Wow, great news! The possibility of future expansions featuring these;
Visigoths, Vandals, Ostrogoths, Franks, Alemanni
...has me IN! Especially the Franks, Ostrogoths and Visigoths. It's a bit disappointing to me though that no mention of Turkic military units like the Bulgurs or Kazars aren't mentioned, but I guess that might be wishing for too much. If and when the Franks box set releases I will buy 2 to recreate the disaster that was Brunhilda and Fredegund. I don't see any mention if it'll feature leaders like C&C:A, which is something I'd reaally like. I could probably just use the more martial figs from the BL Heroes expansion. Man, the potential for integrating this with existing BL components has got me daydreaming!
I don't usually P500 because shipping from GMT often eats up any savings in comparison to my cost when ordered through my bargain FLGS. I'm thinking I'm going to push the [P500] button for this though.
