Space Hulk Recap

The illuminating John McLintock wrote a two-part article about the old Games Workshop board game Space Hulk. As I read it, the memories flooded back.

I haven’t played Space Hulk in years. I don’t even have a copy lying around any more. But I loved that game.

While at the GW Design Studio, I worked on Deathwing and Genestealer, the two supplements for the first edition of the game. These were some of my first professional credits. I found out later that Genestealer won the Origins Award for the Best Science-Fiction/Fantasy Board Game of 1990, which makes it my first major award-winner too.

John’s comments on the game are spot on. If you’re interested in one of the most elegant miniatures/board games around, check them out.

Edit: John’s up to three parts on the article now. Be sure to read them all.

  1. Next time your in the San Antonio area look me up and I will gladly play a few games of Space Hulk with you. It is one of my top 5 favorites, even more so since one of the teens in my Games Ministry painted all the figures.

    If coming down just to hang out with me isn’t enough excuse, we do have a convention coming up:
