Overview

One interesting feature of Epic: Armageddon is that, unlike previous editions of the game and other games produced by Games Workshop, the development of the game was conducted in an open way with 'trial' rules published on the Epic 'Playtest Vault' and feedback solicited from gamers via the associated playtesters forum.

This collaboration with the community has continued with the development of further army lists. The Epic: Armageddon rulebook contains the core rules for the games, and army lists for Space Marines, the Armageddon Steel Legion Imperial Guard regiment and Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka's Ork War Horde as they were fielded in the Third War for Armageddon.

The 4th edition also includes rules and charts for the classic line of Titan, including the Ork Mega-Gargant and the Imperator Titan. These were previously omitted from intermediate rulebook editions, although their use is difficult given the deliberate absence of a points value befitting a unit of such scale.

Various armies are supported in this edition including -

In addition to the products supplied by Games Workshop, Forgeworld also supply additional models for Epic Armageddon, including Tau and Imperial Navy forces.
