Yes, I was surprised and pleased to see the Manflayers up. They were released during 6th edition and were not for sale for very long before going oop. They are one of the coolest regiments of renown and I'm glad they are in this release.

On a random note it pleases me that the descriptions for all this Legends stuff is in the present rather than past tense.
This fits my view of the Warhammer world being set in the time of Karl Franz (cannon) and everything happening after that such as the Nemesis Crown/Storm of Chaos/End Times/Age of Sigmar being hypothetical possibilities depending on our battles and their results and narratives.
"World that was"... Pah. I play in the "World that is"
They were originally a Dogs of War/Regiment of Renown unit - I could dig their original rules out if you were interested. They were one of the old DoW units that held up better in terms of looks, and also lasted longer than most before being discontinued, as they were often used in DE armies when DoW disappeared - their aesthetic and armament made them ideal Shades with great weapons.
As for buying multiples, since you'd end up with multiple command groups unless you want to do some converting, I'd suggest not. The Dark Elf "Shadestar" was a build that I've seen used occasionally (a non-fluffy big unit of shades with great weapons bolstered by characters), and that's the only reason you'd really want to buy multiple sets.
I just saw that. I was in 2 minds whether to get her and decided to and saw that. Not sure how they’d sold out as they haven’t made them yet (allegedly) maybe the demand was too great? I might give them a call tomorrow
I’d love to know if anyone has actually ordered Morathi and if they were contacted about a refund. It just reeks of a BS response. Perhaps demand was so great they realised that it would impact the sale of their new Morathi model...
mottdon I’d love to hear what they tell you if you query it.
