I've been really impressed with the response to Talk Wargaming since it burst onto the scene at the start of August. So much so that I've decided a professionally designed logo is in order.  

With this in mind I had a look around the Internet and after much deliberation I selected GB Logo Design (the first site I found) and sent them a brief message. 

Surprisingly or worryingly - not sure which yet - they got back to me around 10am the very next morning.  Business it seems is a bit slow at their end, either that or they're super organized. I'll plump for the latter. This firm gets mixed reviews - either 1 star or 5 stars. Review sites should do away with the entire 5 star system and replace it with the SHIT and AWESOME system.

The list of bullet points we decided on (we being myself and the girl in their office) were.

  • Cartoony
  • Bright
  • Modern
  • Fun
  • Image or Text based
  • Possible Fantasy Style
  • Favicon Compatible 

I ordered the top package over there so assuming they're true to their advertisement they'll send along 12 concepts by Friday for a measly £100 - I call bullshit on their "reduction", its reminiscent of the half price sofa sale every furniture store on the planet has been running for 25 years.

They say;

" Perfect if you are not sure about what you want. Our designers will work from the notes or images and digitally design a print and web ready logo for you in all the right formats. We will edit the designs as many times as necessary until you are 100% happy."

I do vaguely remember her saying 6 concepts and not 12. I'm working nights at the moment (actually this is my 24th consecutive shift) and was asleep when the phone rang, well I was asleep for most of the conversation. The concepts are due back tomorrow so I'll post them on the blog and see what you all think , if they look like cat fur balls I'll pretend to cancel the order. 

In other news I'm in touch with a skinner to make some minor changes to our layout here, nothing drastic just a few more column widgets in the footer. He goes by the username Leatherface and said he'd pop over later this evening to show me his work.

Hot On The Wire.

Tutorial: Painting Warlord's Plastic Roman Legionaries

My friend Scott got very excited by my 28mm Roman project. So excited he's been amassing an army of his own. I have to paint them though...
