Hi guys, I've created a series of 40K platoon lists for Chain of Command. I've also written down some of my thoughts and additions/rules changes to CoC to make it work better for 40K.

Ive made lists for Space marines/scouts, Tau, Imperial Guard, Necrons and Admech Skitarii. I've begun working on ones for Eldar, Orks and Chaos marines.

I've only playtested Tau versus guard. it was a really close match, but the tau managed to eke out a win.


Thoughts? Questions?

Very interesting ! Have you any thoughts on how you will handle initiative?

Chain of command has a simultaneous close combat system, so no, i won't be handing initiative at all. I'm not particularly fond of mechanics where one side fights first anyway.

Very very interesting. I am very attracted to 40k models but not the game.

So the most elite close combat troops will fight equally with Imperial Guard troopers? Doesn't feel right …

I suspect that there are other rules that will give the SM an advantage over IG.
