Default Warmahordes Newb... Circle Orboros?

So I've never played Warmahordes. Never read the book (working on fixing that today, however). But I'm curious... is Circle Oro a good idea for a newbie? I'm going, basically, on looks right now, but I would love to try and put together a Warpwolf/Warpborn sort of army, as I love the Werewolf/Worgen feel.

I'm also considering tying this to a possible Counts As for a Mordheim Beastmen warband, so it'd kill two birds with one wolf.

Circle is a finesse army, very combo oriented. It can be really bad ass or it can get stomped. It has, in my opinion, some of the most awesome models in the line though.

Circle does require more of an understanding of the rules to be used at it's best, so it's not the ideal starting army. It's still a great way to learn, as it is very ability and combo oriented.

Just don't be discouraged if you lose a few games to start.

As a faction played with just the starting box its a very good faction to play and a good faction to use in a journeyman league as I have been discovering as the starting 'lock pKaya has some really useful tricks that can stop your beasts going crazy when you need them most.

If you like lots of shenanigans with movement they're the faction for you (and warpwolf stalkers make good stand ins for minotaurs)
