The brief for the gaming weekend was simple

A text message that said: “We’ll play Space Hulk. Bring 10 models and make your own rules. See you there!”

Reading between the (sparse) lines, we all knew to expect lots of rum too

I brought two squads of Deathwing. And just for funsies, made one of them Deathwing Knights. In hindsight, bringing a squad of close combat Terminators aboard a space hulk to tackle a Genestealer infestation was a little ill-advised… cool… but ill-advised

The other squads included; a Tau stealth suit team (with their own neat ‘blip’ markers to represent them being cloaked), a squad of Chaos Iron Warriors and a mob of Beastmarines

We had a series of fun missions to complete and each took it in turns to play the Genestealers. We also added rules for ‘explodable’ scenery – if targeted and a hit is scored on a set of barrels, they explode and kill everything in the same tile on a 2+! (hilariously, this caused the Chaos player to ‘go all bottom-lippy’ when his entire squad was blown up by a suicidal Beastmarine power-fisting a set of barrels in the same room!)

Oh the fun!
