Great containers and Ork stuff. Hope they will be released one day. If not, do you plan to make them available as printing file ? Or can we buy them to you directly ?

Thanks, the first two are more or less ready. 3 to 5 more to go:

I couldn't stop thinking about this idea for several days, so I did a really quick experiment. Note that this is just a sketch!



I like the idea of some general sort of (semi-)civilian transport vehicle used by the Cybershadows. I would assume that these walkers would also be donated to the Syran rebels. The model would also provide a great opportunity for 6mm post apocalyptic and other sci fi stuff.

I also thought it could function as a light transport that can carry a single 5-6 man squad:

I've always liked the idea of "civilian" vehicles that can be used for scenery details.

I love all the civilian stuff you can add. Like Sotrmwind, i like when their presence can be seen. They can bu used for a scenario, objective, etc... They credibilise the world.

Indeed, I'd really like to develop some more civilian stuff. But that of course will depend on the desires of Vanguard Miniatures (which are mainly influenced by whether such kits would sell). I've noticed that Vanguard haven't put my bits in the terrain section of the site, but built a separate section for it.

So Spike has been tweaking my original Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle, this is an early test print:



Vanguard Miniatures have given me the task to finish up this model. Shouldn't be too difficult I hope since stl doesn't always translate that well into SketchUp...

Viz. Civilian vehicles: When GW were previewing AT, they showed a civilian cargo train, but it's not been seen since!

Please don't hesitate to share any (visual) ideas for civilian vehicles! :)

Will the Skinnerz flame tanks replace the flame vector vehicles?

No, they will exist alongside one another. :)
