Looks more like Bestigor to me

The older beastmen plastic heads had separate horns already.

The ones in the picture look like self-cast heads using different plastic bitz. The one on the far right in the lower row looks as if Ungor horns had been used.

Thanks for the infos. In fact those are not plastic heads, but resin cast. I did think it was just resin cast of the palstic one, but it's seems they are unreleased resin cast.

I bet those are the old plastic ones, recast with the horns attached.

More like dodgy knockoffs.

Looks like it to me as well.

As they are coming from an GW staff with other unreleased stuff, dont think it's the case ;) .

Some parts looks unreleased, like the horns on the champion and the ones to the right.

Looks like the genuine article.

I doubt it fella.

Plastics (to my knowledge) tend to go from either 3Up/Render and rapid prototype, straight to steel mold. no time for resin.

In fact, they are resin castings of the metal castings that are also unreleased.

They do look to my very untutored eye like the original casts of the models that made up the studio's 6th ed beastman army. The sculpts painted by the 'eavy metal team at that time were some kind of rapid prototyped version or weirdly cast incarnation which were frequently dramatically different to the actual plastics in the box. You can see some recognisable elements- some of the faces, some of the horn arrangements, but they're a lot rougher and harsher than the finished polished plastics.

Very cool. You are the unreleased stuff king!
