The new ones can be seen on GW website (and current WD if you buy that rag) they're lightyears beyond the old ones, which were static one piece molds.

Thank god for Squadron putty! I was able to just add a some putty to the body and force one of the head on. I started off assembling the space marines by looking at the box. Their are 8 marines on the box, but their are actually 12 of them. Usually they are in three parts, a body (with legs and one arm), an arm and a head. The body has holes in them and the head and arm have a pin that slides into the hole. I was trying to match the pieces based on the pictures on the box. Their are also numbers on the sprues to help you. But I managed to screw them up anyways. I really don't like the way the minis are in the sprues, you have to cut the pieces out, they are connected by thin piece of plastic. And sometimes the pin (that you need to put in the holes) was connected to the thin piece of plastic. I mistakenly cut the pin once. I don't know why they weren't one solid piece. It would have been easier that way.

The aliens went much smoother. A few of them are one piece, just have to cut them out. Everything is assembled now. Just have to punch out the counters and read the rules/play a dry run.

General, it sounds like you know how to have a good time  Cool . The Burgundy sounds nice. I've read the rules once, and I'm now reading the scenarios. I'm hoping to play the first scenario as a solo game to get a feel for it.

I'm potentially planning to play the game with a friend sometime this upcoming week.  For those of you who have played the game before I was wondering what is a fun and balanced mission to play.

Thanks

Scenario 3 is a good challenge to start.
See how you fare on this one. Rolling Eyes

Probably not.  Games Workshop keeps a tight hold on their products.  Online retailers cannot even list GW products with prices.

Wouldn't be that hard to make your own maps and use a dice roller.

Thanks for the scenario suggestion.  Gave it a play today with three players.  Jesse_James as the Genestealers and two other players playing a Marine Squad each.  I ended up GM the thing.  

For the 1st three turns we forgo the timer because everyone was learning.  Afterwards the timer was in play.  The game was pretty much a killing for the Genestealers.  Good game Jesse_James.

I think the players playing the Marines didn't fully realize the usefulness of overwatch.  Also, I wasn't fully sure of the game plan they had to get the CAT across.  Though one of the players did secure the exit way then went away from the strategy.  In all I think it was a decent first game to get a feel of the game.

Got chance to play some more Space Hulk today.  We played 2 vs 2 with the Decoy and Cleanse and Burn scenario.  Both times the marines kicked booty in a major way (switched sides).  Overwatch was just deadly and the Marine Thor on Guard massacre a bunch of Genestealers in one game.  I hear the game really favors the Genestealers, but after these games it seems like this may not be the case.  

Also, there are some questions brought up on Space Hulk.  Does anyone know of a site for FAQ and Q&A for some clarifications.

Thanks
