SEASONS GREETINGS

SEASONAL BREAK

We are again approaching the Christmas/New Year holiday period here in the UK and I thought I’d post up some end of year news.

KICKSTARTER

Troublemaker Games for whom I retail products have a new campaign coming very soon now, this campaign expands on the plastic tiles sets and adds new 25mm round city bases to the range.

NEW MINIATURES

I have many new miniatures planned for the coming year all factions within the 6mm Defeat in Detail product line will be getting reinforcements during 2024 and hopefully we can get more 3mm released next year too. I’m not sure what if any plans Troublemaker have for their 15mm range but I do hope to see further expansion in the scale.

Cybershadow Stalkers, the first in what was planned to be an expanding range of large resin cast battle walkers will release in January, stock of both the new designs are already here and I just need to finish creating the site entries before launching these kits. Another kit in is the works which will follow first quarter next year but after that I have no idea if further kits in this “walkers” range can be achieve due to difficulty in securing commissioned designers.

Ships, I have around a dozen ship designs finished that I will be pushing towards resin casting as soon as masters can be produced, this includes the long awaited Zeus Grand Cruiser which was originally going to be a 3D printed item but which has now be resin cast with full production starting during January alongside two other small ship models.

3D PRINT

More printed products are likely during the new year but for the most part I am moving away from 3D printing as a major aspect of the business. Printed products are less practical than cast products and are time consuming to manufacture in number. 3D printed products are not what I hoped they would be and I have mostly returned to traditional casting for the future.

LICENSED PRODUCTS

Vanguard already retails some items under license and that will be expanding during 2024.

So as you can see we have plenty to look forward to in the coming months, you can keep apprised on all this and more via vanguards Discord page.

I would just like to thank all the people involved in the manufacture of my miniatures and especially my commissioned volunteer designers for their continued willingness to work with vanguard and also their continued patience with my constant design tinkering guidance, appreciated guys thank you.

Of course without my loyal customers I would not be here so many thanks to one and all for your continued custom, encouragement and support again this year it is greatly appreciated.

Have a great holiday everyone and I’ll catch you in 2024.

Best Regards John
