40K Table Top for PC?

Hi everyone

Iím just wondering if there is a Table Top PC version of Warhammer 40K? Or a game that is similar to it? Also Turn based not real time turn base.
Iím looking for something to practice mostly strategy against the computer.

Cheers

With Vassal don't you have to play against a human online? I'm more looking for something off line.

"Chaos Gate" is a round based 40k strategy game. Was released around '99 and looks a little dusty. But its so awesome, im playing it again atm. You are controlling a bunch of Ultramines, fighting against the forces of a Chaos Lord. Has a very good story, nice videos and awesome voice overs.

Problem is: it wont run under Windows XP / Vista.
Even if you get it to run in compatibility mode, you will experience tons of bugs.
For Windows 2k I can give you a workaround, editing the registry.

For Win XP/Vista you need "Virtual PC 2007 SP1" (freeware from Microsoft) and a copy of Windows 98SE for creating a virtual machine.
Easy to set up and runs very stable.

And dont waste your time getting it to run stable under XP / Vista, I spent days on that, there is no fix...

Chaos gate isn't worth the hassle to be honest. It's just as easy to go to vassal foundhere

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

I absolutely love the game, so it was worth every hour to get it work

Never heard of Vassal before, looks interesting, will give it a try.

A tabletop AI 40k game doesn't exist and likely never will.

GW wouldn't risk their business by releasing it - instead we get shit like DoW...
