First Look: Space Hulk

By Jim Rossignol on March 27th, 2013.


I am on the show floor at GDC, standing next to an unflappable and smiling Thomas Lund of Full Control Studios. He is pleased. He is showing me Space Hulk. He is so excited about it that I can’t help get caught up in his enthusiasm and start feeling giddy, even though I have been taking all of my cynicism medication. He’s been gesticulating and enthusing and SPACE HULK.

It looks pretty great.

Exclusive: All About The New Space Hulk PC Game

By Alec Meer on March 1st, 2013.

Rejoice, heretics. There’s going to be a brand new, turn-based and faithful PC adaptation of legendary Games Workshop boardgame Space Hulk, and I am really very excited about this. So I had a good old chat with Thomas Hentschel Lund, boss of Full Control, the studio behind this sci-fi strategy game of man versus alien in desperate battle. Inside: the first (and excellent) in-game screenshots, details on how it works, what’s been tweaked, if it’s as brutal as the source material, whether PC or iOS is the lead platform, whether it nods to the old EA first-person games, and how the whole thing happened due to one very happy accident involving a fire pit.

(You can click on the first two screenshots in this post for fancy HD versions, by the way).

A Grown-Up Post About Space Hulk

By Alec Meer on December 11th, 2012.

I was under the impression that my announcement post about the new PC adaptation of Games Workshop boardgame Space Hulk yesterday was as comprehensive as can be, but it transpires that I may have overlooked a minor detail or two. For instance, what type of game it is, who’s making it and how it will work. Allow me to fill in these tiny gaps now.

Gaming Made Me: Games Workshop Made Me

By Dan Grill on May 7th, 2011.


I’m ten. I’m sitting in the solvent-soaked school art room doodling, when my friends sneak in. They’ve got something amazing to show me. It’s a little dwarf made out of lead, and Fat Winnie has just bought it off Big-Nosed Will, who actually painted it. It’s like got an AXE! Will’d mainly used red paint on it (“For the blood” he says. He now works in advertising) but it’s soooo cool. This is the start.

Overwatch, Baby: Scottish Space Hulk Ranting

By Kieron Gillen on September 15th, 2009.

He totally is.

As anyone who listened to the last podcast I did will know, my last couple of weeks have been based around rushing to the door at the slightest sound of postman. Perpetual disappointment which was made unperpetual yesterday when the ridiculously beautiful Space Hulk 3rd edition turned up. Geeking out even more than me was Ex-Consolevania Now-Downtimetown Rab Florence, who has recorded 10 of the finest high-geek ranting I’ve seen in quite a while. You’ll find it below. It features cardboard comparison and kissing, vocoded songs about overwatch and close up of space-marine crotches. It’s quite the thing. I justify this as an RPS post because i) Space Hulk was the basis of the fine game Alec wrote about previously and ii) I’m incorrigible.

EDIT: Space Hoax! Oh my aching sides.

By Jim Rossignol on April 1st, 2008.


The independent Space Hulk project being developed by Teardown hasn’t been okay’d by the suits at THQ:

We have amazing news! All of our efforts have finally paid of. With some help from our forum we got in contact with a producer behind Dawn of War at THQ. He really loved this game, in fact so much that he helped us talk to their laywers and for the last week we have worked around the clock to get all the vital approvals to once again persuade Games Workshop to let us release our game. We have kept this quiet to not jinx anything but now its official! SPACE HULK IS BACK!

Great news for Teardown, and a sensible decision by THQ and Games Workshop. Assuming, of course, that someone isn’t doing a poor taste April Fool’s post over on teardown.se…

Retro: Space Hulk

By Alec Meer on March 31st, 2008.

Much as I’m fond of it, I’ve always had one major complaint about Dawn of War. It doesn’t feel very Warhammer 40,000. It certainly looks pretty Warhammer 40,000 – fans are well-serviced by grisly animations and the army painter tool – but I never got much sense of the universe’s character. All that colour, all that cartoonishness, all that replenishing lost troops… I want DARKNESS and FEAR and EVERY MAN DOWN IS LIKE A PUNCH TO THE STOMACH. I want Space Hulk.

Purge With Fire. In a Good Way.

By Kieron Gillen on February 20th, 2008.

GET THEM!!!!

Space Hulk was on my mind anyway – I was thinking of group-based tactical games with a claustrophobic atmosphere after playing Spectrum-Aliens-remake LV-426 (Which, were I making Bioshock 2, I’d rip off completely). So when news of a just-released Space Hulk remake reached me, I was overjoyed, making plans to step back into the early nineties of EA’s multi-windowed paranoia-fest. Except then I realised that while they have EA’s (And Games Workshop’s) permission to do this, it isn’t based on the computer game at all. It’s based on the board game. So it looks like this:
