PostSubject: Space Hulk - Questions & Answers   Mon 31 Aug 2009 - 14:15

My Space Hulk arrived today (actually last week, but I was at work when they tried to deliver it). If anyone is still wondering whether or not to buy it and has any questions or wants photo of specific pieces let me know and I'll be happy to provide.

- This product is GW's foray into using foriegn manufacturing (China). Some parts made in the UK, some in China with Chinese assembly.
- The models need some assembly, but aren't customizable. Less so than even the AoBR models.
- The sculpts are excellent and mould lines are minimal. The plastic used different than the grey plastic normally used and is much more brittle. I had one piece that broke off the sprue and one that cracked pretty badly in shipping.
- The box is super heavy as the tiles are very thick (thicker than most board game boards?) and there is a lot of them.

I haven't opened up a lot of the packaging yet (as I am really only interested in the models), but I will gladly open whatever anyone wants to see.

I think it's really brittle and breaks easily. After I opened the box and a genestealter foot fell right out of it, I am even afraid to knock them over.

Aren't these the first plastics that GW had produced in China?

Could be a reason. But actually, I thought they had the tiles made in china and the miniatures in the UK.

Yeah, it's just something that came to mind. I don't know really. You probably simply had bad luck. I don't think GW has their usual awesome return policy when it comes to the Space Hulk sprues..?

Eli, I had exactly the same problem.. I also had a broken off Genestealer claw, dunno from what Genestealer it was, but I will soon find out when I have assembled everything.. Razz

Nothing a simple pin with some glue can't fix though! Wink

Wow, that's racial discrimination, first Mordheimer is only showing pics of the Space Marines, and then we are all complaining about the Genestealers falling apart Suspect

i got my box too and whilst assembling the commander (please forgive me my noobness as i dont have the manual here) one of the drapes broke off.. and the claws of the clawdude was also slightly dented.. o well. my opinion is they went a little tooooo far with the very very small details with the material used.

The plastic is definately different. Positively, absolutely different.

1st... I'm a Nid player. The fact that we have TWO 3-armed Genestealers in every box makes me mad. 2nd... about the pics of only Space Marines, sorry!

Regards the plastic... yes, it is VERY brittle. Less than resin, more than regular plastic. Be careful with the 'drapes' and iconography... you give it the evil eye and it will break off!
