Description Edit | History

A cooperative game where the players attempt to clean out an infestation of hostile aliens from a derelict spaceship. Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, players take on the roles of Space Marines pitted against hordes of Genestealers.

Players choose from six different combat teams, each consisting of two Space Marines with different abilities. Each player receives three Action cards for each of his combat teams. After all of the Space Marines have fallen into formation, prepare for the first wave of Genestealers.

Game play is quick and easy to learn. Each game is played over a series of rounds, broken up into phases. During the Choose Actions Phase, each player must secretly determine which of the following Action cards they wish to play on their Space Marines: Support, Attack, or Move + Activate. You can't pick the same Action card next round, so choose wisely.

Action resolution keeps all players involved while the overwhelming odds inspire them to work together to survive. The Action Resolution Phase consists of each player revealing and carrying out their chosen Action. The lowest number card goes first, which means Attacks are resolved after Supports. Support tokens enable Space Marines to re-roll, so make sure to cover your fellow Blood Angels.

The Genestealer Attack Phase happens after all the Actions have been resolved, so hopefully you thinned out the swarms since you have to roll higher than the number of Genestealers in the swarm to successfully defend. Finally, an Event card is drawn to spawn more alien adversaries. Once all the Genestealers have emerged from the darkness, its time to move forward, drawing a new location card. And then it's back into the fight!

5 Vertical dividers for core and all expansions
Teams that have icons on right upper corner are dividers for expansion teams. Also I recommend to laminate them for better quality dividers :) MAKE SURE TO PRINT IT ON A4 PAPER WITH LANDSCAPE AND ACTUAL SIZE SETTINGS. Hope you enjoy it: Paulius

25 Space Hulk Death Angel rules reformatted for easy reading
The rules booklet provided with Death Angel has rather small text on a brown cross-hatched background, making them difficult to read, so I cut and pasted the text from the official rules PDF, created a Word doc, then added a few key diagrams from the original. Submitted with permission from Fantasy Flight.

4 Space Hulk: Death Angel - team / location combinations and game log
I created 12 games using the base game and the 3 expansions (4 teams each game). These card combos are not meant to maximize team synergy or strength, but simply to play the game multiple times such that I get to play all Marine teams and locations in various combinations. Each game also has a game log to record the results. The print is a little small, but that is so each "card" will fit inside the original game box. Print is on 8.5x11 inch paper, and then cut each "card" from that. I guessed on the names of the team symbols. For example, Brother Claudio is on the "Claw" team.
