I really liked the idea of the Rainbow Warriors under a theme of LBGT solidarity (although I think Rainbow Warrior was originally a reference to Greenpeace's ship) but extending the idea beyond the Space Marines to Rainbow Warriors Homeworld or recruiting worlds as well, so would include Rainbow Gangs, Rainbow Scouts, Rainbow Xeno Allies, etc. So...

5. Rainbow Warriors and beyond. Stand proud with your LBGT allies in the infinite void, Rainbow Warrior marines, recruits, homeworld gangs and xeno allies.


All great ideas. :) I'd happily contribute to any of these

I'd join in with Zhu's proposals or the necromunda gang. Whatever we do let's keep a Rainbow element in the challenge.

Some fantastic ideas in here. My favorites so far would be the necromunda gang, inquisitorial retinue or the xenomorph safari.

Re: Oldhammer Legacy Project IV: 2017 Suggestions

I like the rainbow idea, if it can be coordinated to make sure every color is represented.

Not as fond of the actual Rainbow Warriors chapter, Space Fleet or Bloodbowl themes. But the others all sound good to me.

Re: Oldhammer Legacy Project IV: 2017 Suggestions

I enjoyed the last challenge so much, I'll certainly be considering taking part in this one. However, I do have some concerns over the themes proposed so far, which I'll state now:

Themes:

1. Road warrior themed street gang - Kinda symphonicpoet kinda ramshackle_curtis - No problem
2. Inquisitorial retinue - Fimm McCool - No problem
3. Bloodbowl team - weazil - If, we don't get the numbers, whoever receives the miniatures, doesn't get a team
4. Space Fleet/BFG - weazil - A little bit too specialist, maybe?
5. Necromunda gang - weazil[/i - pretty much number one all over again
6. Veterans of Galactic Wars Chapter - [i]symphonicpoet
- pretty much number two all over again
7. The Away Team the classic interplanetary landing crew - Zhu Bajie - What race?
8. Khaotic Kosmic Kultists - Zhu Bajie - Pretty much the same as above, but this time we have a faction
9. Astrozombies - Zhu Bajie - Ditto above
10. Xenomorph Safari - Zhu Bajie - very interested in this one - but it's a lot of work for those who take part - so keep it simple to get the participation
11. Rainbow Warriors and beyond - Zhu Bajie - pick a game, otherwise you end up with a mis-mash of stuff?

Spot color

1. Rainbow - No problem]

So, as not to appear negative - I'd propose we run with a Sci-fi theme, as way of a change and leave off chaos - so a group of knackered space veterans with the occasional youth with big ideals thrown in, with maybe a pet or two (pretty much the Rogue one retinue or guardians of the galaxy team) - are my offering for consideration.

Re: Oldhammer Legacy Project IV: 2017 Suggestions

I can see where some themes would garner less enthusiasm than others, and where numbers would be required for some things, but so long as there's a vote, I'd guess that there will be enough enthusiasm for the winner. I suppose too many similar themes could poach votes off one another and split certain factions to the benefit of others, producing a misleading plurality, but the battlefields here are things of rulers and dice, so hopefully that wouldn't be the end of any actual world. Of course . . . maybe this whole thread is structured wrong and needs fixing. I sincerely hope the moderators feel free to change whatever needs changing to make this work better, or be more standard, or what have you. I've arguably jumped in a little boldly. Just . . . excited to get started. :"> Valid points, all, but I'm hoping they'll all fall away in the polling when the Rainbow Road Warriors Chapter of the Veterans of Galactic Wars prevail. ;-)

Wait . . . does this mean each of us will probably incorporate his or her idea in whatever wins anyway? That'd never happen!

Re: Oldhammer Legacy Project IV: 2017 Suggestions

. . . idea that maybe solves some of Paul / Golgfag1's objections: Should we limit nominations to one per customer? That would at least force us to be more self selective, I suppose, and it might cut out some of the frivolity or redundancy.
