I have created over the last decade several different things I been working on for Space Crusade, and Space Hulk. I almost lost it all when my hard drive failed, and I don't want to take that chance again. I want people to be able to enjoy the stuff I created. I've got new rules, new cards, new reference cards, new blips, new 3d furniture and machinery, board tiles, and I dono what else. some stuff is based on other stuff, mostly from the warhammer 40k universe (new and old additions) , other things i just came up with out of the blue or from other fiction.
The basic idea behind this is I love the simplicity of space crusade, and I love the content and models of warhammer 40k but i don't have time to teach everyone I want to play with 4000 pages worth of rules, and some of the time Id like to play with kids to get them interested in the warhammer universe. Space Crusade, and Space Hulk help with that. Space Crusade is easy enough to add in more rules, and allow for bigger boards, OR even use a table top with a green cloth like warhammer 40k by using inches instead of "tiles" and weapon ranges can be added easily.
Anyways I'll try to make it all fit in one post. if not I'll just link it all here with URLs.
Due to a hard drive crash and imageshack getting greedy, I recently lost all of the stuff uploaded. However! Captin Kabeered had managed to download the entire collection, and kind enough to upload, and host the whole package for us on the mediafire account.
Complete Custom Advance Space Crusade, and Space Hulk Collection
I have also added a new "clean" version of the walls with the new openings for the dreadnaught doors at the bottom of the other walls. I should be able to make the dreadnaught doors themselves soon.
Below are the first set of new doors for the new Space Crusade walls that I made, including the door for the large Dreadnaught openings.
Here are some walls for Space Crusade. Some have Larger Doorways for dreadnaughts and some are a "clean" version for use in missions on board space marine cruisers and the like. The two normal space crusade walls have had the yellow caution border removed in preparation for using that as framework to make a set of open doors for space crusade.
PRINTABLE 3D FURNITURE, COMPUTERS AND MACHINERY
This is a collection of graphics i've gotten over the years that started out as floor tiles, that I have made into 3d furniture. Im a big fan of Heroquest and the 3d look of everything, so I wanted to bring that to the Space Crusade feel as well. I dont know who the original author is of the tiles that I used so if you know the artwork, please let me know and I'll add a link to the site here.
***NOTE Credit for the Carnifax blips belongs to cyber333, I shrank them down to fit on my sized blip sheets and redrew the lines on it. I hope thats ok. The rest I pretty much either drew free hand, or cut out an actual pic of a tyranid and filled it in with black.
Note I'll Edit this post as I get time to get everything uploaded.
I got most of the Tyranid Blips uploaded. Now I just got to create blips for the swarm lord, brood lord, Rreavers, Zoanthropes, and winged hive tyrant. I dont actually own a Zoanthrope yet myself BUT I'm going to make them a set of 4 to 6 psychic power cards similar to that of my librarian cards so they will be kinda fun. The cards will be useable by any of the psychic Tyranid but the Zoans will prob be able to use all of them in one game, where the others will only be able to use one or two.

**NOTE The markers and equipment have new counters that I made based on the ones from Space Hulk. They can be used to help the players determine which of their marines has fired or attacked with each of their weapons, and theres also counters and wound tokens for my new wound chart for the Apothacary. Theres also a few "data cards" I made using each of the chapters colors that I use. These can be used on missions where you are sent in to collect data from a computer inside a hulk.
There are certain conditions where unique rules should be applied, such as a scout hiding in the shadows, or a space marine hiding in a building waiting for the right time to strike a tank that is passing by. Here is where you can find these rules.
Taking Cover. This basically means your guy is hid behind something. We have four classes of cover: Fortified being the best, Dug in being next best, Partially Hidden, and Light Cover. When being shot at this gives you a slight advantage over being out in the open. When hits are rolled, for Fortified subtract 3 points from the total, From Dig in subtract 2, and for Partially Hidden subtract 1. Human sized creatures do not get any benefit from Light Cover. Except for Lictors. Monstrous Creatures like Carnifexes and Tyranid Warriors do not gain any benefit from cover unless the cover is actually big enough to hid them and they do not tower above it, which is not usually the case. Keep in mind you still need a line of sight on the target to fire at it. If the Monster is hiding behind a building for example you couldn't shoot at it at all. Fortified cover is buildings, bunkers, and pillboxes. This includes anything where there is a small window which you can be shot at through and is solid with a roof. Dug in is basically hiding in trenches, behind rubble ruined walls/buildings and open topped gun pits. Partially behind is behind crates/barrels pipes/logs/trees/jungle/woods, smoke and anything not designed to provide good cover. Light Cover is bushes, tall grass, brambles, and any rocks or anything that is shorter then the waist of the unit attempting to hide in it. Demolisher Cannons, Auto-cannons, Missile Launchers, Grenades, and Las-Cannons or any blast type weapon may attempt to destroy a building if they target it. A building that is not a heavy fort such as a clay and mud building has an Armor Value of 4. Fortifications like pillboxes and bunkers have an AV of 5. If a building is destroyed and there are units inside, for EACH, unit inside roll a heavy dice and a light dice for damage. For every level up they are add a +1 to the damage received. For this damage they do not get the benefit of being in cover since the cover has been destroyed. One level or floor is about 2" up, so if a unit is on the third floor they would receive +2 damage to the dice roll if the building is destroyed. Any unit that is attacked in Hand-to-Hand combat does NOT gain any bonus from hiding in cover. Cover only applies to units that are fired at using ranged weapons. This includes Extra Small Units, and Lictors.
Extra Small Units, such as Ripper Swarms and Servo-skulls get an extra +1 bonus to each category of cover and are also hidden in Light Cover. Their category are Light cover -1, Partially Hidden -2, Dug in -3, and Fortified -4. NOTE: This is the bonus these two units get and do not get an Extra +1 bonus for also being scouts while in cover.
Lictors are the stuff of nightmares. Even though they are huge monsters they can hide anywhere due to their color changing scales. That makes it extremely difficult to hit one even in the open. Any attack made against a Lictor that is not Hand-to-hand combat receives -2 to the damage rolled, NOT including any terrain bonuses it should receive. Their cover bonuses for when they are not in Melee combat are: Open Ground -2, Light cover -3, Partially Hidden -4, Dug in -5, and Fortified -6. Although they follow the scout rules as well, when considering cover use this profile.
Difficult terrain. Any obstetrical that gets in your way and slows you down is considered difficult terrain. This includes marshes, brambles, jungles, rivers and streams, fences, and rubble. When entering difficult terrain, divide the remaining Movement Allowance by half. Any distance moved within the difficult terrain must use 2 movement per inch. Basically this means it takes twice as much effort to move through it as it does through normal terrain. Some Cover still can be considered difficult terrain such as jungle, rubble and ruined buildings if you choose to enter it or cross over it instead of going around. It also applies to ladders and stairs for changing floors on multistory buildings. If you want to get to the top of something, and you do not have enough MA to get there, write down how far up your model should be, and place it at the bottom of the stairs. Any unit that tries to go into hand-to-hand combat with this unit should also need to climb the stairs. NOTE: Anything that touches the ground except for all Tyranid Creatures, and moves that tries to cross the difficult terrain suffers this penalty including walkers, and tanks, but flying, and jump pack units do not. Tyranid creatures are super agile and bound, leap, and claw their way with ease. Scouts are also not effected by terrain.
Scout. Scouts are skilled warriors and masters of the terrain. Except for Extra Small creatures and Lictors, when a scout moves into cover, they get an extra +1 Bonus while being in cover. So when an attack is made on a unit that is hidden in cover the roll gets the following subtracted from the rolls: Partially Hidden -2, Dugin -3, and Fortified -4. Scouts also are not effected by Difficult Terrain. They are deleterious enough and athletic enough to run or swim through such places with great ease and are not slowed down by heavy armor. A scout unit can choose to dig himself in and hide in cover to set up ambushes. To do this the scout must not preform any actions during his turn. When they want to hide, once per turn roll a D6. On the roll of a 5 or a 6 they are considered hidden. If the scout has camo netting equipped, to hide all they have to roll is a 4 or higher. Units that are hidden may not be targeted for any attacks since you can not see them. The only exception to this is IF they are near a unit that is NOT hid, and the unhidden unit is targeted with a Demolisher cannon blast and they are within the blast zone and would normally receive damage. The hidden units remain hid until they preform any action, or are revealed by a hunter unit such as any unit with a bionic eye, or the space wolves winter wolf, when they are searching for hidden objects. Snipers who have camo netting equipped have the unique ability to remain hidden while they shoot. To see if you are still hidden after you have shot, preform the hide action and roll a D6. On the roll of 4 or higher you are considered hidden still. If it is 3 or lower the enemy units have detected the sniper and may fire at him on their turn. On your next turn you may again attempt to hide but only if you do not shoot, or move.
Except for Winter Wolves, all other Scouts are skilled enough in programing to hack into the programs that control doors on Space Hulks they may do this by rolling a D6 once per turn. On the roll of a 5 or a 6, they may shut and lock a door, or open a door that was locked. Once they are inside a room they may shut and lock the door and they are considered hidden. They do NOT need to re-roll to unlock the door. Once they control a door they have complete control of that door until the end of the mission or it is destroyed. Keep in mind however a locked door can still be blasted with psychic energy, or destroyed with a proper hit. This would again reveal the scout hidden within. Any unit who had a clear field of vision at the scout when he entered the room and closed the door would have known he was in that room and may choose to do just that.
Winter Wolves can not control any door of any kind. The doors must be opened with someone with actual hands, or servo-claws.
Hunter Rules. Hunters are used to find hidden obstacles. Any unit with a Bionic eye, may use this skill including Apothacaries. Once per turn roll a D6. On the roll of 5 or 6 any hidden mines, traps or scouts within 6 inches or squares of the hunter will be revealed. Lictors have this ability and need to only roll a 4 or higher.
Use this chart to determine a Marines injury during missions that an Apothacary acompanys the squad. On missions where he does not go with the squad, all injurys are fatal. Only the skilled advanced medical practices of the Apothacary can save the Marines in time. Using the healing ability counts as a shooting action, however movement is still acceptable. The Apothacary can only heal one wound on commanders, and can not repair his personal shield. If any Marine suffers two Severe wounds during a mission it becomes a Critical Wound. Any Marines who survive the mission, and those who have been taken back to the Docking Shuttle or Drop Pod who suffer from Critical Wounds can be used again in the next mission as fully healed Marines. The medical experts can repair damaged tissue or severed limbs with Bionics and have them fully combat ready before the next assignment. The Apothacary has two whole turns to attempt to get to an injured Marine. He can either attempt to treat the Marine there by rolling the D20 and applying the result, or Move the Marine to a safer location to treat the Marine. Once the Apothacary has arrived at the injured Marine, he must apply the treatment with in the next 2 turns or the Marine will die. For example, the Marine is injured, the Apothacary uses the action part of the first turn healing another previously injured Marine, then uses the movement action to move in the direction of the newly injured Marine, but does not quite make it there. On his next turn he gets to the Marine with a few moves left, and moves him further away from the battle. Note picking up the injured Marine to move him does not count as an action so it does not end his movement phase. On the next turn he again moves the Marine, and once more on the final turn, and then finally applies the treatment. a 16 is rolled. Its a good thing hes far enough away from combat, the Marine has been nearly crippled by the attack. The Marine suffered a Severe leg wound and can only move a quarter of his normal movement allowance. He is a heavy weapons Marine that moves only 4 spaces, This means he can now only move 1 per turn! The injured Marine decides to limp on back to the shuttle to live to fight another day since hes already close by. If an injury requires more then one turn to properly heal, the turn which the Apothacary applied the treatment counts as the first turn to the healing process. The treated Marine may then preform any actions he is still able to preform on that turn. Any marine may move an disabled marine that is conscious but incapable of movement, or unconscious, or Injured but not treated yet by the Apothacary.

***NOTE the wound chart came from a very old version of warhammer 40k using an old issue of white dwarf and a few other ideas from myself.
Thz. Its been a LONG process. Anyone here remember the old Advanced space crusade/Tyranid Attack stuff? I've got some game boards to create a hive ship that can be used in the format like space crusade with out the interlocking puzzle peices. I used actual screen shots of the boards to make them, but I didn't have all the screen shots to make all the boards so I created a few rooms of my own. i also got some cards and markers for the ship orgins too. There not exactly like what came with advanced space crusade cause honestly I never had that game, so I don't know what each one said. if someone wants to help me on that, Im needing the text that is on the "Dermal Sphincter" card. and if anyone could describe which each piece is exactly that would be helpful too. With the exception of that one card, ive got everything I need ready to print out to have a complete copy of Advanced Space Crusade. I made all the tokens, and counters and even the cards myself.
WICKED! lol All i had for rules for Advanced space crusade/Tyranid Attack was just a text doccument with the rules in it. I been looking for this stuff forever. Thanks Jax and Mortis! Oh man its gona be fun for me to go back and correct the cards and edit them to Space Crusade (not advanced) standards, but well worth it. I'll do that after I get my points for each unit issue dealt with.
Just an Update I added the Blips With Warhammer 40k Points to the list of Tyranid stuff in the first post.
The points aren't Exactly like 40k but there close I got different reasons for adjusting points on some of them. My Rippers for example are all on single small individual bases not a base of 5 or so of them. I still got a few more blips I need to make, Reavers, and all the Bio Titans. I dont actually own any models for any of them so they havem't been a huge priority to make blips of them for myself lol.
New Update. Tyranid Psychic power cards have been uploaded. I used the word "Alien" in the cards instead of Tyranids or the names of the psychics who where intended to use each power so any alien you choose can use these powers if you wish. I did still use terms like hive mind and such, but hell who knows maybe orcs are infected with the geenstealer virus and are under the control of the tyranid hive mind.
So ... much stuff ... can't ... keep up .... acting going ... all ... Shatner ...
In all seriousness, keep it coming dude

Makes sense, the general excuse used in Advanced Space Crusade for all the different races appearing on the same ship is that they are Tyranid 'Mind Slaves'
Reminds me in fact, I never did get around to posting my Alien Psyker rules
NOTE Mortis, I used your gargoyle and Carnifax blips, I shrank them down to fit on my sized blip sheets and redrew the lines on it. I hope thats ok. The rest I pretty much either drew free hand, or cut out an actual pic of a tyranid and filled it in with black.
I don't think you did - I've never produced any Blips for Gargoyles and my Carnifex blip is based on the classic Screamer-Killer miniature rather than the newer 'Giant Flea with guns' model. It looks like you might have used my Termagant blips though - in any case you are welcome to use any of my Blips in your works as long as you give credit
~The ravings of a single mad Goblin is bad enough, but such a power-hungry, malice-filled creature as Mortis can never hope to be understood~
Ok ya think your right. I found the originals I used to make the carnifex and the gargoyle for my blips collection. they where made by someone named cyber333. Im almost positive I had already made the blips for the gaunts before I got online to search for space crusade content. when I made them I was going through a long period with out internet so I had (obviously) a LOT of time on my hands lol. We did prob use the same pic of the gaunts to make the blip though lol cyber333 also has one almost identical to ours lol
is there any way I could get Hi DEF versions sent to me (with the gold trim of the doors still intact if possible) I'm trying to photoshop some clean walls but I don't have a scanner and want to get them in the best quality possible
