I originally meant to do more with it, but it fell by the wayside, and the avalanche of releases over the past year discouraged me from really trying to make it comprehensive.
But I was recently contacted by Sjap, a reader from Amsterdam who had been working on his own version. He has a D&D blog which currently features the adventures of a hard-rockin', hard-partyin' pan-flute gnome rock (and rock gnome) band and if you're in the area and in the market for someone to poke your skin with needles to make pretty pictures, look for House of Tattoos in Amsterdam. He's a Dark Eldar player, so you might need to be careful once he has you on the table...
As a Dark Eldar player, he noticed that with the DE book, he pointed out that they have a warlord trait that should put warlord traits before night fight determination in the pre-game sequence. There are other warlord traits that influence that as well I believe, so certainly makes sense. Below is the version Sjap has been working on:
Pre-game1. Set up terrain2. Determine mission3. Place objectives4. Determine deployment map5. Roll off for table sides6. Generate warlord trait7. Generate Psychic Powers8. Night fight?9. Roll off. Winner decides who will deploy first and who will deploy second10. First player deploys11. Second player deploys12. Deploy infiltrators13. Scout moves14. The player that set up first can choose to take the first or second turn.15. Seize the initiative attempt

The "Forge the narrative" bit at the end is a reminder to create a story with the game.
I hope that it proves useful to some readers!
