Has anyone tried the new Dune expansion?

With the Ixians and the Tleilaxu? I never had any of the expansions for the original game, some of which were incorporated into the advanced rules of the new version, but I know the Ixians came out in The General at some point. I don't recall there ever being a Tleilaxu faction.

I've seen the rules and they seem pretty interesting. The Face Dancers for the Tleilaxu can be even more devastating than a regular traitor in some ways and the cyborgs for the Ixians, plus the mobile stronghold, makes them into an extremely combat-oriented faction; even moreso than the Harkonnen at first glance.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to get some experience.

I asked for a review copy but they did not reply. While I play Dune quite a lot lately I'm in no rush to get the expansion. The base game is just one of the best ever made and I don't feel the need for variety.

The factions are based on old variants but they have gone through actual playtesting and changes so I expected them to be much better made. So I would also love to hear if someone has any experience with it. I'll get it eventually.

I just picked up a copy and would like to give it a try sometime, but I'm not sure when that might be.
