Default IAL updates with new Codex

Ok so I have tried to e-mail Games-Workshop a few times now and no one can tell me so I figured maybe some one here on the forum would have the inside scoop on what will happen with the Army creation software with all these new codex?

I have the enemy of the emperium one and it hasn't been update since the beginning of last summer :S

I love the software but with the new Tau Codex out I need to know if I should start shopping for a new army builder

Any info would be greatly appreciated

Don't hold your breath. IAL hasn't been updated since the new (shock horror) Marine codex came out. Which is a shame, because I love the interface too, it's just that the support sucks.

C'est la vie.

Well I find that horrible I got the software just before the new Nid Codex since it seam to have all the needed updates but since then nothing.

It it wasn't cheap either. If I would have none that the updates for it would take for ever I would have gotten a 3rd party builder. It's kind of sad that GW doesn't update the software more often otherwise I think everyone would be using it

I would go with Army Builder, to be honest. The updates for it a pretty fast, and only sightly bug-ridden. Army Builder can also be used with many other systems, including the rest of GW's games.

I know about army builder and I almost got that one instead of IAL, but I figured that since it was a GW product that it would be well supported. I guessed wrong :'(.

Does anyone know if it's just a question of GW not expecting to continue on the IAL builder or if there just under-staffed in the department?

If your really stuck I say just whip up a spreadsheet to do list calculations. It might take a lil while to actually get all the calculating done, but you only have to do it once.

thanks Fish head, I already have one, but I prefer the army build it works really smooth.

Other then the updates everything is fine. I mean if they need that much help for the IAL, maybe they should spend little more and get an extra resources that way they could at least have a running change against 3rd party software like Army Builder
