Never seen or owned any edition of Space Hulk unfortunately, but at a guess probably about an inch. You can likely find more information - or a better way to estimate the sizes - from the Space Hulk BoardGameGeek page, where there are plenty of images, video reviews, etc. Not sure if the sizes may vary between the editions. I'd assume not, but you never know!
Thanks gents. I found a clear picture from the net of a Terminator on a tile. I know the Terminators have 40 mm bases, so, I estimated the size of the grid to be a bit smaller than 40 mm -> 30 mm. Grid highlighted in green.
So, I have made mine 30 mm. At the moment, I have crammed several tiles onto one piece of A4, but if I have enough white space around them, they cam be scaleable. Here's the basic corridor: Corridor 6x2 30mm.pdf (23.2 KB) (PDF file)

Nice looking set there. When I get the chance, I'll post some pics that I did of a Space Hulk set in 15mm scale. I have a whole tackle box filled with parts that I scaled in GIMP and glued onto some sticky-backed foam. I made the models of the SM and Genestealers from a game that I can't quite remember right off the top of my head, but you will be able to see them when I post them.
Edit: Going back through the threads, I found that I had already posted pics of it here.
Here is the link to take a look at the pics I did way back then.
2nd Edit: You can also make the grid any size you want to. If you want to stay true to the actual game format, I think the size is 40mm. I've done various attempts at anywhere from 15mm to 52mm sizes.

There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.
Before, when I googled space hulk tiles, I think most o what I found were people's own made ones - many had 2x2 squares, like mine, and so were quite elaborate.
But seeing Parduz's and regoogling 1st edition, I see they are quite basic.
While I do have GW's WH40k First Strike started set (with very unfinished figures...), I'm using Don Glewwe's Beer & Pretzels Space Marines rules for an intro in to wargaming for my kids and to get back into the WH40K feeling. Years ago, when I was given a bunch of space marine figures, I was planning on a Soviet Space Infantry theme, and painted them read. I then took a shine to the Blood Angels chapter and bought some Tyranids for them to fight against. I had originally used my son's Gormiti figures and a handful of Moomins. It was well after I got the Tyranins, that I saw that the original Space Hulk game had Blood Angels vs Tyranids.
Next, I'll see how well I can make them interlocking...
 I found a length of corridor on the net, from first edition, and have been playing around a bit - I found a way to add detail, like the stains, though I need to make them more opaque, as they print up lighter than they look on the screen.

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
