That's what I've been doing, it's just slow going having to basically reverse engineer the setup.

When you make the 8th edition data file, could you put in a Blank Object for every army that:
1. always causes validation errors that cannot be cleared (will say - using a custom unit)
2. can be renamed
3. can have the stats adjusted
4. and can have points amount adjusted?

The purpose for this is many fold. 1, it allows you add things on the fly that have not been upgraded into 8th datafiles. 2. it allows you to add some custom units for fun.

I tried to get LoneWolf to make an entire blank datasystem like this, but they just ignored me. Just trying to make them money, but whatever.

Hi Timothy - we can possibly look at this but it would be a lot further down the line - we have to concentrate on getting the core files set up first

My own Warlord Games gallery and the home of the Warlord Games datafiles:

I don't see that LWD could do anything like this. That would be a feature of a game system and would need to be included by the data file creator. The product from LWD is one big blank file to build what ever you want so in essence, the base product is exactly what you are asking for.

Also how many blanks would be needed in W40K. One that works in an infantry role, one that works as a flyer, one for Titians, another for fortifications. Just doesn't seam like a reasonable request for work vs benefit. Just launch ABCreator, dupe the profile that is closet to what you want and save it with its new name. Probably be faster than starting with a true blank anyway.

40K 8th edition went live on 20 October in ArmyBuilder!

Head over to report bugs, there must be some, to the maintainers' site.
