Hello fellow LOers. As of late I have been complaining a lot about the core rules and since my motto always is "don't complain unless you can do it better" I'm working on a little piece I hope you will be able to buy in a store near you by early 2011 at the very latest.
for this I will need a few willing test subjects to assist play testing the damn thing.
All armies and any game size. Specifically interesting are horde IG and SM armies. I can email you the rule book if you PM me.
here is what it does:
1 it gives you an integrated turn where both sides can resolve shooting more or less simultaneously.
2 it drastically changes movement.
3 it adds tactical depth beyond deployment.
4 it makes cc scary as hell (may need a nerf that I'm working on)
5 it is the adult version of 40k
6 it has hidden objectives which is awesome
here is what I need more input on:
1 cc vs shooting balance (is it really broken?)
2 how long does it take to play vs standard 40k
3 is it "funner"?
4 are the 6 standard objectives balanced?
5 how does the altered FoC work with different factions? (how badly can you power game this? and are the slots way too cheap or just too cheap?)
Me and my dev crew are curently testing this with IG, SM, CSM and nids. We have Orkz and crons inbound during next week.
all testers will of course end up in the huge thank-you note on the finished thing!
this thread will be used as a dev log with patch notes.
if you wanna send the rules to me ill look them over and ill go from there. i got black templars, tau, orks, and imperial guard.

The lawyers will find you, and they will tear you a new one. More businesses get "Cease and Desist" than "We like your ideas".
I've been pondering a similar idea for about a year, mostly concentrating on unit and weapon stats, though I have conjured up some very delectable ideas. Maybe this'll finally get me around to posting all that crap now...
Send me a copy, I'd love to see your rules.
I'm not selling it to anybody. I'm giving it to GW and they can sell it.
testing is now nearing its end and the damn thing works but it's not doing well enough in the fun department so we are revamping it for retesting.
Well Nova, I would like to look over this. Whilst I probably cannot playtest it (I rarely get to game anymore), I can imagine you will have come up with some interesting rules.
Rork: In the dark future of the 41st millennium there is only friendship.
Fenrir: and magic.
Kaiser-: My Little Chaos Marine, Friendship is Heresy?
I'll tidy up the PDFs and email them to everybody who wants a piece of it if you give me your email in a PM. Expect this to take a few days as I'm also providing 24/7 support for Aurora atm.
