They look like Mega Armoured Nobz for 40K.
Yeah, an army of Nobz & Snakebites.

I can only applaud that.
I dunno if they will feel out of place, like a relic of a lost age...

I was meaning more the minis but agreed the existing Battletomes are going to be updated or rolled together and given Endless spells etc.

I think for me the setting has no real space for 'normal people' and any attempt to shoe-horn them is unlikely to stand up to any real questioning. I think this is the single biggest turn off for me.

This is just a reduction and purge of the range that has been ongoing for a while. Buy the new stuff, which to be fair to GW is their business.
Definitely. I think it will be interesting to peruse the range once things have settled a little. Still, the mix of old and new is obvious and often jarring.

Oh indeed, its been on the cards for a while. My main concern is getting some Dark Elf Cold Ones before they go so I can convert up a small Exodite force for use in 2nd Ed 40k.
