Narrative is certainly the way I like to go when collecting, building and painting miniatures. They haven't properly gotten to the table yet (only the once with my Skaven, pre-General's handbook)!

Still, I like to think about how different units across different factions would meld together under a common uniting theme or circumstance. I've starting drafting my own Warscroll Battalions to do just that for fun - to address some of the missing thematic forces from yesteryear - as an example, Brayherds with Marks of Chaos, that sort of thing!

I do have a question, how would you suggest keeping track of and sharing your built up fluff for your force? Maybe a blog?

Blogs are great and keep you focused yourself. You could go one step further and join one of the many online campaigns. I have one myself over at theriseofempires.com

but there are few more o. Here too, like @Darth Alec 1k army project
