  1. Ah well, that saves me some money :] Was hoping for some more significant changes to make it worth buying in addition to the last version.

    Still, good for people who don't want to pay daft eBay prices!

  2. didnt get one last time round due to lack of money, and probably won't get one this time, just because while itd be nice to have, i doubt ill have many chances to play it, which also means ill probably not have the motivation to get it painted either. ah well

    1. I just bought it and stuck the models in round bases to use normally

  3. Don't play Blood Angels but I always wanted Space Hulk for the special models. The ebay prices are insane, so I welcome the opportunity to get a box.

    1. I don't play BA but I do play salamanders. Hoping to convert them

  4. Great for those who want to expand their current space hulk set, get stuck in for the first time, or frankly just want a ton of models for cheap compared to regular prices.

    Personally, my group hardly plays it as is despite several of us having the game, but I might grab one simply for the unique genestealers and cool BA termies.

    1. Well I doubt it's worth GW investing in board game production facilities...

    2. Where do you see limited run. Not that I doubt it is, but the only place I see that is from the rumor.

      Delete
    3. Admittedly past behaviour is no guide these days but GW has been pretty consistent in making anything Specialist Games related a limited run since, well, the last time Space Hulk came around. Probably best to assume limited run even if it turns out to be an ongoing prospect just to avoid disappointment.

      Delete
    4. Limited, never? again, while stock lasts?
      Yeah its the same thing....Again!

      To be reprinted when GW needs some cash injection!

      Delete
    5. LOL And?

      GW: "We want money."
      People: "We will pay for Space Hulk but don't want eBay prices!"

      Obvious conclusion.

      Delete
    6. Then what's the point of it being limited edition? Its not limited if they keep releasing it - each run is devalued by all the ones preceding it.

      Delete
    7. It's not a limited edition and never was. It's produced in limited numbers, apart from that there's nothing special about it.

      World Of Warcraft has limited editions. Codices have limited editions. They're marked as for collectors. Space Hulk was a limited run and now GW are doing another limited run. It's as simple as that lol

      Delete
    8. So you say everything is limited????
      Even Glue & Paint?
      Wow... I'm rich! :)

      I think the point is that limited is used as a way to push up the price more so than actually Limiting something. Its a trick to force a sale and customers dont like that, if they find out it was only that.

      I see no point in calling everything limited if they reprint it at will.
      Warcraft had limited "collectors" Edition they provide extra Content so Its diffrent to Dexes with a diffrent Cover that cost double but have no added Content. Or a game that is a 1 Version product.

  6. So who knows what time the pre orders go up in uk time? I don't want to miss out on this as I've just started a genestealer collection and already have a termie squad I've been looking to expand!

    1. Generally about 7pm in the UK. The Reading store has a games night so people can come in and get the pre-orders "live" as it were.

      Delete
    2. Thanks James, is that's 7pm on Friday evening?

      Delete
    3. Retailers have no limits as to how many they can get and have to order in batches of 5, so there should be heaps around

      Delete
  7. Was interested until I read "limited run." No point getting excited for something that'll be gone 2 hours after it goes on sale.

    1. If everyone felt that way, it wouldn't sell out 2 hours after release.

      Delete
    2. But they don't and it will. I can't afford Space Hulk until my next payday in a week, pity the limited run will be sold out by then.

      Delete
    3. Well there will probably be a reprint in 5 years. ;)

      Delete
    4. any time that GW feel they can reel in new players or their existing sales from current consumers is failing to make a mark in positive returns then they'll rehash this game. why? because it has space marines in it.

      Delete
  8. Would be nice if they would offer the additional content separately as well for those who already do have the original 2009 Edition. Meh. Not worth the expense otherwise since I got one last time.

    1. Cross fingers for a datasheet, which is probably not unlikely, or even one of two of them published in White Dwarf like the Nagash/Settra scenario.

      Delete
    2. Or wait an hour after release and it will be online somewhere.

      Delete
    3. Its likely just the extra Books & WD content from back then.
      You can find that on the Internet. For Free. Its just Missions!

      Delete
  9. No brainer, buying it. Some of the best models there are.

    1. 100,- € for 2 boxes of Termis with no weapon Option & some stealers worst model in the game. Not unless you want to play the game.

      Delete
    2. No weapons options? They have one with a heavy flamer, one with an assault cannon, one with lightning claws, one with a storm shield and thunder hammer, one with a power sword and a handful of regulars. It makes a great starting set with amazing iconography and poses.

      Delete
    3. i believe Shemp you are right the Terminators are great. but personally i prefer MPPK.....call it as conversion madness.....:) i sold my lot of SH termi's for same number of MPPK termi's. but the ones in the box [SH] are really nice to paint, also they are some of the best posed termi's out there that are "snap/easy fit" with only DV making even better only recently. good value if you live in certain country's where stuff is super expensive.....er i mean enjoyable.....:)

      Delete
    4. The Blood Angel terminator models are some of the best plastics I've ever clapped eyes on.

      Even the 'Stealers look great. Only people who don't have the game could argue otherwise.

      Delete
    5. I dont think BAs can mix an match CC & range weapons.
      The point is for about that i can get 15 TH/SS Termis wich i can magnetize for LC. So i get something thats very playable even for a beginner.
      I dont see Why you would pick Bad Option/units even as a starter?
      I would say that DV.and other.Box were better deals.
      This Box is only for people that want to play SH or that dont mind paying Premium for nice snapfit models.

      Delete
    6. This set allows you to take a good mix of normal terminators and even a nice looking assault terminator. In the current (and much outdated) BA codex, the Blood Angels can field 2 types of terminators. This permits you to field some very nice regular terminators. Additionally it also gives you a very good looking librarian in terminator armor. For those lore junkies, that librarian becomes Mephiston.

      Delete
    7. Heaven forbid that people would buy it just to get some of the best models GW have ever made in plastic.

      That can't be true...

      Delete
  10. Aaaand this is how once again I end up consider starting both Blood Angels and Tyranids.

  11. What time do pre orders go like on the east coast in the US? Any idea? Of course I leave for vacation that afternoon..

    1. Good thing there is rumors and leaks. Or els you would find out after Its to late.
      The GW Video was not frank on limited or price.

      Maybe they should Start preorders sooner?

      Delete
  12. I wonder if I can use space hulk rules on my zone mortalis board?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Are the terminators the same size as the ones currently being released or the smaller ones like the metal minis?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wish they'd release those models in a Sanctus Reach type starter as well.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Really wish we would see some non SM entries to the SH game, just for variety.

    1. Mob of Boyz vs Brood of Genestealers would be awesome!

    2. I'm having flashbacks to "The Emperor's Finest"!

    3. Well it would be with whatever would make sence for SH, but I think it could be done nicely.

    4. The old Space Hulk Campaigns book had rules for Chaos terminators (and Imperial Marines and their various weapons like frags, melta and whatnot).

  16. Yay....Space Hulk....yay.....don't care.

  17. Hopefully not 150 for Canada. Seems to keep going up for us.

  18. Cool. I guess. I sold one set, gave another away, got another then gave that away. Not sure if I should get this new one or not.

  19. It is a shame there is no mention of an upgrade pack for current owners of the 2009 limited edition.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I do not understand the bitterness towards limited editions though. It is common practice in many collectable markets.

    1. last time people missed out. this time people will miss out. not to mention it drains on resources better spent on their main game universes. or the alternative is for GW to try and please everyone and re-release the other SG's. some cannot see the value in more marines in a market over saturated with them. nor is SH really a game that bridges the main systems, it is a ltd etd "Easter Egg" might as well brought back dreadfleet......~shrugs~ many reasons, all valid, though like always people will either want it or not, and some will likely miss out due to spending on the last shiny model.

      Delete
    2. I'd argue that most of the reasons aren't valid at all, especially the second time around:

      Aside from the in-house production of the models, it's a cash outlay for GW to get their 3rd party to print up all the other stuff for SH so a drain on resources is next to nothing. The game's already developed, there's no dev time needed.

      People always miss out, it's not GW's problem. They produce as much as economical for them, they put pre-orders up, everyone has more or less the same chance to get on and order it, especially with a heads-up from a rumour site. Lock yourself in a toilet with your phone, take the day/night off, if people want it enough they'll make the time.

      It will cost people less than it does on eBay.

      Dreadfleet didn't sell well at all. Space Hulk sold out before release.

      There's only one type of person who should be bitterly moaning about this release and those are the gits who buy limited releases only to flog them for a profit. Let them moan.

      Delete
    3. Limited implies that there is some extra worth or "go up in value after Time" worth.
      There is not!

      Not for all the Books. You just Pay more. And for miniatures the limited label also does little for resell value.

      So ofc people find out later that there limited stuff is not so Spezial after all and then they feel anger. Ontop the limited stuff was, in this case not so limited. EBay prices will drop now. People dont like that. After all some want their models to keep the same value or higher. Since it is am expensiv Hobby after all.
      For non-collectors the miniatures are worth pennys only. It is plastic figures after all.

      Delete
    4. Again, it might be a limited run but GW has not said this. The only person that is currently stating that it is limited is the person posting the rumor. Now that there is a video it is not really a rumor anymore. It may very well be unlimited.

      Delete
    5. It's not a limited edition and never was. It's a limited run. A limited edition implies that there's something special in it that the standard edition doesn't have. Like Dark Vengeance did. SH is not a limited edition.

      Delete
    6. Well it was limited run.
      But they reprinted it.

      If in 2 months they sell the Terminator only for 1/3 of the price you might also see why "limited" run or Edition or what ever might be some sort of trick.

      The only reason the miniatures were sold so High on eBay all the Time was that they were limited aka never being produced & sold again.

      Delete
  21. It's now up for sale on the GW site. Get it while its hot.. I mean get it before Jerks buy it up and sell it for double on eBay..
