I have had several requests to release this model despite the minor wing fit problem previously noted so here it is the Novan fast cruiser is released today. Please read the stores model info before deciding on purchase cheers.

Novan Fast Cruiser - £8.00





Quote
A multi part full resin cast model of the Novan Fast Cruiser.

Please note that this model has minor fit issues with the wings which is why i’m selling them cheaper than would normally be the case. Customers have requested release of this model regardless of this problem so I have done so. If you look at the gallery images of the ship you can see what the problem is and make up your own mind if you want to purchase or not, really you just need to trim/file the wings to sit better in the recesses and tidy up with green stuff if you wish.

Approximate model dimensions, Length: 85mm Wingspan: 41mm

7mm dice for scale

It's so sleek and stylish! Reminds me of the classic Space Fleet designs, only transported to this modern age of miniatures brilliance.

As I was browsing the thread to get to the end, I had another look at that Hawk Wargames space station set: I'd forgotten how amazing it is!

Guys, a quick question: we've had a teeny tiny version of the new Elites Eagle gunship done for starship scale gaming but is it too small next to the fighters. Should we upscale it a bit?

Resin ship:

Hello Backers, and Watchers!

We've now hit 33.3333333% funded!

Because we're getting good takeup on the STL set pledges, that means our projected cost burden drops somewhat from our highest margin, and we can start unlocking a few physical model kits...

So, today's project update adds a new RESIN MODEL KIT to the Kickstarter: The Largo Cargo Lighter.

The Large Cargo Lighter is 85mm long, and will be supplied with one of our clear plastic bases.

New ships inbound!!!

Novan Elites Lynx Class Destroyers - £5.00










Quote
Lynx class Destroyers are small and fast craft that are capable of quickly delivering their deadly cargo. For its size the Lynx is heavily armed, making it a jack of all trades. Its basic armament includes two dorsal mounted twin turrets to take out incoming ordnance which can be replaced with planetary bombardment cannon as the mission dictates, and two pairs of prow torpedo tubes. Its broadsides allow for different types of weapon systems which can be changed whilst in dock due to its modular design. Most common broadside configurations are either weapon batteries or launch bays for a small compliment of fighters and assault craft.
Its diverse armament is also its main disadvantage. A lot of space normally used for supplies such as fuel, ammunition, foodstuffs, and oxygen is sacrificed for the Lynx’s many weapon systems. What this means is that the Lynx needs constant resupplying, making it incapable of long independent missions away from sources of supply. Because of this the Lynx is often deployed on short duration missions only, when not operating as part of a larger battle flotilla.

This set contains:
2 x Lynx Destroyer hulls (1 x batteries, 1 x launch bays)
2 x optional wings sets and twin turrets
2 x alternative bombardment turrets

Painted by John Fielding in Ferro Ascendancy colours.
Model length approx. 38mm
Flight base not included

Space ship update:

Quote
FYI.
Posted up this notification on my website Panthera product entry.
THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BE THE LAST BATCH OF METAL CAST PANTHERA BEFORE I MOVE OVER TO MOSTLY RESIN CAST SHIPS, SO PLEASE BE AWARE OF THAT. THE MOULD FOR THIS MODEL IS SHOWING SIGNS OF WEARING OUT SO THESE ARE NOT OF THE SAME QUALITY AS USUAL BUT STILL OF VIABLE USE, FORTUNATELY MOST OF THE WEAR IS IN AREAS THAT WILL BE COVERED BY THE "WINGS" OR WEAPON BROADSIDES.
So this latest batch will most likely be the last metal Panthera available, if any of you guys/gals still want metal versions then you will have to snap them up once ordering has been enabled again either tomorrow or Thursday.
Cheers John



Get them in metal while you can: https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-elites-panthera-ii-class-heavy-frigate-x-2/

Aaaaaand, another little update:

Ok time for some good news.
The first of the Zeus class vessels has entered production, the little Destroyer squadron will be the first release of this ship class, the frigate and cruiser to follow at a later date as circumstances allow.
These are actual production casts samples sent to me yesterday.
