Skorne and character jacks in!

Hi all,

I am again tired a lot lately and sitting behind the computer figuring out hitpoints and tiers isn't at my mind at those moments, I finaly got an update in.
Since I do not really have the time at the moment and I lost track on what spoilers I did miss, I would like to ask you guys to send them in. I will do the trolls when I have the book in my hands.
What I need is the name, the hitpoints, the FA and special list building restrictions.
If you are missing anything please let me know. I am slacking on some hard to do stuff until I have some time to dive into code.

Thanks for waiting!

What I have done:
Added Skorne stuff
Added: new character jacks
Thanks to Gaarew, Janos and Sagojo: Magnus Tier 2 lists SH Heavy Cav twice, rather than them and the Riflemen.
Thanks to Andrey: I'm playing Khador and I found that when you try to print the roster with damage grids for Karchev 'The Terrible' - there are missing pictures with the 'Body' system. Could it be fixed somehow? :)
Thanks to Elly: Widowmakers are not in Prime Irusk's Theme List
Thanks to Moonova: You have Thrullg down as FA: C it is FA:2 according to NQ#31.
Thanks to Dan: pNemo's tier list is set up way too broad. He shouldn't be able to take either Precursors or Sword Knights and still get the tier bonus.
Thanks to Nathan and John: Warwitch Deneghra's 2nd tier is not counting Warwitch Sirens.
Thanks to Nathan and Janos: The titles for Krueger are backwards. The first Krueger is the Stormwrath, while his epic form is the Stormlord. His warbeast points are the same, so it doesn't matter in that sense, but it does take extra diligence for bringing the list to a tournament.
Thanks to Drew: Viktor Pendrake is a Cygnar Ally model and should be available to Highborn Covenant armies.
Thanks to Kelly: Captain Allister Caine T2 requires two Arcane Tempest Gun Mage units to get the tier bonus. It's currently triggering the tier and bonus with just one.
Thanks to Arian: taking macbain under highborn causes duplicates of macbain and jacks to appear
Thanks to Nick: Can we get this fixed please. Steelhead Riflemen should be included in offering the T2 bonus. Thanks.
Thanks to Frédéric: The Hammersmith have no range attack and is not in the tier of Haley.
Thanks to Frédéric: Thorn is a light warjack and do not count for tier 4 for Haley

Little update, quick fixes for the last release

Green highling for models in tiers
+1 FA for all Farrow stuff (thanks to relasine)
Magnus tier 2 can have all steelhead stuff (thanks to LaBambaMan)

Messed up Magnus

Ok, I messed up Magnus, working better now!

Merc tiers are in!

And not only that, also:
Added Drake MacBain
Added Thrullg
Added taskmaster
Added Lord Carver, BMMD Esq. III
Added Thornfall Alliance
Added Skinwalkers
Added War Hog
Added Gun Boar
Added Woldguardian
Added Swamptroll
Added Skinner
Morghoul tiers
Thanks to Austin: For the donation!
Thanks to Deacis, Xas and Vinnie for the general help
Thanks to Travis: eSorscha's tier list grays out when you select Winter Guard Mortars or Field Guns; she should be able to take them as far as I can tell.
Thanks to Travis: pButcher's tier 4 doesn't allow the Marauder, and has the Vanguard as a requirement for some reason.
Thanks to Tonichaotic: The blood witches in cryx are displayed as having a base unit size of 3. They are a normal 6-person unit.
Thanks to Mocaw: 1. Retribution of Scyrah: Ravyn's tier list level 2 bonus should read: "free Eiryss, Mage Hunter Assassin, Nayl, or Narn." Narn is also a "Mage Hunter of Ios" solo, and is specifically listed as required for tier 3.
Thanks to Kelly: 1. Cryx: Epic Deneghra's Tier 2 doesn't trigger correctly. I add two units of Bane Knights, should get a free Machine Wraith. Because T2 doesn't trigger, T3 and T4 never kick in either.
Thanks to SnakeEye: The Harbinger Tier 4 benefit makes all heavies 1 point cheaper (including the Avatar). That's not working.
Thanks to CyrDraconis: Woldwatcher changed to 5 points. No other pointcost changes for Circle that I noticed.
Thanks to Carsten: - Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters have an animosity to blighted models, i.e. to Bloodgorgers or Gerlak Slaughterborn, which is not yet covered in Forward Commander.
Thanks to thePlotDevice: The razorworm for skorne is missing
Thanks to Travis: Taryn di la Rovissi shouldn't be able to work for Khador.
Thanks to Stachelbaer: Epic Severius Tier List allows the Avatar of Menoth, which is not included in Forward Kommander.
Thanks to Batma: I wanted to write you that there is a small typo in one of the trollblood model names. The model in question is Stone Scribe Chronicler (Trollblood solo), however army creator has it listed as "Stone Scibe Chronicler" (missing a "r" in Scribe)

Cryx tiers are in!

It took some time, but finally! I left some bugfixes over for the next release, but at least now we have cryx and some of the fixes.
Thanks to Sara, for moving in, love you and can't live without you!
Thanks to John, Vinnie and Xas: Added cryx tiers and missing models info.
Thanks to Tom, John and Eric: Hey. Thanks for the great tool. It's awesome. Just wanted to let you know that Narn and Eiryss both count as Mage Hunters for Kaelyssa's 3rd tier lists, as currently it's impossible to get to Kaelyssa's Tier 3 or 4 with ForwardKommander.
Thanks to Adam: Just wanted to point out epic irusk tier should allow widowmakers. Thanks for all your work on this great tool.
Thanks to Sasori and Tim: I would just like to point out that the Amon tiers are broken. I think it's due to the fact that the Order of the fist solos are not listed in the tier one specifications, so when you try to add one, the tier goes away.
Thanks to Arekku: In tier-1 of the "High Exemplar Kreoss" there are a mistake, puts "blessing of vengeance" as correct option and is not like that, the correct option is " fire of salvation".
Thanks to Arian: I noticed you included the Cephalyx Mind Slaver & Drudges in the 4* list they are unavailable to take in any merc contract. just letting you know so there is no confusion for people using your list builder
Thanks to Richard: Hey, just thought I'd notify you, Dawnlord Vyros' tiers are wrong, tier 1 does not include the Dawnguard Scyir
Thanks to John: Epic Feora tier list is broken. Tier 2 it says you need 2 Temple Flameguard units, but it allows Flameguard Cleansners and Daughters of the flame. When it really is just Temple Flameguard.

On the NQ and Merc stuff!

Why is the cryx book taking so long?

The reason for this is simple. I am having a hard time getting my hands on the cryx book.
With the cryx book I am hoping to fix the other small thing you people have been reporting, so I am listening!

New TGN Battle Challenge





I noticed tabletop gaming news is having a new battle challenge, called "TGN Battle Challenge: Hordes Builder", so join in on the fun build some hordes armies in FK and paint some up!

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Preview update/Menoth tier fixes

Fixed:
* Warpwolf stalker
* Shea tiers
* Diretroll bomber
* Titan sentry
* Missed the steelhead riflemen
* Rezniks Tier 1 also reduces the cost of the Reckoner Jacks by 1.
* Epic Severius's tier list breaks when you add the Covenant of Menoth - which is required for tier 2.

By the way, I always forget to mention this, but thanks all for the feedback! It makes this tool work.
Sadly I do not really have time for bigger updates at this moment, but I still hope you are happy with it!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Here are the menoth tiers!

Finally the menoth tiers are done! Note that they are in beta, so please please let me know if you find anything wrong with them. The tiers are kind of hard to do because of all the countless options and also we are trying to get my house ready for my girlfiend to move in which take quite some time. Enjoy!

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Little time, is little update

What I did:
* Added the Errant Exemplar UA
* Really fixed Mortenebra Tier 3
* Fixed the Arcane Tempest UA for Kara Sloan tier 1

Up next are the Menoth Tiers, whenever I find some time.

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Small fixes

* Added Hammerfall High Shield Gun Corps Officer & Standard
* Added Horgenhold Artillery Corps
* Mortenebra tiers

Bugfix release for Forward Kommander

In between demanding RL stuff, I got this fix in for you guys, enjoy! And please let me know any problems.

* To much sorting arrows for jackmarshalling weapon attachments
* Multiple warcasters seems to be broken
* New models:
* Exemplar Errant Seneschal
* Vassal Mechanik
* Statyxis Blood Hag (Unit not there)
* Bane thrall Officer & Standard
* Tier problems:
* Lord Commander Stryker's theme army is incorrect. It decreases PC of StormCLADs by one, not Storm LANCEs. The same mistake is present in T4 - it requires two Stormclads, not two units of Storm Lances.
* Siege tiers - Trencher Infantry and Trencher Commandos get the -1 bonus, not Rangers.
* Karchev's tiers don't allow Behemoth. He should be allowed.
* Karchev tier 3 only requires one unit of Greylords, you have it requiring two.
* Vlad Tier 4 requires only Berzerkers and Drago to be valid, you have Marauder listed.
* I Believe Winter Guard weapon crews count as "Winter Guard units" for Sorscha's tiers, but they aren't showing up as such.

Monday, April 12, 2010

At last! A new release, and not a small one this time!

The tiers of Feora, Retribution, Cygnar and Khador have gone into beta, so feel free to test them and please send feedback to info@fowardkommander.com. The tiers have been a lot of work, because of the interaction between some of them and the configuration for each warcaster is fault sensitive.
Other great news is that I now have a sponsor, as you can see. They also helped me with the new kick-ass logo. So if you want new mini's look at www.miniaturemarket.com first.

All fixes in this new version:
* Changing amounts does change the sort order if more of the same
* Cygnar tiers
* The Tier 2 for Ravynn says you get 1 free mage hunter SOLO, not just stipulating its a free mage hunter assasin. So you can have an assasin, Eiryss or Epic Eiryss for free. On Eiryss' card its states she is a mage hunter, that how this can be done because of that wording. (Great program. I was making a retribution list with Ravyn when I noticed her Tier was set up wrong. Tier two is limited to Mage Hunter Assassin when it should be any Mage hunter solo (Narn, Nayl, Eriyss or the assassin). Also doing the list I could get Tier one to light up and tier their but two never turned orange.)
* Feora tiers
* Khador tiers
* units with FA:U due to tier are only showing 6 size option
* New banner
* Added venethrax
* Added vindicus

Monday, March 15, 2010

The new fieldtest is in the force constructor!

Here you are!
Also fixed the drudges, which really are 4/6, sorry for the confusion.

Lone Wolf threatening Forward Kommander to sue over "Army Builder"

Just before the weekend I got an email from a legal firm called LemeryGreisler. If you are interested in what a Cease or Desist looks like, I have uploaded it for your amusement here. In short they are threatening to sue me over the trademark "Army Builder" owned by the company Lone Wolf.

As an European citizen I am maybe a little soft, but at this side of the ocean, we first try to solve problems like this without treats and lawyers. I have chosen to comply, simply because I am not looking forward to legal action even when I doubt they have a strong case, or at least would have in Europe. I would prefer to fight them on software quality, features and price point and not something as childish as this.

So in short I have removed all references to this product as "Army Builder", but the mk2 hordes armies update was delayed by this stuff, what's in the new update:
* New field test stuff
* Typo in epic sevvy
* Taryn not in 4 star
* Add trolls to highborn

The next thing I am going to pickup is the login problem some people seem to have. I think this is very serious problem and if you are having this problem, please let me know.

Monday, January 25, 2010

Got the new previews in!

* Mortenebra cant get a skarlock, because she already comes with skarlock 2.0
* Ghordson Avalancher
* Exemplar Cinerators
* Vigilant
* Warwitch Siren
* Rutger Shaw
* Taryn di la Rovissi

Friday, January 15, 2010

Here, tada, enjoy (mostly teaser stuff)
* Decimator had wrong points cost
* flamers
* new MoW
* new Trenchers
* new Cygnar tower thing

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Did another release

New features/fixes:
* Prime jacks
* Trenchers was already 6/10
* The Arcane Tempest Gun Mage Officer's 'jack marshal rule is not working in Highborn. He should be able to marshal mercenary 'jacks as he is now a mercenary model.
* Same goes for trencher UA with magnus
* Vyros, free UA does not count toward FA, but it does, same goes for the UA of kaelyssa
* Lanyssa Ryssyl is missing from the Highborn Covenant.
* Right now you can put Fiona and Harlan Versh in an army together which is illegal due to his Animosity: Thamarite.
* Also fixed other animosity problems
* A&H are not two models in the list (wrong icon)
* Problem with load screen, no scrollbar when there are to much entries

Monday, January 11, 2010

Ugh, bad version yesterday

Now the Cygnar units are at the proper merc contract.

Sunday, January 10, 2010

New stuff:

What I have done:
* Adjusted the trencher cost
* New stuff for 4 star
* Searforge +1 FA for all non character models
* Copy to clipboard
* There were problems with system resources used for a login.
Sadly I did not get everything done I wanted. Leaves me something for the next time I have some time on my hands.
Also I have decided that I will not put any effort in creating new Tiers for now, and wait for the Cygnar book. Because they are very hard to do and are better done when I know all the varieties.
