Savra Kickstarters Miniatures

I really do like these sculpts of the Lizard Savra warriors with Swords and Javlins, and I would love to buy them, I don't like the rest of the Kthones though so building a Muster of just Savra units would be very limited...

Is there plans for any more Savra units in the future?

Re: Throwing my toys out of the pram....

You're the only person who's ever said (to me, or to my knowledge) that frenzied units are too powerful; almost everybody else I speak to won't use them because they know they can't control them fully.

Re: Breakthrough Frenzied Units

So to be sure that I am playing correctly, I may not be of course, a Unit can only perform a Breakthrough action if they have completely destroyed the unit they charged into, if at least 1 member of the unit remains the breakthrough action cannot be performed.

Is this correct?
