I finished listening to WWPD Episode 16 on Friday. Steve, Luke and Joe talk about a new web-based army builder called Easy Army. Intrigued, I venture over and I'm stunned to see all the work put into this site. Steve mentions in the podcast that Gregg, who's is doing Easy Army, has gotten the force diagram artwork from Battlefront, thereby alleviating any legal entanglements. I did a quick 654th force to see how it works.
Home page, listing all the available Army Lists. Here I am selecting the Heavy Tank-Hunter Company.
Force Org Chart. Select platoons to add to the Company.
View of the HQ section. Click Company (save) and go back to selecting platoon.
Selecting StuG's. Note the stats at the bottom
Picking up Panzerwerfers.
OOB Screen Part I
OOB Screen Part II
Another nice feature is the ability to e-mail the completed OOB to yourself and be able to print it anywhere.
Gregg has a note about doing the Soviet books soon. If he wants another $1 or more, I'll happily pay it. There will be errors and mistakes. The Excel Spreadsheets have plenty of them and are corrected when noted. I e-mailed Gregg that he forgot Hauptmann Noak for the HQ section of the 654th.
Here's the site.
To get access to the Earth & Steel and Turning Tide books, all you need is pay $1. One dollar for this great website? Wow! Nice deal!
Gregg, thanks for all the hardwork!!! I hope Easy Army continues and I look forward to Eastern Front and the Bagration series of books, including Stalin's Europe.
