Default Warhammer 40k online

Hello!
I was surfing the internet yesterday and i had an idea. Why isn't there a site where you can play warhammer 40k? So i looked at the internet, and didn't find any, so i thought i could post here and see if anyone knew where i could find a site to play warhammer 40k online on?

Thanks in advance.

Er....ever heard of dawn of war? :

But seriously, you mean like chess right? Well, it will be interesting and will cost nothing for you to game. No need to buy those miniatures anymore.

You use a photoshop type of program that have layers to a picture. Then you simply draw the battlefield and such, using various layers for your various troops. They you simply move the layers to represent movement, and use online dice generator for the dice rolls.

A flash version would be pretty easy for a flash git to make. It would be pretty boring as most of the atmosphere of having your own custom models and your friends/nemisis' play againt you in person would be lost BUT it would be very good for practising your strategies.

My friend and i do a version of what Ryan does but with paper. During a boring class or something, we use pieces of paper with differnt tags for models in a unit is killed and one actual dice. Games tend to be less than 500pts due to one dice and the fact that it gets boring after a while.

You should scout out a Flash pro and submit your ideas to him. Flash games tend to be free so i think you would have to find one who is into 40k in the first place. Google "newgrounds" and look around the boards on that site as there are an abundance of Flash makers there who might be interested. be warned though, there tends to be harsh comments thrown around on that site.

I f all else fails, Ryan's idea is the simplest internet based game and iwould think it would work even better in MSN messenger with the drawing tool on.

Wow, thanks for the help, i hadn't thought of flash at all.
Someone mentioned play-by-email games.
I found some software a while back, called cyberboard.
Its specificily designed for that kind of thing.
You upload images of all of your models into it, and you send the other person a board file, which containes the army lists.
Then you run it, and move the pieces, and it has an inbuilt dice roller, and you send him a movie file of your turn, then he sends you one back.

=( Unfortunatly, my PC cant run dawn of war. Not even the demo.
Thanks!

Sounds kind of lame, this is afterall, a social game and is fun when played with lots of people fact to face, also it would take away the fun of plauing with youre own personal army.

There is actually a post dealing with this already. I'll give you a hint, its on the first page.

The manager opens his dictionary and reads:

That post is locked, though, so you may have to start a new thread on BattleBoard.
