is balanced out by their being harder to
hit accurately.
Even though many hybrids may be modelled
carrying weapons they are considered either
non-functioning or not powerful enough to
have any hope of injuring a Space Marine in
terminator armour.
Author Note: I decided against armed hybrids
as it would make things far too complicated
and slow the game down. This is the same
reason Hybrids use Genestealer move points
and damage rolls.

The Magus
The magus follows all the rules for Hybrids
given previously, but also has access to
psychic powers.
The Magus may only use psychic powers
when on the board, not as a blip. Also by
virtue of being a powerful psyker the Magus is
immune to the Psychic Storm power.
The Magus has 15 Psi Points per game, to
spend on the following powers:

319
Pick any one Genestealer of Hybrid within line
of sight to the Magus. They immediately gain
2APs to use immediately, even if they have
already been activated. This costs 2 Psi Points
to use.
Mons t r ous St r engt h
For every Psi Point spent, to a maximum of 3,
the Magus increases the score of their assault
by 1. This gives the Magus a maximum roll of
D6+1. The Magus does not need to declare if
he is using Psi Points until both players have
rolled their dice.

F ir es t or m
If the Magus is in close combat with a
Librarian the player who is being attacked
must decide to use any Psi Points before their
opponent.
Calling forth the terrible powers of the warp
the Magus projects forth a great wall of fire.
This power costs 6 Psi Points, and is a
persistant area effect weapon in the same
manner as a heavy flamer. Affected Marines
are killed on a roll of 4+, Genestealers on a
roll of 6+. The flames block line of sight, and a
model moving in the room takes a hit every
square they move through.
Example: A Magus assaults a Librarian. The
Magus rolls a 5, the Librarian a total of 4. The
Librarian must declare how many Psi Points
he is expending before the Magus decides.
Obviously with the Magus being capped the
Librarian has an advantage, but if either is
low on Psi Points it becomes relevant.


The vac-suits clad figure darted past her
vision. It had only been a glimpse but the
deformed shape and gait meant only one thing.
The following powers are used at any point
during the Genestealer phase, and do not count
as actions. The Magus may only use one per
turn, and must have enough Psi Points
available.
Hybrids, Sergeant Yadiz growled. It
rounded the corner ahead, a boxy autogun in
its hands. Tracer rounds streaked down the
corridor deflecting from her armour in a
shower of sparks. Seeing the futility of its
attack the creature ran, a third clawed arm
raised high. Stepping forward to meet the
mutant she clenched her fist, ready to strike.

Shadow of t he Br ood
The Magus extends the power of the Brood
Mind and confounds the Marines scanners.
Yadiz grunted as the talons tore at her helmet,
smashing out an optic. The power fist came
down and pulverised the unholy mix of man
and alien. The Sergeant felt the carapace crack
under the force of her blow, the hybrid
crumpling to the deck in a ruined heap.
At the cost of 4 Psi Points the Genestealer
player may swap any two blips on the board,
so long as they have not been activated. They
may both be activated as normal after being
swapped.

Target eliminated, she voxed.
Cat al ys t
Blood and ichor oozed between her fingers as
she swept her storm bolter down the corridor.
Calling on the will of the Patriarch the Magus
energises his kin to action beyond their
fearsome norm.
No contacts, continuing advance.

Mission
Introduction
Firstly, to play this campaign you will need the
following miniatures:
Genes t eal er s
Loads of Genestealers (including a
Broodlord).
6-12 suitable figures to represent
Genestealer Hybrids.
One Hybrid Magus.

Spac e Mar ines
One Captain with Storm Bolter and
Power Sword
One Lieutenant with Storm Bolter and
Power Fist
One Chaplain with Storm Bolter and
Crozius
One Librarian with Storm Bolter and
Force Axe
One Techmarine with Storm Bolter
and Auspex
One Techmarine with Storm Bolter
and Photon Launcher
Two Sergeants with Storm Bolters and
Power Swords
Two Sergeants with Storm Bolters and
Power Fists
Two Marines with Heavy Flamers and
Power Fists
Two Marines with Assault Cannons
and Power Fists
One Marine with Storm Bolters and
Chain Fist
One Marine with Lightning Claws
One Marine with Thunder Hammer
and Storm Shield
Seven Marines with Storm Bolters and
Power Fists

This represents the most you will need at any
one point. For instance there are two separate
Lightning Claw armed marines, one a Trooper
the other a Sergeant. However they are never
in the same mission together so only one
model is needed.
Y
Four of the final five missions use two sets of
floor tile to make their maps. Should you only
have access to one set of tiles my suggestion is
to either cut the campaign short (not ideal) or
play the mission on a similarly themed map.
For example Meltdown can be played on the
Power Failure map with a little modification
(in fact they represent the same part of the
hulk, so one is an expanded view of the other).
Obviously some adjustments would need to be
made to the forces involved such as the
number of Marines and the number of blips
per turn or things could get very crowded very
fast which leads into...

Game Bal anc e
Im a busy guy - Ive created this campaign in
my spare time between working full time night
shifts. This has basically meant not a whole lot
of time for play testing. Fortunately Space
Hulk is a very forgiving game for that a
single jammed overwatch roll can spell failure
for the Marines. Similarly a good CP draw can
make the Genestealers day a bad one.
With that in mind I did attempt to keep things
as fair and challenging (for both sides), but if
you find a particular mission impossible I
wont be offended if you change things up to
keep the game balanced (or adjust to suit
miniature availability).

321
The Missions
The Mis s ion Tr ee
Each missions victory conditions mentions
which game to play next. This is determined
either by:
This campaign is written as a story driven one
each missions success or failure determines
the course of the campaign, and the objectives
change with it. Genestealer Victory (purple)
Draw (white)
Each mission has an introductory story, setting
the context for the game, and giving some idea
of the Marines situation.
Marine Victory (blue)
As per the Space Hulk rulebook consult the
victory conditions during each end phase to
determine if they have been met. Some
missions have a draw condition similar to a
victory, but with another clarifier.
This is followed by the briefing page which
lists the forces, their deployment, the games
special rules and victory conditions.
The last page of each mission is the map page,
which is fairly self explanatory.
Example: Mission III: Paranoid is a Marine
Victory if they kill the Magus, but a draw if the
Magus and Librarian are killed. The game
only ends once the Magus is killed, but if the
Librarian has been killed at this point the
Marines only score a draw.

Fal l en Comr ade



Squad Aramis was lost three days in the Hulk, but
deep scans have detected signs of life. Brother-
Techmarine Vincent, upon whom they were
depending to guide them to the control center of
the monstrous ship, is still alive. But for how
much longer?

Squad Lucius has been dispatched to recover
Brother Vincent and return him for debriefing.
Failing that, they are to purify him with flames,
along with any materials he may have gathered.


RULE SET

Fallen Comrade uses the rules from the basic
game.


OBJECTIVE

Squad Lucius is trying to recover Brother Vincent
and see him safely back to the fleet. The
Genestealers are trying to keep the Techmarine
alive until the arrival of the Patriarch for
interrogation.


FORCES
Space Marines:

Squad Lucius
1 Sergeant with storm bolter and power glove.
3 Marines with storm bolter and power glove.
1 Marine with heavy flamer and power glove.

Stealers:
One blip plus one blip arrives per turn as
reinforcements.


VICTORY

The Marine player wins if the living Techmarine
exits the board through the Marine Exit Area.
Flaming the room with the Techmarine in it results
in a tie. The Stealer player wins if the Techmarine
is killed in any other manner, or if he is on the
board when all other Marines are either killed or
have exited the board.




SPECIAL RULES
Techmarine: The Techmarine is unconscious, but
may be revived by any Marine moving next to him
and expending 2AP while the Techmarine is in it's
front space. The Techmarine remains prone and
may perform no action on the turn that he
awakened.

The Techmarine is normal Terminator armed with
a storm bolter and power glove. He has 4 APs per
turn and Command Points may be spent on his
normally after he has risen to his feet.

Prone: A Marine that is prone is at -1 to close
combat. If attacked and the result is a tie, he may
rise and face his attacker for no APs. A prone
Marine may expend 2 APs to rise and may be
placed with any facing.

The Last Wor d



Deep into the dark bowels of the foul ship
Sergeant Lucius had led his men. Through
twisted, dripping corridors they had returned with
their prize: the last log of the Hulk identified only
as Mysterious Rumblings. What mysteries would
the astropaths and techpriests wrest from the
ancient tome?

Suddenly their suits' sensors came alive. The
'Stealers had awakened and were coming to greet
their new guests. Lucius checked his magazine
as he prepared for their reception




RULE SET

The Last Word uses the rules from the basic
game.


OBJECTIVE

Squad Lucius is trying to break through the
Genestealer swarm and deliver the ship's log to
the fleet. The Genestealers are trying to prevent
recovery of the log.


FORCES
Space Marines:

Squad Lucius
1 Sergeant with storm bolter and power glove.
3 Marines with storm bolter and power glove.
1 Marine with heavy flamer and power glove.

Stealers:
One blip plus one blip arrives per turn as
reinforcements.


VICTORY

The Marine player wins if he carries the
undamaged log off of the board through the
Marine Exit Area. Removal of a damaged log
results in a tie. The Stealer player wins if the log is
not removed or is destroyed.




SPECIAL RULES
Ship's Log: The ship's log is a heavy, cybernetic
tome that automatically records all ship functions,
and well as allowing for entries by the ship's
captain.

Any Marine engaged in close combat will drop the
log. Picking up, passing or taking the log requires
1 AP. When passing the log roll 1D6. A result of
'1' indicates that the log has been dropped.

If the log is dropped roll 1D6. A result of '1'
indicates that the log has been damaged. A
subsequent damage result will destroy the log.

Ex t r ac t i on



Strange, mutant strains of Stealers have been
encountered deep within the bowels of the Hulk.
More information is required to assess the threat
level of these new organisms and Imperial
Xenobiologists have demanded samples of living
tissue.

CAT data indicates the possible location of active
Cryogenic Tanks that may contain relevant
genetic data. Squad Julius has been dispatched
to recover the material and return it safely.


RULE SET
Extraction uses the rules from the basic game and
the Deathwing expansion.


OBJECTIVE

Squad J ulius must recover genetic material from
the cryogenic tanks and excape through the
disposal chute into space. The Genestealers are
trying to destroy the Marines before they can
succeed.

FORCES
Space Marines:

Squad Julius
1 Sergeant with power sword and power glove.
1 Marine with lightning claws.
2 Marines with storm bolter and power glove.
1 Marine with either an assault cannon with one
reload and power glove or a heavy flamer with
no reloads and power glove.

Stealers:
Two blips plus two blips arrive per turn as
reinforcements.


VICTORY

The Marine player wins by successfully using the
Extractor on the cryotanks and then escaping with
the Extractor though the disposal chute. The
Stealer player wins if all Marines are killed or if the
Extractor or Cryogenic Tanks are destroyed.


SPECIAL RULES
Extractor: The Extractor is used to remove
genetic material from the cryogenic tanks and
cold-store it for return to the fleet. The Extractor
must be given to one marine at the start of the
game. To use it, the Marine must have a cryotank
in his front space and expend 4 AP. Passing,
taking or picking up the Extractor safely requires 1
AP. An Extractor struck by a heavy flamer
(decontamination does not count) will be
destroyed.

Console: The computer console controls the
cryoroom decontamination system, which can be
used to bombard the room with high-intensity
radiation. When activated, treat the room as
having been struck by a heavy flamer hit. The
cryotanks are shielded against radiation, but any
material in the Extractor will be rendered useless.

Cryogenic Tank: The cryotanks cannot be
attacked by either Marines or Stealers. Each of
the three tanks can only have material extracted
once, then the seal is broken and the material is
rendered useless. If the cryoroom is struck by a
heavy flamer hit roll 1D6. The entire cryotank
assembly is destroyed on a roll of '1'.

In the outskirts of the cold nothingness of Space, floats a lone
imperial dropship, a long, long way from its Mothership. Almost
out of fuel, the crew knows they are doomed, with the only
option to break through the massive black wall of steel and
meteor matter in front of them. The Space Hulk is now only a
few minutes ahead, as it slowly fills the entire view of the ships
navigating crew.
At the silent Marine deck, the speakers suddently fill the cold,
narrow corridors with a scrathy dark voice.
It is a transmission from the Chapters Grand Master himself:
Dear Children. Untill now this very side of the sin of damna-
tion has been entirely undiscovered, due to clusters of meteors,
and radar diffuculties in this section. But finaly a dropship
successfully arrived, and is ready to engage the Alien Space
Hulk.
We praise the Emperor and pray that he will harden Your spirits,
that you shall show no mercy for these rigid Beasts. We have no
knowledge of this part of the Space hulk, as it has yet not been
reached, due to several tries, leading only to lost ships and
personel. As you must all know, this mission is of great impor-
tance to us
Your Objective will be to infiltrate, and gain intelligence of these
sectors. If possible, locate coputer terminals, and download any
information available, and get it back for investigation.
Go with strength, die with dignity, and may our infinite trust in
the Emperor strike down the heretic foe!

ALIENS

When an Imperial survey team discovered the planet LV426 it was
deemed to be ripe for terraforming, and a small colony was established
to maintain the atmosphere processors. A few years later, a space hulk
materialised a short distance from the planet and, remaining undetected,
crash-landed upon the planets surface. The colonists were completely
unaware of the terrible fate that awaited them.

When all contact was lost with the colony no immediate action was
taken. After all, downed transmitters and warp storms were common
occurrences, and the Imperium had many more urgent obligations. A
few years later, a Blood Angels ship passing through the system
detected the wrecked hulk on the surface of LV426. Violent storms
raging on the planets surface rendered detailed scans impossible, and
no contact could be made with the colony. A small force was
assembled to investigate. The storms made teleporting a dangerous
option, so the Terminator squads were transported to the surface by a
Thunderhawk gunship.

Entering the colony, the Terminators detected the colonists personal
data transmitters and made their way towards the massed reading. As
they neared the colonists, large numbers of lifeforms were suddenly
detected converging upon their position, and without any warning a
purestrain Genestealer appeared to emerge from out of the wall itself.
After destroying the loathsome creature, the Terminators were ordered
to fall back. Once outside, they would be picked back up by the
Thunderhawk and the entire planet would be fusion-bombed from
space. It was the only way to be sure

DEPLOYMENT & FORCES
Space Marines:
The Space Marine player has one squad. It consists of one Sergeant armed with a power sword and storm bolter, three
Space Marines armed with a storm bolter and power fist and one Space Marine armed with an assault cannon and power
fist. The Space Marine player deploys on the squad on the starting squares shown on the map.
Genesteal ers:
The Genestealer player begins the mission with two blips, and receives two reinforcement blips per turn. Blips may enter
play at any entry area.

SPECIAL RULES
Bombs: In order to achieve their mission goals, the Space Marines must place and arm bombs in the rooms marked A, B
and C. In order to place and arm a bomb, a Space Marine must be standing in the room and expend a full four action
and/or command points.

VICTORY
Space Marines:
In order to win the mission, the Space Marine player must place bombs in all 3 rooms and have at least two Space
Marines leave the board via the marked exit point. If all 3 bombs are placed and armed but no Marines escape the board,
the mission can be considered a draw.
Genesteal ers:
The Genestealer player garners an outright win if he can kill all of the Space Marines before they have placed and armed
all three bombs. If the Genestealer player can prevent the Space Marine player from getting two Space Marines off the
board after he has armed all three bombs, he may still attain a drawn result.

Blips may enter play at any entry area.

SPECIAL RULES
Locked In: The Space Marine inside room A is locked in. He has done this himself by jamming the lock and reinforcing
the door. His storm bolter is out of ammo so he will not come out until another Space Marine spends 1AP opening the
door and throwing him some ammo for his storm bolter, then he may leave the room and move and fire as normal. The
Genestealers can not open the door by any means.

VICTORY
Space Marines: The Space Marine player wins if he succeeds in getting the Space Marine trapped in room A off the
board via the Space Marine entry area. When this happens the game ends and the Space Marines win immediately.
