Howdy guys.

I've been a long time Lurker on BGG but this is my first post.

Anyway, I just got Space Hulk, and it's awesome. But, I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about using other races in Space Hulk. I play Orks in 40K, so I would love to have an Ork vs. Nid or Marines vs. Orks Space Hulk game. Any thoughts on how to convert other races to Space Hulk?

The following site has rules to expand SH in order to play other races:

These rules are for the 1st edition but I'm sure that they can work also with the 3rd ones without too much problems.

And take this & this & this ...

Though there is little Orkishness going on..
Two guys have house-ruled Ork squads.
And currently 'Exterminatus' has them as a GS replacement.

I want rules that will enable me to have Orcs VS Eldar ,SM VS Necrons,,etc.
So I will end up making my own rules for the Boyz's,
building off what has been written by others and
my own interpretation of what Orc's should be in a 'Hulk.

There are however plenty of Official(for 1st or 2nd Ed.) & homegrown for Eldar, Tyranid, Harlequins, traitors, etc.

Ohh, and grab all the Missions these 'fine fellows' have posted on their sites.
You'll never hurt for a new Mission.
( might have to adapt some missions to the 3rd's tile
set, but thats fun too )

Just for fun, you understand, we played with some Small World races and had a great giggle doing it.

Thanks to all of you for this super cool thread. I have played WarHammer, not (40K). I did play Space Hulk a few years ago , I am not sure what the version was,, probably Ver.1. I enjoyed it maybe more than WarHammer or just as much.

There were 4 vof us playing two for each side, I was in command of a few Space Termiaters/marienes and ended up the last man standing at the end of a dead end with a bunch of 'Aliens' that were left, racing up the corridor to end my life. I had unbelevable luck in my dice throws, I almost wiped the lot of them out before I was killed.

Dissapointed to lose the game but proud to have died a heroes death

Anyway I have just been to a Games Expo here in Brisbane Queensland and had to order Space Hulk as they were sold out for the day.

I watched some others playing Space Hulk there and I kept thinking, there has to be a good way to use other characters, like from my WarHammer set or maybe even buy other figures such as the 40K Orks just for one example.

So thanks again guys for the tips you have all provided.

Mike.

Here are the maps for the missions at Willem's site - http://www.boardgamegeek.com/images/user/112104

For some reason they are no longer online, but he sent them to me by e-mail recently.

PS You'll still need to go to his site for the mission data.

OMFG.

I just realised this is it. This is the ninja vs pirates game.

Imagine this team of five ninjas with electric guitars, some of them with a buttered frisbee, some with just a badass boner, facing a swarm of pirates with banjos.

I already love that game
