The Cult is described in the in-game background as an infiltration force that weakens a target planet, by infecting the local population and causing civil unrest, in advance of the arrival of the main Tyranid hive fleet. Space Marine Terminators are described in game lore as first company veterans in each Space Marine Chapter, having earned the right to don the sacred Tactical Dreadnought Armor or Terminator Armor. Space Marine Terminators were originally only used in Space Hulk-type scenarios and not the open battlefield, but rules were added in White Dwarf magazine and subsequent releases of Warhammer 40, and Epic for their deployment in conventional battles.
Most Warhammer 40, army list game rules restrict the deployment of Terminators to a small part squads of 5 men each of a player's Space Marine army since they are considered elite troops. The Dark Angels can field a Deathwing army which features an all-Terminator force, along with including Land Raider tanks as transports and Dreadnought walkers for support.
Gameplay[ edit ] The game is set on a modular board made up of various board sections which represent corridors and rooms and which can be freely arranged and locked together like a jigsaw puzzle to represent the interior of a space hulk. One player controls the Space Marine Terminators, and the other player controls the Tyranid Genestealers. It is an asymmetric game.
First, in that the two players have different forces to begin with. Second, in that the two players may have different objectives to fulfill during a "mission" the in-game term for a particular scenario of the game.
The Terminator player may have the objective of destroying a specified area of the board or a specified Genestealer piece or some other objective; and the Genestealer player may have the objective of destroying a specified Terminator piece or all of the Terminator pieces or some other objective. Third, in that the pieces of the two players move differently.
Space Hulk (Third/Fourth Edition)
The Terminator pieces move slowly; the Genestealer pieces move quickly. Fourth, in that with regard to combat, the Terminator pieces excel at ranged combat, but they are weak in close combat; the Genestealer pieces excel at close combat, but they cannot perform ranged combat at all.
The pieces are moved by the players through a system of "action points", where each piece has a certain amount specified for it.
A Terminator piece has few action points; a Genestealer piece has many action points. The game is notable for its hidden play mechanics, from which it derives much of its playability and tension.

On the one hand, the Terminator player has a variable number of "command points" available each turn which are only revealed to the Genestealer player after they are used up; these command points may be used to move the Terminator pieces either during the Terminator player's own turn or during the Genestealer player's turn.
In the second edition, the extra points were not hidden from the Genestealer player. On the other hand, the actual number of Genestealer pieces in play is hidden from the Terminator player, because the Genestealer pieces come into play as "blips" which can represent: creatures in the Deathwing expansion and in the Genestealer expansion in the 1st edition; creatures in the 2nd edition; creatures in the 3rd edition; and creatures in the 4th edition.
For the most part, we just modified the things that didn't make sense to us. As if we have any experience fighting aliens in deep space. That didn't stop us from making changes to the game so it played the way we felt it should. It's been a long road to get to this point. We started out using the basic rules with no modifications.
After a few games playing like this, we found certain situations would keep coming up that just didn't seem right to us. Where the existing rules just didn't capture the in-game effect we wanted.
We decided to start making small adjustments here and there to the rules to capture the in-game effect and feeling we wanted. Adding something here, removing something there Sometimes we looked to other games for inspiration and solutions, sometimes we just went with our intuition. After every change, we'd play a number of missions to test it out.
Basically trying to "break" it by putting it through as many different situations as possible. We wanted to make sure a small change here did not create an unanticipated impact over there.
The butterfly effect as it's known. If need be, we'd stop a game and work through the problems until we had a workable solution and then start playing again. After enough games, the new "rule" was adopted and used from that point on. For each rule, this process varied in length.
Fortunately, my friend feels the same way. What have we changed? I want to say it's not much, but when I printed it all out, it looked like a good bit more It's only three pages with lots of white space.

However, these additions were not carried over in the second or the third or the fourth editions, although the third and the fourth editions did include rules for a Broodlord.
The other faction is composed of a Space Marine Terminator squad, who enter these hulks to recover long lost technology and pretty much kill everything they see. If you use Librarians in your games, download the psychic rules here.
The butterfly effect as it's known. Why they send terminators is beyond our understanding, because Termies: Are armed mostly with stormbolters, don't pack nearly enough firepower to deal with most threats and certainly not enough ammo to purge an entire hulk.
Google "Space Hulk Bible". We took a hard look at the ones we were no longer using and got rid of those. I'm one of those that'll cut my own.
