I recently answered an enquiry about an army I built asking for background on the army and what figures I used.This reminds me of the old fanaticus thread where there were photos in an eye candy section plus army notes in another...which were all helpful in building new armies.
This has given me the idea of maybe doing something similar here on this forum but in a different way.I want to throw it open for input from forum members and to Cromwell who is the forum administrator. The idea is for members to post on the thread to create a reference for each army including photos, info,flags,figure choice and manufactures or anything else a member feels is relevant to assembling and using the army.The idea in time that an online reference guide to each army will be available on the forum for gamers to use as a guide to gain information to building new armies in future.I think in the case of photos I would suggest links to the external sources so as not to flood the forum with photos which will clog the forum storage due to the size of the files.Other external files or references could also be added to the thread too?
I love the idea! I have that old thread bookmarked on archive.org. I've been dredging the internet and stretching my Google-fu to get my eyeballs on any examples of some of the weird armies I have queued up.
Great idea, Haardrada. There is something similar (to your idea) on the SoA Forum. CarlL
Thanks Carll, it's not a new idea as there used to be similar threads on the old Fanaticus site, this idea is trying to bring the eye candy(photos) together with army notes and source information....without loading huge files onto threads in this forum....if it works.I'm currently working out what format to use and aiming to contact the rule writers as I don't want members to run foul of copyright or other permissions.
