I like Vic's miniatures, but I will say the not-Chimaera is a big miss for me. As mentioned by some others above, it's actually too similar to warrant that big of a price tag. Personal opinion, but that's a definite pass.

The tank is growing on me however. Here in Japan chimeras are actually more expensive then Vics, and I like her version just as much.

It looks to me to be mostly based on a panzerfaust 150 or 250 (the final models) with a bit of moderness thrown into the launcher. A panzerfaust 500 perhaps?

I would love a PIAT though- as far as I know, nobody makes a PIAT-style weapon for 28mm conversions. I'd probably field it as a meltagun for IG though, PIATs did not have a good range.


PIAT does have quite an unusual projectile movement patterns. not sure if it is a spring loaded AT weapon and how does it works?

It's a shaped charge fired off a big spring. Because of how the charge works it doesn't really matter how fast it goes. Possibly the simplest launching mechanism after the atlatl.

Not specifically for conversions, but here's a PIAT team for bolt action: might be easy to convert, might not.

Over this past weekend at Origins Game Fair, the Reaper Miniatures booth not only had the Sledgehammer from their previous Kickstarter, they also had the majority of the Victoria Miniatures line in retail packaging. I ended up picking up the Taurox suspension conversion, but most of the regiments and conversion packs were available.

One of the workers indicated that they were getting spooled up to sell through Reaper's online store, and the prices at the con mostly seemed slightly lower than the normal pricing for US customers. Overall, this seems like a great thing for those of us in the US.

Pardon me for engaging in a spot of rumour control, people, but I think some clarity might be in order:

In spite of what anyone may have heard, Reaper Miniatures does not currently have an arrangement to offer Victoria Miniatures' products through any of their retail outlets. The Victoria Miniatures stock that Reaper were selling was some of our leftover stock from U.S. convention appearances.

(The Sledgehammer is a joint production between Victoria Miniatures and Reaper, and is thus an exception.)

Reaper and Victoria Miniatures have a long and mutually beneficial business relationship, but there are no current plans for that relationship to extend to selling one another's miniatures. We have discussed such possibilities with Reaper, but there are no plans in place at this time. I suspect the Reaper employee Zefig spoke to may have misinterpreted the results of those discussions, but I won't go putting words in anyone's mouth. Mistakes happen!

Hope you're enjoying the suspension kit, Zefig!

Greetings all, Servitor Martin here again...

Thought I'd share with you a WIP shot of this chap that Victoria Miniatures will have in production in a few months from now. But—! He is a hero without a name, and Victoria is looking to the gaming community to rectify that.

Colonel Caius Mustard. As in the case of: the bodies of multiple heretics were found in the broom closet, slashed to bits and full of pellets: It was Colonel Mustard in the study with the shotgun and combat blade.
In all seriousness I think maybe a Major or Staff /Gunnery/Master/Colour Sergeant (looks a bit too grizzled for a newly commissioned lieutenant unless he was a veteran when he brought it)
Perhaps:
Major Auralian 'Fennec' Timmount, a grizzled battalion commander; famous for promoting greater levels of initiative and tactical thinking among his troops, and his skillful use of forceful reconnaissance with mixed heavy and light forces; has more than a few years and wounds on him. There is more than a few white hairs in this old war hound's coat and he's starting to feel those old injuries again, especially on cold mornings... But that is burnt away by the heat of battle which he throws himself into with a young man's enthusiasm, because who wants to live forever anyway?
He is often seen departing his command vehicle to storm enemy positions alongside his troops.

Awesome looking IFV, I like the turret options as the cast valentine style sporting the (dragon multi-laser?) is more like the Matilda Boss and the crusader (bolter) style looks like it will go well with the Fury to keep a consistent theme.

If you were ever to make somthing comparable to say a Macharus or baneblade, would you consider Churchillian rounded track guards? That would look mint.

Haven't been keeping up hence the post some pages late.

Yup... In fact i think this offer has already started! I made an order there about 2 weeks ago in excess of £100 and recieved 2 free female artillery officers... They kept appearing in my basket at the checkout (for zero £££) and i wasn't gonna argue...

Glad you got the Arty Officers, Viking! But just to clarify: The BFG Artillery Officer is not the first Miniature of the Month. We were 'live testing' the Miniature of the Month in the online store when you placed your order, and thus, you scored a couple of Officers! Nice work!

Each month, Victoria Miniatures will release a brand new miniature as a part of this deal. First cab off the rank is actually two miniatures — The Svargan Missile Launcher Team:



Remember, you must place your order during the month of August to qualify for your free Miniature of the Month.

Will the free minis be released as a regularly available item, posibly at a later date, or are they going to be limited editions? Or is it posibly going to be a mix with ones like the missile team being a regular item and something like a special character being limited?

The plan at this stage is to release each Mini of the Month as a part of the regular range, but the exact timing is undetermined. You could see it available to purchase in the following month, or it might be much further into the future. Supply and demand will probably define the timing.

Sounds good! I have to plan way in advance and I’d hate to miss out on something basic like a missile team just because I couldn’t afford it this month.

Greetings once more, everyone. Here's a couple of things we're doing at Victoria Miniatures you might not have known about...

MATILDA BOSS TURRET - NOW AVAILABLE SEPARATELY

We now offer the turret and weapons from the Matilda 'Boss' tank as a stand-alone item. This allows you to switch your Matilda between 'Boss' and 'Fury' versions, or, the turret is compatible with another, more common tank often seen on 40K battlefields.




And now for something a little different; Victoria's let me play with some torsos, legs, and other parts to see what variations of troops we can come up with. Here's my first endeavour — the Kintyre III 27th Imperial Regiment of Foot.



They combine Victorian Pith Helmet Heads, Universal Arms, Pouches and Backpacks with Trenchcoat Torsos and Kilted Legs. (One of these laddies has a Winter Torso, as part of this experiment.) There's also one figure sporting a Balmoral Cap Head, and he looks braw!

They're led by a Law Chieftain (Captain) who combines a Ranger Torso with a pair of arms from the Sword and Las pistol Arms set. I chose the Svargan Rifle purely because I really like the look and 'heft' of this longarm.

So — Now comes the question — would YOU like to see the Kintyre 27th added to the range? Maybe as a limited edition Squad set?

I have received quite a few emails from some of you, advocating the virtues of Scottish-themed figures, so now's the time to let your opinions be known. What do we think?
