I have to say, the Eagle is a beautiful miniature, and the quality equals or perhaps surpasses GW depending on taste.

To give you an idea of how big the model is compared to the FW version:

Thanks for the kind words! Lets see if this model will be a success, since it'll mean Vanguard can do more models (and maybe do more stuff in resin as well).

Guys, a quick question: we've had a teeny tiny version of the new Elites Eagle gunship done for starship scale gaming but is it too small next to the fighters. Should we upscale it a bit?

If anything I'd say downscale the fighters to look more like a squad...

I'd agree with Kid Kyoto ideally they should be at the same relative proportions as your 6mm models

Coming soon...

After a bit of a delay I have finally sent the little Felis stealth ship off to the casters, ETA in store would be end of the month with luck.



Updated 6mm winter cavalry prints off to the casters today, estimate end of the month for re-release.



Early 3mm skinners castings have started to arrive, I have been assembling them and figuring out base contents for Dominion, these will all be part of Skinners wave 1 releases.

Nothing planned at the moment, there might be some Novan Regulars stuff appearing eventually through Troublemaker Games.

A new little ship is in the works!
We've been working on something a little bit different, basically experimenting with other shapes for ships whilst maintaining the familiar aesthetic.

This little craft is used by various security forces, pirates, and what not.

The model's current dimensions are 13mm wide, 15mm long, 20mm tall.

We're curious to hear your thoughts about this one.

Thanks in advance!

I had the same thought, it's great to see non linear shapes.

Looks like the Post Dated Check Loan I like it!

I heard through the grapevine that vanguard was working on some 6mm super heavies in the spirit of the Tribune....

You mean the Legate? It's still in the works, can't give you an ETA on when the design is finished, let alone the printing and casting. But it'll come eventually...

@Rabenga: pics will be shared when there's something to show.

@Schoon: we are working on trying to get our own setting more off the ground, thus exploring some different designs and units. However, if we would have to translate it to other gaming systems, I'd guess this craft could fit in various BFG Rogue Trader, Wolfpack, or pirate lists? The craft might also work in some of Firestorm Armada fleets, Full Thrust, or other games.
