For those who do not know, Space Hulk is an OLD board game made by GW, first released in 1989. It is about Space Marines in Terminator Armor exploring derelict ships (Space Hulks) that are infested with 'aliens'... which eventually became Tyranid Genestealers. The board is composed by 'tiles', which player put in randomly as the 'explore' the Space Hulk; this makes for a 100% re-playable game. Very simplistic, yet intricate.

GW NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT - Space Hulk: First Contact






I was mentioning to DaBank yesterday... it is funny that they are re-releasing Space Hulk on Death Squads 1st Anniversary! As you know, all this started when DaBank and I got together to TRY and play some Space Hulk and started changing the rules. Laughing Interestingly enough, one of the incoming sections on Death Squads is the 'Fighting in Close Quarters' module, which basically allows players to use tiles to simulate corridors or underground caves, using Warhammer Quest and Space Hulk concepts.

I will pre-order (and pay) my copy at my local store, 2D10 Games, today... and so will DaBank. I hope I do not get stuck playing Space Hulk instead of working on Death Squads' stuff! The models are superb (I'm also a Tyranid player) so I will be exited to work on them after we finish working on TLRB and Mike-loposis.

Yea, the initial word on the street was that you could only purchase from a GW store and since there is not a GW within a 10 hour radius I was inquiring with fellow forumites who might be in a tigher proximity radius to a GW than I who could or would purchase said release for me providing I pay them accordingly.

I got to look at an open copy of Space Hulk today. Man, those models are sweet! The broodlord is massive! I think I may have to shell out the £60 after all...

Pretty sure all the GWs have an open copy for enticing customers. You aren't allowed to play it but you can flick through the rulebook and handle the figures.
