Upcoming models - what do you want to see?

140 posts in this topic

A bit of open discussion.

So, with the Ayyar coming, Haqqislam has at least one model for every unit available. So we're not waiting on anything new. However, there's a fair chunk of missing profiles and a lot of models from 2nd, and even some from 1st edition kicking about., including 2 sectorial starters from those eras. There's possibly a year to go before we see book 3 and get RTF (though I seem to remember hearing something about getting some of their stuff early?), so I'm guessing we might see some resculpts or missing loadouts at gencon. What do you want to see?

For Hassassins, I hope to see some dual packs to get some of the more specialised models resculpted with both weapon loadouts.

Fiday 2 pack - Rifle and Shotgun. Possibly even Rifle and CCW/Pistol proxy.

Farzan 2 pack - Rifle and Boarding Shotgun. Take the chance to modernize the Farzan Boarding Shotgun while also releasing the long awaited Rifle Farzan.

Hussein Al Djabel - I don't mind the old model but the character models they've recently done have been incredible. It would be nice to see Al Djabel get a similar treatment.

Asawira Boarding Shotgun - it would be nice to be able to complete the set.

For Qapu Khalki, I think the majority of the stuff is fine, though there's a few missing peices that would be nice to see.

Hafza HRL. This is a great piece so far lacking a miniature.

Djanbazan standard rifle model. So far every Djanbazan in the new design are special weapons or specialists I'd like to see the standard rifle show up.

Jannisary standard rifle model - same as above, the only loadout missing is the standard rifle.

Wow, I didn't realised that after Ayyar we'll have at least one sculpt of all Haqqislam profiles :) Nice observation!

Still we have Halqas that are discontinued - yet we're waiting for changes in them, so we can consider them made ;)

I don't think that we'll be seeing any 2-packs - if I'm not wrong CB decided to do 4-soldier boxes or 1-mini blisters. I don't remember any 2-minis blister in recent past - I'm not talking about pilots with crapbots ;)

About new scultps - I'd like to see new Fiday, maybe Farzan. Daylami! Definitely Daylami with Panzerfaust, light shotgun - preferably not a box, since I have 3 Daylamis, but a 2-man blister, yet it's rather unlikely. I think that a box is most possible. And Zhayedans - especially sniper, but a box would be good to.

Another Barid would be highly appreciated also.

And.... I think I'm kinda happy with what we have in Haqq for now ;) Don't see any urgent needs.

And they've recently admitted it was a bad move, which, IIRC, implied (either directly or indirectly) that they'll be back to the idea, as to limit SKU bloat in cases that do not warrant a boxed set release.

@Loki is capitalising on that information, I guess

Personally, I'm not overly optimistic as of when this might become reality, and to what extent (i.e. how many double blisters are going to show up, compared to single blisters and box sets).

IIRC, they said Ninjas will be the next double blister, Killer Hacker and multi sniper.

Theyve already done 3 double blisters, the 2 Kauuri and the Tech Bee and Crab Bot.

Definitely at least two Daylamis, a box or better two double blisters would be great. PF models are the most important and the HMG would be nice too.

A female Barid in a dynamic pose...not aposing pose.

New scorpion Remotes (altough not realistic in the next years).

I am with you, about the Farzan and the Hafza. For the rest I dont really care, because a BS Asawira is not in my lists and the rest is looking good or has good stand ins.

What I really want to see are the supersoldiers...but thats a different story.

Daylami seems to be available only in starter set, so blister or box of them will be cool! HMG is a most want for me right now.

If i had to guess, i think we might see a new hassassin starter pack with 2 new daylami, a new fiday sculpt, a resculpted asawira, a new barid, and probably a new farzan. it will really emphasize the assassin vibe by having a camo, impersonater, and elite HI and Hacker.

I'd be all for this pack.

The crossed arms Hafza works for the HRL profile easily enough, and is the only reason for me to take that model. As mentioned before, a DJ with rifle would be nice to match the new design, along with a new sniper (I know I know, everyone loves the old one. I have two of them. It just bothers me when we have mixed designs.). Updated Helghast I mean Kaplans, would be nice.

A Daylami box would be amazeballs, Rifle, LSG, Panzerfaust, and HMG.

It's not a burning need, but I'd like to see an updated QK Starter Set that includes redone versions of some of the circa-N2 sculpts, maybe following the wacky new formats for the starter sets (with 2-4 line troops)

My dream lineup would probably be:

  • Hafza Rifle+LSG
  • Hafza HRL
  • Odalisque Spitfire (I hate the old sculpt)
  • Al Hawwa Forward Observer
  • Janissary AP Rifle
  • Djanbazan Rifle

Sekbans could also use a new box to match the scale of the Sekban HRL, although again, I'm not aching for it.

Halqas are the biggest need, since those are discontinued AFAIK. They might even be in the Ramah Taskforce since they aren't in the other sectorials.

The Hafza HRL is a close number 2 for me, however, since I think that profile has a lot of potential to be amazing when sculpted.

Last speculation was they would be the line infantry for the Gabqar Khanate sectorial. Fluffwise Mechanised Deployment helps them keep up with those Kum maniacs.

I thought they were the same scale, the HRL came out first but is a more upright pose than the later box.

Nah, the new guy is still a fair bit larger even accounting for that (a consequence of being post-CAD with his compatriots in the late stages of hand scultping), but it's not so dramatic that it can't be written off as an in-unit height difference.

The HRL Sekban is older than the box.

Dang, seriously?  I have both models and I never would have guessed.  The HRL guy went together so much easier than the others, and he looks so much bigger to me...

Thanks for calling me out!

The HRL Sekban had the benefit of not having arms join at the gun. Pre CAD models that did this were always a nightmare to put together.

I would love this Hassassin starter, especially if the Farzan was the Rifle loadout. A new Barid would be fantastic as well. He's become a staple of my lists with Killer Hacking Device so having 2 models available would be fantastic. Lightning is so lethal. With a new Fiday, I'd love a much more aggressive pose. Once its out of Impersonation, it should be terrifying.

This is pretty much what I want for a new QK starter. Jannisary and Djanbazan Rifles and Odalisque Spitfire in the starter would expand perfectly into those three link team boxed sets - light, medium or heavy infantry, and keeps the mercs separate. Al Hawwa Forward Observer would give another Al Hawwa model which is always welcome. I don't mind captain Awesome Hafza, but I can see wanting a different model holding a Rifle, and the HRL definitely needs to be done. Spitfire and HRL fulfil the SWC cost as well.

CAD-era isn't always a piece of a cake, either. See current Touareg Sniper for a very good example... :( 

I found her to be Odalisque BSG the ol' damn sculpt-level of a nightmare, ended up cutting her left arm in two, sanding, repositioning and filling/reconstructing with greenstuff to make it work at all :/

I managed to get it right after 4 hours of gluing, breaking, regluing, breaking.

then in its first game I dropped it off the table.

Helghast? Don't you mean Talon Operatives?

I think I remember Halqa being a Khanate unit.

 

Anyways, to answer OP's question, one more vote for HRL Hafza (preferably female), Janissary rifle,  and Halqa (heck, I'd take a doctor blister, or even just a regular rifle mook, although I do think USAriadna's grunt's are reasonably similar to what old Halqa look like). Also, although I'm likely in the minority for these I'd be interested in a general Yuan Yuan release (like the RV Yuan Yuan, but with a chain rifle or universal load out and hopefully female), a Saladin resculpt (perhaps even a box of two like Mushashi got, the current model's fine, but he's my number one disguise for my Hafza and I'd like a unique model for his stunt double), Muyibs resculpt box, +1 vote for Al Hawwa FO (however unlikely that may be), I know I'm a bit greedy with this one but I'd also like an explicit Shock Marksman Rifle on the Hassassin Ayyar (I just like the look of the SMR so much), and a male Odalisque for the fun. Of course it would also be neat for a new Hassassin Bahram starter to come along, especially with a modern standard Asawira. I just generally like HI and assassins.

They were mentioned in the fluff doing highway patrol duty in Gabqar, true. Also, with thier mobile background, they're likely to fit pretty well into the mobile-themed Khanate army.

But then again, Djanbazan are supersoldiers yet belong to the QK, so we can't really exclude a thing...

So the old Atalanta was pre-cad? She's more green stuff than woman at this point.

I like the currenr Sekban models but they are clearly old. And they could do so much with new ones. I hope they don't go for DYNAMIC POSES, they would feel weird. Their current poses are actually perfect, especially the shotgun.
