I was just admiring the tactica thread in the Eldar section and some of the very informative posts down in the Grey Knights section and I wanted to get this happening for all armies..
SO! First of all, any existing tactica that has been crafted and not stickied for some ungodly reason send me a link to it and I will take care of that. If any section builds up enough tactica i'll create and archive and update them regularly so that every user in a section can always access and comment on any articles. Make sure anything you send me is up to date (7th Edition, and in the case of codexes, something that isn't pending an update like Blood Angels, Necrons or Dark Eldar) so that it's relevant and useful for the people who are reading it.
SECOND! Anyone who wants to volunteer to create some tactica articles send me a message, send me a link to the post when it's completed and I will sticky it myself. On this I am thinking some reward will be in order for anyone who contributes, i'll have to speak to Fritz about this.. maybe a special title or something.. how does "Adept of the Librarium" sound? I guess that is open to suggestion..
Basically guys going through the threads here it's obvious we have a member base who knows their stuff when it comes to their army, so I want that to be shared throughout the whole community.. it might even encourage some of those lurking guests to sign up and post^^.
Let me know guys, I REALLY want this to happen, I may even start on some Grey Knight tactica myself~
Note. as for 'dexes pending an update, given that you're meant to be coming in short order it might be a better idea to wait for the update to drop, however if you still wish to write for the current 'dex i'll take it, just ensure you update your thread when an update occurs so it remains relevant.
EDIT: Here's a list of volunteers so far, if you want in pm me, there are no deadlines or expectations, it's basically write at will.

Hey guys i've been working with Fritz to get some recognition going for you guys and we've decided to add a special group for Tactica writers! It's purely cosmetic, but you'll have a purple name in the chat.. still working out other details but here's the criteria for entry.
"Criteria for the group- you write a tactica for one of the armies/forum sub sections and its your job to keep it up-to-date. From there it gets stickied at the top of the threads and I'll move the member to the new group. Their posts and everything will still look and work the same- the librarian membership group is only really cosmetic, but a good way to give thanks for the work"
