Hi all, just in case you missed my post in the Legion Bombard topic, I'm issuing a challenge to hobbyists to help create rules for Heresy Era units that don't currently have rules in 40k.

The end goal is to create a usable rule set for cool models, that will hopefully be acceptable for your groups to try out.

Come on down and join the discussion!

In the operations of war, [...] the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army ...

I am in.  But not in the creation of rules.  I will help test rules out.  I happen to have played numerous games of 40K with 30K Mechanicum units.  The idea actually came from Bolter & Chainsword, over a year ago.  I have a complete Mechanicum army and got so tired of waiting on GW to make rules for them.  In my research I came across this forum topic:




I can personally testify that these rules are very balanced and reasonable.  Not overpowered and very well executed along the lines of theme and staying parallel to 40K Adeptus Mechanicus


I will be doing a battle report with them in two weeks.  They are my 2nd favorite army.  Hopes this helps out a lot of the 30K Mechanicum players!
