A couple of years ago, my good friend Steg and I came up with a stripped down version of NetEpic, suitable for fast, casual play, training, or tournaments, based around small 1,000 point armies. A number of normal NetEpic game rules are suspended in order to make the gameplay quick and easy.

More recently, there's been quite a bit of interest at No Mans Land in starting up with Epic, so I decided to commit the rules of our game to paper, and am calling it NetEpic 1K.


Comments and suggestions appreciated!

Looks good to me! Takes me back to 1st edition Space Marine where it was a fight to the death, no objectives (but a bit more complicated than this if my memory serves me correctly). If it helps get more people to give Epic a go, more power to you sir!

Looks good.
People can then add the extra bits to the rules as they learn.
I don't think it would be much of a stretch to add VPs and objectives, say 20 at this level with 3 objectives on the board to fight over.
