This is just one of those vague half baked ideas that come to people now and then, usually they're nothing, but occasionally something good comes of one. I was looking at the objectives and just had an idea for objectives that are used against specific factions only, and generally kept secret till the game ends. written in a sealed envelope, for example.

Some ideas i had was one where you have to have a certain character kill a space marine in close combat and survive to the end of the game, the objective was collecting a gene sample from his or even a progenoid to learn about the marines current genetic status. Might be good against primaris.

If fighting ig you might have one where you not only destroy a tank but place a special demolition charge on it to utterly destroy it so there can't be any fuel. armor or parts salvaged thus having more effect on the guards long term tank forces. Or kill a specific character like a commissar who is notably good at keeping troops in line in some really gruesome way, like with a character of your own.

Against nids you might have some collect genetic data objectives. Nids might have an infect enemy forces one somehow.

Basically a list of each faction and maybe 3 objectives to achieve against them that are recorded secretly.

Yeah, some of you will love it, some will hate it and maybe a few will discuss it. Let the dice roll and see what happens.

I think hidden objectives like this are perfect for crusade or other narrative games. Crusade currently revolves around agendas and I see no reason they couldn't be hidden or also be based on the opponent's army. Achieving agendas in crusade gives you additional requisition or experience to but more units or upgrade existing units and buy relics but you could also play around with other effects. Assassination of a commissar for example could force a failure on the recovery roll so that the model has to gain battle scars or be 'retired'.

No. We already have a problem where the secondary availability results in a force imbalance, the last thing we need are faction-targeted secondaries to add to that.

Objectives should be balanced and symmetric, that is to say that all parties should have equal potential before the mission, and they should look mostly the same to both sides.

Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!
