Send it! I cannot add you to the usergroup unless I get something to evaluate your work from.

IMPORTANT!
We are in deep need of illustrators and such. Graphical design is important, we need cunning people. P&M people as well.

I think that list is just an update on the previous one, probably why you ain't on it Eldacar. As for my sample piece, I'll have something sent ASAP, with some of my artwork emailed sometime afterwards.

This does sond interesting, I don't have vast amounts of time but would be willing to submit stuff ocassionally that would fall into the P&M catagory.

I paint to what I would call a high table top standard (I've done a few commissions so I can't be that bad). I also paint very quickly and have been meaning to get round to writing an article on speed painting for good results.

However my main selling point is I have at least 2000pts (most much more) of any of the basic armies painted. I don't have TK or OK, my skaven are not up to scratch, my Chaos dwarves are old spicky style and my lizardmen are actually Slann figures but everything else is good to go. So if people want photos for battle reports I can usually do something to represent what is going on. I noticed that some people wanted to write reports but couldn't due to no painted models. Howver most of them are rather old models so up to you guys.

On top of that I would be happy to do occasional collectors articals. For example my Woodies are nearly all 1980's slotter citidel and the fairly rare late 80's marauder woodies (the ones before the travisty of the 4th/5th eddition marauder woddies.)
http://www.solegends.com/marauder/mm80we.htm
My dark elf and High elfs are also fairly niffty inculding the uber rare marauder sea elves (I've yet to see decent pictures on the web of these).
But also the 80s marauder high elves.

I could of course do painting how tos on them but am thinking more along the lines of general interst photos for collectors.

Let me know, I'll see if I can get some photos for your perusal.

As it seems that "the Oracle" wont get started again, I can help out with stuff here instead.

I did two or possibly three articles for the Oracle (Portens Web Mag), and I am a decent enough writer.

I'll read the sent in stuff when I've got the time. Right now, I'm burried in schoolwork (and real life going rollercoaster).
We need more illustrators and graphic designers!

Basically yes, unless you can make it into Finland and watch over my shoulder as I draw.
I require freehands in drawnings.
As Nag already knows, I'll try to ask an Wood Elf player from our school to help in illustrating.
If I catch Lady Rowiel at MSN, I'll ask her.

Illutsrators make illustrations to ease up the pages.
Graphic designers does lay out, photo rendering (finishing up photos and images to look consistant and high quality).

I'll sign up for pictures, my drawing skills are still improving and having deadlines should get me actually finish drawings on a regular basis

an example of a drawing I made:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v435/ ... tledks.bmp

mind you, I made that over a year ago and I've gotten better in that time.

do the pictures have to be coloured?

ohyeah, I'm writing a WE story for about 2 months now (doing little bits each weak and stuff due to time probs) I could finish that one and send it in aswell.

yeah, and a month later the spawning was no more, and besides, now there are more people who can send stuff in so if I don't do anything 1 month there is still the stuff others will send in.

I swear I'll keep to the deadlines this time

That's the exact way of thinking that kills all of our current WebMags... The team relies on your effort. Without your contribution, the mag will be delayed.
