View Full Version : FIREBASE 3 Recruitment Thread

08-12-2006, 06:00
That’s right my hairy little monkeys, FIREBASE is recruiting new writers for its 3rd issue of unspeakable doom!

As you may know, issue 3 will be looking primarily at the foul forces of Chaos and the pious ranks of the Inquisition…with a little Eldar and other bits thrown in here and there.

So what do we want from you?
1) General hobby articles
2) Painting and terrain guides
3) Random stuff

So if you think you’ve got what it takes to help make the next issue of FIREBASE get in touch!
Email us at: firebase_magazine@hotmail.com with your ideas and we’ll get right back to you.

I could do a painting guide on Marine/CSM Armour, I've had a few people asking about my Sicarius, and I use the same method for most colours. I could do some non-metallic GK armour..
Let me know,
PS: Woot! First Reply!

I scratchbuilt a great unclean one (milliput). Its not that good, but I suppose it's chaos. Check it out on my sig.

By the way, I'm a friend of gerard pitt.

I think I'll pass on the GUO, awesome as it is.

Darkseer I'm sorry to hear your selling your DeathWing army.

08-12-2006, 08:23
Please stay on topic.

I've got a pretty heavily converted Defiler(painted up for Iron warriors). Its got an earthshaker cannon... I can send a link to a pic.

Edit: I can whip up an article about the conversion, if you want.

08-12-2006, 08:38
yup, chuck me an email.

08-12-2006, 08:55
after the new year i woldnt mind (I.e. want to XD) writing some articles on stuff... lol... would be a nice thing to spread the tactics and such i may (or may not, we may see XD) have...

An article discussing tactics for Inquisitor Retinues would be great. It could be coupled with pictures of nicely modeled and painted retinues.

You've already got the Plastic Crack Rehab Clinic's ork vs guard battle report (do let me know if there's anything extra you need – we're meeting up next week and can restage the photos etc); and we're going to try an army marathon, so I'll get some piccies and report on that too.

I'll only submit it if we actually manage to finish something worthwhile – few things less impressive than half-a-dozen grown men and women failing to complete a single squad over four days!

08-12-2006, 10:43
Yes! You need to send me more pics of the armies close up.

08-12-2006, 11:17
PM sent... and then I realised that I ought to have asked what preferences (if any) you had for the shot: elevation/lighting etc.

Do you just want some close-ups of the armies as a whole; or separate squads?

Apologies for semi-spamming the thread – do feel free to PM me.

I've got a daemon Dreadnought I've converted, I'll send over some photos & stuff if you like - please tell me what you think here. The paint job's not bad either.

I wouldn't mind trying to write a sort of Index Astartes article for the Inquisition.
Otherwise, I may be able to write a Witch Hunter /allies Tactica.

08-12-2006, 12:23
I'm a graphic designer and will do layout if you want to polish it up a bit.

08-12-2006, 12:24
I am not a very good writer but a nice sneakpeek to the DA codex would be nice : )

08-12-2006, 12:34
Ive still got to finish my Grey Knight army:p
But if you still want a showcase and maybe a battle report i'm still good (and it means i'll probably get round to finishing them).


08-12-2006, 12:44
I've been considering a how to make basic Terrain article.

How about a "Stop the Ritual" battle report?

08-12-2006, 12:58
We've got more than enough battle reports already.

All of you who haven't, please email me, preferably with pics of your army too.

Seems there are a fair amount of Iron Warriors players. As well as people who paint metal in general. I could do a painting piece on IW style rusted metal if you want....

you can see what i am talking about on my gallery here in WS...

08-12-2006, 16:07
I have no camera and can't draw, so anything with my Witch Hunters will have to be text-only. Hmmm...

08-12-2006, 16:33
I would be happy to write a tactics and strategy article for Chaos if one is needed.

If you want any more stories/fluff other than chronicles of an ork (cant remember whether its called that in the mag but it is on the BL forum) then i've got some eldar pieces that might be of interest, a trilogy about a ranger (first story complete, 2nd in progress). three pieces about a shadowseer, farseer, archon and an exodite baron. and an exodite piece in progress (the chapters are 3-4 pages of word long, and so far i'm on chapter 6 of about 10, so it might be a bit too long) (i gotta get the new chapter 1 done for that though). if your interested i'll send one of them to you in an email or pm

08-12-2006, 20:07
Will you include short stories?

I can make a short story based off something I just come up with, or I can read a battle report and do a WD style before and after short story. Let me know if you want this kind of stuff, I am working on some stuff for my NL army. I can also give you a few pictures once I get my main computer fixed, or if I can set up the one Im using now I can get you a few pictures of my NL. Nothing special, the army is not even close to being done. That and Im a slow ass painter!

Fact is I enjoy writing short stories, I would be happy to write one up for you, send it to you then you can tell me what you think.

08-12-2006, 20:09
Do you still want my =][= article?

08-12-2006, 20:10
I can do some tactica Deathguard?
Perhaps some conversion guides featuring my less then traditional Defilers.

oh,if you want some articles for an Inquisition Firebase, talk to St john- he has loads of very useful stuff for a sisters/witch hunters army and loads of really good tactics.

08-12-2006, 21:15
The wife could write a good article on female wargamers ( she plays SoB no less)

08-12-2006, 22:41

What kind of Eldar aticles are you looking for?

09-12-2006, 02:04
Wanna know what's Chaos-y?
My BFG article! And, to a lesser extent, the other 5 BFG build-off articles.
Do they get in?:p

Seriously, though, I've got a pile of bionic-y Iron Warriors just waiting to be built. Would you be interested in an article on converting them?

09-12-2006, 06:14
To everyone: YES!

Please email me. I don't have the time to chase up all of you.

09-12-2006, 06:27
I'm doing a series of chaos marine drawings at the moment, they're all over in the stories and art forum...i've only done a couple at the moment but i could probably have a marine for each major faction by the time you go to publication. I also have a picture of an inquisitor but i don't think it'd be suitable...but you can check it out none the less

EDIT: here they are (iron warrior still WIP)...a shameless self promotion but no one comes to the stories and art forum so its justified...sort of.



09-12-2006, 07:02
I like the last one. Do you think you could bulk his legs out and try a black and white shading style similar to this:


09-12-2006, 07:29

I'd be interested in that. might be a bt tricky for them to do though.

@Darkseer-check your email, i'll send you the first story of the eldar ranger trilogy. if your interested in any others let me know and i'll send them.

Winter War IV is in Bergen, Norway in March.

Maybe you want to think about a format for a tournament report type article? Not for this issue, but the next one.

That's for white Dwarf I'm afraid as our rules have no legal value.
