I have been spending allot of time using BattleScribe to build lists on my phone but I cannot get the one on my PC to work.

So I was pondering, what bits of tech do my fellow Heretics use and why?

I use Quartermaster. Yes, it actually costs to buy, and you need to download templates for your armies in a third party, but--damn, if that isn't a clean and efficient interface that has saved me so many hours of list-writing.

I can't seem to find this one. The only Quartermaster I find is German development group. I am sure it is me just not typing in something right.

Morfang, what do you have? I think it's only for Apple devices.

But yes, by far and away Quartermaster is the best mobile app for 40k

It is iOS only, so if you're on a Android you're out of luck.
That is a shame... does anyone know of an good verson that does something simmilar for the Android, I have been generally 'Underwhelmed by Battlescribe' (It doesn't like 20,000 pt lists)

I guess I've only taken it to 10,000 points. Still, Battlescribe is pretty awesome and updated frequently. I already have the new Blood Angel rules in my data repository and the book came out today.

That being said, I found it very clunky on desktop and I solely use it on my phone. When it comes time to play a game I always transfer the list to paper with any necessary notes added in with unit entries for ease of reference and sharing with my opponent if they care.

I was mostly jokeing about the 20,000 points.

But it does frequently crash on me when I start using more that one rules source.. which is something I do quite a bit as a big fan of Forgeworld stuff and fortifications.

But yes it is updated allot, which is very nice.

I've found that for most of the armies I play the Forgeworld options for them (in 40k anyway) are included in the roster. For example, I can include a Cerastus Knight in my BA army or Mortis Dreadnoughts in my DA one without adding separate rosters/rule sets to the mix.

That being said though, again I haven't pushed the limits to it. The program does crash every now and then, big thing right now for me is ever time I push 'options' the bitch dies. Ah well. I'm not looking to 'share' a list anyway.

Ultimately anything is better than doing it all on paper.

My Battlescribe broke earlier this week, it now throws a fit when you try and add Codex: Inquisition.

Best program I ever had was Microsoft Excel. Loved that thing for making lists.

Battlescribe can now sync with your Dropbox on various devices so your lineups are synced. Helps if you plan on printing them off a computer.

Example: make list on your phone, print it off a computer later.
