Guide to Tables
« on: November 24, 2006, 09:51:21 AM »
Not everyone can understand computer coding.  But, with some simple instructions, any can turn a statline that looks like this-

M WS BS S T W I A Ld
4 3 3 3 3 1 3 1 7

Into this-

MWsBsSTWIALd
Generic Human433331317

The following tells you how to make tables that will make your home made army books look clear and professional.



Follow the code below and all you need to do is replace the stat values.  Replace the numbers, not the letters that say BS, WS, etc.

Almost every army is comprised of basic troops.  The following statline can be applied to any basic sort of troop, ranging from spearmen to Ogres.  This can also be used for Lord and hero characters.  They look like this-

Here's the code for it-
Code: (WHFB units) [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[td][b]M[/b][/td]
[td][b]Ws[/b][/td]
[td][b]Bs[/b][/td]
[td][b]S[/b][/td]
[td][b]T[/b][/td]
[td][b]W[/b][/td]
[td][b]I[/b][/td]
[td][b]A[/b][/td]
[td][b]Ld[/b][/td]
[td][b]Pts[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Human[/i][/td]
[td][i]4[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]7[/i][/td]
[td][i]x[/i][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

If you want to add an additional stat line, like for a unit champion, simply add the following code before [/table]

Code: (Additional Statline) [Select]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Human[/i][/td]
[td][i]4[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]7[/i][/td]
[td][i]x[/i][/td]
[/tr]



Cavarly units generally have 3 statlines, 1 for a basic troop, 1 for a unit leader, 1 for the mount.  I've provided all three into the table below.  I also added into the provided code the statline for the sergeant.

[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]5[/i][/td]
[td][i]x[/i][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

For additional statlines, add the additional statline code (The one for infantry) before the "[ tr]" that comes before the row that says "Generic Mount".



Now for chariots.  When using a chariot statline, don't replace the "-".  Here's an example-
MWsBsSTWIALdPts
Generic Chariot---55----x
Generic Chariot Crew-3-3--317-
Generic Steed83-4--31--

Here's the code for chariots.  Remember you can't add additional statlines for chariots.
Code: (Chariot Statline) [Select]

One of the most potent weapons in this game are warmachines.  They, like chariots, use a table that cannot have additional statlines added to them.  A standard warmachine statline looks like the following-

Code: (Warmachine Statline) [Select]

[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]1[/i][/td]
[td][i]7[/i][/td]
[td][i]-[/i][/td]
[/tr][/table]

Since warmachines need a weapon of some sort to be effective, here's a table that can clearly present the stats of the weapon.

NameRangeStrengthDamageSaves
Generic Warmachine Weapon48"10D3No Armour Save

Code: (Warmachine Weapon) [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Name[/b][/td]
[td][b]Range[/b][/td]
[td][b]Strength[/b][/td]
[td][b]Damage[/b][/td]
[td][b]Saves[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Warmachine Weapon[/i][/td]
[td][i]48"[/i][/td]
[td][i]10[/i][/td]
[td][i]D3[/i][/td]
[td][i]No Armour Save[/i][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

You can add additional statlines to this table.  Just add the following code to the above code just before where it says "[/table]"

Code: (Additonal Statline) [Select]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Warmachine Weapon[/i][/td]
[td][i]48"[/i][/td]
[td][i]10[/i][/td]
[td][i]D3[/i][/td]
[td][i]No Armour Save[/i][/td]
[/tr]



Lastly, range weapons for troops.  No one in there right mind would go into battle unarmed.  So, if you want your troops to have special ranged weapons, this table lets you easily present the stats for said weapon.

NameRangeStrengthRules
Generic Range Weapon16"3-

You can replace the "-" if you want.  Any special rules for the weapon go there.

Code: (Range Weapons) [Select]

[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Name[/b][/td]
[td][b]Range[/b][/td]
[td][b]Strength[/b][/td]
[td][b]Rules[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Range Weapon[/i][/td]
[td][i]16"[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]-[/i][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

For additional range weapons, add the following code.  As before, add this just before where it says "[/table]"

Code: (Additional Statline) [Select]
[tr]
[td][i]Generic Range Weapon[/i][/td]
[td][i]16"[/i][/td]
[td][i]3[/i][/td]
[td][i]-[/i][/td]
[/tr]
