(depending on what prow you give them they are about 50mm long)


no offence here, but I only just noticed: 50mm for a system ship? thats actually huge! thats the +/- the size of an imperial transport escort. system ships are typically more in the range of between 5-15mm

System ship is perhaps a wrong name here. John from Vanguard Miniatures has designated them as System Ships, but they are more akin to escorts. I guess that in the background of the Vanguard Miniatures setting System Ships are probably just ships that mainly remain in a planet's orbit and could be various sizes?

Sorry for the confusion!

oh just ignore me. I'm just super pedantic/ocd with these things. like it makes a difference anyhow? the ships are amazing whatever they're called!   ;) just a small question, will the panthera conversion kit be available separately or as part of a panthera kit? or both? only interested as I don't own any pantheras yet but most likely will grab a pack with said conversion kit whenever it gets released on vanguard.  just figured it might be of interest to those who already own pantheras and are considering altering them...

I think the future Pantheras will be sold with the extra sprue. Not sure yet if those sprues will also be sold separate for those who've already bought the model.

That's good to know. I'm super buzzed for those. Hope we expect them soon!  ;D

I can't wait for all the other escorts to be out as well (three types of Destroyers, another Frigate, a tiny Stealth Ship, not to mention all those 'civilian' ships).

After a bit of a delay I have finally sent the little Felis stealth ship off to the casters, ETA in store would be end of the month with luck.
