Oldhammer Wiki! Care to contribute?

http://wiki.oldhammer.org.uk/v/Main_Page

It has been brought my attention that an Oldhammer wiki has appeared on the interweb, masterminded by some bloke called Zhu! Anyone heard of this mysterious entity? :D

A very good idea if you don't mind me saying and one I knew nothing about to just now!

Good idea. Where do we stand on submitting scanned material...?

We both do it on our blogs. Have you received a C&D? I haven't! I think the view on scanned material needs to be decided by the founder of the wiki. Presumably Zhu himself?

I agree, I'm waiting for Zhu to chip in... :)

Ha! I've been caught!

If anyone has a wiki-based project in mind then drop me a PM here and I'll sort you out a log-in. More general access will come along later once there's a body of content. Some things I need help on right now:

* Migrating the old Exodite White Dwarf indexes to the Wiki (I've got the sourcefiles, so they just need wikification)
* Designer / Author and Artist Biographies
* Rulebook indexes

But that's by no means the limit - if you've got a project in mind drop me a PM with an outline of what you want to do and let's build the thing!

Posting of copyright material or links to copyright material will not be permitted, but small excerpts for comment and criticism under fair dealing is allowable :-) I certainly hope to include images of the covers of things...

Suppose I could look at putting together an early release list of Epic models if that's suitable. I've done a chunk of research including stuff on Codex Titanicus II and early release minis/rarities (The Infamous walker tank, Mk0 metal Warlord, Metal Eldar Falcon and Metal Ork Infantry, etc)

Re: Oldhammer Wiki! Care to contribute?

I think an epic entry in wiki would be great Zedmeister. epic is one of my fav games and love playing adeptus titanicus (1988) and space marine (1st), do you currently play these games ?

Re: Oldhammer Wiki! Care to contribute?

Guy over on Warseer put together the most amazing list of every single release ... with sculptors names next to them. It was mostly 4th edition onwards initially but having the complete list he started working backwards into the older stuff. I am pretty sure the folks here could complete the work.
Pretty sure he did one for 40K too.

Is that the sort of thing you are after?
I have a copy somewhere.
