Black Templar make Space Hulk debut at Gen Con

Black Templar Space Hulk

Gen Con 2016 is less than a week away!  The BoD Space Hulk event is on Friday at 11 & 4.   This time, we’ve added a couple of new things to the Assault on Castobel scenario, a new Broodlord and a new squad, the Black Templar!

Our thanks to the Frontline Gaming and TableWar for some F.A.T. Mat support and ModCube for the custom Space Hulk tokens set and cubes for the players.   If you are at Gen Con we will be in Hall B : Green : 19–20, stop by and say hi.

Adepticon 2016 Space Hulk Preview

Adepticon 2016 is approaching fast.  We’re running the “Assault” scenario on Friday and the “Fall” scenario on Saturday. They are similar to last year but we can’t leave it alone so we’re making some small changes to the layout and possibly providing some alternate Marine squads. Below is a short preview of “Assault on Castobel”

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.
