I linked the wrong one, sorry.

This one went up on May 5. No release date on it, so my mistake.

The specuation was that "Old Friend" will release on 24th because it's Total Warhammer's anniversry.

It would be nice for a second Empire faction, while I haven't bought any of the DLC except for the wood elves I have tried to play as all of the free secondary groups. Was wondering why the Empire and the dwarves are the only factions that don't have a second faction.

Dwarfs have a second faction with DLC (and Greenskins get a third).

Depends what you mean by "good". :P

They're MUCH harder than the main Dwarf faction--your units receive +50% upkeep penalty, and your Lords +100%, until you capture Karak Eight Peaks, which is guarded by a strong stack glued to the city. The new LL is a very good fighter but has a worse "red" skill tree than generic Dwarf leaders because he doesn't get "Grimnir's Heirs" and only improves Rangers instead of all ranged units like other Dwarf leaders.
It also hurts that whn you play as him the Crooken Moon get a ton of cheats on top of the regular AI cheats (the reverse also applies).
On the plus you start with four high level ghost heroes who are immortal and immune to assassination.

EDIT:
Lizardmen army roster:

Looks like ALL the generic lords and heroes are included this time.

Edit: Apparently some of their units have a "rampage" mechanic where they kill their own men. I guess they made the Lizardmen much stupider than in the TT game. Apparently it's the "feral" dinosaur units, which I do not believe existed in TT.
