Space Hulk is back and I'm very excited. I played Space Hulk to death after getting my hands on the Space Hulk point and click from Tearsdown.se which is sadly no longer available.
Space Hulk has been in the rumours for well over a year, so I was a little scheptical, but Space Hulk is finally here!
I've ordered my Space Hulk box this morning. I was tempted to get 2, then realised I was being a bit silly and bought just 1 instead.
Space Hulk TacticsHaving played the Space Hulk point and click game more than any sane person should, I've learned that Real Space Hulk tactics are very different to the 'obvioius tactics' normally employed.
Playing the Genestealers is relatively straightforward, unless the Space Marine player is incredibly lucky.
Playing the Space Marine terminators however, is a very tricky and tactical affair. Simply setting up 4 guys in a room, looking down each corridor is a recipe for disaster.
In Space Hulk, you not only have to create crossing lanes of fire, but get into the habit of getting your guys into position.
One example, is what I like to call Room Cross Fire.
You place 1 Space Marine in each corner of a room (if you have 5 guys, place the heavy flamer in the middle).
The Space Marine in the bottom right corner looks North, the Space Marine in the top right corner looks West, the Smace Marine in the top left corner looks South and the Space Marine in the bottom left corner looks East. Put them ALL on Overwatch and you've covered every angle with the firepower to put down ANYTHING that comes into the room, even if one of your guns jams.
That's all on Space Hulk for now until I get my box in the post. Then there might be a Space Hulk blog from me. Who knows?
