We've passed the £6000 mark!

Hello again Backers,

It has taken a while and much effort from Ben the designer to bring you the latest perk which is now ready for pledges. The Skinnerz heavy artillery set consisting of three different towed ordinance pieces to support your Skinnerz army.

I must thank you all once again for your continued pledges really appreciated people thank you so much.

Should funding allow we hope to create individual limbers for each weapon and if possible a crew set may be added as well.

Having bought some 6mm Novan vehicles, just to see whether they really are that detailed - yes, they are, absolutely brilliant little models.

Also unbelievable service, I let them know about a missing part on Thursday, and it's here already.

They're brilliant aren't they, shocked by how much detail can be fit on such a small scale.

Those Skinnerz heavy artillery look great - din't think there is any comparable proxy for those, or at least not one that looks as good.

£7.5k and onwards!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/small-scale-armies-from-vanguard-miniatures#/updates/19

Hi Backers,

Just a quick post to thank you all for the overwhelming show of support for this campaign, over 300% funded i'm truly stunned especially considering the financial restraints of this time of year.

We are now looking to upgrade the odd set or two with additional minis should funding continue to rise. First up will be a quad bike rider for the urban specialists set, second would be an extra set of arm options for the tainted hierarch figure, this will happen at 8.5k. Also planned will be a crew set for the skinnerz heavy artillery models with perhaps a few detail tweaks here and there as well at 9k. All these will be included with existing pledges.

Should we reach 9.5k of funding I will be offering a set of three or four backers exclusive character figures absolutely free to all supporters of the campaign. Planned are character leaders for the Urban regulars, Tainted Elites and Skinnerz drop troops sets.

It just remains for me to thank you all once again for the fantastic level of support really appreciated people. Here's to the next already at planning stage campaign.

Regards John

Update:
Campaign Over, now the work begins!
Hello Backers!

I'd just like to say thankyou on behalf of John and his sculpting team for the huge support shown for this campaign, over £10k now!

We've elected to use the "InDemand" function on the campaign to keep it open for any last minute top up pledges for the next week.

The current plan is that, due to the unexpectedly huge amount of support shown for the campaign, dispatches will be sent in March rather than the originally planned February.



Thanks everyone,

- Ben, Campaign Manager

It is hard to believe those are 3mm scale!

Have to say seemed like a really nicely run campaign, and good to see it is still open to new pledges for a short while.

Tiny update on the Skinnerz' heavy artillery:

We have been tweaking the heavy artillery limbers, ready use ammo for the cannon, fuel pod for the missile and power cell for the energy weapon.

I've never painted 3mm, so I've just ordered a Novan Elites Tank Maniple to give it a try.

16 tanks for £14 just can't be wrong.
