It looks like Defiance Games is almost ready to actually sell something to someone:http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=249945
Their first batch, now availabe fro preorder (not strictly for purchase as the news item text claims) is a fairly predictable if reasonably affordable set of Space Marines (the Aliens
kind, not the Ultramarines
kind), but they are promising Bugs and even "intelligent aliens" soon - as well as numerous human factions, including some less well covered ones like the Chinese.
BTW is the cease and desist (based on the use of the word "Defiance" in a context that may confuse customers) from MJ12 already in the mail?
