This is a utility I created to generate an army according to the current rules. It is a .NET application, so you'll need to get .NET Framework 2.0 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en) if you don't already have it installed.

Here's the application: 73

It's pretty straightforward... from the file menu you can create an army or load an army. The file extension is dwa, but they are just xml files so you can manually edit them if needed. The application does not check for some of the rules (such as no Halberd from horseback), but it calculates all the costs/time/etc so you can quickly build an army to a specification for a challenge.

Also, there is a command from the Tools menu you can use for the currently opened army: The "Generate Army List..." command creates a list of the units in a readable form for posting.

Let me know what you think, and which features would be helpful.
