Man versus alien in desperate battle.

Stop Press!

It's not even halfway through the week and the webstore has already sold out of Space Hulk. We did tell you it would be popular! Fortunately, there will be plenty of copies in Games Workshop stores and many independent retailers on Saturday, so make sure you're there early to get your hands on one.

Space hulks are huge floating junkyards in space, a mish-mash of abandoned spaceships cruelly hammered together by Warp phenomena. Though occasionally empty, many space hulks are inhabited by aliens, who use them to travel across the stars, going wherever the space hulk’s many engines take it. Of all the foes to inhabit a space hulk, it’s the Genestealers that pose the greatest threat to humanity.

This boxed game contains everything you need to play Space Hulk, including dozens of card floor tiles to represent the cramped corridors of the space hulk, bulkhead doors (for Genestealers to hide behind and Terminators to blast off their hinges), counters, markers, objectives and plenty more besides. Most importantly, it also contains a host of Citadel Miniatures including 12 Blood Angels Terminators, 22 Tyranid Genestealers and a Broodlord.

The 12 Blood Angels are all characters in their own right, each of them with a unique model. They all have their own heraldry and background in the Space Hulk Mission book.

Lexicanium Calistarius, for example, has joined the Blood Angels of the 1st Company aboard the space hulk Sin of Damnation, his mental fortitude and devastating psychic powers a valuable asset to the mission.

The Genestealers are all dynamically posed, leaping over industrial equipment, crawling down the walls or hunched over piles of skulls and torn-open armour. The one bursting from the floor is a team favourite.

The Genestealers are led by a Broodlord, a terrifying xenos monstrosity that stands atop a pile of skulls. Watch out for his appearance in missions XV and XVI. Our advice: don’t get too close to him… The Genestealers are led by a Broodlord, a terrifying xenos monstrosity that stands atop a pile of skulls. Watch out for his appearance in missions XV and XVI.
