I was looking at the various army builder type programs and seeing how much they cost which I think is a waste of money when me being a small excel genius can build the whole thing in there.

I am currently working on a builder primarily built off the Blood Angel codex tables first

I will incorporate other armies and will probably put it to a vote who I include next.

I have attached a pic so you can see the kind of layout I have so far, this will be touched up and made to resemble maybe a space marine data panel or something depending on what army you choose - selection screen at front etc



Let me know what you think, if you would like to have a lookie at it then feel free to once I have updated all the troop tables then thats fine.

Basically you select a squad drop down and it autimatically pulls throught the stats and troop options, you then select your make up of the troops which pulls through their own stats. I will be extending the table to include weapons and special doctrines etc etc

Once I have th troops done I will move on to vehicles then artillery etc.

Hq I will add at the top:mrgreen:

Good times Darth. I use AB myself but this is something many folks will probably be into for sure.

That seems like a fairly daunting task, but it should turn out fairly useful once you are done.

Sounds very cool... Normally, I just use MS Excel in combo with the army book/codex, not utilizing the abilities of the program to any real extent. I just want an easily readable printout for my list.

I'd love to see what you come up with.

Oh, and a nomination for Necrons as your second army. :victory: It is a short list, so hopefully it wont be too much effort.
