May Preview #4: Naffatun

Holy moly! This was a big surprise, as no-one saw a Naffatun Boxed Set or a Naffatun resculpt coming.

Naffatun are one of Haqq’s most dangerous Light Infantry. Cheap as cardboard, and flammable just as easily. 😉 And they got a redesign. The old Naffatun came with a visor, similar to what you see in the Hassassin Sectorial all around. The new ones have some kind of welding masks, with 8 eye slots, and they have become a lot more bulky, almost looking like they are wrapped in some bomber-squad protection gear. That makes perfect sense, as the Naffatun are probably encountering lots of exploding things when they bring their flamethrowers to the field.

Next to that, this month finally revealed which sectorial the Naffatun would call their home. They’ll be featured in the Caliphate when the next book comes out! For you Caliphate-heads out there, that’s good news! The baddest LI of Haqq comes to reinforce your future forces!

    Well I was going to start Yu Jing, but these models and the Haq starter are convincing me otherwise! How long till they are available to buy?

    Hmmmm I think I’m in a minority but I like the old sculpts better.

    Which is fine by me as I own and have painted about 2 or 3 times the AVA of them now anyway. 😛

      Each their own of course! 😉 Personally, I hoped for the visor of the oldies, as I like that sun-shaded visor style for Haqqislam. I own the starter Naffatun myself, and love that model. I’m thinking she will look very tiny compared to these padded blokes and galls.

      On the other hand.. Caliphate is one of the sectorials I’ve been looking forward to since I got the hang of this game. Having the Naffatun (loved their rules) combined with the Caliphate makes me looking forward even more! 😉

      I guess I’m in that minority as well.
