{| border=1 cellpadding=5

Gameplay Mechanics/Proposed Page Layout changes

The info on this page (and some other similar pages) is organised around gameplay mechanics rather than background (SM one has weapons divided by 1-hand/2-hand rather than by type and vehicles divided by elite/fast attack/support etc). I am going to alter these pages so is more inline with lexi policy. Should page be named -

  • List of Space Marine equipment
  • Space Marine equipment (List)
  • Space Marine Armoury

I intend to standardise most of the different armour/equipment lists so they all follow ta similar format, my test page was Adepta Sororitas Equipment (List) - this is the style I was intending to use with the other armoury pages aswell.

Thoughts and ideas? Thelemur 19:10, 15 January 2012 (CET)

I suggest "Armoury", because its a broad term. And I would narrow the list down to weapons, vehicles and equipment. Psyker powers aren't something you can put on a shelf and therefore not suited for this list. I would leave out the vehicle-upgrades as well. --DetlefK 19:18, 15 January 2012 (CET)
IS this going to be vanilla marines only or all flavours? Thornblood 20:11, 15 January 2012 (CET)
Good question. My initial edit will just be reformatting the info on the page (which is currently just Vanilla marines atm) and removing the Psychic powers as Detlef suggested. For other chapters equipment we could either:
  • add it in to the main lists with a note in the "Notes" section stating what chapter uses that item
  • make chapter-specific mini tables under the main ones
  • have seperate for each chapters' unique items (with a link to this page for the common equipment

At the moment though I am just planning to re-do the current pages layout and deal with other issues when that is done.

There is also a topic on the Forum here to discuss changes to the armoury pages in general. Thelemur 20:30, 15 January 2012 (CET)

I'll start work on a Space Wolves list based on your Sororitas one as a guide.
Hmm i think vehicle stuff should be in another article.--Ashendant 20:54, 15 January 2012 (CET)
I'm in two minds when it comes to vehicles. If we call the pages "Armoury" then I think vehicles should stay in (as a tank is as much a part of the armoury as a boltgun), but if we call the pages "Equipment List" then I agree a seperate page for vehicles would seem more fitting.

My 2 cents on it is we stick to the general setup thats been used thus far save a efw tweeks. "Equipment" is used instead of "Armoury" and includes all infantry weapons plus support systems for vehicles/battlesuits/what have you. You have a separate article for vehicles and finally an article for their space fleet. 3 articles for every faction. As for psychic powers, that's a separate article (i.e. Tyranid psychic powers, etc..)--Harriticus
Agreed - thats how we will organise them then. Thelemur 17:28, 16 January 2012 (CET)
