We expect to see pre-production casting of all bases within the next few weeks, if we are happy with them then a full production order can be submitted, ETA sorry no idea on that until we receive our first order from the new manufacturer.

We are now completely sold out of both round and strip plastic bases, pre-production samples from our new manufacturer are expected in this week or at the latest next week, if we are happy with the quality we will be immediately ordering two huge batches and get these popular items back in stock as soon as possible, we thank you for your continued patience.

Regards John

What’s happening update.

Thought i’d post a general update on just what’s happening here at vanguard minis.

First the plastic bases situation, we have now ordered production runs on both the round and strip bases and are waiting on the new casters to begin the work, I cannot give a solid ETA on delivery but we are getting there and hopefully it will not be to long before they are back in stock.

Last month I submitted a large re-stock order to Onslaught minis, this will take approximately two to three month’s to process and ship if previous orders are anything to go by.

Gothic starships, I have an order in for the Helios fleet range which is getting low in stock and I continue to progress the other ship designs we’ve been working on as well as the upgrade set for Panthera. Could be the odd surprise model coming along now and then also.

3mm, design and moulding continues for the 3mm range we have a few items to add to the Elites forces, a bunch more tanks for the Regulars and the Skinners army has started moulding too. More news on these as castings start arriving.

6mm, serveral re-stock orders in for my Defeat in Detail line including several items now out of stock. We have a few more Cybershadows releases coming this month and a new light gunship for the Elites is in the works. Lots more planned for 6mm this year so plenty to look forward too.

15mm, I believe there are a few more items at various stages of progress from Troublemaker Games and I have an order in to get those skinners wheeled trucks back in stock, apparently there is a delay at the casters on those.

Likewise certain of the TMG plastic building sets will get replenished as the new casters gear up and prepare the moulds for production on their machines, keep an eye out for a campaign to expand this range in the near future.

I also have a few more terrain items in the works and hope to be stocking those resin buildings from Gregster’s Labs last funding campaign as soon as they can be supplied.

As you can see plenty going on in the background here at vanguard.

Kind regards John

Thanks for keeping us updated! I'm interested in the bases when they get back in.

News on the bases front, first the bad news, there have been issues with the round bases mould with castings jamming in the mould so the mould needs some minor modifications to rectify the problem, so it will be a little longer before we see those. Now the good news, samples of the strip bases have been received and approved, a full production run has been authorised and completed. We are now awaiting notification of a dispatch date which should be sometime this week, not long now we are almost there, it will just be a matter of me counting and bagging (tedious and time consuming) before they are back in store, we thank you for your patience.
