Below, you'll find a few guidelines that will help you generate these missions. Don't feel compelled to follow these ideas precisely – just use them as a launching point for your gaming fun.

Maps & Terrain
Though the old board maps from Space Hulk are fun, you don't have to stick with them. Just imagine a rusted out, Tyranid infested space ship and go from there. You'll want a lot of terrain to create close confines. Create several avenues to the objective, but make sure none of them make a bee line there. Offer many areas for Genestealer entry so the Tyranid player has plenty of options. Just keep in mind how far the Terminators have to move to get to the objective area – too far and the Genestealers will be able to pick them off at leisure, too close and the Tyranids won't have a chance.

Forces
This aspect is the tricky part. In the Kill Team rules, on average, the brutes get 202 points to spend on squads to the Kill Team's 160. That ratio reflects the fact that the Kill Team is always outnumbered during its dangerous missions. With the Space Hulk modifications in this article, the Terminator Kill Team is even more outnumbered. Based on the penalties from the Kill Team rules, a standard Terminator Squad breaks one immutable law and gives the brute player a lot of extra points to spend on a boss. However, the regular Space Hulk game didn't have any bosses in the regular missions, so it didn't make sense for the Tyranids to have one in the two missions in this article. Instead, we make up for that by adding even more Genestealers to the missions! Check out the chart below to see how we translated the standard Termagant brute squads into Genestealers.

Terminator Kill Team Roster
1 Terminator Sergeant with storm bolter and power weapon, 4 Terminators with storm bolters and power fists 1 Terminator Sergeant with storm bolter and power weapon, 1 Terminator with heavy flamer and power fist, and 3 Terminators with storm bolters and power fists 1 Terminator Sergeant with storm bolter and power weapon, 1 Terminator with heavy flamer and power fist, 1 Terminator with assault cannon and power fist (breaks a second immutable law), and 2 Terminators with storm bolters and power fists

We needed the Genestealers rather than Termagants (the normal Tyranid brutes) to make this more like Space Hulk – plus, the Termagants wouldn't have much of a chance against Terminator armour. With a little math, we figured out the equivalent number of Genestealers. If you want to play games with two Kill Teams, just double the number of brute squads from the chart above. If you just want to play a regular game of Kill Team between Terminators and Genestealers, then all you need is the chart above. Bringing in the Space Hulk blips left us with another problem: how do you translate Kill Team brute
