short answer:

it is a game set in the small corridors of a space hulk (large space ship) that pits the genestears against the deathwing terminators.

it was a very cheap and useful way to stock up on both stealers and terminators. They also made it into a sucessful computer game way back in the day.

Unlikely. It is very old, your best bet would be Ebay and a lot of luck. Be prepared to pay through the nose for it, complete sets are rather rare.

The original cardstock maps only permit 28mm bases, the new ones are too big for it. But there is an online version of it - I will find it again and post the link in the AM if you'd like...

That's Space Quest, if there's chaos marines in it. And yes, Space Hulk and space Quest both made it to the computer, butthe original games were boardgames. With miniatures.

Yep, there was a game made of Space Hulk, I have the playstation 1 version, and it's really rather good. But yes, I am yet to work out how a Chaos Marine in power armour takes more bolter shots than a loyal marine in terminator armour.

Yea, right. :P

All I know is that they caused much, much frustration in in an otherwise great game.
