In general I would've hoped FFG would've done this from the onset.....that would've been ideal for cross import of races and characters. I am intrigued with what you have come up with but cannot access it from work so it will have to wait until later before I can glimpse at what you've come up with.
Other things that would've been streamlined (and/or fixed more rapidly) would've been things like Rapid and Automatic Fire off the top of my head. I've read gaming groups using the rules from other systems in DW because the DW rules were broken or hodge-podging rules from other games to fix rules in DW. Finding a conversion matrix for importing races and characters from other games into DW compatible ones and so on. Not sure if the blame lies with FFG or GW on the different rules/systems for the different RPG's. A singular system being developed from the inception would've made integration SOOOO much more user friendly than what has materialized. Perhaps with the 2nd Gen of DH and so on will address that.

Hmm, not sure why but the link isn't working for me. But this sounds awesome.

Might need a Gmail or Google+ account, it works for me. Just a guess.
Left out Space Wolves Faction and the special rules regarding Space Wolf Scouts (Veterans rather than initiates like other Astartes). They start off with off with a few extra traits and skills and a balance factor of only 800 XP's to spend (initially) compared to other Marines. Just a quick glance so far, will look deeper a bit later and respond further.

It is working now. I am not sure what that was about.

Because Space Wolves are going to be a fairly special case and I haven't got any amongst my group, I've been lazy and left them out for now. Needless to say, their unique organisational structure will mean they'll get a different badge layout to begin with.

For those interested - this is the first run of the Space Puppies rules that I'll be adding in. Still need to double check some of the balances and run it past the Space Wolf fluff monkies I know. If any of you are Space Wolf fluff monkies and have issues/comments/praise to throw at me, let me know.

Those are some very cool, interesting rules. It gives me a few ideas for new additive rules in my DW rebuild.
