General's Handbook Leaks

"All units have an assigned role.
Leader, Battleline, Behemoth, Artillery, no role.
Depending on points you play you are required/limited on number of units of each type you can take. Lets say we play 1000pts battle.
In that case you are required to take
2+ Battleline units
1-4 Leaders
0-2 Behemoths
0-2 Artillery
Any number of no role units

Some units have both types so they take up both slots at once.
Some units can become battleline if you take specific leader



Somehow I missed the part about summoning while taking photos but as far as I remember it works along the lines:
We play 1000 pts battle
You can decide to spent any of those points on summoning. So lets say you take 700 points on field and 300 points are "held in reserve: as summoning.
You summon any unit within said 300 points limit later in game. Points are used for summon so no recycling.



Armies build entirely of one Alliance are given extra rule. Generals can take 1 extra ability out of 6 predefined ones. Also there are 6 artefacts that can be taken by heroes at no additional cost.



Each alliance has its own set of
1 Battle Trait
6 Command Traits for your general
6 Artefacts that "any (non-unique) hero can be given one..."

Battle traits are
Death: For each wount or mortal wound suffered by DEATH unit within your army that is within 10" of your General or another Hero from your army, roll a die. On a 6 or more the wound is negated.
Destruction: Roll a dice in your hero phase for each unit from your army that is within 6" of General or another Hero from your army. The unit can move a number of inches equal to the dice roll, as if it were movement phase, but cannot run. This does not affect their ability to move again later in the turn.

Chaos: Roll a dice when you pick a Chaos unit to attack in combat that is within 8" of general or other your hero. On a roll of 6 you can add 1 to all hit rolls for the unit in that phase.
Order: You can re-roll battleshock tests (in battleshock phase) for friendly Order units that are within 12" of general or other hero in your army.



(order artifacts. chose one, no roll)

1. Attack in combat before anyone else (one use potion)
2. Improve Rend by 1, not for mounts
3. +1 Damage for one weapon
4. -1 to To Hit for enemies you wounded (for rest of battle)
5. Once per battle -1 to Hit for all enemies agains model with this artefact
6. Heal 1 wound in each of your hero phases. "

Wow nagash is 3 times more expensive than a blood thirster/ Kairos. Love that points are back in and the lazy "everything is assigned a role" than one slot is "no role"
Im really curious to check out that elf book.

Yeah. . .they couldn't have gone with "unique," or something like that? Then again, this is the same company that renamed "elves" "aelfs" so they could trademark. I don't see them burning the midnight oil on this stuff. . .

I like that they're finally adding points back in. . .but that fluff thing still gets me. I don't think I could use my dwarfs for AoS without feeling deflated. I'd say I would just start a new army, but the costs are a bit too staggering.

I've read a few of the books...they are actually really good and high fantasy. While I lament the loss of The Old World, they've created one where anything can happen.

Interesting. But the truth will be in the finished product. I hope they get a good balance, with enough fun. (I'm afraid I think it's unlikely to be good enough, since now days you have to have massive play tests and amazing balance for a game to be acceptable).

I think the game is fun enough at its core, I really enjoy it. The lack of structure (or at least one we were familiar with/wasn't loosey goosey) and the all out uking of the fluff was a lot to swallow. I'm ready to give it another swing and would like to participate in the campaign. If it sucks, it sucks. I'll convert to Kings of War or 9th Age.
