The following three goals are driving the development of version 3 of the Flames of War Army Builder files.
- Costing at platoon level only
- Increased speed of development
A word on costing at the platoon level. In the summer of 2008, I was speaking to a tournament director about Army Builder and he said he found Army Builder rosters hard to validate for correct costs because there where too many numbers. As long as I have been associated with the Army Builder files we have costed each individual team and built up to the cost of the platoon. We know that this is the approach the Battlefront takes in general. It is not, however, the approach that Battlefront takes with the briefing books. Therefore, the Army Builder files will, from now on, only give the total cost of the platoon at the platoon level.
