Well I actually just found out about Army Builder..
So My question is.. Are there and Free or cheaper substitutes for Army Builder?
Or am I out $40
I started a thread about this a week or two back. Do a bit of poking around and you'll find it- I got several good answers.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
I don't know how the program works, but you could probably program one on a SS. I have the problem that I have a Mac so it isn't compatible.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces
A pen and paper works wonders =^.^=
But nah, there are some ok Excel templetes out there. I have one I made myself, and that works just fine, and are easy enough to make.
You have to put the points vaules in yourself, but thats not exactly hard, and its more realiable from what I hear. Army Builder sometimes seems to have bugs or wrong points values.
With Excel, or pen and Paper, if you get something wrong, tis easy to correct.

IMO Army Builder has to many mistakes to warrant the $40, the times we have been battling and using the stats AB has only to find it wrong after looking in the Army book / Codex for mine does not make it worth while.
I use Excel as by setting up a simple adding formula you can get it to calculate the correct totals for you. I put lots of sub totals as well (each units wear gear) so all I have to do is add or delete a column/item and the total changes automatically for me. So for example:
Unit Name 1000pts
So by setting a formula up in the unit items as well it makes it easy to change wear gear without having to work out total cost, Excel does it for me.
