Default Important! Frame for posting Army Lists

Updated

[size=12pt]I have seen many army lists across this forum, naturally enough on this board. I see a lot of cloudy lists which can be anything from hard on the eyes --> near impossible to read. To further help people out, I have made a 'frame' for writing army lists. Feel free to copy and paste this- your army lists will look good, and they will be easy to read for others. It is important that others can easily view your list and get a good overview in order to make a good comment [/size]

Anyway, here's the frame:

Code:
[hr]
[hr]

HQ 1: (insert unit's name and number of models) 
(insert equipment) Total: (insert points) 
[size=7pt] (insert description) [/size]

If you use this code with your army list, it will look more or less like this (just a generic 'random' army list I made quick in my head to provide an example):

Hehe, I am so tired of seeing bad looking armies, had to do some coding for you all :P

No, thus far I have not received any karma. I doubt any mods have seen it, besides I don't think they will give me karma for this. Not that I would not appreciate it, but you know

Anyway, I am glad you will use this frame, hopefully more so will. Maybe we could get a sticky if everyone thinks this is a good piece of work. If not, I'll just "sig it".

This looks good, I have seen your way of posting army list before, and I find it very clear and clean looking.
Maybe I will try it with a army list.

I would appreciate it if you would use this frame/template for your army list posting; at least trying it. The more people posting clean looking army lists- the better! Of course, if someone already has a distinctive way of posting clean lists, then that'd be good as well, however -if- everyone used the same frame, we would have a very easy time viewing eachothers posts (as we will all be familiar with the code)!
