... with regards to miniatures and missing bits for Space Hulk, there is a guy called Wolfgang in Germany who runs a games shop in Munich:

http://www.games-in.de/

Scroll down to the bottom of the web page and you will see Space Hulk being advertised. You can get an approximate translation fom Google.

The story is that when the 1st edition of Space Hulk was being decomissioned, he somehow came to a deal with GW in Germany where he got most of the left over components for Space Hulk... but NOT the boxes, which hadn't been printed.

As a consequence he now offers COMPLETE SETS OF SPACE HULK (without the box) for approx.16 Euros as of 24th Feb 2008. That's approx. £12.00. For that, you get the COMPLETE GAME - pieces, miniatures, rules, the lot - just no box.

How do I know this? Because I ordered a set from him, and I can vouch that you get what is advertised. The figures are still on the sprues, the pieces are still in the factory cards. On the downside, the writing on some of the cards is in German, not English. However... 16 Euros for a complete MINT set of Terminators and Genestealers?!?!?!? 16 Euros for all of the corridor and room pieces in MINT condition! Yes PLEASE!

He does ship to the US, but you'd have to contact Wolfgang to get the postage from Europe from him.

Hope this helps!

There are STILL some of these left??? I got mine about three or four years ago, when they were sold via ebay for roughly the same price.
Makes me wonder how many parts were left, when Welt der Spiele (the first publisher for german Space Hulk) was closed down.
For international customers it should be mentioned, that the rulebook is german. Apart from that it really is a great deal - go for it!

I got my copy back in summer 2007, and he's still advertising them now... I think he must have several hundred copies of the Space Hulk stored in a backroom Also, when I ordered, he asked if I wanted the German or English rules, and I got English rules with my set.

16e for the base game seems pretty good. The postage isn't bad either - 39e. I'm not sure what the 17e "method of Payment" charge is though - then there's another 10e in fees! that makes it a pretty pricey game for someone from out of the Eurozone.

This has come up in another Space Hulk thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/247067
I ordered 3 sets from him just before Xmas (presents for myself and 2 friends)... They arrived promptly and because the postage (to the Uk at least) is the same for 3 sets as for 1 set it worked out even cheaper. Managed to pick up an empty box and mint copy of the rules (he only supplys photocopies of the English rules) on Ebay and now I have a complete and mint copy of Space Hulk 1st Edition (for about £20 altogether)...

I contacted him at info (at) games-in-vlg.de to place an order but i got no reply back.

How did you order? Is there another contact email address? Does he understand English?

I agree with Dave, I contacted him via the e-mail on his web page, and although it took a couple of days he did get back to me. He was extremely helpful, and had very good English. Hope this helps!

E-mailed him 3 days ago and haven't gotten a reply yet. It is a shame too because I really would love to have at least a couple new sets.

I can't speak German, so no, I didn't notice.

I find it odd they'd keep that product listed on there and not have a purchasing option. If they don't expect to have any more, and are sold out, then why keep it on there?

I must have been lucky. Emailed Wolfgang about a month ago, got a response 3 weeks ago and game delivered today. The miniatures have "GW 1991" stamped on the sprue. Everything just as I remembered it all those years ago. Rule book and campagne book are b&w photocopies. Ordered 3 copies for a couple of friends...total cost about 40 bucks per set. Not too bad for a perfect condition set minus the box.

I may be able to get part of a set; sadly the sheet with the short corridors will be missing, I will get an extra "long corridors" sheet. Can someone tell me if it will be playable?

That sounds what I need - for some reason I have all the small sections and the large ones are missing!

When I explain I am on a holy quest to recover my Space Hulk and expansions which my parents threw away he will undoubtedly give me a discount.

Hi, I got an e-mail back from him:

Hello,

we don't have the sheet with the short corridor pieces anymore.
We can send you an additional copy of the sheet with the long corridor
pieces instead. You have to cut 2 of 4-grid corridors with a jigsaw into
halves.

Shipment costs for up to 3 copies are EUR 23,90.

We use PayPal for credit cards.


Kind Regards,

Wolfgang Reich

Dachauer Str. 42

Germany


He was a bit slow to respond, but he is still trading, albeit with no short corridor pieces.

I got the same reply but shipping is expensive and you no longer get the short corridors.

Since i have 2nd edition, i'll not buy this edition at this price if components are missing.

Hmmm, I'm still sort of tempted. I already have 1st edition, but it would certainly be nice to have double the tiles, even if some of them are the wrong size. Hmmm.

Received mine today. nicely packed, some of the plastic parts coming loose though. board pieces are perfect, like new. As said, "short corridors" sheet is missing, I'll have to cut the extra "long corridors sheet" that was provided as replacement. I have to come up with a way to do this neatly...

People who are thinking of getting this have to know that even after having cut the long corridors into short ones you won't get exactly the same tiles as the original. you can get the right number of tiles, but their design differs.

Something else : I managed to cut my tiles neatly, using a needle to mark the shape of the cut, a cutter knife for the straight parts, and a micro chisel for the round corners. this way I can use both sides of the tiles I cut.
