Space Hulk Battle Report

We’re on an express elevator to hell, going down!

Peter and Will play the Games Workshop classic Space Hulk.

It can’t be denied that a fully painted set of Space Hulk is a sight to behold, and I don’t know why I waited so long to finish mine—perhaps because painting a pile of genestealers is a pain in the neck! The Terminators are pretty insanely detailed too, and very time-consuming to paint. But now that it’s all done, it’s a great pleasure to finally play this game the way it was intended to be played—in all its visual glory!

Space Hulk still manages to have a tense, nail-biting atmosphere that all other Games Workshop games lack. There really is something terrifying about being the Terminator player in those claustrophobic spaceship corridors and having to face the endless hordes of claws and teeth.

Hope you enjoy the game!
