Do you know how to use the Fn/Endn system in this wiki? Because it doesn't look like you're sourcing the articles properly. Here are two examples:

"Born into the noble family of Quenelles, Tancred would inherit the dukedom after his father passed away. Tancred II, like his father Tancred I,[2a][2b]"

Recently you added the bolded part into the Tancred II, but you associated it with the 2a and the 2b sources which are two pages in Warhammer: Nagash. Does those two pages say what you added? That he was born that family and he inherited the regular way? If yes, then it's okay, if not then you need to find a source which can be interpreted that way and correct it.

Another example is Fastric Ghoulslayer article, it has two sources but it isn't sourced properly. You can't just dump sources at the bottom of the page and expect it to work, it's one of the many reason why lexicanum fantasy is so low quality. Besides that it is missing page number and/or chapter number of the sources, they need to be a little more specific than that. You also need to do for images otherwise both them and the articles run the risk of being deleted. Then you need to add the Fn Endn system to connect the text to the sources themselves, add a {{Endn|1}} to the source section and connect it to the text of the article with the {{Fn|1}}, changing the numbers to connect them. Stormhost is an good example of how it should be done.

If you have any question you can ask me.--Ashendant (talk) 07:34, 3 January 2016 (MST)

Thanks for letting me know. Even though i joined a year ago im quite new to editing and creating articles. I mainly just wanted to jumpstart articles that for some reason, had not been created yet. All info in my articles comes from either army books, novels and background info. I have many army books and novels saved on my iphone (which is my main source of editing). I'll put in sources from now on :)
Thanks for your time--User:Hyberius
No problem. Jumpstarting article is something I've also been doing to Age of Sigmar article, and then later I usually try to fill them out as I find more information. Kinda hard since i'm the only guy adding age of sigmar stuff and I don't have all the sources. The most important thing that you need to do when creating new articles, specially when you'e tying to jumpstart them, is adding categories. Even if you have to make new categories to fit them.
Another important thing. You should add a signature when making texts in in talk or dicussions pages. It's supposed to be the little blue pencil between the italic and link buttons, but if you can't get that to work you can add --~~~~ at the end of your text/speech and it should add a signature. I added a bad signature to your above post so you can replace it(through it will give a wrong timestamp).--Ashendant (talk) 12:13, 4 January 2016 (MST)
A few more tips:
  • When uploading images like this don't upload the date on the name of the file. You also need to add category, description and source to it.
  • The first thing you should do when creating a new article or uploading a image is adding a category. Otherwise the article and image can quickly get lost.
See the corrections that Proteus did to you article about the Dread King. Thanks!--Ashendant (talk) 15:05, 5 January 2016 (MST)

Question about Chaos Steeds

I see that you added a Chaos Steed article to the lexi, but with age of sigmar I have a problem. What does the sources that you have say what kind of horses do the Chaos Marauder Horsemen and Chaos Chariot have in WFB. Age of Sigmar seems to gives Chaos Steed to those Marauder Horsemen and then War Steed to Chaos Knight and Chariots.--Ashendant (talk) 13:57, 3 June 2017 (MDT)

Hi, in my army books Marauder Horsemen are listed as having "Warhorses" it goes into further detail that they are more powerful than a regular horse and can be heavily mutated. Like Chaos Knights, Chaos Chariots are also listed as having Chaos Steeds and are ridden by Chaos Warriors. Sadly i'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to AoS, so idk much about the change there :(
My guess would be that a "War Steed" is a new and more powerful version of the older Chaos Steeds.--Hyberius
That's also my assumption.
There isn't that much in AoS either. Slaves to Darkness don't have their own Battletome, so just the Grand Alliance book. I've updated the article with the info found on the product description(from 2016 repackaging) and warscrolls found on GW website.
It might be better to make the Chaos Steed article into the generic chaos horses article and include Warhorses, Chaos Steeds, War Steeds and Daemonic Mounts there. So feel free to dump the Warhorses info over there under a different sub-section in the World-That-Was section.--Ashendant (talk) 14:39, 3 June 2017 (MDT)

Plague Censer Bearer

I noticed you made a Plague Censer-Bearer, when there was already a Plague Censer Bearer article.--Ashendant (talk) 18:18, 10 June 2017 (MDT)

thanks, i'll add any new info to that page and put in a redirect. :P --Hyberius
Adjusted the article a bit so it could be used for both settings an corrected a few mistakes.--Ashendant (talk) 19:15, 10 June 2017 (MDT)

Vargheist vs Varghulf

In the Mortal realms there is a creature called the Varghulf that I think uses the old model for Vargheist. Does any of your sources calls a Vargheist a Varghulf. Because if not I would like to keep them separate. I also fixed Dryad and Branchwraith articles to separate World-that-was from mortal realms info.--Ashendant (talk) 19:07, 14 June 2017 (MDT)

Nevermind I got them confused because their descriptions are so similiar.--Ashendant (talk) 19:23, 14 June 2017 (MDT)

Age of Sigmar

Out of curiosity are you ever going to do any Age of Sigmar stuff? And if not how many books do you have that you haven't yet added to the lexi?--Ashendant (talk) 16:37, 21 June 2017 (MDT)

I haven't got many at the moment, but as soon as I do i will start adding info :) --Hyberius
Cool! Which ones do you have if I might know? --Ashendant (talk) 16:46, 21 June 2017 (MDT)
Just the two AoS Primers right now, i'm hoping to get the Gates of Azyr and War Storm books to get me started. --Hyberius
I only have the very first book and have mostly updating using warscrolls, product descriptions and sometimes the previews.--Ashendant (talk) 16:55, 21 June 2017 (MDT)

List of Creatures of the World-That-Was

Hey, I don't know if you know this or not but there is a list of creatures found in the World-That-Was here. I've noticed that you added lots of creatures articles that are missing on the list. Feel free to update it. Thanks.--Ashendant (talk) 15:18, 27 June 2017 (MDT)


Hey I just noticed that the Grimnir article has no info from the World-That-Was. Do you have any source that says anything about him from Fantasy Battles that could be added there?--Ashendant (talk) 20:35, 2 July 2017 (MDT)


Hey i was looking at the Skarbrand article that you wrote a while ago and noticed that while a source is provided for one of the paragraphs it's not provided for the rest. Does the unsourced paragraphs also come from the Warhammer Armies: Daemons of Chaos (8th Edition), page 36? If it's a yes, I can easily fix this.--Ashendant (talk) 13:52, 16 August 2017 (MDT)

Could you tell me the same for the Wyvern article?--Ashendant (talk) 16:09, 28 August 2017 (MDT)
Hey are you here?--Ashendant (talk) 15:14, 3 September 2017 (MDT)

Hi, Skarbrand and the Wyvern pages are both from their stated sources. sorry about the confusion, i was away for a while and forgot to update the pages.-- User:Hyberius

No problem and thanks for your answer. I fixed the sourcing, hopefully I done it correctly. I'm also doing a recruitment drive to get more editors into the wiki, as i'm a new administrator.--Ashendant (talk) 17:08, 3 September 2017 (MDT)

Henri le Massif

Hello, please provide a visual proof of the existence of "Henri le Massif", thank you. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 13:28, 1 September 2019 (MDT)

Has been cleared up. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 23:06, 1 September 2019 (MDT)
