The deadly, close-quarters combat of Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game is about to become even more dangerous. The Death Angel Tyranid Enemy Pack, a Print on Demand expansion for Death Angel, is now available through our webstore! This exciting release joins Mission Pack 1 and Space Marine Pack 1 in the library of POD expansions with which to enhance your Death Angel experience.

The Death Angel Tyranid Enemy Pack includes two additions: a new deck of enemy cards to replace the standard Genestealer deck, and a new Location card type. The Tyranid deck contains a variety of enemies to challenge even the most seasoned Space Marines, while the Hive Lord Location cards introduce the Tyranid’s epic and deadly overlords!

What is Print on Demand?

Print on Demand is an exciting process that allows Fantasy Flight Games to produce professionally finished cards on a made-to-order basis, which opens up new opportunities for expanding existing games.

This process (not to be confused with Print and Play), results in smaller print runs of professionally manufactured products, allowing publishers to provide fans with content that would otherwise not be commercially viable. If you’re a retailer interested in carrying our Print on Demand products, visit our Professional Zone website to learn more.

A word from the developer

For more the Death Angel Tyranid Enemy Pack, here’s a word from the expansion’s designer, Brady Sadler:

The Death Angel card game does two things extremely well: it creates memorable moments of panicked strategy, and it racks up the Space Marine body count. When developing ideas for this expansion, I decided to build on both of these aspects, so players could challenge themselves in new ways.

Even Death Angel veterans will find themselves on unfamiliar ground with the Tyranid Pack. Not only is the new enemy deck chocked full of Tyranid baddies, but many of them are Elite Tyranids, equipped with deadly special abilities that trigger at different points within the turn sequence. The unpredictable nature of these enemies makes it even harder to coordinate your strategies, creating tenser moments as you make your way to the final location.

Speaking of final locations, the new Hive Lord cards in the Tyranid Pack offer an even greater challenge for the bravest combat teams. Rather than facing a deadly location, players will go up against a mighty Tyranid overlord, creating a thrilling boss fight for anyone able to survive long enough to experience it.

As mentioned earlier, these new Death Angel additions are the perfect way for seasoned Space Marines to test their mettle against a brand new threat. We’ll see you in the space hulk, and good luck—you’re gonna need it!

Thanks, Brady! Head to our webstore now to order your copy, then prepare to face an even greater challenge in the dark void of space.

Note: Due to variations in printing, cards from Print on Demand expansions will be subtly different in appearance and texture from base game cards.

Space Hulk: Death Angel - The Card Game is a cooperative card game for 1-6 players. Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, players take on the roles of Space Marines pitted against the increasing hordes of Genestealers.

I'm so happy this coming out. More ways to get killed! Yay! The next expansion I want to see is a full replacement deck for the event cards. That would go a long way towards keeping the game as replayable as possible.

I don't if GW would be good with it, but a Space Hulk Death Angel app would be sweet.

I love the cost and quality of POD.
