Ever get sick of having to write-down your Heroes Might/Will/Fate statlines before every game of Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game? Annoyed with keeping tally with a pen and paper, or laying out your dice on hand-written grids and/or widgets?
Do you ever wish there was something that you could set up on your phone or tablet instead?
Me too. Lucky for us, it’s simple enough to program that I just went and did it.

The Middle-earth SBG Hero Stats Tracker is dead simple to use. To begin, simply fill in the form at the bottom of the page to add your Hero’s starting statline and (optional) faction. Once added, you can touch/click on the stat to reduce the value as you expend Might, lose Wounds, etc. The Hero’s statline will grey out when their Wounds are reduced to 0 to make it easier to keep track of who is still in the fight.
You can restore a depleted Stat or Wound by clicking the + icon beneath the stat should you have your Wounds healed or any other stat restored in game through spell or scenario.
The (optional) Break Point Tracker can keep note of your total model count and any Casualties taken for calculating whether your army is broken or below 25% strength. You can even keep score of how many kills your individual Hero models make and – if given a faction – the tracker will automatically update the opposing factions Casualties.
The Tracker will also persist your Heroes stats between sessions and/or should you close or refresh the window accidentally. There’s even an undo button to correct any misclicks or finger slips, and a Reset button to restore your starting statlines and reset the casualty counter between games – especially handy for tournament play.
This tool wouldn’t be half as useful as it is now without feedback from the community, so please feel free to drop a comment on this post or email me at complaints(at)michaelhanns.com with any comments/criticisms/feature requests. Hopefully you find this tool as useful for your games of Middle-earth SBG as I do!
As always, thanks for reading, and happy wargaming!
