Has anyone else noticed that Rending lists its effect as happening on the To Hit roll, instead of the To Wound roll?

Thanks! Excellent resource.

The table says that WS 2 vs WS 4 would need 4+ to hit, but my digital BRB copies (sorry, I don't have a physical copy) claim 5+ (even though that doesn't fit the rest of the pattern at all). I'm assuming that your version is correct. Is that right?

Thanks for taking the time to put this together!

It really helps move through a game quicker and helps learning the details of the game especially if you do not have the luxury to play that often and/or are just starting out.

Please let me know if you do any updates in the future and would you consider sharing an editable version? It looks like the file may be in Excel.

I was thinking of adding some other things that would help me not forget things being more of a newer player (e.g. Bulky special rule, chapter tactics, etc.).

Thanks!

I've been meaning to do an update for ages now. I guess the holidays are as good a time as any, so please request stuff and I'll put it all in next week. I'll go back through the last few posts to check.

Regarding editable versions, a few people have asked and I'm happy to share the file, but it's in Pages for Mac, so maybe not as easily editable as people think!!

Some potential additions/changes for your consideration:

Assault sheet
Add "issue challenge" in fight sub-phase sequence somewhere appropriate. Maybe put (optional) qualifier on it.

Add something about rolling to save details. For example cover saves, armor saving,invulnerable,etc.

Shooting Phase sheet
Add something about rolling to save details. Armor saves, armor piercing weapons, max save.

Perhaps "Save" information could go all together in blank column on next to "Morale" but probably better on assault and shooting sheets where you need it.

Unit Type sheet
Add under walker assault section a sentence saying shaken damage results do not affect the walker in anyway.

Special Rules sheet
Add others to fill up the sheet to help going back to the rule book.

I think these are the ideas for now I can think of. I will leave it up to your creativeness and good judgement to what and how you decide to do in your next version.

From my perspective this is a great training aid and helps gives a leeser experienced player the insights of a more experienced player like yourself. I own a the rulebook but trying to go back and forth is difficult and slows things down to make sure you did not forget to do something important. This becomes a little overwhelming when you are just starting out or if you only have time to be a causal player.

I got another 6 players to start a 40K group, when 7th came out, and 6 of them were using these reference sheets for months, before they picked up a rulebook.

Finally, AN UPDATE. Ok, so we're now on V4 - you can tell as I actually put a version number on the last page, and I've changed the table highlight colour to green. Fancy.

Nope, it turns out the book is correct. WS1 and WS2 are indeed weird. I've fixed this on the sheets.

So, I've added Issue Challenge in the correct place, and found space for a 'Saving Throws' box on the Shooting page. Walker shaken information also added.

With Special Rules, all of them should be there. I transcribed the whole section. The exceptions are the ones that refer to a weapon type (Torrent, Destroyer, etc) which are on the Shooting page. Please let me know if there are some that are missing - like 'Bulky', which was hidden in the Transport section!

The tables could perhaps need each heading more identifiable, perhaps highlight them?

They are bloomin awesome and useful!

Hey ArbitorIan! You are an awesome Compilation/summary guy. I love your Necromunda compilations, and tried to PM you to ask if you will ever have time to do an update, or if the project is dead, but you might not have gotten my PMs. If you don't want to work on it anymore, I'm sure the Necromunda Community would love to continue updating your amazing work!

Great ref sheet! Maelstrom of war missions names are not good though, the first 3 missions have the same name as the 4th and the 5th.


Great job!

Any chance we can get them broken up into handy A4/letter size pages? (Would make it easier for those of us using tablets/smart phones to view them)

Thank you so much for these; I wish I'd known about them months ago! I even considered developing my own flowcharts for each phase with all the exceptions.

The Charge Sub-Phase correctly says:
- Vehicles cannot fire Overwatch.
... but their passengers can. Might be worth adding.

Also it's my understanding that "A unit being Charged may only fire Overwatch once per turn and only if not locked in combat."

On the last page, you might change "Models must remain within 2” horizontally {OR to AND} 6” vertically"

@ArbitorIan,
This is still the coolest reference sheets available.

I hope you don't mind, but I am converting it to pdf A4 format, for printer Friendly version

- EDIT -
Reason is that my tablet was stolen, so i need a cheaper version

Thanks, but it's already an A4 PDF - that's the only format I've ever made of them! You should be able to print them just like that.

Sorry, do you mean individual JPG images per page? They're already in PDF, which should be readable by most tablets (I use these on an iPad mini)

Hey dude, I think this comes down to available tech.
My printer is bad at borderless full page printing, so the pages area is reduced as I always have a border

That's why I am going for a portrait layout with space for borders all round

Hey Just noticed that the maelstrom of war missions aren't properly titled. You have cleanse and control repeated and also spoils of war.

Hi Ian, thanks for the reference sheets, they really are invaluable!
There is a possible mistake in the Desperate Allies rule, which in the v4 PDF states: "Any unit within 6" of a Desperate Ally at the start of the turn must take a Ld check"
However, checking the rulebook, it looks like this should only happen if a 1 is rolled on a D6?

Did a small update to V5 - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4104995/Games/7edRef_V5.pdf

Added the Secondary Objectives in a small table in the 'Objectives' section.

Well spotted, guys. I've fixed this.

I've added the changes you've suggested to the Overwatch section. However, I've left the coherency as 'and/or' - since models don't have to be in 2" horizontally AND 6" vertically at all times - only one need apply. For example, a squad of five could have four models on ground level and one on the level above and still be in coherency, despite the model above not being with 2" of anyone else horizontally.

Helloo. I'm not planning on updating the Necromunda ones at the moment. They already feature all the things I thought interesting for LRB and ORB versions, and I'm not really up for transcribing the whole Ash Wastes setting. I mostly actually play the NCE version, which doesn't really need any supplements at the moment!
