    4 Army Builder is the (unoriginally titled) army builder application from Lone Wolf Development. It is a paid-for, closed-source program with what is effectively an optional rolling subscription for upgrades. Despite this, it seems to be quite popular in the gaming community. This is probably in part due to the [http://www.wolflair.com/rightframe.php?context=army_builder&page=supplemental_downloads large collection of data files] that exist for different game systems.

    6 It is important to note that while "army builder" is a great description of an application that helps build armies, Lone Wolf Development have trademarked it. As such, WarFoundry should currently be referred to as a "army building application" and not an "army builder".

     8It is important to note that the name Army Builder has been trademarked by Lone Wolf Development, who also claim coverage of any phrase using a combination of derivatives of those two words or their base words in relation to army list creation software. As such, WarFoundry and other applications must be called "army creators" or similar and are not allowed to use any descriptive phrase that may be deemed to be derived from the Army Builder or its base verbs and nouns.

    23 Army Builder version 2 bundles a collection of files in to a single .ab file using a separate command-line executable. These files all have the same file extension, which relates to the game system specification the files were created for. The file is, according to the documentation, compatible with PKZIP but the .zip extension isn't used so that users don't try to extract the files. Tests have so far been unsuccessful in extracting the files.
