Oldhammer Day - Space Hulk 3d Table - Sargent Builds It!

Well, here is a little more information about one of our events that will be happening at Oldhammer Days USA on Oct. 24-26th in Glen Burnie, Md. Which means we are roughly two months away! Lots of stuff going on, of course, but I got some cool photos from Don on his new Space Hulk 3d board that he is creating. This is one of the things I am looking forward to playing myself, as it was one of my favorite games when it came out. But here you go:

Don's awesome workspace! I'd love to have that much room for just building stuff!

The molds that Don is using.





Taking the molded parts and making them match the tiles from the game.
After a bit, its starting to grow - check out the doors!
What it starts to look like on the table......this is what I am waiting to play on!
Some of the WIP genestealers shot.
One of the Squads of Terminators - Deathwing! - and may you never roll jams!

So that is just one more thing that will be happening at the Oldhammer Days, and thanks to Don for doing this project as well as sending me the pics! What do you guys think? Is this going to be fun, or what? And what are your memories of Space Hulk? It was first released in May 1989, which means I was still a teenager (Junior year of school). I was already into GW at the time, so it was a must for me, and I loved it. I have no real scientific evidence, but except for friends, I believe Heroquest and Space Hulk were the two largest things that got people into playing with GW figs. They released the second edition and it was just not as good due to the rules changes, which was finally corrected when they released the incredible 3rd edition in 2009, with the old rules! I have 2 1st edition, 3 3rd edition, and a bunch of 2nd (at least 4 or 5), so yes, I enjoyed this game. It was also the first game I played with the step-boys to introduce them to actually playing with all of my toy soldiers ;)

Is anyone else getting excited? I keep hearing about new people that might show up all the time! So remember, in two months, you could be throwing some dice, old school! Hope to see you there!

  2. Oh, yeah! Space Hulk rocks. When I reopened an old box out of storage and saw some Terminators lying at the bottom, the first thing I thought of was Space Hulk. It was, and remains, a gateway drug. I have a NIB copy of 3rd edition, but am afraid to open it. That said, I get my kicks with the (not as bad as rumored) latest PC version available via Stream. Good luck to Don, looks like a great start!

    I also have Incursion which, I am told, is based on the same mechanics as Space Hulk and lots of fun.
