No worries, that's the plan. Hence that I'm going to use the hull of the Novan Dragon instead of the standard hull (Novan IVF Warrior) of which you can see the printed pic above.

Another open backed variant based on the Dragon hull is also in the works, allowing you to turn it into either a recon, command, or light artillery vehicle.

Then I would love to delve into the heavy tanks, maybe a 'second generation' version of the Novan Citadel which will be slightly lighter than its super-heavy counterpart.

But yeah, as you can see here, I still've got plenty on my plate! :D

No point, just stock these, as Vanguard is already stocking the muties from Microworld.

Invest resources in things that are more needed, like completing the Skinnerz range with super heavy crushas and jetpack infantry.

They don't really fit the novan aesthetics whatsoever though (but yes, the MWG ones are admittedly cool) and what's wrong with having options?
Take your skinnerz talk to the correct thread, you! ;) This is for NOVAN talk here!

I'll be using some of the Cybershadows Heavy Cyborgs for my Red Novans Personal Powered Armour (code name "Ogre Suits") units. I think they'll be popular with the Red Novan Commissars, too.

@jimmyzimms, could do some of those but as Markconz says MWG's are doing something similar so do I need to duplicate the work?

@Markconz, Skinnerz will be getting their turn but I want to round out the elites and regulars a bit more first as these models have the greatest potential for the business being the best sellers. Top three new models for the skinnerz will be big crusher, heavy tanks, and jetpack assault troops.

@SpeakerToMachines, interesting idea.

I remember that Abomination Miniatures (who did the gothic ships range) also made some 6mm sci fi ogre models...

Wait, I've only managed to find these, but they are a bit too big I think (10mm scale). So nevermind. :(

Hmm, would love to see some 6mm scaled version of them though. Perhaps something more akin to this. But then again then you'd need to do a complete infantry regiment that matches them. Perhaps you could then better stick to bulky fellows that match your Desert Infantry or Winter Infantry.

Another idea might be to give them a totally unique aesthetic, but it should kinda be determined regarding the background you plan on giving them. Are they genetically upgraded created, so basically have more of a experimental look. Or are they perhaps savage 'sub'-humans that are enslaved, giving them more of a prisoner or tribal look.

malika2 you nail my point exactly. Dumb tribal ferral ogre things are plentiful. I want a high tech gene boosted type. That's what's NOT getting met on the market.

Well, how about the more techy/diver looking ones from that imperial army auxiliary force? They are more close combat oriented though...
