Hey everyone, the issue is that I just haven’t had time to familiarize myself with the differences between 7th and 8th editions. If anyone can provide a good primer on this — with maybe some ideas on what current Solo Heresy rules don’t make sense in 8th — I’d be happy to update it.

@Abaddon: Thanks! The latest version is the most current, although I'd like to do a big update for 8th edition.

Ah. I never looked at the orks, thank you for informing me.

@[Katls] Kommandant Frisk: In the forward, I was referring to the Ork "Natural Instincts" rules in Epic 40K, which govern how an Ork unit becomes autonomous when separated from its Nob. You can find these described here:

It would be interesting to adapt the Solo Heresy rules for use in Epic 40K, although a bit tricky due to the emphasis in Epic on keeping units in formation. But I think it would be possible if you applied the Natural Instinct rules described above to govern movement, at the cost of a more chaotic game.

So you mentioned in the forward that there were similar, offical rules for Epic 40k, but I can't seem to find them. I would love to practice agaisnt an automated opponent while I got more familiar with the ruleset. Regular Warhammer 40k is cool, but I'd love to actually run massive armies (i.e. a titan legion) without bogging the entire thing down and destroying the balance of the game.

On Solo Heresy itself, this is a great tool to help someone new play against eachother or if you want to represent a hostile NPC faction in a narrative campaign. Good work.
