Just an update for all those who are curious. We've been busy working away at the first two articles this whole time (or most of the time....okay fine, part of the time jeez), and they're getting closer and closer for peer-review.

Fire Warrior Strike Team Status: Final Edit. After that it will be formatted and pictures added and then posted for all to see and critique.

Kroot Carnivore Status: First Draft Reviewed. I know nic is very excited about this one as Kroot are his babies, and so we're both taking extra special care of this article as we go about the process. It's looking good so far though, nic really knows his stuff.

A thought just occurred to me though, perhaps we could allow user submitted models/fanart/whatever to be used within the articles themselves. I wouldn't know the best way to go abouts doing this, I just thought it would be a cool idea to get a larger portion of the forum involved in the creation of these articles.

Oh, and always we're always looking for more writers to help write up various articles. I'm specifically looking for help with Breachers and Pathfinders, but will accept any help I can get.

Thanks to everyone for the support so far. Ko'vash Tau'va!

Making use of various other users' skills sounds like a good idea! I'm interested in providing artwork. For a while now I've been wanting to pick up drawing again, to be helpful to others would boost my motivation! My strengths lie at sketching and ink drawings. If you are interested, let me know what you need and I'll try my best.
Aside from my avatar I don't really have something recent to show, so I'm fine with you deciding if it's suited for the articles in the end.

I think we will be needing all the help we can get. I know that there are parts of the codex I would not be confident to write about having little experience of them on the table.

I have added all interested parties to the Academy Development Forum, this is accessible only via invitation.

I hope this helps access prior work and coordination of new updates :)

Hey- just checking in. I was waiting for a couple elements to help out with the articles but it looks like I didn't get them. Is help still needed or has the ship sailed?

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)
