If you’re a truly dedicated gamer, the Warlord Edition of the General’s Handbook is packed with great accessories to help with your games. There are tons of tokens for tracking objectives or common in-game effects like Mystic Shield and Inspiring Presence, as well as turn trackers and a tear-away roster pad specially formatted for writing your matched playlists.

While there are loads of new battleplans in the new General’s Handbook, there’s always room for more – 62,208 more, with the Open War cards. These cards allow you to generate new battleplans in minutes, with randomised deployment and objectives alongside game-changing twists and cunning ruses and Sudden Death conditions. If you’re struggling to pick a battleplan or are looking for a new strategic challenge, these cards are for you.

Finally, with the allies system in the new General’s Handbook, you may be hunting for some new options to add to your forces – and we’re here to help. Our special allied boxed sets are packed with powerful miniatures that all fit into your 400 point allies allowance in matched play games. You’ll save some money compared to buying the miniatures separately, too!

Get your General’s Handbook 2017, Open War cards and the allies boxed sets today.
