I’ve been spending far too much time making this epic-scale space hulk recently - finally finished as far as I can be bothered to go. None of it is perfect (the box was a bit of an after-thought made of bits of wood & board that I had kicking about), but it should hopefully do the job!
All the bits (board sections, minis, tokens, doors, box lids..) are magnetic and so stay in place, so you can leave it set up, take it to a beer garden in the summer, pack up mid game to finish later etc.
I even found a use for the useless ‘Space Hulk’ bit of card that you get in the original boxed game ?
It is a present for a mate who had his copy thrown away by some evil daemon, so I will leave him the minis to paint.

Thanks

i now have electronic versions of a lot of 1st ed space hulk stuff (including the expansions and most of the missions released in WD) in case anyone is interested. I'm planning on painting up models for my normal sized copy in the hope of getting some games at the club at some point.

Great job - but damn it must be fiddly!

I only have the most recent edition of Space Hulk now but I did have some minis from first ed back in the day. Those Terminators with TV aerials and interchangeable weapons - horrible minis to paint.

Funny how the genestealer models though are still quite current looking!

It's not as fiddly as you'd think.

Horrible minis full stop but I don't reckon they' too bad to paint. I hope not anyway as I have about 25 to do). I can confirm that they are horrific to convert - ive been cutting off / sticking various different arms on to mine. The plastic is super hard and super dense.

I think don't think that the rules are much different now as to 1st ed so if you are interested in the old WDs just let me know.

Painted minis now too (didn't trust myself to attempt blood angel symbols on shoulder pads)

Look at the little genestealers! Nicely done, and sensible to stop short of tiny markings...
