Yes, love the old game! I've seen the pre-release copy and it's a beauty. The mini's are single cast plastics scaled the same as the current Terminators, though the Genestealers look a little small next to their 40K counterparts. All have the base as an interigal part of the casting, and several have terrain elements cast in as well. The corridor sections have likewise been updated and are very pretty.

Quick perusal of the rules has them very much like the old ones, though I haven't had a chance to actually play yet. The biggest quibble I have is it's grossly over-priced at 100 USD. 60-65 I could see.

When it comes to GW expect nothing less than high prices for hunks of crafted plastic that looks pretty.

Oh yes, i am still an addict all these years after it was first published, many, many years ago.

It is IMHO probably the best and only game worth buying from the GW portfolio.

The rules are simplicity itself, and you don't keep needing a million and one expensive add on figures.

I think GW if they have republished it, will charge an arm and leg, with a hip thrown in as price tag. †It won't be cheap Sad pitty as it's a brilliant simple game, that you can get up and running after 10 mins.

Edit:-
P.S Just checked it's only £59 in the uk..... not bad i have to admit, well under what i expected GW to charge.  I still paid £20 for it 20 years ago, with not as much in it.
I just hope they haven't altered the rules too much.

Some of my friends are picking it up for $99 from my FLGS.  I'd play with them anyway so I can save the $99 plus 6.25% tax.

I got my copy last week (being a former GW HQ employee who still keeps in touch with the powers that be Very Happy )  its almost the exact same game as 1st edition, with the only real addition being that Marines can now guard which lets them reroll close combat dice.  The new models are awesome and technically worth over $120 by themselves so the price is what you make.

Absolute classic game though.

Since you have the inside line perhaps you'll know the answer to this question. How many copies were made? Everyone's saying this was an extremely limited print run but that doesn't make a bunch of sense to me. For a game like this to break even you'd have to make a fairly decent number of copies. And I can't believe GW doesn't think there is NO demand for this game. It's been a classic for longer than many classics have been in print and is consistently in the top of lists of game people would love to see reprinted.

I got my copy in the mail. The box weighs a ton! The minis are very nice. I'm actually surprised it's only $100, considering there's 12 marines and 23 genestealers. They charge $50 for five flippin terminator models for the 40K game! It is a bit pricey though, I'll admit. But given the thickness of the corridor tiles and counters, I think I'll have the game for a quite while.

Space marines can guard now. It works similar to overwatch, costing 2 action points. It allows the marine to reroll a close combat when close assaulted. Also, LOS rules have changed a bit. There seem to be some other slight changes, but I haven't played since middle school, so I'm not sure. I'm playing later today with a guy who's more familiar witht he rules, so I'll post any changes he notices as well.

Question for those who have the game. I read that you have to paint the minis.

1. Did you paint the minis? If so how long did it take you?

2. Is the paint included?

3. Does the corridors need to be painted?

You don't have to paint the minis to play the game. The different units on each side are distinct enough that you can tell them apart fairly easily. The Space Marines are red plastic and the Genestealers are grayish plastic. No paint is included. The corridors are thick cardstock and do not need painting.

Thanks. I'm interested in picking this up, but the idea of painting a bunch of minis was holding me back. I'll check it out at my FLGS.

I've never painted mine and it is always good fun to play Space Hulk, it never fails to remind me of "the scene" in Aliens. Cool

But i have friends who did and it looked way better!
