Rebuilding a Fallschirmjäger list for 4th Edition

Added 24 March 2020 to TECH REPORTS

One of the joys, or headaches, of a new game edition is rebuilding your armies in a new way. So let's see what changes, what gets left out because its no longer available, and what no longer makes sense to take.

Redesign: RSS and Feedburner

Added 22 March 2020 to AUGURIUM

Over the years this site has made great use of RSS feeds as a means of publicising new content when it's uploaded and live.

Redesign: Details, details

Added 12 March 2020 to AUGURIUM

Now the broad brushstrokes of the new site are in place, it's time to start drilling down into fiddly details.

Poll: Unforgiven army builds in 8th Edition

Added 8 March 2020 to TECH REPORTS

This poll is intended as a quick snapshot of how Unforgiven gamers are building their armies using the 8th Edition Codex Dark Angels.

Redesign: From green to white

Added 29 February 2020 to AUGURIUM

Since the dawn of time (almost) we have used a Dark Angels inspired green for the background of this website. But that has now transitioned to a cleaner white.

Redesign: Setting design change goals

Added 18 February 2020 to AUGURIUM

It's always useful to set down your priority goals that your redesign project should attempt to achieve.

Redesign: Lessons learned from migrating to a secure server

Added 14 February 2020 to AUGURIUM

The reality is going https isn't as easy as flicking a switch as many hosting companies make it out to be.

Redesign: Gone secure. Gone https

Added 11 February 2020 to AUGURIUM

With any luck there will be a little padlock icon visible next to the address of this site in your browser's url bar, rather than an ominous 'Not-Secure' or a warning exclamation mark or symbol of some kind.

Redesign: on the road

Added 29 January 2020 to AUGURIUM

I've made the decision that this site is in need of a redesign. To follow progress and thinking, the plan is that anything related to the redesign will have a title starting with "Redesign:". And this page will serve as an ongoing table of contents.

Redesign: Ditching Disqus

Added 24 January 2020 to AUGURIUM

Call me a cheapskate but I'm not paying $xx for the privilege of hiding low-rent random adverts that Disqus, the third-party commenting system, insists on littering a website with.

I can't believe where the time's gone

Added 3 January 2020 to AUGURIUM

Well, so it's nearly three years since the last update here. That says a lot about my involvement with the Dark Angels nowadays.

Further information will be filed in the near future.
