Well... Kind of. We are overhauling the old Dalek Mod Daleks to make them fit more with the current style of models in the mod. For the past 4 years the models have been really basic. No detail. Flat. Textures made in MS Paint etc... So we thought it was time to change all that. Below you can see some of the new changes we are making to the Daleks.
We decided that the original Dalek model was so iconic that we had to try and keep as much of it as we could. This was where we then decided upon the 2B and 4B Dalek variants.
A 2B Dalek is the original styled Dalek with the 2 balls on the front of the model.
Whereas the 4B model has 4 smaller balls on the model.
All of the Daleks are being updated into this style. So far the models which have been updated are as follows:
As well as 2B/4B Dalek Models we have decided to implement a feature which was first put on our to-do list back in late 2013. Interchangeable arm attachments!
What this feature does is when a Dalek spawns it will randomly select an arm attachment from a wide array of arms. So far these include:
Each arm attachment will change the Daleks behaviour. The plunger will be the default arm attachment, giving a Dalek the default abilities. However a Dalek with a claw attachment will be able to cut down iron doors, burn through wooden doors.
These changes will be arriving in Dalek Mod Update 46. More information will be posted as these features are developed!
No fear. We are also introducing a new system into U46 which allows for resource packs to take more control over models in the mod. So you could create a resource pack which replaces the new models with the old ones if you so wish.

I was wondering does the tea cup arm have any special features for the dalek or just normal?
And are these just the confirmed ones? Or are these all the arm attachments?
The tea-cup arm may have some special features in the future, but I don't know for sure. At the moment, it's just a re-skin of the sucker arm as far as I'm aware.
So far, I've made 3 versions of the 2 clawed arms, grey, gold and black (60's+ Daleks, Gold Dalek, Paradigm Dalek).
I also started making a 3 clawed arm, but it has been shelved for now, so I can focus on the main task at hand. I'll go back to it later if I have enough time.
maybe if a dalek that has the teacup arm, like ironsides ( i believe that's his nickname, i forget ) then every 5 minutes you'd have a 25% chance of the dalek saying " would you care for some tea? " and then the player would be given a cup of tea, which would replenish a small portion of the hunger bar or health bar
