Semi-Official Rules

Forgeworld Rules
Sometimes considered official, sometimes not. Almost always accepted. :)
Alas, Forgeworld has no rules online, the only ones available are the Imperial Armour 3: Taros Campaign rules for the Tau fleet:

Blast from the Past rules
___Battlefleet Gothic Magazine (PlanetKiller) issues 1-19
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-aXA8fc5AQ8Uzg0d2xKZjZ2UVk&usp=sharing
The old magazine! For historical value.

___ BFG 2002 annual
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-aXA8fc5AQ8c2gtWkxFWWJWcjQ/edit?usp=sharing
The official pre-Armada rules. Enjoy this historical piece of Battlefleet Gothic

In general you can view it like this: the magazine led to the annual 2002; the annual led to Armada.

A special place for the well known BFG:XR:

Battlefleet Gothic XR
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ewea-cSj9wprQm9poiI5Fh0rTkrq4Cy4?usp=sharing

A revised rulebook with fleetlists build with a lot of community input. Several people headed the project and it is still evolving!

Other Unofficial (fanmade) Rules
Over the course of years the community has brought forth many great articles. Here I will include various of these articles, mostly the ones containing rules, ships and fleet lists. Tactica's will be for another place.

___Book of Nemesis
https://www.specialist-arms.com/fanatic/96bon.pdf
issue 96
Made by the BFG group from Poland. A very large supplement in the honour of Armada. A lot of new ships, new scenarios and more.
Do not let the grammar and spelling mistakes withhold you, these happened due some very unfortunate incidents.


___Eldar MMS (v1.9b)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-aXA8fc5AQ8T0pOTmliYmIxR0U/view?usp=sharing
Started by Sigoroth and Horizon, maintained by the latter, several years ago. This document provides an alternative to the official Eldar rules system. Years of testing and development led the current version 1.9b which has been stable for a long time now.
 

___Starblade
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-aXA8fc5AQ8Y2NlZWZiNzctZjNiMS00ZDgzLTljOTAtNzhkYzc4MmM0N2U0/view?usp=sharing


___Battlefleet Gothic: Revised (BFG:R)
http://afterimagedan.blogspot.nl/2012/10/battlefleet-gothicrevised.html
A community project initiated by Plaxor but is currently under supervision from AfterimageDan.
Basically a democratic voted document. It changes various point costs & stats of vessels. Additionally altering fleet lists and adding some new elements like 2 hit escorts.
The project is still development at this very website.


___ BFG Ship Compendium
http://www.google.nl/url?q=http://yenlowang.free.fr/warhammer-forum/BFG/BFG_-_Additional_Ships_Compendium_1.4.pdf&sa=U&ei=9fFPUfm4HNLK0AX8oYGwCg&ved=0CBwQFjAA&usg=AFQjCNGLKkw9b8V1P-9ybHKls8-nKAAKFg
(Direct PDF)
A collection of vessels from various older Battlefleet Gothic magazines. Mostly pre-dating Armada.



___Project Distant Darkness
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B-aXA8fc5AQ8bFFIZ3hDUEtBY0k?usp=sharing
A special set of Tau rules
  • Project Distant Darkness Main : the background & rules
  • Chapter I The Art of Command : a story driven scenario expansion
  • Chapter II Distant Sun : a second story driven scenario expansion

Written & produced by Zhai Morenn & Horizon. With some cool artwork from Khar and others..



BFG FRANCE
This community has added some wonderfull variations to the fleet lists of them own:

That Remastered Compendium looks rather slick! If it really includes all the work invested in the 2010 Compendium you've all worked so hard on I may use it as my default. Horizon, what are your thoughts on that?

Yeah, I think you can use it. I haven't read it in detail though so I might expect him to have missed the small 2010 FAQ which was only published on this forum.

Furthermore you would need the compendium 2010 fleet lists and other ones since he didn't include these.

But as a base core book: go ahead.
