Anyone here like Space Hulk?

20 posts in this topic

The next Deathwatch book has been announced. And, for fans of Space Hulk, it's a particular treat - a trilogy of adventures set aboard a Space Hulk in the Jericho Reach, accompanied by a Space Hulk Scenario Generator (written by myself).

I'm biased, of course, but I think that the whole thing is pretty damned cool.

Ok, I do have to say that I'm jealous of this. I would have loved to have been part of this book. The Mortis Thule is the first thing we used for our first Deathwatch games when we were play-testing The Achilus Assault, and it's one aspect of the DW setting that I love. I can't wait for this thing to arrive!

 Hmm. Don't Space Hulks generally tear apart anything less than a squad of Terminators? I'm sure this'll be fun, but it may run lethal if done right.

Could be a higher rank game?

Space Hulks are a nightmare for Terminators as well. First time our KT stepped into the Mortis Thule we found ourselves fighting a Carnifex within minutes!

Of course I will buy it.  That and The outer reach, The Navis Primer, The Tome of Blood, Only War, Relic, and the Starwars Card game.  As well as any game I can put on my Android. 

I justify this by saying that increasing profits for FFG will increase GDP and help the economic recovery.

I do the same thing. Holy crap, I am excited for this. I love Space Hulk; I love Deathwatch. Perfect blend.

The Mortis Thule was one of the first things that really grabbed me when I was browsing through Achilus Assault.  It makes me so excited to see everyone else thought so as well.

I'm honestly just happy to see a book anouncement thread where there's no bitching and complaining, and general trollish behavior. :)

 

And of course, there's the awesomeness of getting a book about Space Hulks! Damnit FFG, you keep finding new ways to get my money.

Since we are on the topic, any possibility of seeing a Death Angel App for Iphone or android?  Heck, a Deathwatch App would be great.  Otherwise, I will be forced to learn how to play Templar Assault.

 I was lucky enough to pick up Space Hulk and a few add ons for free a few years back, i used to referee it for my son and nephew we all loved it.

As a fan and player of Deathwatch, (long term Black Templar Assault Marine) I can't wait for the new scenario book to come out.

I don't buy "adventure books" ever, between the price tags and the imaginarium inside my head, I stay away.

But something as iconic to the universe as a Space Hulk would be totally worth the buy, also the statblocks for things that could be used elsewhere add to the value for me. 

Are genestealers already documented in the books?  I only have the Core Rulebook and Errata right now and I haven't made it past the armoury chapter.

 I wish I still had the time and imagination I had when I was younger, nowadays I can't wait for adventures to be published.

Source books are ok, but i prefer the adventures. I find I can more easily adapt and add to an adventure plot than make up an entire scenario.

I become very self critical when writing, I wish i had the ability to 'wing it' as some of my peers do.

I'm have a similar mindset with published adventures - I prefer to come up with my own adventures - but I still buy them all. I view them, weirdly, as a MTG player might view a stack of booster packs: a chance to get new things to add to the game. In this case I mean new adversary profiles, and the first thing I do with an adventure book is flip to the NPC's & Adversaries section to see what we 'get' with this book.

Genestealers (and a lot of Tyranid units) are located in Mark of the Xenos. All the Tyranid units that weren't covered in Mark of the Xenos are covered in The Jericho Reach.
