I was lucky enough to pick up Space Hulk and a few add ons for free a few years back, i used to referee it for my son and nephew we all loved it.
As a fan and player of Deathwatch, (long term Black Templar Assault Marine) I can't wait for the new scenario book to come out.
I don't buy "adventure books" ever, between the price tags and the imaginarium inside my head, I stay away.
But something as iconic to the universe as a Space Hulk would be totally worth the buy, also the statblocks for things that could be used elsewhere add to the value for me.
Are genestealers already documented in the books? I only have the Core Rulebook and Errata right now and I haven't made it past the armoury chapter.
I wish I still had the time and imagination I had when I was younger, nowadays I can't wait for adventures to be published.
Source books are ok, but i prefer the adventures. I find I can more easily adapt and add to an adventure plot than make up an entire scenario.
I become very self critical when writing, I wish i had the ability to 'wing it' as some of my peers do.
I'm have a similar mindset with published adventures - I prefer to come up with my own adventures - but I still buy them all. I view them, weirdly, as a MTG player might view a stack of booster packs: a chance to get new things to add to the game. In this case I mean new adversary profiles, and the first thing I do with an adventure book is flip to the NPC's & Adversaries section to see what we 'get' with this book.
Genestealers (and a lot of Tyranid units) are located in Mark of the Xenos. All the Tyranid units that weren't covered in Mark of the Xenos are covered in The Jericho Reach.

There are no female Space Marines. Don't believe me?
Gender & Appearance
Due to the special nature of the zygotes that make up a Space Marine's geneseed, all Space Marines are male. - Deathwatch, Core Rulebook, Page 28.
So enough with the Female Marine threads…
