Zhayedans, of course! Shows that I have yet to get a few N3 games under my belt. 

Ghulams may be in there, although I'd like a different line infantry (If the Naffatûn don't fulfill that role for the Caliphate, that I don't really see them doing) to show the Sectorial's high-tech, elite feel.

And the Ahl-Fassed, with their shady ethics and not really high-tech kit (Basic powered armour, no real high-tech weapons to speak of) I think would be quite definitely Khanate.

I would bet Saladin is there too. So we've got:

 

LI: Naffatun (linkable), Ghulams (linkable), Zhayedans (linkable), Khawarijs (linkable), Tarik Mansuri

MI: Saladin

HI: ???

SK: Tuaregs

WB: ???

TAG: Maghariba Guard

 

Unknown: Muktar, Numair

 

@Scorch: A lot of expensive stuff; it seems like it will be more like the Hassassin Bahram than the Qapu Khalqi. I agree that it is tough to include a lot of diversity (including a 5-man fireteam) without a Ghulam or Naffatun base. A Zhayedan or Khawarij core is half a normal list. Then again, 5 Zhayedans (lt, doc, HMG, sniper, ML), 1 Khawarij, 2 Tuaregs, fill in the rest with remotes and Ghulams - sounds good.

New naffatuns look ok, but they lost a bit of faction specyfic style.

 

Gone are the characteristic Haqq boots, replaced with "Ariadnalike" bulky ones.

Gone is characteristic Haqq helmet with transparent Y shaped visor (would it be HB only now?) replaced with something that looks between PanO and Nomads

 

And that bag on belly looks bad IMHO.

 

Generally, not impressed... But I have 3 of them already, so they would have to be superb if I was to buy more :D

I'm actually stoked for a box of Naffatun.  They have AVA T, after all, and are so good for the points.  I hate repeating sculpts in my collection, so now I will actually be able to run a horde of Naffatuns, which is delicious. 

 

I think they probably redesigned the helmets because the existing helmets on the Naffatun look like they should belong to the Hassassin sect, and they don't.  I imagine that perhaps they originally were going to be part of the Bahram, but then were changed, or the sculptor used the wrong reference, because no-one else in Haqq has that type of blank-face visor unless they are a Hassassin.

They will in their sectorial, no doubt, but they've been dropped to AVA 4 for Vanilla.

I think the redesigned Naffatuns look swell I'm not bothered if they're a boxed set. I also wouldn't be surprised if the box comes with some new profiles but I doubt that'll happen.

I'm not happy with the bug eyes, if I wanted bug eyes, I'd play pan o.  Looks like I'll have to try to pick up some of the visored models when I get a chance
