Just a few ideas
« on: June 10, 2011, 10:20:48 PM »
Here's just a few ideas which could improve this part of our forum...
(Please feel free to post your own ideas... This part of Exilian could really use some love.)

1. Painting & Converting competitions
Why : Well competition can be a good thing...
           It can also lead to improved activity and can be a good way to learn a few interesting painting tricks from other people.



2. Painting & Converting tutorials
Why : If you're good at something you can teach others do it too... It'll make you feel better too because you've helped somebody.  ;)



3. "What have you painted/converted to day" thread
Why : #3 is the most important part... This thread would be a place in which you could post WIP pictures of your models or other interesting projects.



4. Army lists, fluff and battle reports
Why : It's creative and interesting.


5. Gallery
Why : It would be nice to have a place in which we could post pictures of our armies. It's one of the most important aspects of this hobby after all.


Those were my two cents.

i thought we had a sister site for this?

but doing it only on exilian will mean we'll get some more 'experienced' hobbyists than on Call to Arms
Tis but a scratch...

I'll start on more fluff.

Would my skills in painting Warhammer 40k help with this in anyway?

@ Dripping D - We are no longer linked to our sister site. Site conversion is probably the one to be blamed.


@ Nightangel - That's the spirit  ;)


@ Death Nade - Yes, of course.  :)

I guess the question is whether we should re-link ourselves to CtA or try and build this section up... my suspicion is that CtA would be the better option, 2/3 of the editors and another of the writers are Exilian staff already and it has a huge potential advantage in that there are reasons for other tabletop gamers to go there. But that be just me and I'm probably intensely biased.

Well I might not go to Cta as I'm already on Warseer and too many other forums.

Sorry :-[

I think it would probably be better if we/you still built this part of the site up a little more even if we were linked to Cta. it would be more convenient to some people, i think. But these are just my thoughts so yeah, whatevers cool with you.

I honestly agree with Death Nade here.

We should probably re-link with CtA seeing as, well Jubal is sorta more or less responsible for both.  But I think that Exilian's Warhammer section could certainly use development.

EDIT* As I have pushed for several times. :P

That's fine then, I'll get the link up and all. I really can't be responsible for organising any of the above though, I've got way too much on my plate. I may eneter the competitions if & when they appear though.  :)
