Well Royal Mail did me proud and Space Hulk arrived and within an hour my son was battling with Genestealers and writing his own miniature legend! The game took around an hour as we plodded through the rules but it was an exciting and tense affair...aptly named Suicide! The marines did flame the room as ordered but the last two men perished the very next turn. I had forgotten just how awesome this game was and watching my son making decisions and enjoying himself really made my day....see for yourselves, it was fun!
The figures are a little dated but I will strip and repaint the metals using nail polish remover and for the plastic Genestealers I will soak them in Dettol for 24 hours which strips paint but does not damage the plastic. In no time the figures will look far more modern. I suppose for the time of this games release the figures were painted to the standard of the time?
Thanks for looking, my son and I recommend this game to anyone who likes miniature gaming, bargains are still out there!
