General’s Handbook 2017 Release Date!

Good news everyone! Games Workshop have revealed that the General’s Handbook 2017 is up for pre-order 19/08/17 and releasing on 26/08/17

Now we will be able to make the pure squig force we have always dreamed of!

Alongside updated rules, new battleplans and revised points costs we also see a few mechanics and rules brought into the mix such as allies and Open War Cards – these will also be available to order alongside the book!

Games workshop are also releasing a very tasty sounding “Warlords Edition” that includes cards for each of the battleplans along with tokens and markers! We will certainly be refreshing the GW site at 10am Saturday to try and get hold of one of these!

With the new allies mechanic GW are also releasing a range of boxes containing approximately 400 points designed to slot into an existing 2k points army! Some brilliant looking stuff here, and I’m very interested into seeing how much these retail for!
