Games Workshop on a Budget - Cleanup
Yes, we're quiet, but we're still here and we still have useful information!
Thanks to a prompt from Margaret, the Games Workshop on a Budget article has been updated. Some of the dead links have been removed, and a new suggestion has been added.
Coat d'Arms paint conversion chart update
For unknown reasons, Games Workshop have recently decided to rename every single paint in their range. Unlike some recent changes, paints don't seem to have been lost, just renamed.
The Coat d'Arms paint conversion table has now been updated to list the older Games Workshop paint names and the newer Games Workshop paint names next to the equivalent Coat d'Arms paints (where available).
Games Workshop on a Budget - Part 2
It has been a while (mainly because of a focus on WarFoundry) but HWT has just had another update. The idea has been sitting in my inbox for ages, but I only tripped over it again when I tried to clear out my unread emails.
The GW on a budget - part 2 article compliments the original Games Workshop on a Budget article with pointers on making your models go further. Thanks to Richard Wilton for his ideas, which contributed to the creation of the new article.
More updates to GW on a Budget
I know, I know, we've been really quiet again, but I promise that it is because good things are in the works on WarFoundry.
The good news is that the GW GW on a budget article has been updated with a couple of tips from Paper Lilybean. The tips came by email and have been included as a Buying cleverly and an Alternative models section.
Thanks to Paper Lilybean for the contributions, and I hope that people are still finding the article useful!
Fixing the unreadable
Sorry to anyone who recently saw a question mark symbol (e.g. �) in the middle of their pages. To help support multi-lingual content with the translation of WarFoundry, the server got switched from the default (ISO-8859-1 or "latin-1", I think) to UTF-8).
Remember, we may be a bit quiet here, but the next generation of army list management and creation software is being built in the guise of WarFoundry (even after recent threats of legal action against us).
Games Workshop on a Budget - new store
Thanks to a tip from "Kyrogre", our Games Workshop on a budget article has been updated with another online store offering Games Workshop products at a discount. One Stop Wargames have now been added to our list of "online shops offering discounts on Games Workshop".
Games Workshop on a Budget updated
With my focus on the WarFoundry army creator and its first beta releases, this website has been neglected a little. That's not to say it will disappear, just that things don't get added as frequently or quickly as I'd like.
What has just been updated is our Games Workshop on a Budget article. I've added a new subsection on how to get your models cheaper, thanks to a suggestion for a visitor called Mark, and I've also added a sub-section about tools.
Encyclopedia definition updates
Thanks to Jay Deeftue, our Encyclopedia definition for Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn has now been corrected and updated. During my original research I appear to have found a sentence that seemed to fit my search for the Inquisitor who trained Eisenhorn, however I misunderstood the phrase and incorrectly identified his master.
Online store removed from "GW on a budget" article
Although we make no guarantees about any of the stores in the list, it appears that WarhammerDirect.com is a trading domain for a company called Millennium Empire, who have an awful record with the Atlanta BBB. As such we decided that it was in the best interests of our visitors if we did not continue to recommend this site for its discount on Games Workshop products.
