Killzone: news, reviews and updates



Newsflash!

Adepticon wants to enter the Killzone!

Since the cat is outta the bag and I don't wanna be scooped on news about my own creation; Killzone will be at Adepticon next year.

B.smoove of the A Gentleman's Ones blog and I were going to keep this under wraps a while longer. Waiting to break the news when we got the official errata's done and the rules update on the 7th of September, the guys at Adepticon want to start building buzz now and buzz we shall.



B.smoove will be running a Killzone event at Adepticon 2011, I will do my best to be there at his side. I cannot thank enough B.smoove for getting Killzone this recognition!

We are both very excited about this proposal so expect us to do something special in the near future.

More news as the event develops.

Looks like I have to go to Adepticon for sure.



Killzone gets its first Review


Atrotos of the Rules Manufactorum reviewed Killzone yesterday. Even though the rules are still in development it received a very favorable review. Follow the link and see what he had to say, and let him know what you think.


I must say, I am shocked and excited how well the Killzone rules have been accepted. I am truly humbled by all the support and accolades that I have received in the short time we have been working on this project.


Killzone Development Update


First off I would like to thank all the members of the Killzone Rules Committee. Without you guys I would still be very early on identifying issues in the Codex Errata. Thanks a lot!

We have gone over all of the rules additions that are part of the basic rules, made some tweaks and amended them for the official playtest PDF.

Karitas of Excommunicate Traitors fame made a great new Logo and wrote a new preamble/introduction for the rules.


“In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war; but war has many faces. Epic battalions wage endless conflict throughout star systems, grand heroes set themselves on the stage of the universe; mighty titans stride across virus ravaged worlds.

But sometimes, the universe turns on a smaller stage.

The blade in the dark, the brave last stand of the chosen few, the quiet work of closed doors and darkened strategiums.

To be a man in such times is to be one among uncounted billions, but sometimes, one man can make a difference.”


Special Operations Killzone is a set of fan created rules for creating and playing skirmish games within the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

It is intended as a supplemental way to play the game, and as such a set of Games Workshop’s core rules and Codices for any armies used is essential to understand and play this ruleset.

Players will choose an elite team and undertake vital actions set against the stage of wider conflict. This ruleset aims to enable cinematic play in the style of tier one assets of a universe at war.

More great stuff to come, stay tuned!
