Great suggestions guys. The more we get the easier it'll be to delegate articles for the upcoming Heretic magazine.

I already have a breakdown of Shining Spears on my blog I'd be happy to copy/paste for you

I'd also love to contribute an article on getting the most out of your Grav Tanks.

Any more guys? Come on, we all slag off the quality of White Dwarf. If you were editing White Dwarf for 6 months what would you change?

What would you add to it? What works? What doesn't?

Be vocal, this is your chance to help meld the shape of our Ezine with your own devious ideas!

Deep striking: Best places to do it?
(This would be handy)

How to get the best of your cities of death kits! (An article on cool looking ways to construct the kits)

When to know you're beat...
(an article on picking your battles, like knowing not to charge guardsmen against a defiler )

pants on head stoopid
(The best ways to lose a 40k game, like forgetting deep strikers, forgetting about moving and shooting, and skipping right to assault)

Shoot the officers!
(As there are so many emerging guard players, and with all their new gribbly death machines, it's hard to know how to defeat this monster of an army.This article will help all you heretics and xenos learn how to bring the imperial war machine to a grinding halt!)

And on the advice front, don't be pushy to gamers. That's where GW go wrong, refrainfrom articles like
"This would work well in your army, it's metal, and pricey! Buy buy buy buy!"
Add a little humour to the articles, don't be too serious. From experience, gamers like to hear jokes and witty observations abut the hobby, not just random mumblings that lasguns are flashlights XD

That''s all I got for now, I'm sure I'll think of more stuff soon.


Back to business!

^ We do have to be careful though, we want to improve the quality of the game in general, and a part of that is making everyone's army better. That way, relative newcomers won't get dispirited by jerks playing power lists with no consideration.

Anyway, another idea - an article on running a campaign...perhaps even a Tale of 4 Gamers - there are plenty on here to select from!

What about an article on Gaming Etiquette? Just how to enjoy the game and not be an ass (I know this wont apply to a lot of people but some people just don't realise they're ruining it for everyone else). Or how to deal with ass hole gamers. How to take a good win and how to have a gracious loss

Awesome idea, there are so many people who don't realise that hooting and cheering when they're winning isn't polite

maybe a feature on "army of the month", unless you are going to have a dedicated thread on that anyway.

Maybe some fan written campaign scenarios, for those of us that still like to add an element of role play to games.
Things can be earned for victory in each round and the final battle earns a prize worth fighting for (Daemon hood, an ancient artifact, a can of super go faster red paint).

Sure, I'm all for campaign scenarios.

My only concern is that the full campaign be submitted. I'm not entertaining the notion of submitting work piece meal per issue. Publishing it over a couple of issues is perfectly acceptable as long as we have all the work up front.
