A bunch of new releases!

Novan Elites Guardian Main Battle Tank:

Quote
The elites guardian tank is yet another product of Tusculum Novaís most advanced research and development program to equip itís elite forces with the most powerful weapons and equipment that can be provided. Guardianís are intended to act as front line main battle tanks for elite forces 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 .

The core weapon system is a remote operated turret mounting a double barrelled railgun fireing either armour piercing or high explosive ammunition at extremely high velocity. The ammunition is stowed in the large automated ammo supply bin at the rear of the gun assembly. This arrangement allows the weapon to be operated by a single crewman.

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.

£12.00

Novan Elites Sniper Tank Hunter:

Quote
The sniper tank hunter is a dedicated anti armour vehicle constructed on a modified and reconfigured guardian hull. It shares many common features and systems of the guardian and was developed to work alongside that tank in mixed battlegroups.

Itís main weapon system is a high powered long range laser cannon fixed in the forward hull position and capable of penetrating the armour of most enemy tanks with easy. Secondary armament consists of  two sponson points just like the guardian with the same weapon options and the hull MG as standard.

Most commonly working in teams of three vehicles on dedicated anti armour duties or as single vehicles attached to guardian formations this vehicle has already made itís mark on the battlefield and gained a fearsome reputation amongst enemy vehicle crews.

This system is capable of launching various specialist missiles including medium to high altitude antiaircraft missiles, long range high explosive, anti armour, and scatterable mines to name but a few.

This will probably be the last release Vanguard Miniatures will be doing in 2016. Expect tons of new crazy stuff in 2017.

Designed to carry novan elite siege armoured troops right up to the walls of enemy fortifications unscathed this incredibly tough fighting machine has aided in the fall of many an impregnable fortress. Massively armoured and heavily shielded this vehicle can absorb an incredible amount of punishment on itís approach.

Armed with a breaching microwave battery to itís front boardering the assault  ramp it also has several sponson locations for self defense and a upper hull mounted rocket mortar positioned to bombard the defenders on the walls, alternatively some will carry rotary cannon mounts instead.

This set contains 1 x stormer hull with separate assault ramp and 1 x stormer weapons sprue.

Image of the actual model will appear ASAP.

Mauler length 36mm, width 27mm, height 14mm again not including weapons.
Wellington, Gladstonian, & Avenger: length 40mm, width 20mm, height 12mm not including sponsons, the other two are the same sized hull but higher due to the weapons on board.

A little message from Vanguard Miniatures:
Quote
Winter troops news, as everyone knows there is an issue with these figures ankles being weak so some breakages can occur at the moment i'm adding an extra sprue to each infantry pack to help cover this issue.

So anyway i've been working with ben to re-work the figures to resolve this issue here we have in ben's own words and explanation of the changes and an image to compare.

We've kept the original aesthetic as far as practical so the old and new figures should mix together no problem.

Changes include:

Proper hands instead of blocks.
More form-fitting coats instead of "bell shaped" coats.
Minor mod to the rifle.
Pose changes to be more dynamic (old figures all stood pretty straight up, these are now hunching forwards a bit.
Minor detail realignments (shoulderpads, head tilts, etc).

Overall they're pretty much the same as the long-established popular Winter Infantry sculpts, just a bit better quality, and obviously with the weak ankles dealt with. Not a huge update, but a needed one.

Two more tiny updates from Vanguard Miniatures:

Quote
New version of the Kakapo arrived today we have increased the thickness of the tail booms and extended the horizontal stabilsers forward which seems to have sorted the weak tail fins issue. Next model to re-work will be the Moa, already updated, just awaiting printing.
