3E v 4E Questions

The Old World. On the surface, it is a vast and fertile place, but a shadow hangs over the world, cast by the dark, corrupting hand of Chaos.

3E v 4E Questions

Post by Angel Tarragon » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:09 am

What are the primary differences between the two? What are some minor changes that would be missed if not going through it with a fine tooth comb? Does one have any system advantages over the other? Is it possible to add stuff from 40K without too much of an issue?

Warhammer 4th edition has not come out yet (?), but the announcement suggested it would be based on 1st and 2nd edition rather than 3rd edition Warhammer.

what edition of 40k are you thinking about using to add from?

Whichever is most compatible with 3E or 4E.

Well, let's take a look at the many RPGs set in the Warhammer 40K setting.

Out of all of these, I think that the upcoming Warhammer 40K Wrath & Glory has the greatest chance of being fully compatible with Warhammer 4th Edition, since they are both being produced by Ulisses North America. However, since neither game has been released yet, this is just speculation.

As to the number of 40K games produced by Fantasy Flight Games, these were more similar to 1st ed and 2nd Ed than they were to 3rd Edition Warhammer. Since 4th Edition Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is said to be closer to the early editions than to 3rd edition, it is possible that material from these 40K games could also work with the upcoming edition.
