So since I am going to jump on getting myself the collectors method of assassins due to the made to order being available, I have come across a small stumble which is the Culexus. All other assassins had 2 models, Vindicare with his Pistol pose and Aiming Pose, Eversor with Gun ready or Hamlet ready, Callidus with About to stab and About to stab (I actually had to double check that, same post basically and even the new one doesn't change!) however the Culexus has pointing and apparently that's it.

 

Just want to confirm if that is the case or if the second sculpt of the Culexus is something of a harder to find piece.


I Chapter Master 454, Chapter Master of the Angels of Justice, Warboss of WAAAGH Gubskul, Commander of a Catachan Regiment, Phaeron of a Tomb World, Shas'O to a Cadre and Princeps of a lance of House Taranis hereby pledge that I will not take up any further models til all other prior have been fully built and painted to tabletop standards. There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

If you refer to those older scripts in white metal, didn't the celexus have two head variants? I could be very wrong though.

Now there's a 1000 pound answer that helped me find the difference. Having now looked closely, one version is a stubbier version while another has a long "tail" on it, very odd distinction but one that I now know. Thank you.

Did the recent made to order release come with both heads, or only one? Do I need to make a missing components claim on mine only having one head option?

I think the Callidus Assassin had 2 different poses.
