Is the 4th Edition of Space Hulk out of stock (between print runs) or out of print?

The post above about availability is correct. This is an inside joke (and, it's a pretty good one). But, at present, there are no rumors of a reprint. Divide 25 years since First Edition by 3 more editions, and you see the time between reprints ain't small. On the other hand, GW has released a veritable welter of boardgames in the recent couple of years.

As they have just released a new (well, updated old) scenario for SH AND as GW seems to have rediscovered their love for the "G" in their name, my guess is that a new printing will be on the horizon before long - maybe even one with a slightly different flavour (Deathwing against Hormangaunts?)

I want to go on record as saying without reservation, I will never own more than my current FOUR editions of Space Hulk (including multiple copies, and expansions). I will NOT buy a 5th Edition, unless it's cool, or whatever.*



*"Deathwing against Hormagaunts" would classify as "cool." Dammit!

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will try FLGS's to see if they still have stock at non-inflated prices. It seems like the stock of the 2014, 4th edition, went quick. Here's hoping for a 5th edition soon.

I'm looking at you, Game Works.

Naahhh. Can´t imagine GW will release some kind of 5th Edition of Space Hulk.
4th Ed. is the thing and it shouldn´t be hard to get hold of. Some stores still have it available.
4th Ed. never sold as much and as fast as 3rd Edition did.

I saw copies on eBay for prices that weren't inflated at all (though, mostly third editions).
So if your FLGS doesn't work out, you still have an option.

If I can still find working copy of 2nd edtion, I have faith anyone can find 3rd or 4th. When if comes to buying GW miniatures, where there is no willpower, there is a way.

There seem to be many FLGS that have still have stock.
If not, ebay prices are nowhere near as bad as they used to be.


Hey now, this isn't Microsoft....
