There's an alternate (easier) way to do this. You'll need to use ABCreator to create the army list you want. This will entail defining the new race entry for the army and then adding all the appropriate units that are available for that army. If you copy an existing data file for a similar army, then you can more quickly get stuff working than starting the army from scratch. However, you'll need to change all the unique ids in the copied data file to avoid conflicts.

One thing to be careful of is when a new update is released for the core FoW data files. You need to be sure that the import does not delete your custom data files. This is achieved via the checkbox on the Import form. As a safety precaution, I also suggest you keep a back of the file in a different location, just in case the file is inadvertently clobbered.
