Hi!

While Christian/Warmaster Nice has done a monumental job on netepic gold so far, it is a task way beyond what one or two people can do.

I ask you fellow list members to step up and volunteer to help out on the books. This is not a minor task. Do not volunteer if you think you dont have the time to do a thorough job. It involve compiling fluff, pictures and a whole host of work to get one book up and running.

We need help for the Squat (Warmaster has mentioned that Stephane/Kotrin would be superb for the squats, you listening Stephane, Primarch needs ya!!)

Tyranids

Slann

Tau

Each book leader will closely work with WMN and myself to hammer out the legacy which is NetEpic Gold.

Those brave few (or totally insane) need to contact Christian/Warmaster Nice at: *mustangsalling@hotmail.com*

I rarely like bothering our fellow members, but we REALLY, REALLY need the help if we want NetEpic Gold to be done in an acceptable time frame.

Many Thanks!

Primarch

Hey Primarch,

I emailed Warmaster. I'm willing to help where I can.

HI guys and sorry for the late reply. I've been a bit busy this weekend hence the lack of response.

Anyway:
The idea was that each of the voulenteers are given responsibility for an entire army book. Since each book's individual styling are meant to reflect the nature of each race, you will be getting pretty free hands to do whatever you want. Basically the only things we need to coordinate is stuff like margins, fonts and other technical stuff like that. The exact look of the layout is pretty much up to you to decide.

The books currently in the works are being done in Adobe InDesign but I see no reason why you couldn't do your book in other programs if you prefer (QuarkXpress etc.) As long as the layout follows a coordinated set of guidelines and the finished result is a high-res printable pdf file.

The text source for the book is just the NetEpic 5.0 word files which you need to transfer to the wide format of NetEpic Gold. We also have some common graphic elements such as logos and various icons. However it is up to you to gather whatever picture and graphic material you find suitable.

For that same reason it might be a good idea if you collect the army you're working on (or at least have access to the models). It is easier if you're looking for a pic of a unit from a particular angle if you can just dig them out of your collection and snap the piccies you need. ...And besides it is probably more fun to work on a book for an army you feel passionate about. :;):

Like Primarch said we could use someone who would like to work on the following books:

Slann/Necrons
Tau
Tyranids
Adeptus Ministorium (SoB)


The Adeptus Astartes book has been completed and the IG and Ork boks are close behind. In the works I also have the Chaos and Eldar books as well as some loose material for the Adeptus Titanicus book. I was hoping to have these books ready by summer 2007.

I've seen a rough draft of some of these books and I can happily say that they look completely awesome.

Kudos to WMN and Primarch for all the work they are putting in.  Good luck guys.

I could provide photos if anyone wants to convert the Hordes of Evil list.  I don't have anything vaguely resembling a desktop publishing package so don't think I can help directly with the army book itself.

Hello all.

I am working on the Slann Army Book for NetEpic Gold.

I am looking for photos, drawings, anything about the Slann.
Photos of your Armies (Epic or otherwise).

Concept artwork if you like. We are trying to complete things by this coming summer so there is time. However, The more I have to choose from the easier and better it will be.

My Army is not nearly ready for prime time. I could really use photos or drawings of the Slann / Exodus Slann/ Necron (not EA Necron)Titans.

I need material guys! Someone out there has armies. I need to see what you have done.

I am also working some on the Smurf book. It is a light hearted army but would like to give it a good look. There must be someone besides me that has one? Afterall, I didn't write it.  :p

Let me know.

Gary (wolf1)

Hi!

Pictures for this army are going to be difficult to come by, as most of us have unpainted stuff or very differening concepts on what they look like.

Perhaps some of the minis from the Exodus or DRM lines may be good? You can ask Doug or Tom for their use if any seem to suit you.

Thanks for the help!!

Primarch

I am looking at EW, DRM, BT and the new Baccus walkers ,as well as a bunch of conversions that I have already made.

Christmass is near. I am retired. I have 9 kids and 8 grand kids!  :O

So much to buy. so little money! :p

Primarch, I have heard that you had a Slann army somewhere?

I don't need anyone with a whole army (would be nice)but pics, drawings, anything that would help or give ideas. Unpainted is fine.

I can format and dress up the text and tables but without some sort of photos or art work the book is not going to be as impressive as the other completed book I have seen.

I will be able to get a few models done and painted but not the whole army. Titan ideas are a big thing.  Some one give me a hand there. Hey! I'm groveling here!!!  :p

Gary

I'd suggest any of the DRM Andrayada mega walkers as the Necron Titan....the Majestic is my fave but it might be a twee tall.  I have no idea what the creator had in mind for the SLANN titans, but perhaps some of the CAV range:

SLANN Titan 1
SLANN titan 2
SLANN Titan 3

The Andrayada troops are the obvious choice for Necron proxies, and the Kraytonians as Dracons.  For SLANN themselves, I could mock up some of the Battlesuits from the WizKids Mechwarrior infantry, and you could use the various DRM Kraytonian subjects as proxies for the SLANN vehicles.  There are some GZG infantry with bulbous helmets that might do ok as SLANN foot troops.  I could paint up a stand or two, and make a couple of stands of battlesuits if you'd like.
