I think its time we look at a new header design. The current one can't be viewed in resolutions over 1024px without being duplicated so it's got to go.

A few ideas or even full exampled would be welcomed - if you don't have the skills to design one maybe you have a great idea that someone else could implement.

The only constraints I'd like to place are the inclusion of a suitable logo and the ability for it to be viewed from 800px width up to widescreen size (whatever that is) without repeating as it does now.

It also has to tie in with the blue and orange theme of the website.

We also have permission off Dan Scott to display any of his artwork on our site.

My widescreen res is 1680x1050 Jez. And yeah, I get the header repeated.

Blue and orange is cool but I think that, being as this is Heresy Online, it should have a chaos feel to it as well.

I'm not all that proficient with photoshop and such, but I do have one hell of a lott of artwork on my pc.....although I guess there'd possibly be copyright issues.

Another option would of course be to wait a while until our legion really kicks of and we get some talented people to paint up a few squads/vehicles/major characters and have someone photoshop a nice banner from those, or multiple of course :wink:

Well I have my moments :wink:

First we need to decide on the colourscheme, by the look of things all minis should be in by the end of coming weekend (my last 3-4 will probably be last...stupid work takes up so much time). So we could narrow down the various schemes and put the remainder to a public vote. So with luck and some hard 'work' we could have various pics of Dark Talons within the month :mrgreen:

We did with the artwork up there.

I can create something if someone has ideas.

That image is too similar to this forum Darkmessiah. Thanks for the effort though.

I'm really keen on using some of Dan Scotts artwork. Maybe if we could use it with a fading touch similar to your Signature.

The header space is definately going to change though. Maybe a logo design and new logo would give people some inspiration to work with?
