Space Marine Promotions

Required: tokens representing selected promotion to place on space marine cards (see: http://boardgamegeek.com/image/1639999/space-hulk-death-ange... for an example).

Each round a marine kills any number of genestealers, he places one of the cards underneath his character card to represent 1 experience point (1 XP).

When he achieves 5 XP he can choose one of the following promotion tokens:

1.Unending Support: +1 extra support token during support action
2.Fortified Defence: +1 on defence die total
3.Power shot: +2 extra genestealers killed with each successful attack
4.Lightning Reactions: immediately turn to face any attacking genestealers
5.Inspiring Aura: +1 range, also affects adjacent space marines
6.Force Field: forgo an action in return for immunity to attack
7.Fighting Frenzy: Free attack each turn regardless of selected action
8.Self-Sacrifice: self-destruct to annihilate all present genestealers

You might want to think about widening this to a campaign rules set...
Great one, will try it for sure!

OK, do you know how long this usually takes?

When I played it, only one marine managed a promotion and he died in the final room, so it certainly doesn't make it too easy. Perhaps inserting a couple more rooms will allow one or two more marines to achieve promotions and/or make it that bit tougher.

Potentially make it d3 experience points to allow quicker progression. Combined with more locations so it isn't made too easy?

A good suggestion. However, I think the fact that it takes a while to achieve a promotion makes it all the more valuable and you have to really plan how to achieve this more quickly and protect him along the way.

Nice idea!

You should give (or sell) this idea to FFG so they can make a 5th POD expansion!
Must be do-able with not too much extra cards and tokens I guess...

Thanks, it would only involve one set of tokens and a reference card (I'm waiting for them to approve one of my photos so I can show people!). I think it would go well with the Space Marine Pack 1, which only comes with two teams and is therefore a bit over-priced.
