–  Why Buy Army Builder?  –

Every gamer has his own style, and army construction is often a very individual process. What a gamer looks for in the Army Builder brand roster construction tool largely depends on the way he plays the game. Novices will value distinctly different features from the veteran player. No matter what your level of expertise, Army Builder will give you more time to paint and play!

If You're a New Player...

Army Builder is a great tool if you're just starting to play miniatures games, automating a large portion of the bookkeeping that can be confusing when building your first few armies:

  1. All available troops are displayed with appropriate equipment and options, so you don't have to wade through charts and lists.
  2. Point costs and army construction rules are automatically tracked for troops, equipment, special gear, etc. You can leave the math to Army Builder and focus on the game.
  3. Automatic rules validation warns you when a rule has been broken or an error has been made. Correction is usually as simple as a few clicks of the mouse.
  4. Printed rosters provide an excellent game-time reference, reducing the need to look up basic information in rule books during the game.
  5. Having basic information for all armies at your fingertips means players can review the other armies that they will face before the games, reducing surprises.

If You're a Veteran Player...

Veterans know their way around the games better than anyone, but you can still use the time-saving tools in Army Builder to help you get the most out of your armies:

  1. Experiment with new armies and strategies in a fraction of the time it would take with pen and paper.
  2. Prepare for league or tournament play by using Army Builder's extensive tools to maximize offensive and defensive strengths of your forces.
  3. Army Builder's complete rules validation ensures that everyone at the table is playing with a legal army. Eliminate suspicion that an army list is invalid.
  4. Army Builder's printed rosters put the details at your fingertips, for easy reference at any point during play. Never again forget to apply a crucial modifier in the heat of battle.
  5. For pick-up games, you can create, save, and print rosters for any occasion - including games with special scenario rules - all in a matter of minutes.

If You're a Casual Player...

Casual players typically play like veterans but don't have every details memorized. As such, Army Builder offers significant benefits:

  1. All the basic details are at your fingertips, including many that would typically have you scrambling for the rulebooks.
  2. Army Builder's roster printouts ensure you have the information you need during play, greatly reducing that chance the something is forgotten.
  3. For casual players, every minute at the game table is precious, and Army Builder's time-saving features ensure that you spend more time playing and less time preparing.
  4. Pick-up games and house rules are common among casual players. Army Builder makes it easy to build impromptu rosters for games with special rules.
