You can download the VASSAL wargaming application from this link here, and the 40K module from this link here. There is a new group of people working on this module, you can check the bugfixes, download the latest release, and keep up with plans for future revisions here: http://www.vassal40k.info

Here is a link to some premade maps..You load them as a saved game, there might be an error that is was saved with a previous version, but it will work. Also, if the scatter die doesn't work right you can replace it from the models tab.

Here is a link to an old user guide, some of the options have changed, and the screens don't look exactly the same, but there is a lot of basic information there that will help you get a feel for the module.

Rules:
Time period: until February 14th, Valentine's Day.

Army composition: you start with a Core (that you must take every game) of 900 to 1050 points; and a free section of 450-600 points, enough to make your total list no more than 1500 points. On January 1st, you can tweak your core.

Army list: Core + enough points to get you up to 1500.

Allowed Armies: All standard 40k armies (No Forge World)
Map: There are about 36 different maps included with the VASSAL package above. Randomly pick one to play on. Some of the maps have terrain and cover saves already determined. If not, agree with your opponent before the game how you want to play it.
Mission and Deployment: Use the VASSAL button.

How to play:
This is a challenge league, anyone can challenge another active player. However, they cannot play those players again until they play against every other currently active player. Challenges are valid for 72 hours (give or take the time it takes me to notice). If the challenge has not been accepted in that time the challenger will receive 1 point. If a player refuses/ignores/doesn't notice 2 challenges in a row they will be marked inactive, until they issue a challenge again. If you already have a game you are setting up you can freely decline a challenge, but you do not have to.

Scoring: 1 point for a draw, 2 points for a win.

Rule disputes: If something crops up in a game that cannot be conclusively settled, post it here and I'll make a ruling on how it should be played within the league.

Anything that needs to be further clarified? Did I leave anything important out?

When you signup please post your faction, time zone, core list, and the best day and time for you to play.

..........................Faction.......Time Zone

    Alright. Let's see how this goes. I think my core is slightly over 1K, but I'm going to compensate in my extras

    It made me very sad to not be able to have assault cannons on everything.

    So I haven't played with tiny men since 2nd edition sometime. I've got the new books and have read them and have been working on repairing/augmenting my old stuff, but haven't played a game in forever. I also have never used vassal, although I managed to successfully install it (and promptly felt like I was back in the bad old days of VB6 programming once I ran it :P). Anyway, how noob friendly are we here? Is this "for me"? :)

    You'll need to spend an hour or so familiarizing yourself with it, but you don't have to spend several hundred dollars on an army. That said, no third dimension.

    Now, question, with the rest of the points, can I increase the size of those squads or just add new squads?

    Wow, great question. You can use the points for anything, since it is a free block.

    Also I have never seen anyone take guardians using this codex, I am interested to see how they do.

    So when can we start Challenging people? I know Law doesn't have his Grey Knights anymore, but I'd still love to throw down and show him that Necrons ought be feared. Also be a great chance to test out my newly modified list (Now with 37% less Destroyer Spam, yay!) against his Guard...

    Hey guys, a quick heads-up about my minis in Vassal since there are no new Dark Eldar minis:

    +All wracks will be represented by Grotesques with different colored bases.
    +The Razorwing Fighter will be Valkyrie.
    +The Voidraven Bomber will be a Stormraven.
    +The Cronos will be....something spikey. Probably just a noted Talos.

    I just installed Vassal, but I'm having trouble with the models. I'll hit the models button and it will give me the race selections, but the second drop down menu for troops or whatever is empty.

    I assume that I'm missing the graphics files, or didn't put em in the right spot.

    Any help?

    Since your name means "swedish" in swedish, I just assumed you were, ya know, swedish.

    one last quick bit of help for myself as well.

    I've managed to save my army deployment with the little "how-to" pdf for vassel. (Very cool btw)

    However, Im trying to get the maps from the OP into my program to so that I can select them in vassel. Im not sure where to drop them in the file structure or if I need to have it patched or what.

    Secondly, what is the standard form of communication? irc? skype? vassel itself?

    Thanks for your guys' help. At least I can get everything together before I get stomped :P
