Hello everyone, today i come to present you One Page 40k!

What is One Page 40k?

One page 40k is a single-page ruleset that you can play with your warhammer 40k miniatures. It serves as a great introduction to 40k for beginners, and as a way to play quick and easy games for veterans.

As of right now we have the core rules done, there are army lists and units for ALL armies, there are campaign rules and we released some armies made by the fans. We also have a couple other games already released such as Kill Team and Grimdark Racing, and we are working on much more!

There is a point where simplification becomes complication, and this approaches it, but at first glance does not cross it.

I would like to see a rule set, based on your rule set, that allows for a point of simplification whereby I can run any models from any ruleset. A system whereby I can create units as it were based on their fluff in a way that they will be balanced against one another. A system where I can take a squad of hero clicks against a squad of space marines allied with some warmachine shit...

You're on to something.

So after a couple people commenting on how the name is misleading to the size of the document, i have made a single-page version of this with no cover, army lists or special rules.

My idea would be to have a "basic" version (what i am posting now), and an "extensive" version (with cover page, intro, factions, special rules and advanced objectives).

What do you think?

Note that this is a first draft of this idea and that things will be tweaked

I have updated the blog with the latest version of the rules, the main difference is in layout and now you can also download the rules and armies separately. The cover was removed because there were concerns of copyright infringment, and we are looking for artists that could help us. Please tell me if you know anyone who might be interested at [email protected]

Here are the latest rules: http://onepagerules.wordpress.com/portfolio/one-page-40k-rules/

Wow! Awesome! I disagree with some of the rules you guys made, but really I'm glad somebody finally got around to making a new set of rules. I've seen suggestions floating around various boards but usually they get shot down because "There'd be 15 different versions!"
I also think "one page" idea is great!

One page is too long to read?
that really went over your head?

I've got to say I agree with what's been said. I can't really see the point in this. You've taken the 40k rules, made them slightly more complicated, and then condensed them into one page.

I guess if this is the game you want to play, more power to you.

Hey everyone, a little update from One Page Rules:

We recently decided to make our current WIP build of Kill Team available to the public, so you can download Kill Team v0.05 right now: http://onepagerules.wordpress.com/

Kill Team is a great way to play with just a handful of miniatures, and generally makes for very fast games with many heroic moments!

I have spent a few days going over this and having thought out everything afterwards my opinion is thus:
It's probably best to avoid this, nice try but no cigar

Hello everyone, today we bring you a fairly juicy update from One Page Rules.

Fist off we have updated our 40k and Kill Team rules. We have added a bunch of units and upgrades, and we fixed a couple exploits. We have also added 3 fan armies submitted by you guys, so that you can play with you Warpath and Inquisition miniatures. You can download them here: http://onepagerules.wordpress.com

Then we have finished up the first drafts of our Campaigns supplements, however they are still undergoing a lot of testing, so they can be found in the WIP section here: http://onepagerules.wordpress.com/wip/

We have also decided to open a forum after getting a ton of e-mails, which you can find here: http://onepagerules.proboards.com/

Finally we have been working on some exciting new projects such as our modular papercraft terrain and a space battles game. We are always looking for talented artists and designers who want to help out, so don't hesistate to contact us if you want to help at [email protected].

Next up we are going to focus on releasing the core rules for Fantasy, but more on that when it's ready... enjoy!

Today we bring you a small but exciting new game: Grimdark Racing!

Grimdark Racing is a racing game inspired by mario kart and crash team racing which allows you to play with up to 8 friends, challenging them to a deadly race.

So get your awesome vehicle conversions together, create some crazy tracks, and have fun: http://onepagerules.wordpress.com/portfolio/grimdark-racing-v0-07/
