Space ship update:

FYI.
Posted up this notification on my website Panthera product entry.
THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BE THE LAST BATCH OF METAL CAST PANTHERA BEFORE I MOVE OVER TO MOSTLY RESIN CAST SHIPS, SO PLEASE BE AWARE OF THAT. THE MOULD FOR THIS MODEL IS SHOWING SIGNS OF WEARING OUT SO THESE ARE NOT OF THE SAME QUALITY AS USUAL BUT STILL OF VIABLE USE, FORTUNATELY MOST OF THE WEAR IS IN AREAS THAT WILL BE COVERED BY THE "WINGS" OR WEAPON BROADSIDES.
So this latest batch will most likely be the last metal Panthera available, if any of you guys/gals still want metal versions then you will have to snap them up once ordering has been enabled again either tomorrow or Thursday.
Cheers John

Get them in metal while you can: https://vanguardmini...vy-frigate-x-2/

Aaaaaand, another little update:

Ok time for some good news.
The first of the Zeus class vessels has entered production, the little Destroyer squadron will be the first release of this ship class, the frigate and cruiser to follow at a later date as circumstances allow.
These are actual production casts samples sent to me yesterday.

HNmp3Kt.jpg
OGWCPAg.jpg
NWHWo8T.jpg
fb4qJVD.jpg?1
UPJ62AF.jpg

The Pacifier is a heavily modified variant of the Sparta APC, its primary roll is in urban pacification operations. Fitted with larger armoured viewports than a traditional APC and with hull mounted periscopes for the passengers, those onboard are provided with improved situational awareness when operating in built up areas. A dozer blade can also be mounted on the forward hull to help with breaching obstacles. Standard armament is a small remotely operated twin machine gun mount on the upper hull.

Alternatively the passenger compartment can be quickly refitted to contain an armoured fuel tank from which to feed a non lethal crowd control water cannon, or if in extremely hostile situations or supporting battlefield operations a heavy dual flamethrower can be mounted.

Set contains:

3 x Pacifier hulls

3 x Armoured dozer blades

3 x Twin heavy machine gun turrets

3 x Twin heavy flamethrower turrets

3 x Water cannon

The Hurk is one of the heaviest of the Skinners aircraft encountered to date, commonly seen in two variants. The strategic heavy bomber variant has twin bomb bays for heavy ordinance deployment as well as being able to drop lighter bombs from the rear drop down ramp position, the wings can also mount bombs or rockets as required. The transport variant replaces the bomb bay with troop benches and sports heavy machine guns for self defence, alternatively the troop benches can be removed in order to make space for logistics operations.

Fixed armaments include two forward facing twin medium cannon on the fuselage, a rotating twin machine gun turret in the dorsal position and remotely operated rear facing twin machine guns on the tail, other armaments have also been observed.

This is a multipart resin and metal kit with modelling options.

Resin parts:

1 x Fuselage, 1 x Nose section, 2 x Wings (port and starboard), 1 x Vertical stabiliser fin, 1 x Horizontal stabiliser wing, 1 x Bomb bay module, 1 x Transport bay module, 4 x Engine intakes, 4 x Engine thrusters, 4 x Hull fixing dowels.

Metal parts:

I x Skinner Bombardier, 1 x Bomb bay ramp open, 1 x Closed ramp, 2 x Fuselage cannon, 1 x Dorsal turret, 6 x Machine gun barrels.

Update from Battlegroup Helios:

UPDATE
All Zeus pattern ships and the spear prows have been approved for manufacture. Mould making could start in as little as two weeks with a pre-xmas release quite possible.
Panthera and Lynx, both are now being re-printed and will be put back in production as soon as possible.
Also now in the queue to follow on the heels of these are another ten vessels for various factions.

The centurion main battle tank is the most common tank used by Novan Regular forces in the field a rugged and heavily armoured design it has been built to be a reliable and easy to operate vehicle capable of going long periods of time between maintenance cycles making it the perfect machine to equip Tusculum Nova’s armoured divisions.

The designs has seen many weapon fits over the years but the most common armaments (hector configuration) are a regular tank cannon in the turret backed up by a fixed forward hull mounted laser cannon. In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.

This model is a regular Centurion tank without track guards.

Eloi reinforcements!

Eloi Federation – Way Seekers - £3.50
P1080619EC.jpg

 

Eloi Federation Way Seekers

Function:

The Way Seekers of the Eloi Federation function as the leaders of Eloi Battle Contingents, and are to be found serving at all levels of command from Detachment Commander to Battle Group Leaders. They have many specialist branches within the Eloi’s military establishment. Highly intelligent and extensively trained the “Seekers” as they are commonly known have studied the art of war in all its many aspects and are therefore opponents not to be underestimated.

Equipment:

They wear a modified suit of Eloi battle armour and robes made of an unknown fabric with several remarkable properties which will not be elaborated upon here. Armaments carried by such individuals include conventional Eloi small arms as well as the favoured “great sword” a melee weapon capable of piercing even the mighty armour of our Novan Elites. Certain individuals have also been observed as carrying the less common spear and rarely a staff which may serve as a badge of office.

Observed abilities:

Redacted by order of the high command – Magenta level clearance required.

This set contains:

12 x way seekers

1 x master seeker

Miniatures painted by John Fielding.

- £9.00
P1080684GT.jpg
P1080685GT.jpg
P1080683GT.jpg
P1080682GT.jpg

The Elites Guardian tank is yet another product of Tusculum Nova’s most advanced research and development programs 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 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 .

This particular variant of the Guardian utilises the latest turret design commonly found on many new production run Trojan IFV’s with in this case a twin 20mm rotary-cannon mounted to either side of the commanders hatch these cannon are devastating  in the anti-personnel roll and they are extremely effective against light vehicles also. 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 with rotary cannon turrets.

Model dimensions are: 30mm long, 22mm wide not including sponsons, 15mm high to top of turret.

Update time!

Ships News

After much thought I decided to dispense with the funding campaign and press ahead with self funding a bunch of the ships myself.

The Panthera frigate and Lynx destroyers previously manufactured in metal have now been slightly remodelled and remastered for resin casting. These three ships are now being  moved towards printing the masters and then moulding. Hope to see them re-released very early next year.

Zeus pattern vessels, the destroyer as you are probably aware has already been released. I have now received sample production castings of the cruiser, light cruiser and frigate which I have authorised to be manufactured ASAP, the casters predict a late November delivery date for the first batch of those. The Spear pattern prows will also be available around the same time.

Picture of all four ship types below.
