so, does you saying "used without permission" mean you think its legal to take all the copy written info and just use it all on your own? (i live in canada where this is a copy write violation, so im just wondering about your country.

Hi ggoodd, GW says you have to write used without permission. I have only used images of their army book covers and the "Warhammer" logo which I will probably be replacing with my own one anyway.

I think they're reasonable when it comes to hobby stuff providing you're not competing with them or trying to make money off them. That's certainly been the case with my blogs in the past and the unofficial army books we publicise, GW are well aware of them and they haven't moaned about it yet... yet - gulp!

Hi ggoodd, GW says you have to write "used without permission", if they didn't say that then they would mean you could never use anything at all. I have only used images of their army book covers and the "Warhammer" logo which I will probably be replacing with my own one anyway (see the foot of the links and credits page).

Hundreds of websites use the Warhammer logo and book covers to sell their products, I'm not making money from this unlike those companies. I have placed the disclaimers on my site very prominently, at the very top so I feel reasonably comfortable that I'm not overstepping the mark.

Like I said, I will probably change the site banner to the one in the Links and Credit's page "Sigmar's Fantasy Battles" I quite like the idea of having my own Sigmarite empire ;-)

well its up to you at the end of the day, but hey expect a huge "i told you so" when the C&D letter lands, it makes quite a thud, GW legal use some good quality stationary trust me.....

I've added Merry Slaughter (most enjoyable army match ups) and Chosen of the Dice Gods (luckiest winning armies) to the WFB Battlefields page [data taken from the Luck & Fun sliders on the Add Battle page]

I think the pages make quite interesting reading - it gives me a chance to show off some of the army pics too :)

Vampires, Tomb Kings and Wood Elves are all quite close to the top when it comes to needing a little lady luck. Interestingly, the two top armies in the rankings (Warriors of Chaos and Dark Elves) present the favourite battle match up and it seems Lizardmen enjoy their games least, the best of which are battles against Daemons.

Orcs and Goblins & Tomb Kings also make an appearance in the top 3 fun games which is somewhat surprising given that they are way down the list on the Army rankings page - maybe they're just happy gamers or simply enjoy the randomness of their armies - I'm thinking animosity, stupidity, fanatics, crumbling to dust and Tomb Scorpions that got lost :)

More info about the Battlefields page on the Battle Reporter blog.

I've added a new section to the Hobby Choices poll results page.

It shows which army collectors own, paint, want, love, loathe and fear each other army.

I've blogged the details with some observations here:- WFBattles - Army Collections (blogged)

And here's the WFBattles page under the "Polls" section:- Member's Army Collections

I have updated the Members Roster page to give people the option of excluding those members from the Win% ranking who have not posted Battle Report links or Battle Notes when they added their battles.

You have the option of setting your own qualifying criteria for Battle Notes which is set at a default of 500 characters [approx. 6 sentences] (see image below and read on) :-

  • (1) Click the check box to only rank members who have posted a link or notes
  • (2) Choose the number of characters written in the Battle Notes that you consider sufficient*...
    ...then hit <Enter> or <Tab> away from the characters text box

* add 1500 to the characters text box if you want to exclude all battles except those with Batrep links.

We now have over 370 tournament battles (and 1,000+ friendlies) so I thought I'd add a filter to give visitors the option of checking out which armies perform best in tourneys or friendlies only (tourney's tend to be played by somewhat more experienced gamers and can distort the stats a bit - check out Bretonnia's position!)

WFBattles.com development has resumed - update for 21st Feb

I've restarted development work on WFBattles.com. Here are couple of quick updates:-

I have added a filter to the Member's Roster page to allow visitors to see member Win% ranks by Tournament / Friendly or All Battles. See green ellipse in below image:-




I've added a section to the Battlefields page named Professional Mercenaries & Fun Foes.

It shows the armies listed in order of Fun and Skill (combined) and the enemy they demonstrate the most skill* against and had the most fun battling (where the result was a win or a draw).

* skill is defined as requiring the least Luck (ie. 100 - Luck as recorded on the add Battle page)

I've blogged about it in more detail here:- Professional Mercenaries & Fun Foes
