I wonder if anybody here already uses the 40k Module for Vassal to play 40k games through the Internet?

more Screenshots and the english FAQ is also here:

Here is a preview of our new Imperial Fists Sprite set:


(the version in the module is real yellow, nothing greenish :grin:).

This looks really interesting and I would love to try it.

But the first link is broken and I don't speak German lol(The other two links go right to the main forum page and not to the threads they should.).

Do you have any other links or info about this?

Yes, these module exist too, but they we not developed very far. I think the best other Warhammer-module is the Battlefleet Gothic module wich many people like. Did you try that too? Perhaps you try our module too, then you can see if its better or not.

If you have a question just ask. There is also an FaQ but the server of the forum where it is hosted is down right now.

I think I got it down now.

I would love to try this out tonight or tomorrow if anyone's interested. I have a 40K Tourney to go in 2 Hours and I may not get back until real late.

I should be back around 10PM at the Very Latest. (About 14 Hours from the time of this post.) I'll leave a post saying when I'm ready for a game.

I'm fiddling with it...
It's very clunky feeling, and it feels like it needs to be run on something with a much bigger monitor. I can't have the board up if I want to look at any of the controls, and the whole board doesn't show without scrolling. and I can;t find anything to shrink the crap down to f it my screen properly. Too many pannels and windows and whatnot.

But the main issue seems to be out of date army lists

I'm keen to give this a try.

If you guys are looking for a forum to "house" your module i'm happy to create one for you. It might be a good focal point to promote things to a wider audience.

Send me a PM if you're interested.

(on a side note is Librarium down atm?)

40k Vassal tournaments anyone? :grin:

Most times you will find someone in the lobby. If you want I may be up to a game in the next days.

Yes, indeed the bigger the monitor the better, same with all computergames espaccally strategy. But there is a zoom in and out button at the top of the ,,table".
Some spritesets are really obsolete, in the next version (due within this week) already has a lot of new sprite sets (fitting the newest rules and better looking) like the imperial Fists set I showed above.

Jezlad
Thats very kind of you. Thank you. I hope you like it.

I'm on now if anyone wants to give it a go.

How about a small game with 750 Points on a 4'x4' Urban table to figure out things?

We can PM lists after agreement so there is no confusion on who has what. I'll be playing my fluff SM Chapter. (Though it will be using the Ultramarine models obviously since they don't have black and purple SM lol.)


EDIT: I made a game called "Heresy-Online" so if anyone wants to join meet me there.

EDIT2: Nvm lol. I have to go somewhere so I can't try it out right now. I'll be on tomorrow.

I know it has a zoom in/out feature for the map, but I can't fit the map pannel on the screen and still be able to see much of the rest of the interface. I know my old laptop isn't exactly ideal, but a lower rez setting would be handy.

I tried it and it just doesn't catch my interest. Too complicated to just jump into I think. Once you learn it I can see it being cool but in all honesty I would rather just play for real.

That said, online tournaments with this among Heresy members WOULD be damn cool :eek:k:

Yes this is always an issue, but after some games you will get used to it and find a good fitting, I also use an old laptop.

I will try to dig them out. There is no Fantasy Module right now.

The Wraithlord
In no way is this intended to replace the real tabletop game, its for a battling, when you have nobody else, or aganist people you know from forums or something like that.
And the learning curve is very short. After 2 games you should be very familiar with the software.
