Well, one never stops to learn. The picture is from WD 113 (May 1989) and seems to be the first ever appearance of the White Wolves.  The first mention of the White Wolves in an AB is actually in the 3rd Edition Warhammer Armies (1991), as an example of Temple Ritterbruden [sic], which were indeed all equipped with helmet/shield/lances.  The descriptions there says (p. 56): "These are the Templars, religious orders of knights, including such brotherhoods as the Order of the Fiery Heart, who serve Sigmar, the Templars of the White Wolf, who serve Ulric, and the Templars of Myrmidia."

@Sjus: the link simply says: "There is currently no text in this page."

Welcome Sjus! I think you've found the right home for sure! The amount of knowledge and professionalism is simply staggering.

It did not take long to prove Artoban right.

On a side note: fluff-wise, I cannot find any evidence in either WFB or WFRP sources that the Knights of the White Wolf ever were equipped with helmets/shields/lances.  If I am not mistaken, the first time they appear in WFB is the 4th edition Empire AB, where they already have the standard equipment.

Would make a good Nagash - if you catch my drift...

As I said, I have a different experience - but I only really started to post pictures from 2013 on, via photobucket.
To clarify: as fas as I know, oversized pictures were represented within a frame and you had to shift the picture to see all parts (which I do not like). If I wanted the picture to be completely visible without the frame, I always had to re-size it to fit the post.

My personal experience was always that I had to re-size "oversize" (>740 width) pictures myself to make them fit. The only time it happened automatically was during the layout control restriction referred to above.

To clarify: the date of those rules is 2007, and therefore 7th edition, not 6th.

I have got the same or similar from the old GW website - but 372 pages (about 15 pages of rules and the rest scenarios).

I can, but I wish I could not. Prince Carnival there ranks amongst the worst Empire models ever.

Now you see them, now you don't. So, I'll have to replace them all.

It is strange, but sometimes photobucket pictures re-appear, at least temporarily. 
Just to check: are all the pictures in this post visible? Only the first one is embedded from imgur, the rest still photobucket.

Good that I saved copies then. Just the BRB or do you want the Empire FAQ (or any other) as well?

Thank you, Midaski, now it works. One just needs to remove the added width and height numbers, and then the original picture will appear.

In 7th edition swordsmen were the best choice both as parental Regiment and Detachment, no question. Then spearmen, then halberdiers for partental Regiments but the other way around for Detachments. Regiments should be 20-25 strong. Standard Detachments were 3x3.

I am trying to "re- image" the lost pictures from photobucket in my History of the Empire," but for some reason the hight/width seems to be capped at 500. At first I thought it was something I did wrong with imgur, but I tried it on another website and there it worked.

This picture should actually be 715x976, but is always converted to 366x500:



Any advice?

Also fidelis, why are you still on Vista? I cannot think of any good reasons other than laziness or lack of knowledge. You didnt strike me as falling into either of those categories, so i am curious.

My present PC is from 2008; so, I need to buy a new computer anyway soon. Given the prices, it is not worth the money or the hassle to install a new OS.

I cannot see it. I am still using Vista, so it could be that.
