Default what was space hulk?

I have heard people reminiscing about it on the forums, and GW has something referring to it but i never figured out what it was. Could you help me out?

An early 40K game which introduced Terminators and Genestealers to the game. You had control of a small squad and wandered through meandering tunnels hunting down your opposition, and attempting to complete missions, although the Genestealer players mission was invariably "Kill the Terminators". Later on, further races were added to the game (Chaos, Orks ETC)

what do you mean the computor games or the table-top game?

the game was originally a version of 40k where Smurf terminators fought off various nasties but usually nids along the cardboard token corridors of a space ship, if my memory is right (ie if the terrified brain cells havent been killed off by booze yet) you also had various cardboard token for repair vehicles called CAT?

there were two PC games based on it, the first was really lame but the one they made in the early nineties was pretty class

That was the second edition of the game with the CAT, but yes that is the one. It wasn't a bad game on PC and Playstation, aside from the speech. (Generally along the lines of "I CANNOT FIND!!! An Archive. Record. Viewer.")

Spacehulk rocks. The game was hilarious until KJ lost it.

"I CAN. SMELL ... THEM. No, that's just AKKHAD." ;D

Personaly if you play 40k and do not know what space hulk is you should be hurt badly.

I've heard of it and seen it played but I never have. GW is coming out with space hulk terrain(like space ship corridoors). I saw them at Games Day.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
