Would you pay for it?
As of Jan. 6th, ArmyRoster.com is going to be shutting down the army building section of it's website due to GW grunts. This got me thinking. I know there are a lot of people who already pay for Armybuilder subscriptions, but how would people prefer it done? And would you be willing to pay an extra (say) £3 or $5 per codex/army book for it?
Would you prefer the army builder style where you have a program with add-ons that can be installed from, say, a CD that's been licensed to one PC only, or would you prefer the army roster system, where you buy a licence with your book that contains an individual code that allows you to add your army book to your account only?
As I say, this is just my musings on the matter. I'm not specifically trying to promote either of these systems, and I'm aware that there are pros and cons to either method. I just think that GW are really missing a trick with this, seeing as so many people are using PCs more and more for pretty much everything.
They already had one. It was buggy and the patches for new rules petered out.
GW isn't trustworthy when it comes to maintaining anything software related.
I didn't realise that. When did they do this?
If GW sell it they will make atleast a 75% profit on it
I think if it was a couple of pounds, or you could pay a little extra when you bought a codex to get it, I would quite happily do so. Someone on here produced an Excel spreadsheet for Necrons and I find it really usefull for throwing together ideas when making a force. So to answer you, Yes, I would be happy to pay for it so long as it wasn't too expensive...
I reckon at £3 a pop, yes, they probably would. Would you be willing to pay for it though?If GW sell it they will make atleast a 75% profit on it

official link. Even better, you had to buy the "Armies of the Imperium" and "Enemies of the Imperium" seperately.
This program, more than anything else, lead to the popularity of Lone Wolf Development's ArmyBuilder.
Woah, that slipped under the radar a bit. I'd wonder how it would fare if it were given proper time and publicity. I know the figures for AR are pretty impressive, though that was free.
The GW made program was alright, though very buggy and somewhat expensive ($30 each) if i remember correctly. I personally am still alittle behind the times and using AB 2.2, I updated it for use with my dark elves, and have been diligently working to update it for my vampire counts.
The thing that a lot of people forget when using an army building program is that they are not infallible. Just remember that no matter what the programs say, the book is always right.
