Stat Block Numbers???[edit]

Privateer Press has now said they have no problem with specific stats -- site should be changed to reflect that (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

PP won't let us post stats/rules on a third party site (ie here). See this threadd [1]

Stat Blocks part 2[edit]

PP has now said it's okay to post stats as long as it's not for profit.

Can we post them here? - (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Yes. juckto (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2017 (EST)

Report a Bug[edit]

This section is to report anything, anywhere, that you spotted on the wiki that you think needs fixing.

Spoof Page?[edit]

This is floating around in Minions-Barnabas, Lord of Blood (,_Lord_of_Blood). Not in Warroom, and I found nothing on a search (just double checking I hadn't missed anything). This is a spoof, yes? Could it be deleted?

Cheers, El'Sycorax. 18 July 2017.

It's feom the Spoilers in PP's keynote presentatuon at LoL. juckto (talk) 15:08, 18 July 2017 (EDT)

Arcane Supression[edit]

There's a duplicate page for Arcane Suppression that has just one P in it. I've cleaned up the Woldwyrd page that used to link to it, and the duplicate should now be deleted. Bilbostomper (talk) 05:12, 31 January 2017 (EST)

I find the easier solution is to redirect the duplicate page to the non-duplicate page. It's only one edit rather than 2, doesn't require an admin to delete the duplicate, and future proofs it against other bad spellers.
Also, hi Bilbo, haven't seen you since mk2. Do you want admin rights? juckto (talk) 23:20, 31 January 2017 (EST)

Links not working[edit]

Sometimes when I'm browsing on my phone I can't click links. My phone just doesn't recognise it as a link. juckto (talk) 15:36, 15 June 2016 (EDT)

This isaue seems to be resolved now we're not using the bootstrap skin. juckto (talk) 23:23, 31 January 2017 (EST)

Request a Feature[edit]

Since we're still setting up this wiki, there are a lot of things that users would like to have that the sysadmin hasn't installed yet. This is the best place to mention them.


Can we add a banner picture at the top of the main page? Right now it's rather bland and unattractive. I've uploaded a suitable picture here - Praetordave (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I'm not super keen on having a banner that's taken directly from PP. I know that we use their imagary all the time for model pictures, but this feels a bit different given that it's huge and going to be emblazaned all over our Main Page; I feel it could easily be misconstrued as we're presenting it as our own artwork.
Also, we had a banner/logo discussion ages ago on the Facebook group (Link). It isn't on here yet because Kyle was supposed to add it to the top menu (right where the 'missing pic-logo' symbol is), and hasn't got round to it yet.
Anyway, I guess we could have a banner plus that logo, but as I said above, maybe not that banner. - juckto (talk) 19:04, 7 December 2016 (EST)


We have a logo (here). How do we get it onto this page? juckto (talk) 20:38, 14 June 2016 (EDT)

Looks like you edit the settings file, and probably want to upload the image file to somewhere on this server. 610 (talk) 00:20, 21 June 2016 (EDT)

Collapsible Tables[edit]

  • Requested by: juckto
  • What it is: Allows you to collapse a table so only the top row is visible. More info at the Wikipedia article on collapsing
  • Why we need it:
    • The "Rules Clarifications" have the potential to get very long very quickly, and most of the time people don't want to read all of them if they're looking for a specific one. Shrinking them would be good.
    • The "Model indices" are really large tables. Especially for mercenaries. It would be good to shrink them (they can still be set to not-collapse on non-merc pages).
  • What we need to get it running: MediaWiki:Common.js

Dynamic Page Listing (DPL)[edit]

  • Requested by: NeonChameleon
  • What it is: Allows you to find the "intersection" of multiple categories. More info at (?)
  • Why we need it:
    • So we can sort "who has pathfinder" by faction, etc.
    • So we can set up auto-themes (when they're released)
  • What we need to get it running: (?)

Parsar Functions[edit]

  • Requested by: juckto & Ibidem
  • Essentially, it allows us to create templates with "if/else" statements. More info at Wikipedia article on ParserFunctions
  • Why we need it: For statblock templates.
    • Say, if one model has a FOCUS stat and one doesn't, currently we need two different templates (if you try to use just one template, it'll have "FOCUS = No input provided" on one of the models).
    • We don't want that, we want one template which is smart enough to not display anything for FOCUS if the user doesn't input FOCUS.
    • Similarly for models with no ranged weapons needing a RAT input, models which aren't units require a UNIT SIZE input, etc etc

Official Forums backup[edit]

  • Requested by: Sleet01
  • Official forums are going away forever (bar some hobby threads and the Rules Questions) on Monday, March 1. I may be able to scrape some stuff; any interest in hosting it here?
  • Why we need it: reference material, the occasional laugh
