In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. That war has many faces; epic battalions wage endless conflict throughout entire star systems, mighty Titans stride the tortured landscapes of virus-ravaged worlds, and grand heroes set themselves on a stage no smaller than the galaxy itself.
But there are times when the tides of events in the Universe can turn on a much smaller stage. The blade in the dark. The forlorn last stand of a motivated, desperate few. The efficient and brutal business transpiring behind the closed doors of a dim Strategium. The hushed footfalls of a stealth team, as stifled and fleeting protests mark the only trace of its presence.
To be an individual in such times is to be one amongst uncounted billions, but there are moments when the quiet actions of just one soul can recalibrate the entire merciless Universe.
This is the story of those deeds
For some time, Special Operations: Killzone was the best and most widely-used Warhammer 40k Kill Team-style game supplement. Today, we are re-invigorating the love of this game by providing a set of the rules intended for use with 7th edition. Along those lines, we include as little in the way of direct copying from the Codexes as possible. For this reason, you’ll notice we do not provide stats or points costs for units or upgrades in this game with the exception of special ones we dreamt up for this supplement specifically. You will have to refer to your Codex for that information.
At the end of the day, this is just another way to play the game you love, which is the one thing that Games Workshop has told us they want us to do.
It is in this spirit that Killzone is being resurrected. Simply think of this game as a special way to build your lists and play your games of Warhammer 40,000. In cases where the rules in this book are silent, refer to your copy of Warhammer 40,000 The Rules or your army’s Codex.
