I recieved an email from Bits and Kits today. They are now shipping all of the parts for the new game for a limited time only.

I've ordered from Bits and Kits many times and never had a problem. Well one missing part once, but generally I've found them to be very good.

They're mostly out of stock now, I got the email yesterday..

I bought 20 of the dice, they only had 5 left afterwards, so I'm guessing they only had 5 boxes of space hulk!

Nobody seems to be buying the tiles, and some of the terminators seem relatively unpopular. Here's hoping they have 15 boxes and are restocking in batches of 5

SPACE HULK TIMER
LIMITED EDITION (NOT VERY ACCURATE)
0.25

:p
I love it.


I must say I'm tempted to buy some of the board pieces just to have extras to play about with or off some get damaged.

Yeah, I finally unsubscribed from his newsletter and will never buy from him again on that basis alone. There was always the element of the huckster around him, but now he's out-and-out gouging. To "heck" with him.

Hmm that does seem a little expensive, but it's a seller's market. Perhaps a year from now that will look like a bargain price?

And perhaps in a year we'll be laughing at the people who paid those prices because GW will have released the sprues separately.

Ha, given GW's customer focus, that's probably true;). Always stick it to the customer:D.

I bet the Warhammer 40k roleplaying audience would like to buy the tiles. The Rogue Trader / Dark Heresy people.

Damn, i fancied dome more of the dice. They're better than GW's usual ones.

I guarantee that the sprue will be available at some point. It is too expensive to sculpt and tool them for a single run release. I wouldn't be surprised to see them as a "Special Squad", like the Last Chancers IG squad. Otherwise GW will have made almost no profit from this release and, as a shareholder, that would **** me off.

I would really like to see them release that broodlord figure.

The marines can be easily converted to the 40k battlefeild but would the genestealers ever be released?

Not sure how that would be "sticking it to the customer".

I hope they release the sprues separately.

Well, if GW promote the game as a limited edition and then start releasing sprues and re-issuing the game itself, it wouldn't exactly be limited. I fully expect GW to push SH in the future.

The thing that disapoints me most about the whole limited release thing is that they may never redo Deathwing or the Genestealer expansions. :(

Genestealer hybrids with terminator killing heavy weapons :cries:

IMO, that took away something of the essence of the game. The Studio said they made this one as the best amalgamation of the existing rules.

Besides, adding Deathwing would be pointless. Bunch of underachieving nancies ;)

It would still be limited because the game itself would be unavailable. Since GW don't have the means of production I can't see them ever releasing the card floor tiles again. But the miniatures I hope and expect to see released again in some form or other.

Truth be told I would love it if GW announced that due to massive demand they were going to do another run. I would especially love it if that meant all the profiteers ended up with loads of bitz and boxes they could no longer sell.

I would love to see some new hybrid models. I know its not going to happen but still ...
