First of all: The idea of retheming "Pandemic" into the "Warhammer 40K"-universe is not new. The idea was first brought up by BGG-users leaxe and vice. You can check out their awesome versions in this thread. So a big "THANK YOU!" goes out to both of them for their ideas and projects, which were a huge inspiration for this retheme.

After getting totally hooked on this idea, me and Doc Holliday started working on our own version. Now we would like to present the results to you here.

We rethemed the base-game as well as Pandemic's first expansion "On the Brink". We also took selected elements of the following inofficial custom expansions by BGG-user The Warp: "End Day", "Threat Level Six" and "Morbidity". So a big "THANK YOU!" also goes out to The Warp for these awesome variants!

We also incorporated some minor corrections and house-rules, we deemed suitable.

Here is an overview of how we converted the main game-elements (from "Pandemic" to "Warhammer 40k":

Earth => Galaxy
Cities => Planets
Diseases => Chaos Gods
Epidemics => Major Offensives
Mutation => Cultist Activity
Research Stations => Strongholds
Outbreaks => Overruns
Infection Rate => War Level
Cure => Holy Crusade

But enough words, here are pictures:

Here is a shot of all the game-material:



And here a 3D-rendering of the box:


We've designed the skin to fit a standard "Medium Square" Gamebox (like "Arkham Horror").

This is the detailed gameboard:


It's designed for a size of 83.4 x 55.6 cm and can be folded to fit inside the "Medium Square" Box.

Probably the most important aspect of the retheme are the characters:

Detailed character sheets:

Shot of all playable characters:

As you can see a bit in the second picture, the character sheets all have some minor distinctions (e.g. blood splats, broken display's, badges, loose wires, etc.).
It's needless to say, that the Warhammer 40k tabletop-game provides many awesome figures to use for these characters.


Now on to the cards, with the most important decks being:

The Imperial Deck:


And the Chaos Deck:


There are also some additional card-types (all from The Warp's custom expansions):


The game also uses a handfull of markers:


So far we are very pleased with how it turned out. The new theme fits Pandemic's gameplay like a glove.

If you like this retheme, and would like to build your own version, just send me a geekmail and i'll reply with the download links.

Oh, and you might also like to check out our other retheme projects:
- "Battle for Dune": A Dune-themed remake of "Game of Thrones"
- Ghost Stories rethemed: The Call of Dagon
- "Star Trek - Space Alert" ... A Retheme

PS: Of course we are in no way affiliated with the creators of "Warhammer 40k" or "Pandemic". This retheme is purely a non-commercial private fan-project. All the merits go to the creators of the boardgame "Pandemic" as well as the creators and contributors of the immensly rich "Warhammer 40k"-universe and all the incredible artwork floating around the net.

Me too please

I jumped ship from the 40k hobby into the boardgame hobby due to 40k becoming crazy priced... Smart move huh! *looks at ever expanding game collection* hmmm

This looks like a brilliant way to do both...
