I have been sitting on these for a while, but the first batch is going off to the moldmakers in mid-May so I figured it was about time to preview them.

This is a family shot of all the vehicles due to be released.
Image

The first "wave will consist of the little 4-wheeler, the 6 wheeler APC in the back, the 10-wheeler assault tank on the right, and the little scout/attack cycle up front. Also in the first wave is a big land transporter/truck with a flat-top and cargo container, but that is not pictured.

I was going to release infantry in the first wave, but people seem to want special and heavy weapons also, so all the infantry, the superheavy tank in the middle, the gunship, and the support vehicle (3 turret options) will be in the second wave. Here are some infantry previews:
Image

The heavy/special pack will have gatling gunners, rocket launchers, flamethrowers and a crazy guy shooting two rifles at once (for fun). Here is a WIP of the minigunners:
Image

This will probably be my last big scifi release for a while, as I need to get some more fantasy stuff out. I'm also planning to dip my toe into the 3mm scifi market, mostly due to the strength of the Strike Legion Planetary Operations rules.

I should mention everything was sculpted by Steve Tyler, obviously a very talented designer.

Release dates...really depends on how busy the moldmaker/caster is. To be safe, I would say early July. The speed of the 2nd wave depends entirely on sales of the first.

Those look great, I especially like the SHT, cycle and lower left missile thingy.

despot, can you tell us the lengths of the eight-wheeler and super-heavy models? They may be useful for Skitaari...

I am actually not producing the 8 wheeler up front yet, but the big guy is just shy of 48mm in length. EDIT - All vehicles in posted are being produced by me, I totally forgot to measure the support 8-wheeler, but will post measurements soon.

I actually meant the 8-wheelers that I think you referred to as the "support vehicle", but thanks for the info on the Super. 48mm is nice and big.

Steve was kind enough to do a new promo shot for me:

I have a larger hi-res version I can provide to anyone that is interested.
