Vanguard Miniatures update thread - June 16th: Tainted reinforcements @ 2016/06/24 12:00:26


Post by: Malika2


Noticed there wasn't a thread for Vanguard Miniatures in the rumour section. They're specialised in 6mm ranges and have taken over the now sadly defunct Troublemaker Games who have done a few amazing crowdfunding projects for their Defeat in Detail range.

But whilst Troublemaker Games are gone, their range isn't. And besides that, it's also expanding.

So keep your eyes on this thread to stay updated on some kick ass 6mm sci fi miniatures.

Upcoming pre-orders:

Cybershadows Jackal Warstalker:
Cybershadows Jackals are found ranging far ahead of heavy mech battle squadrons these “light” mechs are the eyes and ears of the heavier battle units. They are extremely agile for there size and can cover ground at phenomenal speed when necessary. Lightly armed in comparison to the dreadnought or leviathan it none the less has very potent weapons that can easily decimate regular enemy formations.

Operating as lone scouts or in teams of two as long range recon/raider units these machines are not to be underestimated and are considered high priority targets by novan high command.

The other main function of these stalkers is as escorts and flank shields for the cybershadow’s main battle formations for which duty they are aptly suited.

This model comes with the following components:

1 x hull

2 x leg sprues

1 x pistons sprue

1 x heads sprue

1 x weapons set

Spoiler:




Novan Archer Heavy Artillery Gun (Towed):
The mainstay of novan artillery trains the archer is a heavy 155mm calibre cannon capable of utilising several types of munitions. This particular variant utilises the tracked artillery carriage and will be found where battery positions have been established for extended periods of time.

This pack contains 3 x archer artillery cannon.




Novan Bombadier Heavy Mortar (Towed):
The novan Bombadier heavy mortar is a common site with novan shock assault forces and is used in general to soften up an enemy position prior to an assault and is also used extensively during siege operations where whole battalions of these weapons can be found bombarding enemy position’s almost constantly.

This pack contains 3 x bombadiers with shells.



Novan Elite’s Mauler Assault Transport:
Mauler assault tanks are starting to see widespread service with Tusculum Nova’s elite fighting troops. Developed in secrecy and built to the highest specifications this battle winning vehicle stands at the pinnacle of novan armoured fighting vehicle design.

Massively armoured and heavily armed this machine has been created to deliver unscathed novan elite forces directly into the teeth of the enemies defensive line.

This particular variant has two sponson mounted twin anti-tank laser cannon and a roof mounted twin heavy machine gun for clearing the immediate area in front of the assault ramp. If the enemy force’s being engaged are numerous then the machine gun mount is often upgraded with a twin rotary cannon turret which has truly devastating firepower at such close ranges.

This pack contains 2 x Mauler tanks with modelling options.


Spoiler:









Novan Elites Scorpion Light tank (A):
The scorpion light tank type A is a general support tank armed with a rapidfire automatic solid projectile cannon in the main turret mount and two hull mounted heavy machine gun sponsons.

This pack contains three scorpion tanks type A



Novan Elites Scorpion Light Tank (B):
The scorpion type B is a dedicated tank hunter armed with two anti-tank laser cannon in the turret and two additional laser cannon in hull sponson mounts. This configuration makes this vehicle a serious threat to unsuspecting enemy armoured units.



Novan Overlander Armoured Truck:
The Novan Overlander armoured military truck is a versatile and flexible design seen everywhere novan forces are in operation. This particular variant is in use with mechanised infantry formations.

This design is also used extensively as a soft-top general logistics vehicle.

This pack contains 3 x Overlander trucks with modelling options and is fully compatible with components from the overlander tractor.




Novan Overlander Artillery Tractor:
A common variant of the overlander the halftrack artillery tractor and utility vehicle is used to transport both novan heavy artillery forces and there munitions but also as a general rough terrain alternative to the regular truck.

This pack contains 3 x Overlander tractors with modelling options and is fully compatible with components from the overlander truck.



Novan Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV):
The warrior IFV has seen service in every battlezone in which novan forces have campaigned it is a versatile and rugged design with numerous patterns and variants being used across novan controlled space.

This particular variant transports novan armoured infantry formations and allows these troops to keep pace with the many tank formations alongside which they serve. It has seen many different armamants over the years but the most common fitment is a quick cycling pulse laser.

This pack contains 3 warrior IFV’s with modelling and weapon options.

Those look very nice! If those were in 15mm, I would be all over them. Should be very good for not-Epic, though.

Sprue?

Does that mean plastic?

I know resin also comes on spures...


Vanguard Miniatures update thread - June 16th: Tainted reinforcements @ 2016/08/04 07:25:17


Post by: Malika2


Sprue is perhaps an odd choice of wording. The kit is made of metal (I do hope that Vanguard will eventually move to resin and/or plastic), but contains parts to turn the ship into one of two possible variants.

Why are the treads backwards on everything? Shouldn't the high side be on the front to make it easier to go over rough terrain?

Spoiler:



Vanguard Miniatures update thread - June 16th: Tainted reinforcements @ 2016/08/29 22:03:44


Post by: AegisGrimm


The treads are backwards because they are supposed to mimic the silhouettes of GW-designed models, which are innately badly designed in the first place, putting "cool" over "makes sense" on things like treads.

Backward tracks or not, these designs look awesome. Good job Vanguard!

Post by: Pacific


Regardless, think they are getting the feel of the miniatures down pat which is what most people are going to be going for.

The Novan Elites are lovely little miniatures, excellent detail level considering the scale.

I'm hoping to mix these in with another company's miniature range (called 'Trolls under the Bridge', look them up)

The support vehicle can be armed with either a bunker-busting demolition cannon, or have the tank-hunting heavy laser cannon. I guess it would work fine in many human armies?

Trenches were the usual reason for that shape, the Stormer's wheelbase is long enough that it doesn't need to worry about those for the most part, I'd say

That frigate model is pure greatness - the aesthetic is spot on for gothic human starships! Malika, you might have seen my feedback re. future ships on other sites - this little chap here fills me with hope.
Will Vanguard be launching a heavier cruiser type too then? Might it be perhaps c. 10 cm long?

All these shots look great. If I collected 6mm I would be all over this, but that new fighter might have to be bought regardless for some 5150 Fighter Command.

Thank you for the kind words!

The ship is a frigate, which as Ragsta already stated, is about 5cm long.

An Assault Cruiser of about 7.5cm is in the planning stage now. After that it will be the Heavy Cruiser/Battleship variant.

The Destroyers are also ready done. Which means that after all that I'd only need to do another frigate variant, which would more or less complete the ships range for the Novan Elites.

And another little announcement from Vanguard Miniatures' Facebook page:
A new addition to the VTOL range will be this skycrane variant which should be out in a few months time.
Due to continuing issues with the fragile tail fins on these models i've commissioned a resculpt of the weak area which has now been fixed by beefing up the tail booms and extending the horizontal stabiliser forward to greatly strengthen the whole area whilst keeping the overall aesthetic of the designs. This means a re-print and new moulds so the kakapo and moa once sold out will not be back in stock until the new moulds are created. I know this is not ideal but the problem needed addressing if the models are to remain part of the range.

Couple of questions, Malika...

1, Do the infantry sets come with any bases, or do they need to be purchases in addition?

2, The two command sets - you say 15 figures from three strips, but there are six figures to a strip. Should they be 18 figures?

Hi Dysartes,

Thanks for your question, I've brought it up with Vanguard Miniatures, here's their response:
Ah my bad of course there are six figures on the sprues so yes 18 it would be.

No no stands supplied as customers have their own preference as to base style used there is no point in including bases that people may not want.

However, round bases can be ordered over here.

Nothing set in stone yet. All I know for now is that Vanguard Miniatures want to do something along the lines of a big release for the ships range. The Novan Elites ship range would need a few more months to complete, so I've got a feeling we might expect them early next year. Unless John (the guy running Vanguard Miniatures) decides to spread out the releases as bit...

I donl;t suppose anyone has any comparison shots with Dropzone units - its played alot at our club and I liek some bit not all models - and many of these would be great but maybe alittle small?

Thing is that these vehicles are designed as 'true scale' 6mm stuff, meaning they are a little bit larger than the old epic scaled vehicles. As for fitting with Dropzone, that game is 10mm scaled if I recall correctly. I'd imagine most vehicles would then be on the small side. The larger vehicles might work fine. The Novan Warrior might also work since it's a rather chunky vehicle.

Thanks - I use a mixture of DZ and Epic at the moment - the Titans work well and the tanks as do some of the infantry so might haev to get some and have a look then !

If only GW could do for their own IP what several very tiny companies can.

Although, for this exact same reason I am a fan of both Vanguard and Onslaught, because they show more gumption and imagination than the monolithic (in comparison) company that dropped the ball, as "obviously" noone is interested in Epic anymore.

I just wish Vanguard was as easy to get over here in the US. 6mm Horus Heresy in it's modern aesthetic would be beautiful.

@AegisGrimm: Vanguard should indeed figure something out for this. I guess that would work if the demand is high enough. But what is the main problem for getting the models in the US? Is it shipping or tax problems?

@Silent Puffin?: Can't give you an ETA on the plastic models, but for now you could go for combining the anti-aircraft turrets with the flatbed trucks.

Hello vanguard here I do ship to the states regularly and have several US customers if I may ask what specifically puts you off ordering from me please i'd be most interested in knowing.

That's something I think you should bring up with Onslaught Miniatures. You could suggest it to them directly, they've got their own section on the Tactical Command forum, just go here, or directly to the Sisterhood thread.

But regarding different scales, they do have some 15mm scaled Sisters.

Mostly the shipping from anything over the pond makes me make hard choices about buying games from the UK (my small group of people I am able to convince to game requires me to nearly always buy both forces that will hit the table, so I can't go bonkers with gamer ADD)

The preorder stuff really may tempt me enough, because I can always go the old Epic Space Marine trick and get two heresy forces by splitting everything purchased into two small forces. Then I'd just need the Epic ruleset that manages smaller forces the best (I think probably Epic Armageddon versus NetEpic from what I have played of it.)

I really like the looks of the upcoming not-Cataphractii terminators, and the "Gladiator" dreads.

Thanks for the feedback I may look at trying to cut the shipping charge but in most cases the fee is pretty much right in fact in some cases I need to pay more than the amount charged to the customer especially if the parcel is heavy.

Understand your situation regards needing to buy both forces that would get expensive. Still as you say you can split the models into equal forces if needed. I'm useing the elites for heresy armies too hence a lot of the newer designs are inspired by the period. SHT's next in line for creation.

New reinforcements for the Novan Regulars, the Dragon Flame Tank:




Dragon flamethrower tanks are not operated by regular mechanised forces but by specialist engineer units attached to novan battlegroups on an ad hoc basis as the situation dictates.

Yet another variant of the popular warrior chassis the rear hull troop carrying section has been replaced with a massive armoured fuel pod which feeds a high pressure flame projector turret capable of hurling a jet of extremely volatile and highly combustable liquid many metres. Utilised to breach enemy defense zones and stubborn pockets of enemy resistance this terror weapon has been know to cause the enemy to withdraw at the sight of an approaching dragon before it even gets close enough to fire.

An horrific but highly effective weapon system used sparingly but to great effect by novan forces the dragon flame tank is considered by many a distastful but none the less necessary tool.

This pack contains 3 x Dragon tanks each with three variant turret options.

£12.50

Actually the stormer would have been on sale this week but I had a few issues with the casts so they've gone back and the moulds are being redone to hopefully rectify the situation with luck this one will be on sale by the end of the month or early next month at the latest.

Here we have all the new wave 2 models together so you can judge relative sizes we should have better images up once i've had time to take them.

Novan Elites Guardian Main Battle Tank:

The elites guardian tank is yet another product of Tusculum Nova’s most advanced research and development program to equip it’s elite forces with the most powerful weapons and equipment that can be provided. Guardian’s are intended to act as front line main battle tanks for elite forces a roll originally filled by the older scorpion designs which have now been relegated to a supporting roll for the mechanised squadrons. The hull bears a similar appearance to the mauler assault transport and was developed alongside that vehicle. Although smaller than the mauler it is none the less a very potent design heavily armed and armoured with an impressive turn of speed .

The core weapon system is a remote operated turret mounting a double barrelled railgun fireing either armour piercing or high explosive ammunition at extremely high velocity. The ammunition is stowed in the large automated ammo supply bin at the rear of the gun assembly. This arrangement allows the weapon to be operated by a single crewman.

Two sponson mounting points are also available these can be fitted with several weapon options with either the standard laser cannon or heavy machinegun being the most common choices and there is also a permanant forward hull MG fitted as standard.

In the guardian elite forces have a highly versatile and potent battle tank able to survive in the deadliest of warzones.

Secondary armament consists of two sponson points just like the guardian with the same weapon options and the hull MG as standard.

I can't speak for Vanguard Miniatures here, but I don't think they're gonna upscale their complete range at this moment. Besides it being quite an investment to do, there's also the question whether the whole 8mm wave will actually be that big. Another question might be the compatibility of the 8mm stuff compared to the 'upscaled' 6mm models (many epic scale infantry models are closer to 7mm or even 7.5mm).

I know that the vehicles I've designed myself (the Novan Warrior + variants and the Novan Centurion) are already a bit clunky compared to the traditional Epic vehicles, meaning they might work out rather well in both 6mm and 8mm scales.

And now that I'm posting...

This will probably be the last release Vanguard Miniatures will be doing in 2016. Expect tons of new crazy stuff in 2017.

Novan Elites Stormer Siege Breaker Assault Carrier:


The Stormer is the largest combat vehicle currently in operation with novan elite forces. Designed to carry novan elite siege armoured troops right up to the walls of enemy fortifications unscathed this incredibly tough fighting machine has aided in the fall of many an impregnable fortress. Massively armoured and heavily shielded this vehicle can absorb an incredible amount of punishment on it’s approach.

Armed with a breaching microwave battery to it’s front boardering the assault ramp it also has several sponson locations for self defense and a upper hull mounted rocket mortar positioned to bombard the defenders on the walls, alternatively some will carry rotary cannon mounts instead.

This set contains 1 x stormer hull with separate assault ramp and 1 x stormer weapons sprue.

Image of the actual model will appear ASAP.

£16.00

New prints are in:


New prints for the elites again, two on foot assault sprues one with pistols and swords and one with double pistols.


They will be released as normal as i'm attempting to have monthly releases instead of large batches now and then.

These guys may well be out late next month.

A little message from Vanguard Miniatures:
Winter troops news, as everyone knows there is an issue with these figures ankles being weak so some breakages can occur at the moment i'm adding an extra sprue to each infantry pack to help cover this issue.

So anyway i've been working with ben to re-work the figures to resolve this issue here we have in ben's own words and explanation of the changes and an image to compare.

We've kept the original aesthetic as far as practical so the old and new figures should mix together no problem.

Changes include:

Proper hands instead of blocks.
More form-fitting coats instead of "bell shaped" coats.
Minor mod to the rifle.
Pose changes to be more dynamic (old figures all stood pretty straight up, these are now hunching forwards a bit.
Minor detail realignments (shoulderpads, head tilts, etc).

Overall they're pretty much the same as the long-established popular Winter Infantry sculpts, just a bit better quality, and obviously with the weak ankles dealt with. Not a huge update, but a needed one.

Two more tiny updates from Vanguard Miniatures:

New version of the Kakapo arrived today we have increased the thickness of the tail booms and extended the horizontal stabilsers forward which seems to have sorted the weak tail fins issue. Next model to re-work will be the Moa, already updated, just awaiting printing.

(new version on the right)





Arrived today the new Mauler weapons set this set will allow you to create several different weapon loadouts for your Mauler models.

Good news from Vanguard Miniatures for those who want to play around with their possible Predator proxies:

The Scorpion Tanks can now be purchased as a pack of just four hulls and all turret variants are now available individually this will allow you to purchase a squadron of four tanks with just the weapon combinations you need so kind of a modular build your own tank squadron approach. The two original three tank packs are still available but I think this new approach is more flexible and hopefully will prove a popular choice for customers.


Scorpion Tank Hulls x 4

Scorpion Tank Assault Cannon turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Autocannon Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Heavy Flamethrower Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Heavy Matter Conversion Cannon x 1

Scorpion Tank Microwave Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Plasma Cannon Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Twin Laser Cannon Turret x 1

On another note, remember the mentioned weapon loudouts for the Mauler? Here are some more pics:

Bit of a big announcement. Vanguard Miniatures as started with releasing some 15mm stuff:

Today we see the release of a range of 15mm scale figures for playing skirmish style games in the Defeat in Detail universe. This is the start of what we hope will be an expansive range of 15mm scale models. These initial first figures have been developed by Troublemaker Games and have been available on their webstore for a while now but are now also available here. Over time we will be collaborating on new additions to the range and there are already some items at the casters due for release soon.

Hope you find the new range of interest.

That looks like some 28-32mm ... chaos? It has a very pulp or maybe 80s feel too.. I like it but not sure what to do with it (Rogue Stars notwithstanding)

The FW style hellhound is delicious.

The Skinnerz are going to be part of my collection "soon". I am seriously thinking of selling off my ~10k points of 28mm orks and downsizing to 15mm for my great green waaagh..

I had forgot that these guys have BFG style ships. I have an ork fleet.. and have had them in deep storage for so long.. Now that I see a potential for BFG gaming again, I might have to pick up an imperial fleet to do battle with (if I can convince either of my kids )

@Kid_Kyotto: Erm, the printed ship is the Novan Elites frigate kit I've designed for Vanguard Miniatures. The ship underneath it is the Earthican Light Cruiser, but considering its size it will probably be redubbed as a frigate as well.

All backers should have received their pledges a year ago; did you move in the mean time, and also miss the emails from the campaign website asking for new addresses for anyone who's moved?

Look very nice!

Definitely an interesting move doing these in 15mm, and I hope they will catch on.

Rules wise I suppose you have different options, I can't see why moving the scale up of Epic Armageddon wouldn't work, or even actually adapting something like the 'Battlegroup' set of rules (with the miniatures based individually) might be an interesting project.

I'll grab the opportunity to pimp these rules. Elements of E:A (the author was an E:A playtester IIRC) and the Starship Troopers rules. (I think he also worked on Mongoose's Battlefield Evolution, which borrowed from SST) Provides tweaks for multibased minis. Choose from generic lo-tech, mid-tech or hi-tech lists, and the options each provides. (In the spirit of giving your minis the rules and equipment that seem most appropriate, not min-maxing!)

Cool to see Vanguard dipping into 28mm METAL, but I'm not feeling it.

The riflemen all have that same gun across the chest, legs in a squat pose which isn't exactly aiming, not exactly on guard, not moving, not really anything.

I'd recommend looking at some other metal trooper lines (the 2nd edition IG come to mind, long with Necromunda) where some guns are at 45 degree angles, others are pointed up. Some legs are running, some walking, others at attention.

On the plus side I really like the uniforms, besides the chaos stars they're very pulpy, with the ornate helmets (with fins!) those guys could be working for Ming the Merciless!

I sculpted two different rifle arm poses, one aiming, one holding it lower (see attached pic).

That's supposed to give ten basic rifleman poses (5 body poses x 2 rifle arm poses), plus more variety with 5 heads.

Maybe I just took rubbish pictures that don't show the variety of the figures properly.

More rifle arm poses are certainly a possibility, if these sell it'd be easy for me to sculpt more rifle arm poses.

On the plus side I really like the uniforms, besides the chaos stars they're very pulpy, with the ornate helmets (with fins!) those guys could be working for Ming the Merciless!

Thanks. :-)

Geeze hate it when the sculptor actually responds to my critique of the sculpting

One other recommendation, since I think a lot of folks will want to use these in games by another company, which has a workshop, it might be good to put out one with separate arms where it's easy to swap in arms with the rifle or melee weapons of the modeler's choice. Makes life easier for all of us!

Just to illustrate what I was talking about, here's the original metal Cadians from the 90s





One is firing across the chest Hollywood style but the others have weapons raised or lowered, one is trotting, one reloading, one is even aiming his weapon real-world style. That's the sort of diversity of poses you really can't get with multipart plastics but can get with metal.

If you keep the axis local to the section of geometry you're affecting, it should work out alright. I've seen ghosts that have a similar effect.

Few questions, as a first time buyer of Vanguard and interested in the new bases.

Whats the bases to cost for a pack? Recently lots of people have been selling the amazing rectangle bases again and I do need more for my epics.

Also about how long after a order is placed does it take to get to the states? Anyone know?

Cost of the bases: plan is that they'll cost the same as the round bases, so £4.50 for 50 of them.

Shipping to the US: that all depends on US customs. I guess it takes a few weeks? Not sure though.

Look what just came out:

Novan Elites Battlemaster Command Tank:
The Battlemaster is a front line C4i (command, control, communications, computer and intelligence) vehicle for novan elite forces.

The design is basically a stretched mauler assault transport chassis and shares many components with that vehicle, the increased internal space allows for a full battlefield command and control suite to be installed giving up to the minute intelligence and situational awarness to the battlegroup commander via the highly sophisticated sensor dome mounted on the upper hull and functions in a similar roll to the regular armies Dictum command vehicle.

The sensor module (with a more limited capacity) can also be mounted on the trojan APC but the smaller size of this vehicle does not allow for the full command package or holo tank to be installed.

Due to the increased internal space a transport variant of this vehicle has been developed for novan elite troops in heavy armour allowing up to 10 such troopers to be transported instead of the mauler’s 5 man capacity with this armour type. With the sensor suite removed the vehicle also has the capacity to mount a scorpion tank turret for increased firepower. This however does reduce the transport capacity back to 5 men due to the turrets operating systems, crew and ammunition.

Dimensions are: hull length 42mm, hull width 25mm, hull height 9mm not including sponson mounts or sensor dome.


Single model (£7.50): http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-battlemaster-command-tank-x1/

Two-pack (£14.00): http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-battlemaster-command-tank-x-2/






And yes, it's compatible with existing turrets/sponsons:

New release!!! I'm kinda excited here, for years I've been working on designing ships and one of the reasons why I've joined up with Vanguard Miniatures was to have my ship designs put in production. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a whole bunch of ships being released!

Novan Elites Panthera Class Heavy Frigate x 2 - £7.00



The Panthera class Heavy Frigate is the workhorse of the Novan Elite fleets. Heavily armed and armoured, its various weapon configurations allow it to fulfil many different void combat roles.
No matter its broadside configuration, the Panthera’s basic armament includes two heavy twin linked dorsal mounted turrets and two pairs of prow torpedo tubes. Its broadsides allow for different types of weapon systems which can be changed whilst in dock due to it’s modular design.
Most commonly used are weapons batteries, more than capable of tearing huge chunks out of enemy vessels many times its own size. Another popular configuration for the Panthera is to fit it with launch bays, allowing the heavy frigate to carry several squadrons of Javelin fighters and Pilum bombers. In order to protect other ships of the fleet from waves of ordnance and enemy fighters the Panthera is sometimes also configured with broadside turret platforms capable of projecting a withering volume of defensive fire.


Panthera class heavy frigate x 2 with three broadside options each. Images show three vessels to demonstrate the broadside options.

Model is 52mm long, bases not included.

I have had a walking pose created for the gladiator and mirrored it to gain two new poses. Also had the arm mounts lowered as I feel it creates a more pleasing aesthetic for the model.

Need some reinforcements for your Novan Elites?

Novan Elites Hammer and Hunter Tanks - £6.00


As Novan Elite forces grew to operate more independently from other elements of the Novan military, they were forced to develop vehicles and units normally assigned to the Novan Regulars. This means that the Novan Elites needed to develop their own siege tanks. A modification of the Trojan Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) hull was developed to match the Regulars’ Support Tank Hull. Like its Warrior IFV based brother, this variant of the Trojan has been armed with various weapon configurations – the two most popular being the Siege Cannon and the Heavy Laser Cannon.

The Trojan Hammer is a light siege tank, deployed to take out enemy bunkers and fortifications. Its Siege Cannon can easily turn armoured structures into rubble.

The Trojan Hunter’s role is that of a tank hunter. Its Heavy Laser Cannon has been designed to penetrate heavy armour and thick shielding, making the Trojan Hunter the perfect candidate to eliminate enemy tanks and even larger war engines.

Pack contains: 2 x hulls, 2 x siege cannon, 2 x laser cannon

Skinner reinforcements have arrived!

Skinnerz Infantry Set B - £7.00


The human gene-mutants known as Skinnerz were an early experiment in creating a genetically modified hardy breed of servile human workers during the initial colonisation of the fifty worlds. Increasing their muscle bulk and bone density had a cost however, as although their intellects remained within normal human range, increased charges of adrenaline lead to heightened aggression and reduced tolerance for following orders.

The first worlds were colonised successfully by the Novan peoples with the assistance of Skinnerz workers, but ultimately Novan hegemony was not to last, as a series of violent rebellions by Skinnerz led to the fall of Novan authority on three whole planets, as well as leaving some planets partially contested.

Incensed against normal humans due to their hundreds of years of slavery, Skinnerz rebellions gradually changed from actions aimed at the overthrow of their Novan overlords, to the destruction of all Novan peoples across the fifty worlds of Tusculum.

Within the realms of the Novan Kingdom, Skinnerz worker usage was phased out, redundant workers being exiled to rebel-held areas in exchange for (typically brief) peace treaties, or simply exterminated in massacres that have become memorialised as war cries amongst surviving Skinnerz.

With a history of bloody conflict and entrenched hatred, between Novans and Skinnerz the future seems one of inevitable warfare.

40 x Skinnerz Infantry, 16 x rifles, 16 x melee weapons, 4 x rocket launchers, 4 x heavy machine gun.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

News.

The small but beautiful range of gothic starships from the battlegroup helios range formerly available from our friends down south have been purchased by vanguard miniatures and will be in store very soon. The models will remain under the battlegroup helios label and all the other ships from vanguard will port over to this label as well and I hope to continue to expand both the hellian fleet and the other faction fleets over time.

I must thank Aaron and Zac for the opportunity to own these wonderful ships appreciated guys, and i'd like to wish them all the best in their future endeavours.


Statement from Aaron and Zac from Battlegroup Helios:
Hey folks,
As you've probably noticed it's been quiet around here lately. Both Zac and I have seen our lives get busier over the last year and it's left us with dramatically less time to devote to BGH. The result is the development of the Terrans have stalled and restocking has been intermittent. That's not really fair to all of you who've supported us and so we've decided that it was time for us to pass the BGH torch. For the past month we've been working with John at Vanguard and starting today, Battlegroup Helios will become part of the Vanguard Miniatures family. We trust you'll give him the same support you've give us. Check them out at http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/
Thanks and see you among the stars!
Aaron and Zac

Thanks for the compliments! As for the APC, how about this? As for a gun emplacement, the Eloi Established do have a Light Cannon support platform. But I guess you mean some of the bigger stuff?

Regarding the Onslaught stuff, they will be restocked, can't give you an ETA though.

Hi MLaw, i'm the owner of vanguard minis I have recently received my stock of all currently available to order onslaught minis. Granted there are more releases imminent which I will be ordering soon but it will be some time before they arrive here in the UK.

Malika2 is one of my designers as well as keeping news threads such as here updated for me across the net so he is quite capable of answering questions on my behalf. He's a great ambassador for the company so please consider him qualified to answer your questions or if necessary he will pass them on to me.

Unfortunately with also holding down a full time day job i've just not the time to run the company and update numerous forums as well Malika2 does this for me he's a good man and his efforts are really appreciated.

So anyway yes i'll be continuing to restock onslaught as and when new releases and funding permits.

Cheers John

Yeah.. there is no way for us to know that.. From my perspective it was some random person questioning the accuracy of my claims about you guys stocking Onslaught.. remember that there's tons of other users and threads here.. so this interaction isn't exactly in a vacuum.
Last time I looked I didn't see the newer not-Taurox that Onslaught had. Unless you added them in the last few days, I am pretty sure that's still accurate. I was also hopeful that you would stock their bits system but I would totally understand why you might not do that.
As Onslaught is a US based company, I would probably tend to order more from them directly but I am putting together a decent order from your store in the next few weeks and figured I would get some onslaught stuff at that point and maybe save on some shipping. I wouldn't be ordering any of their not-IG/AM stuff at that point as I am still working on Orks and Space Marines but I was trying to figure out who to order what from for planning purposes.

Again.. this forum is full of people that like to jump in front of comments that aren't related to them in any way and without knowing about Malika being associated that's what that seemed like from my side. Like your models though and hope to see more new 6mm releases in the future. Hopefully one day you guys will do a multipart building system along the lines of the sweet looking human/ork sprues you have.

That's the one!

We've tested this factory already with the prototype Mixed Theme sprue, and turnaround was just 3 weeks. I'm very confident we can deliver in November, or before Christmas if something goes wrong.

Well, Vanguard Miniatures did post something on their Facebook:

A personal project of mine that ended up becoming a whole new line due for release in about a month's time. Defeat in Detail in 3mm scale for playing truly epic battles during the many internal wars within the Novan Hegemony itself.

The Cybershadows will be joining the fray in the form of their mighty War Stalker battle groups either allied to support your House or your enemies or both.

Novan Regulars are already under development and will join in the conflict once their transport ships arrive.

Below are samples of all Novan Elite vehicles currently under production and a sneak peak at the prototype Dreadnought Stalker.





To give you a sense of scale:

My ships work has sadly enough been a bit delayed. Partly due to some family matters, on the other hand due to some of the 3mm work.

The submitted Destroyers, the Escort Carrier and Defence Monitor have been submitted and printed, as has the ordnance. The station still needs some work to make it mouldable.

The Lance Destroyer is ready for printing, the Lance Frigate still needs some work.

Can you put that next to a, say... round 25mm base to give us some sense of how frustratingly small they are?

So this is apparently going to be a quick-play version of rules that will be released for free with the 3mm miniatures and will eventually be expanded upon.

Is this basically 3mm not-Horus Heresy? Cause I'm in if it is.

At the moment it's a 3mm internal conflict amongst different Novan Elites subfactions and Cybershadow mercenary Stalker engines on all sides. The Novan Regulars will eventually be introduced as well.

Many people have used the 6mm Novan Elites models as standins for Epic Space Marine stuff so I can imagine people might try to use this as a means of doing 3mm Horus Heresy.

Some striking colour schemes (I really like the Superbus!). It is nice to see a background is being developed rather than just a set of rules.

Skinner reinforcements just arrived from the printer's:

Skinnerz drop troopers prints are in and i'm really pleased with them. Before anyone asks on an ETA I can give you no solid date as of yet, when I can afford it really.

A little update from Troublemaker Games:
In some non-Crowdfunder related news ( https://igg.me/at/smallscale-terrain - pledge early, pledge often!), we're pleased to announce that Troublemaker Games will soon be releasing plastic "flying stands" for wargaming, through our retail trading partner Vanguard Miniatures.

The bases :

- have a 32mm diameter.
- have 90 degree angle markers embossed on them, which may prove useful for some gaming usages.
- have a 1mm lip on the underside, so that they won't slide around the table like completely flat bases do.
- make their owner 3mm taller (if the owner stands on top of one).

We have the ability to make the bases in clear plastic, or coloured plastic (grey, black, green, blue, white, etc).

Which would YOU prefer?

Miniature shown atop the base is a Vanguard Miniatures "Novan Heavy Frigate".






Oh, and a little teaser from Vanguard Miniatures' Facebook page:
A teaser of a new 6mm model that will most likely appear in the up coming funder campaign.

Absolutely stunned at the level of detail you can fit into a 3mm mini.

I had some of the micro-scale armour miniatures from years ago (little Tiger tanks, PzIV's and the like) but these look like something else entirely.

Honestly, I'd like to see what that looks like before I jump in on the (very nice looking) miniatures.

Definitely +1 to this!

The detail on the 6mm guys is just awesome, and these look very promising.

Hope not to post OT, but these are some 6mm guys I have painted up in pre-heresy World Eater colours (the rhinos are not Vanguard miniatures)

On Facebook they're polling about resin ships (which they have trouble keeping in stock) vs metal

https://www.facebook.com/battlegroupHelios/

Cleaned up the cruiser print ready for moulding, i'm of two minds on this, getting models cast in resin in sufficient volume is proving problematic where as getting models cast in metal in volume is easy. So i'm thinking should I cast this one in metal instead.
Thoughts people please.

Post by: Pacific


Think the answer must be... METAL

Assuming that it won't then make it more expensive, more people able to buy it is better. It doesn't look like a complicated build, nothing load-bearing other than perhaps magnets for the flight base (which most would do anyway)

Think certainly it will be easy compared to some of the old battleships back in the day!
