Space Hulk - Then to Now

As a fun break from rules development and painting, I broke open my shiny new copy of Space Hulk and assembled the miniatures. The pictures that Games Workshop published showed just how breathtaking the new miniatures are, especially to veterans. For those who haven't seen the older models, I thought a side-by-side would bring everything into perspective.

Librarian... 1st vs 3rd Editions

Sergeant... 2nd vs 3rd Editions

Heavy Flamer Terminator... 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Editions

Terminator... 1st, 2nd, and 3r3rd Editions

Anybody who hadn't decided whether or not they will buy this game... buy it. This is just a sample of the Marine models. The Genestealers are fantastic, the board, counters, and templates are rock-solid and attractive, even the dice are unique. I wish I had an old version of Space Hulk to compare boards and counters... maybe their prices will be driven down with the modern release? Only time will tell.
