Yea please look into it. I'm sure we can organise some nice decent enough images from a selection of our work to make into a calendar or something

I understand the whole demand v cost etc, so it may not be viable, but food for thought
That's a pretty cool idea. Not sure how it would be done, but it's pretty neat.

The most annoying thing about this book is that it looks like it's just directly copy/pasting the page layout/design from the pages of white dwarf. Which means all they've done is changed the page numbers, maybe added a forward. Stuck and contents in and bam, straight to market. A day's work, tops.

That said, I do like the idea of it, it's nice that GW are showcasing the community. As usual, it's just the price I'm against (grumble grumble, and all that anti GW bullshit)

Ddraig Cymry Hell I'd buy a Heresy calender! Can we have some infamous quotes on each month too? haha!

Varakir They should have done a calendar with the 12 armies, including some nice pics and some background on the people and ideas that created them.

Sell it for the usual GW markup, like £12-15 but a decent cut goes to charity. I'm sure they'd sell quite a lot from people tacking it onto their orders during and after xmas.
