Need to fatten it up first I guess, these will look great with Vic's Matilda tank. I imagine a similar price point too. I guess middle would mean July, so as long as no new awsome kits come out before then I should be able to triple down on the Roos.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
As far as the <> turret shape it's very Cruiser tankesque. I haven't bothered to see if any other country had a similar design but it just screams British Empire to me. I imagine it will have a good range of weapon options. I imagine we will see more of the options in the build blog.

Well color me wrong about seeing options. I wonder how far out the other vehicle they talked about doing is.

Adepticon mini has been unveiled!

Greetings,
I'm thrilled to announce the 2019 Adepticon Limited Edition Miniature; Svargan Aerospace Pilot Kat Lidyanova. Thanks to the Adepticon organizers, I am able to offer Victoria Miniatures online customers the opportunity to purchase this Limited Edition miniature

Only 200 resin casts exist, 100 for Adepticon attendees and, 100 for Victoria Miniatures online customers. The sale will go live on Saturday April 13 at 8pm (UTC). That translates to the following times. (check your time zone if in doubt.)

Chicago: Saturday, 13 April 2018 at 3:00:00 pm (CDT)
London: Saturday, 13 April 2018 at 9:00:00 pm (BST)
Sydney: Sunday, 14 April 2018 at 6:00:00 am (AEST)

She is likely to sell quickly, so get in early. Another notification email will be sent to subscribers of this list when the sale begins.
Cheers, V


Good thing it's my day off then, may have to get one, though I am worried she may look stubby next to the two pilots from Bombshell Games.

Can't say I care for Victoria Lamb's models, but that female commissar by Patrick Keith is quite good; I much prefer it to the one GW released this year.

Well, according to my emails, it went up 24 hrs early, and I am very glad I didn't miss out because of that! I was travelling and unable to purchase.

From the latest newsletter:

Now for something special,
For some time I have been working with the talented Jake Schneider to create a new vehicle for Victoria Miniatures. I am thrilled to show the first pics of the 'Kangaroo APC'. This all resin model will be available from Victoria Miniatures in mid 2019.
The model you see here is painted by the amazing James Wappel. If you want a closer look, he will be posting a full painting tutorial on his Blog this week.
I will also have this model on display at the Victoria Miniatures Booth at Adepticon 2019, with a huge collection of painted squads.
Best, V


Hard to believe we are creeping up on mid 2019. Looking forward to news at some point.
If Vic or Jake are taking requests there is a new hover tank that needs a "Slammed" nose downgrade.

Just seen this on the shop, new miniature of the month. A female Psyker/Astropath. I can really see the chain of command coming together.

Not entirely sure about the human bomb's face, but it's certainly something my Arbites could use.

Counts as cyclops?

Clearly the deformed face is the reason he was sent to a penal legion...


I think I'll put 2 or 3 of these guys on a 40mm base to represent a cyclops.

He probably looks that way because of the cranial implant he is sporting.

That's the detonator.

he dives head first to set the bomb off.
The thing in his hand is a compass so he doesn't get lost.

I imagine the Imperium spins it as a great honor.

"Despite your crimes you are worth to serve as the Emperor's tool against the Xeno hoards!"

In RT there was a chance the bomb would be dud, which was deliberately built in and indicated the prisoner was forgiven by the Emperor.

Victoria's still hitting all cylenders… Might be time for another order...



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Gotta admit suicide bomber caught me unawares, I can see the guard using this quite a bit. Strapping a bomb to yourself can be a great force multiplier in the absence of sufficient ordinance...

On the subject of ordinance that's a nice heavy mortar, which sorta puts a frag in in the works because I just got a battery of 3 Victoria's heavy trench mortars for that role(I'ma make some Griffons). Well as I think Napoleon said: an army can never have too many guns...
