If only GW could do for their own IP what several very tiny companies can.

Although, for this exact same reason I am a fan of both Vanguard and Onslaught, because they show more gumption and imagination than the monolithic (in comparison) company that dropped the ball, as "obviously" noone is interested in Epic anymore.

I just wish Vanguard was as easy to get over here in the US. 6mm Horus Heresy in it's modern aesthetic would be beautiful.

@AegisGrimm: Vanguard should indeed figure something out for this. I guess that would work if the demand is high enough. But what is the main problem for getting the models in the US? Is it shipping or tax problems?

@Silent Puffin?: Can't give you an ETA on the plastic models, but for now you could go for combining the anti-aircraft turrets with the flatbed trucks.

Hello vanguard here I do ship to the states regularly and have several US customers if I may ask what specifically puts you off ordering from me please i'd be most interested in knowing.

That's something I think you should bring up with Onslaught Miniatures. You could suggest it to them directly, they've got their own section on the Tactical Command forum, just go here, or directly to the Sisterhood thread.

But regarding different scales, they do have some 15mm scaled Sisters.

Mostly the shipping from anything over the pond makes me make hard choices about buying games from the UK (my small group of people I am able to convince to game requires me to nearly always buy both forces that will hit the table, so I can't go bonkers with gamer ADD)

The preorder stuff really may tempt me enough, because I can always go the old Epic Space Marine trick and get two heresy forces by splitting everything purchased into two small forces. Then I'd just need the Epic ruleset that manages smaller forces the best (I think probably Epic Armageddon versus NetEpic from what I have played of it.)

I really like the looks of the upcoming not-Cataphractii terminators, and the "Gladiator" dreads.

Thanks for the feedback I may look at trying to cut the shipping charge but in most cases the fee is pretty much right in fact in some cases I need to pay more than the amount charged to the customer especially if the parcel is heavy.

Understand your situation regards needing to buy both forces that would get expensive. Still as you say you can split the models into equal forces if needed. I'm useing the elites for heresy armies too hence a lot of the newer designs are inspired by the period. SHT's next in line for creation.

New reinforcements for the Novan Regulars, the Dragon Flame Tank:




Dragon flamethrower tanks are not operated by regular mechanised forces but by specialist engineer units attached to novan battlegroups on an ad hoc basis as the situation dictates.

Yet another variant of the popular warrior chassis the rear hull troop carrying section has been replaced with a massive armoured fuel pod which feeds a high pressure flame projector turret capable of hurling a jet of extremely volatile and highly combustable liquid many metres. Utilised to breach enemy defense zones and stubborn pockets of enemy resistance this terror weapon has been know to cause the enemy to withdraw at the sight of an approaching dragon before it even gets close enough to fire.

An horrific but highly effective weapon system used sparingly but to great effect by novan forces the dragon flame tank is considered by many a distastful but none the less necessary tool.

This pack contains 3 x Dragon tanks each with three variant turret options.

£12.50

Actually the stormer would have been on sale this week but I had a few issues with the casts so they've gone back and the moulds are being redone to hopefully rectify the situation with luck this one will be on sale by the end of the month or early next month at the latest.

Here we have all the new wave 2 models together so you can judge relative sizes we should have better images up once i've had time to take them.

A bunch of new releases!

Novan Elites Guardian Main Battle Tank:

The elites guardian tank is yet another product of Tusculum Nova’s most advanced research and development program to equip it’s elite forces with the most powerful weapons and equipment that can be provided. Guardian’s are intended to act as front line main battle tanks for elite forces a roll originally filled by the older scorpion designs which have now been relegated to a supporting roll for the mechanised squadrons. The hull bears a similar appearance to the mauler assault transport and was developed alongside that vehicle. Although smaller than the mauler it is none the less a very potent design heavily armed and armoured with an impressive turn of speed .

The core weapon system is a remote operated turret mounting a double barrelled railgun fireing either armour piercing or high explosive ammunition at extremely high velocity. The ammunition is stowed in the large automated ammo supply bin at the rear of the gun assembly. This arrangement allows the weapon to be operated by a single crewman.

Two sponson mounting points are also available these can be fitted with several weapon options with either the standard laser cannon or heavy machinegun being the most common choices and there is also a permanant forward hull MG fitted as standard.

In the guardian elite forces have a highly versatile and potent battle tank able to survive in the deadliest of warzones.

This pack contains 3 x guardian main battle tanks.

£12.00

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-guardian-main-battle-tank/

Novan Elites High Command:


Novan elite forces are lead in the field by officers and specialists of great renown.

This set represents a battlegroup commander and his officers and advisors observing the action.

Consists of:

20 x high command figures two of each sculpt.

8 x officers

4 x standard bearers

2 x communications officers

2 x mystics

2 x priests

2 x medics

£7.00

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-high-command/

Novan Elites Sniper Tank Hunter:

The sniper tank hunter is a dedicated anti armour vehicle constructed on a modified and reconfigured guardian hull. It shares many common features and systems of the guardian and was developed to work alongside that tank in mixed battlegroups.

It’s main weapon system is a high powered long range laser cannon fixed in the forward hull position and capable of penetrating the armour of most enemy tanks with easy. Secondary armament consists of two sponson points just like the guardian with the same weapon options and the hull MG as standard.

Most commonly working in teams of three vehicles on dedicated anti armour duties or as single vehicles attached to guardian formations this vehicle has already made it’s mark on the battlefield and gained a fearsome reputation amongst enemy vehicle crews.

This pack contains 3 x sniper tank hunters

£12.00

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-sniper-tank-hunter/

Novan Shielder Anti Aircraft Artillery:

Shielder is tusculum nova’s standard low altitude air defence artillery system it consists of a quad autocannon armament mounted in a fully rotating turret with the ability to shoot a ground level targets as well as enemy aircraft. The system is self contained and has been mounted on numerous ground platforms and vehicles over the years this particular variant uses the static ground mount cruciform commonly seen guarding artillery positions and at military installations across novan space.

3 x shielder air defence guns plus 3 x ammo stacks

£10.85

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-shielder-anti-aircraft-artillery/

Novan Rapier Missile Artillery System:

Rapier is tusculum nova’s most common special ordnance missile artillery system it consists of a fully rotating mount very similar to shielder but in this case has launch rails for four missiles. This system is capable of launching various specialist missiles including medium to high altitude antiaircraft missiles, long range high explosive, anti armour, and scatterable mines to name but a few. This variant utilises the standard static cruciform mount but it can be seen mounted on various static and mobile units where ever novan forces are encountered.

3 x rapier missile platforms

£10.85
