If you always thought that Warhammer 40,000 was a too demanding game for the limited capabilities of your table, here comes a brand new incredibly small design for your future games. Complete with rules adaptation, tips, and inspiring pictures of bloody massacre. 

The aim of this website is to show you how to reduce every single model in Warhammer 40,000 into his 6mm version. Shrinking the sizes allows gaming in many different conditions and places, makes the game much cheaper, and much easier to store and transport.

If you think it's a good idea to reduce the dimensions of the game keeping intact the strategical depth, then in this website you will find all the necessary instructions and tips on how to rescale your entire army in a mints box!
On the other hand, if you play Warhammer 40,000 to enjoy beautifully painted and extremely detailed models and scenery, this version may be a bit of a disappointment.

Regardless of your gaming personality we'd like to invite you, newcomer, casual gamer, veteran, or painter, to have a look; the website is mostly picture-oriented and is intended to show the outcome of what we reckon to be a very good idea.

"Pocket Warhammer 40K", as we like to call it (but can't, for copyright reasons), is much suitable for very impatient gamers who don't like to spend much time on paint. It is also good for newcomers, because provides a very good way to introduce the game without a lot of preparation. It's most likely the best way to present the game to other people, since all that is needed is well contained in a backpack, so that you can carry it around either at school, university or even work.

If you want to read more, a good starting page is What do you need, otherwise the pictures in the Gallery section will give you a quick idea of what we're talking about. In the end, if you like the idea and you want to start making your own pocket armies, the website provides all the necessary information, tools and contacts you need to do so, combined with our active and always busy team.

We've done, and we're doing, all that is possible to make sure that
in the year 40,000 there is only WAR!

Back Online with OnePageRules

After more than one year of break we are glad to update the website with a new shiny article proposed by Chris!

The article is about a super effective reduction of Warhammer 40K rules into a single page of text. The adaptation goes under the name of OnePageRules, and you can read more about it by clicking here.

We'd also like to inform all the readers that the website is not being updated frequently because it's mostly complete, and only requires minor maintenance every so often.
Nevertheless we are always on the watch and ready to turn suggestions into webpages. All you need to do is get in touch!

Summer Holidays announcement

posted May 26, 2013, 6:33 AM by Allan Mari

This week, we spent some time cleaning/fixing all the work done during this year, and we finally managed to write a handy PDF available for download. The document contains the entire website, without a few pages that would have no reason to be include (Where to buy the models, Campaign, Battles, etc..)

The link to the file can be found on this page (last one of the list):

https://sites.google.com/site/pocketw40k/home/usefullinks

This PDF is actually an improved version of the website: coherent, easier to read and easy to use as reference. I would recommend a quick read through the document to anyone new to Pocket WH40K before going through the website.

The announcement of this Sunday is also the last announcement before September. This means that the PDF is the most updated source of information about Pocket Warhammer available, and it will be so for the next three months.

We are aware that some weeks ago Games Workshop discontinued the production of 6mm miniatures. This however doesn't seem to be a major concern to Pocket Warhammer or Epic Armageddon. Several proxies for many models have always been available (Necron, Tau, Imperial Guard), most other models are easily found on Ebay in big bunches (Space Marine, Orks). Also, several more proxies seem to come up every week since GW halted its production. During the next three months we ourselves will keep an eye on the new directions for the 6mm productions, and we will update the website with links to the new miniature retailers as soon as the new situation will become more stable.

Meanwhile, we're still open for submissions of material and opinions alike, and everything we receive before September is going to be published with the first announcements.

Right now, a good start for anyone searching 6mm miniature should is eBay (or similar), the Tactical Command Forum, or the miniature retailers linked in our website.

Wishing you a sunny and bloody summer,
The Pocket WH40K Team

Expanding Pocket - Planetary Empires

posted May 12, 2013, 5:54 AM by Allan Mari

This week's article is a very simple tutorial on how  to make a quick board to keep track of your Planetary Empires campaign. Because sometimes it's nice to take a break from 6mm and work on something a bit larger.

Adeptus Custodes tutorial and summer break info

posted May 5, 2013, 4:42 AM by Allan Mari

The first article of May is a bizzarre tutorial for the Space Marine players. This time we decided to make an unusual model, just for the fun. Less than 10 steps to make a 6mm Adeptus Custodes miniature.

https://sites.google.com/site/pocketw40k/home/conversions/adeptus-custodes


We are also planning a three-month long break for the entire summer period starting from early June to early September. This means that there will be three more updates after this week and then we'll remain silent until September 2013.
We will however keep reading mail/comments and we'll still accept submissions. Anything we have before September will be posted during autumn 2013.

Enjoy!


New tutorial, at last!

posted Apr 28, 2013, 3:02 AM by Allan Mari

It's been a while since we updated the website with some new tutorial. It was also about time we did something for the Space Marine chapters again.

This week, Levian pulled out a simple and short conversion of the typical ranged 6mm Dreadnought into melee-oriented Furioso or Death Company Dreadnoughts.
The tutorial can be found here.

Cleaning someone else's mess

posted Apr 14, 2013, 5:39 AM by Allan Mari

This Sunday we make a quite unusual update.
Some time ago we posted a thorough tutorial on how to make and print 3D models using Tinkercad, taking as example a Necron Monolith.
https://sites.google.com/site/pocketw40k/home/3d-computer-models/6mm-necron-monolith

Sadly, the Tinkercad service was shut down a few weeks ago, so we had to find a more stable solution.
We decided to use Blender, which is a very famous and free 3D modeling software; it's a bit harder to use than Tinkercad, but far more powerful.
In order to make the change as painless as possible, we also decided to make a very short video tutorial that will give you all the informations you need to know to use Blender effectively, pretty much in the same way as Tinkercad used to work.

This Sunday is greeted by the arrival of massive airplanes. New flyers pictures in the Ork Gallery.
At the same time, we decided to restore part of the scenery elements and build new ones (now really a lot). Enjoy the brand new golden statues and more on in the Scenery page!
