Well, as many of you may know Beasts of Chaos ended up at the bottom of the ladder in the recent nemesis crown campaign. While this was caused by many factors, like lack of beast players, it is obvious that we need to form some sort of unified front. Our lists might not be the most competitive now, and 7th edition might have screwed us over a little, but I think if we all group together and talk things out we can make a good tactica.
Let put our heads together and help out our fellow beast players, and hopefully we can dredge our win ratio out of the gutter. The poll is just so I can get an estimate of how many beast players are on Librarium.
Sign ups for each section start now, and if there is a section that you want to see but I haven't made yet, let me know.
Basic Beastmen Guides
Beastmen only Playstyle
Beastmen and Mortals Together
Beastmen and Daemons
Marks of Chaos
Lord Choice Guides
Great Bray Shaman
Hero Choice Guides
Core Troops Guides
Beast Herds(this one is very important and varies widely between players, I may break this down into multiple guides)
Dragon Ogre Shaggoth
Get the most out of Ambushing
Using skirmish movement to your advantage
Beastmen BSBs: why, how, when, and when not to
more ideas from you guys.....
somehow i think the links aren't working. none of them are interactive.
those aren't links, those are the proposed topics. he's probably looking for experienced (or at least semi-articulate, well-informed) writers for the different essays.
I would maybe add a section on magic usage in a BoC list, unless you intend for that to be covered under the Great and regular Brayshamen topics.
They aren't links yet, though when it is finished that might be a nice feature.
Having a separate section for magic is a good idea, though I had originally thought of having the magic in the shaman sections. If anyone else thinks magic should be separate I will make a new topic.
I can write a few of the topics myself, but I was really hoping for some help on this. Considering I only started beastmen a few months ago, I have had some very good success, but there are many units and combinations that I have not used. For example the shaggoth, Doom Bull, giant, and centigors.
If you are worried about it being too difficult or taking up too much time, your section needs to only be a paragraph or two. Though, longer is better because it will encompass more of the topic.
Id be interested in helping out with this, though i wont put my name against anything yet. I have little free time and limited internet access at the moment unfortuntely.
Count me in. I'll add my 2 cents.
I'd be happy to get started writing about my play style. I would say it would be best for a few other people to write about their own play style. Mostly because I don't think any of us play exactly the same way others do.

If you want ideas and a starting point, have a look at the Wood Elf tactica in the Wood Elf forum.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
i say, just start the thing and post it! that will garnish much more constructive criticism, i think
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

8Y This sounds like a good idea. I'm not Beast-savvy enough to author any sections, but will be glad to help in any way I can.
We've got a decent tactica nearing completion in the Wood Elf forum - As Skars said, pick whatever out of it that you think you can use.
I am just going to start writing up some of the tacticas and have you guys let me know what you think. I'm going to start off with something easy first, like ogres, and leave the more complex stuff till later.
