Default Army List Tool (For FT)

Have been playing around with the army list tool (entered my BFG list) and have a few comments/suggestions.

- The builder asks for the number of models in the units twice. Once in a drop-down menu and then again with a text box. Perhaps the text box should ask for 'detailed squad composition' if it is deemed necessay at all?
- In the Eldar drop down list for unit type there seems to be a small mix-up or two. For example, the ship names include the ship class (i.e. Eclipse Cruiser) when the class is already given via drop-down menu. Also some of the ships don't have this, which seems inconsistent.
- The Shadow Class Cruiser...I don't think there is a 'light' varient of this but there seems to be an entry for it.
- Points cost should probably not be compulsory, as on the board people don't tend to post all the points costs, and without a codex/book next to you it can be hard to translate a list across while remembering all the points costs!

Erm that's it for now, I'll have a more detailed look at a later date!

Do you mean the "Model Count:" and "No. of units to add:" fields?

I see your point and I'll remove the types from the unit type field now

Having a points cost of 0 is accepted

Yeah Model Count drop down list and Number/Squad text box.
