You know, looking at my Heroic Worlds book, why isn't there a bunch of blank topics created for every item that the book lists on here. Everyone could then fill in information if they have it. Just a thought.

I think we are trying to work forward or backwards as it were, depending on your viewpoint. If you have those items or a catalog with a list of items, placeholders could always be added and filled in later as you suggest.

One problem with Heroic Worlds is that some items aren't even confirmed to exist to my knowledge. Another problem with Heroic World's lists is, well, its his list. You know what I mean? Sooner or later we will surpass the limitations of his list and hopefully most others for that matter. If we all keep plugging away it will surely be something quite impressive.

The best we can do now is keep suggesting which items and publishers need to be added to the forums.

Yeah, know what you mean.

As for catalogs listing items, have almost all the catalogs through Judges Guild and they list a lot of products from various companies and miniatures as well.
Only thing is numbers got assigned to things that may not be the actual numbers given to products. But anyhow I shall see what I can do. I have an OCR program, don't think it'll be to hard to create a list. (course I say that now Very Happy )

I'm middle road on this whole subject. In the research forum aspect, all that really needs to be added is the company name - individual items will get added when listed.

On the same note, I really do wonder how many items listed in HW were not actually produced. Sacrifice to the Orc Lord by The Companions is one. Another good example is all the items by a company called Role-Players around 1987. This were written by Dave Graves (also part of Varanae) and were never published. They were more or less written but never published.

I'd like to see the "vapourware" added in the varios sections.. for example a seperate listing for Role-players, the list of items that were supposed to be produced and the source for the item not existing.. ie "spoke to the writer" Also other details like the existance being noted in HW etc. It's good to know that these things don't exist as well as existing....
