UPDATE: Dust Warfare Force Builder is now part of Dust-War.com, the new URL is http://builder.dust-war.com/ . The old URL will continue to work if you have saved/shared lists.

While the rules for making a Dust army are easy, the way Platoons are built - with a subset of choices for each section - makes it awkward to mess around with tweaking lists - especially when planning what models to buy!

Dust Warfare Force Builder is a JavaScript-driven webpage which makes it easier to create lists, and output them in useful format.

Try it now at http://builder.dust-war.com/

It should work on all platforms in standard browsers.

I plan to add a couple additional features - mainly a 'link' feature that encodes your entire army choice into the URL and can be shared/bookmarked/etc. It's as good (or better) than a 'save/load' feature!

Feedback is welcome, I will also be monitoring this FFG forum thread.

Please note, however, I am a software engineer - my talents lie in programming, logic, and software architecture. I am not a graphical designer or artist, nor do I do much web development. If someone would like to assist in making the site look nicer, I would very much appreciate the help.

I've fixed some bugs with IE, and it now appears to work correctly under IE8, at least.

Revision 4 went up last night - better error feedback, option to disable hero/platoon limits (for sandbox building), and force and platoon level notes.

Revision 5 is up.

* "Link to this Force" link added. Use this to easily share or save your armies. I'll try my best to make sure links continue to work with future revisions.
* Code cleanup and performance improvement.

For example, here is my 300 pt Allies force: http://dust.mainecoon.net/#EFcJOPSVgzmbsorty046+/A

Version 7 is up:

- SSU and other new units from Operation Zverograd has been added.

- A Clear button has been added to quickly reset the army list (for mobile devices).

- Links to donate to Snow Leopard Trust (or to show appreciation directly to me) have been added.

As Dust-War.com is shutting down, the old URL (which was never shut down) is now the official address once again:

http://dust.mainecoon.net/
