Guardsmen, We Need You!

Foot Sloggers, Tread Heads, Gunners and Glory Boys, WE NEED YOU!

In conjunction with From The Warp Ron and inspired by Twilights 'Picking up the slack' blog, I'm proud to bring you The Parade Ground, a FTW blog list dedicated to the Guard.

We're not planning to do any group articles or community posts, just simply be a hub for Guard player to promote their blogs and find what other Guard bloggers are upto. I've already built a reasonable list of Guard blogs on my own but if yours isn't there, then send me the link and I'll get you added.

I don't want to be exclusive, but it is a Guard bloglist, and so if your blog isn't dedicated or doesn't have a reasonable amount of Guard related posts, then this list probably isn't for you. The amount of posts you have doesn't matter, you can have 1, as long as it's a Guard one, traitors welcome (That's something I didn't think I'd be saying on my blog!). If you're unsure, drop me a line anyway. The list isn't restricted to just FTW members, it's open to every Guarder but if you've not joined FTW yet, you're really missing out on a great community.

To get your blog added to the list, simply drop me an email to colcorbane@gmail.com with your name and the web address for your blog or alternative, just pop a comment on this post with your blogs address and I'll get you listed.

There is a widget to display the PG logo on your blog and help promote the bloglist if you want, this is in no way mandatory, have a look at the PG column header for the link to get the widget.

Col. Corbane said...

No worries mate. I've already added two new blogs this afternoon, so things are looking good.

Col. Corbane said...

Just a quick update, it's been nine hours since the list first launched and I've already had 5 requests to add blogs, two thanks for already been on the list and 4 recommendations which have been added.

So far, so good :-)

Outstanding idea Sir, nice to see you Guard fellows coming together.

Actually it makes a great resource for Guard players AND for people like me to see everything Guard related.

Here's to prosperous future.

Jonathan said...

Once I get some pics of my mechanized Guard army up on my blog, I'll give you a shout-out.

Cannonfodder said...

My current army is also the Imperial Guard- feel free to add it- I will post about it this week- mainly Photos of my troops.

Col. Corbane said...

@Ron - Cheers mate and thanks for the link. Hopefully, overtime it'll grow with FTW. Hopefully, a few more members will pick up the idea and run with it. It'd be great to have a load of themed sub lists.

@Jon & CF - Nice blogs guys, i've added you to the list. Keep the posts coming.

Col. Corbane said...

Wouldn't be the same without the 42nd mate, thanks for the link back.

Admiral Drax said...

Splendid!

Thanks for putting me in.

Increasingly I'm starting to think I'd bleed Catachan Green if I cut myself tomorrow.

I'll get the widget up soon too.

And maybe I'll stop clogging up your inbox.

Maybe.

I'm seriously envious of the force you're putting together!

Cheers,

- Drax.

Mordian7th said...

Great stuff - I've been following your site with interest for some time now, and I absolutely love the works you've done. Thanks for putting this together - I'll be adding the widget to my blog shortly! Good stuff mate!

Col. Corbane said...

You envious, I'm sitting here envious of yours! - pmsl

@ Mordian7th, cheers mate and thanks for the link back.

kilian said...

Col. Corbane said...

Nice to see a site dedicated to the Guard. I realize I'm not as active a blogger as most, but my forces are IG. Great idea!

harreh said...

Great idea, and nice blog too. My Blog is pretty much purely IG, count me in!

Inquisitor Lord Aki said...

Guard blogs are like the all-infantry list: you can never field enough of them!

http://berkswarhammer40k.blogspot.com/

Col. Corbane said...

Kevin, Matt, you're on the list now guys.

Aki - Ed emailed me yesterday, you're already added ;-)

Col. Hessler said...

I'm not seeing my updates here. I see the one from last week but not from yesterday. Just a heads up.

Cheers.

I'm really liking this Parade Ground, bye the way. All the IG goodness in one spot. Splendid!

Col. Corbane said...

It's down to the google bot mate and how often it reindexes your site. At the moment, it's only picked up your last post, which is why it's six days old on here and other bloglists like FTW.

As soon as google reindexes your page, it'll update your listing across all the blog lists you're on.

Hope that helps

Dj Batman said...

Hi Col. Corbane!!

Im glad us Grunts and Tread Heads get our own roll!!

I have a number of armies under production with two of them being Imperial Guard!! Vostroyans and Tandaris Forces (Cadian minis)

Im currently holding a poll for what colour scheme to use for my Tandaris forces so I'd love to join the group please!!

CylonDave said...

Hi, I like this idea. I have a Renegade army themed to my Alpha Legion CSM. My FW renegades brought me over to chaos, but I am also a hard core IG player.

http://arkosalphalegion.blogspot.com/

Check out my blog, thanks! =)

NemFX said...

My blog is supposed to be for all of my armies, but the Imperial Guard have pretty decisively taken it over so far. I'm also working on a scratchbuilt Hydra. I'd love to join in the fun, if you'll have me.

Col. Corbane said...

You're on the list now mate, can't wait to see your pics.

Ninjaman said...

Hi, can I join with elysianrecon.blogspot.com?

I have a Elysian army I'm trying to assemble and paint, and C&C, tips, tactics, etc. are always good to hear. Also, It's hard to stay motivated sometimes. So other hobbyists' support is great too.

thepete said...

Here's mine about my 110th Cadian Army that I'm working on.

Great looking stuff, mate, but why aren't comments allowed? I wanted to rave about how marvellous I thought that battle report was and...well...I couldn't.
