Long time fan favourite, Space Hulk is making a comeback, and this week White Dwarf is absolutely bursting with it!
Space Hulk was a board game first introduced back in 1989 which used Games Workshop Terminators and Genestealers in a battle of turn-based blood letting. The game was great and my family were subjected to playing it for years. Sorry mum!
Issues of White Dwarf at the time released a number of added scenarios and also rules to play Space Hulk with, for example, normal power armoured Space Marines - these were awesome!
But back to this week's White Dwarf - as I said it is dominated by Space Hulk, but we also get a look at the united forces of the Undead under Nagash and Sprues and Glue looks at how to make your own undead horde. PLUS a Space Hulk painting guide!

I am not a photographer, so expect dodgy pictures below.
12 Terminators and 22 Genestealers all snap together, but very dynamic!
The orignal Space Hulk was the first real introduction of Genestealers (apart from references in Rogue Trader) and the first time Terminator armour was so heavily featured. Originally Space Hulk missions were the only time Terminator armour was used, but GW saw the popularity and put them onto the battlefield..
There's also a Disable The Shields WD Exclusive mission!
These tips are pretty straight forward, but any clues how to keep the red from looking like orange is always good for hobbyists.
If not, it might be a stretch to keep you interested...
As far as Space Hulk goes, it used to be great game, so unless they have totally destroyed it, then it's totally worth a look at, especially if they service it with expansions.
