Welcome to Librarium Online!
im wondering how to make GG effective and cheap and im going to use bretonnian knights for my BK any one else use different that might be just as cheap and effective
any posts of pics would be great thanks
Go for Bret knights.. There have been several threads on this before.
Bret MAA work. DE warriors look sweet. Any kind of empire troops, just because they would look different from your normal skellies and zombies. Pretty much any box set that you like the look of and seem like they'd combine well with skeleton pieces (ie. NOT chaos lol) because all they really need to do is look more intimidating and different from your main troops.
I wonder if we should lobby for a sticky on VC conversions.
Its probably a good idea actually... VC have the biggest conversion opportunities of any army, and I'm sure lots of us feel like we are repeating the same stuff over and over. We could even get pics and stuff in the thread to help and inspire new people to make their army unique, that is if enough people are willing to post pics of different conversions..
King Ulric, where are you? We request the beneficence of his majesty's sticky might. All those converters will have a home, and we all know that the king enjoys a tidy forum and a lack of repetitive posts.
Maybe, but as of yet I fail to see anything worth stickying. A slight idea of having people post pics of their army which should truely belong in the Painting forum and not here. I may do it but then every other forum would need it too.... I am yet to be convinced.
So for the moment anything with painting/converting the undead belongs in the appropiate section on the forum index.

I suppose if we want a sticky thread someone needs to get the ball rolling with a thread worth stickying, a whole lot of info and tips on converting undead... Anyone want to tackle that?
There have been lots of stickied posts that were simply intended as a place for repeated topics. Consider the "What's your bloodline?" thread. You stickied it because people kept asking about it, just like people keep asking about conversions. Strewarts posted numerous times about his conversions for his Sylvanian army, and I don't doubt he's tired of repeating himself. All we are asking for is a designated thread where people can bring up the topic. The worthwhile material is sure to appear.
I'm sure it may, but the conversions and painting forums are the proper place are the correct place for them. Yes I should have moved this but never did and now it's floated away from the topic it's not worth it.
I did pin the bloodline topic as it's better suited here and lot and lots of stuff kept appearing every two weeks or so with the same stuff, so that was pinned. I can see the point of having a pinned thread on this, but again why here? If people have painting questions or conversion questions they stand a better chance of getting replys in the apprioiate forums not in the army forum.
If he's tired of repeating himself then he can just tell them to search the forum, the thread should pop up in the search. So there's no need. Sorry but I don't see that it's worth it, I'm ok with threads like this being brought back to life but I fail to see the point of pinning it just because a few members want it so. You may use this thread for conversions as I don't really think it'll warrant moving to the conversion forum now but in future threads like this will be moved (if I remember).
Painting question (Skeleton colors)
Conversion question (GW's Sample Army Converted Dire Wolves)
Conversion question (How to Convert Grave Guard)
Conversion (VC conversions)
Conversion (Idea for my lord)
Conversion (chaos theme)
Conversion (Most skeletons made from a single box)
Conversion (My Vampire Lord)
Painting (how do you paint your vampire counts ?)
You know how far I looked back for them? All were within this month. Thats right, every one of them was either started in August or had the final post in August. This is far more common than the one or two every two weeks that the 'whats your bloodline' got as you claim. And none of these got moved or even questioned. I mean, what else is there to talk about? There are seperate forums for lots of things, which makes the army specific forums become a bit reduntant if everything gets moved to the other places. That is why tactics got removed right? Everyone asked for tactics help in the army specific forum anyway.
My personal opinion is painting and converting could be to show the paint or conversion work you have done, and get comments on it. Questions like the stuff we get should be in the army specific forums. Thats just my opinion..
Ok now I'm not trying to be an a**ehole about this, I'm just pointing out what I've noticed. If you want to completely ignore this post I really don't mind, and I'm not going to go on about it after this because it isn't worth it. So theres my opinion.
About every forum needing one if this one does.. Well no other forums have a 'whats your bloodline' sticky thread, even if a few armies have different choices for their army. VC are unique that they have so many conversion opportunities, well basically anything can be made dead.
Oh yeah, one last point. I think people get better responses for these questions in here than they would in painting or converting. I know I for one never visit the painting or converting forums unless I am making a thread, and I'm sure I'm not the only one like that.
Right I've finished now. Catch ya.
