I am finally getting around to using my Rally Round the King rules, and am excited to get started. I was wondering if there's a spreadsheet around to make up on one page, say, 2 opposed armies and perhaps 1-2 allied factions within the army?
I am not a technical wiz, so if HAL can't do it for me, I'm probably asking for help!
Also, am certain that someone has done this already.
Any recommendations on getting started appreciated.
Army construction has always been so easy that I've always just used pencil and paper, so I can't help you with the spreadsheet.
If you haven't played a game of RRtK, play a game using the Basic Army - the number of units in the first column of each army list. This will give you a good starting point in learning the rules and tactics. The Basic Army is a standard 200 point army.
Once you have a feel for the rules, there are two ways to expand your Basic Army:
One is to start with your 200 point Basic Army and make recruiting rolls until you reach the target point number for your army - usually a 400 point army will give a great game, but the rules won't break down if you go larger, just make sure you have a large enough table for really large armies.
The second method is to start with your 200 point Basic Army and just buy additional units until you reach 400 points or the point total for your game.
I like the first method the best because it gives me a more random challenging force to command. Anyway, before getting bogged down in spreadsheets and min/max analysis, just start playing the game.
Amado mio, love me forever and let forever begin tonight.
