Free Peoples in GH2017
« on: August 25, 2017, 03:08:11 PM »
The General's Handbook 2017 is now up for pre-order.

The warhammer-community site has already shown off a number of cool new changes, both in points, new allegiance abilities and artefacts.

See it herehttps://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/08/23/reeces-freeguildgw-homepage-post-3/

What are you most excited for?

I think it's particularly cool that greatswords and demigryph knights are now battleline units if you remain within the free peoples allegiance, letting you take an entirely mounted and armoured freeguild army if you wish. I also like how the ally rules will now let me take a hurricanum in my 2k list without breaking allegiance.

That's a huge bonus above👆
I really like the ascetics of the Demi gryphs. Really fits in nicely with the new world. More so than the old I think. I also really like the card deck that's coming. Pure genius. The Grearswords are really going to find their element now and although not new, the +1 to hit within 14" of a hero is fantastic 3+3+ -1 rend is nice for a 1 wound trooper.

the great companies ability looks great also giving a better utility in supporting then the warscroll single ability does

I had forgotten to mention the great company. I'm still trying to get my head around it but it sounds fantastic. If I'm right, parts of it act like detachments with counter charge/shoot. That sounds good.

The detachment system is back, but am I correct that the "sleeves" aren't limited to being half the size of the parent unit? For instance, 20 Freeguild Guard and two sleeves of 30 or more archers?     

What about the battalion warscrolls? I went with the Empire one, as I don't want to buy Demi-Gryphs...

yeah only requirement now is that you have to have 1 unit of guard of 20 or more bodies and 2 supporting of 10 or more of any kind of free guild unit.

not sure about the battalions
