I am currently having a nice offer for this game and it looks gorgeous... i like miniature games and i like dungeon crawling my only reservation as stupid as it may sound is that there is only one evil boss(brood lord) in this game? i like my games to have plenty of evil bosses cause just one makes the game quite linear.... i i would like your opinions

If you look at the box components, there's a lot of genestealers. They're the monsters. They attack you every.single.time.they.can. They're everywhere. They don't let you play. They don't let you breath. They spawn every turn. They grow in number every time you're not looking.

On those escenarios in which the Broodloord plays, you hope he doesn't be near you.

SH isn't really a dungeon-crawl. It's a claustrophobic, scenario-based miniatures battle game.
As the Space Marines you will have a goal. The Genestealer (alien) player will be throwing as many aliens as they can between you and that goal. The aliens are faster than you and brutal in melee combat, but you have ranged weapons - they don't.

Not sure if this one is your cup of tea, but it is a great game. Check out some gameplay videos on YouTube and see if you like it.

Classic game - I highly recommend. The timer mechanic for the space marine player is something i find really compelling. I lost a game, essentially, by being under pressure and not realizing the hourglass was out. My nephew pounced on me the next turn, crippling my squad (I think he took out three marines) and it was...ahem...game over, man, game over...

As for expansions, there are older expansions for the original versions. I also know that Games Workshop has current expansions available on the Apple store (sorry...no Android). I'm an Android user, so I can't speak to them, but I've heard they add in other types/chapters of space marines.

Love the game. Doesn't hit the table as much as I wish, but seems like even if the same scenario gets played, it hasn't been boring or repetitive.

I've heard Space Hulk described this way as well... "Easy to learn. Difficult to master." And I think that fits it perfectly. I love this game. It is one of my all-time favorites.

I believe they originally made this to feel like the aliens movie, and it does!

Genestealers are all bosses. Let one get too close and you'll learn that the hard way!

It's a great game, it's what inspired me to get into Warhammer 40,000 about 25 years ago, and today it's still my favorite game set in that universe. IMHO an absolute classic with tons of replayability based on the stock missions, plus you can of course make up your own using the pieces provided.
