Thanks for the sticky Khanaris!

I hope you will be using this, because it makes your lists look very clean, and they will be easy to read for the rest of us. If you have any opinions, please post them and/or pm them to me.

If I see interesting suggestion I will probably edit this to include them. Enjoy folks, and encourage the rest to use this (or something similar).

im sort of opposed to it to be honest. usually i like to just see a space inbetween the units and the little bar kind of throws me off. while undoubtedly good for large army lists id rather see the spaces inbetween smaller ones, seems easier and for me to read but everyone to themself...

The lines are easily removed, those are the <hr> things. What do you mean by large army lists by the way? Most lists around here, I believe, are 1500pts ++.

Yeah that sounds reasonable to me. But, like I stated earlier, it's as simple as removing the <hr> to get rid of the lines.

hey, this is cool, so I'll try it, but I'm not liking all the code junk (no offense, but it's like VB.net at school when I'm here) I may or may not use my normal way, which is easy to read as well. But I have a question, what would be the format for a bodyguard for the HQ, or a crisis team with guys that have slightly different configs, because it doesn't seem to do that. Thanks.

Here's a way I've always found easy to do...

Code:
HQ
  • Insert HQ unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert HQ unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
Elites
  • Insert Elite unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Elite unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Elite unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
Troops
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Troop unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
Fast Attack
  • Insert Fast Attack unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Fast Attack unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Fast Attack unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
Heavy Support
  • Insert Heavy Support unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Heavy Support unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
  • Insert Heavy Support unit name and size here [insert point total here] -put wargear in dashes -like -this
Total Points: Insert point total here
