So, in my browsing of the web just now, I came a cross a pretty sweet tool used to
create a template for your Warhammer character. It's called Warforge, and can be found here.
It lets you pull in items straight from WarDB and uploads their stats to your character. You can then customize a suit to your liking, even putting in renown rank tactics and talismans. You can pick any career you'd like, just scroll through them at the beginning.
Something like this I think is really needed for the Warhammer community. The more tools we have at our disposal, the better the game will be for all of us.
