About your last articles... Old archives full of treasures, yes? ;)--Darkelf77 (talk) 14:25, 23 January 2016 (MST)

Yeah, but its too bad the only way to read them is through the waybackmachine

  • I agree. And also a lot of materials from the GW-cite through 2009-2013 years - lost, because of some "cookies system" (at least I don't know how to beat it). Even the WayBack can't help. Pity :( --Darkelf77 (talk) 14:42, 23 January 2016 (MST)

Battle Reports

I haven't seen the articles in question, but citing White Dwarf Battle Reports to create pages like Deathtoll seems off. Games Workshop has naming conventions and that name does not fit, and the Battle Reports are normally just playful accounts of battles between players with no canonical basis. Midnight Sun (talk) 18:10, 11 March 2016 (MST)

I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying you don't personally consider the White Dwarf Battle Reports to be Canon and they shouldn't be included in the Lexicanum? Or you don't think the name Deathtoll feels like it would belong to a member of the Thousand Sons? --Dram (talk) 09:23, 12 March 2016 (MST)

It feels like the name suggests that it was a user battle report and not something official. Midnight Sun (talk) 21:36, 12 March 2016 (MST)

It was a Battle Report between Adam Troke's Dark Angels and Andy Keddie's Chaos forces. I think both of them are currently working for Games Workshop--Dram (talk) 22:02, 12 March 2016 (MST)

Battle reports or personal armies from GW employees aren't canon, and so are characters or results from them. We collect those informations though, but they should have a special template to mark them as such (yeah I know, the template doesn't exist; should have been on our to-do list).--Gene, Magus (talk) 20:00, 14 August 2017 (MDT)

Excavating of Treasures

Wonderful finding and work with a 'Vigos'. You are a great explorer. I'm very appreciated :) And yes, I believe (just like you) - it is also a canon background.--Darkelf77 (talk) 02:03, 29 June 2016 (MDT)

Black Legion

Just as a request, can you please add the events of Black Legion (Novel) to the Sigismund and 1st Black Crusade articles where they appear? I havent' finished the book yet and won't for quite some time due to my schedule. You already seem to have finished it. Thanks! --Harriticus (talk) 13:47, 21 August 2017 (MDT)

Sure--Dram (talk) 09:17, 22 August 2017 (MDT)

Black Legion

Nice additions you made on Sigismund's Fate part. As soon as finished Black Legion (Novel) , I went on the Sigismund page and saw nobody added what we learned in the novel. So I started to modify it. But, you added a lot more of what I had planned and did better (I'm not a native english speaker). Thanks! --KuBi4K (talk) 19:34, 28 August 2017

--Dram (talk) 09:59, 29 August 2017 (MDT) No problem

Diocletian Exemplar

I figured the character of Diocletian Exemplar was actually Diocletian Coros. He's featured in the same book IRL that he wrote in-universe as a bit of an easter egg, and it's clear that Diocletian became big later on in the Custodes. "Exemplar" being a kind of honorific as opposed to one of his names. Maybe I'm wrong though.--Harriticus (talk) 22:46, 22 October 2017 (MDT)

You're probably right. I'll redirect the page.--Dram (talk) 22:49, 22 October 2017 (MDT)

Daemons and Characters of Kill Team: Rogue Trader

Where did you get information about daemons and characters of this new Rogue Trader box? On the GW site (that you show as a source) I cann't found such information.--Darkelf77 (talk) 13:02, 11 September 2018 (MDT)

Sorry for the late reply, but Harriticus has updated them with info from their Codices.Dram (talk) 00:27, 20 September 2018 (MDT)

I see now that this information confirmed in the Codexes. But before it - the information, for example, that Vulgrar Thrice-Cursed was a crew-member of the Elucia Vhane's New Dawn vessel, looked like a speculation. Now with the source as a Codex, all infromation about this matter is ok.---Darkelf77 (talk) 09:14, 20 September 2018 (MDT)


Hey, thanks for your help with the Kingsblade/Knightsblade-related articles. KazilDarkeye (talk) 16:04, 26 February 2019 (MST)

No problem. Dram (talk) 22:15, 27 February 2019 (MST)

Nore Hackflesh/ CSM Combat Cards

You own/ have access to the card set? --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 13:49, 19 March 2019 (MDT)

No, I just found the pictures by doing a google image search. I did find this link on ebay though, which I think shows most of the Dark Eldar card set. Dram (talk) 14:57, 19 March 2019 (MDT)

I also did a google image search on the CSM but yours somehow didn't come up ^^ Anyway, I looted them as best as I could :D The Dark Eldar from eBay I had found, they are sitting in a folder on my desktop for processing :) --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 15:08, 19 March 2019 (MDT)

External links as sources

I think the convention is that one should add the date the link was accessed. Don't ask me why, I did not invent it. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 15:28, 23 April 2019 (MDT)

I think this is to know whether the source link is old or recent.--Darkelf77 (talk) 23:57, 23 April 2019 (MDT)
Plus it helps when looking for disappeared pages in the internet archive to know what timeframe the source should be in. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 03:03, 24 April 2019 (MDT)

About Guilds of Necromunda

You most certainly means the book Necromunda: The Book of Peril when creating your last articles about Guilds of Necromunda, with the pages etc, yes? Because you state a source as a Games-Workshop site, but there is no such information about Necromunda Guilds... I created the article about book, if you need it for sourcing.--Darkelf77 (talk) 12:23, 26 May 2019 (MDT)

The info for the Merchants Guild is on one of the page previews on the The Book of Peril's website. Here's a direct link to the page [1](last accessed 26 May 2019). Dram (talk) 12:38, 26 May 2019 (MDT)

Aaaaah! Now I see. I though you somewhow got the book itself and already working with it. Well, now I will change back, but - with some addition. Let me now if you agree or not.--Darkelf77 (talk) 12:46, 26 May 2019 (MDT)
Here. Is it all right? https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Air_Guild I may edit all other myself if needed. Also we may leave it with the link to the book's article, because I think page numbers will be the same as on the samples on site.--Darkelf77 (talk) 12:48, 26 May 2019 (MDT)
That looks good, thanks. Dram (talk) 13:31, 26 May 2019 (MDT)


Them, what, really already 42 issues? Of these magazines? Cool. I saw only basic 4... It would be great if someone created at least minimal articles on them...--Darkelf77 (talk) 10:34, 18 June 2019 (MDT)

  • Yeah, Conquest is a weekly magazine. Dram (talk) 10:40, 18 June 2019 (MDT)

Arkan/ Arkhan Confederates

1.) Did you check which spelling is correct before making the redirect? See the Talk page.
2.) When you make such a correction you always have to correct all instances of the wrong spelling (via the "What links here" tool").
--Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 22:46, 8 July 2019 (MDT)

The novel refers to the Regiment as the Arkan Confederates. Based on the last statement KazilDarkeye wrote in the talk page, it seems like the Black Library website is the only source for the Arkhan misspelling. Dram (talk) 09:43, 9 July 2019 (MDT)
Again, I can only apologise. KazilDarkeye (talk) 10:18, 9 July 2019 (MDT)
No problem. Dram (talk) 11:07, 9 July 2019 (MDT)
No harm done. For the future I would however suggest that the person who "fixes" such issues leaves a small note on the talk page, so that we know it was checked and not just corrected on user input. Just to smooth out procedures. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 10:47, 9 July 2019 (MDT)
I'll make sure to do so from now on. Dram (talk) 11:07, 9 July 2019 (MDT)
