Well, I got hold of the 2E beta rules...Me and the wife are brand new to the game (I am branching out from 40k, want something different to sci-fi and fantasy backgrounds), so flicking through the beta rulebook the next few days and will probably have a few test runs to see if we like it before committing to more models...Though that said I love the minatures regardless so may buy anyway.
Would you recommend Guild as an easy faction to learn the rules? I really like the Ortega models and may order the box set. Heard they are quite easy to learn (was told they are "like Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter" lol). Also really like the Neverborn minatures and the fluff (Teddy!), but heard very different things about their playstyle (glass knives?).
