I have the Generals Handbook. Ask Me Anything.

Recommended Posts

image.jpegimage.jpeg

Ive had this for a little while but am only just allowed to share it. 

I have a full review coming soon but in the mean time feel feel free to ask me anything.  

2 caveats.

1. Release date is 'Soon'

2. I'm not going to look up and list every point value! 

Go!

Is Pitched Battle closer to Clash/SCGT or WHFB 8th edition in terms of how points are structured?

What are the 'warband tables'? Does this indicate that the path to glory is only for the factions mentioned in the tables list?

We've heard rumors about 1. Army traits, 2. Artefacts, and 3. Warlord-trait style things for the general. How many of these are in matched play? Are any of them only victory bonuses?

 

Any word on forge world unit points?

There are 3 main campaign types. 

Path to glory, Map, matrix and ladder. 

 

PTG is a narrative army building campaign with ability upgrades and a race to most glory points

Map show how to play for area with location bonus in games.

Matrix is similar to the old iPad/digital campaign sets where 1 game effects the next. 

Ladder is like a tournament style league system.

It's 169 pages. 

No such thing as relics. 

There are Artifacts and comment traits to go with Allegiance abilities. 

Some cool old hammer throwbacks here! Chaos Runeblade, talisman of protection, clook of mist and shadows and cursed book. And lots more.

How do the points work with variable unit sizes?

Are the points given for min unit sizes?

Edit: What is it with GW releasing books with terrible covers at the moment? The covers used to be really cool.

Points structure is similar to clash/SCGT. You buy a unit of models. You can duplicate them up to a max size per unit.

e.g. Judicators are 160 points for 5  

Your unit size can be 5 to 20. 

So you pay 160 for 1-5

320 for 6-10 and so on  

if you only had 7 Judicators you can still field them but would pay for 6-10

There's a really cool house rule section that basically says you can use this book as a guide and do what you like with is. 

Tournaments make tweek things or your own gaming group may prefer to introduce own house rules. 

They site measuring to bases as one of these.

Do you know if the points are going to be added to the App?

Will the book be available in digital format?
