I would like to see a better integration of All three systems. It would be amazing to run a seamless campaign involving all three systems. If anyone is interested in a collaberative effort, let me know.
Unfortunatly Epic is just large 40k in fluff terms
BFG and epic is fine
BFG and 40k is fine
EPic and 40k? not really

I don't have a problem with the level of integration they have now. IMHO, the only problem with EPIC and Battlefleet Gothic is that hardly anyone plays them, and it's very expensive to buy EPIC Tau models at the moment.
Should this even be here?
What rules are you developing?
How do you plan to make a game seemless, when professional games designers try and fail all the time?
i agree, its not really rules development so far.
Do you have any ideas as to how to integrate the three systems? and is it necessary? They are three levels of combat within the same universe, for example you could run an Epic campaign, with a BFg campaign going on in the planets orbital system- and with 40k being used to represent small scale skirmishes behind enemy lines which would they have ramifications to the Epic battles- there you go a starting point!

Yes, in an integrated campaign, 40K battles would be intertwined with epic and BFG in the following ways:
1) The determination of engagements. Epic would set the stage on the strategig level, and 40K would provide detailed engagement results on the tactical level. this would reflect that even though a major engagement may fall to one side or the other, the various confrontations on the tactical level can go the other way.
2) Reinforcements, Ifd the planet is blockaded, reinforcements will be hard if not impossible to get.
More to follow.
This doesn't belong here.

And I dont know... a seamlessly integrated system might be to much for normal play, but since GW has a worldwide 40k campaign every (other?) year, they should try to integrate epic and BFG into it...

How about integrating 40k with something like that old "battle for armageddon" board game. Each counter could represent, say, 1000 points, so instead of rolling a dice to see which counters are removed, you have a 40k battle. Didn't there used to be something like that for Warhammer Fantasy? I think it was called "Mighty Empires"?
I think the only way to integrate all the systems is to have it happen over a large campaign with armies fighting over a solar system with a few planets. Gothic would be for getting to a planet, initial stages of invasion can one army stop transport ships from getting to a planet. Althoug warhammer 40k could be used for ship invasions. Epic would be for fighting over areas on a larger scale, large cities etc. Warhammer would be used for contesting objectives like a space port or command post etc. Based on how an army does in one section would dictate army points and mission for the next game. However teh campaign could get pretty complicated and might be hard to work on a larger scale.
