Dont know whether this is the right place to post it up, if its not then my apologies.

Does anyone know where I could find templates that are similar in design to 40k Codexes? This is so that I can post up decent looking fan-made codexes on my site for an ongoing 40k campaign.

Many thanks.

hey, you're not likely to find that kind of thing for MS Word, or clones of it. Codex's are written, likely in either Quark or InDesign (publishing software). I'd be really surprised if there were templates for Word.

I had little difficulty setting the Army List section in Word. Just like a web page it takes a few Tables to get it organized the way you want it. Setting up those tables is what took the most time.

I've been using Adobe InDesign CS4 to re-create my own CSM codex. You can get it pretty much spot on... I'd be surprised if GW didn't use it or a similar software.

I used Publisher when I made my Codex:Ultradragons. I could send you the .pdf of it so you can look at it. (though I am a novice at publisher, I thought it was pretty easy.)
