Star Wars Miniatures Battles squad builder?
« on: June 10, 2014, 03:21:18 PM »
I have been looking for a squad builder for the old WEG Star Wars miniatures Battles game. So far my search has no found anything. Does anyone know of a squad builder for this game?

I thought that might be the case, but I thought that I'd give it a try. I'll just have to do it the old fashioned way.

Oh, thanks, but I have all of the rulebooks and know how to point out squads. I was just looking for a program that could do it for me and hopefully faster.

If you had a Yahoo mail account, you could join the SWMB Yahoo Group. There's lots of data , pics,  extra rules, and so on. I can remember a Ruleset "third Edit. "made by Swmb fans that includes Many excell builders for anything you need.
Cheers! .

fairly easy to knock up in Excel using Macros I'd wager, I recall having to make something that would do the job as part of a course years back - a system with lots of drop down menus to select each bit you want - that or use VB. Note at this moment in time I am not offering to make it, but if I do ever get around to doing something I'll happily share it. it would be rudimentary and not full of fancy graphics mind you  ;)

There is an old threat from another forum that has a link to a '3rd Edition' of the SWMB ruleset. It has adopted all sorted of bits form episodes 1-3 and the EU. http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=288671
A big download that has many excel sheets for making squads by side and era. Not a bad resource, however as much of it is taken verbatim form WEB's original; I'm not so sure of it's legitimacy. You'll find the link around 4th December 2012!

I've also attached my own simple generator (using Apple's Pages, I exported a docx but some of the formula may not carry over)
