Never Forget Isstvan!





The Netherlands

Noticed there wasn't a thread for Vanguard Miniatures in the rumour section. They're specialised in 6mm ranges and have taken over the now sadly defunct Troublemaker Games who have done a few amazing crowdfunding projects for their Defeat in Detail range.

But whilst Troublemaker Games are gone, their range isn't. And besides that, it's also expanding.

So keep your eyes on this thread to stay updated on some kick ass 6mm sci fi miniatures.

Upcoming pre-orders:

Cybershadows Jackal Warstalker:
Cybershadows Jackals are found ranging far ahead of heavy mech battle squadrons these “light” mechs are the eyes and ears of the heavier battle units. They are extremely agile for there size and can cover ground at phenomenal speed when necessary. Lightly armed in comparison to the dreadnought or leviathan it none the less has very potent weapons that can easily decimate regular enemy formations.

Operating as lone scouts or in teams of two as long range recon/raider units these machines are not to be underestimated and are considered high priority targets by novan high command.

The other main function of these stalkers is as escorts and flank shields for the cybershadow’s main battle formations for which duty they are aptly suited.

This model comes with the following components:

1 x hull

2 x leg sprues

1 x pistons sprue

1 x heads sprue

1 x weapons set

Spoiler:




Novan Archer Heavy Artillery Gun (Towed):
The mainstay of novan artillery trains the archer is a heavy 155mm calibre cannon capable of utilising several types of munitions. This particular variant utilises the tracked artillery carriage and will be found where battery positions have been established for extended periods of time.

This pack contains 3 x archer artillery cannon.




Novan Bombadier Heavy Mortar (Towed):
The novan Bombadier heavy mortar is a common site with novan shock assault forces and is used in general to soften up an enemy position prior to an assault and is also used extensively during siege operations where whole battalions of these weapons can be found bombarding enemy position’s almost constantly.

This pack contains 3 x bombadiers with shells.



Novan Elite’s Mauler Assault Transport:
Mauler assault tanks are starting to see widespread service with Tusculum Nova’s elite fighting troops. Developed in secrecy and built to the highest specifications this battle winning vehicle stands at the pinnacle of novan armoured fighting vehicle design.

Massively armoured and heavily armed this machine has been created to deliver unscathed novan elite forces directly into the teeth of the enemies defensive line.

This particular variant has two sponson mounted twin anti-tank laser cannon and a roof mounted twin heavy machine gun for clearing the immediate area in front of the assault ramp. If the enemy force’s being engaged are numerous then the machine gun mount is often upgraded with a twin rotary cannon turret which has truly devastating firepower at such close ranges.

This pack contains 2 x Mauler tanks with modelling options.


Spoiler:









Novan Elites Scorpion Light tank (A):
The scorpion light tank type A is a general support tank armed with a rapidfire automatic solid projectile cannon in the main turret mount and two hull mounted heavy machine gun sponsons.

This pack contains three scorpion tanks type A



Novan Elites Scorpion Light Tank (B):
The scorpion type B is a dedicated tank hunter armed with two anti-tank laser cannon in the turret and two additional laser cannon in hull sponson mounts. This configuration makes this vehicle a serious threat to unsuspecting enemy armoured units.



Novan Overlander Armoured Truck:
The Novan Overlander armoured military truck is a versatile and flexible design seen everywhere novan forces are in operation. This particular variant is in use with mechanised infantry formations.

This design is also used extensively as a soft-top general logistics vehicle.

This pack contains 3 x Overlander trucks with modelling options and is fully compatible with components from the overlander tractor.




Novan Overlander Artillery Tractor:
A common variant of the overlander the halftrack artillery tractor and utility vehicle is used to transport both novan heavy artillery forces and there munitions but also as a general rough terrain alternative to the regular truck.

This pack contains 3 x Overlander tractors with modelling options and is fully compatible with components from the overlander truck.



Novan Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV):
The warrior IFV has seen service in every battlezone in which novan forces have campaigned it is a versatile and rugged design with numerous patterns and variants being used across novan controlled space.

This particular variant transports novan armoured infantry formations and allows these troops to keep pace with the many tank formations alongside which they serve. It has seen many different armamants over the years but the most common fitment is a quick cycling pulse laser.

This pack contains 3 warrior IFV’s with modelling and weapon options.

Those look very nice! If those were in 15mm, I would be all over them. Should be very good for not-Epic, though.

A vacuum where wargaming is impossible :C

Huzzah! Now I need to wait for 2-4 years while my friends get themselves out of Student money issues, and then I can get them to buy some SM forces. They like marines.

Some people don't know how to use "There", "Their" and "They're" properly. Here's a helpful video. TLDR; "There" is for direction (The hat is there). "Their" is for possession (It is their ball). "They're" is short for "They are" (They're going to get lunch). I am seeing so many of these errors it is giving me the blood pressure of a 250lb 50 year old with two sick kids. /Public Announcement.

Sprue?

Does that mean plastic?

I know resin also comes on spures...

Sprue is perhaps an odd choice of wording. The kit is made of metal (I do hope that Vanguard will eventually move to resin and/or plastic), but contains parts to turn the ship into one of two possible variants.

There was a question on Tactical command about the plastic sprues that have been in (tortured) development for a while as upgrade components for the plastic Ork Truk have appeared on the Vanguard website and apparently they will be released "anytime now".

Nice almost certainly going for Novans for my chapter now.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.
