Dont realy know, but I wrote about northern europe and what happened up here. Guess many like to make a hero, since they can refer the hero to themself.

EDIT: I might add that I also was declined.

Well, if you read mine, I went more into an actually story. Like with a hero, a close group of buddies, specific allies, and specific enemies. Not just talking about the factions. However, I could probably write about that too, I just enjoy that style a little bit less.

Edit: Not trying to brag here, just informing. I got "accepted". With the quotes, because Matt is still deciding whether he wants to use freelance writers or not.

Oh don't worry, I remember that. I was more just saying that to anyone who would read it, not anyone specifically.

Thanks! Of course, it isn't finalized yet, because, like I mentioned previously, Matt hasn't deciding whether he wants to use freelance writers or not. But, anyways, I try not to get my hopes up, but all I know is that if this does work out, there is a lot more Warhammer coming my way! :wink:

Even if he decides not too, my fragile ego would like to know whether or not I would have made the cut.

Mine was a joint project between my wife and I and she is the one that wants to know more than me lol. She's been writing a book for a while now, but won't let anyone read it :roll:.

I really hope Minigwargaming is still accepting short stories for this. I've only just read this topic tonight and have been spending the whole night thinking up ideas and characters to put into a story. I should have it done in the next day or two.. Will my entry be in time or was there some time limit that I am not aware of?

hey just sent in my effort, sounds like i should of put some more polish on it after reading the thread all the way through.
why is dave still deciding on freelancers if its a money issue, I'm sure there is a fair few writers who will do it for free until the series takes off
anyway that's my two cents

I would gladly help you right a book on Primal Horizon, but soz right now I got the Dark Angels one, but it's aside for now. I can help you. I'll plan 4 that book too! Now just tell me what type of marines they r, bandits, gallidos or something like that and um the aliens( the ones from avp?) Glad to help, and I'll be paid maybe 10 bucks, just about that!
