Space Hulk's first edition was what introduced me to the hobby, it's an amazing game. Haven't played the newest incarnation yet, though I may pop by the local GW for a run since they have it set up in store. The video game is literally juuuust like the board game, if you have Steam on your computer it's definitely worth checking out.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I love it... Love the board game, love the video game... Love the models... Love the backstory/atmosphere...
Just... Love... It...
I really want my own, but I can't afford 75
Trying to get me some of the termies though for HQs, priests and sergeants...
Hopefully the release brought the prices down, I should check

EDIT: Nope, prices remain as high as ever 75 for all of them bargain! other wise I would have to walk into my local gw and pick up a full box for that

........
Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

Quite gorgeous models, I agree. It would be nice if GW could do Terminator box upgrades for chapters. The newest Deathwing (and Space Wolves, too) box looks amazing, it would be nice to see that level of detail show up for other chapters.

...though I guess we do have Death Company and Sanguinary Guard. Just seems like even through Forgeworld there's still more Terminator bling for other chapters than ours. Not to mention how terrible I would feel about cutting apart those nice Space Hulk models to give them all Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields. Who uses Stormbolters anymore?

I use stormbolters

Though, true, I hardly ever play terminators competitively

I love the set, personally. I had some money saved so I just went for it - completely worth it, even for the models alone, and the game is tons of fun.
