Hi I'm new here. Just in case anyone is interested, Scourge Scenics offer alternative BFG miniatures. Please follow the link to the website.

Just by way of example this is the sort of thing available there:

Please remove if this sort of thing isn't allowed.

Thanks all.

Update time from Vanguard Miniatures!

Ships News

After much thought I decided to dispense with the funding campaign and press ahead with self funding a bunch of the ships myself.

The Panthera frigate and Lynx destroyers previously manufactured in metal have now been slightly remodelled and remastered for resin casting. These three ships are now being moved towards printing the masters and then moulding. Hope to see them re-released very early next year.

Zeus pattern vessels, the destroyer as you are probably aware has already been released. I have now received sample production castings of the cruiser, light cruiser and frigate which I have authorised to be manufactured ASAP, the casters predict a late November delivery date for the first batch of those. The Spear pattern prows will also be available around the same time.

Picture of all four ship types below.

They’re some really nice designs. If a little on the pricy side.
Would like to see actual models as opposed to renders but will definitely consider grabbing a couple for my rogue trader fleet.

Novan Elites naval reinforcements inbound!

First up, the Panthera Heavy Frigate has been re-released in resin.

Nova Elites Fleet – Panthera II Pattern Heavy Frigate
ThZjj0F.jpg

IQH12bk.jpg

w1cjQSx.jpg

The Panthera class Heavy Frigate is the workhorse of the Novan Elite fleets. Heavily armed and armoured, its various weapon configurations allow it to fulfil many different void combat roles.
No matter its broadside configuration, the Panthera’s basic armament includes two triple linked dorsal mounted turrets 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 it’s modular design.

Most commonly used are weapons batteries, more than capable of tearing huge chunks out of enemy vessels many times its own size. Another popular configuration for the Panthera is to fit it with launch bays, allowing the heavy frigate to carry Javelin fighters. In order to protect other ships of the fleet from waves of ordnance and enemy fighters the Panthera is sometimes also configured with broadside turret platforms capable of projecting a withering volume of defensive fire.

set contents:

1 x Panthera hull
1 x Wing set (forward and aft)
2 x Triple turret broadsides
2 x Launch bay broadsides
2 x Gun deck broadsides

2 x Triple dorsal turrets

Model is 52mm long.

Resin cast model

And then there's a completely new ship, the Pardus Assault Frigate!

Novan Elites Fleet – Pardus Pattern Assault Frigate
FADkpJM.jpg

3e484fh.jpg

1WPVsDX.jpg

The Pardus pattern assault frigate was a developed born of a need for a heavy hitting escort fitted with multiple plasma accelerators. The design is based on a modified Panthera hull which sacrifices its broadsides and torpedo capability in order to house the power core and systems necessary to feed three massive plasma accelerator cannon. Capable of firing all three cannon simultaneously in a devastating salvo that has been the doom of many an enemy vessel these ships are a extremely valuable asset for any Elites fleets.

They are often deployed in squadrons of two to four ships operating in line-breaker formations or as capital ship hunters of some renown.

Set contains:

1 x Pardus hull

1 x wings set (forward and aft)

2 x triple barrel dorsal turrets

I like the look of the scourge scenic ships... Could anyone suggest a shopping list for a versatile imperial navy from them ?
I never played the game :)

I like a couple of mixed cruisers (one of each from the main rulebook is a good point to aim for) a pair of torpedo dauntlesses and some escorts of your choice. Cobras are particularly good although they’re all useful

Add a battleship (I like the Emperor) once you’ve played a few games.

I’d start at a 1500 point fleet as this is enough for all one off games and then add more ships later for variety during a campaign.

NEW SHIPS!!!

Cybershadow Fleet – Light Cruiser
KrVcYx8.jpg

twZKmmQ.jpg

k23qiJk.jpg

ca8JUFD.jpg

UYzXZFy.jpg

Cybershadow light cruiser with three broadsides options.

Set contains:
1 x light cruiser hull
1 x hull components sprue (2 prow options)
2 x broadsides sprues (cannon, launch bays, turrets)

Notes:

1. Resin cast model
2. Model length approximately 75mms

Novan Elites – Lynx Pattern Assault Destroyer
Yt4g41h.jpg

hZSqeOb.jpg

A common variant of the Lynx destroyer the “assault” pattern hull sacrifices its torpedo launchers and broadsides capabilities in order to house a ship busting plasma accelerator cannon, turning the ship into a dedicated attack vessel.

Set contains:
1 x Lynx assault hull
1 x destroyer parts sprue

Notes:

1. Resin cast model
2. Model approximate length 45mms including prow mounted plasma accelerator

Novan Elites – Lynx Pattern Destroyers
jvB0fdU.jpg

AgiB7qn.jpg

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, 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.

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

Notes:
1.Resin cast models
2. Model length approx. 38mm
3. Flight base not included

Broadsides for days. Quite possibly the source of the Downhive Despoilers "Give 'em 9." slogan.

Some more space ship stuff!

First of all, there have been some questions regarding the size of the upcoming Helian battleship. Here is is next to its cruiser counterpart:

Secondly, there was a request for a cruiser prow to match the ones from the old Troublemaker Games versions Novan escorts:

And thirdly, some Cybershadows cruisers have just been printed:
