Say goodbye to pencils and paper – the way you make your Warhammer 40,000 army lists is getting a huge upgrade! Battle Forge has been unleashed in Warhammer 40,000: The App, and you can try it right now for free. And if you’re already subscribed, you’re going to get a free month as well. 

Build Armies in an Instant

There’s a lot that goes into planning your perfect Warhammer 40,000 army list: flipping through codexes, cross-referencing points values, checking different weapons and wargear rules to find that perfect loadout… 

It’s all about to get a lot easier!

Battle Forge is literally the easiest way to build a Warhammer 40,000 army ever. You can choose from every faction in the game and generate a legal, Battle-forged army for matched play in minutes. All you have to do is add your units and customise their kit with the intuitive (and handsome) interface.

Most importantly, Battle Forge does all that pesky adding up for you, and you can export your shiny new army list to share on social media, email to your mates, or print out for your games and tournaments. Basically, it does everything you want it to do, without you having to scribble sums in the margins of your precious codexes.

It’s a fast, fun, and official way to build your Warhammer 40,000 armies.

Oh, and it’s absolutely FREE for a month.

We’re hoping as many of you as possible make use of Battle Forge because your feedback will shape the future of its development. Right now, Battle Forge is in its beta version. With over one million pieces of data going into building your army lists and interacting in all sorts of ways, there are bound to be a few wrinkles to iron out. Our crack team of Tech Adepts will be hunting any issues down and getting them fixed – and with your help, we’ll get that done even quicker.

What’s Next?

There are also plans afoot for new features to be added as the Battle Forge beta goes on. First on the list is implementing custom sub-factions using the rules from codexes. This will let you design your own Space Marine Chapters, Necron dynasties, and Aeldari craftworlds, and give you even more scope for crafting your perfect army. A number of Stratagem-based abilities such as Ork Kustom Jobs and Craftworlds Exarch abilities are also on the way, so watch out for those.

Download the app, claim your free month, and get started with Battle Forge now – and remember to give us your feedback. We can’t wait to hear from you.

    The app is looking great and shows a lot of promise. However, I notice that every time I click on the Tactical Drone icon in my list, the app closes out. I think I’m starting to get the impression that GW doesn’t want anyone playing Tau. 😜

      Maybe you should try Space Marines, or Red Space Marines, or Black Space Marines, or Blue Space Marines, or Other Blue Space Marines, or Silver Space Marines, or Other Black Space Marines, or Evil Space Marines, or Evil Space Marines 2, or Evil Space Marines 3: Revenge of the Sequel instead? GW loooooooooooooooooves supporting those armies!

        You forgot green space marines, other green space marines, yellow space marines, other yellow space marines, and white space marines.

    So for those of you who have tried this: Any reason not to just keep using battlescribe? $5 a month seems steep compared to $5 a year…
