As promised, we've finally unleashed our new WEC Highlanders on an unsuspecting world! Given the number of queries I’ve fielded about these wee chaps I am sure that there will be loud cheers ringing around parts of the world and the odd glass of spirits raised in toast.
The original ECW range had just the one code covering these chaps. We've elaborated a bit on the new figures and you now get the posh highlanders armed with sword, targe and attitude, and the lower class sorts armed with an assortment of axes and musket (and attitude). We also do these in standing around mode and in full charging being quite aggressive mode. All of which makes for some very spectacular and suitably motley units.
These chaps were officially released at Salute, and were part of the reason why Lindy and me were run ragged all day. We had a great show and it was nice to see all of you who attended, even if we didn't get much time to chat.
However, the biggest story to come out for the show to my mind was the news that the best Participation game at the show was won by Peter Riley and his Wargames Collection Calculator team with his Little Big Horn game. Let's put this into context; there were SIXTY games in this category, done for the most part in 28mm and with some big and spectacular terrain builds. A 6mm game beat the lot of them and huge credit must go to the WCC team for this success and I am sure that you'll all echo my sentiments when I say 'Well done!' A superb effort and just rewards.
There will be some more new releases in the next few days - this time it will Great War Italians...
Hi everyone this is my first post on this site as a Trader member and it was suggested that I make an introductory message to inform you all of just exactly what it is we do here at Vanguard Miniatures.
I am a UK based retailer of small scale sci-fi miniatures in the following scales, 3mm, 6mm and 15mm. As well as my own ranges of figures under the Defeat in Detail label I import Onslaught Miniatures from the USA and other related products from various international sources including Wasteland Game Studio and Gregster's Lab. Another of my own product ranges are the very popular gothic style starship models usable with many of the fleet action rule sets available out there.
Other products also stocked here at Vanguard from my sister company Troublemaker Games include 15mm and 28mm sci fi figures and the very popular plastic modular building tile sets viable for use with our various scale miniatures. Of note here is that these tile set will be expanded upon via a new Kickstarter campaign due very soon now.
I hope you find our products of interest, kind regards John.
