Really glad I didn't buy any of the norman/Saxon sets as they came out. I didn't want to expand into a new era at the time, but now look forward to getting all the new sets with the old sets and not having to buy more sets of ones I already have.
Really looking forward to these big sets but I bought all the dark age minisets when they came out so there will be massive duplication for me. I'm probably daft enough to buy them anyway because I will want the unique set that is always included with them but that will leave me with loads of figures I don't really want. This policy of Strelets is a bit difficult to deal with - if I hadn't bought the sets when they were sold individually and Strelets had never produced the big box then I would have missed out on them but now, if I want the new unique sets then I am going to have to spend pounds duplicating stuff I already have. S'pose I could try and sell of the surplus.
