By some miracle I actually got a copy of it before this whole mess.

I'll ask the folk over at Teardown if its ok to re-theme it to Alien Assault.

Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.

The tip is no way related to the removed file that no one sent me, I just appreciate the fact that you are here on BGG stating that you did not download the file or save it and will not send it on to people who email you begging and pleading with you for a copy that you do not have or something to that effect... what were we talking about?

But, I'm always open to yak about stuff. Send me an email and, ya know, we'll just talk.

Re: Space Hulk in my Pocket has been removed


As the designer of SHimP 2.0 I fully agree with GW's lawyers that a game that simply takes place in a side pocket their 40K universe and does not use a single actual rule from the original game should be removed from BGG.



It would be unwise to create any new fans of a game that is impossible to obtain except for eBay at double the actual cost. God forbid GW actually do something adverse to their motto of "screw the customer at all costs".



In accordance with GW's wishes I have deleted all files concerning SHimP 2.0 from my computer. So please do not request a copy of the PDF that is of higher quality, greater detail and brighter colors than those originally posted here at the Geek (due to file size limitations) from me.



Please, do not send me a PM requesting a copy of SHimP as I have deleted every file in my possession because GW deserves our respect out of the fair practices they whole heartily endorse and show to their customers.

Dear Malechi,

If I were to hypothetically thank you for NOT sending me the file and telling me to NOT print it since I don't have it, would you accept a geek gold tip too?

I cannot, in good conscience, tell you that I love the art and find the rules very succint and well drafted since I DON'T have the file with me.

In any case, I will thank you for NOT wasting my time with a petty game about something illegal and highly dangerous.

I made another version of a Space Hulk in my Pocket, perhaps I'll redesign it as Generic Space Corridor version (GSCimP?). It's a strict one to one port of Zimp with a more serious tone of the Space Hulk background. Items are commands, the player is in the position of the monitoring and guiding officer, instead of a character there is a force, not with HP but with a Formation that weakens with each enemy attack and may get broken. Formation is regained not by covering but regrouping and so on.. Mail me if you are interested in a version for personal use.

Ok, so help me out here: Did GW trademark their copyright infringement of the Aliens movie IP? Because I'm a little confused here. Or, since they failed to enforce their copyright when Blizzard blatantly ripped it off for Starcraft, can we use "Starcraft Space Marines" vs "Zerg", as long as Sigourney Weaver (or an non-trademark infringing likeness of her) is the plucky leader of the non-Alien forces on the corridor hunt?

Don't get me wrong, I love all three IPs, I'm just trying to get my 'IP infringement' score card straight.

Please stay where you are. A Thunderbolt is being dispatched to your location with an Imperial Inquistor GW lawyer to flay the skin from your obviously heretical bones discuss this matter.

SH actually bears little resemblance to Aliens, or at least used to. GWs designs are progressively drifting to the Giger-rip-Off side where originally they were a fairly original concept, Reptile/Insect hybrids with a touch of UFO abduction/breeding tossed in for good measure.

Starcraft on the other hand is far too simmilar. I'd guess at least one of the design crew is a former 40k player who had some goor and/or bad experience with GW.

And in the end. Aliens and subsequent in the series are rip-offs of Gigers designs as they claimed that the alterations to the heads in Aliens constituted a "new design" and thus they didnt owe Giger any royalties. And the movie companies just about got away with it too.

But the tale goes even deeper as about 4 years after 40k came out I was optioned to do the rules for an RPG based on a Marvel comic revival of an older series. The new alien menace was verbatim the Tyrranids in everything but looks.

And in the end Alien is just a remake of It! The Terror from Beyond Space merged with Planet of the Vampires.

And so it goes.

I'm not interested in these files at all, regardless of how good the quality might have been had they still been available.

I am SO glad that I never saw this in time to actually download it becuase it looks so horrible that I would never grovel on my hands and knees to be sent a copy so please...whatever you do...don't send me a copy of this game for fear that my eyes might start bleeding at the sheer sight of it. My computer would probably explode should I ever download such a thing anyway.
