New Blog Layout!

I haven't even been around for 50 posts and I'm ready for a change, haha. I never thought the layout I chose was very appropriate for a blog about my dark red super-humans. Plus the text box was like 4 inches wide and could hardly fit any pictures in, so I looked around for some templates and found a few that I've been testing out. One looked really great with a red angel theme, but was still like 4 inches or less of text space and I don't have the drive to re-write the code for it. The next was a pretty standard red and white layout that was very clean and should just be included in the default selections really. But the one I'll be using the most right now is this one, which I think has a lot of character with it. Nice colors, nice text area makes me think of parchment of a purity seal and it's a wider text area to boot. Some elements came with it like the speakers to either side of the text area are RSS feeds so you can subscribe to the site and the search bar to the left is their own element and not the Blogger one so can't be moved around, but works just the same. I also updated the picture at the top, but it will be changed as soon as I can get a picture of some completed models of my own.

Anyway, let me know what you think! Maybe it's a lot better, maybe it's too busy with the colors, I dunno. I just needed a change, that's for sure.

I don't remember the old layout, but this is kinda cool. The colors are certainly BA friendly, and the general layout is clean. Some of the graphics could use a little tweaking though (such as the curtains around the header, which part to show a fraction of an ancient city, and then abruptly show a photo of your army... and speakers on the sidebars?).

Overall, it's a good layout, but it could use a little work. :)

Hm, I could try cutting out the speakers to make it look better, but not sure about the curtains. I don't see the fraction of the city in the corner; might be just one of those things where different browsers or computers display different results. :-\

Thanks for the comments so far! I'll see what I can do.
