I'm personally in favor of leaving the Army List section as it is for the time being, mainly because only the Marines and Chaos would have enough traffic to warrant their own sections. The other sections would be slow and empty-looking, which may discourage people from posting there. New members may join and say, "Well, the Tau (for example) section of this site is slow. I'll go to Tau Online," or something along those lines.

Quite a definative vote then.

Clearly this is the way we should be laying out the armylist section.

What i'd like to know though are your opinions on what the main armylist forum woul dbe used for?

An obvious choice would be Hybrid lists, doubles lists etc. Any other thoughts?

I like the idea of a one army, one codex outlook. It seems like that is the best way to go about things. Plus, once the nex codices come out, there can be a sort of general tips.

For chaos/daemons though, would it be better to mix it so that it's Tzeentch CSM/Khorne CSM etc, as their is a wide variety, and being one of the seemingly more popular armies out there, could get clogged rapidly? Either way, changing seems a suitable enough layout as Jezlad suggested.

We don't have the traffic to justify one subforum for each codex.

The key to sucess is building it up slowly, splitting it down when the post levels are high enough to warrant it. No one wants to visit 40 forums with 5 posts in each.

Eventually we'll look at splitting deeper, for the time being though it'll be split identically to the example with dropdowns to distinguish different marine chapters etc.

I'm not sure what the main army list forum will be used for though.

How about apocalypse armies?

Also, where would marines or imperial guard w/ daemonhunter or witchunter allies go?

I've been thinking and think it will be best to start off with it in less groups like Asianavatar said but like this:
Space Marines
Other Imperial Armies
Chaos Space Marines
Daemons
Xenos
Hybrid

And then split it up further from there. Saying that I will be pleased whatever you do.

Ok, now we've clarified this we can stop getting sidetracked

Apocalypse armies is good. Armies with Witch Hunter allies etc will still go in the subforum of the main army.
