Wow that sucks, hopefully with the recaster being in Germany there will actually be some way to stop them.

In the meantime I will probably snag some models I have been eyeing for some time!

Whatever happened to the bulwark assault craft? That big beasty was on my 'need' list!

I've forwarded your question regarding the Bulwark to VGM, I hope to have a response for you ASAP.

Thanks Malika! It's a fairly old model so i just figured it was either discontinued or in need of a new mold but it would be nice to know where it got to. Love your fanblog btw, all those pictures are what convinced me I needed to take up 6mm miniatures..

As far as I can tell from the Facebook discussion, the arrogance of that re-caster is impressive.

Anyway, the recaster drama coupled with the latest wave of very desirable terrain pieces and aircraft has made a 6mm project from Vanguard my number one priority.

John got back to me regarding the Bulwark. It has been removed from the site since it didn't fit anymore with the newer Elites flyers, also the quality of the model is inferior to the newer stuff (due it the master being based on a Shapeways print). If you really want a model, you could best contact John through the email address on the Vanguard website.

Understandable, the new stuff certainly looks much better in terms of quality, I'd love to see a Vanguard take on a TH transporter one day though, bet they could make an awesome looking model.

The new transports look perfect, I was sad that there was no sale on around black friday but hopefully Christmas will be kind and I can make a nice big order of stuff in the new year...

Agreed, I feel VGM could make a lot of money if they'd played into the Black Friday hype. Oh well...

As for a lander that carries vehicles, that would be a very cool addition!

I think I need some OrksSkinnerz from Vanguard soon - but annoyingly enough the 'Skinnerz Infantry Leaders' look to be Out of Stock...

Any idea on how often Vanguard re-stocks 'out of stock' stuff?

Skinners Leaders In Heavy Armour - £6.00



The Skinners are great innovators and adaptors of technology and the heavy armour worn by many of their leaders are a testament to that ability.

This hybrid armour in combination with the Skinners robust physiology made them formidable opponents.

Set contains 24 x Skinners Heavy Armour figures.

16 x Leaders

4 x Bosses

2 x Engineers

1 x Standard Bearer

1 x Medic

Novan naval reinforcements inbound!

Novan Raider Class Brigs - £3.00





The Raider class Brig is somewhat of an oddity, too big to be considered an attack craft but also too small to be considered a true warship it occupies a unique position within the Novan navy. It serves in several civil as well as combat rolls including system patrol and policing and as a strike craft for the various fleets.

Small, agile, and fast the Raider class makes an effective weapons platform, basically a reactor housing, engines, and a bridge it is relatively cheap to manufacture and has been produced in large numbers. The Raider is however not jump capable and must be transported to the combat zone via an especially adapted and configured transport carrier which serves as mothership for the squadron. Armaments on the naval version include two torpedo batteries, a port and starboard mounted triple laser cannon turret and a ventral mounted twin laser cannon turret with a 360 degree field of fire.

Set contains:

4 x Raider Brig hulls

4 x Raider parts sprues (turrets and flight base adaptor)

Model dimensions: height 20mm, length 15mm, width 12mm including turrets.

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-raider-class-brigs/

Novan Elites Eagle Dropships - £2.50
