Best editor program for Battleforce sheets?
« on: 24 March 2022, 08:37:55 »
Pretty much what it says on the title. Now that IntOps is out, what's the best program out there capable of generating and printing Battleforce record sheets? Do any of them have features like being able to assign names to Lances/Stars, or replace the default art with that of the unit in question? Anything else I'm forgetting?

I'm looking for something that will allow me to build sheets for a regiment in an afternoon of two, not a full year.

Moreover, I am once again reminded that my computer isn't really a computer, but a Chromebook. I have that and a Kindle tablet, and those are my ONLY machines. Do I have any options?

I'm not by a PC, but I believe that Solaris Skunk Werks can do it.

So it's not the traditional record sheets that I'm used to from BattleForce 2, but it still accomplishes the same thing. Solaris Skunk Werks might be your best option.

Unless... you use Heavy Metal Pro. You'd have to update all the unit information, though.
