  • In need of work

    By GoSpeedFraud
    If all you need is a reference for stat blocks this works fine. If you want the rules behind the specific armies you have to buy the physical codex and link it. The army builder is buggy, it crashes constantly, the ability to edit specific gear choices on any unit with multiple choices doesn’t work at all, it defaults to all members of the unit having the same gear (crisis battle suit squads for example, but almost all squads like this I tested did the exact same thing). Furthermore it doesn’t have the ability to do simple math correctly. The army builder doesn’t add points up correctly. The main thing the advertise about this app just doesn’t work… Just completely useless all around. Apparently basic arithmetic was lost on the developers.
  • Rough but functional

    By Doom Jestrr
    Have used it for about a year or so, with varying issues during that time, however after playing with it I’ve grown to use it in lieu of other options, hence the 4 stars. They are actively updating it and it does get updates for points and rules. Qualms would be around semi-frequent crashing with certain actions during list building (say you add an Inquisitor to a chapter or are trying to choose wargear on a vet), nothing terrible, restart and remove. Some things don’t seem to line up with the codices, for better and worse, whether wargear that can be taken by model or unit, the count doesn’t match for unit and the next can take more then allotted. The majority of point issues seem to have been cleared up, an example being a power sword on your Intercessor srg would jump the 105 cost up to 120, that is NO longer an issue. It does provide a fair amount of rules (some tied to your purchase of whatever codex) and has been set up for GT or EW play. Would like to see further polish as time goes by and potentially more functionality, barring the intent to create a separate app for Kill Team or even Apocalypse, maybe even HH army building, but that’s also just as fine an expected to be its own format and app. If in doubt, try it for the month, play with it and keep fiddling, if you take to it then keep it, if you don’t move along and check it out another year.
  • Deceptive business practices

    By kar8abun
    Be warned, aside from the problems with the app (which I addressed in a Spring 2022 review), the business model is dis-honest. I purchased a year subscriptions (about $60 US) justifying the free miniature as gift for my son. The miniature is finally released, but will not be available to order until the year is complete - even though I paid for the ENTIRE year in advance. So much for a Christmas present ordered 9 months early. Then, considering how little usefulness the app has provided for gameplay, I chose to turn off my auto-renewal. You guessed it, not possible. Auto-renewal is default- only option is to cancel subscription. The website clearly stated that if I do this, then the miniature (which made the annual fee worthwhile), would be forfeit. So, in truth, the exclusive miniature is only for those that pay for an entire year AND may for the next year (at least the first month) as well. This is not what was advertised. In summary, I did not find the app helpful for streamlining the complexities of the game. It markets for more sales. I need help playing this game for it to actually be fun; having a virtual salesperson involved makes me feel like on on a car sales lot than at a gaming table— not fun and not honest with there subscriptions.
  • Absolutely Worthless

    By David B. Pym
    No reason to get this.
  • Getting better

    I like the app, I actually asked for an app where you got a code in the codex as I like owning the physical copy of the Codex’s. So that is a great feature. Yes there has been bugs but when I find them I report them until there fixed. Subscription is worth it. Got a cool model and good content overall.
  • Difficult to use

    By sump pump 42
    This app is very difficult to log in and out of. I bought the subscription and was able to use the app just fine. Then I logged out of my account. Ever since then, no matter how often I log into my Warhammer + account, the app does not pick that up and will not open. I have paid the subscriptions outrageous price and still am using BattleScribe. This app is a waste.
  • Pretty Useless

    By WiredGuy85
    Especially until they let you build your list by power level instead of just points. Update: Still crap and now even buggier. Keep calm and move along.
  • Garbage app

    By Jsaux
    Buggy, slow, and a mess. Code didn’t work properly from the codex and it doesn’t even have all the rules. Avoid like the plague.
  • Barely useful as a reference tool

    By Mike Scarbro
    I’m incredibly disappointed in this app. I’ve been using it since I started playing in March of this year. There are bugs I identified and reported back then that are still present today in August. Entire sections of rules are completely missing text (Thousand Sons Cults of the Legion have no rules text, only flavor text), list building rules are not enforced properly (Legion Command upgrades show up for EVERY unit in a Thousand Sons army when it should only be scoped to a few), and the only way to actually see the entire core rules is to subscribe, even if you own a physical copy since there’s no code. It fails as a reference source since the data is incomplete and locked behind paywalls, even for subscribers. It also fails as a list building tool since it doesn’t properly enforce the rules. I’m not sure why I would want to spend money on this app when the free alternatives are much better. Hopefully the devs for this app can get some actual resources from GW to try and make it a complete product. Until then I’ll look elsewhere.
