Like Jim, I miss the old Fanaticus Eye Candy pages. I always knew I could find inspiration there when I did not have time to game or hit an impediment at the painting table!
If it is easy to re-create that work with new armies and new images in the Wiki, then that would be great. I always got the impression one had to maintain an independent web site elsewhere and place a link to it on the Wiki. If it is easy to maintain that page via the Wiki and add the link, then that might make folks more willing to feature their armies and free up space on the forum.

I made a test on the Fanaticus Wiki just to see how long it would take. First you must register an account (to edit and create). Also, the images are uploaded to the "article" using drag and drop, which requires having 2 windows open.
There is a little work required to create a new "article", then add text, images, galleries, and web links to other pages. Then you cut and paste the URL for that "article" and edit the "Armies of the Fanaticii" list to add the URL and include a text description of the "article".
If anyone wishes to add images of their Eye Candy but not go through the effort, I would be willing to create the page or Gallery for you and add it to the Fanaticus Wiki on Fandom.
I've been convinced by this thread to join the self-imposed peer-pressure method and set for myself the deadline of opening a thread showcasing an army for each month of 2019. Given that the initial armies that I'll be painting are fairly unusual (Pacific Islands and North America) I think it might be an interesting addition to the forum, too!
So now I only have to have the Melanesians ready before the 1st of February
