Ha! Material for convertors then. :)

In the meantime, I've got a feeling more aircraft would be needed. There's already room for two atmospheric single pilot craft (gunship and interceptor), then the gunship that can also carry some infantry and a piloted walker, then the heavier version of that craft that can also fly in space. And of course the heavier version of the kakapo used by the alien hunting specialists.

Plenty of stuff that still needs models. :)

Like to add more aircraft for sure but need to settle on an aesthetic first that I like.

Hmm, I would love to try something out. The only problem is that we've currently got two aesthetics for the Elites' aircraft, on one hand there's the style as seen with the Bulwark, and then there's what we've got with the Javelin fighter. The Javelin - at least background wise - could have originated from the same factory as vehicles such as the Novan Regulars tanks like the Warrior and Centurion.

Another tricky thing is that the Novan Elites' originally didn't really have that much aircraft, only the Bulwarks, so I can imagine it to be a tricky investment to expand their line of aircraft.

I went with the rounded aesthetic for the Bulwark to make them IP-distinct. Shruggoth.

I really love that though, it made the Bulwark very interesting. Would be curious to see somewhat smaller craft done in that same style. :)

Just wanted to give some verbal support for the Stormer!

How exactly does that front door assembly work, though? It looks like a pair of bottom-hinged doors that have doors inside them.

Hey thanks dude.

The main ramp is a one piece item which has two doors built into it for accesss when the main assault ramp is up this limits exposure to the insides of the vehicle. Used mainly as an alternative entrance and emergency exits too.

Well that's what i'm telling anyone who asks anyway. :)

A couple of new armoured vehicles for the elites already printed.

Haven't settled on names for these yet.

Awesome stuff, don't forget to share them on Facebook as well. :)

By the way, do the Novan Elites' vehicles also use the same naming conventions as the Novan Regular vehicles?

Too bad the sniper's cannon doesn't match the one from the Novan Avenger since they are the same weapon. Not really a problem though since the sniper's cannon does seem like an improvement to me. We can always say that they've been manufactured by two different factories. Different 'pattern' or 'Mk' or whatever. :)
