Any way we can get a picture of a tank next to a coin or something? I am having trouble visualizing how small these are.

3mm I'm guessing I'd like to see a 3mm 6mm 15mm 28mm of something by a ruler just for fun...

It is an oath we honour.

I would also love to see a scale shot with a 3mm, 6mm, 15mm and 28mm something.

Are those some new guardsmen type units? Would be really cool if there is a classic Cadian type, to go along with some of the other plastics that have been released.

As luck would have it have just painted up some of the 3mm dudes, got a free little sprue of the guys in with a recent order. Hopefully this will give some idea of scale (hint: they are tiny!)

There are some delays in Vanguard's upcoming crowdfunding campaign as you can read here. For the more perceptive ones of you, there is some more new stuff to be found in that link...

Oh, here's a scale shot of a 3mm and 6mm super heavy tank of the same type next to one another:

Thanks for sharing!

So yeah, after a little delay Vanguard Miniatures first official crowdfunder has gone live!

Who Are Vanguard Miniatures?

Vanguard Miniatures is an established wargames company with its own range of metal and resin miniatures, as well as plastic bases.

In order to ensure this campaign runs smoothly, Vanguard are teaming up with collaborators Troublemaker Games to help run this campaign, as having run five successful Indiegogo Crowdfunders they're pretty good at knowing how this button-pushing bippety-boopety computers lark is supposed to work.

What We Need & What You Get

Our 6mm scale models in this funding campaign are intended to reinforce our Defeat In Detail range of models, by adding more models to the existing ranges.

As we cross stretch goals, we'll be unlocking more models, some of which can be seen in silhouette below...

We have many designs already sculpted, and without a crowdfunding campaign it would be another year or even two before we could afford to put them all into production, so your interest and support at this stage means we can put out more metal models at a much faster rate than would otherwise be possible.



The Models

All of the models in this campaign are to be METAL models, unless otherwise stated.

Most of the models have already been Matter Printed and are awaiting a trip to the casting foundry, whilst other models only exist as-yet in CAD form - your support now will ensure they become real tiny toy fighty models!


Can't direct link to the pictures of the campaign itself since IndieGoGo doesn't let me...

Cant give you any specifics on the bulk stuff. I think that's a matter of convincing John of Vanguard Miniatures. Try to reach him on the Tactical Command forum or try it through Vanguard's Facebook page.

As for further updates, I guess more stretch goals will be added depending on the success of the campaign.

Good news, on TacticalCommand John has mentioned he is open to allowing army perks. I assume that'll mean something along the lines of bulk orders.

Good to see that the total is ticking up nicely.

I'm hoping for the 6mm 'basic sci-fi infantry' guys to be revealed at some point, definitely think there is a market there for the non-themed human infantry, the old GW Imperial Guard infantry reach quite ludicrous sums of money on ebay these days!

Some more details on release of certain miniatures at pledge amounts.

Bit of a catch-22 here as I'm sure a load of people will want those Novan regular urban infantry, but it's going to be a struggle reaching that figure (over Xmas especially) without them being on sale!

Yes perhaps some kind of sale at £100 spent might have been an idea.

I've ordered some of the tainted troops which look absolutely brilliant. There are some regular tainted infantry as well which would go well with them. Now just need to try and search down some suitable proxies for daemon-type miniatures!

First up, expect these in the stretch goals of the crowdfunding campaign, which is at 66% at the moment!



And here's something separate from the crowdfunder, a special 3mm deal: http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/3mm-novan-elites-army-deal-1/



The deal is £68, bought separately the units would cost you £80, saving you £12!

Absolutely love the new Guardsmen, have been waiting for the reveal for these!

I will be extremely disappointed if we do not reach the pledge total for those

Out of interest, do you know if the riders for the quad bikes come as a separate sprue?

Pacific Microworld Games is your best bet on Daemon proxies as well as the Hellborn from Onslaught miniatures.

I backed for some of those Sparta APCs. I gotta say I'm not a fan of the way IndieGoGo charges you shipping on every single thing. It's a shame this wasn't on Kickstarter, at least it's easier to manage your pledge over there (and easily pledge for multiple items). As it is I kinda want some of those ork stormboys, but I don't really want to pay double shipping for it. I'd be better off waiting for the campaign to end and throwing them onto a bulk order later.
