Vanguards Birthday

Vanguard Miniatures is four years old tomorrow the 18th of September, I do not often choose to celebrate such business milestones but have decided to do so this year in order to thank all my customers old and new for their continued support and encouragement. And so to that end Vanguard will be having a 12% off basket discount event for one day only running from midnight tonight until midnight on the 18th. Enter the code “four today” to receive the discount when checking out.

Quick news update

Skinners Infantry are at long last back in stock.

Other news of note is that the Helian fleet Dreadnought and Firedrake class cruisers re-stock will be arriving sometime tomorrow and so they should be back in store by weeks end if not sooner.

News 27/08/19

Another update for you all on what exactly is happening here at Vanguard.

6mm Skinners infantry set B will be remoulded late this week early next with new masters and so will be back in store by the end of September.

Plenty of new 6mm products are lined up including Skinners tank variants, new Skinners leaders in heavy armour, updated gobblers and a new fighter.

Also for 6mm are new Desert troops sets, a new IFV and heavy assault transport for the regulars, and possible a few new tanks too. Next 6mm release should be the Cybershadow combat automaton set 1 and there are still yet more Cybershadow units to come.

3mm hope to see the Elites gunships in production very soon now and Skinners sets should appear in a few months time. We will also be getting the 3mm terrain models back in stock at some point.

Starships, the Dreadnought and Firedrake are on order and should also be in soon. I have three more metal ship releases for the Elites, all these should be out before the end of the year. There are also a few secret project pieces to come for this range too, more on that as I near production.

Terrain, I have around half a dozen new resin cast terrain items coming for 6mm, most if not all should see a September release. We are also looking at adapting a lot of Troublemaker Games last kickstarter campaign stl designs into actual physical models for retail so potentially a lot of new terrain pieces to come in the future. Some of these may see a 3mm release as well.

As can been seen we have plenty going on in the background and plenty of new releases to come before years end.

Another update

Thought I’d post an update for everyone.

Defeat in detail, more 6mm Cybershadows and Skinners miniatures in the pipeline plus a few odds and ends for various other ranges. Also on the cards a revamp of the desert sets to bring them more in line with newer set contents from other regiments. There will also be more 3mm items appearing later in the year.

6mm Skinners infantry needed a new mould so I’ve taken the opportunity to break the sprue up into single sided sprues which produce better casting results. This has meant a minor delay whilst I get the masters sorted. Should be back in stock next month.

Oh I also have a few 6mm resin cast terrain items in the works too.

Onslaught Minis, recently had a third restock batch in with yet more items outstanding, an order for newer releases will be submitted as soon as funding allows.

Gregster’s Lab, I have been informed that due to various reasons I will not elaborate on here that any restock from GL will also be later in the year.

Wasteland Games Studio, due to a failure to supply, I submitted an order over twelve months ago now and I’m still waiting, that what I have in stock now is likely to be it, and its not looking likely I will be getting anymore.

Onslaught Top Up

Two thirds of my Onslaught Miniatures re-stock order arrived today, many codes are now back in store and I hope to see the final batch arriving by month’s end.
