Hey! I think I resemble that remark! *sips on his kool aid.*
I'm definitely intrigued by this game, I must admit. I don't own any edition of Space Hulk, although I have enough 40k minis I could probably play a reasonably close approximation using Doom tiles and whatever edition of 40k rules I have lying around for combat. I'm generally unwilling to buy Space Hulk (especially at the ridiculously steep prices I keep seeing) because of this, but Death Angel looks like it could do the trick for much cheaper and without using as much storage space on my shelf.
And since the artwork depicts Blood Angels, it's like they come pre-painted just for me. =)
Having said all that, I think I'll wait until the game is actually out and I see some reviews before I go out and buy it. I love FFG games in general, but I'm not quite raving zealot enough to allocate the money before I know for sure what it's like.

The pre-published items on the game are great, but to be honest. There is nothing like a good old fashioned heated Frag toss on the Space Hulk board. I bought two copies when the third edition came out. Still haven't had the chance to put them together in a five person game. I will buy this one too. But just bring on the genestealers, my marines are ready.
When we are not playing Dragonstar, we play Death Angel or Tannhauser!
