Theres all things we wish we could do in the hobby so post here if there is anything you would like to see as an Article. Tactics, hobby hints anything at all.

Also post here if you have a article in progress, so that we don't end up with a duplication of effort or if someones wished for appeals and you want to do an article on it.

Remember we have all levels of members here from Newbie to Veteran so any level of article will be of use.

Sorry if you have already posted here, with the recent 'Warp Storms' we have lost a few posts.

When you have done your Article submit it in the Articles Section in the appropriate Catagory.

Thanks all, Vash.

Alright then, I'll update the shoulderpad article I did for Astro somewhere in the next week or two.

Beyond that I'm still thinking what I could do more, might put together some small tutorials for various green stuff things. Not quite sure what to put in it though :)

Some other things that might be useful/cool are things such as basing your models and various small scenery things like this.

Just had a thought (yes, a rare occassion indeed).

But what about an article (or serie of articles) with how to make various small (gs) things? Or would this become to messy?

I had a similar thought and I dont think It would be too messy so go for it.
GS 'standard' bits like purity seals etc for different races would a handy thing to have on.
The more resources we have on the site the more people will visit and stay so alls good if its useful IMO.

Ok, I'll see what I can come up with. I'll also edit the shoulderpad thing a bit and post it up somewhere this week.

I'm also putting together a small 'how to make sprue crystals' thingy, should be able to finish that one pretty soon.

Done, the crystals seem most suitable for vespids and necrons. But they
can work in any alien environment, for the necrons you can actually use
their leftover rodsprues to make pretty cool stuff;

Necron scenery I made for a mate of fine and some homemade
flayed ones he said I wouldn't be able to build 8)

I'm going to be adding an article on my custom built Drop Pods. I am building them because I do not like the Forge World ones. I wanted something more gothic and foreboding.

Good good !
I am very interested in those Flayed Ones Hephesto as it would be nice to do some wearing Ork skins instead of Humie ones, the crystals will be great too.

Pathwinder14s Drop pods will be of great interest as Im too skinflint to spend that much on them.

Looking forward to that drop pod article!

My first article - making your own shoulder pads - is up and I should be able to finish the crystal tutorial today (hopefully).

Unfortunately I don't have any of those necron conversions anymore, with I do think I have some spare bits around (somewhere). So I should be able to make a new one.

I hear ya. I don't want to shell out the money either, but in reality I just don't like the Forge World ones. They are just too bland. They have no flavor. My drop pods can actually fit a Dreadnought inside them. In fact I store my Dreadnoughts in them permanantly. The pods then fit into my army case so it's a great bonus.

Here is a quick list of stuff I still want to add to the
articles section;

1
- Add some more pictures to the crystals article of some
new inverted colours.

2
- Finish a conversion of a large scale model for the shoulderpad
article on a defiler to show that it even works on larger models.

3
- One or multiple articles with various small things, such as
- making greenstuff flames
- various ideas/suggestions about basing
- making greenstuff symbols (still slowly trying this out)
- some greenstuff symbols like a scarab and feather

4
If I can find the right part, a quick guide to making your
own necron flayed ones. (see pic a bit up for an example)


I don't have any fixed time to work on 40K, as a result my
armies etc. progress very slowly. But you can always make
time for some smaller work such as the ideas above.
So these projects will help me stay involved with the hobby,
while at the same time I might give some fellow gamers and
hobbyists some ideas for their stuff. And hopefully I'll improve
some of 'my skills' and learn some new stuff.


So any more ideas and/or suggestions are very welcome!

I can garantee that I'll do flames and the scarabs, beyond that
I'll have a look this weekend to see what stuff I have around
and which I think could work.

I'll also do the inverted crystals and hopefully the necron
flayed one (if I have the bits, if not I'll just have to order
an extra set of claws with my next gw order :D )

Just had another idea, after having to go on another journey of
discovery into that mystic forest called 'WD collection'.

How about an overview of what was in (UK) WDs, giving a quick
title and description. Dsitrubuted into 5 big categories; 40K, WHF,
LOTR, Specialist Games and general.

So something like;

40K

WD xxx
Chaos thingy - stuff about chaos

WD xxx
etc....


Would make my life a lott easier :wink: so what do you guys think??

Bummer I just remembered that during my last move the
&^@#$%*# movers lost a few boxes of my stuff. Including
the one with all my prized old WD's :?

So now my stack 'only' starts from 287, should still turn out
to be a fairly large list :wink:
