Not bad at all. Can't believe there is no other comments besides me and jericho
and indeed i also like Annals of Albion. The fine details of photo cropping and NO green arrows etc, really brings professionalism, care and realism. I personally know that it is hard work and takes alot of time to finish up these fine details that a reader may take for granted at a glance, with doing my own AAR. I may go as far to say that sometimes bad pictures can overshadow one's writing in some situations.

Great stuff as always guys!
Good job guys!
And thanks ReD_OcToBeR, I too find arrows, markers and banners jarring in other AARs and feel the time spent on good shots is worth it.
Nice issue, I always enjoy reading it and didn't expect one of mine to be reviewed as they never last long enough.
I am still pretty new to this site, so it's really quite an honour for my AAR to be reviewed so soon. I personally thanked Ariovistus for his review, it and he have been really helpful is pointing out how I can improve the AAR, I'm also pretty glad that my attempts to build a political picture are apparently working out. Thanks to the CQ team for including a review of my AAR, come down, give it a read and tell me what you think:
"All warfare is based on deception. Hence: when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near." - Sun Tzu
Well, that certainly was a good lesson for me. But, About the picture cropping, I just really...don't know hoiw to do so. I'm not a tech wiz and I'm only 13, so I just use the pictures as I take them. But I will try to work on these issues, it may not be in this AAR, but it might be in my next one. For now my AAR has been a switch up between a LOL AAR and a serious, Military orientated AAR. But, I'm just glad to have had an AAR of mine reviewed! Thanks guys.
Excellent work. I especially enjoyed the section on planning your AAR. Makes me wish I had consulted this before starting on my own AAR.
Keep up the great. Looking forward to the next one.
I liked the AAR reviews...I particularly liked how the reviews, when touching upon "negative" aspects that were stylistic in nature, did not come across as heavy handed. Indeed, many times the "negative" was expressed in terms of stylistic preference, rather than speaking in absolutes (an AAR must have etc etc.). Each reviewer put their personal preferences and biases on the table, transparent for all, which allowed me the reader to assess whether or not that AAR may be fun for me to read, based on my preferences. A deft balancing act.
Also, this opened my eyes to some stories I've missed out on.
Cheers everyone, and well done.
