The Glorfindel error also exists on the SBG sheet
Cheers

Hi LonelyKnight,
yesterday I used your army building tool for two lists (good: Minas Tirith and Dol Amroth, evil: Angmar). It's really a great tool and very comfortably to use.

But I found three small bugs in the final lists, two tiny ones and one a little more substantial. I tell it here to you:

- Faramir in heavy armour and shield got the special rule "woodland creature". This cannot be correct. I think it's even wrong for him as captain of the rangers.
- At the bottom of my Angmar list there appeared an additional heading "goblin town" without any data. I checked, the goblin town sheet did not contain any data input.
- And the last one, the movement attribute in my lists was printed as 6"/ 15 cm. In my German army book it's 6"/ 14 cm. That's really not relevant, because since The Hobbit-rulebook all distances are measured in inch only, but I wanted to make a remark as I'm just writing this post anyway.

I'm sorry, it's somehow injust to write so much about bugs and so little about the advantages of your tool. It should certainly be reversely! Thanks for your work and maintanance!

Just to let you know it's in the FAQ's all the ranger captains got woodland creature added to their profiles just so they match up with the rangers and ithilien.

In the Kingdoms of Men errata part of the FAQ, Faramir, Madril and Damrod all got Woodland Creature (regardless of equipment). EDIT: just beaten to it.


Thanks for the time and effort to create the MESBG version. Just noticed Knights of Rivendell don't count as having bows, which I believe they do now (at least for the time being, they no longer are exempt from the bow limit as the army list that rule was part of no longer exists).

Thank you, infinateremains, for the Information about the new (?) special rules for ranger captains in the faqs. I played SBG with MT up to now following the old rules und found it paradox that Damrod was not as agile as his rangers in woodland.

For Faramir as ranger captain it's a reasonable rule too, and if Faramir is wearing armour, why should he loose his abilities.

So I'm pretty content with these amendments. I will check the other errata to the old army books too. Maybe there are more such positive surprises.

And thanks to LonelyKnight for keeping your tool up to date with the SBG rules.

First one was already answered twice :P, FAQs add all sorts of little differences.
Second one is a formula pointed to the wrong place, hopefully that's the only one in that column.
Third one is actually a direct conversion in case someone only has cm rulers.
The current game has no cm values, considered actually removing all the cm values.. ended up leaving the direct conversions instead (1" = 2.54 cm).

Rivendell Knights... yeaaaah I haven't actually used them once, didn't remember they had bows at all :X

Gonna upload now

And don't worry about reporting bugs, that's what the thread is for after all

First of all thanks a lot for the amazing spreadsheets, very clear and awesome. Use them a lot.

However, in MESBG I noticed when I select Halbarad and Arathorn in the Rangers list it doesn't register the points for Arathorn.

Well, 0 points for Arathorn was a welcome upgrade though :)
