Alpha Legion Headhunters!!

So here we are at the GW birthday event and I am very happy to see that Alpha Legion are getting their first unit, the Headunter Kill teams.



They look stunning, I'm very happy with these. Unfortunately theres none available today but we are sure to see them from the weekender, maybe before. One very happy camper here!!!

Some closer pics as requested:

  2. These are gorgeous, have any larger pictures of them? Very nice work indeed.

  3. From the looks of things these are an upgrade kit rather than a full stand-alone resin kit?

    I'm a little disappointed at how static they look given their battlefield role - would have been worth sculpting new, dynamic legs for them IMO.

    1. I like them. Braced to aim. Think the detail on the upgrades is great. Wonder if they will be sold with the plastic bits as standard. Uncharted territory there.

    2. @Drake Seta. Do you know if it's a solid kit or an upgrade kit like the Imperial Fist units? If they're just upgrade kits an army using those kits for sergeants and random models would look phenomenal.

    3. Hi Argel. They are upgrade components. :)

  4. Yeah I would have had expected them being more action posed but the detail is lush. Will grab some more pics if possible :)

    1. I guess they're still pushing the BaC box. Which is usually fine but these guys should look dynamic, I agree.

  5. If these are conversion kits, I may have to order some Despoilers to get some more dynamic legs to go with them.

    1. Precisely what I'm going to do! I don't mind the expense because it's only one squad and they really should look special.

  6. Great!! Another upgrade kit... cant wait to not buy these. I'd rather convert my own.

  7. Oh noes... these pics seem to confirm 100% no combi-weapons for headhunters. Pretty models though, could serve as seekers to have an use at least:)

    1. Those are combi-bolters they're holding. Should be easy enough to replace those with combi-plasma or whatever you like. ;)

    2. Sure it would be an easy job, Ronald. But my point is that headhunters can't take combi-plasma or the like at all, according to RAW. This makes them inferrior to seekers,IMO. There was a discussion about headhunters and combi-weapons and some ppl have received emails from FW saying that headhunters are indeed allowed to take combi-plasma -etc. Now, judging from the weapon loadout on these pics, it seems they are supposed to take only combi-bolters, unfortunately:(

    3. You are correct, the rules do not give them the option to be equipped with combi-weapons, only combi-bolters. A shame, but it doesn't necessarily render them useless.

  8. For now... expect faq for headhunters using combi-weapons
