Army Builder gives Bolt Action Players covering fire

For a number of years now tabletop miniatures gamers have been using Army Builder brand roster construction tool as often as their rules, glue and paint. The core programme has been developed by Lone Wolf Development with the community putting together data files relating to their own favoured tabletop system, be it Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Flames of War, Dystopian Wars or any number of systems.

And now Warlord Games Bolt Action is getting the essential Army Builder treatment.  Dom Hine of the Army Builder community volunteered to work with Warlord to get the data file for Bolt Action created allowing gamers access to the army lists in order to quickly and easily put an army together.  Also saves on scrunched up paper being thrown in the bin several times.

The Bolt Action data file can now be download from within Army Builder (if you have bought it - it comes recommended as a excellent army list building tool.).

About Army Builder:
For miniatures gamers, the Army Builder brand roster construction tool is as vital as glue and paint. But why have over 40,000 miniatures gamers chosen Army Builder? Army Builder streamlines the creation of army lists, providing “point-and-click” simplicity and virtually eliminating mistakes. Instead of spending an hour to create a roster, it now takes a few minutes. Army Builder’s validation engine constantly checks your roster against the rules for the game, flagging any errors with pinpoint accuracy. Since Army Builder takes care of the mathematics for you – you can quickly experiment with different ideas and refine your army list. Add a new item, subtract some models from a unit, change the rules for the roster – Army Builder instantly recalculates points totals and revalidates the roster, allowing you to make changes in seconds. When your roster is complete, Army Builder can print out an invaluable “quick reference sheet” for use during game play, saving time and reducing costly errors. Between games, you can harness all this power and easily experiment with new army ideas. Army Builder will save you hours of preparation, speed up game play, reduce mistakes, and even open up the door to new possibilities in your favorite games. Even one of these benefits would be worth the investment, but Army Builder offers all of them. It’s no wonder Army Builder has revolutionized the world of tabletop miniatures gaming. Build rosters in minutes - Army Builder handles the book-keeping for you. No calculators – No mistakes! - Make unlimited changes without reaching for your spreadsheet or calculator. Instantly verify rosters are legal - Army Builder re-validates your entire roster with every change you make, ensuring compliance with the rules. One tool supports ALL miniatures game systems
Try Army Builder for free, and see for yourself why it’s the industry standard used by miniatures players worldwide!

Now for those that don't want to fork out $39.99 (which Wee Ivor thinks is reasonable enough - as you still have a fully operational programme once the year's licence is finished, you just don't get the automatic updates.) you would not be far from a very good Bolt Action specific roster creator over on BoltAction.Net.
