Default What happened to the sharp faced SM helmets

I'm a Tau player, but I've started gathering some smurfs for our 400pt games every once and a while. I have been looking for the pointie faced helmets that I used to see often on them, but now I can't seem to find them anyware. Anyone know if these are just older (out of production) models, or are they are particular flavor I'm not looking correctly for?

TIA

Do you mean the mouse marines? I've only found the mouse marine helmets in the Space marine Combat squad, not the tactical squad.

They have sharp pointed mouthpeices, sort of like a mouse perhaps.

I want my entire SM army to have them (very later medieval).

As above, there are a few in the combat squad and tactical squad, but not enough to put one on the whole squad (I think...confirmation?)

You can buy them individually as collector models...

...and here for the MK6's (pointy faced) terminator honors...they don't look nearly as beefy as the current terminators though, might be mistaken for a regular joe

Once upon a time, all Space Marines had those helmets. Why do you think Orks still call Marines "Beaky Boyz"?

yeah this is how I remember first seeing the SM at a tournament at Dragoncon 91. I liked the look.

Too bad I can't just find a pile of those helmets for sale somewhere.

All my Space Marines have pointy nose helmets! That's probably because I bought them in the early 90's without knowing that they were a part of some table top game. They were just fun to assemble and then melt under the sun with a magnifying glass. Now I regret melting a few of those guys as they are probably quite valuable to collectors who want those Mk 6 power armor marines.

Edit: Thanks for the model number
