I've seen one. Very pretty, and a close match for the old game in the way it plays.

I have seen and played the game in my local GW. It is great! they do a fine job mixing in old space hulk but now termies arn't compleatly useless in CC(Yea double lightning claws :) woot). the models are superb but they do have blood angle inography on them ( shame for the rest of us).

Yeah, Spacehulk was the game I started with, my old game got chucked years ago due to humungous wear! (Shame on me anyway). The new version looks AMAZING. I've got to be honest, I just received my copy, I'd recommend it to anyone! Had a load of problems with the ordering process though, they've sold out online and it's going to be a case of getting it whilst you can!

I was playing it last night at my local store, it is fun as. My favourite is sitting a terminator on overwatch and watching as he tears hallways of genestealers apart. Untill he jams his stormbolter...

Also, the guy with the thunder hammer and storm shield is nuts!

Space hulk is a great game, mostly because it is from a time before games had to be fair.
I say this because, having played some games aganst my friends at the local store, it's really hard to win with the marines.
And the is why I like the game.
EDIT:
And swamping those silly tincans with my overwhelming tide of genestealers :twisted:

Looks a bit pricey for me right now. Hopefully it won't be just a limited release, so I can get it at a later date when I have a bit more cash for luxuries.

Given how it seems to have '40k Background 101' in it, for all those people who would never go near a GW, I reckon it'll be in Argos catalogues come January ;)

Looks really nice. My mate Chris has one here, and it's pretty well done, with the game being fun, and all the models and stuff being gorgeous. If I can, I'll be getting one ASAP, so I can get playing with my family, and junk.

The new Space Hulk is a one time production. No Argos appearances. If you don't get it now all you'll have left is ebay.

I'll have mine monday.

I'm pretty excited, I love that game - I played 1st and 2nd edition - one of the best board games ever (well and Arkham Horror), now with that cool minis, can't wait!

Now I'm slowly convincing my wife to play SH, I did good job with AH, so...

They can say it all they want, I still don't believe it :P They're stupid if it is actually limited, or if they've limited production to end this year. There's such a gold mine here it isn't even funny.

GW has none left as of a few days ago, so the only place to get it now is at independent stockists or Ebay.

All official GW materials say this is, as stated a Limited Release, they accidently oversold on the web so had to cut back on the store allocations.

I'd grab one asap if you want one.

If some stores have some left they will soon be transfered to stores that dont so they wont last long.

Hikes! Today I got mine! Only mine! Just started unpacking, looks simply awesome!

First impressions: high quality although one pose non versatile miniatures, very thick excellent cardboard for corridors, doors and counters, beautifully painted - top quality stuff for a board game. Rules seems to be upgraded 1st ed ones, 12 missions [Yay]!

Termies are great but the genestealers were a bit disappointing to me. The poses are cool and everything but the models don't have that many details and 'cept for some cool poses don't have anything over normal boxed ones. Not to mention how many non-interchangable parts make exactly the same models.

The game itself is cool. It has as much in common with 40k as does Dawn of War (that is...outlook) and I never played the original Space Hulk so I can't compare it to anything, but most things in the game look pretty neat. The time limit only for the space marine player is great, the atmosphere endless genestealer hordes/blips create is awesome, the only thing that bothers me is what to do after you played all the missions. Several times. It takes quite some effort to figure out something new and there's no use playing just a general slaghter.

I know it's not nearly the same game so can't really compare them but from what I've tasted of Space Hulk, I still prefer Necromunda.

I just managed to get a copy of it. Building the models was perhaps the most stressful thing I've done model-wise - they were so nice I didn't want to mess it up.

I've had mine for a bit :) I understand why they made a Mission 13 sheet on the site for more things, but I am very bummed at all the expansions and inventions they no longer support. It was VERY fleshed out, and now it's simple "Marines vs. Aliens". Maybe if they make an expansion, we can get the Yautja in there?
