Hi

I have created this site, it allows you to create Kill Teams for Shadow War Armageddon - no downloads, no app, no downloading data files - register and go.

I am looking for feedback, bugs and ideas to take this site to the next level.

https://shadow-war.zone/

Current Features:
- Create a Kill Team for any faction
- Create Fighters (and Drones)
- Add Equipment and Weapons
- Track points and Promethium Cache
- Add Skills, Rules and Serious Injuries
- Rearm and Recruit after battles

Features Coming Soon:
- A more detailed rules and help section for when you play
- A more streamlined Battle Mode for use during battles
- Add your photos to showcase your minis against the history and stats of your Kill Team
- Toggle a Fighter's state during a battle: Down, Pinned, Out of Ammo

Looks good so far.

The only issue I found so far is the Sisters of Battle Gunner is missing the following Special Weapons: Flamer, Meltagun, and Heavy Flamer.

I'll try to break it later :cautious: when I build other teams and report back on here.

Thanks for the feedback. That issue with those weapons is now fixed, good spot! Look forward to hearing from you again.

I've managed to make my IG team and get 3 battles in, no issues yet, apart from the minor annoyance that every time I add equipment it chucks me back to the top of the page, but I dunno if that's something you can do anything about as I suspect it's part of the refresh.

one thing that would be nice would be a way to see previous battles you've entered. so I can see that in battle 1 so & so got injured, or whoever it was picked up a skill, stuff like that.

Are there any plans to add the specialists? I'm mainly thinking if I was going to print the battle view page to take with me for some games, it'd be handy to have a tick box to make a specialist or 2 appear that I know I will use. Just means all the stats are there and readily available. In a similar vein would you consider adding weapon stats as a summary at the bottom on that view for any weapons in the kill team?

Sorry, just some ideas of what would make it better. It's very impressive already though, don't get me wrong!

oh, and just noticed, where my new guy got promoted to trooper, it comes up saying promoted, but hasn't up'd his stats to that of a trooper (I think the rules say once he gets 3 battles complete and becomes a trooper he gains the stats of a trooper)

Also could the chaos kill team show (maybe under rules?) the mark that has been selected for each guy, I get that it highlights the stat increase which is cool, but somewhere else showing the mark would be useful (no idea how MoT is shown)

One final thing, the percentages don't seem to be working for me, https://shadow-war.zone/edit-killteam/389/red-three-one
This kill team is showing only 65 points in new guys, but it should be 115, same for troopers and gunners, only the leader is showing accurate numbers and I think that's cos there's only 1 of him.

Sorry for all the random things, feel free to tell me to stop if they arnt important :)

I cannot see your logged in %s (can you screen shot) ?

But from the view I can see they are correct it seems? See here https://www.dropbox.com/s/c5yyfqcwsphnyg3/Screenshot 2017-05-16 16.20.43.png?dl=0

That's what I see (in terms of numbers)... but if you add that up.. its only 630 points... but it clearly says I have spent all 1000. How so?

Now that is quick service!

Thanks for taking the time to make this, and then listen to the feedback and improve it :)

Have you considered joining forces with @Malo to become some sort of super techpriest, like the power rangers used to do in the tv show :p

Fantastic work on this. I've more or less ditched battlescribe in favour of using this as a creation tool now.

This may be something id change personally but the size of everything seems a bit large for me. I can more or less view a single trooper on my computer screen - it just all seems rather large. But as i said - this is me personally finding it big.

Also, i may have missed this - a summary section if you print the team would be excellent. It could be compiled from all the special rules and weapons stats from the members of your team. But i appreciate that it could be quite hard to do this.

I have been a bit busy today so not had change to address much of the above. But in summary;
  • Printing is my top issue to do
  • Second is exchanging equipment
  • Then adding all weapon stats
There have been minor updates and fixes today - you can view them here https://shadow-war.zone/change-log

Tell me more about @Malo ?

Have you played necromunda at all? or mordheim or gorkamorka? if so have you seen the gang creation tools here at Yaktribe? (click on the necromunda logo at the top to see that). It has a more indepth gang management thing of what you've created (not saying yours is a slouch or owt, just that there are territory, campaign systems, lots more injuries, etc etc in necromunda that has been put there). All this and the forums, basically yaktribe as a whole... all @Malo .
