I would happily do it if i knew how...
Grarrzag - January 6, 2008 02:21 AM (GMT)
Hmmm, I could try using paint, but I do not have photoshop. Should have a very basic banner/buttons, but do not expect anything too good, as my skills in drawing arent very good, never mind on paint :P But I will try.

I could do something simple.
I could make a banner in the same style as the one in my sig aswel.

I think that would be a great idea! I tried my hand at paint, but failed, horribly...

We are trying to gain new members not to scare them away ;) .
Traitor King that would be great.
Traitor King - January 11, 2008 05:10 PM (GMT)
Its not perfect but its a good template to work on.
Hespithe - January 11, 2008 08:36 PM (GMT)
Yup... just place my Avatar to the right, there, and it'll be perfect!
Traitor King - January 12, 2008 12:42 PM (GMT)
So, is this going to be used?

I know I'm new here, but I thought I'd try to help out.
Potential for a new banner.
Thoughts? I can adjust anything you like.
I've got loads of experience using photoshop as it's part of my job.
Need help with anything, just let me know.
Drax - March 12, 2008 05:36 PM (GMT)
i am liking that krom, nice to see you actually doing something work related, even if it isn't actually work!
Grarrzag - March 12, 2008 06:16 PM (GMT)
Wow, that is beautiful Krom!!!! I'll see what the other admins got to say, and we will put it up :D
Hespithe - March 12, 2008 06:26 PM (GMT)
I'll vote twice for this one, lol. Great work Krom!
warhound of chaos - March 12, 2008 07:21 PM (GMT)
That's a really cool banner!
aa7 - March 12, 2008 08:02 PM (GMT)
nice work :)
just a small query though and not wanting to bring a downer to the new banner but I know GW are fairly strict about their intellectual property being used outside of their own company so there may be some issues with the use of BoC and Empire army pics that have been used. You may need to have in small yet legible type that the images used are property of and © to GW or ask them their permission first. Better safe than sorry. Maybe it would be better to work on designing a new logo or typeface and used that rather than GW images. Also he use of a new logo could also be implemented into the buttons required also. Anyone have ideas for the buttons?
Grarrzag - March 12, 2008 08:05 PM (GMT)
You bring up valid points aa7. I do not know how GW would react seeing their pictures being used elsewhere.
As for buttons, I was thinking we can have like warhammers (the weapon) with text on them or something...
Kroq-gar - March 13, 2008 01:33 AM (GMT)
You dont even need my vote, lol. :) perfect! Perhaps for the problem........should we ask permission? Should we just go ahead?
krom_stormbrow - March 13, 2008 08:48 AM (GMT)
Glad you like. I'm having a go at some of the other elements of the site to try and help out were possible.
Though if I'm out of place doing so just say... I don't mind :D
To be honest, no other forum asks permission to use their images anyway. Just find a disclaimer for the bottom of the site, it just needs to say about the whole hobby being GW copyrighted, and all that guff.
Ok her we go

Let me know what you think. I'm trying to get that old world type feel for it. They are probably a bit bab, but all crit is welcomed.
Drax - March 13, 2008 01:56 PM (GMT)
just a thought krom, are you able to get hold of pictures from the 'Old World' map?
it would give the same kind of feel, but is more applicable to the site.
i do like your examples here though
krom_stormbrow - March 13, 2008 02:24 PM (GMT)
I get it Drax... you think my work is turd... *Curls up in corner and cries*
Grarrzag - March 13, 2008 04:13 PM (GMT)
Wow krom, You have talent! I really like both of those, although I am kinda leaning towards the first version :)
krom_stormbrow - March 13, 2008 05:42 PM (GMT)
As I say I can change them in any way you would like.
Drax - March 13, 2008 05:44 PM (GMT)
he certainly has G, which is just as well, he runs a company that does this sort of thing all the time!
i'm all about the second ones, the maps just look great!
Hespithe - March 14, 2008 02:44 PM (GMT)
I like them both... but I'm leaning toward the second set.
If thse are done, then the grey background, the rest of the forum skin, is gonna be way off. Are we really looking to redo the entire skin? If so, fine with me, but I just thought to let everyone know where this was headed.
It might be wiser to find a skin that matches whichever detail set we choose before making any changes.
krom_stormbrow - March 14, 2008 03:47 PM (GMT)
Hey I don't want to make huge changes for you folks... I'm the new guy and not sure it's my place.
If you want to do it, I'll help where I can... graphics and the like.
Your call guys... See me as your graphics monkey :D
Grarrzag - March 18, 2008 01:05 AM (GMT)
I'm just thinking that if we chose the second set, we are really infringing on GW's copyright as it is piece of their actuall map, I can set 1 up for 1-2 days, then the other set for 1-2 days and se witch one we like better ;)
krom_stormbrow - March 18, 2008 10:11 AM (GMT)
Grarrzag - these are currently just concept thoughts. If we put them up, let me know what exactly you need file format wise for these. As I think I need to work these a little more so that they tile seamlessly.
:D catch me on aim: peapodaway
or pm me to exchange emails. :D
Grarrzag - March 24, 2008 01:55 PM (GMT)
Okay guys, as promised I added the new banner, hope everyone likes it the way I put it. The other things krom created, I will put at another time, thanks krom once again for your work :D
Warlord Gromzarg - March 24, 2008 02:44 PM (GMT)
Wow Krom that looks great do I have permission to put it in my signature for other forums to well try to recruit some people?
Drax - March 25, 2008 12:09 PM (GMT)
how can i change the photo into a link guys?
i plan to put the new banner on my myspace page, but i could do with it linking to the site since there isn't an address on the banner
Hespithe - March 25, 2008 12:34 PM (GMT)
Ha! Got it! Took me a few minutes to remember it all, but there it is!
Drax - March 25, 2008 12:47 PM (GMT)
much appreciated h, will add it to my page later
Grarrzag - March 25, 2008 02:18 PM (GMT)
just to let everyone know, I will add Kroms first set of banners tonight, when I get home as I cannot seem to access photobucket from school...
Grarrzag - April 1, 2008 11:33 PM (GMT)
I just finished adding kroms banner set #1 :D
The only query I have is the reapeating banner when looking in a forum, its like this:
-sort of quarter of the top of the other banner
I am trying to find a way to fix that, but nothing I do seems to work... Any suggestions?
Warlord Gromzarg - April 2, 2008 06:04 PM (GMT)
Wow that looks really good. Can we keep it? :o Good job Krom. :D
Drax - April 9, 2008 04:36 PM (GMT)
by the way, our old banner is still the one used for Warvault - i think perhaps we should get that changed

Warvault has restrictions on banner size, the new banner Krom made is too big to fit there, unfortunately...
