So, my group has about 10 or so games under our belts. I've managed about 3 of those. The rules are so intuitive that we don't have to look at the rulebooks very often.
We've played 400 and 500 point games.

Only 2 of us collect the models. I've got everything I got from the 1st kickstarter and the other guy has everything BWG has released (with the rest on preorder) and the entire line from Black Scorpion, and it's all painted. He just got it in from the painters this week. So, tomorrow, we're going to do a huge "shoot-em-up" with everyone (this could be up to 6 people) playing a gang on one big 4x6 table. It should be TONS of fun.


My group uses Army Builder exclusively to build our armies for our games (40K and BWG). Currently, BWG is... incomplete... on AB.
Necros, I know you've talked about wanting to update the files but just not having the time. Is there any chance you'd "pay" someone to do it? Maybe with models in trade?
I know someone who doesn't play, but might be able to be talked into it. He used to be a 40K file maintainer for the program, so he's familiar with it. I plan on asking him if he has any interest in it, but I'd love the opportunity to offer him a bribe, too. LOL
Just a thought.

I put together some files for BattleScribe that work pretty well, too. It won't give you the stats at the end, it's more just a tool for checking your don't have too many attributes or skills.

I've put the file up on my Dropbox.

Back from GenCon, I have time to think now

Anyway, actually I do have some random models i could give for a reward, but I don't have much. Game Salute has all the stock, they handle all that stuff. I just do the game design stuff. I just tell them what new minis I want to make and we set up a schedule & budget for it. So any kind of gift or payment or whatever has to come from them. I could mention the army builder thing, but to be honest I think if they were going to do any kind of payment for that they would rather it be something more like our own custom gang builder app or something like that.

So anyway.. I have a few minis I could send if that's all he'd want, but anything more than that would require Game Salute's approval

Hey if you want a custom gang builder app, I know an app guy!

Anyways, time to look at that battlescribe file!

If Battlescribe doesn't show the stats, I'm not interested. Ab shows the stats and is simple to use.

@Necros: I'll talk to him. When he was a 40K maintainer, he did it for free. My only concern is that, if he doesn't play the game, he may not be interested. now, if he had models for the game, he might be enticed.
I am contemplating downloading the software and seeing what I can't do with it. My only concern is TIME. Allegedly, the software is not very difficult to build files for.

Re: My next game
The big 4 person game was fun, but a number of questions and "why isn't this in there" rules issues came up. Once I have our questions and thoughts down, I plan on starting a new thread on them.

It would be really easy to have the battlescribe files output the stats. Generally people don't add them to avoid legal things.

Well in that case, I promise not to sue anyone if they put stats into battlescribe

But, how will you control your IP and all of the monieses?
