Batrepper is an easy way to format battle reports for your blog or website that is not genre specific. This is very much in its infancy, but is very functional right now.

FIRST UP:
Here's some examples of battle reports done with batrepper
battle Report 1
battle report 2

HOW TO USE:
Once you've uploaded your images somewhere, simply fill out the information in the software and the end result will be a formatted html block which you can copy & paste into your account. Right now there is a simple default color scheme and layout, but I plan to introduce "theming" in the future.

DOWNLOAD V0.3 Beta: link

To use, download the zip file and extract it somewhere. Run the .jar (java executible) in the same directory as the "lib" file.

NEW IN THIS VERSION
*When you have combat casualties on a turn, the *first* time you change tabs to go to the next turn, the casualties will carry over.
*Color choices for the two armies given.
*General code clean up and bug fixes.

KNOWN BUGS AND WORKAROUNDS

Nice looking AAR, though the nice figures and terrain helps that a bit!

Looks pretty good. Does it have a feature to add visual elements to pictures such as arrows indicating unit movement and explosion icons for units destroyed?

nah, nothing like that yet. This is basically just a formatting tool. The images need to be hosted externally. That is on the long to do list, but it'll be a while before I get to anything like that!
