Reapergames Army Builder

Recommended Posts

I used this for the first time the other night when I was getting forces together to demo the game to an experienced wargamer. I was astounded that 10 minutes after I started, I had datacards, SA Lists and descriptions, Spells and everything I needed for 1000 points of Razig and 1000 points of Dwarfs. <3 Very well done Reaper!

Yes, the army builder is very very useful and I use it every day! Well every week! It is also a great tool for new players giving them access to data cards, spells, and special abilities even before they get access to the rulebook! I have a new player looking into Darkreach right now…

Ok, now that we have all the sunshine and puppies out of the way, I want to complain about the army builder. I only make this complaint as someone that had access to the playtesting one, and miss this feature:

the ability to rearrange models/equipment in a troop. Maybe it is me being OCD, but I like to have a model's gear following it immediately in the troop list. However, I rarely add gear until I am nearly done building a list. On the playtest version, I can move those around by drag-and-drop. I can't do this on the Reapergames version. It is a small thing, but one that keeps me using the playtest version instead.

I don't mind adding more sunshine and puppies onto the pile. The Army Builder is a wonderful tool and adds immense value to the game community. It makes list building an easy and enjoyable experience, as well as making for an essential tool for pre-game prep.

 

That being said, I'd like to make a couple enhancement suggestions. One nearly impossible, one of probable medium difficulty, and one fairly simple. First the simple, I'd like for there to be a tenth Troop. Next, for the medium difficulty, I'd like an Army Equipment section. I don't know why, but it bugs me that I have to put a Luck stone in a Troop. It would also be nice to be able to include a variable-point Totem of Battle. And now, for the nearly impossible suggestion of integrating Change of Heart and Plunder into the Mercs list in Army Builder.

 

Don't mistake the suggestions for ingratitude, Stubbdog. Army Builder is one of the great player-focused tools that sets Warlord apart. Besides, Shakandara started it. ::):

More sunshiney puppies! I love using army builder. It is a great tool.

 

I need to export my results to word to make 'em just the way I want 'em, but that's my OCD kicking in. :;): When I'm in a hurry and just use the regular printouts, everything's fine.

 

Actually, I am usually introducing the game to new players when I play, so I use the army builder stuff to help explain and orient the players. It works great! :wub:

Gus and I built the one in the playtest section and then he moved it over to the Reapergames site. I have continued to tweak the one on the playtest site since after all that is my site. But I dont have access to the Reapergames one. I will see if Gus (or probably more likely Kit) will allow me to have access to it and see if I can at least get it to where my site's version is. and then see if I can implement some of Jeff's requests too.

 

Obviously, there are a ton more features that I would love to implement, just haven't had the time and I admit I am not as strong in some of this as Gus is. He is the better builder, I am more of a tweaker. But hey, it would give me the excuse to learn more too...
