Ultimately I'll be needing a second display case. There's no way I can't start a new Imperial fleet with Marine auxiliaries and Rogue Traders for starters. Then there's the 3mm Titan legion forces I want to do once we FINALLY get 3mm Leviathans. I'll probably source Ork gargantuan options elsewhere as it doesn't look there's much movement there for now.

And then there's whatever happens with Tainted and Skinner ships...

Aaaaand, some 3mm reinforcements for the Novan Regulars:

3mm Novan Regulars – Warrior II Assault Gun Platoons - £3.00



The Warrior II chassis has been used as the basis for many Regulars vehicles over the years the Assault Gun variant was developed to support infantry in urban areas by providing mobile heavy firepower under armour for breaching enemy defensive positions. It has a lighter calibre of weapon than that fitted to the Elite’s Trojan Hammer Assault Gun but it still remains a very effective vehicle in its assigned roll.

This set contains:

8 x Warrior II assault guns (two platoons)

3mm is so tempting for some large scale games BUT I think 6mm is as small as I can go.

Same here, even if 3mm allows for some truly amazing tables, I'd be hard pressed to go bellow 6. Even so, the fact that there are 3mm orks makes me happy on a level this crappy year rarely did.

Do keep in mind that painting 3mm isn't really harder than 6mm, especially if you're using GW's Contrast Paints. You can paint entire formations pretty fast.

Here is a simple painting tutorial to do 3mm tanks.

Another thing about 3mm is that whatever difficulty in attaining a quality paintjob caused by the small models can be cancelled out by the way you can turn each base into a diorama, such as https://www.instagram.com/p/BnQ56HzCw6k/ and
https://www.instagram.com/p/BnYDG-RChI7/. It is also very good for mass formations: https://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/1035987-Sohfull1.html

As for 3mm shipping containers, my plans for 3mm necromunda are looking a bit more realistic with the release of these.

Yeah, I am very tempted as the game I want to use them for has Mass Formations.

Very nice!

I will get these, but just to mix in with assault troopers (dual pistols being the preferred John Woo way of shooting at someone! )
The same with the heavy guys will work well as just specialist/heavy troopers.

I know these are meant to be 'proxy' as Destroyers, but I think the FW concept of those miniatures is just such a wasted opportunity. "The most deadly troopers of the Legion: Nuclear, chemical and other forbidden weaponry, the trooper's armour blackened by the exposure to deadly radioactive weaponry, and the marines that carry them not expected to live for long...let's arm the miniatures with.. *pistols*... "
They should have been bristling with all kinds of 'WTF is that?!' style equipment, like the Legion equivalent of The Expendables. Instead, a massive wasted opportunity.
