I almost picked this gem up when it first came out a few years back, but I hesitated, and like so may Games Workshop games, it was quickly out of print. I mostly wanted it for the hybrids to fill out the ranks of the Spacehulk Genestealers, so no big loss, really.
Anyhow, I was able to scoop it up at a sale, and what do you know, first things first I started painting the damn marines.
Despite having ten tons of other miniatures to paint, I’ve decided to hammer out this board game before anything else. Five Deathwatch marines down, six to go! (and then the Genestealer side, of course)
And hey! I finally have an actual light box to work with!
