Always ongoing, Nic is the man to get in touch with - I'm just the crayon-pusher when diagrams are needed :D

I am not sure if I am really in a position to get this moving again. Ell'ran was running it all by PM rather than in any open forum so I do not think anybody else really knew what everyone was up to. I have not heard from Ell'ran in a few months so presuming Real Life has intervened we would be more or less starting from scratch.

Those two articles had pretty much reached the end of the process so I got in touch to get them published where they can be of some use as an update to the old 6th edition articles which were showing their age a little.

If anything else is in a similar state I can only suggest the author gets in touch - I know someone was supposed to be working on Pathfinders (as a result of which I deleted my draft on them) but I do not know who.

With 8th edition seemingly imminent and looking to be a substantive change my personal feeling is that we put this project on hold so we can store up all our energies for when the new edition is out.

What does anyone else think?

I agree. Especially the save modifier thing can change target priority for a lot of our units (mainly thinking about Firewarrior here if it goes the whfb way with using Strength as modifier)

Cool - alright. I'll also do mock ups of the 8th edition style for our new articles :)

I agree with Nic- as much as I have really enjoyed the Academy Articles (both writing current and reading past) I think that at the present it would not be a particularly effective use of our efforts to write up everything for 7th ED only to have 8th come out in the next few months.
When we forget we are soldiers, we stop fighting.
