I don't think they actually did, cheeky bastards. I've ordered Abaddon when he was taken down from the listing (but could be Searched for!) and it seems it's coming in the previously shown version.

They've replied in an email to me that the chaplain does actually have a skull helmet option, only they can't show it online. It's very likely that Abby also has both head and backpack options.

I really like the bare head as well.  The whole model is spooky enough that it could work as a Dark Apostle.

NICE. GW should really go back to proper skull helms on their Chaplains (like the Terminator Chaplain) because the current lot look cartoony although the Primaris is a great step in the right direction (albeit ruined by a pimp-stick instead of a crozius). Same for the Reivers, but again, they're not as bad as the Chaplains.

EDIT - Given how close these guys' models name and nomenclature are to GW's own I'm frankly amazed that they've not been hassled already! lol

Yeah this was my thoughts as well, I think with a tiny bit of work this could be a really nice 30K Word Bearers model.

They were, that's why they show the models with alternate heads / backpacks now. You still get the correct ones "as a bonus", but they cannot market the skull helmet or Abaddon's topknot head and classic backpack trophy rack.

There were news that Grim Skull / Wargame Exclusive were not doing the not-Typhus miniature at all. There were concerns that it was due to the GW IP pushback that had them redesign the not-Abaddon and not-Chaplain and not market the alternate bonus parts that made the product look like GW's own.

It turns out that the not-Typhus is probably due for the same kind of treatment, not gone completely!

I strongly disagree. Helmets that look like they are skulls are very silly. Helmets painted with a skull design, or molded with a skull faceplate, are much better.

Ehhhhhh not my cup of tea. The addon parts look decent but the individual models look a bit...off somehow. Almost Blizzard-esque. Doesn't look like it'd fit in with the official stuff. And those Sisters look positively dreadful.

 

I might still buy the Tau chick posing with the pulse rifle though. Lore friendly? No. Hilarious? Yes!

It is interesting how more realisticly proportioned model seem to look odd for people after 30 years of GW models. I personally love we/gs models. High class detail and unlike  a lot of GW models, the details makes sense and aren't just there to cover flat surface on a model that was not sculpted by a man.


"Felix wondered how Calgar might feel about the primach's unilateral altering of the Codex Astartes. The captain could not help but feel that, in his drive for victory and efficiency, Guilliman had been careless with the feelings of his existing sons. Increasingly, Guilliman looked to the Primaris Space Marines as his first solution. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the days of the older space marines were numbered."

I dunno, man. The promotional pics don't give me confidence- the details look either too soft or too "chunky", not to mention there's just too much detail full stop. They make even GW's busiest models look minimialist in comparison. And that's before we get into the disasters that are their female models. Seriously, those balloon boobs make me cringe.

 

And even if they were sculpted impeccably (which they REALLY aren't) the fact is the aesthetics don't gel with the genuine models. Plenty of 3P companies make good models that still don't fit in with the 40K aesthetic.

 

Also they didn't even paint the models on the website- they literally just photoshopped an unpainted one. That's just terrible.

Except that I'm not even 30 years in the hobby (not even close) and I too think they look odd.

i think its safe to say - 

some people don't like them, and won't be buying them

some people like them, and will buy some of their models

 

 

if you're in the second camp, the details come through on the casts and I have no complaints outside of lengthy delivery times

So... I guess I could put that on a Bastion and call it a Plasma Obliterator (by GW), if my opponent is fine with it?

What else could this be used for in 40k/30k? Besides self-made Datasheets, that is.

Or nice scenery?

 

I'm not trying to be negative towards it, just curious.
