With the 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000 now settling in, we’ve revised our Recon Squad skirmish rules and associated Legacies narrative campaign to the new rules. The updated Recon Squad core rules and Legacies missions were used at this used NOVA Open wargaming convention with a large number of players, to great success. Give them a try if you’re looking for some quick, intense 40k firefights!
After using and refining the mechanics and missions over a number of events, we are very excited to release Legacies, an unofficial skirmish campaign for Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000!
Legacies builds on our Recon Squad rules for fast-playing, tactical 40k skirmishing. Players choose a particular specialty for their squad and work toward a relevant personal objective over the course of four thematic missions. They then all meet in the Cataclysm, a climactic team battle wrapping up the campaign.

As part of its new, energized release schedule of late, this past weekend Games Workshop put out a new boardgame: Deathwatch Overkill. The box is filled with amazing miniatures and what seem to be a fast-playing, fun and quick set of rules. What it doesn’t include are boxes to organize and protect the two card decks inside the main box. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Follow the link for PDF patterns to print, cut out, and assemble tuckboxes for both.

We’re proud to officially release our unofficial skirmish variant for Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000: Recon Squad!
Recon Squad is a simple ruleset for fast, very tactical games using all the standard 40k mechanics and armies but with individual models fighting it out as solitary heroes in elaborate battlefields. A lengthy discussion on the design considerations is up on tjkopena’s blog, and the full rules are a short PDF available on the website.
