So, what does everyone use? There was one called Army Builder. Is it any good?

Can you buy the earlier versions, or does it have to be version 3 to get the current updates?

I am on a Mac most of the time - anything Mac-worthy? Are there any nice simple Excel spreadsheets available?

I use Army Builder, and it's really cool. Unfortunately, they don't support updates for old versions, so you really need the latest version to get the current update (which reminds me, I need to get the 5th edition rules download for my copy of AB). There are some things that it isn't perfect on, but for the most part, it's a very good product. Not sure if it works on Macs, though, as I avoid contact with them as much as possible (I'm a database programmer and Macs and databases are like Oil and Water... they don't mix very well).

I'd rather get something I could do at home (on a mac) - otherwise I'll be fooling with Ork lists at work! Too much to do there.

That's why I'd rather just get a simple spreadsheet.

You could try this one out.

See how it works for you.

It's a dynamic pdf.

Allow auto complete and it will work out points for you. Not as nice as AB, but it's free and it works on the machine that jesus wanted humans to use... the mac.

I used my Google-Fu and found a nice Excel spreadsheet that is Ork specific. Found my son an IG one too.

If anyone wants a copy let me know.
