Absolutely love the Nova regulars - nicely detailed and proportioned, think those will look good in Necromundian regiment colours

The army deal constitutes a fairly good saving as well.

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.


That's a common criticism of how Indigogo works unfortunately. I'm not sure of any way around it, unless what you want turns up in a combined pledge (as with the tainted and novan regular army sets for instance).
The creator on another forum said there was some account of this made with the pricing, and it's a way to help fund the sculpts/projects.

Actually always much preferred Squats in 6mm. Thought the scale works much better for their warmachines and big guns.

I would love to see some kind of Colossus (or even a Capital Imperialis), it's nuts how much those go for on ebay when they do occasionally turn up on ebay.

John should perhaps have a chat with Gregster's Lab about stocking their warmachines...

By the way, we're almost at our goal for the crowdfunder...just a bit more and then it's time for stretch goals!

Wasn't there also a small scale Void Game coming, Age of Empires I think?

That might be a natural addition to Vanguard's catalog.

Well, Vanguard has slowly been expanding its ship scale range. More of my escort sized designs have been submitted for printing and casting. Your commission is also slowly getting there. So yeah...that's happening.

By the way, on the crowdfunder front: we're literally £2 short of meeting our initial goal. Come on, don't we all want stretch goals?

Another stretch goal reached
Hello again Backers,

Thanks to a bunch of pledges over night we have hit the next stretch goal sooner than expected.

The skinnerz field gun perk will be released once the set contents have been finalised these models are not quite ready yet I did not anticipate reaching this goal so soon. We will get them up as soon as humanly possible many thanks for your continued support and patience.

I anticipate this perk being available by mid week at the latest once Ben has finished sculpting work.

We are looking at adding more arm choices for the Hierarch figure and a quad rider to the Urban specialists set, to be confirmed.

Another stretch goal...

Gobblers Field Artillery Perk
Hi Backers,

I have now released the latest stretch goal perk this time the Skinnerz Gobblers Light Field Artillery set towed. There is a single and triple set option available.

Thanks again for backing my campaign Regards John


New campaign perk available.
Gobblers Light Field Guns Set
Skinnerz utilise a wide variety of light artillery pieces to support their armies, these are commonly towed by fast tractors enabling them to be rapidly deployed on the battlefield.
Each Gobblers light artillery set contains, 4 x Tractor Vectors, 4 x Field Pieces (1 of each ) and 20 x Gobblers crew figures (2 sets of 10).
Note that there is still some detail work to do on these yet and the rocket model will be a separate item.

Charon Fighter
Backers,

Once again we have hit a stretch goal before it's ready to release, you guys/gals are funding faster than we can finish new perks. Your support has been outstanding thank you all very much.

The Charon fighter stretch goal is now ready for pledges, also note that you can pledge for a mixed squadron deal consisting of four of each Tainted aircraft should you wish.

We do not foresee enough time for further new perks but do intend to create upgrades as it where for existing sets should funding merit it, for example the urban quad bike rider would be added to the urban specialist set and we are looking at more arm options for the Tainted Hierarch figure.

Kind regards John

The fighters are pretty sweet. They have a bit of a Vic Viper vibe to them, which is always a plus.

Are there any pics of the Jackal Stalkers assembled? How big are they? I'm curious how big the 3mm and 6mm versions are.
