View Full Version : Looking for old army lists

02-04-2009, 05:46
Alright, first, I know there's a forum rule against requesting pdfs of copyrighted materials, so I'll be clear I'm not asking for that. What I am asking about is help finding where certain old materials might be located, and how I could get them. I know "ebay" will be a standard answer by at least 10 people. :)

I'm looking for old rules to current armies. Specifically, I know there's an old set of Necron rules that was printed in a WD (it was the one with the exploding scarabs). I know there's a 2nd edition one and a 3rd edition one. Does anyone remember which WD they were in? Anyone know how I can get either one of those?

I'm also trying to find the old rules for each army that were in the back of the 3rd edition main rulebook. I remember the rules were very very basic. I have no idea what I did with my 3rd edition book. Its been lost to the mists of time somewhere.

I just remember bits and pieces of those old rules, and like a song where you remember only part of it, I'm never going to be able to get it out of my head until I hear the rest of the song (meaning, I see those old rules again. Unfortunately, GW doesn't seem to have any sort of rules archive or WD compilation. Do they?

scroll down to the bottom for the reference section with a list of all the White Dwarf issues with necrons in them. Starts at issue 217 in 1998.

Sorry, I have no idea where to get issues that old. I used to own it, but have moved house about a million times (ok maybe not that many) since then...

EDIT: I still have some of those necron models still in their original box... woah... nostalga..
