Hi,

I may be completely wrong about this but did GW ever release a female Van Saar model?

I think that she just had a autogun or lasgun or something and was in a shooting pose. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Is there any other model I might be confussing this with?

Thanks.

I think one of the new Van Saar models had some feminine characteristics. IIRC it was one of the juves, thus would be armed with a pistol not a basic weapon.

A conversion possibly? There have been many pics in the past showing coverted Callidus Assassins with heads from various sources.

Unfortunately assassin models are massively overpriced in comparison to their small size so you have to be really committed if you want to go down that conversion route. Ebay is an option I guess.

Thanks for the feedback.

I didn't think it's a conversion, not from a Callidus anyway (some of those conversions are really cool though). I'm wondering if it could just be a simple head swap?

I had a look but all of the Juves appeared male. I've been able to get some decent images of all of the Van Saars from the gang box set; none of them are female. Does anyone have any images of the other available Van Saar models (painted, or good images, better than the ones on the GW store)?

I'm wondering if maybe 'House Van Saar Body 4' is what I was thinking about?

There was a female Van Saar model, yes. There was also a leader model, and at least one head for each. There was also a sprue (possibly two) which contained a chainsword and a flamer (and more I'd guess).

Sadly, neither of these were released; I was speaking about it a while back to one of the Mail Order folk, and apparently he'd being trying to find the models too (but without luck).

The mysterious "Van Saar Body 4", which is available but not shown on the website, is another Juve/CC-posed model - but is not female. Nor are any of the current 6 heads available female.

You can always convert though; the new VS Bodies are pretty helpful, and between Escher, Sisters of Sigmar and SoB you have a good selesction of heads to loot from.

There weren't any in the original 8 man set - there was one with a ponytail and the padded suits they wear could have been mistaken for breasts.

But he did have a beard though...

No, more models were released after that.

You can see some of them here (http://es.games-workshop.com/especialista/necromunda/bestiario/vansaar.asp).

Looking at it now I'd say the following was unreleased:

1 Female Body
2 Male Bodies
1 Female Head
2 Male Heads
Flamer
Chainsword

Since all the other new weapon sprues generally have a couple of special weapons and more prestigious CC weapons, I would suggest that the Chainsword and flamer would have probably been accompanied by a couple more (like a PG, Meltagun or Powersword perhaps?).

Thanks!

That's site's got the model I was thinking of on it. (I'm not imagining things, yay!)

It's a shame that they never released them really.

This is either a very handsome man or a very ugly woman. :p

@JaqTaar:
They're the ones that are already available.

@Eazy-O:
...It's meant to be a male... TBH, most of the new VS heads are pretty androgynous.

---------------------------------------

BTW, if you care to look through the various SG articles in thier site, you can see several pix which feature the new VS minis. Doing just that, it looks like there was a sword/powersword too.

i happen to have a juve model that is very androgynous. i was convinced he was a chick for a while. from the back he looks like a hottie with short hair.

this is a bit off topic, but i doesnt really warrant a new thread.

can someone tell me, if you order the Van Saar Gang box, do your get the old models or the new ones?

Major_Gilbear

Old models. And you have to search properly for the new ones ('cos the store only shows three of the four new bodies...). Shout if you need the codes, I have them.*


*Please do a proper/thorough search first though, yeah?

Sorry to bring back another OLD thread, (yes I love Threadomancy), but does anyone know how to get these new models now?

EBay or some other second-hand source. Just like all the other discontinued stuff. Obvious really.

Good luck getting those Van Saars on eBay. I have a dozen but I'm still keeping an eye out for more and I've never seen any up. :(
