NetEpic Gold

NetEpic Gold is a massive project which I had the great pleasure and priviledge to work on as a layouter. The story dates back to the late 90’ies t´when Games Workshop decided to discontinue 2nd edition Epic and replaced it with the Epic 40.000 rules set. Many people felt that the new rules were too streamlined and lost a lot of the flavour from the old quirky special rules, so a yahoo group was set up to discuss and develop a continuation of the SM/TL era rules.

The rules has gone through many incarnations, usually as simple word documents, but back in 2005 Peter “Primarch” Ramos approached me, asking if I’d be interested in doing a fully illustrated and layouted version of the books, that would be on par with an official GW release. Personal distractions, such as work and university, not to mention rules revisions and the troubles of tracking down pictures of some of the more obscure units in the game, meant that the project has draggged on untill 2012. But now it is finally here. And although in retrospect there’s always a few things you feel you could have done differently, I am very happy with the result, which I hope will continue to inspire players to pick up the game for years to come. A great big thank you to Peter for coordinating this, and the entire NetEpic community for their contributions.

Considering that this project has been going on from the earliest yahoo groups, it is almost as old as the Internet itself, and stands as a wonderfull example of what a close knit community of passionate fans can achieve across borders when utilizing the newest technology.

Anyway, enough yappig. Here’s the books. Please note that some of these files are very large, so it may be better to save them to your harddrive before opening, rather than trying to open in a browser window. Also, make sure you visit netepic.org for further play aids.

    Thanks for breathing life into this fine game. I own all races, hundreds of units, titans, etc.

      Hi there and sorry for the late reply.
      I don’t check this place very often.
      Thanks for your kind words. I am afraid I haven’t got those card templates.

      Best regards
      Christian
