    Hi all! I am a former 40k player and new to AoS as a whole.

    I recently purchased Seraphon as well as the General's Handbook 2017. I have noticed recently that the points I see in the book seem to be different than the points that everyone is detailing when listing their armies here on the forum. For ex: Lord Kroak is listed at 450 here on the forum, but is 560 in the General Handbook.

    Am I missing something? Did I purchase an old book? Thanks in advance guys!

    You must have the GHB 2016, 2017 has a Stormcast Eternal on the front cover

    The first General's Handbook lists Lord Kroak for 540 points (according to the version I have here in the app). The 2017 update lists him for 450 points.

    Wow, I definitely have the 2016 version. Mine has a chaos lord on the front. The shop owner listed and sold it to me as 2017. Totally took advantage of me as a new player.

    I hope for you that there is another shop for you where you can trust the owner !

    Plus, the 2017 book contains A LOT of shiny improvements for Seraphon.

    A really stupid behavior for a shop owner, it will bite him back.

    Yep.
    It is a cool book but the rules part is out of date.

    IDK if its against the rules or not, but im personally in favor of putting that LGS/owner on blast. Call me an old school sergeant, but a man stands by his word and if hes gonna be scum then you have a responsibility to prevent him from taking advantage of other new players

    UPDATE: I went into the same store and explained my situation. They were happy to take the 2016 version and give me a 50% discount on the 2017 edition! Not all is lost and I definitely feel comfortable going back there.

    That's a great news. So, maybe it was an honest mistake.

    With this development Yes, It probably was.
    Good! :)


    But must be said that also the ghb17 is running toward its deadline, with the incoming new edition.

    Yes, indeed. But that another question. I don't think that you can stop selling the ghb17 because the new edition is near, because, it's not here for the moment.
    I had the same experience last year when I bought the gbh16, and only 1 or 2 month after the gbh17 was release.

    True.
    And anyway, GHB17 is a great manual.
