Purchasing demons just to buy more units to play said demons would be money spent that I couldíve used on a unit I know I want. Luckily if I ever get demons, these figures will (probably) still be available, but for other figures this isnít the case. If there were a section talking about what a unit works with and what youíll need to play that unit that could help people decide wether they want a unit or not, because some of these are limited time offers like that new Cthulhu looking figure. Honestly, it seems like Iím gambling buying units I may or may not want.

Am I alone in thinking this?

I'm not sure what to do about this. I appreciate the sincerity of the concern. We announce the minis, but you don't know if you'll like the design, or whether it fits into current or new synergy web. That's fair!

On the other hand, if we wait until everything is clear in the design to announce the mini, then it may be too late for people to find them. That is the tension. Do we announce sooner, when the design is less well-formed, or later, when the mini is harder to find?

Your input is welcome.

The SoV never announces figures, we use the figures that come with the submissions. You can always see exactly what unit the figures would come with, but there's no way to know if the designs will pass the review process or not.

You must mean C3V, not SoV.
I'm sure he does.
