It's building a new game.

Think of a specialist game set in the 40k universe aka Necromunda or Gorkamorka, or Warhammers Mordheim.

It doesn't have to be that detailed though.

It's not a scenario competition.

Are we allowed to add in a sample game/written battle report?

So that some of the more "visual learners" can get a good understanding of the game?

Edit: By the "copyright" rules, I assume that we can't use unit names then, right (ie Predator, Ork Wartrukk, etc)?

Can't imagine why not, I mean if it's set in 40k or fantasy, why would we not be able to refference stuff within it?

Here's two names I've come up with;
Hive MasterMind
Big Meks Scrapheap Challenge

Should set the ball rollin

By copyright we mean not to copy GW's stats into your write up of the game. If its a predator just say "predator - as per the stats in Codex: Space Marines" and so on.

Great ideas though guys. These can be as detailed or as simple as you like.

Just remember, we're going to pile them all into a PDF download for others to enjoy at their clubs

you see i would love to enter this competition and have been working on a game recently that would be just perfect. sadly, as an amateur games designer, my rules are really very important to me and i can't just hand over the rights to a game i come up with. so sadly i will not be entering.

unless you want to change who has ownership of the games once submitted, that is.

why is this so? is there any commercial intention behind this? i wouldn't like seeing my idea getting ripped by a third party in order to make money. if there is no such thing i have a pretty good game conversion already on the ready.

There is no such thing as too many tanks.

So when does this have to be done by again?


All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

This is simply so we have the right to publish it as a pdf.

Any attempt by us to make money off this will result in us infringing GW's IP, remember these games are based in GW settings. Also you won't be able to sell anything you create and submit to us for the same reason.

All game ideas published in the pdf will credit the creator.

If you have any intention to release your own game then don't bother entering, this is for fun.
