The 3rd edition....
I started my wargaming journey with the 2nd edition of warhammer 40k and Necromunda. But I also had some good memories of the 3rd edition.
For some people the 3rd ed is the worst: it's too simple, unbalanced and very poor in fluff.
For others, it's one of the coolest, most fun and most simple to dive into whitout being intimidated with the huuuuuge 40k fluff.
So you want to build an army for 3rd ed, but are bored to flip thru the codexes and "chapter approved" articles from white dwarf?
Here is an incredible project to get back to 1999 with modern tools!
Battlescribe is an app that help you to build army lists from many gaming system. It's all community driven so the data you will be using are made by the community.
In our case, Kris from the wahrammer 40,000 3rd Edition facebook group put together the datas for us. Thanks Kris!
