May be you should think about alternative gun design for these howitzers. Something more modern to match hull not only WH40k style. It looks a bit strange together.

I'd love some of these designs in 15mm... especially the fighter craft.

Remember the siege tank I've designed for Vanguard Miniatures?

Vanguard have taken my weapon designs for a new variant on their Trojan tank:

There are aspects of the Centurion I quite like, especially the turret and the design from the sponson's back. The front glacius on the forward section though I find a bit too abrupt and busy which causes the hull mounted cannon to look a bit awkward.

I think I would have let the tracks extend a bit forward of the hull to make that hull gun feel less exposed and probably made the barrel on the gun a bit shorter. On the tracks I think I'd have removed the weird bumper pieces under the headlights and just left the track exposed there. Last of all I think I'd of shifted the driver's viewport so it lined up with the headlamps from the direct front view.

Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely take that into account when designing the heavier variant of this tank. :)

In the meantime some casts came in for the Dragon flame tanks (3 turret variants) and the Novan Elites Jetbikes:

New releases!

Novan Regulars Support Tanks:
Image
The warrior IFV hull has seen numerous adaptions over it’s years of service. Many field modifications as well as factory produced variants have come and gone but others have prooven themselves in the test of battle and endured to this day. Two such variants are the Hunter tank destroyer and the Hammer bunker buster.

Both vehicles use the same adapted warrior hull to house a specialist heavy weapon in a fixed forward mount giving a low profile for an excellent hull down capability.

The hunter houses a long barrelled high energy laser cannon capable of penetrating the heaviest armour making for a most effect tank hunter.

The hammer on the other hand has a completely different roll and houses a short barrelled heavy mortar designed to smash enemy fortifications to rubble in short order.

Most often seen supporting warrior mounted mechanised forces these vehicles are a powerful addition to the novan arsenal.

This pack contains:

3 x hull

3 x sprues with optional weapons

£9.00

Novan Elites Javelin Fighter:
Image

The Javelin aero-space light fighter is a sleak highly manouverable and extremely fast multi roll capable aircraft able to operate in space as well as in atmosphere with equal ease thanks to advanced anti gravity generators and numerous directional thrusters.

Used exclusively by novan elite forces pilots this fighter has become a feared site for Tusculum Nova’s enemies with a reputation for extreme combat manouver’s and skilled piloting used to deadly effect.

Armaments include twin laser cannon in each wing mount and innovative vertical launch anti-aircraft missiles mounted along the upper fuseleage.

This pack contains 2 x Javelin fighters and 2 x plastic flight stands.

£7.00
