A quick heads up - Vanguard have suspended further orders being placed for their cool toys so they can clear their back log. Quite understandable when you consider the current challenges. There is a post on the website if you want to read it, I am merely letting ya know.

Now if they could hurry up with their 3mm scale leviathan stalker and Zeus warships/ Helios battleship ...


Yeah with nothing else to do with my day other than spend money I may have contributed to that backlog a little! Nice to hear that business is booming in any case.

Is there a game system people are using with these apart from various versions of Epic?

Funny enough I asked the community for which other universes they use VGM models. Rather than universes people mentioned various game systems, some that were mentioned:
- Dominion (Vanguard's own game system)
- 40k Apocalypse
- Star Breach
- Horizon Wars
- Polyversal
- BattleTech
- OGRE
- Xenia's Rampant (based on the very fun Dragon Rampant)
- Futurewar Commander
- Rogue Planet


You can also add:

And I've also seen people using them to play mini-Hammer and other mini versions of games that are normally 28mm, think Necromunda, Space Hulk, Gorkamorka, but also Planet 28, Rogue Planet and that kinda stuff.

I am planning to use some of the Strike Legion rules, either Strike Legion Tactical or Strike Legion Planetary Operations.

Also, with the slopping thing jutting out to the front of their helmets and the small backpacks, I think the new Novan Elites might pass as Fallout Brotherhood of Steel. Perhaps Skinnerz as super mutants could make for an interesting game.

Thanks mate! It won't be long. I might do some with a tutorial too, for painting 6mm minis (think so many are put off by the scale, and it's actually so easy to paint them - so will hopefully show that).

Is there any way to know when certain things will be back in stock? Or somewhere else to ask? I'm really after a load of their round bases.

Can't give clear ETA's on the restocks, the whole Covid-19 thing complicates matters. Some of the ships should be back soon. For the longer term there are plans to have all the ships redone in resin, but that will most likely be at the end of the year, but once again...this all determines on how this whole pandemic thing goes on.

A little message from Vanguard Miniatures:

General stock situation

The stock situation is currently in flux, due to the large number of orders received over the last two months demand has outstripped supply. Covid 19 has caused huge delays on both manufacture and resupply and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I do have items trickling in all the time but overall re-stock supply is slow so please be aware of that.

I do have on order around 60 moulds to be run to bring the stock levels back to some semblance of normality but I have no idea when any of these will start arriving so its a waiting game I’m afraid.

Expected in this coming week will be another batch of the very popular Affray set B and a few other Elites sets will be back up amongst others. I also have in now several new release items that will start making an appearance in the coming weeks.

Plastic strips bases are also here and will be back up in store as soon as I can find time to count and bag some.

Finally I’d like to announce a shutdown period that will most likely be at the end of this month nominally for a week. This will mean I will not be accepting or processing new orders during that time. Reasons are many but I need to step back and take a break from processing orders in order to tidy up loose ends, take stock of the business situation and inventory remaining stock amongst other things.

Kind regards John

Looks like they have had a large re-stock of the 'Affray B' squads by the way, for anyone that was after them...

ORDERING DISABLED

As previously notified in my last news message I will not be accepting orders for this week commencing 25/05/20, to that end the ability to order on the website has been disabled. I will obviously process and ship any orders received up to this time as usual, and will notify you all when ordering has been enabled again.

Reasons are many but the need to address loose ends, inventory stock, and generally access the business situation requires me to free up the time necessary to pursue these tasks.

I would like to thank you all for yet another bumper month for orders it is greatly appreciated, stock levels have been hit hard with many items sold out. Re-stocks are still understandable slow but items are trickling in all the time, I will keep you all notified on this, hopefully with many businesses seeing staff returning to work now we will see the supply situation improving.

There will be several new releases lined up for next month including 3mm aircraft, the new Eloi grav-tanks and the long awaited Airborne troops.

Stay safe people regards John

I am glad they are doing well and getting orders.

Those skimmers look great. I could use 3mm ones for Aquanautica Imperialis too...

Lets see if the Eloi will also get a 3mm treatment. Would be cool. As for Aquanautica Imperialis, I would love to develop some Novan aquatic ships...maybe for a separate project or something...

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

A close-up of the relatively new 'Affray B' squads. Very crisply produced, some minor flash to tidy up but very good considering the scale, and no mould lines to correct.

The miniatures on the bottom row were some really nice 'officer' type miniatures (look like an array of melee weapons, and the helms of the miniatures have a crest).
I'm hoping there will be a special characters or heroes release for this 'B' variant at some point?



And them painted up as Pre-Heresy World Eaters

A little update:

Ordering will be reactivated this Wednesday. Anyone browsing the site may have already spotted the new releases, 3mm planes and the first of the new Eloi Federation models plus the airborne demolition drones.The airborne troopers and specialists sets will follow next week.


That being said...

Novan Regulars Airborne – Demolition Drones - £3.00

Novan airborne forces make use of remote controlled demolition drones for attacking hardened targets such as bunkers, they have also been known to be used against armoured vehicles on occasion.

Set contains:

6 x Demolition drones with operators

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-regulars-airborne-demolition-drones/

Eloi Federation – Infantry Detachment - £8.00


The Eloi Federations standard combat troops armed with rail rifles.

Set contains:

2 x Specialists sprues

6 x Troopers sprues

48 figures in total

Figure height: 6.5mm to the eye line

Models painted by Stig Kelly

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/eloi-federation-infantry-detachment/

Eloi Federation – Tempest Grav-tank - £8.00

Tempest grav-tank
The Tempest is the most commonly encountered anti-gravity combat vehicle of the Eloi Federation. A swift and highly manoeuvrable vehicle combining unprecedented mobility with lethal and highly accurate firepower.
Tempests are known to be crewed by two Eloi, a pilot/driver and a weapons operator both of which sit in the small rear compartment. The apparent central cockpit is in fact a highly advanced sensor array, real time data gathering module and terrain following suite linked directly to the crew by a neural linked helmet interface. This gives both crew members unprecedented situational awareness of their surroundings on the battlefield.
Common armaments for the dorsal turret are a high energy long barrelled laser cannon deadly against armoured targets in combination with a tri-barrelled pulse laser providing rapid fire capability against infantry and light vehicle targets, other weapon combinations have also been observed.
The graceful curvature and the thick well slopped composite armour plates of Eloi vehicles provide excellent protection from enemy fire but it is the tanks speed and agility that is considered to be its primary defensive measure.
Set contains:
3 x Tempest grav-tank hulls
3 x Tempest turrets
Model approximate dimensions: L 41mm, W 26mm, H 7.5mm not including turret
Models painted by Stig Kelly

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/eloi-federation-tempest-grav-tank/

Eloi Federation – Zephyr Grav-tank - £8.50

Zephyr recon tank

The Zephyr is an extensively modified version of the Tempest grav-tank created to fulfil a reconnaissance role for Eloi armoured battlegroups. Modifications for this vehicle include further silencing of the already quiet main drive engines and the fitting of a chameleon like cloaking field array to the forward hull sections that when active mimics the appearance and colouring of the surrounding terrain rendering the vehicle extremely hard to see. The rear compartment has been extended backwards allowing room for a small scout team to be embarked as required.

Armaments are usually of the lighter kind than seen on the Tempest as the Zephyrs roll is information gathering and observation of enemy activity ahead of the Eloi advance not combat. But on occasion it has been recorder that Zephyr stealth attack squadrons fitted with heavier firepower have been used to great effect in aggressive hit and run attacks on isolated enemy formations and lightly defended positions.

Set contains:

3 x Zephyr grav-tank hulls

3 x Zephyr turrets

Model approximate dimensions: L 46mm, W 31mm, H 8.5mm not including turret

Models painted by Stig Kelly

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/eloi-federation-zephyr-grav-tank/

8 x Skinners fighters, 2 of each variant

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/3mm-skinners-fighter-squadron/
