    Sorry, couldn't resist. I don't know of any free list builders, nor will I ever pay for one unless I have to.

    Poke around their website for a link to their Yahoo group with army files.

    Proper use of apostrophes:
    -Denoting possessives.
    +"Bill's dress was pretty."
    Other purposes:
    -Contractions.
    +"We're going to the game(we are going to the game)."
    -Its is an exception. Its is already possessive, no apostrophe need. It's is only used as a contraction of it is.Thank you.

    I build Excel files. I do so in such a way that I can take half an hour or so to pound in values for upgrades that I'd ever consider taking for bunches of units, and just set up a column for quantity and true/false entries as to whether the current list is taking them. When I'm done, it sums the cost of each unit for me in real time, I've got a box I can use to exclude a given unit, etc., so I can do all kinds of wacky tinkering easily.

    I love it. Took me about an hour to set up the initial formulas, and then it's just a bunch of copy/paste work, entering new wargear names and costs, and a little bit of box-dragging to modify sums for a new codex.

    If I get ambitious, I may go through the work of coding some of the lines as drop-downs for ease of use by people other than myself, and share with friends.

    I use one called Roll Call. You can update the army files yourself (if you're a bit tech-savvy) to work with each subsequent codex release. Very simple, and can save as HTML as a table. Do a search for it, and give it a whirl.

    This one isn't bad, but it takes some getting used to. Also exports to an html file. You can and should edit the different army files yourself, just to make sure they're up to date with the FAQs. The Ork file, for example, give some units a Waaagh! when the FAQ says to remove it, and you'll have to add the option for extra Dreadnought Close Combat Weapons to the Deff Dread entry.

    Working on making an army file for Morr's Vassal Codex in Forge now. After 20 minutes of tinkering around to get a feel for the settings, it's not too tough to do.

    armybuilder is free, you don't have to pay for it, you get 10 free downloads also.

    Are you talking about Army Builder by WolfLair? Because the pricing page says it's $39.95 to license the software. Don't use it myself, but I've read that you can do up to a 500-point army without the license.
    This one download serves as the full product AND the demonstration version of Army Builder. Until a valid license is installed, Army Builder will operate in "Demonstration Mode". Demo mode limits you to a small roster, but it allows you to experience the power and flexibility of the product. This limitation is removed once licensed.

    You can make 500 point list of just 3 units/characters/units.

    The full licence gives you 2 keys so its great of you and a friend share the cost

    You, sir, ROCK. I have been looking for that program for more than seven YEARS now, since I had it on my brother's old comp and since he had installed it, I didn't pay attention to what it was called.

    It's an awesome little program, that you can update as you wish - So it'll even support custom army lists and the like. And it's small.

    Suddenly, Andon!

    When i try to print off the forge it goes dodgy and wastes lots of paper

    I've imported the html into Excel and fixed it that way. At that point, though, you might as well just build your whole list in Excel. Might also try a web page designer and html editor to get better results.
