My Fantasy Battle recorder and Warhammer league table website is now available.
|by quidam Corvus (see footnote)|
Battle Recorder SummaryThe website collects your battle details, archives them and summarizes the results. You can include links to your websites/blogs or YouTube battle reports and/or add notes to each battle.
Each user is ranked by their performance and the most successful commanders (it could be you!) are shown in the Legends and Hammerers tables. Members can view and download their old battles and search through the archive and read everybody else's.
You can also create your own league for a club competition or just friendlies with your gaming buddies and participate in our polls which rate and rank each army in various ways.
All the battle data is summarized in tables that plainly show which armies are most successful, how they perform against each enemy and their best units, troop types and turn phases.
Simply create a www.wfbattles.com account
This is a test version* so you can add up to 30 pretend battles
(test data will be deleted before "go live").
* The website will "go live" once any reported problems and comments have been addressed.

On a personal note
I created the site to try to develop my website programming skills and to encourage some more people to join the Battle Reporter forum (hopefully). The site is free to use, there are no catches (or spam - you can "opt in" to receiving email updates if you like).
I used ASP.NET, SQL Server, C# and AJAX to develop the site and it's hosted by SmarterASP.NET (a low cost and efficient web host that I can recommend).
The development was fun, frustrating and rewarding in equal measure. My next project is a miniature upload website to allow users to rate and comment on painters, miniatures and conversions (a bit like Coolminiornot but with more rating options, categories, search options, links to great miniature painters and customize-able slideshows). I'm going to attempt to do it in MVC and JQuery, preferred technologies in my line of work.
