I must say the models are gorgeous and from what I can tell NOT pre-painted (though I never figured they would be with GW)

Damn near almost bought two. Then my obsessive compulsiveness took over and I realised my mind would never cope with owning an extra Broodlord and an extra Librarian... that and I own Space Hulk. Both versions. And both their expansions... twice over.

So I stuck with one.

Those Genestealers are awesome. I hope they're the standard for the next 'Nid codex.

People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

Not me, that's for sure. I wanted cardboard corridors, and looking at the pics the joins appear to be exactly the same, so they'll fit with the old tiles and the old old tiles, and, for those of you that remember it, even the Tyranid Attack tiles.

That's 100% what I wanted out of this, and I got it. Another cool thing is this version won't be in French like my copy of SH 2nd Ed.

Oooh, a thread I started is being made "official SH thread"...

Hmm, now do I pay my cell bill on Wednesday or buy SH (payday is wednesday)?

Do I really need to talk on the phone when I'm not home painting?......don't think so.

Nothing about it hasn't been done before. GW were lying through their teeth and out their asses simultaneously - did you expect anything less?

Really? Was that not obvious? Was it the Blood Angels iconography all over the models or the vampire teeth on the librarian that made it difficult for you?

Inside your mind, corrupting the pathways

Not really a fan of what I can see of the stealers and termies. I like dynamic poses, but not dynamic poses that everyone who buys the game will have.

I also don't really like Blood Angels.

I will stick with using my old SH board and some of the many new generation stealers and termies that I have to play on it with.

That is, assuming that anyone I know is a) getting it and b) wants to play it.

No one I know has been interested in doing so since the last time it was released, so hey...

I'm not so sure about the road-kill stealer, but I'm loving all the other poses so far. Also, I'm happy that I've finally managed to get a copy of SH as I could never afford it the last two times around.

Someone needs to do a diorama of that flamer terminator hitching a lift from a Land Raider

There's letting the rumour mill work itself into a frenzy and there's outright lying. So yeah, I am surprise. And a little butthurt, but that'll heal.

I bet you if GW is confronted about that, they'll just say "Oh... Ahem! Uh, we were talking about, um, the mystery box! The mystery box has never been done before..."

That lie is what made this dramatic unveiling so anti-climactic.

I'd say so far the positive responses and posts saying "i preordered" show it isn't such an anticlimatic unveiling afterall

Oh sweet, they also added the release date: 5th of September. Meaning two weeks from now, give or take if GW's Mail Order Trolls are as generous as always.

They could have said "Space Hulk is coming!" and then revealed little bits over the next few weeks, or even just a picture (like that great box art) and slowly revealed little bits of it over time - a new part every Monday or whatever.

But no. We got lies and self-important bullshittery from the monkey-feths at the GK studio instead. Bravo.

Still - cardboard tiles and a big honkin' Broodlord!!! Can't complain.

Right behind you.

I'm more curious as to if the iconography is sculpted or painted on(the stuff like Bael, that is).

Because otherwise?
