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?

Are those the regular Skinner leaders or the heavily armoured ones?

The regular one - but I'll be honest with you, I'd love some of the heavily armored ones!

I'm not even seeing them on the site at all!
