Neutralizing is indeed a thing I had to learn the hard way in my company.
I am writing singular "they" and such things all the time when "composing" emails there. The frenchies often don't understand, the britains on the other hand insist on it.

I guess your english is better than mine, so if you say that "he" for "Beastman" is wrong in the year 2018, I follow your advice.

Thanks for those remarks, I'll take them now that I am already having it open... :-)

In my own opinion, "he" for "Beastman" is not wrong as long as its a male Beastman. I can't remember seeing female Beastman minis, certainly not from GW, but once you find and use them, "he" becomes weird. Is Beastman culturally sophisticated enough to use that "they"? I don't know...
The problem lies in the word "Beastman" itself, but only for some left-leaning people (on a sidenote, can I say "people", or is that not inclusive enough?).
I guess I'm trying to say, Priorities...

But myself, I go with "they" and otherwise my guts in my texts. That's what compromise feminism gets from me cause it feels right and doesn't sound like you invented a pronoun for something that doesn't need exclusive pronoun representation of its own, if you catch my drift.

Also, in general I would not centralize the special rules text, but rather have each line start to the left in order to introduce counter-weight to the icon which sticks to the right.
That might be just a minor layout pet peeve of mine, though. Depends on more opinions.

What's the verdict on neutralizing all monsters from "he" to "it" even when the monster's name is "...man" or something supposedly quite intelligent or culturally sophisticated?

Unfortunately I couldn't view the new cards on my Android platform, but, KK's comments are something to work with. I agree that left-justified margins are preferable for the reasons stated. [Looking good. -edit] I disagree that a neutral pronoun is needed. All published HQ material uses the male gender pronoun, a convention of its time. Keeping male pronouns for a default not only matches the Hero Quest material seamlessly, but also preserves the nostalgic feel. So says an old man. :dwarf:

That's fair enough for me.
