NetEA: Epic Armageddon by and for the community

Rules

NetEA Tournament Pack

The NetEA Tournament Pack goes back to the idea of a living rulebook when Epic was seeing active development from Games Workshop's Fanatic division. It contains:

  • The official Epic Armageddon game rules and all of the errata. All is stressed here as some errata are missing from the rulebook PDF that GW published.
  • The most up-to-date FAQ available, essentially an expanded version of the last FAQ published by Games Workshop. Each Q&A is a footnote in the appropriate section of the rules.
  • All of the NetEA Approved tournament army lists and any rule extensions and Q&A's that accompany them. NetEA Approved army lists are tournament ready and balanced against one another using the Epic tournament game rules. These lists vary slightly (point-cost and unit-stat-wise) from the official lists due to community feedback.

Official Rules

In addition to the original printed forms of the rulebook and Swordwind supplement, Epic's official rules were made available for free by Games Workshop and occasionally updated with errata (the printed books were never updated). However these PDFs were removed when the website was updated in 2014. They can now be downloaded here. Here's a breakdown on what each PDF contains:
