To bad GW doesn't realize that and put out some alternate heads.
You know, something as plain and simple as that and I would be a very happy furby!

I'm the same way about the Salamander rumour. For two previous codecies the Sally was rumoured to be moved from forgeworld to an codex unit. Didn't happen then, doubt it will now. But if it does I'll be very happy.

I'd collect Steel Legion if they were made plastic. Part of the reason I made my own regiment was because they were so expensive. I'd just use different colors than the khaki they're usually seen in, not much my style haha

Saw this on /tg/.



The models look like they're the same poses and everything (right down to the weird sergeant pose, although the bases are slightly different) as the current metal, which as prompted debate as to whether this is a new kit, a plastic mould of existing models, or Finecast. Personally, I have no idea. The poses are exactly the same, and so to for the models were it not for the red armbands now present. If anything they might be snap kits in plastic or resin.

EDIT: The helmets are different. They appear to have gone full on Stahlhelm rather than the skull cap style featured before. I like them, so I really really hope this is true.

if there truly as similar as you say they are, then should we not consider the idea that they might be photo shop?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

That's been raised a lot in the /tg/ thread. Basic consensus of the arguments equals this:
-They're all left handed, indicating a crappy mirroring job.
-Angle of the Warhammer 40,000 logo, model bases, and the word 'miniatures' seem to be different
-Could very well be repaints meant to increase existing model appeal

I'm still at a loss here. I really want them to be real but I also don't want to be tricked into believing this isn't anything but sketchy.

Here's a comparison:



It looks a little different, the length of the coats for example, but what really stands out is the helmets. I have a hard time believing those are photoshopped, but it is possible nonetheless.

And here's a quote from the original post:

Quote:
Sorry, but it was very dark in the Warehouse. And my phone is not that great for pictures anyways.

So, it looks like this http://natfka.blogspot.de/2013/08/im...n-release.html was/is true.
I saw several of these Steel Legion kits. A few big ones too, 2x Tanks and a Flyer, I think they are new.. Not a big IG fan so no idea if new or repack. There was also a bigger Sentinel. (super big size box) I guess that’s a new unit.

By the normal Time schedule we have, you should see this in Stores in 5 weeks

I really hope this is true. Steel Legion is great, especially if they get their supplement like I remember it being mentioned somewhere.

It's not impossible to have faked those helmets and coats with Photoshop, but I can't really tell if it is with these poor shots.
