 It's late and so we've reached the point of the night where I come up with really stupid ideas.

Has anyone here ever used Dark Heresy (or any of the other games) for a small-scale wargame kinda thing instead? I know that these games are derivative of 40k and Necromunda, but I've got the thought in my head and it just isn't leaving. Having myself and a mate, with five Guardsmen (something like three regular troopers, a sniper, and a heavy stubber dude) on each side and some nice terrain… It sounds fun! All of those clever little actions that don't see enough use (Cautious Advance, Overwatch) would be very handy!

My apologies to anyone I offend; FFG staff, playtesters, and forum users alike. 


Please check out my Dark Heresy to Only War conversion! You can find it on the main Only War forum. I'm always looking for more people to playtest it!

Well, I'd use the Only War rules for starters.

But I really do think that Necromunda or Inquisitor are better suited. Both free from GW :)
