Yes, a really rather strange request but I am in need of a favour. Across all of the Space Marine multi part sets, which do you think is the best, most intriguing looking, well sculpted bald head.

Cookies and kudos to those who reply.

If you are talking plastic, I'm a huge sucker for the classic bald head with respirator(the two on the left):


If you are talking metal compatible head, I love the Iron Hands Sergeant head:

I'm almost afraid to ask why you are asking this...

I'll have a look tonight, I've got about four thousand of them in my bits box!.
ESE - can i just ask why you thought to give your heads a nice timber backdrop? Points for artistic merit of course but it does seem a little over the top?

Methinks he purloined it from eBay, there's a bitz seller called Blackdagger Games who photographs all his wares on his wooden decking. Must be a California thing.

There's one that has a hint of fangs that I like but I have no idea what kit it came from. They all just go into my bitz box and I pick out the ones I like for the model I'm painting.

Personally I think the new Blood Angels heads have the best expression and detail, but my favourite has to be the Space Wolves one, yelling with his mouth super wide open. He has an extremely ugly giant mohawk, but it is very easy to shave off and produces the best bald head, in my opinion. Very menacing, very powerful. I'll look for a picture later.

The bald head in the Black Templar upgrade sprue is rather nice for charecters.

It is on the top row, far right of the line of heads.

As shadows revenge said, Space Marines should be wearing helmets.
These are all the ones I have, the second is pure class for sheer pouting grumpiness (ever seen a space marine sulk before?) and the third is my favourite for terminator (the film) based paint schemes. [img] [/img]

I'll be going with this one I think, found it going through eBay and seems TBE had the right idea too.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230421424157?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Plan is for an Alpha Legion army, to buy around 10 of them and use them for anyone without a helmet.

I am Alpharius.

Hello all

I found this post while searching for some bits for custom miniatures. The dark head in the first picture, could someone tell me what figure that comes from? It is just what i've been looking for. That would be a great help!
