Space Hulks (Yay or Nay)

Postby ToraxOutlaw » 27 January 2016, 14:34

I've recently started reading as well as playing Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion and it got me thinking about Battlefleet Gothic Armada. I would love to see space hulks as a thing in-game. Your fleet would/could be navigating from planet-to-planet/system-to-system and you'd you'd come across a Space Hulk of varying shapes and/or sizes. If they implemented these in-game you could either destroy it or board it for rare/special loot or tech for ships in your fleet or as a bonus for the whole fleet.

What would be your opinion on this guys??? Yay or nay for Space Hulks???

they could be implemented in much the same way as they are in Dawn of War 2: as optional missions which allow you to gain more special equipment or items.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the discussion. See, space hulks would provide a bit more for a fleet to do if the nearest enemy is a couple of systems away and a space hulk warps in to existence in the same system or a few planets away. I would like many other forumites opinions on this.

I will admit I've never played the BFG board-game, (want to get into it with the re-release coming from GW soon) but I do play the Rogue Trader RPG a lot. I love starship combat and how it all works and I personally am of the opinion that Space Hulks are an intrinsic part of 40k.

Regarding implementation, you could have random Space Hulks passing into the battlefield and there could be side missions to deal with/ investigate Space Hulks. At the very least, you should be able to make Space Hulks (or at least the start of them) by wrecking your opponent's ships (if their Warp or Plasma drives don't explode).

There is no reason that they can't be a side mission or such.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

Well, there are good chances for it in my opinion, since there are rules for it in the board game and it would add sorta "flagship" to the ork faction just like the planet killer for chaos.

Sending boarding parties on a space hulk would be awesome. It would had the extra element of surprise if one appeared smack-bang in the middle of an all-out battle with the enemy. For example, everyone would be more interested in claiming the space hulk for their own than fighting to the death to claim eternal glory. The Imperial Navy and Space Marine Fleet would just continue to pound away at the enemy until victory was assured then go after the space hulk.

That's just my theory anyway of one particular battle. I still wanna hear more suggestions and theories from the rest of the fans as well as forumites on whether we should get space hulks.

I would say yes.
