Continued on the Vanguard stuff:

Just wanted to quickly share my current vehicle pool with you. At the moment it consists of 17 different tanks (with the possibility of it becoming 21 if you're counting the turrets from the gun emplacements)

So yeah, from front to back and from left to right:
-"Hunter Hull": Bunker buster cannon, anti-armour heavy laser cannon
-"Siege Hull" with "spray weapons pack": Heavy flame weapon, subatomic heat weapon, chemical spray weapon
-"Standard Pack" (standard hull): multiple laser cannon, twin linked heavy machine guns, flame weapon, automatic cannon
-"Oddities Sprue" (standard hull): quad automatic cannons, light battle cannon, multiple laser cannon with multiple missile launchers, heavy laser cannon, medical transport
-"Weapons of Faith" (standard hull): Twin linked flame throwers, twin linked heavy machine guns, twin linked subatomic heat weapons.

I sent off the stl files to Vanguard, they had the prints done by Clockwork 3D if I'm not mistaken.

I had my doubts, but those look pretty damn good "in person". Model to print really is a big step in the process.

Now you get to find out just how hard it is to make a fighter and not have it look like a Viper. :P
