Welcome

Hi, welcome to Warhammer 40k! Thanks for your edit to the Space Wolves 13th Company page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Montonius (Talk) 02:19, February 10, 2011

Pictures

Fantastic work on the Angels of Absolution, Algrim, just fantastic. You're our new go-to guy for the custom Colour Schemes. If you find any other Space Marine Chapter pages with discrepancies in the custom pictures, please feel free to create the correct scheme, your work is of the highest quality and is a welcome addition to the wiki. Thanks. Montonius 07:26, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Great pics you have put up.

Exorcists

Thanks Algrim. By the way, I really just wanted to say that after a rough start you've become a real top-notch contributor whose work I look forward to seeing, and that's saying something considering how few solid editors we actually have. You're our go-to guy for Space Marines, so feel free to continue your replacement of our custom Space Marine Colour Schemes, your work is superior. Thanks again. Montonius 09:15, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Great Idea

Great idea Algrim! Let's fix all the First Founding Chapters and the Chaos Space Marine Legions. Tell me which ones you want me to unlock first. Montonius 05:44, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Great job on the Blood Ravens. Which First Founding Legions do you want to hit next? We're half way there! Montonius 11:51, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Deathwatch

Not to distract you from the Vraks project, but could you do a quick custom Chapter colour scheme for the Deathwatch? I did one months ago but the badge is wrong and also, i've got the colours on the wrong sides lol, the Imperial Fist badge and the silver Deathwatch arm should be reversed. You don't need to fix the text, just that one picture, if you get the chance. It's unlocked for you. Thanks. Montonius 05:28, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Magnificent, just freaking magnificent on the Deathwatch page! Best custom job you've done yet. Thanks. Montonius 21:39, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Storm Wardens

The Storm Wardens need your custom touch as well after the Astral Claws and Red Corsairs and when you retouch the Revilers and Praetors of Orpheus. Unlocked the Storm Wardens for you, but don't alter the text, I recently rewrote it. Thanks. Montonius 22:41, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

LOL. Ooops, my bad! Sorry, didn't realise what I asked you to do was locked. Duh! Opened! Montonius 00:46, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

Let me just say that with your Storm Wardens custom scheme you just outdid yourself. Magnificent! Simply freaking magnificent! (They are a personal favorite Chapter of mine) Montonius 04:47, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

Blood Gorgons

Algrim, thank you for your aid and dedication in systematically tackling large areas of the wiki as no other contributor ever does or is likely to ever do. Your efforts are invaluable to us. As always, thanks. Montonius 03:28, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

Chaos Fleets

Algrim, Chaos Fleet needs your sources and page numbers, please. Great work, by the way, you've really filled out some crucial parts of the wiki. Montonius 07:23, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Bio-Titans

Algrim, I have a very special request. I was wondering if you could work your magic on the Tyranid Bio-Titan page. I have not been able to secure access to the original sources concerning the Bio-Titans and the page is poorly written and poorly explained. Even worse, there are no pictures to explain the different types of Bio-Titans listed. If you could make any enhancements to the page, I'd be very grateful. Thanks, as always, Montonius 15:17, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

P.S. Great job with the Bio-Titans and Hierophants. And welcome your brother aboard for me!

Unification Wars Congrats

You did an amazing job with this page! I was truly dreading gathering that information from all the novels. Brilliant, just brilliant! Kudos to you. Montonius 08:09, July 28, 2011 (UTC)

Eisenstein

Algrim, love ya for that picture of the Eisenstein; I looked forever for one to put there and gave up!Montonius 07:45, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Welcome Back

Welcome back, Zach, we missed you and we've grown quite a bit in your absence. The page is unlocked, didn't even know it was lockedor I would have opened it long ago.Montonius 01:49, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

Squats page open. Montonius 01:55, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Eldar

Hi Zach, thanks for completing the Eldar page. Thanks again, you're doing fantastic work. Montonius 03:57, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Necrons

Hey Zach, your Necron Lord page is perhaps the best you've ever done. Truly great work. Thanks. Montonius 01:34, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

I THINK I LOVE YOU

Alright brother, just wanna commend you on what a quality job your doing with this Wiki. Im pretty new to the whoke WH40k scene Ive just finished reading Fulgrim and the 4 before that in the Heresy series and Im genuinely Hooked line & sinker. Ive been studying the Wiki all day and Im pretty up to speed with everythin, I think. Theres so much to cover. I have no real desire to play the board game at any point, but the novels, wow, I genuinly aim to read them all, not just the Heresy series haha, infact Ive just ordered the Space Wolf Omnibous V1. Thats all anyways, just wanted to say Keep up the Good Work and fuckin ignore that SpaceMarine asshole blowing off about copyright infringement, like your pal said to him, your actually increasing the fan base of WH40K with this site so in effect doing them a favour, I cant see them suing or anything like that, you just might wanna be careful with copy & paste's etc.

Mark.

Sabbat Worlds Crusade

When you are done with all you want to accomplish for the Titan Legions, and as far as I know all that remains is to add separate pages for each type of Imperial/Chaos Titan, I have a page that could definitely benefit from your time and research. Our Sabbat Worlds Crusade page is completely bare and we need to start laying down some information there. After your absolutely herculean effort with the Titans, I though you might like to start on that project. Its another multi-pager that will take some time to research and prepare, but I'd like to see some progress there as it is the largest non-Space Marine Imperial campaign we have not yet even touched.

On another note, absolutely fantastic job with the Titans. Could not have been done to that level of quality without you. And as a reward for your efforts, I just wanted you to know that we now get over 100,000 page views globally on a daily basis and more than 30,000 individual users, up from less than 1,000 when I took over the wiki only 18 months ago. And that growth is in no small part because of the work you have accomplished here since February. Congratulations on a job well done, and we all look forward to your future contributions, Zach. Montonius 05:57, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

P.S. I wanted to bring your attention to another wiki I founded and operate, the Warhammer Wiki for Warhammer Fantasy. If you ever get tired of Warhammer 40k, as I sometimes do, the fantasy world is also a fun place to hang out and prepare pages for. This wiki is about 18 months old but I have had little time to work on it because of my duties here. Take a look, because with that wiki, we could easily make it the number one wiki on the net for Warhammer Fantasy, since WF does not have a real competitor wiki right now. Montonius 06:15, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Oi! Nice Pikshures!

Oï Algrim Whitetoof.

Fall of Prospero

Wonderful work! You have truly mastered the art of researching an extremely difficult subject with the attention to detail required that makes us the best Warhammer 40k wiki out there. When you have finished up the remaining tasks I outlined above, I will have more need of such skill for several new projects. Again, simply outstanding work and an immense contribution to this wiki's success. Montonius 14:26, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

im just here to say hi to! but ill just ask u u like dogs soo much?? just asking! :)

Robots

Wonderful work on the Robots and Legio Cybernetica pages. I think the Robots page in particular represents some of your best work to date, Zach.

Kudos

I just wanted you to know that in the last 5 days you have personally added 36 new pages to this wiki. I believe that is a new personal record for you. That represents an extraordinary committment and dedication above and beyond the call of duty which I just wanted to recognise. Your committment to the wiki has been exemplary and, I thought you should know that we now average over 60,000 separate people viewing the wiki every day from across the globe. This growth has been in no small measure the result of your hard work. Keep it up! Montonius 10:22, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for your help. It worked out really well with Shas, and I think that's because of your help; you've really been an invaluable aid since you became an Admin, and I just wanted to express my appreciation for the great job you're doing at every level. Thanks again; I couldn't run this place without you. Now let's get back to content creation, whoo hoo! Montonius (talk) 00:46, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Planet List

Whew! Nice clean up of the Planet List! Now can you do the same (removing all the old footnote data and the Main Article: xxxx links and replacing them with the in-text links to the Space Marine Chapters so that each entry begins with the link in the paragraph text) from the Space Marine Chapter list, Mr. Clean? LOL Montonius (talk) 05:40, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, Shas'o came up with the idea for creating a template to indicate those pages like the necrons that will undergo a major revision in the future. Here's the code he used, but I thought when you get a chance you could just adapt your Inquisition label which you use for pages under construction with this text:

"Please note: This page is slated for a major upgrade in the future. Information at present may not be up to date or may be of low quality. "

Here is Shas'o's code, if you find it helpful:

{subst:iumb

| bg = #EEE8AA

| image = Whatever Picture

| caption = Outdated Content

| message = Parts of this article have been identified as no longer being up to date.

| comment = Please update the article to reflect recent events, and remove this template when finished.

}

Please leave any complete sign code on my talk page and I will apply it to all the necessary pages. Thanks again, Mr. Maintenance!

Montonius (talk) 08:02, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Mordians

Very nice page with the Mordian Iron Guard! Best IG regiment page yet. Montonius (talk) 03:51, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

Ork Boyz

Hey Zach, when you get a chance, not that I want to pull you off Vraks and the IG redlinks, but that Ork Boyz page needs a list of all the different types of Ork Boyz with a short description of each one, which we will eventually create a page for each, if they don't already exist (DON'T do that now! Orks for the future, just the list! LOL).  Montonius (talk) 02:55, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

I need your skills.

Thank you sir, I try my hardest. I have found two new Space Marine Chapter/Warbands for you: the Black Crusaders from IA2 on the Grot Bomm pages, and the Exquisite Host warband in IA Apoc II, on the Sonic Dreadnought page. Sorry for the extra work.

Vforvendetta1 (talk) 01:30, April 10, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks

This is Terisk, the guy who made the original Macragge's Honour page, And i just wanted to thank you for adding a astounding amount of detail to the page along with Shas'o'kais. And also thanks for not just deleting it outright you are awsome man.

Terisk (talk) 15:28, April 17, 2013 (UTC)TeriskTerisk (talk) 15:28, April 17, 2013 (UTC).

Necron Dynasty Configuration Image

Hey Zach, can you use your graphical magic when you get a chance to give me a bigger and clearer image of the makeup of a Necron dynasty on page 13 of the Necron 5th Edition Codex? I have begun the Necron upgrade, and I need a bigger and clearer version of that image of the Saurekh Dynasty to add to the upcoming Necron Dynasty section on the Necrons portal page when I continue work next week. Thanks, and obviously, we have crappy sopurce material so anything you can do that is better than the current page would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Montonius (talk) 12:56, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

IG Specialists

Hey Zach, you're probably already doing this, but could you add ALL the functional Imperial Guard roles from both the Only War Core book and Hammer of the Emperor now that you've started the project? We could use them all. Montonius (talk) 18:31, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

IG

Zach, I really need you to stay focused on finishing all the Ig specialists. The Eldar will wait til they're done. Thanks. Montonius (talk) 22:17, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the Crimson Hunters icon! I hoped you would fix it. Awesome! Montonius (talk) 05:16, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

Salamanders

What was the official source for the contention that the Salamanders have slower reflexes than other Astartes in the Gene-Seed section of the Salamanders' page? It has been challenged as incorrect on the Talk Page. Montonius (talk) 13:10, July 8, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Algrim, just a quick question. Which one of the sources on the Imperial Navy page

http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Navy#Torpedoes

states that torpedoes are 200 metres long on crusiers and 300 metres long on battleships?

Warhammer 40k Wiki Ranked 52nd

I just thought you might like to know that this wiki was recently ranked 52nd amongst all other Wikis on all of wikia in the number of readers and in quality! There are well over 10,000 wikis in existence on wikia! This is an extraordinary achievement, and is due in no small part to the work you put in over the years. We are now ranked among the likes of the WOWwiki, the Star Wars wiki, the Harry Potter wiki, the Mass Effect wiki, and the like, all considered the best and most popular wikis in the world. I just thought you'd like to know! Montonius (talk) 00:08, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

Horus Heresy Specialist

Hey Zach, since you have more limited time, beyond doing whatever you felt like, I was hoping to just make you the Horus Heresy material specialist. As that stuff comes out on a more irregular schedule, I'd like you to take point on putting up the pages related to the new material, or altering the existing material, like with the novel Vulkan Lives and the Horus Heresy Volume Two Betrayal background book coming from Imperial Armour. You can, of course, do whatever else you feel like you have time for, but your Horus Heresy stuff was always the best, so I'd definitely want you to do that material if you have little time for anything else. Thanks!Montonius (talk) 23:18, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

LOL, Zach, its not an order, just a request. You do whatever you like, and I personally much prefer you to do small chunks than to do the massive info dumps of the past, because my own time is now more limited than before, just like yours. But when you do have the time, I'd like you to use it on the Horus Heresy, because you always did the best work there, and it's the stuff people are most interested in. When you left us, our daily numbers dropped by 25,000! Thanks. Montonius (talk) 00:14, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

P.S. Can you prepare pages for the other two Chosen of Abaddon and a Chosen of Abaddon page itself? Thanks. Montonius (talk) 01:01, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

Old Necron Vehicles

The current Necron Wargear page has a list of older vehicles like the Abattoir, Tomb Guardian and Obelisk (an older version different from the current one wealready have a page for) that come from 3rd Edition. I think we need seperate pages for them as Shas'o is going to redo the Necrons Wargear page up to the new standard which will get rid of all the vehciles, but I can't do pages for them because I have no idea what the sources are for them, some of which is old White Dwarfs. Can you help me source them? Montonius (talk) 04:29, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

Penal Legion

Zach I received a request today for a page on an Imperial Guard Penal Legion. If you can put one up quickly, that would be great, but if it's gonna take a lot of time to research, just lay it aside til you have less important stuff to do. Montonius (talk) 01:57, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Ultramarines

Hey Zach, can you make sure all the new info on the Ultramarines makes it onto their page? I think its the last one of the major Chapter overhauls covered in the 6th Ed. Codex that we didn't get around to yet. Also, can you make sure that every image of the individual Space Marines from each Chapter in the Codex has been tranasposed to the wiki? I beleve you did them all, but let's just make a final check to be sure, one by one.

Finally, did you pick up a copy of Emperor's Chosen to make those edits, or are those from the previews? Montonius (talk) 04:47, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you

Hey man,

Just wanted to thank you for all the work you put in on this wiki. I read this site for hours and hours and I really appreciate everything you do on here. Thanks again man, I'll keep reading!

Take care,

-Corey

Drop Site Massacre

Hey Zach, it may be a while before you get around to this baby, but I just wanted to give you this heads-up -- the Drop Site Massacre page already has a lot of material on it from different books; when you upgrade the page, try to save as much of that material as possible when you add the new details from the Horus Heresy Book so we don't lose the benefits of the other sources. Just something to be aware of; thanks. Montonius (talk) 08:03, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Sm Codex Completion

Hey Zach, I basically completed the transfer of the 6th Edition SM Codex content to the wiki today, but I need help with two things -- first, can you create a copy of the map of all the Chapter locations on pp. 16-17 of the Codex? Then leave it on may talk page and I will add it to the Space Marine main page. Second, can you add the new pictures of the Space Marine Honour Badges from the Codex to the Space Marine page? You can replace all of them there now with the new art except the one of the service studs for the head, see if you can place both pictures of the studs, the one we have there now as well as the new one, side-by-side, as I think they both look great. Thanks, and with your help we can finish off the entire Codex! Montonius (talk) 15:21, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, one more thing. Is there any way we can get a larger version of the picture of the entire Ultramarines Chapter? It's a great picture but it's too small to see any real detail. Is there any way you can make it larger so it can be zoomed in like the picture of the Ultramarines 2nd Company? Montonius (talk) 15:41, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

Legio Cybernetica Wargear

Hey Zach. great update to the Legio Cybernetica page. However, all that wargear and some of the other items are going to need their own pages. I have added these items to your blog as a reminder. You can do it I guess when you catch up with all the other Horus Heresy wargear we need, whenever that is. Thanks! Montonius (talk) 21:01, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Horus Heresy Book 2

I really hate to bother you with this but is there any way that you can get the full images of the vehicles from Massacre, the ones that take up two pages?


If you are able to do this, here is a list of them all:

The Fellblade on pages 50-51, the Stormblade on pages 54-55, the Shadowsword on pages 58-59, the Cerberus on pages 62-63, the Cerberus on pages 80-81, the Fellblade on pages 82-83, the Thunderhawk Transporter on pages 84-85, the Malcador on pages 86-87, the Spartan on pages 100-101, the Storm Eagle on pages 108-109, the Fellblade on pages 118-119, the Thunderhawk on pages 128-129, the Typhon on pages 130-131, the Thunderhawk on pages 148-149, the Fellblade on 162-163, the Spartan on pages 196-197.

Thanks!

Vforvendetta1 (talk) 05:00, November 13, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks man, I saw the picture of the Salamander's Typhon Siege Tank and couldn't believe that it was pieced back together so well, good job!

Pandorax Map

Can you get a larger and more legible version of the planetary map from the Pandorax novel and put it on the Pythos page? If not, that's fine to. Montonius (talk) 22:12, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Pictures

Just wanted to ask so i dont get banned...Can i add pictures from wallpaper abyss on this wiki?

Sanguinior (talk) 22:46, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

What can I help with?

First of all, I would like to thank you for serving our country by fighting tyranny in Iraq. Second, because I am not sure what is British English or American English I can't do much spelling corrections, so are there any tasks that must be relegated to lesser users?

I could use help trying to post my page. I am not sure what i did that did not meet your guidelines. Years ago i was the orginal guy whom created the Raven Guard page...lol. I could use some help. Thank You

Sanctioned Psyker

Nice work on the White Scars revision, Zach. I was wondering if you would consider producing a Sanctioned Psyker page as your next piece of work? It's an unusual missing hole in our psyker pages. I believe there might even be a page on it in the Only War books, which would provide a great template. Thanks. Montonius (talk) 15:00, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

Primaris Psyker

Wonderful Sanctioned Psyker page, Zach, really first class. Thank you. Can you now do one for the Primaris Psyker to finish out the topic? Thanks. Montonius (talk) 15:10, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Blogs

That is very odd. It is very likely just a glitch. I would imagine it would correct itself, as the others do. If you discover that other things are missing or that your other blog pages get deleted, that may be a hacker attack. If it keeps happening, please tell me and I will inform the proper wikia authorities. However, it is most likely just a glitch. I hope you were able to recover the Horus heresy blog intact, there were priceless entries on there that I can't replicate since I added them as I found them missing, LOL. I would suggest backing up both the Horus Heresy and Space Marines blogs to a hard copy Word document just in case, and any other of your personal content that you want to protect.  Montonius (talk) 17:24, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

Land Raider Phobos

The Mark IIb Land Raider Phobos page was properly named; please do not revert the changes. The Land Raider Phobos title is properly redirected to the standard Land Raider page, because it is simply the alternate name of the standard pattern, as the page's own introduction explains. The Mark IIb would be considered a separate vehicle under our encyclopedic system, and as VforVendetta suggested, if you are going to create a page for the Mark IIb, you should also create one for that other variant that he mentioned. As I did not wish to delete your excellent work on the page and then just add its information to the general Land Raider page as just a variant of the standard mark Land Raider Phobos, I renamed it in accord with our system and restored the redirect for the Land Raider Phobos to the standard Land Raider page, which is where it belonged under our system. Thanks. Montonius (talk) 17:29, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

Fire Hawks Land Raider Proteus Image

Can you check the Land Raider Proteus Orlandra image you added to the gallery of the Fire Hawks' page? While the image is there when clicked upon, it is not resolving correctly in the galaxy view. Perhaps a fresh scan is needed. Montonius (talk) 19:43, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

Imperial Armour Two 2nd Edition

I actually had found a copy of Imperial Armour Volume Two 2nd Edition a few days ago and that's why I'm updating so many pages, I forgot to tell you yesterday, but thank you for sending me a link, I appreciate it! I'd also like to thank you for updating so many of my vehicle pages, I'm going to try to keep up from now on, I should have time enough today to finish the rest, hoepfully.

Also, do you think you can work your magic on the Contemptor Dreadnought picture on pages 134-135 in The Fall of Orpheus? I think it would make a great picture to put at the beginning of the page. Thanks!

Sanguinior (talk) 12:39, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

Few things

1) The new White Dwarf magazine needs to be referenced in the Sources section using this nomenclature:

  • White Dwarf 5 (March 01, 2014) (UK) , "Codex: Imperial Knights", pp. 5-51, 62-65, 67-68, 73

This is standard sourcing format for magazines using number and date. I personally hate the new White Dwarf, and feel its pretty useless as a source now that they have turned it into a giant advertisement for new products. However, if you do use something from it, please use the above nomenclature for the sourcing.

2) Miriael Sabathiel. Jesus, I hate this freaking article. It's been a problem since we inherited it from the old form of the wiki. As you were the primary author for the current version, please go over it and check the sourcing and remove the parts that are not canon. The guy who ripped it apart was right to point out the problem, but did so in an unacceptable way. If we can't get confirmed what parts are real and what parts are not canon, I will simply strip the article down to what is present on the Lexicanum. However, as you did good work on this page, I'd like to preserve whatever is still canon. I believe a lot of the article comes from the Dark Millennium card game and the graphic novel; those are the sources we should rely on I believe. I have neither, however, and so I can't make the changes. Thanks. 

3) Codex: Imperial Knights. I would wait on doing any further additions to the Imperial Knights page until the Codex comes out and we secure a copy. The new information will lead to whole new pages being added to the wiki for the new Knight Houses and Knight Worlds described in the book. I hope you get a copy, this Codex represents a real departure for Games Workshop from the previous ones in the 6th Edition and really opens up a neglected area of the Warhammer 40k universe.

4) Imperial Armour Volume Two should use this nomenclature when being referenced:

  • Imperial Armour Volume Two (Second Edition) - War Machines of the Adeptus Astartes, pg. 17

5) While Sanguinor's Hive Crone page was fine in the first wto sections fo content, you need to make sure that the Biomorphs section contains the appropriate weapons information from the codex if you are going to let an untested user produce such important pages. Please see the changes I made; this is what you have to do if you are going to let him do these pages.

As always Thanks! Montonius (talk) 18:09, March 6, 2014 (UTC)


Bolter ammunition

Hi, I see you undid my edit on the Bolter Ammunition page, where I changed  the material in the penetrator from depleted deuterium to depleted uranium. I think my edit was right, as deuterium is nothing more than a hydrogen atom (proton + electron) whith a neutron added, which I suppose makes it the second lightest element in existance (after hydrogen). I'm not a chemist, so I'm not sure, but I suppose that its natural state is as a gas, which would take huge energy to compress to a liquid or solid (think about liquid nitrogen), which seems improbable for the grimdark 40K, and which makes it absolutely useless as a penetrator. Instead, as you probably know (seeing that you're a veteran, so you most certainly know more on the subject), DU is the main material used in composite rigid penetrators, such as those fired from the 30 mm GAU-8, and on top of that, it says on most other pages of this wiki that the penetrator is uranium, not deuterium (even on the same page, for the Kraken round). Lastly on the Rogue Trade core rulebook says the round contains a "superdense metal core", so most probaly uranium, not deuterium. Seeing as I do not have a user page, you might want to answer under here, I'll come back to check tomorrow. Sorry for the long post, I just try to be as exhaustive as possible.

Hi, I'm still waiting for an answer, in the meantime I won't edit the page, or it wil just get reverted. Cheers, 87.21.121.41 21:44, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Some bugs...

The shorcut of the zombie link at the Vampire article leads to nowhere, not even to the Plague Zombies... it's a loop...

And one more thing, The Chaos Space Marine Warband of the Brotherhood of Lethe, who were formerly a "judged" Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of the Crusaders of Dorn. Can't we just assume that they are the successors of Primarch Rogal Dorn, and the inheritors of the Imperial Fists Legion? Is it needed to be right down by the GW that they may be a successor chapter of Imperial Fists? Or we can add that?

Astral Knights Color Scheme/Info

Hello I was just wondering if you could put a color scheme out for the Astral Knights they are my favorite chapter so far. And possibly get more out about there successor chapter not sure what they are called but I know there is one they have 2 white swords crossing and a black background behind them. Black and white is the successor chapters color scheme. 173.202.207.3 02:18, March 20, 2014 (UTC)Bastion Breaker

Re: Astral Knights Colour Scheme

To answer your questions, the Astral Knights chapter colour scheme is not listed in any known official canon sources that I'm aware of. As far as the mysterious chapter with the crossed white swords and sable coloured background, that sounds like the Sable Swords Space Marine Chapter. According to official canon, "The Sable Swords Chapter were created following the valiant sacrifice of the entirety of the Astral Knights Chapter to stop the threat of a massive Necron World Engine on the outskirts of the Danorra System in 926.M41."

Hope this helps!

Miriael Sabathiel

Zach, I'm sorry to bother you with this while you are busy with the Immperial Knights, but could you please make a redo of the Miriael Sabathiel page your next agenda item when you are finished with the Knight Houses? I keep getting bitched at about it and the Lexicanum unfortunately does not actually have a page on her that I can use to check the sources against. It would really help me out if you could check the sourcing of the article and remove whatever is not canon since you were prime author of it. Thanks. Montonius (talk) 02:46, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

Taurans

Sorry about the Taurans article. I thought that it's a fan made chapter. Wanted to delete, but then you edit it. I did a little bit of mess. Sorry again...

ZiXIS (talk) 19:14, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

Actually I was the one to edit it. Just to clarify who edited it.

Imperial Knights

Hey Zach, before moving on to other things, there are still several Imperial Knights topics that need to be completed, including separate pages for the Throne Mechanicum, the Ritual of Becoming and the Sacristan. Each of these is red-linked on the main page and needs it own page, and any other items that are redlinked on the page that I have forgotten to mention need their own page as well. I also think we need pages for the Reaper Chainsword, the Thermal Lance and the Ion Shield which are the new weapons created by the Imperial Knights Codex. Next, there are still many red-linked Knight Houses on the page. I realise you may have added all the information that we have on these houses, but if there is any more on the ones that are still red-linked, they each need their own page, just all the other ones that have been created. 

Secondly, I would hold off on adding the Horus Heresy book 3 stuff until the book is actually in hand, otherwise, it tends to create situations where we go over the same material over and over. Lets finish up the IK stuff completely, before moving on. Thanks, and great work! Montonius (talk) 05:06, March 27, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Algrim, can I know any rules for the Wiki!! Want to make sure I dont screw up:)

Eternal Crusade needs support.

Hi Algrim,

First, I'm sorry if this post is not legit here. Then thank you for your great contributions, I have been using this site as reference for years.

To the point, I don't know if you ever heard of up comming MMO game called Eternal Crusade (if you know this game ignore my post), it's a MMOTPS being developed base on War 40k universe, 4-ways war between 4 major factions. If you are interested in video game like this please read on, otherwise ignore my post (again)

The development team very friendly and stay true to transparancy. They want to create 40k universe as close to the lore as possible. For the first time we can role-playing as our beloved Space Marine. Lead level designer is current looking for resources to expand his art library, especially Imperium architecture/building. I notice you have hugh collection of War 40k images. I ask for your help so we can support developers to make our universe comes to life. You can contact the lead designer directly, they're all very open, here is the link

Thanks.

Zach, feel free to contact them to make them aware of our site if you so choose, but be aware the developers of Eternal Crusade have a direct link to GW. I very much doubt they need any images from us for modelling purposes. LOL. Montonius (talk) 19:03, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

Question

How do you do add a hyper link to a caption?

Picture Source

Hi Algrim. Do you know which book this picture comes from?

Few Things

Hey Zach, nice work on the Horus Heresy upgrades. Just a few things:

1) We need a page for the First Battle of Paramar, the campaign described in the Extermination book.

2) We need a page for the Moritat or whatever they are called mentioned on the Raven Guard page, as there was no explanation of what that unit is.

3) Lets make sure we got all the images of the Imperial Fists Astartes from the book on their page; I think you may have done this, just want to make sure. I'd also like to see some images fo the weapons from those pages in the book as well added as sep[arate images to the Imperial Fists page.

4) Make sure the new information about the Alpha Legion and Iron Warriors Primarchs (Alpharius and Perturabo) on their Legion pages is also added to their individual pages (I've edited both of these so you can just cut and paste the relevant sections if you have not already done so).

Thanks. Montonius (talk) 12:37, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

Possible Category

Hey, I'm new here, but I wanted to know if this is a good category to make. "Materials", which would include things like Necrodermis, Wraithbone, Diamantine, Mor'tonium, etc. As a way of getting those things together for those who might want to just find those as they are cross-faction.

I can very very easily be wrong. This is just an idea and I want to run it by you.
