Time for another status update
Green = ready
Yellow = almost ready
Orange = early WIP
Red = planned, not started yet

Novans:
Novan IVR: standard kit -> shipped to Vanguard Miniatures.
Novan IVR turret upgrades: a set of 4 extra turrets (quad autocannon, multilaser + hunter killer missiles, light battle cannon, and laser destroyer cannon) and parts to turn the IVR into a medical transport. -> shipped to Vanguard Miniatures.
Novan IVR turret upgrades: a set of 3 extra turrets (twin linked HMG's, twin linked subatomic heat weapons, twin linked flame throwers, iconographic front hull plate) as part of the 'Weapons of Faith' series (Religious Sisterhood, Inquisition) -> shipped to Vanguard Miniatures.
Vehicle Armour Sprue (IVR): two variants -> shipped off to Vanguard Miniatures.
Novan Dragon Flame Tank. New kit: new hull variant + fuel pod + 3 different types (flame cannon, subatomic heat cannon, chem cannon) -> shipped to Vanguard Miniatures.
Novan Bishop/Archer Hunter Tank (needs a better name): almost ready -> bunker buster weapon needs some tweaking, as does the hull.
Turret emplacement: a bit of tweaking needed and very maybe make a few variants?
Extra weapons for Bishop/Archer: Pack of four weapons (quad multiple laser, quad HMG's, quad automatic cannons, quad mortar) -> still need to make the quad mortar.
Vehicle Upgrade Sprue: an assortment of various bits that you could add to your tanks, from hunter killer missiles, search lights, comm arrays, fuel tanks, etc. -> So far I've got a mini turret for the front hull of the IVR and a missile launcher. More to be added soon.
Novan Elite Fighter: Started upscaling the original BFG scaled model.
Novan heavy artillery: Based on the Dragon Flame Tank's hull but with a few different weapon systems. Bit shell firing cannons and rocket launchers (think big rockets)
Novan reconnaissance tank: Based on the Dragon Flame Tank's hull, kept open backed.
Novan crowd control tank: Based on the Dragon Flame Tank's hull, armed with a flame thrower and twin-linked machine gun. Has extra carriage space on the back where security forces can shoot from.
Novan logistics vehicle: Based on the Dragon Flame Tank's hull with various equipment, think mine-layers/sweepers, cranes, comm arrays, bridge layers, etc.

Cybershadows:
Robotic heavy infantry with jump packs and heavy weapons
Robotic heavy infantry with jump packs and close combat weapons
Siege Robots: armed with two big fists (or saws), wrist mounted weapons and a single shoulder mounted cannon. About the size of a Skinnerz Ironclad

Skinnerz:
Heavy tanks: modular kit
crash pod: Imagine the old round pods but a lot cruder and spikier...
Heavy fighter-bomber: another modular kit allowing you to pick different weapon configurations
Looted vehicles: Most likely based on the Novan IVF. Imagine 2-3 hulls, various turrets and other bits.

Started working on the recon/command/mortar vehicle. It's based on the Dragon Flame Tank's hull. So the kit has two existing bits: the Dragon Flame Tank's hull and the sprue containing the heavy machine gun, flame thrower, and two dozer blades. Then there are two new bits: back component and a weapon sprue. The weapon sprue will contain an autocannon turret, a flame thrower turret, a heavy machine gun turret, and the mortar.

Here some very early WIP pics:

Very early start, still needs a whole lot of work. The back part will probably be turned into 3 parts (two side panels and the floor panel). But it takes some tweaking to make it work.

In the meantime the bunker buster is probably ready:

What do you think?

I think after this the 'hunter kit' (needs a better name) containing the tank hunting heavy laser cannon and bunker busting demolition cannon is ready to be shipped off.

Oh nice touch with the pistons that's different.

Yes please sort the tank hunter and we can put them up next for printing.

As you say we need names, will think on it.
