Guide to Tables
« on: June 5, 2006, 11:51:57 AM »
Admit it.  No one likes to look at a custom armylist and have units stats look like this;

WS:5
BS:4
S:3
T:3
W:3
I:5
A:2
Ld:9
Sv: 3+

So, that's why we have tables.  Tables can make units stats, and even weapons, look professional and look alot like GW's official codices.

First up to bat, we have 40k unit tables.  They look like this
NameWsBsSTWIALdSvPts
Generic Trained Solider33331317-x

Code: (40k unit) [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Name[/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]Sv[/b][/td]
[td][b]Pts[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][b]Generic Trained Solider[/b][/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]1[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]1[/td]
[td]7[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[td][i]x[/i][/td]
[/tr][/table]
Simply replace the stats on the second row with the unit your creating stats.  If you want to add another row of stats, for a sergeant for example, add the code below just before where it says [/table]

Code: (Additional Statlines) [Select]
[tr]
[td][b]Generic Sergeant[/b][/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]1[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]1[/td]
[td]7[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[td][i]x[/i][/td]
[/tr]

On to....WHFB units!  Now, I know this is a Warhammer 40k site, but we do have a good number of fantasy players on the site, myself included.

Fantasy units  are very similar to 40k units, only they have a Movement value, while lacking a Sv value.  So we just need to adjust the tables a little.  Follow the code below and all you need to do is replace the stat values.  They look like this-
MWsBsSTWIALdPts
Generic Human433331317x
Generic Sergeant433331327x

I added an additional staline, just to show you how it looks.
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]
Like 40k units, if you want to add a sergeant, or an additional stat line, 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]

As we all know, vehicles play an important role in the 40k universe.  So, here's a table for them.  Like other tables, you can ad an alternative statline by adding the second set of coding before [/table].  Here's a sample

NameTypeFrontRearSideBS
Generic VehicleTank1010103

Code: (Vehicles) [Select]
[table][tr]
[td][b]Name[/b][/td]
[td][b]Type[/b][/td]
[td][b]Front[/b][/td]
[td][b]Rear[/b][/td]
[td][b]Side[/b][/td]
[td][b]BS[/b][/td]
[td][b]Pts[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Generic Vehicle[/td]
[td]Tank[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]X[/td]
[/tr][/table]
Code: (Extra Vehicles Statline) [Select]
[tr]
[td]Generic Vehicle[/td]
[td]Tank[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]X[/td]
[/tr]

For walkers, like dreadnaughts and warwalkers, use the following statline-

NameTypeFrontRearSideWSBSSIAPts
Generic WalkerWalker10101044642X

Code: (Walker Statline) [Select]

[table][tr]
[td][b]Name[/b][/td]
[td][b]Type[/b][/td]
[td][b]Front[/b][/td]
[td][b]Rear[/b][/td]
[td][b]Side[/b][/td]
[td][b]WS[/b][/td]
[td][b]BS[/b][/td]
[td][b]S[/b][/td]
[td][b]I[/b][/td]
[td][b]A[/b][/td]
[td][b]Pts[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]Generic Walker[/td]
[td]Walker[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]6[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]2[/td]
[td]X[/td]
[/tr][/table]
Code: (Extra Walker Statline) [Select]
[tr]
[td]Generic Walker[/td]
[td]Walker[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]10[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]6[/td]
[td]4[/td]
[td]2[/td]
[td]X[/td]
[/tr]

Finally, weapons.  No army wants to go into battle unequipped.  So here's the weapon table-
NameRngSAPTypeSpecial Rules
Generic Weaponry24”3-Rapid Fire-

Like unit entries, you can add additional rows, by adding the second code before [/table].
Code: (Weapon Stats) [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][b]Name[/b][/td]
[td][b]Rng[/b][/td]
[td][b]S[/b][/td]
[td][b]AP[/b][/td]
[td][b]Type[/b][/td]
[td][b]Special Rules[/b][/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td][b]Generic Weaponry[/b][/td]
[td]24”[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[td]Rapid Fire[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
Code: (Additional Weapons) [Select]
[tr]
[td][b]Generic Weaponry[/b][/td]
[td]24”[/td]
[td]3[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[td]Rapid Fire[/td]
[td]-[/td]
[/tr]
