Space Hulk Mission - Suicide Run
Hello my good friends. As you may have noticed, the Grey Knight and Khorne Daemon rules have gone live. I present to you the mission that the first round of playtesting was performed in. It's a favourite of ours here at Space Hulk Missions. You may recognise the map layout. This is, essentially, Suicide Mission +. For those of you wanting to try out the new Grey Knights and Daemons rules, this is the first mission for doing so. It is not part of the Blood in the Stars campaign (those missions are a lot more original and, sadly for you, a lot harder.) Give it a try. There are several ways to play this mission, the first of which is detailed below. For an even harder game, try playing Blood Angels vs. Daemons, using the Librarian, Sergeant with power sword and storm bolter, Terminator with heavy flamer and power fist and 2 Terminators with storm bolters and power fists, making the rooms destroyable either through the use of the cleansing heavy flamer or the Librarian making use of the Psychic Conduit rule (normal terminators can not be used as conduits.) For a much easier game, use this squad against genestealers without the Warp Rift rules in play.
Grey Knights vs. Daemons
FORCES & DEPLOYMENT
Grey Knights: The Grey Knight player has one squad. It consists of a Justicar armed with a storm bolter and nemesis daemon hammer, one Grey Knight armed with a storm bolter and nemesis force falchions, one Grey Knight armed with a storm bolter and nemesis force halberd, one grey knight armed with a storm bolter and nemesis force sword and one grey knight armed with a psilencer and a nemesis force sword. The Grey Knight player deploys the squad on the starting squares shown on the map.
Khorne Daemons: The Khorne Daemon player begins the mission with two blips, and receives two reinforcement blips per turn. Blips may enter play at any entry area.
Psychic Conduits: In this mission, the Grey Knight mission is to disperse the building warp energy in the two rooms marked X. Any Grey Knight model must end his movement inside one of the two rooms and use any and all of his remaining AP and 2 psi-points to do so. Once a Grey Knight model has done this, he may not use CP to make any more actions for this turn. He is too exhausted by the ordeal to follow any orders.
Grey Knights: The Grey Knight player wins by dispersing the building warp energy in the two rooms marked X. When this goal is achieved, the game ends and the Grey Knights win immediately.
Khorne Daemons: The Khorne Daemon player wins if any one of the following events occur; a) The last remaining Grey Knight is killed. b) The psi-point tracker is covered in such a way that 2 psi-points can not be gathered to disperse the warp energy in the rooms. c) The Warp Rift tracker reaches 10.
