Space Hulk

One of the GW games I have always wanted to play is Space Hulk. This is a classic game of man v.s. alien, with 5-10 Space Marines in Terminator Armor against unending hordes of Genestealers, a xenos breed clearly inspired by the Aliens films.

This game is being re-released as a 20th anniversary edition as reported here on Bell of Lost Souls. This new edition has 35 miniatures (11 Marines, the rest Genestealers), plastic objectives, two books, and piles and piles of lovely cardstock. Unfortunately it is both limited edition and $99. S0 I probably will not be able to get it. Maybe for the 30th anniversary in 2019.

In other news, still working on the house, so not much work on miniatures has occurred. I have rearranged the modeling space to better accommodate our changed situation, so I should be able to get some models built soon, and painting will resume as soon as this current project is finished. Updates and pictures as they occur.
