I've been looking to fill out my harlequin army and began looking on the website for the Troupe Master. It doesn't seem to be listed on their site under US or England? Anyone know what the deal is with this?

Never was. Troupe master is a Specific build within the Troupe kit in terms of specific model bits. There MIGHT have been a specific metal mini back in the 2nd ed sculpts but thats WAYYYYY pre-webstore.

So a Troupe Master is just a nominated Player that uses the Troupe models a la Kabalites to Trueborn?

Or warriors, wyches, bloodbrides, wracks, reavers, scourges, tacticals etc. Harlequins were first reproduced in plastic in 7th. Entire range was Solitaire, Shadowseer, Death Jester, and Troupe. Troupemaster was a glorified sergeant.

Edit: Just reread your comment. NO. They are a glorified sgt. this is a point of pedantry as in every way except technically you are correct.

You have to convert some Troupe model into a Troupe Master.

Yeah. Back in previous editions, the Troupe Master was just the unit leader, like a Sergeant or Sybarite.
His upgrade to a character of his own is a new thing.

It kinda is due to the fact that if they had no HQ option, Harlequins wouldn't be able to get command points without going Aeldari...

But now they got 2 HQ options that are both miles ahead of ours, so i'm envious.

I know Smile
I'm just ironising the fact that those HQs never existed before 8th, but manage to be better than ours ^^

A sign of things to come?
One of the only NEW units to come out of the Indexes, so who knows where this might take us?

They are doing this a lot lately, making HQ's with no models like the Grey Knight HQ being allowed in a baby carrier now but you have to convert it, same goes for the Troupe Master, I have seen a fair few people use the Masque Slaanesh model with some troupe or solitaire bits and they come out pretty nice. And unique enough to stick out in a crowd.

The Troupe master IS a model, int he Troupe kit, the box comes with 5 troupes and 1 troupe master.

Its b.c in 7th when the kit came out it was a Sargent, Harlequins had 0 HQ's in 7th b.c the rules where based off of old editions when they weird only elite units. They wanted to keep that feel and it failed.

With 8th out and the codex coming soon, we might see a re-boxing of the troupes and troupe master, tho this will make the boxes cost more over all, b.c as of right now you can get 6 troupes for the same price as a 5man unit in others or it is a 5man with a free HQ.

If they split it, it will be 35$ for the 5 troupes and 20-25$ for the troupe master.

I still have half of Death Masque on the sprue. I don't think such a reboxing is possible. It can't be split without a sprue redesign too many of the options are on the Troupe master sprue.

The gunner from the voidweaver/starweaver kit is an okay choice. You get two in the kit. They seem a tad smaller than regular harlequins but you can make it up with basing.

Their legs feel shorter, and their torso's feel wider, their stances are less dynamic and they don't have the insane twirly cloth bits coming from their loins. (seriously, those bits of twirly cloth add SOOOO much to the apparent size of a Harly.

Also, they aren't prancing about on Eldar-ruins that somehow magically teleport to whatever battlefield that the harlequins are fighting on XD

The Gunner is a different size, use the other guy.... it comes with 2 guys in back, the other one (are like the Venom Wyches that hang off) is properly sized.
