Aaaaand, some 3mm reinforcements for the Novan Regulars:

3mm Novan Regulars – Warrior II Assault Gun Platoons - £3.00
P1080751W2AS3mm.jpg
P1080752W2AS3mm.jpg
P1080753W2AS3mm.jpg

The Warrior II chassis has been used as the basis for many Regulars vehicles over the years the Assault Gun variant was developed to support infantry in urban areas by providing mobile heavy firepower under armour for breaching enemy defensive positions. It has a lighter calibre of weapon than that fitted to the Elite’s Trojan Hammer Assault Gun but it still remains a very effective vehicle in its assigned roll.

This set contains:

8 x Warrior II assault guns (two platoons)

Mordheim revamp? What? Surely you don't mean Warcry being the Mordheim replacement.

On topic- this does look like a bridge/hull.

Some 6mm Skinners aerial reinforcements!

Skinners – Skinook Heavy Transport Chopper
P1080672SK.jpg
P1080299S4.jpg
P1080300S5.jpg
P1080301S6.jpg

P1080876SKINOOK.jpg
P1080877SKINOOK.jpg
P1080673SK.jpg
P1080674SK.jpg

The Skinook is a very basic some would say crude twin rotary wing aircraft used extensively by the Skinners to transport both troops and equipment around the battlefield. It is lightly armed but extremely rugged and is usually escorted by dedicated gunships capable of engaging both air and ground targets in its defence. The passengers sit in the open sided main cabin and have been known to add their own small arms fire to the aircrafts defence. A rear drop down ramp allows for easy loading of cargo and light vehicles like bikes.

Armament is usually twin heavy machine guns mounted in the nose and a door mounted light machine gun to port and starboard, but other armaments have been observed.

This set contains:

1 x fuselage

2 x rotors

1 x rear ramp

1 x passenger cabin roof

1 x cargo hook (can be used to hide the flight stand recess)

1 x chin HMG mount

4 x landing skids

2 x Gobblers door gunners

1 x Skinners passenger group and 2 x Gobblers door gunners

Note: The rotors have been cast with supporting sprue sections between the rotor fins themselves to aid casting, these need to be carefully snipped away.

Resin cast multi-part kit with metal cast passengers and door gunners

Approximate model dimensions: Length 80mms not including MG’s, Hull width 20mms

Novan Elites naval reinforcements inbound!

First up, the Panthera Heavy Frigate has been re-released in resin.

Nova Elites Fleet – Panthera II Pattern Heavy Frigate
ThZjj0F.jpg
IQH12bk.jpg
w1cjQSx.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 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 Javelin fighters. 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.

set contents:

1 x Panthera hull
1 x Wing set (forward and aft)
2 x Triple turret broadsides
2 x Launch bay broadsides
2 x Gun deck broadsides

2 x Triple dorsal turrets

Model is 52mm long.

Resin cast model


https://vanguardmini...-heavy-frigate/

And then there's a completely new ship, the Pardus Assault Frigate!

Novan Elites Fleet – Pardus Pattern Assault Frigate
FADkpJM.jpg
3e484fh.jpg
1WPVsDX.jpg

The Pardus pattern assault frigate was a developed born of a need for a heavy hitting escort fitted with multiple plasma accelerators. The design is based on a modified Panthera hull which sacrifices its broadsides and torpedo capability in order to house the power core and systems necessary to feed three massive plasma accelerator cannon. Capable of firing all three cannon simultaneously in a devastating salvo that has been the doom of many an enemy vessel these ships are a extremely valuable asset for any Elites fleets.

They are often deployed in squadrons of two to four ships operating in line-breaker formations or as capital ship hunters of some renown.

Set contains:

1 x Pardus hull

1 x wings set (forward and aft)

2 x triple barrel dorsal  turrets
