    Thumbs up My personal Space Hulk Collection

    UPDATE 4/3/17

    {{Photobucket has been messing up on my original account, so I had to switch accounts. I took all new higher quality photos of my armies and put them all up below (links have been updated). }}

    I've been a Space Hulk enthusiast since I was about 15....that was 20 years ago lol. I lost contact with the game for a bit in between, but since a renewed interest and fresh look at the strategy and storyline behind Space Hulk, I have spent many an hour and dollar on trying to fill out my collection. (Note: Can pay for, is not always the equivalent of can afford. I'm sure I could have started a small hedge fund or some such with what I have invested into what has become a minor obsession with this game.)

    Please enjoy the picture galleries of the minis in my Space Hulk collection. I have hand-painted 95% of it all myself (except a few Tyranids, and a couple of the squats which are not regular Space Hulk races), often having to do the entire process of stripping old paint jobs, and doing them up from scratch. It has been a journey unto itself to work with these minis, my painting technique evolving along with my understanding of the game's strategy.

    (Note: I started with Testor's enamels, then was able to get a screaming deal on a set of Vallejo's acrylics on an ebay bid, which I have worked with ever since. Acrylics dry a bit faster, are easier to manage, and you don't have to deal with the fumes of enamel paint and thinner. It's a win-win for your minis and your lungs. )

    The first bunch of minis complete were the Blood Angels Chapter, a few were added at later times.

    The Boxes of games shelf..

    Hope you enjoyed sharing this as much as I did!

    In honor of great Space Hulk & Warhammer gamings, I give you the very best Imperial Quotes!

    A good general does not lead an army to destruction just because he knows it will follow.
    A good soldier obeys without question. A good officer commands without doubt.
    A mind without purpose will wander in dark places.
    A small mind is a tidy mind.
    A small mind is easily filled with faith.
    A man can remake the world if he has a dream and no facts to cloud his mind.
    All untruths are sedition.
    An empty mind is a loyal mind.
    Anyone who will not fight by your side is an enemy you must crush.
    Be strong in your ignorance.
    Better crippled in body than corrupt in mind.
    Blessed is the mind too small for doubt.
    Camouflage is the color of fear.
    Carry the Emperorís Will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.
    Cease and Repent.
    Crush the unholy in all of their many guises.
    Damnation is Eternal.
    Death is the servant of the righteous.
    Destroy the impure.
    Doubt is the open gate through which slips the most fatal of enemies.
    Even a heretic may repent and in his death be saved. A traitor is forever damned.
    Every man is expected to work his fingers to the bone to accomplish the task in hand. And if that proves insufficient, he shall work them to the marrow!
    Examine your thoughts.
    Excuses are the refuge of the weak.
    Exitus Acta Probat: The outcome justifies the deed.
    Extreme remedies are most appropriate for extreme diseases.
    Faith in the Emperor is its own reward.
    Faith without deeds is worthless.
    Faith is the sturdiest armour. Hatred the surest weapon.
    Fear me, for I am your apocalypse.
    Fear not the creatures of the jungle but those that lurk within your mind.
    For a warrior the only crime is cowardice.
    For those who seek perfection there can be no rest this side of the grave.
    Follow me if I advance. Kill me is I retreat. Avenge me if I die.
    Form follows content.
    Guns and warriors are useful but it is our indomitable will that promises the ultimate victory.
    Hatred is eternal.
    He who lives for nothing is nothing. He who dies for the Emperor is a hero.
    He who loses a limb lives on. He who loses his head does not.
    He who seizes the moment, he is the right man.
    Honour, duty & obedience.
    Hope is the beginning of unhappiness.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
    If a jobís worth doing, itís worth dying for.
    If you want peace, prepare for war.
    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.
    Innocence proves nothing.
    Inspiration grows from the barrel of a gun.
    It causes me constant pain. I would not have it any other way, for it serves as a remainder against complacency.
    It is better to die for the Emperor than to live for yourself.
    Ignorance is a virtue.
    Ignorance is no excuse.
    In failure are the seeds of Heresy sown.
    Information is power.
    Innocence proves nothing.
    Know thine enemy.
    Know your destination before you set out.
    Knowledge is power, hide it well.
    Knowledge is power, guard it well.
    Let faith light the darkness of your soul.
    No battle was every won that was poorly planned. No plan ever succeeded that was poorly conceived.
    No man that died in the Emperorís service died in vain.
    Nobody is innocent, there are merely varying degrees of guilt.
    Not even the dead know the end of war.
    Nothing can hide from the wrath of the Emperor.
    One man can start a landslide with the casting of a single pebble.
    Only the lost understand true terror.
    Only in death does duty end.
    Only the awkward question; only the foolish ask twice.
    Pain is an illusion of the senses, despair is an illusion of the mind.
    Peace is hell.
    Peace? There cannot be peace in these times.
    Perseverance and silence are the highest virtues.
    Prayer cleanses the soul, but pain cleanses the body.
    Purge the unclean.
    Purity is not your best defense; it is your only defense.
    Retribution stalks the heretic from afar.
    Seek reward in service alone.
    Serve the Emperor today, for tomorrow you may be dead.
    Sorrow awaits the foolhardy.
    Strength through unity.
    Strive Harder.
    Study the Alien, the better to kill it.
    Success is commemorated. Failure is merely remembered.
    Suffer not the Alien.
    That which is unknown and unseen always commands the greatest fear.
    The Cosmos cry out for salvation.
    The dead watch over us and guide us.
    The difference between heresy and treachery is ignorance.
    The Emperor knows, the Emperor is watching.
    The end justifies the means.
    The enemy of man lies in his own blood.
    The only true achievement is purity.
    The population needs deception, so deceive them.
    The road to purity is drenched in the blood of the martyred.
    The wage of negligence is utter destruction.
    The wise man learns from the deaths of others.
    There is no art more beautiful and diverse than the art of Death.
    There is no salvation without suffering.
    There is only the Emperor and he is our shield and protector.
    Though the artificers of Evil are many, a bolter round kills just as assuredly.
    Thought begets heresy: Heresy begets retribution.
    To live in peace is to know death, to die in battle is to know peace.
    Tolerance is a sign of weakness.
    Trust no one else and trust yourself less.
    Trust to your faith.
    War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.
    Wisdom is the beginning of fear.
    Zeal is no excuse.
    Prayer cleanses the soul, but pain cleanses the body.
    Sometimes the good must perish so that the rest survive.
    The ends always justify the means.
    The Known is but a shadow of the Knowable.
    The rewards of tolerance are treachery and betrayal.
    There is nothing to fear but failure.
    There is nothing to fear except fear itself.
    Tolerance is a sign of weakness
    Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows none.
    We are Last Chancers. If in doubt, shoot it.
    We ask only to serve.
    What can a man know of the Universe that knows not his own mind.
    What is the terror of death? That we die, our work incomplete. What is the joy of life? To die, knowing our task is done.
    What is your fate? My duty is my fate.

    Squats? Oh facepalm... Someone should houserule Stormtroopers or Navy armsmen for Space Hulk too.
    The Krandor 116th Airborne: Flying Arctic Rednecks..IN SPACE!!! Proud seller of time-space disruptions since 2010

    Default Squats

    As previously mentioned, the squats and 'Nids are for Advanced Space Crusade games, which also contains rules for all the marines from scouts to terminator. Tyranids get to have mind slaves in the form of bioconstructs, traitor marines, orks, & other stuff.

    The core races of Space Hulk are Marines, 'Stealer Cult, Chaos Traitors, and Eldar.

    Default Nice Models

    Could I possibly use the images of ure Ultramarines for a presentation in my college? I wont claim them as my own

  5. #5


    Sure, I don't mind at all. Enjoy.

  6. #6


    I love the old Tyranid Warrior models. Many fond memories of playing Advanced Space Crusade.
    Dark Eldar 4000pts, Eldar 2000pts, Dark Angels 2500pts, Tau 2000pts.

    Smile Tyranids

    Yeah, and since the Advance Space Crusade board & blip sets are perfectly compatible with the Space Hulk board pieces & blips, they are easy to integrate into any Space Hulk game as well.

    I have posted my rule-set (taken directly as much as possible from ASC rule book) for using them in another thread. Please take a look and enjoy!

    (I actually have 2 sets of Adv. Space Crusade, and one of them is unopened in the original shrink wrap. I'm waiting for a good enough excuse to break into the Tyranids & Scouts contained within....but so far I have enough to suit my purposes for now...)

    Default Imperial Fist Chapter

    I added my Imperial Fist Chapter (freshly painted after painstaking weeks...) to the list of armies above.

    I had to strip several of the models before starting from scratch.

    Vallejo acrylics, and Krylon clear gloss final coat. The weapons on the Power Armor and Terminator Standards are attached with tiny magnets for easy removal and swapping out. The Terminator shields and standards are the plastic variety found easily on ebay.

    Painting steps included:

    White Primer

    Yellow undercoat (2x) The shade was one darker than Sun Yellow, though I can't read it as the label ink has worn off.

    Wash w/ yellow & brown. Make sure to continually keep re-mixing the wash with your brush, as the darker color will settle near the bottom.

    Black detail undercoat. Every detail on the models get painted black before any sort of color goes on. This makes the colors pop and proves an 'undershadow' effect around the edges of details that is very visually appealing.

    Details. The skulls were the most time-consuming part of this one, as I wanted them to come out as best as possible. I mainly used a size 0 brush, but for some details I went even smaller (with the kind of micro brushes found at nail technician stores that they use for ultra-fine designs).
    Also, be sure not to get more than a tiny bit of paint on the brush tip, that way you won't drown any details, or fudge an area badly).


    Clear coat.

    Sounds easy, but probably took me 8-10 weeks working a steady bit at a time when I could.

    Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pics (posted above with other army pics).

    Glory & Faith for the Emperor's Servants!

    I've uploaded some pics done in better lighting for my Marines and Tyranids, including some new models (Zoats and Grabber-Slashers) that were added to my collection since I last posted these pics.

    Going to try to get a few more better lit pics of the other races when I get time.

    Thanks for looking!

  10. #10


    I have posted a few new pics of recently painted models, including Throned Genestealer Patriarch, a Harlequin Dreadnought, and others such a few scenes from Advanced Space Crusade. I had taken more than a year off painting, and had to do a couple hours of paint maintenance to get started again, but with a little water and acrylic extender / blending gel I was able to get about all of my paints in high performance order again.

    Please enjoy the pics!
