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.

I have received news that my Onslaught Miniatures re-stock order is now being readied for shipment so it should only be a matter of weeks now before it arrives. It takes on average 3 to 4 month’s from ordering to shipping of that order which is a long wait I know but that’s the nature of the game I’m afraid.

On other news the Helian fleet escort frigate is now back in stock and we have a few more new releases on the cards for this month to look forward too. The TMG plastic building sets should be back on the shelves any day now as well.

I guess everyone has already noticed that the round bases are back as well. :)

Situation report

Time for an update, first of two of the three boxes from my Onslaught restock order have been dispatched with the third almost ready to ship as well, so not long now before I can start replenishing the shelves.

Batch four of the strip bases sold out yesterday but good news is I have had batch five in already and they will be back up on the site as soon as I can get them bagged up.

There are a lot of new Defeat in Detail sets under development at this time including more Cybershadow infantry, new Skinners Ironclads and tank turrets, more regulars troops and some progress has been made on adding to the Eloi range. Also we have lots more 3mm sets to come and more terrain items too. For my space combat customers there are more metal ships coming over the next few months and development of a Helian faction battleship continues.

Troublemaker games plastic terrain tiles sets will also soon be back in stock with the first sets expected by month’s end. Look out for an expansion campaign to add to these launching in a few weeks.

Hope to be bringing a lot more terrain pieces to the store over the coming months but a lot will depend on if the manufacturers can supply.

Slightly off track.
Do you know what has happened to Gregster's Lab ?
Sent an email some time ago trying to order larger items Vanguard doesn't carry and complete silence.
Has it closed operations?

They are still active I believe but the caster is extremely busy and orders have fallen way behind, I have been waiting to submit an order for a restock for ages but have not been able to do so. I will request a situation report and get back to you here once/if I get a reply.

Two thirds of my Onslaught Miniatures re-stock order arrived today, many codes are now back in store and I hope to see the final batch arriving by month’s end.

Thought I’d post an update for everyone.

Defeat in detail, more 6mm Cybershadows and Skinners miniatures in the pipeline plus a few odds and ends for various other ranges. Also on the cards a revamp of the desert sets to bring them more in line with newer set contents from other regiments. There will also be more 3mm items appearing later in the year.

Oh I also have a few 6mm resin cast terrain items in the works too.

Onslaught Minis, recently had a third restock batch in with yet more items outstanding, an order for newer releases will be submitted as soon as funding allows.

Gregster’s Lab, I have been informed that due to various reasons I will not elaborate on here that any restock from GL will also be later in the year.

Wasteland Games Studio, due to a failure to supply, I submitted an order over twelve months ago now and I’m still waiting, that what I have in stock now is likely to be it, and its not looking likely I will be getting anymore.

Thanks for the update on Gregster's Lab. I guess my order direct , for items Vanguard that doesn't carry, will not proceed. I haven't been asked to pay so no problem. It would have been nice to get an automated email reply saying they weren't taking new orders. Hopefully he is ok.
