BattleScribe – Free Army Roster Tool

Posted on May 25th, 2012 under , , , , . Posted by

BattleScribe is a free tool designed so that anyone can make army list files for any miniature wargame and build their army lists quickly. The software is available for Windows, Mac, Android, Linux, or any OS that supports JAVA. The program does not include any army list data files by default but there is a community site with files located here. Data files are available for the following games and the included software allows for you to edit and create any others you might like. 

Warhammer 40k 
Warhammer Fantasy
Flames of War
Warmachine/Hordes
Battlefleet Gothic
War of the Ring
Kings of War
Warpath
BattleTech Quick Strike

To load the data files or answer any of your other questions the developer has a good help page. Help Link. After you’ve added the appropriate data files the interface is very easy to use. I’ve included some examples of the interface and an army list after the break. 

The program offers multiple options for output. Below is one example.
