    SPECIAL ORDERS
    There are six different special orders and each one allows a unit to perform better at something, such as gunnery or evasion, during its turn. A unit, regardless of size or composition, can only ever be on one special order at a time. The six special orders are:

    Surge Forward: A unit Surging Forward concentrates its efforts on producing an extra burst of speed, usually gaining an extra 2D6in of movement. Its weapons are reduced to half effectiveness and that ...

  5. Battle Fleet Gothic-style 40k: Introduction

    INTRODUCTION

    The idea behind this document was to adapt the simplified rules set of Battlefleet Gothic to the models and measuring conventions of Warhammer: 40,000.

    Note: This is a fan-created edition of the rules. The idea was to create a faster, more scale-able variation of 40k, addressing much of the major complaints about the 7th edition of that game.
