What is CaTools?

CaTools is an application that allows you to create and modify equipment, units, squads, army lists and army rosters using a graphical interface. This way you can do away with paper, pencil and calculator and just go straight to designing armies!


System requirements:

  • Windows 9x/ME/2000/XP
  • Internet explorer must be installed on you machine to view the reports

Notes about the version 2.2

This version includes the following improvements:

  • You can now specify the number of units of the same type present in a squad (e.g 10 Infantry men). Note that, if you use this feature, older versions of the program will read but not modify or save the army lists correctly.
  • "Merge" function to import data from one army/equipment list into another.
  • New buttons to quickly move to the previous / next unit, weapon, accessory in the list.
  • Corrected cost for ferocious troops (as per errata [E3]).

Notes about the version 2.0

This version of the tools covers the second edition rules. It can import and convert army lists, equipment lists and army roster files from the previous version of the application.
