I made a Space Hulk copy

After a lot of work, I'm proud to say that my home-made copy of Space Hulk, set in the StarCraft universe, is ready.

I don't want to repeat myself, so you can go read about it here : www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/453696

Re:I made a Space Hulk copy

Other than the 'I don't like the style of the minis' I don't see the point in making your own copy of Space Hulk other than the miniature version made for portability by someone who already owned Space Hulk.

The price point issue is basically a load of bull as Space Hulk doesn't lose its value if it is taken care of and can be resold for the same or more than the game cost in the first place.

I checked a few of the links you had and they are directly to older editions of Games Workshop's Space Hulk rules and missions. At least consider going the extra mile and really retheming it, add some rules that are tailored to the Starcraft universe, and create some missions that reflect it.

Re:I made a Space Hulk copy

The price was a big issue for me. The box is really heavy, and since no one is importing this to Israel, I would have to pay over 60$ per delivery + up to 30% tax when it arrives (and they even tax you for the shipping cost, so it might go beyond the 200$ point).

And yes, what I made is a first edition copy. Mostly because when I started, there was no data available for the 3rd (i.e. the rules, missions, list of tiles etc').

Adding some specific rules/missions for the StarCraft universe is a good idea (I thought, for example, of getting the Protoss in somehow), but since I never played the original, I think I should play it first before coming up with my own ideas.

Re:I made a Space Hulk copy

So what we clearly need here is an affordable Space Hulk smuggling ring to Israel then.

Or maybe just someone to legally import it... But that wouldn't be as exciting.

Well I think it looks pretty awesome. And if the miniatures don't satisfy you long term you can always shell out for some old 2nd edition SH figures on Ebay. Congratulations on all your hard work - hope you enjoy the game.

Luck is good, the prize is pleasant but the glory's in the game!

Re:I made a Space Hulk copy

If anyone is considering making a space hulk out of hirst blocks, Hirst has recently added a mold that adds a 1/4" mechanical looking border to the tiles. The larger sculpts didn't fit well on the old tiles so this addition is ideal.

just fyi.

Thanks.
I actually bought a couple of squads to replace the marines from:
www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Science_Fiction.html#aSFP4
but they'll need some paint before I can use them.
I didn't find any good (and cheap) replacement for the zerg. I'll try to look up the 2nd ed. Genestealers.
