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?

there's also some rule (old now) for "pocket 40k".

haven't done a whole lot of research for this but it was a thing.  basically 6mm scale models played with standard 40k rules.

google should get you there, but this one's a good starter...

Nothing planned for the near future. Plastic is a big investment, so don't expect plastic Novan Elites anytime soon. sad.png

However, perhaps they'll change their minds, depending on the sales of course. smile.png

I own some of these and can truthfully endorse that they're everything I hoped they'd be.

Little announcement from Vanguard Miniatures:

Design work finished on the first of a new faction for Defeat in Detail. This faction will be called "The Tainted" and will consist of renegade and traitor forces from existing DiD ranges.

First up will be these tainted novan regulars which will see release in a few months time.

I'm sorry, I must have been looking in the wrong category? There appear to be multiple sellers on this site and some of them are way over-priced by the actual DiD miniatures seem much more reasonable.

1% of people know that answer to, "What's the F.T.W. stand for?" You're not one of them.
8% of teenagers dont listen to rap and 2% havnt tried pot OR drinking... and an even smaller percentage of people actually feel the need to bolster their own self-esteem by putting a spin on being rhythmicly challenged and having no social life.
100% of your base are belong to us.
50% of marines apparently get lost in the warp. If only the guy who came up with that plot had gotten lost in the warp first.

Gregster's Lab and Onslaught are rather pricey compared to the items you showcase in this thread, but I didn't realize they were like separate from the actual DiD selection when I was searching through the whole store.

I don't want to start everyone begging and wish-listing again, but can you share with us any info or what exactly you will be producing in 15mm... as I could really see myself using 15mm models to do a 30k or 40k version of Flames of War, it's something I've been thinking about forever, but I don't want to buy a bunch of infantry to find that's all you're ever going to make.

Vanguard is part of a community that hubs out of TacComms. You're likely to get more response lobbying over there.

Eddie is correct here. smile.png

But you can share your ideas here as well, I can pass them on to John (the guy running Vanguard Miniatures) for you. smile.png

In the meantime, to give you a sense of scale regarding the 15mm models, here they are next to some FoW models:

Sorry. Like I said, I'm not trying to influence him one way or another. Just asking what else will be made in that scale.

They are an excellent match in size though.

Well there are more plans to expand Vanguard Miniatures' (or VGM for short) 15mm range. The Skinnerz have just gotten a new unit.

We are thinking about doing a 15mm version of the Centurion Main Battle Tank, but I can't give you an ETA on that one.

What units would you like to see?

I am most interested in the Elites. The Seige Armor and some of their armored fighting vehicles.

Thanks for the likes guys, hopefully that'll translate in some orders which will allow Vanguard to expand their 28mm range.

Also, to give you a sense of scale. Here's a Tainted Regular next to a Tech Marine:
