Default What is a Space Hulk/Hulk?

Heya,

I've seen these mentioned in many stories I've read, but I'm not sure what they are?

Thanks.

Space Hulks are gigantic space going vessels that are created through the conglomeration of many ships that have been lost in the warp. For unknown reasons these ships have drifted together and fused into one entity. Space hulks drift in and out of warp space seemingly at randon and are often inhabited by Orks or Genestealers.

They are very valuable, as they can be converted into more space faring craft.

Strictly speaking, the term "Space Hulk" is used to describe any abandoned vessel that has been left to drift in space. However, the term is most often used to describe massive conglomerates of ships, asteroids and ice all fused together in Warp Space. A Space Hulk could be comprised of up to twenty wreaks or more, some of which are older than the Imperium itself!
