Space Hulk at Gen Con 2015

SHACFOK301

Gen Con event registration goes live this Sunday 5/17. Again this year we will be running Space Hulk at Gen Con.  Look for the “Fall of Kagul III” events (NMN1572280 & NMN1572283) on Friday, July 31 at 11:00am and 4:00pm .  Everyone had a blast playing this scenario at Adepticon on the 14′ x 4′ two level 3D terrain board and we’re planning a few improvements and tweaks to make it even better.  Check out the Space Hulk page for rules and details on the scenario.

The terrain is built from the Spaceship X sets from Creative Gamescapes.  I have a couple of cases for sale at a significant discount, (~$25 a set).  Contact me at info@basementofdeath.com if you are interested.
