    Not exactly sure where to post this

    Was wondering if there would be any interest in doing an index of lizard men articles that have appeared in White Dwarf magazines over the years.

    They have something similar over at the Bretonnia site.

    http://www.roundtable-bretonnia.org...ireboard&Itemid=87&func=view&catid=2&id=94009

    An index of information might prove to be quite useful.
    Articles would be listed by Iss number, country of origin, page no and what the article is about.

    There was at one time or another a White Dwarf Iss being printed in the UK, USA and Australia.

    Any who just a thought.

    So I will kick things of as I only have a handful of issues. At some point if we have enough items added we will have to put them into some sort of order. This is only a trial layout to see what others think.

    This looks like something that @Scalenex might be interested in tackling. Afterall, he is The Keeper of the Indexes.

    I do not have special knowledge or access to WD articles but if someone wanted to gather all the links up, I would be willing to organize it and reformat it.

    When there is a general consensus or one confident expert on White Dwarf who thinks we got most/all of it, let me with know and I'll compile what you have.

    First off my apologies but...

    thread necro.jpg

    I was trying to tackle this problem but quickly realized that White Dwarf magazine numbers are not consistent pending which country of origin they are published in.

    Case and point, WD #206 (UK), one of the books I am trying to get my hands on, published FEB 1997 in the UK:

    [​IMG]

    Jump ahead to WD #305 (UK), another magazine with Lizards on the cover, published in May 2005 in the UK.
    But this magazine is also WD #304 (US), WD #133 (France), WD #121 (Spain), WD #113 (Germany), and WD #75 (Italy). Not sure when the Australians get their own copies.

    [​IMG]

    Anyway, the WH40K Lexicanum has a great list of White Dwarf magazines based on when they are published, organized HERE by the WH40K edition.
    • See HERE for WH40K stuff in these magazines and HERE for Chapter Approved
    • A site called Hive World Terra also has a good listing of White Dwarf magazines in there collection, I especially like the list of 4th-5th edition Warhammer article listings.
    • Also found this link at the Trove, which not only has a lot of GW/WD content, but also a treasure "trove" of RPG stuff in general like Shadowrun, D&D of every edition, even Frostgrave and Bushido.

    Hope some of these resources help!

    A quick question, would we archive/list every mention and every picture of lizardmen or only articles and pictures that focus on lizardmen?

    I think only the latter, as only the latter would actually be of any use to Lizardmen players in terms of hobby
