    WarSeer MP&T "How To..Tutorials..etc" links. Check before you post a question thread

    This thread is intended to collect the wealth of knowledge that you guys, the users, can provide.

    It was first started by Pertinax (the Great Polar Bear of Bergen). Sadly Pertinax has stepped on an ice-floe and not been seen in several years.

    There are many people who look at this forum, and ask themselves "how do I do that?", or "where do I start?" I know I have from time to time. And these questions get asked and answered. But then after a while, a new user thinks the same questions, and asks the questions again.

    So what we hope to do here is to collect painting threads with the theme "How to...", and make them visible for all to see.

    Please, if you see a great tutorial, send me a PM and I will add it to the list.

    That Awesome Project Log You Cannot Seem to Find Anymore.
    You remember seeing this fantastic log that where an entire unit/army had been finished and you cannot find it anymore. Please check out our Hall of Heroes. This is where we have been sending those completed special painting logs to prevent them dropping into the murky depths of page 10+ within the Painting Logs. Have a completed log that you feel should be added to this forum, send me a PM and the staff will review it for possible inclusion. Once added to the Hall there is no more posting, but it is a far smaller area to search and should make for interesting browsing.

    Contributing threads.
    Please feel free to get in touch with me (Captain Brown) about threads that you feel should be included. These threads can be anything from basic dry-brushing advice, to advanced terrain building, or non-metallic painting. Tell us about them, and we'll have a look and, hopefully, put them into this index.

    Posting a Question in MP&T
    Obviously if one of the subjects you are looking for is not in this list, or the search function has not helped (remember to use the lower search function between New Posts and Quick Links) please make sure to add a question mark at the end of your thread title, so members know you are looking for advice on what sort of figure to use to represent XXXXX or replace YYYYYY...that way you will get useful responses rather than: "Awh...I thought this thread would have a cool picture?"

    Thanks to everybody. And especially to those who have taken the time to write some constructive and helpful threads about how they do things.
