Space Hulk - Marines Nil - Tyranid's Three.

Sunday night and Wyvern Wargamers have gone old Skool, Matt dusted off Space Hulk... A Games Workshop Classic....

I last played this 25 years ago!!!! ouch.
But it just goes to show you can't keep a good game down.

Big bad hulking Terminator Marines, going head to head with the nasty teeth gnashing, claw slashing Tyranid Genestealers. 

Game play was simple back in the day, with each Marine having 4 Actions a turn and the Tyranid 6 Actions. Command Points allow additional actions during the Space Marines turn OR during the Genestealer’s turn. One AP is used for basic actions such as moving a space, open a door, or fire most weapons. More advanced actions, such as going into overwatch require 2 AP. 

Simple - But as usual the devil's in the detail, move the wrong marine and your whole plan goes to pot.....

We managed to cram 3 games into a club night, each one down to the wire, unfortunately the marines lost everyone....

A cracking night's gaming, just the tonic for a week of work.....


  1. It obviously still has playing power and no doubt great fun too.

  2. Blimey! 25yrs ago, that is more frightening than those Genestealers.
