Hello everyone !!!

Following the Mercenary options in Forbidden Powers, General Handbook 2019 is going to expand on this theme with 10 mercenary options (the 2 from Forbidden powers are also included).

Rules

Mercenary us the Allied Point limit from the Army building rules. But you don't need to choose from the Allied list as any army can enroll Mercenary.

The one drawback is loosing one command point at the start of the game.

Good shock troop if your army need them !

Conclusion

That's it for the Merc in the General Handbook 2019. I am sure all these new options are going to shake the Meta. I mean, Having canon shooting all these DOK altar is sure to have an effect ^^
