    I use Battlescribe to build my army lists. It's a great tool that can be used across platforms easily. The current Vampire Counts catalog found online has errors in it. I corrected these errors and also wrote my own complete Wood Elves file from scratch. Some of our community members are making good use of my catalogs, and I figured why not share them with the other Battlescribe users here as well.

    Here is my public Battlescribe catalog link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17814872/Battlescribe/index.bsi

    You can get the app here: http://www.battlescribe.net/

    If you find anything that needs editing or want to suggest a feature change, just reply in this thread. Remember these catalogs are for personal use to aid in army list building. They don't replace the Warhammer Armies books.

    UPDATE 3/31/2015 - All army lists are done! Only left to do is write up Storm of Chaos monsters depending on time and demand. Enjoy the list. Hopefully some of you give the Grand Legion of the Everchosen a run so my effort wasn't in vain ;)

    UPDATE 3/20/2015
    - When adding a force, I've changed standard's percentages to 50% Lords and heroes, since that is official errata and has been for some time. Armies of the End Times now has no limits on any of the minimums or maximums, as the new Archaon book lays out.

    Current Project:
    Storm of Magic Scrolls of Binding

    Upcoming Projects:
    ...Awaiting 9th Edition

    Completed Army Catalogs:
    Vampire Counts
    Tomb Kings
    Lizardmen
    Warriors of Chaos
    Beastmen
    Daemons of Chaos
    Undead Legions
    Legions of Chaos
    Wood Elves
    Dark Elves
    High Elves
    Host of the Aestyrion
    Host of the Phoenix King
    Host of the Eternity King
    The Legion of Azgorh - Chaos Dwarfs
    Skaven
    Ogre Kingdoms
    Bretonnia
    Dwarfs
    Orcs & Goblins
    Empire
    The Grand Legion of the Everchosen

    Does the link contain Undead Legions? or will you be posting it separately?

    When I get it done, I'll update my catalogs and you should just have to do an update and it will download automatically. I'll test it to make sure when it's ready.

    @Disciple of Nagash thanks DoN!

    You'll have to do it "manually": copy the url, open Battlescribe's data management page (a column of 3 horizontal bars in top, right corner) and paste it onto the url line, click the + symbol and then just update the data.

    You might be using the bad file I repaired off of. Use the file that if called Vampire Counts 8th. On app, goto manage data, then delete data files. Then reload the data from URL. I cleaned out those bad files.

    i did all that, i cleaned everything before downloading yoursi even removed all previous sources and only have your dropboxfile.
    Sword of might used to cost 15 points as well, that is now corrected to 20. Sword of striking might be priced accordingly, hence the ? im not sure about its cost, i have no acces to my book.

    I used to be able to take Warbanner, now i cant.


    It says Vampire Counts 8th v25, when i choose an army

    It's because he has the point value of War Banner set at 35 points instead of 25 points.

    Just an FYI, there's a great data community out there. I can't post a link, but search BattleScribe data and it's the top result.

    I think their whfb data is pretty complete, but might be a good way to distribute your work, get bug reports and suchlike :)

    Do you mean randomhit? coz theyre datafiles for VC are not that good.
    I found one from NewZealand which was better but for some reason, both had Sword of Might and Sword of Battle listed for 15 instead of 20.

    Warbanner is a 35 pt banner. Skeletons aren't supposed to be able to take it.
    Swords are the proper points, I double checked them. So everything is fine.

    The reason I have my data files is because I couldn't get the random hit community to update the vampire file. It had no BSB, no matter of the dead, points were wrong on a bunch of items. Then when wood elves came out, they did nothing to update that. Had to make my own.

    Well, I'll be... I think even Army Builder has War Banner at 25. I guess we got used Battlescribe allowing us to use it for so long that we just thought that it was 25 points...

    Warbanner is 35pts?


    It wouldnt really matter since i always take Swiftness+Warbannerbsb



    Other than that, Thank you @najo for doing this, im pretty sure that anything you make for Battlescribe will be better than what Randomhit puts out there.

    I asked Randomhit to add Master of The Dead option for Necromancers and they flat out told me NO; same for BSB options. I even suggested they just copy some of the info from Heinrich Kemmler to make it easier...
    When I told them that there was a bug with adding magic items to WK and Vampire heroes that caused the app to crash, they told me I had to wait for the next update. Next update, not fixed. Reported again, no response.

    Then a great hero emerged... someone who had authored a version that was without error and had all of the things necessary to create a proper list.

    Yeah, due to technical issues (and people's time...), Randomhit was pretty slow to update. Especially their whfb stuff...

    Problem was that it was A Guy who kindly hosted a forum and web space for data. But of course you don't give out the passwords to your website to random internet dudes! They did the best they could, but it was a difficult situation for them.

    I'm talking about the appspot website, if you've seen it? We built a system upon GitHub with bug reporting, communal data editing, and an easy way to put out updates. I reckon they put out new files for new books within a couple of days for example.

    That said, use the method you like best to distribute your data - not saying you _should_ or _must_ move to them or anything! Just saw that you're an active data author (thanks!) and thought I'd bring it to your attention.

    [Full disclosure, since I can't edit my signature: I'm the BattleScribe developer and tend to jump into interesting forum conversations about it in the interests of building the community and helping solve problems. And the outside possibity that I'll get a free beer out of it should we meet in a pub one day ;)]
