July 7th, 2004 Newsletter  
Hello Everyone,
Welcome to the weekly newsletter!! From now on, I Rinion will be
running the forums newsletter. I decided to take up the arduous task
or writing the newsletter in order to help the forum. My initial goals
are to help spread the word about not only whats happening in the
forum, but also about other things outside of it, like whats new from
Games Workshop. Anyway, enough about me, onto the newsletter! If any
forum members wish to contact me about anything relating to the
newsletter, or indeed if you would like something written by
yourselves included in the newsletter, don't hesitate to mail me.

Below is what is new, hot, and upcoming this week on the Chromiates
Wargaming Forums. Be sure to check the forum online at
http://forum.warhammerforum.com for additional information on
everything in this newsletter!

****Newsletter Debut****
As you may or have may not noticed, last week saw the appearance of
our first newsletter! That one was kindly written by ^Raven^, before I
valiantly stepped in to become editor of this prestigious newsletter!
I hope this goes well!

****Rumors/Sneak Peeks Abound for Games Workshop****
A lot of rumors and sneak peeks have been surfacing on the forum in
the world of Games Workshop, keep your eyes on these threads as they
are updated regularly!!!! In particular there are some hot Fantasy
rumors for Ogre Kingdoms
(http://forum.warhammerforum.com/index.php/topic,2588.0), Wood Elves
(http://forum.warhammerforum.com/index.php/topic,2295.0); 40k rumors
(updated!!) (http://forum.warhammerforum.com/index.php/topic,2587.0),
and sneak peeks
(http://forum.warhammerforum.com/index.php/topic,2396.0); plus Lord of
the Rings model sneak peeks

****Games Workshop Storm of Chaos Campaign Started ****
After many long months of excruciating tension and build-up, through
what has seemed like an age of impatience and waiting, the Storm of
Chaos is finally here! Your armies now gathered, your enemies clear,
the time has come for you to register and record your battles, as the
battle for Middenheim begins!

****Forum's Online Fantasy Campaign Starting Up Again****
Steve_Hackett should be resuming the forum's online fantasy campaign
soon. After an intense start the campaign went on a short hiatus but
will be back in full force. Please visit the Online Campaign board at
http://forum.warhammerforum.com/index.php/board,61.0 to stay up to

****New Boards****
We, the forum have added a Non-GW Gaming Board that also has a child
board for all you Warmachine fans out there!!. In addition, this
board covers Flames of War, RPGing, and all other games not made by GW
(even board games!) We have also had Electronic Gameing Board for
about a month now! Hope you all are enjoying them!!

****Vote Chromiates!****
That's right! Chroniates is now #2 on the thewarp.net's Top 100
listing of Un-official GW websites!! Huzzah! Please vote for us over
at http://www.wabbithole.com/cgi-wabbithole/03/rankem.cgi?action=in&id=^raven^
you can also click the thing in the sidebar too! Soon, with you're
help, we can be the number one unofficial Games Workshop in the world,
and wouldn't that be great!

****Staff Member of the Month for June 2004: ^Raven^****
With this being our first weekly newsletter I decided to give June's
Staff/Member of the Month spot to myself to talk about the newsletter
and recent gaming events. Long time members will realize that this is
the first time we've ever produced a newsletter and may wonder why
we've waited so long. The truth be told is we've been working so hard
for the past year and a half to get CWF setup that producing a
newsletter was beyond our means until now. Luckily we have a stellar
staff and great core group of members who keep the forum going while
also having a high level of activity. Without those great people, who
know you are, it wouldn't be possible for me to take the time to
produce this issue of the newsletter.

The newsletter is our venue to bring what is hot, new, and important
from the Chromiates Wargaming Forums to you in the hope that you'll
stay abreast of all the activity. With the forum having grown
astronomically it can become overwhelming to stay up to date on all
the threads and posts. Hopefully the newsletter will make that less
overwhelming and more enjoyable. Each newsletter will contain news
blurbs on key threads or posts along with forum information or news.
In the last newsletter of the month a Staff Member or Member of the
Month blurb will appear chronicling either a staffer or member. This
will alternate to give everyone equal visibility. Near the bottom of
each newsletter a list of hot, new, and important threads with links
for you to visit.

We hope that everyone finds the newsletter enjoyable and that it
succeeds in its mission.

This is the section where, you, the forum members can have your say!
Just mail me with your ideas for a column and I will get back to one
member a week! The article/column must relate to the forum. Remember
this is YOUR chance to speak!!
