These are beyond amazing. Spending the equal of $50 and having a ton of great looking littler than normal dudes that look great. Now the only thing I can't imagine is adapting these guys to my favorite tabletop strategy boardgame.... Does anyone have any initial ideas?

You've presumably not heard of Epic, then?

A bunch of new releases!

Novan Elites Guardian Main Battle Tank:
15094399_1525035897510371_72968606792993

The elites guardian tank is yet another product of Tusculum Nova’s most advanced research and development program to equip it’s elite forces with the most powerful weapons and equipment that can be provided. Guardian’s are intended to act as front line main battle tanks for elite forces a roll originally filled by the older scorpion designs which have now been relegated to a supporting roll for the mechanised squadrons. The hull bears a similar appearance to the mauler assault transport and was developed alongside that vehicle. Although smaller than the mauler it is none the less a very potent design heavily armed and armoured with an impressive turn of speed .

The core weapon system is a remote operated turret mounting a double barrelled railgun fireing either armour piercing or high explosive ammunition at extremely high velocity. The ammunition is stowed in the large automated ammo supply bin at the rear of the gun assembly. This arrangement allows the weapon to be operated by a single crewman.

Two sponson mounting points are also available these can be fitted with several weapon options with either the standard laser cannon or heavy machinegun being the most common choices and there is also a permanant forward hull MG fitted as standard.

In the guardian elite forces have a highly versatile and potent battle tank able to survive in the deadliest of warzones.

This pack contains 3 x guardian main battle tanks.

£12.00

http://vanguardminia...in-battle-tank/

Novan Elites High Command:

15095592_1525036067510354_29882429453099

The sniper tank hunter is a dedicated anti armour vehicle constructed on a modified and reconfigured guardian hull. It shares many common features and systems of the guardian and was developed to work alongside that tank in mixed battlegroups.

It’s main weapon system is a high powered long range laser cannon fixed in the forward hull position and capable of penetrating the armour of most enemy tanks with easy. Secondary armament consists of two sponson points just like the guardian with the same weapon options and the hull MG as standard.

Most commonly working in teams of three vehicles on dedicated anti armour duties or as single vehicles attached to guardian formations this vehicle has already made it’s mark on the battlefield and gained a fearsome reputation amongst enemy vehicle crews.

This pack contains 3 x sniper tank hunters

£12.00

Novan Shielder Anti Aircraft Artillery:
15110281_1525036157510345_71650473108287

Rapier is tusculum nova’s most common special ordnance missile artillery system it consists of a fully rotating mount very similar to shielder but in this case has launch rails for four missiles. This system is capable of launching various specialist missiles including medium to high altitude antiaircraft missiles, long range high explosive, anti armour, and scatterable mines to name but a few.

This will probably be the last release Vanguard Miniatures will be doing in 2016. Expect tons of new crazy stuff in 2017.

The Stormer is the largest combat vehicle currently in operation with novan elite forces. Designed to carry novan elite siege armoured troops right up to the walls of enemy fortifications unscathed this incredibly tough fighting machine has aided in the fall of many an impregnable fortress. Massively armoured and heavily shielded this vehicle can absorb an incredible amount of punishment on it’s approach.

Armed with a breaching microwave battery to it’s front boardering the assault ramp it also has several sponson locations for self defense and a upper hull mounted rocket mortar positioned to bombard the defenders on the walls, alternatively some will carry rotary cannon mounts instead.

This set contains 1 x stormer hull with separate assault ramp and 1 x stormer weapons sprue.

Image of the actual model will appear ASAP.

£16.00

New prints for the elites again, two on foot assault sprues one with pistols and swords and one with double pistols.


They will be released as normal as i'm attempting to have monthly releases instead of large batches now and then.

These guys may well be out late next month.

Can we buy just the pistol/sword combo? Or is it some pistol/sword AND some pistol/pistol?

Not fully sure yet, this is what John (the guy behind Vanguard Miniatures) had to say about it:

There can be three pack types here:

1. 40 x sword and pistol
2. 40 x double pistol
3. 20 x sword and pistol, 20 x double pistol

So you will be able to buy any of these three pack types I should think they will allbe the same price.

A little message from Vanguard Miniatures:

Winter troops news, as everyone knows there is an issue with these figures ankles being weak so some breakages can occur at the moment i'm adding an extra sprue to each infantry pack to help cover this issue.

So anyway i've been working with ben to re-work the figures to resolve this issue here we have in ben's own words and explanation of the changes and an image to compare.

We've kept the original aesthetic as far as practical so the old and new figures should mix together no problem.

Changes include:

Proper hands instead of blocks.
More form-fitting coats instead of "bell shaped" coats.
Minor mod to the rifle.
Pose changes to be more dynamic (old figures all stood pretty straight up, these are now hunching forwards a bit.
Minor detail realignments (shoulderpads, head tilts, etc).

Overall they're pretty much the same as the long-established popular Winter Infantry sculpts, just a bit better quality, and obviously with the weak ankles dealt with. Not a huge update, but a needed one.

Two more tiny updates from Vanguard Miniatures:

New version of the Kakapo arrived today we have increased the thickness of the tail booms and extended the horizontal stabilsers forward which seems to have sorted the weak tail fins issue. Next model to re-work will be the Moa, already updated, just awaiting printing.

Good news from Vanguard Miniatures for those who want to play around with their possible Predator proxies:

The Scorpion Tanks can now be purchased as a pack of just four hulls and all turret variants are now available individually this will allow you to purchase a squadron of four tanks with just the weapon combinations you need so kind of a modular build your own tank squadron approach. The two original three tank packs are still available but I think this new approach is more flexible and hopefully will prove a popular choice for customers.


Scorpion Tank Hulls x 4

Scorpion Tank Assault Cannon turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Autocannon Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Heavy Flamethrower Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Heavy Matter Conversion Cannon x 1

Scorpion Tank Microwave Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Plasma Cannon Turret x 1

Scorpion Tank Twin Laser Cannon Turret x 1

On another note, remember the mentioned weapon loudouts for the Mauler? Here are some more pics:

Darn it they are releasing on foot sword and pistol dudes? I just spent ages hacking up and trying to modify my forefront platoon to get rid of their jet pack! 
 

I used the vanguard minis for my Pocket40k army, so far they've mostly impressed me. Couple of miscasts here and there (missed shoulder pads or cutting off the end of a weapon) but overall I think they're great little models.

The Novan Elites Frigate (three types of broadside weapon configurations) has been printed and is off to get cast. Expect it to be released around April this year.
