EDIT- Of course it will probably be Blood Angels, but the chance to be Deathwing would kick bum!

Awww yeah! The Dark Angel's Deathwing Terminators would kick so much arse! I could have sworn the original PC version had them in it, or at least they were on the cover in their white armour.

You know what, Now that you mention it, I'm sure the fluff around the game was all about the Deathwing in the first version of it. Didn't they make a whole mythos about Genestealers being the reason that they have white armour instead of the normal green DA armour? Though I could be thinking of the Dark Millennium box. (The old expansion that had all of the Psycker cards and extra templates and stuff)

Snip

Blood Ravens also use the red teardrop emblem, plus the bleached bone pauldrons. I was just making a joke that the Blood Ravens had been "gifted" some of the Angels' power armor and hastily painted their own colors on top.

Yes, but the belt and knee insignia are specifically Blood Angels.

Also, I know, I saw your edit.

Sort of. The first Space Hulk (board game) was Blood Angels. The Deathwing expansion introduced the white colouring for Deathwing termies due to the genestealer in vasion of one of their recruiting worlds in a short story, though at the time the DAs still had Black armour, not green. Genestealer was the expansion that introduced all the Psychic stuff.

The 1st Space Hulk computer game used the same missions as the Space Hulk Boardgame (IIRC) but used Dark Angels. The second space Hulk computer game used Blood Angels.

Also apologies for double post

Oh god, yes, YES! If this is good... I love me some 40k, and I love me some RTS. Yessss~!

Zykon TheLich:
very explanatory snip

Cool! Cheers for that mate. Looks like I had a few different things all mixed up together. I haven't played the first space hulk video game, but have played the second one. I honestly always preferred Chaos Gate and Dark Omen for GW PC Games.

Heard about this a while ago, apparently its heavily inspired by X-Com Enemy Unknown, which can only be a good thing in my book. My only worry, is that it could get a little repetitive fighting the same enemy over and over.

apparently everyone including the developers dont know there was a space hulk video game years ago.

I actually own that game for the sega saturn.
On topic: how is this news?
