This is it! It's up, so welcome to all three of you who responded ^_^ . I'm hoping more will come soon, so we can get a reasonable number of people to join. If any of you want to proposition other people with unique armies to join, please do so!
Anywho, we are the first four: Cortana, Lord Yossanrion, warrior poet, and myself. Now I'll go over the basics so you all understand exactly what this is (in case I've been misleading), and so new members can find out what's what.
This clan (whose name is open to suggestion if anyone doesn't like it) is a place for people who collect armies that are out of the mainstream, or for those players who have uniquely different armies, whether they be heavily converted or fluffily deviant. The goal, apart from just celebrating being different, is to support one another and our unique tastes.
What I mean by this is, if a member is working on an army that fits the above criteria and they decide that they need some help or advice, I'm hoping they'll come here before shooting off to the regular forums. This isn't because I think the regular forums offer less than we could here (they offer more, if anything), but because this clan's aim is to support creativity and deviancy. Thus, and this is only one of two rules that I'm laying down, I don't want to hear the word "unfluffy" in here! I don't much care for that term and I find it to be counterproductive. You want an army of three-armed cyclopean purple Orcs who worship Khaine? Make it!
The other rule is you must have or be working on an army that is out of the mainstream. Now, that's a little vague so let me explain. Armies that are out of production (Chaos Dwarfs, Squats, etc.), armies that you yourself have created (like the Codex: Necromancers you can find in the Rules Development forum), armies that put a spin on regular GW forces (like my female Space Marines, not to toot my own horn), subarmies that are especially rare (like Cortana's Black Dragons Space Marines), and armies that are just plain weird (like bluetablepainting's cyclopean Ogres, check the Conversion forum) all fall into this category. I'm sure there are others but I can't think of any so if you want to join just post your army and I'm sure you'll get in (I don't intend to be a nazi about this or anything). I also don't mean to be exclusive or snobbish, but no one's getting in with Ultramarines or Archaon's Horde (unless you've done something weird and wonderful to them, that is).
As for clan structure, there really isn't one. I'm not interested in being the boss and a boss really isn't necessary. There are no ranks or anything like that, just mutual support and respect (I hope). If any of you four want to think of yourselves as special because you're a member of The First Four, go ahead (but don't get ****y, kid).
So, everybody say hi and introduce your armies or whatever (I know which ones warrior poet and Cortana used to get in but Lord Yossanrion, you're leaving me in the lurch), and welcome!
Oh, and I've also got a prototype signature banner...
...but I think it needs a lot of work (hey, it took me five minutes!). If anyone wants to propose a banner of their own please do so and post it here so that we can all gaze in awe at your mastery of Corel (or whatever).
