I think I'm actually going to use a Battlegroup Kursk mod believe it or not.

Shouldn't be too hard to adapt.


I would be very interested to see how that works out!

Never Forget Isstvan!

I have received a few advanced sets of port wings for the little stealth ship, so I will be able to release that model very soon now. More wings have already been cast and will be with me ASAP. The ship should be up in store by weeks end in limited numbers.

As an aside would there be any interest in a short limited campaign to get the other Elites vessels produced, currently we have an upgrade set for the Panthera, another frigate, 3 destroyers, little civilian system ships and re-worked Elites fighter ordinance pieces, all would be in metal.

Thoughts please.

Thanks for the heads up, order placed!

I am surprised that you didn't get more responses to the post about the other ships.

The stealth ship looks great. However, I'll wait for the next resin ships from Battlegroup Helios or Kid Kyoto.

I'm a bit surprised as well. There have been some positive responses over at the post on Battlegroup Helios' Facebook page.

The new ships are all metal? Were they designed by Battlegroup Helios? I was hoping they would have more resin releases soon. :(

Battlegroup Helios got taken over by Vanguard Miniatures and they've put all their ships stuff under the banner of Battlegroup Helios. So I'd guess if Vanguard is releasing ships, you could say they are Battlegroup Helios.

If you're referring to the Helian ships, no clue when new ones will be done.

Love the ammo crates - see those being really cool for dioramas, objective markers and the like.

Thinking of a cool little diorama with a Fire Raptor gunship in a landing bay and the artillery loader marines and some other guys preparing the aircraft

Totally forgot to post that I got my Stealth Ships, only took like a week to go around the world. Excellent models, I didn't appreciate just how small they actually are and its stunning the amount of detail on them. Top notch casts as well, only a tiny mould line and no flash to be seen.

There are currently three other ships at the head of the que but I fear my painting will prove a disappointment to you! Will grab some pics of them though.

Feedback needed!


Hi people I'm looking for some feedback, I have in now masters of the little civilian ships which are currently cast on to sprues as seen in the first picture of the original prints, obviously they do not come with stands as I was anticipating that people would want to drill them and mount them on wire.

It occurs to me now that customers may prefer cast on stands to save a lot of labour and so I'm looking at detaching them from the sprues and casting on the flight stand show in the second picture. This stand will fit standard epic bases with the 6mm recess.

The other option is to provide these bases loose and you drill and pin them to the models yourself, what would be the preferred option please. Models are around 20mm long.

Earlobe deep in doo doo

I'm divided I now use DZC widgets as I hate basing metal space ships so cast on bases while really irritating for me might be a better idea. Alternatively holes of the type to insert a standard flight base in is the best solution.

These look good, basing space ships has always been a pain - the amuunt of differrent ones i have and things that have snapped off.....

Agreed on both counts, lovely ships, no stands please. If these scale to the same size as the stealth ship could they not just have the hole like they do?

These are a bit smaller than the Stealth Ship, to give you a sense of scale:

I should have realised that looking at the grid the casts are on, I mean its not too hard to see! So they are all about 20-25mm? With that size I am not bothered about based/unbased/hole as I will probably build a collar for a magnet to sit in.

Any idea of how many in a pack and price point?

Those are nice ships! I mount smaller things on wire, but metal does make that harder.

At the least a hole to start the drill on is appreciated.
