Last time I checked, the army builder trial only allows you to make armies up to 500pts (but last time I checked was about 3 years ago)

V3 demo is limited to 3 units.. v2 is 500 points. I have v2 since it does the job just fine for what i need.

I wouldn't mind having a free army list builder, but what the hell, I'll just use my brain. I tried the trial of the army builder mentioned, but it didn't work.

@Mongoose, I'd suggest you edit the length of your sig. Last time I checked it was 7 lines max, IIRC ;)

Later, Some Guy

Oh, yeah, that's right, you're supposed to pay for it...

...uh... I mean, yes, of course! Silly me! Of course it isn't, and what a rip, eh? Cost an arm and a leg, couldn't afford it, really, but it's *******' necessary for school so whatcha gonna do. Damn you, Gates! Damn you to Heck! :mad:

But seriously, most computers already have Office, anyway, so you might as well use it for something. :)

Uhhhh, buy the codex and get a pencil and paper. Being a snakebite we think that the old ways are best and dont trust all this new fangled technology.

Hey ya'.

@ Some guy: sorry to hear it didn't work, I've never had any problems with mine.

And yes, the new version only allows three units, but you can open however many windows of it that you want. It gets a little clustered to have a window for HQ, another for Elites, another for FA, etc; but it's never really bothered me.

@ Da Reddaneks: I agree. If you're going to build an army you aught to own the 'Dex. I'm building a Tau army, and have the 'Dex. But I'm also thinking about future projects, something to work on after I finish up my Tau, and I've looked at Daemonhunters, SM, CSM, and Necrons as possible future projects. I've got to say that being able to get a feel for their capabilities from AB instead of having to buy their codex's just to think about building them is a real advantage. It's also a nice way to get a look at things your opponents might bring without having to buy their codex.

Army Builder all the way IMO.

Plus please edit your sig, Some Guy is correct. It has to be 7 lines or less

30-04-2006, 22:24
aye investing in army builder is a very good idea IMHO

I'd recommend army builder. I used to be a dyed in the wool pencil and paper type but the flexibility and points tweaking ability of army builder sold it to me.

I use Excel which isnt free but OpenOffice has a spreadsheet program called Calc. I am surprised no one else has mentioned it.

Its not strictly an Armybuilder but its the next best thing.

okey dokey guys, so basically I need to write my lists the old fashion way. I only really wanted to know becuase I have the v2 of armybuilder (nope defnantly not cracked so I get it for free) and some of my friends are starting Tau and nid's. adn it'd be a bit more helpful if I had the updated versions of there dex on there

and I'll edit my sig

Hey ya'.

As one of those guys building Tau, I feel their pain. It'd be nice if the AB guys would get a Tau/Nids update out, but what the heck; their product's free and I know alot of the changes already. Just got to remember them when I look at building a list.
