    Sorry to keep you waiting. Just to let you know this is still on the to-do list, but I have a big update in the works right now!


    Looks like an Android update broke this :/ I’ll see what I can do…

  2. Catalogue editor: modifier to set "selections"

    In the catalogue editor you can set modifiers to change minSelections, maxSelection, but not current roster selection.

    For example:
    Unit
    - Joe (min: 4, max: 4)
    - Jane (upgrade, min 0: max: 1)

    1) I can currently set a modifier on Joe to make minSelection and maxSelection become 3 when Jane is selected (modifier being 'set' or 'decrement') and using a conditional.
    Problem: Joe has a up-down number textbox, if we check Jane you have to manually select 3 Joe's.

    2) By using the repeat option of the modifier, I get the same result as above. (NOTE: if using the…

    I think this could be done. Bear in mind adding/removing items from the roster is not as simple as just setting the count. That said, it could probably be done via the current add/remove mechanism to achieve what you’re asking.

  3. Bug: Crashing w/ Horus Heresy

    No error message, just crashes every time I try to create a new list or view an existing one. Happening with both my iPad and Android phone.
    -Battlescribe 2.01.05 (both)
    -Horus Heresy 9.0.1 (both)
    -iPad 2, iOS 9.3.5
    -phone is android 5.1

    No error messages given, just a really long load time follow by crash of the app. Have deleted the app entirely and reinstalled both the app and the data files, still no luck.

  4. Mobile new irritation

    Mobile: Fixig new odd behaviour in program

    Where I use context or shortcut buttons to copy or add a unit the program scrolls the way up to the top of the roster I'm editing. Very cumbersome when editing large armies. Adds minutes to otherwise simple task.

    Example: Imperium army 3 detachment. I'm scrolled far at the bottom to add some finishing dreadnoughts to my army composing of 3 full separate detachments. Done. I'm now copying the dread I added because I want another one. Program scrolls me up to the top of the other 2 armies. I have to scroll…

  5. Allow multiple rosters to be opened at once

    Would it be possible to implement a tab-system where you can keep multiple rosters open at the same time?

  6. Allow moving unit from one force to another

    It would be awesome if, when I'm running multiple detachments, if I could easily move a unit from one detachment to another.

  10. Allow dragging/dropping of units between different forces

    When building armies with multiple detachments/forces, it would be helpful (especially when misclicking) if it was possible to move units between forces by dragging/dropping, since right now you have to delete the original force and then recreate it in the new detachment.

  11. Dice Tool Reroll 1s

    Many rules grant the ability to reroll dice rolls of a particular result, like rerolling 1s. This is different to just getting a flat out reroll of failed results. Could this be added to the dice tool/calculator alongside multipliers, modifiers and rerolls?

  12. Create a new wargamer finder app. A wargaming "tinder" if you will

    Create a new related app that allows me to enter the games I play, where I am, and an ability to say "looking for a game" and be notified when other players in a search radius of my choosing (25, 50, 100 mi, etc etc) are also looking for a game. A bonus to this would be to allow me to only turn on such notifications for certain days (ie. Thursday, Fri and Sat or M, W, Sun etc. etc.). Essentially a tinder but to specifically find wargamers (with possibilities to expand to RPGs, Board Games, and Card Games) interested…

  13. Add a custom unit entry option.

    To help users keep up with the speed of new unit releases (weekly now, in some cases), and to help alleviate the burden on community catalogue creators, allow manual and custom entries to be added to a roster.

    As an example, a user could open up a unit type / role option(HQ, Elite, etc) and there would be a "Custom Entry" selection. When selected, one could just manually enter stats, a total point value, and some miscellaneous text to define a new unit that has yet to be created in a catalogue. This would also help users who create custom…

  15. Favorite Detachments

    It would be awesome to be able to save/favorite an entire detachment similar to favoriting a unit. It would make mixing different Septs/Regiments/Chapters etc. between diffrent lists much easier (makes figuring out what colors to make my units much easier)

  17. Autoselect after min/max modifier

    It would be a nifty QOL feature if BS could automatically select entries if the min/max are identical after a modifier... modified them.

    E.g. you have a min 0/max 1 in parent condition.
    If now a modifier applies to make the min 0 a min 1 in parent (so it is a min1/max1) it should auto set the selections of the entry to 1.
    Currently it "only" throws a validation error and requires user input.

    Not a huge issue, but with the way we had to implement cadia it could save quite a few clicks.

  18. Add ability to disable (not delete) a detachment

    Is it possible to make it so you can disable a detachment, removing it's points and other conditions from the total cost and list legality check? It would make it much easier to experiment with multiple formation lists and keep variations without having to delete and re-create them or have multiple save files (sort of like a side board).
