Default Battle board

Has any one used the battle board program they talk about on 40k online.

Is it good enough to be used.

It works, and it's decent enough to play combat patrol games with. It was never finished, though, and it shows. For example, the chat function is horrible (but you can use MSN or whatever instead), and if you don't quit a game properly it does odd things..

That said, it's perfect if you ever want to play a game over the internet just for kicks. It has everything needed to play (templates, LOS check, dice, etc), it's to scale, it measures your movement, it has nice maps, etc. The only thing missing is a good set of models.. It has several models for infantry, but only a few tank models. (Though IG is included)

Yeah-

I'd love to play people from the forum. (However I'd probably lose... I've only played like 10 games)

Still it would be really fun.

Hmm... yeah I'd like to play, Recoilless.

Where do you live? (As in, roughly. I'm not a stalker, I just want to know to figure out time.

I live in the Seattle area of (the state) Washington. So Western seaboard.

EDIT: Just downloaded battleboard_b5... I'm going to figure it out now.

Oh, before you start, READ THE README FILE! Both for Battleboard and for the army editor. Really, it makes life so much easier..
