Introduction

What is NetEpic?

Games Workshop's Warhammer 40'000 universe is a background suitable for many games. The most famous one is Warhammer 40'000 (W40k), a wargame of small engagements between troop detachments, but others do exist, like Necromunda and Space Fleet. A W40k army is made of 28mm scale models, with usually several dozen miniatures on each side.

NetEpic is another wargame in this futuristic universe, but on a different scale often called "Epic scale". Each soldier model is roughly 6mm tall. With such small models, engagements on a tabletop can involve hundreds of soldiers and full tank companies. Moreover, this scale allows huge battle fortresses towering even the tallest buildings - Titans, Leviathan and such - to join the fray. The game focuses more on strategy, objectives and astute battle plans than on luck and individual heroes like W40k does.

NetEpic is free and open source. Optional rules allow fine-tuning of the game to suit any taste. You can have a look to NetEpic website here.
