Now, the reason this intrigues ME is that the documents are completely unillustrated, which leaves things totally to the imagination about how these characters are supposed to look.
After a quick look at the PDFs it would be a blast to design characters and do paper minis based on the text. If only there was the time... I'd pick one of the armies and do a Reptilian redesign theme to it.
To our players:
We have decided to do something radical. We’ve been paying a lot of attention to our forums and talking with our players at the conventions this summer and it’s clear that the anticipation for MkII is driving everyone a little batty. Many are excited, some of you are a little afraid, but the suspense is killing everyone and the speculation is killing us! So after a great deal of deliberation we have decided that the best thing we can do for the mental well-being of our community is to completely change our plans and do what we said we wouldn’t: we’re going to put all of the MkII rules and model information online as PDF downloads, because four more months is just too damn long for everyone to be holding their breath.
There are some disclaimers and explanations that need to accompany this.
First, the rules and stat info are final. While the books and cards are still in layout and will be for the next few weeks before they go to press, this is the final form this information will take. So you can be confident that nothing you see here will change between now and when the rules come out in book form unless we find an editing mistake at the last moment that needs to be corrected. But our development on this is locked. You have the final data.
