Why Do I Need Army Builder?
The Army Builder brand roster construction tool streamlines the creation of army lists, providing "point-and-click" simplicity and virtually eliminating mistakes.
Instead of spending an hour to create a roster, it now takes a few minutes. Army Builder's validation engine constantly checks your roster against the rules for the game, flagging any errors with pinpoint accuracy. When your roster is complete, print out an invaluable "quick reference sheet" for use during game play, saving time and reducing costly errors. Between games, you can harness all this power and easily experiment with new army ideas.
Army Builder will save you hours of preparation, speed up game play, reduce mistakes, and even open up the door to new possibilities in your favorite games. Over 40,000 users can't be wrong - Try Army Builder today!
Compatible With Many Games
Army Builder is compatible with dozens of tabletop miniatures games, including Flames of War, Warhammer 40,000, Lord of the Rings, Warhammer Fantasy, War of the Ring, Warmachine, Hordes, Confrontation, and many others.

Army Builder is built around a general purpose engine for roster creation, making it suitable for use with fantasy, science fiction and historical games alike. All of the particulars of a given game system are encapsulated in a set of data files for that game system. The user selects the game system he wants, the corresponding data files are loaded, and the product configures itself for the mechanics of that game system.
Because different miniatures games vary so much, the data files for them are written separately from Army Builder. These data files are generally made available to other users as free downloads that can be retrieved directly by the product. This method allows the data files to be updated regularly as new supplements are released for games, and allows users to download the specific files for the games they want.
A complete toolset for creating data files and/or customizing existing data files is included for free with your Army Builder download. This Construction Kit makes it possible for gamers to write complete data files for a game system or simply modify existing data files to add their own custom troops or make adjustments for house rules.
ABCreator, the primary tool included with the Construction Kit, works similarly to many database programs - the user fills out a form for each unit, item or option that Army Builder must keep track of. A valuable tutorial is included that outlines how to utilize the tool, as well as further documentation for advanced data file authoring.
Army Builder is available in two formats: CD-ROM and electronic download. Both feature 100% identical functionality, and are completely indistinguishable from each other once activated. The only difference is the delivery format (disc versus download) and a single adjustment in the license activation process.
The Army Builder CD-ROM is available exclusively from leading hobby and game retailers. Electronic downloads of Army Builder are available here.
Army Builder's suggested retail price is $39.99 for either format. This includes two separate licenses, allowing installion of Army Builder on two computers and one year of free product updates. Once you own Army Builder, you can use it to create rosters for as many games as you like. (To obtain your second license, simply choose "Obtain Secondary License" from the License menu within Army Builder at any time.)
