BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

Some of you might have already read about this on Facebook or the Tactical Command forums, but here we go:
 

News.

The small but beautiful range of gothic starships from the battlegroup helios range formerly available from our friends down south have been purchased by vanguard miniatures and will be in store very soon. The models will remain under the battlegroup helios label and all the other ships from vanguard will port over to this label as well and I hope to continue to expand both the hellian fleet and the other faction fleets over time.

I must thank Aaron and Zac for the opportunity to own these wonderful ships appreciated guys, and i'd like to wish them all the best in their future endeavours.


Statement from Aaron and Zac from Battlegroup Helios:

Hey folks,
As you've probably noticed it's been quiet around here lately. Both Zac and I have seen our lives get busier over the last year and it's left us with dramatically less time to devote to BGH. The result is the development of the Terrans have stalled and restocking has been intermittent. That's not really fair to all of you who've supported us and so we've decided that it was time for us to pass the BGH torch. For the past month we've been working with John at Vanguard and starting today, Battlegroup Helios will become part of the Vanguard Miniatures family. We trust you'll give him the same support you've give us. Check them out at http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/
Thanks and see you among the stars!
Aaron and Zac

The relative darkness of the helmet plumes, that's going to be reflected in the as produced models, right? msn-wink.gif

I've got the dreadnought - really good cast, imo. Barely any flash line at all. If anyone is looking for alternative BFG ships, these are not a bad shout. :tu:

Well, Vanguard Miniatures did post something on their Facebook:

A personal project of mine that ended up becoming a whole new line due for release in about a month's time. Defeat in Detail in 3mm scale for playing truly epic battles during the many internal wars within the Novan Hegemony itself.

The Cybershadows will be joining the fray in the form of their mighty War Stalker battle groups either allied to support your House or your enemies or both.

Novan Regulars are already under development and will join in the conflict once their transport ships arrive.

Below are samples of all Novan Elite vehicles currently under production and a sneak peak at the prototype Dreadnought Stalker.

A little update from Troublemaker Games:

In some non-Crowdfunder related news ( https://igg.me/at/smallscale-terrain - pledge early, pledge often!), we're pleased to announce that Troublemaker Games will soon be releasing plastic "flying stands" for wargaming, through our retail trading partner Vanguard Miniatures.

The bases :

- have a 32mm diameter.
- have 90 degree angle markers embossed on them, which may prove useful for some gaming usages.
- have a 1mm lip on the underside, so that they won't slide around the table like completely flat bases do.
- make their owner 3mm taller (if the owner stands on top of one).

We have the ability to make the bases in clear plastic, or coloured plastic (grey, black, green, blue, white, etc).

Which would YOU prefer?

Miniature shown atop the base is a Vanguard Miniatures "Novan Heavy Frigate".
