Greetings! Today, I’m happy to share with you all a ship statistics generator that I’ve made for Grand Fleets 3, by Majestic 12 Games. This is a historical ruleset that covers naval combat during the age of battleships. MJ12 is gradually releasing new supplements for the game, which include loads of stats for ships involved in a specific conflict. That still leaves many areas and ship classes uncovered in the meantime, but MJ12 has been nice enough to provide us fans with a detailed set of ship construction rules that enable players to create stat cards for the game using nothing but historical sources. In the effort to make that process simpler, I have created a stat generator using Excel that automates the stat card generation process! Here it is, in all of its Excel glory:
Please download it and let me know what you think! I had to learn a few new tricks when it comes to Excel functions to make this, so its entirely possible I’ve got some errors in there somewhere!
The 2.5 edition of Dystopian Wars is almost here! I’ve got a post up over on the EDR blog discussing some spoilers that have been revealed on the Spartan Games forum. You can find it here:

Hello once again! I’m back with my somewhat delayed recap of days 3 and 4 of Adepticon 2017.
Welcome back! Here is the run-down of how my second day of Adepticon went.
Blood & Plunder
I made today my main shopping day, and I found all kinds of neat stuff. First off is the new hottness, Blood and Plunder. I got a demo in, and it was entertaining. It is clear that the game is, at its heart, an infantry skirmish game. The naval combat is very much simplified, though it still covers enough of the reality of the times to get the point across!
This was a shot from the demo I played. Boarders away!
The ship models for this game look great!
Here is a close-up of the contents of one of the kits.
Also on display were these islands and shoals for the game. These are made of the same rubber material that the FAT mats are, and look great! I want some for Dystopian Wars.
Firestorm Armada Narrative Event
The Flashpoint Amber campaign kicked off in style Friday night! The playing area for the game was quite large.
That’s all for today! Not much to show, as this was sort of my day “off” from organized events. I’ll be back tomorrow with a rundown of Day 1 of the Firestorm Armada championships!
Greetings! As you may have noticed, this is actually going up on Friday; I’m going to be about a day behind on my update posts. Anyway, here are the highlights of my first day at Adepticon!
Hi all! This will be the last Adepticon Preps post, since the show is almost here! I fly into Chicago tomorrow evening, and will be playing the Dystopian Wars tournament on Thursday, the Firestorm Armada event on Saturday, and either the Firestorm Armada or Battlefleet Gothic event on Sunday.
Greetings! Forum member Riftsinger had the opportunity to attend the Hammerhead Games Show in the UK. While there, he took tons of pictures of all the great minis that were there, and has been nice enough to share them with us. Enjoy!
