The walker crews are simply brilliant!

Can't wait to do a cut-away head in 8mm with crew...

Well, I guess I’m buying a couple of sets already.

They look amazing.
Already planned on a few titans with details but now, may have to go LED interior with crew etc because why not?


Vanguard is just getting more and more impressive.

Full lit interior with crew? I would love to see that

I have painted up a detachment of the new Affray B squad heavy weapons - these are in Great Crusade/World Eater colours (with some trusty old classic GW Land Raiders for accompaniment).


Spoiler:




Have to say they are lovely little sculpts. Almost no flash and hold just the right level of details for the scale I think, so you can do everything you need with a wash and drybrush.

Makes you wonder how the hell ten soldiers would fit into that Land Raider?

Hah! Yes very true. Same problem with the Rhinos. I imagine that they could ride on the outside or something

To be completely fair, it is something that happens with real-life APCs. They are mostly clown cars.

Most baffling one might be the BMP-1, which is... well, it has fuel tanks inside the troops' exit doors. I starts at "ridiculous" and goes up from there:



"How do we fit inside that thing?"
"Well, mostly you curl up into a ball. And pray hard."

Managed to paint up a few marines. The new Affray Squads are fantastic sculpts. You can tell the forefront maniples are older sculpts, they feel a lot blob-ier, but as with everything in this scale that's no huge deal. (The dread is an old Epic one, not from Vanguard)

Very cool World Eaters there Zywus

Love the artillery contingent too. There was a chap over on the Tactical Command forum that had recreated the ForgeWorld Vraks campaign using the Vanguard miniatures and it looks bloody awesome.

Super impressive Aphyon!

Looks really good - I have been tempted by that Elysian airborne for a while, might have to get them at some point.

i'm just glad i could build it all in epic scale. if i had to buy it all in normal size from GW/FW i would have to take out a loan LOL

Thats also not counting all the epic scale terrain i have gotten over the years from greigsters lab, JR miniatures (RIP), monpoc, brigade models(great 6/10/15mm -and even smaller- terrain) and novus design studio that does double duty for battletech games.

Those 6mm battlewalker crew would be so full of character for a 6mm Necromunda/Inquisimunda gang.

Meanwhile, those airborne heavy and light combat cars would be great for a liberate Angelis project (i.e. a gang for 6mm Gorkamorka).
