I thought I would put this little piece together. I have noticed that every few months the question of rule sets and which are the most prominently used comes up. So here goes: Official Rules The only truly official rules the Games Workshop endorsed were the two main books they produced and then some data sheets for want of a better word for a few other fleets.
These were the original blue book rules book that came with the original box set of the game. This contained the major bulk of all the rules and provided information on the four main fleets available at the time. It also included rules on defence platforms, space stations and the Blackstone Fortress.
The second was the yellow Armada book that was released sometime after and included rules on Space Marine fleets, the Voss Armageddon ships like the Apocalypse, Necrons, further Eldar and Ork fleets and the Tau explorer fleets. Additionally there was several magazines and annuals produced by GW.
These magazines pre-date the yellow armada book and went into the creation of that book. The Imperial Armour vol 9 or Badab war from Forgeworld also had Space Marine fleet lists included.
The good thing was that this FAQ was made in close relationship and with a lot of feedback from the community and Games Workshop designers. It was well received and made fleets like the Space Marine fleet much better actually playable to be honest. The bad news was that it was never officially recognised by GW. That being said tournaments, such as Adepticon, use these rules as part of their ruleset for the games. So it is generally agreed these rules are used.
The community is one of, if not the most, active community in generating their own rule sets and while this has been awesome it has created some levels of confusion in what rules to use. So there are a number of fan made rules but the main sets are: Book of Nemesis A book created by the awesome Polish community which introduces new ships and scenarios very similar in look to the original books.
Eldar — Move, Move, Shoot Rules These are probably the most widely used rules from the fan made community. It provides an alternative to the original rules.
Battlefleet gothic Revised This now has become more of a fleet list rule set but also includes revised points costs for ships and fleets that several big members of the community created. These for the most part pre-date the Yellow Armada book but some overlap. There is now also a compendium 2.
Project Distant Darkness These are fan made rules for Tau vessels and there are some short stories included. Some cool artwork too for those interested. It also has a few new classes. The community in France really embraced BFG and they created a great range of rule sets as well.
In total there were 33 Warp Rift magazines made but I am unsure if it has discontinued. I have found these are usually agreed with the players prior to use as it does change the way the Eldar play quite a bit. Some consider it to be fairer; others think it takes away from the Eldar fleets appeal. I would say it purely depends on the players.
