I'm making files to use with Battlescribe, which is free army builder software that works on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

Thankfully mantic releases their army lists for free, making it nice and easy for me to go ahead and do this without any legal problems. I might even email the end result to them once the project is complete and error-free.

Here's a screenshot for anyone who isn't familiar with the software, just to show how awesome it is:




How to get started:

- Download the latest version of Battlescribe from: http://battlescribe.net/
- Open "Roster Editor" once you've installed it.
- Go to File > Data Repositories in Roster Editor, copy + paste the link below, click add, and then select it and click update.
 
Code:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27484619/index.xml


If successful, Battlescribe will download all the files from the repository, along with applying updates to existing files if a newer version exists on the server.

So, whenever you want to update files to the latest version of the army list, all it takes is a single click... just click "update" again, and you're sorted.

Enjoy!


Update: WorkbenchManiac is working on some of the fan-lists, links are below:

Great idea!

But I seem unable to download any of the files from filedropper. Would it be possible to host the files elsewhere?

EDIT: Nevermind, it works. No idea why it didnīt before, but now itīs fine.

Good to hear, the other options that aren't filedropper are horrible and have ads and make you enter captchas and wait 30 seconds.

I've fixed a few things with the current list, nothing major, just changed the bowmen horde and regiment into solid units and changed the order that looks better. I'll do another upload later.. for now I'm gonna crack on and see if I can get the undead done today too.

Okay, Undead list is now up as well.

I'm gonna call it a day for now, but I'm getting these knocked out much quickly than I expected. Should be able to get them all done by the end of the week... including the orc beta. Smiley

Download away and let me know if you find any errors, a proof-read can easily be done by making a roster with one of each unit, clicking "view roster" than comparing the stats with the original mantic .pdfs.

The "view roster" output seems to have the annoying habit of showing duplicated special rules, not sure if that can be changed, but it is at least possible to remove that section entirely just by deselecting rules summary from the options after clicking on view roster.

"Units" are all the infantry and cavalry units with less than 20 infantry or 10 cavalry, so that I was able to add an auto-checker for the "3 solid units for every 1 war engine/ hero/ monster" rule.


Did I miss something?  Isn't it 1 hero/monster/war engine per solid unit?



Still, looks good dude, gonna download this for sure.

True. That's what I meant, but not what I said. Also, in addition it's 1 hero/monster and 1 war engine for every solid unit so I've already gone back and fixed that.

Ah, oops. After checking the KoW rules it turns out I completely got that rule wrong *again*.

Fixed and re-uploaded the game system file, it's now checking correctly for "1 solid unit unlocks 1 war engine and 1 hero/monster".

So...  How do I remove the original Undead list, as I keep getting an error message as I've added the 2nd version.

Just delete the old Undead.cat file from the catalogues folder, and replace it with the new one.
