The General's Handbook 2019 is out and everyone is wanting to know if their army got cheaper or they got the nerf bat.

Below I have listed all of the point changes that came with the Generals Handbook 2019. If a unit or battalion is not on the list, it means it did not change in points.

If you are looking for a good price on the General's Handbook 2019 check it here.

Bonesplitterz got NO points changes this time around. Based on earlier handbooks and GW's specific comment on it (lol, Bonesplitterz and Gutbusters are just as deadly as always) it is clear that something is happening.

A Bonesplitterz release with a new battletome, two endless spells and a terrain piece? My money is on that releasing within the year.
