Oh snap!! Dirty pool... Royal guard were in my list too!! Nuts. Fair game, just like patents I guess, if it's a good idea and you get there first it's your ;) Still... nuts!!
I haven't "patented" anything - I certainly wouldn't lay claim to the idea of elite Wolf Riders, since it's kind of an obvious idea in an army full of Wolf Riders!
I haven't finished my black and white version yet, and you're already up and done.
Well I have the advantage of already having a full Armies book to crib formatting from. Once you have the stat blocks sorted out, it's pretty easy to get everything looking right. I literally just copy and pasted stuff from the Chaos Dwarf list and changed the words and numbers. Simple.
Soooo...with that in mind (and here's where it gets a little bit awkward), while I'm happy for you to use whatever ideas of mine you want for your project, I'm going to have to keep the actual document, my prose and design work to myself. If I was involved in putting together this book you want to do, I'd happily contribute any stuff I could, but since I don't have the time for a collaborative project at the moment, I'll have to remain a source of ideas only.
I don't mind uploading a Word document with the table formatting for the unit entries though. It's more complex than you might think.
