General ongoing Wiki projects[]

  • Special:WantedPages - articles that need to be created.
    • Most of the top 50 are units. But if you scroll down past that, there's some others like autoresolve.
  • Category:Stubs needs going through.
    • {{stub}} is for tiny articles with not much info. For bigger articles, you can replace the stub tag with {{expand}}
    • There is a lot of articles clogging up the stub category which shouldn't be there. For example: Beard-Thing Sacrifice has an unnecessary stub tag.
      • This is a problem because it stops us finding the articles which really need attention.

Project: images[]

The wiki needs more images! More screenshots of units, provinces and game mechanics, especially. Don't be afraid to upload some today! Revoran (talk) 02:58, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Tips for uploading (Dunpeal (talk))
    • Please use the original game file name to maintain naming stardard
    • Please trim edges so that when image is used it looks prettier ;)
    • Please read and check for any warnings, such as duplicate / similar images, to avoid duplications

Main page overhaul[]

What do people think about somehow putting Legendary Lords on the main page? It seems like people pay a lot more attention to LLs than factions. And in most cases factions only have one LL anyway.

Thoughts? Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

That is a valid assessment. I think as well that people focus more on the LLs than the factions. Do you think we should remove the faction crests then? Might get too cluttery with everything together. Hammerture (talk) 22:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)Hammerture
I personally prefer keeping the factions at the forefront to avoid clutter, at least until they inevitably split all the LL's into their own faction. But I am not going to pretend I am any sort of authority on the matter. DonQOT (talk) 01:43, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
OK thanks for the feedback, how about we stick with the current layout for now, but I might set up some unprotected test pages (I think there might already be some existing ones, I'll have a search around) where everybody can experiment to see what looks good for the front page.

Ancillary pages[]

Lead: Dunpeal (talk) - Please contact the Lead with any queries and/or for assistance

  • Objectives:
    • Revision of all existing pages to add / check / update description, flavour text, effects, infobox, icons, images and categories
    • Creation of all missing pages using the ancillary page template: see Double Barrel as a good example
  • Page: New ancillary page template to use - to include the following default ordered sections:
    • Introduction: Short introductory paragraphs describing the ancillary, including any restrictions and key effects, using icons where appropriate
    • Flavour text: Copy of the flavour text from the in-game ancillary description
    • Effects: Copy of infobox effects
    • Notable units / Trivia: units alphabetically, where appropriate
  • Infobox: newer template - Template:Infobox ancillary
    • Type: default 24px icon size and hyperlinked type, e.g. ]]File:Equipment Items Weapon Small.png|24px[[ ]]Weapon|Items#Weapons[[
    • Rarity: using string, e.g. }}Common rarity{{; use rarity TWW1/2/3 label if different
    • Race: default 30px icon at the start and hyperlinked race or specific faction, e.g. ]]File:Vampire Counts.png|30px[[ ]]Vampire Counts[[
    • Introduced: Specify the game version that added the ancillary to the series, use TWW1/2/3 terminology, e.g. TWW2
    • DLC / Character: Specify any required DLC or character (lord, hero) hyperlinking, e.g. ]]The Silence & The Fury, Durthu[[
    • Effects: bullet-point, one per line, default 24px icon for stat or 30px for ability (for visibility) at the start and hyperlinking stat / ability, use effects TWW1/2/3 label if different
  • Categories: newer ancillary management tree to use - to include the following categorisation only for each ancillary:
    • Ancillary: as identified in each of the primary ancillaries, e.g. Weapons NOT Weapon items or Items
    • Game: as introduced in each of the 3 games, e.g. TWW2 weapons NOT Total War: Warhammer II or Total War: Warhammer 2
    • Race: as available to each of the 15 races plus generic, e.g. Wood Elves weapons NOT Wood Elves weapon items or Wood Elves - Weapons, using resized icon hyperlinked race, e.g.
    • Rarity: as ranked in each of the 5, e.g. Common weapons NOT Common weapon items or Weapons - Common


The Special buildings page needs updating. Seems like every patch, a few more landmarks are added.

Furthermore, all the pages for the landmark buildings (see Category:Special landmark buildings for a list) should probably be categorised with stuff like Category:Mortal Empires landmarks and Category:Greenskins landmarks.

Special buildings are my jam, so I will be working towards fixing the red links and adding new ones when I have the time to indulge. DonQOT (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Important articles which need a major overhaul/updates[]

  • Eye of the Vortex - the province list is woefully out of date and the interactive map (while awesome) is out of date Revoran (talk) 08:31, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Unit stats needs[]

We need to think of a better way to handle unit stats, maybe with some kind of automation. It's just not practical to manually update hundreds of unit pages every patch. Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

I think there is a guy running a page that keeps track on unit stats. Might be worth to check it out if it can help us in some way? Hammerture (talk) 22:41, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Faction / race pages[]

There is a lot of unnecessary duplicate info.

For instance, we probably don't need to list every Empire mechanic on both Reikland and The Empire. Ideally, general Empire mechanics would go on the Empire race page. But any faction-specific mechanics could go on the Reikland/Golden Order/The Huntsmarshal's Expedition pages.

On the same topic: faction mechanics need much better coverage, especially for newer factions. Eg: need coverage of all the new mechanics for Greenskins.

I'll try to take a look on this. Hammerture (talk) 22:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Legendary Lord pages[]

Many of these need updating.

You can use Malekith as an example of a good one. --- Revoran

I'll be fiddling around with this one too. DonQOT (talk) 01:47, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Battle maps[]

The Wiki has basically zero information about these. We should probably at least cover the multiplayer ones.

Navbox fixes needed[]

I lack (have lost?) the ability to update navboxes and would like to update two particular matters. Specifically, "Da boys!" (Greenskin unit navbox) erroneously has Night Goblin Warboss in the base game section and the Mortal Empires navbox still has Lothern in the place of Eataine. Could somebody with the authority to do so please correct these? - 21:26, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I think what's happened is that users who aren't logged in have lost the ability to edit these pages. Could you try creating an account/logging in and see if that fixes the issue? If not I'll fix those navboxes for you. ") -- Revoran 22:23, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Beastmen "Beast Paths"[]

So I made a mistake and somehow garrisoned an army into a herdstone while they were in the beast paths and I can't find a way to get them out. is there any way for me to fix this? -- User:XOUTRYDERx 03:54 17 July 2021

Hi OUTRYDER, unfortunately I haven't come across that issue ... it sounds like a bug. You might want to report it on the official forums here. There might be someone else who has had the same issue, so have a look through the forum before posting.
Hope you find a solution and welcome to the wiki :) -- Revoran 09:06, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Something is wrong with the wiki[]

The wikia is working fine, but I cannot access the top sections of every article. Can someone help fix the design of the wiki? I am unable to finish any edits as easily as before.

HorsesDrivingVans (talk) 11:47, 26 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi Horses, thank you for flagging this up. As indicated on the Wiki Discord, this technical problem is now resolved (27 August 2021). Cheers! Dunpeal (talk)
