Seibertron.com's own Burn has posted a new monthy E-zine covering info, interviews and a peek behind the curtain of Heavy Metal War. Here is Burn's original post with the updated E-zine:



Welcome to "Behind Enemy Lines", what will hopefully be a monthly e-magazine dedicated to all things HMW.

It began by a suggestion from Hollow One that someone come up with an idea to fill in the gap left by Kamjin and Frontline's disappearance.

Thus Behind Enemy Lines was born. The concept is simple, showcase as much of the talent the HMW playing community has to offer as well as interviews, news, crosswords, well, basically anything that can be crammed into it that people will hopefully enjoy.

And hopefully we'll do it monthly!

As of Issue Zero there is only one full time position on the magazine "staff" and that's myself as Editor and Compiler. Will there be other positions opening up? Yes and No.

Because this magazine will be open to EVERYONE to contribute to. Whethere you can draw, write, photoshop, kitbash, compile a puzzle or whatever you feel you can contribute, you can. This is a magazine for YOU made by YOU. There are absoloutely no limitations on it.

Now I think i've just about covered everything in how this is hopefully going to work, so let me tell you about Issue Zero. It's a "preview" issue, 10 pages in total (including the cover). Seems a bit small? It is, because it's just that, a preview issue, to show you how the magazine will be set up.

We've got a sample of a REALLY old interview from Mkall.
Artwork of Gore.
MTMTE bios from Tammuz
A brief excerpt from JP's story for the "Echoes of the Past tournament.
And most importantly, an update on Alpha Strike! :grin:

So enough from me, it's time we got on with the show. At this current point in time you have three options for downloading and reading this comic.

• ImageVenue links, complete with thumbnails. - Just click on them to open them up and read. I went with IV because the files are too large for Seibertron.com's attachments option and too large for Photobucket.

• A zip file hosted at Rapidshare - Just download the file and unzip it and use your image viewing program to read

• A CBZ file hosted at Rapidshare - This is pretty much the exact same file as the zip file, just the extension is renamed. This is the format used for digital comics. To open it you need to use CDisplay to view them.

Yeah, i'll shut up and post now.

[size=200">ISSUE ZERO





{ ZIP File } | { CBZ File }

Any problems with any of the links let me know ASAP!.

NOW GO AND ENJOY!

"Open to everyone". Does that mean my new Machine Wars fanfic series could be part of it?

It HAS to be HMW related.

So feel free to include a short story about Gore and High Command teaming up to beat the snot out of MW Soundwave for "being an under-armed poorly coloured rip off of their God". :P

Just two weeks ago. Been busy learning the gig so HMW had to take a back burner for the time being. I'm still in the fight though.


As for publicity, that was the whole purpose of the FP&C. Maybe we can add to the subfactions now.

That is the plan. I just know that eventually someone's going to take offense and the next issue will include a retraction. :P

What can I say, I live to disturb :twisted:

In a desperate attempt to stop myself spamming, I shall steer myself back on topic.

Any help needed on any feature for the next issue? I finish my dissertation soon so I might be able to help out with some stuff.

See, people keep asking what they can do to help, maybe I should put it in big writing next time.

Whatever people can submit then submit.
