What is this board about?
« on: November 7, 2005, 08:33:02 AM »
The is the "Alternative" list-board, a place where you can make your own lists and get them evaluated and improved by our savvy group of veterans.

First off - some ground rules.

1. Don't make empty posts. If you are making a post about an army, special character or something like it make sure it has contents. Posts like "I am thinking of making an army of Imperial robots. What do you guys think should be in it?" are not very constructive. Pitch your ideas and ask for feedback instead.

2. Be sure to make the topic reflect the armylist, along with the system that the list uses, so that there is no confusion.
[WFB] Lizardmen of the Sea
[WAB] Alternative Carthage Army List
[40k] Codex: Imperial Militia
[SST] Civilians
[FoW] Resistance

3. Some things belong elsewhere. For instance "Craftworld Sha'rianakka - the Dead world" belongs in the Eldar board, as does "Angels of Burning Redemption Chapter" belongs in Marines, and "Squats - Imperial Ally-list" belongs in the Lost and Damned-forum. This is the board for everything that falls in between, or sits on more than one chair at a time.

Of course, general forum rules apply here. Be nice or you get your army ejected.

Quick list of abbreviations for use in the thread titles. Please use them, it keeps things that little bit easier.

[40k] Warhammer 40 000
[WFB] Warhammer Fantasy Battles
[SST] Starship Troopers
[WAB] Warhammer Ancient Battles
[WM] Warmachine (this could get cinfusing if we get any Warmaster stuff, we'll burn that bridge when we reach it)
[FoW] Flames of War
[BFG] Battlefleet Gothic
[B5] Babylon 5: A Call to Arms (yeah, I know there's other versions but this is the current one)

Short names like Epic are simple enough right?

If you put stuff for other games up here then go ahead and invent a tag.

I could do rules, but I really just want to spam Goatse and the like somewhere without restraint or fear of reprisal.
We get it. You've got issues.

A few more abbreviations

[FoW] Flames of War
[GoMC1] Gangs of Mega City One
[N] Necromunda
[RG] Robogear

If making your own game then write - for example
Infestation - WIP

This is a visible and obvious difference and will hopefully avoid confusion.
If your game system is closely based on an existing system post it such as [40k] Death at the Doors.


Its an even stranger day when you have a fat Games Workshop-Fanboy Ninja declare to end you for something you did for April Fools on Teh Interwebz.

It's a strange day in the world where I find myself agreeing more often than not with Swiper.  :D
