That Arvus model was part of the black market forumware models, never stocked by Vanguard Miniatures or any other company. Basically fan produced models that saw circulation in the Epic community.

Reinforcements inbound!

Cybershadows:

Cybershadow – Praetoria Set 1



The Cybershadow Praetoria as we have designated them are an oddity within the Cybershadow military structure, although they can be seen operating and supporting other Cybershadow forces from time to time they seem to be an independent element not under the main chain of command. Their place within the Technocracy is not fully understood and is still open to some debate within military circles but it is known that they are an extremely aggressive and highly mobile force.

Set contains:

15 x Cybershadow Praetoria in four poses

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/cybershadow-praetoria-set-1/

Cybershadow – HK-1L Hunter Killer Combat Automaton



Another battle robot fielded by the Technocracy, the HK-1L is a dedicated rapid strike unit tasked with seeking out enemy vanguard formations in advance of the Technocracies main battle line and attacking those formations to cause maximum disruption. The designs long legs contribute to its high attack speed and elevated line of sight on the battlefield. The HK-1 is well armoured for its size and incorporates a defensive energy shield emitter located on its back. Two modular weapons hard points allow for the fitting of various weapon systems with energy based weapons being the most common.

A variant of the HK-1 the HK-1T has been observed operating in poor terrain and replaces the units legs with a large high speed track system providing excellent stability and good ground pressure in challenging terrain conditions.

Set contains:

2 x HK-1 hunter Killer robot torsos

2 x arm weapons sprues

1 x legs sprue

Figure shown for size purposes only and is not included.

Bases not included.

Novan Regulars – Siege Troops Heavy Anti-aircraft Gun Crews

Set contains 36 x siege troops heavy anti-aircraft gun crew figures in six poses.

not really news related, but I've ordered from Vanguard a few times over the last couple months - excellent prices, excellent casts, and amazingly cheap shipping for roughly 5 days transit from the UK to the US (east coast)!

Is it really fair to praise the sculptor for taking an existing model, nearly exactly replicating it and down-sizing it? I mean, it is impressive but It's also not actually their design.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

1 x heavy cannon

2 x cannon armour plates (left and right)

2 x cannon power cells (left and right)

1 x cannon turntable

All components are 3D printed resin.
Print supports have been removed but some clean up may still be required.

And here is the answer you seek:

They do not connect, the power cells are components related to the cannon for a future model and have been included with that model in mind. Note also that the whole set could be used on a certain famous companies big walking robot with huge cannon model if you were so inclined, use your imagination here. The cannon itself was created for the new printed FOB model being released soon.



Novan Elites Forward Operating Base (FOB) before anyone asks. The cannon is an upgrade for the heavy bunker module.

Remember the big gun I've shared last week? Apparently it was part of some additional 3D printed terrain kits!

The Novan Elites forward operating base (FOB) is a pre-fabricated modular fortification that can be assembled in many configurations. This set contains the components to assembly one configuration “A” structure with two gatehouses and four defence turret mounts. This model should see further modules released to expand on the theme and open up new layout options.

4 x walls with light turret positions

2 x gatehouses

2 x gates

1 x sentry turret sprue

Dimensions: 165mms square, wall height to top of parapet 24mms

Notes:

1) These models have been 3D resin printed and are hollow to reduce weight and material cost, print supports have been removed but some clean up may still be required.
2) Model has been designed to enable magnet use as desired.
3) Various miniatures show for scale purposes only, GW knight shown without permission.

Not sure, this will all kinda depend on the sales. I know this item was a pricy one to produce (original plan was to have it cast in resin, but that was too expensive), so John is sort of waiting to see how these kits will sell before doing further investments in them.

These look quite cool... does Vanguard have plans for releasing STL files, maybe with a KS/Patreon/whatever as Troublemaker Games did with the extra stuff on theirs?

Printing is a hobby unto itself, for me, and I'd much rather pay for the files.

At the moment I really doubt that would happen any time soon. John isn’t too keen on the files just proliferating everywhere once made (semi-)public. For now Vanguard Miniatures will mainly focus on physical models, be it through casting or a Print on Demand like service.

It will save you a TON of cash

And you get to use all those forge world models you could never afford.

my mechanicus force i have would have cost me close to $700 US just to get all the cataphron breachers in normal scale. i got them from vanguard for about $20

It also helps you have multiple rules sets you can use from the original epic, the new apocalypse or as our group does index 8th ed with halved ranges.
