Coming soon S.O. Killzone: Forlorn Hope

We are in the middle of making a players versus a GM style supplement for S.O. Killzone. I have been playtesting it myself and have had good success and am about ready to send it out to others to playtest.

 I have decided to call the supplement Forlorn Hope it is an old military term that was made popular during the Napoleonic wars.

Forlorn Hope: A forlorn hope is a band of soldiers or other combatants chosen to take the leading part in a military operation, such as an assault on a defended position, where the risk of casualties is high. 

This supplement is meant to pit teams of special operations groups into desperate fights versus the likes of a Daemonic incursion, Tyranid invasion or even a Zombie apocalypse. Your teams will work together to accomplish mission goals and hopefully survive while doing so.

This supplement works best with 2-3 players with one player acting as the game master running the adversary creatures.

This supplement will also give you the opportunity to play single player games of Killzone by utilizing a random creature generation dice and card mechanic in conjunction with random creature movement system. For those times that you or your buddies don't have a game master handy or just all want to play as the good guys.

I am very excited about this supplement it has been tons of fun to play so far, so plenty of great stuff in the future for Killzone!


  1. This sounds friggin' awesome! :D I can't wait to see it!

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun mate, looking forward to giving it a go.

  3. Outstanding idea! I can't wait to try it out.

    Thanks for all the brilliant gameplay (and the monumental effort you and your cohorts sink in to these projects to make that magic happen)!

  4. So how are you choosing your play-testers? ;)

  5. I think I would play this every day!

  6. Hi I know this thread is old but...did you ever release Forlorn Hope?

    My brother and I have just started up playing 40k after a long time out of the hobby (around 15 years). We love SO Killzone and Forlorn Hope would be the icing on the cake ;)
