Is the plastic chimera equivalent ifv likely to make it into metal for the 6mm line? I'm blazing through getting tank and infantry companies painted up and now thinking about going mechanized!

There aren't any current plans to make that one in metal. A smaller version of the Warrior IFV is in the works though, that one could be used as a Chimera proxy in 6mm I'd guess.

Are there any pics of those buildings next to GW's Adeptus titanicus terrain?  If they are similar scale, those would really add some variety to a board.

I don't know if there are comparison pics existing.

The other terrain sets indicate "Tiles are all 50mm squares" (e.g. https://vanguardmini...r-building-set/). So I guess, these are also 50mm.

In comparison the civitas imperialis components are respectively:

  • 29x29mm for the single floor/roof component,
  • 29x16mm for the small wall component,
  • 29x30mm for the intermediate component, and
  • 29x43mm for the tall one.

My guess is they should work relatively nicely together. Curious to see how they compare.

I have received a few advanced sets of port wings for the little stealth ship, so I will be able to release that model very soon now. More wings have already been cast and will be with me ASAP. The ship should be up in store by weeks end in limited numbers.

As an aside would there be any interest in a short limited campaign to get the other Elites vessels produced, currently we have an upgrade set for the Panthera, another frigate, 3 destroyers, little civilian system ships and re-worked Elites fighter ordinance pieces, all would be in metal.

Thoughts please.

Cor, awesome! I love street furniture like this. Any chance of some things like sci-fi skips – or perhaps some casualties and rubble to scatter about terrain bases?

There are more plans for 6mm scaled grimdark street furniture designs. I've just submitted some shipping container designs for Vanguard Miniatures, dunno how long it'll take them to release them.

Feedback needed!

Hi people I'm looking for some feedback, I have in now masters of the little civilian ships which are currently cast on to sprues as seen in the first picture of the original prints, obviously they do not come with stands as I was anticipating that people would want to drill them and mount them on wire.

It occurs to me now that customers may prefer cast on stands to save a lot of labour and so I'm looking at detaching them from the sprues and casting on the flight stand show in the second picture. This stand will fit standard epic bases with the 6mm recess.

The other option is to provide these bases loose and you drill and pin them to the models yourself, what would be the preferred option please. Models are around 20mm long.

Speaking for myself only, I would rather go with ships and bases separate so as to have the option to base them differently if I so wish.

A poll might be a good idea.

I especially like the cybershadow command figures. They might look particularly good on the back of a Sector Mechanicus spider-skull to emulate the artwork by John Blanche of red robed cyborgs riding giant spider-skulls.

More Cybershadows reinforcements!

Cybershadow Skitter Main Battle Tank - £8.00
fLMmenM.jpg7SsQkdz.jpg
rlz6Vba.jpg

The Cybershadow designation for this tank is unknown and we offer here the term most commonly used by our troops, that of “skitter” due to the way the tank seems to skitter across the battlefield. Skitters are a common sight seen most often in support of Cybershadow infantry formations as well as in the main battle tank role. Many weapons systems have been observed fitted to these tanks and they often function in mixed groupings with more specialised weapons mixed in amongst the common types. Despite there ungainly appearance these machines can turn a surprising amount of speed gliding across rough terrain in no time and seem to be protected by more than just armour. These machines are more than a match for our Centurion tanks as should not be underestimated.

Often encountered on garrison duties protecting Cybershadow military and industrial facilities they have become a familiar sight to our front line troops.

Set contains two Cybershadow main battle tanks consisting of the follow components:

2 x upper hulls
2 x lower hulls
12 x legs (3 variants)
4 x hatches 2 closed, 2 open
2 x weapons sprues

https://vanguardmini...in-battle-tank/

Cybershadow Master of Interactions Command Node - £6.00
5NcvrN8.jpg
yLs3V6L.jpg
P5freoj.jpg

Master of Interactions is a common term used to describe Cybershadow battlefield commanders, the actual ranking designations and how they interact within Cybershadow military circles are unknown outside the Cybershadow Technocracy but the term seems to refer to many and varied levels of commanders when seen from outside observation.

The highest ranking MoI’s are often seen interfaced with an advanced cybernetic combat rig that enhances their overall command and combat abilities by a very high degree. It is known the combat rig incorporates both short and long range communications networks allowing for a high degree of command and control and also provides the user and those in close proximity to them with energy shield protection from enemy fire. Heavy weaponry is often incorporated into the rig making them a very dangerous adversary even at long range. Needless to say these individuals should not be underestimated and should be considered priority targets for head hunter cadres.

Set contains the following:

2 x Battle commanders (MoI)
1 x Command node (sub commanders) sprue
1 x Labour drone sprue
2 x Combat drone (HMG) sprues

27 figures in total.

https://vanguardmini...s-command-node/

Cybershadow Combat Drones (HMG’s) - £5.50
R63x2tK.jpg?1

Guardian combat drones armed with HMG’s, they function as bodyguards for high ranking Cybershadow commanders as well as acting in the front line fire support role.

Set contains 30 x cybershadow combat drones with heavy machine guns in 5 poses.

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

BgMIRzX.jpg?1
a5opVBy.jpg
AVCQSry.jpg
C0xt40V.jpg
MPrnO4E.jpg
lGvP4xT.jpg

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://vanguardmini...vy-frigate-x-2/

Novan Civilian Starships x 16 - £5.50
pBPaLvB.jpg?1

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.
