Army Builder, the popular army-creations program, has been updated with BattleTech: Alpha Strike information. Go and get your update now.
From the announcement:
Alpha Strike is a new, fast-playing form of the BattleTech game of futuristic, armored combat. Developed for the modern tabletop miniatures wargamer, this book allows for an alternative in game play that can turn an entire evenings gaming of giant ’Mechs on alien worlds into an hour or less. Complete with sample armies and a ready-to-play campaign system, all you need besides this book are dice, miniatures, and tabletop terrain to fight for control over the Inner Sphere!
Catalyst Game Labs is extremely excited to provide another great tool in support of Alpha Strike with the release of data files for Lone Wolf Development’s brilliant Army Builder Software; and, thanks to the hard work of community volunteer Jim Williamson (thanks Jim!), they’re available for free!
If you’ve ever wanted to try out the 30-year-success of BattleTech but didn’t want to tackle all of those rules and record sheets, there’s never been a better time to dive in and give the game a try. Use the following code at www.battlecorps.com/catalog during check out to receive $5 off the PDF: ALPHASTRIKEPDF. Or use the following code to receive $15 off the PDF/print combo: ALPHASTRIKECOMBO.
Army Builder now supports Bolt Action and Pike & Shotte.
From the update:
Dom Hine of the Army Builder community volunteered to help us and through his hard work and diligence not only has he made the army lists from the main Bolt Action rulebook & Hail Caesar rulebook armies available to download the first two Bolt Action army books can be found on Army Builder too!
Not satisfied with all of this he has worked his magic on Pike & Shotte – our rulebook covering Tudor warfare, the Thirty Years War, English Civil Wars, Italian Wars, Tudor Wars in the British Isles and War of the Grand Alliance and the data file has now been released to Army Builder, so get yourselves over to the update window and download it right now!
Play Unplugged has a slightly different review today with a look into Army Builder, the program that helps you … build armies…
“Why do they call him ‘the bullet dodger’?”
Because he dodges bullets, Avi.
From the review:
Front and center private! Play Unplugged’s Andrew Lotz puts Lone Wolf Development’s Army Builder software through maneuvers!
Army Builder now has Bolt Action as part of the suite.
From the announcement:
A few weeks ago Dom Hine of the Army Builder community volunteered to get onboard with us and through his hard work and diligence the first data file for Bolt Action has been created making the army lists from the main rulebook available.
This data file has now been released and can be download from within Army Builder, so get yourselves over to the update window and download it right now!
