Novan Elites aerial reinforcements inbound!!!

Novan Elites Wyvern Light Dropship - £10.00

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-wyvern-light-dropship/

The Wyvern light dropship serves a complementary role to its larger cousin the Eagle as an orbital insertion troop and equipment lander, enabling Novan Elite forces to rapidly establish a deployable beachhead within the chosen target zone. While the Wyvern cannot match the Eagle in total transport capacity, its higher top speed, smaller size and integrated vectored thrusters make the Wyvern perfect for maneuvering in confined landing zones and urban environments. These traits, combined with the Wyvern’s flexible, modular design make them ideal for deploying a variety of small fire teams to key battlefield locations.

Two variants currently serve with the Novan Elites forces:

Wyvern A is a dedicated troop carrier.

Wyvern B replaces the passenger bay in favour of an open cargo bay and attachment claw assemble with magnetic locking points for various cargo modules.



This set contains the parts to make one Wyvern dropship model, either the troop carrier or cargo module hauler variant.

Model approximate dimensions: Length = 50mm, Wingspan = 52mm, Height = 12mm.

Please note that this model can only be built in flight mode and that we will look at the potential for a landed version should demand require it.

Flight stand included.

This is a multi-part resin casting.

Details look good in resin, it certainly bides well for future miniatures. Having resin flying miniatures is easier for stability on flying bases, IMHO.

Update on the Troublemaker Games plastic terrain tiles sets, a re-stock of the Domed Basilica set is expected within days alongside a new Habitorum set. The Gothic Sector set has been delayed due to mould release issues during manufacture but it should not be to much longer before we see those back as well. Once those are available again the new Kickstarter Campaign to expand on these sets further will commence.

Render of the new Habitorum set below.

Do it! Am having great fun at the moment building up a Great Crusade-era force (World Eaters) and their Ork opponents. In between the new Vanguard stuff and other kits you can find on eBay (also, the classic stuff being reasonably priced for the most part 2nd hand) think it's a great time to be getting into it.

Cybershadow Sentinels - £6.50


An elite arm of the Precursors the Cybershadow Sentinels act as guardians at all Cybershadow military and expeditionary installations as well as escorting high ranking Cybershadow personnel in the bodyguard roll. Equipped with the standard Precursor combat armour augmented with the addition of Sentinel shields which not only provides a physical barrier to enemy fire but also generates a personal protective forward projected energy shield. Sentinels can interlock their shields to provide a continuous energy wall against hostile action. Their weapon of choice is the sentinel lightning spear, the lightning spear is an disruptor type energy weapon capable of projecting a lethal burst of high intensity energy at fairly long range that disables vehicle power systems and kills infantry with ease. The spear can be set to a none lethal setting that renders humans unconscious should capture be the desired outcome.

Sentinels are often deployed in a combat formation know as the Phallanx an impenetrable wall of energy shields and deadly spears, supported on both flanks by Precursor detachments this formation has proven a tough nut to crack.

Set contains 40 x Cybershadow Sentinel figures.

2 x Officers

2 x Standard Bearers

New ships inbound!!!

Novan Elites Lynx Class Destroyers - £5.00










Lynx class Destroyers are small and fast craft that are capable of quickly delivering their deadly cargo. For its size the Lynx is heavily armed, making it a jack of all trades. Its basic armament includes two dorsal mounted twin turrets to take out incoming ordnance which can be replaced with planetary bombardment cannon as the mission dictates, and two pairs of prow torpedo tubes. Its broadsides allow for different types of weapon systems which can be changed whilst in dock due to its modular design. Most common broadside configurations are either weapon batteries or launch bays for a small compliment of fighters and assault craft.
Its diverse armament is also its main disadvantage. A lot of space normally used for supplies such as fuel, ammunition, foodstuffs, and oxygen is sacrificed for the Lynx’s many weapon systems. What this means is that the Lynx needs constant resupplying, making it incapable of long independent missions away from sources of supply. Because of this the Lynx is often deployed on short duration missions only, when not operating as part of a larger battle flotilla.

This set contains:
2 x Lynx Destroyer hulls (1 x batteries, 1 x launch bays)
2 x optional wings sets and twin turrets
2 x alternative bombardment turrets

Painted by John Fielding in Ferro Ascendancy colours.
Model length approx. 38mm
Flight base not included

Novan Elites Panthera II Class Heavy Frigate x 2 - £8.50







The Panthera class Heavy Frigate is the workhorse of the Novan Elite fleets. Heavily armed and armoured, its various weapon configurations allow it to fulfil many different void combat roles.
No matter its broadside configuration, the Panthera’s basic armament includes two heavy twin or optionally triple linked dorsal mounted turrets and two pairs of prow torpedo tubes. Its broadsides allow for different types of weapon systems which can be changed whilst in dock due to it’s modular design.

Most commonly used are weapons batteries, more than capable of tearing huge chunks out of enemy vessels many times its own size. Another popular configuration for the Panthera is to fit it with launch bays, allowing the heavy frigate to carry several squadrons of Javelin fighters and Pilum bombers. In order to protect other ships of the fleet from waves of ordnance and enemy fighters the Panthera is sometimes also configured with broadside turret platforms capable of projecting a withering volume of defensive fire.

This set now contains the components necessary to build the Panthera II refit version as an option.

set contents:

2 x Panthera hulls
2 x Wing sets with adaptors (forward and aft)
2 x Twin turret broadsides
2 x Triple turret broadsides
2 x Launch bay broadsides
2 x Gun deck broadsides

Model is 52mm long, bases not included.

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-panthera-ii-class-heavy-frigate-x-2/

Novan Civilian Starships x 16 - £5.50

This set is made up of 8 different ship designs representing various Novan Commonwealth civilian vessels.

Set contains 16 x civilian ships (2 of each design)

Model average length approximately 20mm

Please note that these ships do not come provided with a flight stand or have a pilot hole for one. You will need to drill your own hole wherever appropriate and use a stiff wire support to base your ships on.
