Looks great!

I seriously can't believe that GW isn't doing something like this - especially considering how the FW Badab War books are all about boarding actions!

Yeah, I have had my eye on that for a while. Need to finish up a space hulk campaign and see if has replayability first however...

I might be remembering this wrong but I think that the price has gone up quite a bit on these since the last time I saw them.

Why use those forgeworld rules when there are a the spacehulk rules out there (in a number of different guises).
40k rules have never been a favourite of mine, even though I love the background fluff.

@Azrael

He's referring to this http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff

Really surprising terrain release of bigger-than-space-hulk board sections that took me completely by surprise! =-x

So why use those at that stupidily high price when you can use the ones in the original post?

There's also options from Game Craft Minis for interiors (I've no history with them personally but people I've talked to dig them) http://store.gcmshop.com/category/130-large-scales-25mm-30mm.aspx

My personal fav however is from JR Minis. They've got some "oddness" in that they've got the decorations on the outside on the rooms/hallways only. So your know "it looks perty to you" but you'll need to sink additional $ for individual interior panels to add. In addition you're going to need to work out a grid pattern for squares.
