Blood Angels Terminator vs Genestealer in a Space Hulk
Many Space Hulks are known to be breeding grounds for the Tyranid species known to the Imperium as the Genestealers, often being the product of a starship inflicted with a Genestealer infestation where the Genestealers took over and killed the crew. It is even suspected by the Adeptus Mechanicus' Magi that the Tyranid Hive Mind implants Genestealers to lay in stasis on Space Hulks to purposely serve as unwitting living vanguards for a nearby Tyranid Hive Fleet intent on finding new worlds to consume. Congruent with the expansive bio-mass consumption of the Tyranids, these Genestealer-infested Space Hulks are doubly dangerous for the cargo they may contain and the Hive Fleets they could psychically call down upon an inhabited planet.
As a result of the dangers, the mission of boarding and exploring Space Hulks is normally entrusted to Terminators, an Astartes Chapter's most experienced elite warriors who are heavily armed and protected by Tactical Dreadnought Armour. In some cases this is an impossible task, due to powerful enemy resistance, too few available Imperial troops, the Space Hulk being too close to vital Imperial star systems, etc. In such cases the bombardment and total destruction of the Hulk is the only viable alternative. However, Space Hulks are huge and durable, and even Nova Cannon blasts are not always powerful enough to destroy one.
I am totally determined to give a #SpaceHulk touch to the Imperialis Sector, it can give a very different atmosphere to the #KillTeam games, and it will make the battles at home fun!
By the way, next week you will probably have the first interview for #ORKTOBER month 💚
