That's unfortunate. I was thinking, fairly seriously, of starting them up as a christmas-ish project. It's a bit frustrating having no clue if the overpriced metal mini's will suddenly be replaced by new, awesome plastic ones, or if the army is just on the backburner indefinitely. Either way would be ok, but my approach would change up a lot if I knew which was the case.
I haven't seen their rules, and I haven't downloaded any of the pdf scans because I have a (overzealosly) healthy fear of viruses. So I won't be able to get a feel for the army until I spend way too much on finding an old copy of the WD. I'm not asking for the rules, obviously, but can anyone here give me a decent run down of the army ahead of time? Sort of a look at their units, a look at the biggest problems for their list to deal with, a look at what the list does best and how it does it, etc? A beginners guide to the SOB kind of, to help me decide if I want to spend entirely too much on this project before I do.
I know it's a lot to ask, but I'd appreciate it a lot if anyone could take the time.
