From the web:

A lot of chatter coming in on Space Hulk. Often once the cat is out of the bag, others feel free to expand upon their information, or make more of it available to be posted up from behind the scenes conversations.

Here are the latest on Space Hulk! And yes…… It’s Coming.

    Interesting seeing rumors on TGN. I’ve respected that this is actually a news outlet for a while and that BOLS and BOW were the rumor mills. Guess that paradigm has shifted.

    People been talking about this for a long time. The teaser vid went up a while back. Apparently, all the specific info is in the new issue of WD.

    So, not much of a rumor, at this point.

      That’s how GW rumors work Wormwood.. we get scans and leaks and WD pictures a week or two before it’s announced. If this article had referenced official news I wouldn’t have been complaining (like GW teasers of past). In this instance, it’s a link to a blog where someone is talking about other sources of info. I get enough of that elsewhere.

        Yeah. We used to have confirmation with photos of GW stuff, with complete statlines while the official word is “We’re going to release a mysterious SOMETHING!”

        We could call these rumors, but GW has announced that they intend to announce it. That’s enough to make it news to me.

    Its not a new Version its the last one with some added missions and counters for those missions but no new miniatures.
    Tho I’m kinda happy as I hadn’t gotten back into the hobby yet when it last came out and didn’t want to spend $300 on ebay to get one. Hopefully it won’t be so limited this time around and those who want one get a chance to buy it before their gone.

    • odinsgrandson

      Yeah. I got the 3rd, so this isn’t a big deal to me. I never could understand why on earth they didn’t just keep it in print. So that they could then release expansions for it like every other popular board game.

      I hope this time around it isn’t limited, but I wouldn’t place bets.

        GW isn’t a board game company. They are a miniatures company. By that logic, they axed some of the very best board games on the market. I’m more surprised that they haven’t licensed this out to Fantasy Flight, like Talisman, Fury of Dracula, and so on, but I get the impression that limited edition Space Hulk releases are a guaranteed way to generate income when strapped for cash.

          FFG cannot produce anything that contains miniatures that can possibly be used in a 40k/WHFB games.

          • Soulfinger

            Right. They’d have to be a smaller scale, as with Talisman (or the fantastic busts in Relic), and have less skulls on them.
