Tried to respond to the last thread on this matter but it's too old and the forums won't let me, so I'll have to start a new one...
Basically I once read these rules and liked them but obviously these days they are almost impossible to find. Just to start with, if anyone has a copy I would GREATLY appreciate if you could send it to me, either here if you can send files here or through email if someone wants to contact me I can pass you my email address. All I remember was for 35 points I think it was, you could take any Imperial or Chaos Battlecruiser-Battleship and make it a VBB with all the space marine rules, but I remember nothing past that. I've even heard you could do it with the PLANET KILLER, but if someone ever tried that in our gaming group I'd have to shove their model where the sun doesn't shine as an example to others.
Secondly... were the rules considered official legal rules and the two accompanying fleet lists legal? Or were they considered by GW to be experimental rules?
If they were considered fully legal at one point I'd like to put it up to my group to vote on letting them in as options for SM fleets, and if not they'd still be nice for friendlies.
Technically they're experimental rules, like Chapter Approved and thesuchlike.
Anyway, VBBs can be any Imperial or Chaos Battleship or Grand Cruiser (the 10-hit metal one, not the plastic heavy cruisers), but costing a few more points to represent the Marine crew. But not the Planet Killer. That'd be the most utterly rediculous thing ever suggested.
If I have the PDF for these rules, am I allowed to say I'll email it to people and not get the site in trouble over copyright crap? If it's legit, anyone who wants it can have it (as I have not seen any links to it, on the GW site or elsewhere).
Thank you anyway, and yes you can send it to others... in fact I found out off the official GW SG forums it is still avaliable on the yahoo battlefleet gothic group in their downloads supposdly, though with finding out it IS experimental, I'll probably seek it out with a little less vigor.
Besides in the meantime I came up with a nice Armagedon mixed fleet list I like, so I got some variety with my SM fleet which is what I wanted ;-)
