Torn on this. It is not cheap, but the 10 Terminators + Librarian on their own outside the box would be over $100. Add in the genestealers, broodlord, and tiles, and it is probably a bargain, under the GW price world (which ahs no basis in reality, IMO).

 

Yes, a price point of $60 would have made me happy, as I could get it then, but from GW, it is kind of a deal.

We were discussing this on the 40k thread. I was so looking forward to this, until I read that GW is making this a limited edition, single print run.

 

I will not buy into a limited edition.

 

Right now I can get people to play Space Hulk, using the old sets I have, however, the fact that they can't buy their own means they rarely stay excited about playing it. The limited edition changes that only for the short time it's around, then we're back to the same boat.

But Space Hulk has always had serious replay value and its never really required anything beyond the basic game even though there were two expansions for the original game. One of the few GW games I would consider and I'm on the list at the FLGS but odds are not good of getting one despite the store ordering 30 copies.

Want to say I got my copy TODAY!

 

1). box is HEAVY.

 

2). This has to be one of the nicest looking boardgames I've ever seen. Nicer than Arkham Horror FREX (IMHO)

 

3). Marines are the same size as the regular Terminators. Genestealers the same for that matter...

 

4). After taking stuff out to fondle, I couldn't get the lid back on! ::D:

 

5). Well worth the $100 pricetag IMHO.

I was pretty impressed with it when I got to see the store's advanced copy last week. Very nice, will look good with the rest of my collection of Space Hulks.

 

So did you see if the boards were compatiable with the old ones? They wouldn't let me open that shrinkwrapped part of the packaging in the store.

No idea, since I haven't had a chance to compare to the old version. Word on the street though is that it is, save the new pieces are thicker.

 

I may be able to try it out on Friday depending on whose house I go to game at and whether my friend with 1e wants to dig out his box.
