Space Marines vs. Steel TacArms

Warhammer 40,000 by Games Workshop is the world's most popular science-fiction wargame, but AT-43 by Rackham is gaining in popularity, also among players who are used to Warhammer 40,000 (or 40K, as it is often known for short). This web page has a downloadable booklet that tries to set out some of the more important differences between the two games in an objective manner. It is mainly intended for people who are used to 40K but have recently started playing AT-43 and so may need a reminder of these differences, as well as for ones who would like to know in what ways AT-43 differs from 40K before deciding whether or not to start playing AT-43 as well.

· Printing a booklet

This document is designed to be printed as a booklet — that is, with two pages to each side of a sheet of A4 or Letter paper, so that you can fold the sheets in half and staple them together in the middle. You can also print it out with one page to a sheet, but this will make everything larger than intended, and some loss of quality may occur as a result.

How to print a booklet depends on the program you use to view the document (and note that not all PDF viewers are capable of printing in booklet form). In Adobe Reader, click on FilePrint, then for Page Scaling, select Booklet Printing. The image below shows this setting highlighted in Adobe Reader's print window:

Double-sided printing

If your printer can print double-sided (also known as duplex printing), enable that to automatically make the pages print on both sides of the paper. How to enable this depends on your printer and operating system — different printer manufacturers often put it in different places, so you will have to consult your printer's manual or browse through the printer's settings to locate it.

If your printer does not support double-sided printing, you will have to select the option to print the Front side only after Booklet subset (see above), which will only print one set of pages. Then put them back into the printer and print the remaining pages by selecting Back side only. Be sure put the pages in the right way up for the second pass — you may have to experiment a little to find out which way this is, but since this depends on the printer you use, no definitive advice can be given here.
