The Skitarii have to be THE out of left field 40K army for some time. The Harlequins were interesting, but for Games Workshop to bring out a line complementary (or even competition) to their Forge World Mechanicus product is interesting!
The miniatures themselves are very very nice. The level of detail is on par with the Tempestus Scions. As images leaked across the forums people couldn't help but be impressed by the level or detail and change of pace these miniatures brought!
Now here's something you may not know... they don't come with 32mm bases!!

There is also two variants - one for comms and the other you would assume is a leader. There are enough heads not to use these though if you don't want to.
There are two command heads, both different as well ad bare heads and at least one other command/ heavy weapons head. These are very nice and I'm tipping a hot seller on the bitz market!
Speaking of Dark Elves, it's a bit sad to see that these aren't ball and socket jointed (below) so if you want variance from the designated pose there will be a bit of work to do.
The Arquebus is also nicely done with echos or Soviet WW2 anti-tank guns running through it's design.
There is also a special base for the Arquebus gunner which makes sense. Good for modelling options too.
I think going without ball and socket joints is lazy - but the miniatures still look great!
Hope you like it. Sorry, but that's how I sound in real life!
Any advice would be happily received.
