Ever since Ken B was killed in that horrible tractor accident there's been a shortage of front page news at the Fort. This announcement is perhaps overdue, although pre-orders are still available so that depends on your point of view. Regardless its better late than never so without further ado;
SPACE HULK IS BACK, BABY!!!
September 5, 2009 is a day that should be marked on the Ameritrash calendar as the day one of the classics came back to us. The game is being released in a new edition that incorporates rules from 1st edition and expansions. For those who have been under a rock for the past twenty years, Space Hulk is primarily a 2 player game where a unit of Space Marines faces off against the alien Genestealers on a derelict spaceship. The new edition looks quite lavishly produced in pictures and while there is speculation of when/if Games Workshop will print it again I'll note that the previous editions were released in 1989 and 1996 so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a release after this one. The GW website, several online retailers, and many local game stores are still accepting pre-orders for this.
