Midweek Snippets

Well, I don’t know about you, but my week’s already been pretty full of gaming stuff, mostly yesterday. I ended up having my order from Miniature Market come in (containing the Curse of the Statuettes adventure), and then Ray got back from Origins and I got some Muse on Minis tokens for Guild Ball as well as some expansions for Ascension. Now… just need to get to the weekend where I’ll be able to really take a look at all of it, and maybe manage to get them some use.
For that, I need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Advanced Deployment Anniversary Sale Happening Now, BattleScribe 2.01 Released, Sergei 76 Available soon From Klukva Miniatures, Eldertree Gaming Releases New Dice Towers, Commissar Elizabeth Raven Available From Brother Vinni, Stray Dog Minis now available from Miniature Building Authority, Imperial Books of Salvation Available From Kromlech, Dragons Conquer America Legacy Campaigns Coming to Kickstarter October 2017, and Final Days for Samhain Board Game On Kickstarter.

BattleScribe 1.15.00 Released

BattleScribe Army List Creator has version 1.15.00 now available to use.


From the update:

BattleScribe 1.15.00 is now out, bringing a big overhaul of the printout when viewing your roster. The output style has been greatly improved, and there are several new options to let you customize the output to your taste.

Special mention goes to the new “minimal” output option – it reduces the length of the output by omitting list items that aren’t relevant. This really cleans things up so that copying/pasting your list into forum posts and social networks works really nicely.

BattleScribe 1.15.00 is now out on all platforms: Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows, Mac and Linux.

BattleScribe Mobile Redesign

BattleScribe has redesigned the layout for the mobile version of their army creator program. Go have a look.

iOS Editing a roster


From the update:

As of versions 1.14.06 on Android and 1.14.07 on iOS, BattleScribe Mobile has had a big facelift. It’s looked pretty outdated on both platforms for a long time, but now it finally looks at home among modern mobile apps. The iOS update also includes proper iPad support – no more nasty stretched iPhone interface!

On top of this, there’s also been the usual swathe of new features, performance improvements, bug fixes and tweaks across all platforms, including desktop (see the BattleScribe news blog for full details).

This all comes together to make BattleScribe a fast and reliable army list creation tool across all platforms – iOS, Android and Windows/Mac/Linux computers.

Build me an army worthy of Mayhem

Bombshell Games now has their Armies of Mayhem system supported by BattleScribe army-creator.



From the release:

Bombshell Games has harnessed the power of BattleScribe to make building your armies, strongholds, and keeps easier than it’s ever been before. ‘What is this BattleScribe you speak of?’ you ask.

BattleScribe is a fast and powerful army list creator for tabletop wargamers. It allows you to quickly and easily create army lists while validating your points limits and army selections so you can see if you’ve made any mistakes, and the easy-to-read output will summarize your units’ profiles and special rules for quick reference. You can download it for free from BattleScribe.net. That’s right- it’s free!

MAYHEM_Armies of Mayhem_BattleScribe_BrentSpiveyOnce you have BattleScribe, head over to Wargame Vault and download the Armies of Mayhem file pack. Inside, you’ll find the BATTLE CHEST. This is one large list that contains profiles for various fantasy units, creatures, and races that can be built using the rules found in the Battle Chest Edition of Mayhem. These units follow all the unit construction rules found in the book. There are over 100 unique profiles that include: Dark Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, High Elves, Human Empire, Lizardmen, Monstrous Creatures, Orcs, Pirates, Keeps, Siege Engines, Strongholds, Undead, and Woodland Elves.

There’s also the usual round of tweaks, bug fixes and performance improvements.

Your latest rosters will be with you wherever you go – it’ll even sync your list of repositories!

Of course there’s also the usual round of tweeks and bug fixes, so make sure you’re up to date, even if you’re not a Dropbox user.
