  1. I picked this thread because of the title...
    My purpose is that I am creating a set of rules for use with various genres of Chronoscope minis and would like to know what kinds of Special Abilities (Superpowers) would you like to see in those rules for the various Super Hero models in the line?

     

    Thanks!

  2. Followup: I did spend some time reviewing the output routine that handles abilities in the roster and found an error in the data card for the Ivy Crown Archer that caused the routine to produce incorrect rowclasses on the Special Abilities output page of the roster. So while that should not have affected the Edge browser this way, it MAY have seen this as an error, and displayed incorrectly. It should have still printed, but I have seen stranger things happen with microsoft browsers. Anyway, if your output issue was on that page of the roster, then this change could have potentially fixed that. IF however, your problem is within the data card output, please let me know if it still persists after you have gone through the steps indicated in the previous post.

     

    [SOLVED]

    Apparently this fixed the problem according to Wolflord.

    It was a Crusader build and the models I used were the Ivy Crown Archers. The browser I was using was Microsoft Edge.

    Judgement DoctrineWarlord 2nd Edition - page 62  

    Divine Spirit When an enemy non-soldier model is destroyed, it is replaced with a divine spirit. The divine spirit becomes part of the Troop that destroyed the enemy model (ignoring Troop capacity). 
    The divine spirit is a 1-track model, of the same base size as the destroyed model, with the following stats: 
    MOV 6, DIS 6, DV 8, MD 10, #MA 1, MAV 3
    Release the Hounds Garr may be fielded as a unique Sergeant. Garr can only field War Dogs as Soldiers to fill his Troop. Garr can field the Hound of Judgement (and only the Hound) as an Elite.
    Sacred Models with the Summoned SA may be summoned with a Free Action instead of a Specialty Action.

    Crusaders Abilities

    General Abilities
    Name: Description:
    Deflect/# A model with this SA gains a +(#) bonus to DV against ranged attacks.
    Dodge/# A model with this SA gains a +(#) bonus to DV against melee attacks.
    Fearless A model with this SA can never become Shaken and is immune to the Fearsome SA.
    Raider A model with this SA gains +2 to any Discipline Check when attempting to disengage from B2B.
    Ranger/# A model with this SA may conduct a single Move Action, up to (#) inches, during the Pre-Battle Phase.
    Regeneration/# A model with this SA may use a Free Action once at the beginning of each of its Activations to attempt to remove 1 point of damage from itself. This must be attempted at the beginning of its Activation before any other Actions have been carried out. To do this, the model makes a 10+ Roll and adds (#). If the result is successful, remove 1 point of damage from the model.
    Short A model with this SA does not block LOS, nor provide cover, for any models except other Short models. A Short model gains +1 DV against any melee attacks by models with a larger Base Size than it has.
    Summoned (X) A model with this SA does not have to be deployed at the start of the game. It can be summoned during play by (X), and (X) can be anything, such as a model type, SA, Alignment, or Affiliation. If the model is not deployed during the Deployment Phase, it adds no cards to the Draw Deck until it has been summoned into play. By using a Specialty Action, any (X) model may summon up to three models with the Summoned (X) SA into play within 2" of it. The models may not be summoned into the same space as another model, so there needs to be enough room for their bases. However, they may be summoned into B2B with enemy models. Summoned models with the Flyer SA may be summoned as Flying and models with the Burrow SA may be summoned as Burrowed. After models with the Summoned (X) SA have been placed, they may each take one Action of any type. If the summoned model is not a Solo model, it automatically joins the summoning model's Troop, ignoring Troop Capacity. A summoned Solo model will add a card to the Draw Deck next End Phase. If there are no remaining models of (X) type that can summon the model with the Summoned (X) SA, the model with the Summoned (X) SA may not be summoned.
    Tactician A model with this SA grants you a bonus card for your Draw Deck. A player may choose whether or not to include any bonus cards at the start of each Initiative Phase. When the model with this SA is destroyed, remove the bonus card during the End Phase.
    Tough/# Whenever a model with this SA takes enough damage to destroy it, it makes a 10+ Roll and adds (#). If the roll succeeds, the model is not destroyed, but instead is left alive on its last Damage Track. If the Tough model is destroyed by First Strike attacks (the first attack by models with the First Strike SA or the Pike SA), it does not get to make this roll and is instead destroyed.
    Short A model with this SA does not block LOS, nor provide cover, for any models except other Short models. A Short model gains +1 DV against any melee attacks by models with a larger Base Size than it has.
    Melee Abilities
    Name: Description:
    Cleave A model with the Cleave SA does an extra point of damage with each hit when the Attack Check is at least 3 higher than the defending model's DV.
    Disable Any model that is hit in melee by a model with this SA immediately becomes Disabled until the end of its next Activation. If the model with this SA is performing a Fight Action (as opposed to using Defensive Strikes), then this effect applies to the Defensive Strikes of the defending model for this Fight Action.
    Frenzy A model with this SA may increase the number of MAs or Defensive Strikes up to twice their normal amount (or twice the amount they currently have available, in cases where they lose some Attacks, such as from Disable). However, for every extra MA or Defensive Strike taken, the model receives a cumulative -1 penalty to its MAV for all of its Attack Checks.
    Martyr A model with this SA may sacrifice its remaining Damage Tracks to gain +2 MAV for a single Fight Action. At the conclusion of the model's attack, it is considered a casualty and is removed from the battlefield.
    Parry A model with this SA may sacrifice Defensive Strikes to increase its DV when it is the defending model in a Fight Action. For each -1 MA, the DV increases +1. The player controlling this model must declare the amount it will sacrifice before any rolls are made. # MA can be reduced to 0. These changes only last for the current Fight Action. This SA may not be used with Frenzy.
    Pike A model with this SA may make a single Defensive First Strike with one of its Defensive Strikes against any attacking model that Charged it this Activation. For the Defensive First Strike, conduct a single Defensive Strike and apply any damage before the attacker conducts his melee attacks. The attacker's melee attacks and the defender's remaining Defensive Strikes then occur normally. The Defensive First Strike counts as one of the defender's Defensive Strikes. If the attacker has the First Strike SA and the defender has the Pike SA, they conduct their First Strike attacks simultaneously. The attacker makes a single First Strike attack, and the defender makes a single Defensive First Strike. Damage is applied for both the attack and the Defensive Strike, and then the remaining attacks and Defensive Strikes are conducted normally. Pike cannot be used with Frenzy attacks.
    Reach A model with this SA may make one melee attack against an enemy model through/over a friendly model of equal or smaller Base Size. The friendly intervening model must be in B2B with the enemy model, and the enemy model must be directly opposite the Reach model, so the model with Reach and the target enemy are on opposite base sides of a friendly model. The Reach model is not considered to be in B2B contact with the model it is attacking, but its attacks still provoke Defensive Strikes even if the models in B2B with the enemy don't attack. The Reach model contributes to any Support bonuses as if it were in B2B with the enemy model if – and only if – it participates in the combat and makes an attack. Simply standing in the Reach position does not provide Support. The Reach model may only be the target of Defensive Strikes if the enemy model also has the Reach SA. Attacks performed from the Reach position cannot use the First Strike SA. Reach models may perform a Charge Action to move into the Reach position. Warlords and Captains with the Reach SA may perform an Inspire Action from the Reach position.
    Rush Attack To use this SA, a model must use both a Move Action and a Charge Action (in that order). If at the end of the Charge Action the model is in B2B with an enemy model, this model makes a single melee attack against any one enemy model it is in B2B with. The defending model may not make more than one Defensive Strike against each Rush Attack model that attacked it with the Rush Attack. All regular melee rules and SAs still apply. This attack is resolved along with any other Fight Actions performed by other models during this Activation, as per usual combat rules.
    Smite (X) A model with this SA gains +1 MAV when attacking any models of the (X) type. (X) may be anything, including a model type, an SA, Alignment, or Faction.
    Weaponmaster A model with this SA may re-roll one missed attack per Activation. This cannot be used for Defensive attacks.
    Smite (X) A model with this SA gains +1 MAV when attacking any models of the (X) type. (X) may be anything, including a model type, an SA, Alignment, or Faction.
    Ranged Abilities
    Name: Description:
       
    Rapid Shot A model with this SA may use a Specialty Action to increase its #RA by 1 until the end of its current Activation. All attacks are made with a -1 penalty to RAV. This requires two separate Actions: the Specialty Action to gain the extra attack, and the Shoot Action to make the attack.
    Magic Abilities
    Name: Description:
    Warcaster A model with this SA treats Fight and Spellcast as separate Actions and can perform both in a single Activation. Furthermore, a Warcaster does not suffer the -2 penalty to CP when casting a spell while in B2B with an enemy model.
    Special Movement Abilities
    Name: Description:
    Flyer A model with this SA has the ability to fly. When on the ground, the model moves using its regular MOV value. While Flying in the air, the model uses its Special MOV. A model with this SA that is not Flying may become Flying at the beginning of its Move Action. It may then move up to half of its Special MOV. Flying models may land at the end of any Move, Charge, or Run Action, including for attacks made with the Rush Attack SA and the Swift Attack SA, for no additional movement cost. Models with the Flyer SA may begin play Flying. If the model begins play Flying and has the Ranger/# SA, it still uses the # as its allowed movement for the Ranger movement.

     

     

    Can you please recheck the build you made, and then do the build again with a different browser? The only Microsoft browser that has been tested is IE9 in 32 and 64 bit varieties since Microsoft Edge was not available on any machine used for alpha or beta testing. IE9 has a few known minor cosmetic issues regarding its inability to follow W3C standards that are simply not worth the trouble of the workarounds. The public release of the application code has been tested using Chrome (last three versions), Firefox (ver 53) it works on several versions back but with some cosmetic issues, and Safari (last 2 versions), it should also work on the latest version of Opera though that has not been tested either, unless one of the alpha/beta testers used it and did not report it.

    ...The only issue we saw was that it didn't print any of the Ranged Attack S.A.'s. Other than that, great job. 

    Please elaborate on the army build you made including the models (and browser to be sure it is not one of those issues).

     

    I just checked with a Blade Sisters build and a Nefsokar build with a mix of ranged capable models and ALL of their SA's were correctly printed in the roster, both on the cards and in the Abilities section of the output.

     

    I did have to make a few minor changes to incorporate the #models and #damage tracks stats since first making the tool public, but as indicated above, everything appears to output correctly in the builds that I have personally tested.

    The list looks legal, and you are correct about the Skeletal Giant.

     

    Much like my comment from the Dwarven thread, I recommend mixing your grunt models a little more in troop 1 and 2. I'd move 2 of each model to the opposite troop. A couple things are going to happen when you do this, and not all of them are 100% good. Moving 2 archers does dilute your fire-power with them a bit (a single activation of 4 ranged attacks can be more effective in some situations), however, it gives you combined arms in Elsabeth's troop, where you can use them to try to finish off targets that have been wounded in melee. Moving 2 spearmen gives Judas and the 2 remaining warriors some Reach support, letting them play the 2nd line role they are designed for. Also, moving 2 chattel gives Judas something to feed on as well.

  6. Thanks, I completely missed the Duskwidow issue... I guess it was because I added 1 Nightshade and when I increased their number I forgot to look at her troop stat. And I assumed you gave Majestrix the book? 

     

    I had originally envisioned using the raiders to be a hit and run unit with my original plan to have a musician in the troop but ultimately didn't have the points, so the Shadow Tactics doctrine seemed like a potential compromise. I also wanted to incorporate a dragon in this army along with a Shade Beast, though originally I wanted more Beasts, but again the available points just weren't there and I did want to keep the model focus on elves.

    FYI, CAV 2 never saw print. The PDF used to be available for free but Reaper took it down after C:SO launched; now, you'd need to find someone who could share the rulebook and relates files with you.

     

    Good Catch... wasn't thinking about the different versions of CAV prior to C:SO.

  9. Don't bother with CAV: Strike Operations, they are not based on the R.A.G.E. system.

    If you want CAV based on a version of the R.A.G.E. system, you will have to see if you can pickup a copy that was printed before CAV: SO from a used source, maybe the auction site.

    Hi,

     

    I was wondering if there was any copy of the fluff text for Razig's Revenge available. Thanks.

     

    A friend from Russia sent me the pdf that contains the fluff... I will include it in the new unofficial site once I get everything moved over from the development site, which should be sometime this weekend or next week.

  11. Ahh yes... another thread where the army builder question along with datacards has risen it's missing head...

    Just in case anyone else runs into this thread and hasn't found the announcement post - you can find the New Unofficial Army Creator 2.0.1 and information in this post/thread

    Razig was originally introduced in a CasketWorks.  I believe that Reaper has the old ones online somewhere.

    I looked through everything I could find and have not run across any fluff... just the tagline for the faction

    "I'll be takin' yer gold, yer woman, and yer life!"

  13. WHAT'S COMING NEXT:

    I just wanted to take a couple minutes to let everyone know that work is still being done on the new unofficial Army Creator tool. (Especially since I haven't added any new content to the support site, and it is obviously not complete.)

     

    Anyway, the next major enhancement to the new tool will be its integration with Wordpress as an application framework, then the ability to store and recall saved army builds/rosters from within the tool page and the core website will follow at some point, hopefully soon after. The decision to integrate with wordpress was based on the need for a user registration system to handle the ability to save and retrieve rosters (but I did not want it to be a requirement to use the tool), and because of feedback asking for essentially what amounts to a campaign and scenario repository as well. Once completed, these changes should allow for an easier (and quicker) way to add support material (such as errata, downloads, etc.) and new content or possibly enhancements (in various forms) to the website for the game as well.

     

    So here are a few screenshots of the changes as they are in the current development site in case you are interested in contributing and possibly want to provide some feedback. Everything presented here IS subject to change as things progress, but I believe what you see here will remain pretty consistent to completion of the integration and new features. At this point, the builder page changes in no way, except to display your username and a save button for the current working roster. The real estate within the builder is pretty tight already, so these two items may change significantly in location or appearance before everything is completed.

    A PRINT feature (still having issues with pagination with that, I may have to custom write this as well) has also been incorporated so that you can print to whatever output device is available to your browser, which would also include pdf output if you are using a browser with a pdf plugin or native support, such as google chrome.

     

    Please post here in the forum if you have suggestions or feedback.

  14. ENHANCEMENT ...

    Someone mentioned last week that it would be nice to have individual troop points displayed as you build your army as well as having this information on the roster. I know this was a feature that was not part of the original tool, but whatever the user's purpose in doing this, it was something I had started in the fully mobile version, so I decided to go back and revisit implementing this in the new desktop tool.

    Soooo I have just added the Individual Troop Points enhancement to the Army Creator

                                                                                                                       

    ...the build panel showing troop point totals:

                                                                                                                       5aX6zxKPT5eueQJhDuIMew.jpeg

     

                                                                                                                       

    ... first page of the roster output now: (with Troop Points selected)

                                                                                                                       

     

    I_bc4JA3THGLV7y3RXjdRA.jpeg

     

    Of course the individual troop points are optional when you output the roster - see checkbox under the Output Army button.

     

                                                                                                                       

    ... page one of the roster without Troop Points selected has not changed

    (see roster output sample in post previous to this one for that example)

                                                                                                                       

     

    PS: I know the totals between the roster and the panel don't match - when I printed the roster I realized I had forgotten to add the familiar for Ardynn and didn't really wanna go back and do another screen capture of the builder panel - but because of the new design, I was able to close the printout tab, add the familiar to the still existing army build and drag it to the correct position under Ardynn, then reprint the roster with the new changes.

  15. The new unofficial Army Creator 2.0.1 is now available for PUBLIC BETA TESTING at the url included below. As of this moment there are still model images that need to be completed and uploaded, but the tool should produce any roster that the older tool could do with a few enhancements.

     

    FEATURES:
    1) The builder page (and all other pages) may be zoomed in your browser without destroying the page layout.
    2) The Database now includes all available models and equipment for each faction, including the expansion armies and beta factions Razig and Halflings.
    3) A Roster Name may be added for every army build.
    4) Troop names can be used for each troop section (or you can leave empty for the default).
    5) Game Points have been added and are optional unless you choose to use a Battle Totem. (Battle Totems appear on the roster with a strikethru if no GPV was added during the build.)
    6) Number of Troops per Row can be configured for the output. (The default of 4 is odd given 9 total troops but fills the page better.)
    7) Faction Doctrines have been added along with a display of each doctrine in the datacard window using the datacard format.
    8) Models and Equipment within any given troop may be re-ordered within that troop via drag-n-drop with your mouse (does not work with touch devices).
    9) A "mini" instructions block was added as a footer to the troop build area/column.
    10) Army Creator 2.0.1 can be "skinned" with a color theme - though the ability for the user to change the color theme has not been implemented, maybe in a future update.

     

    The Roster Output (Printout) now contains the following additions/enhancements:
    1) Roster Name (optional - faction name is used if no roster name is supplied).
    2) The full Faction Doctrine (if selected) is included as a section on the 1st Roster Page just below the troop roster.
    3) A Warlord Benefits section (if a warlord is in the army) is included on the 1st Roster Page just below the troop roster and after the Doctrine section (if it exists).
    4) Innate Spells are now included on the 1st Roster Page after the Warlord Benefits (if any models have innate spells).
    5) Special Abilities summary for all models in the army are now more clearly broken down by ability class.
    6) The Battle Totem is included in the equipment list of the output.
    7) Equipment items are italicized in the roster to more easily distinguish them from the actual models.

    8) Spellbooks are now essentially a one page reference for spellcasters by providing all of the stats and spells in one place for each caster.


    The Support Site currently provides:

    1) A datacard spreadsheet with a quick-overview of model stats.

    2) All current official errata for Warlord 2nd Edition.

    3) Reference Pages for gameplay, such as Model States, Magic Tomes & Spells (independent of spellcasters), and Special Abilities, with more game reference material to come. (Note: You will ALWAYS need at least one of the books to play the game.)

     

    The Support Site will eventually contain a tournament support tool, campaigns, scenarios, free downloads and other useful information to help you recruit new players and just plain have more fun!

     

    And the current home of the new unofficial Army Creator 2.0.1 is: http://warlord.miniaturegameworks.com

     

    Please report any data discrepancies or functional issues to my inbox in the reapermini forum - thanks!

    Also, we should probably extend a Thank You to the folks at Reaper for granting permission to use all of the data and materials necessary to build this tool.

     

    ENJOY !

    Any idea as to when the public beta test will start?

     

    ...just finished a couple touch-ups like italicizing equipment in the roster output - still working on model images, there are something like 637 models in the database - probably still have a 100 or so left to go.

     

    Target is this Thursday or Friday (Jun 15/16th).
