Games Workshop Brings Back Space Hulk

Check out the Games Workshop website for details of how to pre-order the 20th Anniversary re-release of Space Hulk. It is going to be a very limited edition (why? - probably to help keep the price high!)

A board game for two players containing "a 23-page Rulebook, a 47-page Mission book and 35 finely-detailed, plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 11 Space Marine Terminators, one Space Marine Terminator Librarian, 22 Genestealers, and one Broodlord. Also included are: 105 gaming counters, 24 corridors, 10 rooms, eight crossroads, eight T-junctions, six corner sections, four dead ends, four end pieces, 20 doors with plastic stands, one mission status display, and three plastic mission objectives, including: a dead Space Marine on throne, a Blood Angels artefact and a Cyber-Altered Task Unit. Plus a sand timer and five bone-coloured dice unique to this game."

If you are lacking a Sci-Fi board game you might want to take a look at Doom the Board Game by Fantasy Flight Games, which is currently very well priced for its massive content in comparison to this re-release. It can be played with two to four people and is always a real blast.

Much as I would love to get my hands on these miniatures to paint I do not think I will be splashing the cash this time, maybe I will be able to afford it at the 50th anniversary!
