je viens de jeter un oeil à ton blog, le concept est bon, à savoir, faire le tri dans le forum YE OLDE INN et classer tout cela sous une forme moins bordélique et plus propre, je salue ton initiative et souhaite longue vie à ton projet...

Par contre, je regrette que tu tournes le dos à la communauté francophone... Quand je me suis lancé dans mon projet de remaster, j'avais en tête de lancer une machine qui lancerait plusieurs fans français sur le net, ceux-ci étant alors timides face à l'immense totalitarisme des communautées anglophones... A mon sens, ton blog aurait beaucoup plus d'interêt si tu répertoriait et traduisait en français toutes leschoses interessantes de YE OLDE INN (Forum et site)

Là, je serais ton premier fan ! Indubitablement !

Great idea! I might contribute a bit myself :D

I'd change the language to English though.

Oh, and I was happy to see my mini's in the tutorial how to paint flat bases :D
http://yeoldeinn-heroquest.blogspot.nl/ ... HQ%20minis

You misspelled my name though :P it's Sjeng, not Seng ;)

If I register on the site, can you make me a co-writer? (I joined but can't comment yet)
I also have a few notes on the base-painting. I did them a bit differently as you described.

I actually simply painted the entire base in the grey or blue colour wanted the tiles to have, and then traced darker lines with a medium brush over them, and finished it off with a thin brush and black paint. So actually, I only used method 2. But for tutorial purposes, the post is good this way :)
But you could also paint rectangles, although it's slightly more difficult.
The rest is exactly as I did it ;)

My apologies Sjeng :D

For registration to the blog, you have to send an email to yeoldeinn.blog@gmail.com. This is very important to me to keep a written record for every member and to keep the administration side of the blog off the forum. This post should not be the channel to register ;)

Could you please mention :
your nickname on yeoldeinn's forum (mandatory)
your email adress that will be used to add you as an official writter
what categories of article you'd like to write about
an indication about your motivation and time available to do so (once a week, once a month)
if you have one, your blog on Heroquest (this way, we can add it to the blog list)

I'll give you more details by mail.

Glad to have you on board ! :barbarian:

We currently are three official writers now : Torilen, you and me |_P

Cool! thanks. I sent you a mail.

some pointers: it's "writer", not writter. It's Commodore 64, not Commadore 64. Address, not adress. Becoming, not becomming. Used, not ussed (I see that a lot, is this some kind of local difference?)
Doesn't blogger have a built in spell-check?

Oh, and you should post the Milliput basing tutorial on there as well! I have some pictures of my orcs with milliput bases too :)

(and the bar beneath each post is still in French:)

Definitely recommend the latest report, was fun reading and well put together :)

Odd error with the background and banner; if it helps - Firefox (latest) on MAC, I get the issue. Same again using Safari and Explorer.

Looked great; felt appropriately HQ old school, prior to the bug, trust it will iron out ASAP :)

Thanks! I like writing about our games :D

The strange thing is, Maike05 is the blog's admin, I'm just a co-writer, but somehow, ALL of Maike05's blogs are GONE, and his account is also GONE, so I can't even edit the blog. He's not responding to my pm's either.
He's either hacked and lost his account, or he's suddenly just disappeared off of the internets for some reason. I'm a little bit worried.
If, for some reason, he chose to abandon all blogging activites etc. he could have at least made me admin of the blog. Then I could search for other co-writers. I'm totally confused.
