Army Page

All the details about the chosen army are shown on the Army Page. At the top, you can see its author, its name, and any description or comment the author assigned to it when he/she created it. You also have links to the different sections and activities of the army page: distribution of miniatures [Statistics], discussion [Discuss], and rating [Rate]. If you are the author of the army that you are viewing, then you will also have a link that will let you modify it [Edit].

Miniatures List

Next, you have the list of miniatures included in the army. For each miniature, the number of copies of it in the army is shown, together with some basic data like the set it comes from, its number in that set, the type of miniature and its rarity. The name of the miniature is also a link which opens a window with all the details about that miniature.

The listing of miniatures is initially grouped in sections, if the corresponding game has them, but you can choose to group the miniatures by other parameters, like their rarity, type, etc., by selecting them from the drop-down list located at the top, next to "Group miniatures by". This way you can study in detail what types of miniatures compose the army; for example, which ones are rare and which ones uncommon. For each group you get the total of miniatures for that group in the army.

You can also see the list in an extended format which shows all the details about each miniature, including its image and game text, if they are available. It is like having the page of details for all the miniatures shown at the same time. To access this information you only need to click on the link at the upper right corner of the Army Page, where it reads "extended format". You can see the standard format again from the corresponding link in the new page.

Statistics

Under the list of miniatures there is the Statistics section, which analyzes the army, giving all the information about the distribution of its miniatures by rarities, types, and other parameters of the game. This way you can see at once if most of the miniatures in that army are rare, for example, or if there are many of a given type (or clan, or culture, or color). For each parameter, you get a bar diagram showing graphically the percentages, and you also see the number of miniatures and the corresponding percentage as numeric values.

Rating

In this section you have the chance to vote for the army and indicate how good you think it is. Having into account whether you think it follows a correct strategy that will let it win the game, whether it has the appropriate miniatures in the best proportions, and whether you think it would be difficult to beat or not, you should give it a score from 1 to 5, where 1 is the worst rating, for bad, not well-thought armies, and 5 is the best rating, for armies that are really well designed.

If you have already voted for this army at some point (or if it is your army and therefore can not vote for it), you will be able to see in this section the current score obtained by this army, with a sliding bar that shows graphically that score in relation to the minimum and maximum values.

Discussion

The last section in the Army Page is the discussion about it, in which all users of the web may publish their comments about the army, give their opinion, and discuss its pros and cons.

This section works much like the forums, showing the messages together with the name of the user who wrote them and the date in which they did, and allowing you to add your comments (through the "Add your comments" links) and to include a reference to another existing one (through the "quote" button).

You can also subscribe to the discussion, so that you get a notice by e-mail as soon as someone adds a new comment. This is the best way to stay up to date with the conversation, and to learn about strategy and army building.
