Getting back at the genetically modified chunky big human soldiers, how about their armour/uniforms match that of the Royal Marines and more specifically their Artillery Crew?

You could then also include some smaller humans with sniper rifles, matching the uniform style of the Royal Marines. The Royal Marines could then be some sort of specialised elites 'organisation' or 'formation' that lends out specific units to the larger Novan military.

Looking at the possibility of doing the arty crews as a new infantry set sometime.

Oooh, a complete regiment? Now that's cool! But what about the genetically modified humans though?

I'd love to build crack mechanised infantry regiment using similar miniatures. Your Royal Marines I'm planning to use as a air assault (paired with Kakapo transport flights & Moa escorts) units as long as they have berets. Picture on your webstore page isn't telling me much. Do they have berets or helmets?

Helmets. To get berets you could go at it with a round file and get a dent of two on the side easy enough when you go to kill the mould line. Throw a bright color on them (ala Givati Brigade or Chayel Hatothanim) and you should be great. Otherwise you're going to have to head to something like the Solar Empire KGB figures instead.

In related news, MD: Make add on sets of kool guys with berets for all your Marine lines! :D

In unrelated news, the Skinnerz infantry are showing in the Tusculum Nova section

Boo, me sad panda :( In worst case, when I finally get to build them, I'll paint the helmets red. I don't know where did you get that KGB from but yes, they are going to be my 'very very distant future' version of Polish 6th Air Assault Brigade (they have dark red berets).

@jimmyzimms, I believe you are mistaken buddy the side bar is just images of current best sellers from all sections of the site.

brother_bethor: KGB= Koolguys With Berets, not the actual organization

moredakka: ahhh you're the best kind of correct: Absolutely! :) Perhaps you need to tweak that CSS as the way it lays out there's not a clear definition (even though the title block is there) as we're looking at the pretty pictures more than reading :D

I've noticed we've almost completed the list from the poll:

  • Main battle tank, a smaller version of the churchillian heavy tank: Done
  • Artillery crews: Done
  • Modular utility vehicle similar to a HUMMV: Done
  • Anti-aircraft mounts for the artillery carriage and truck: Done (bit needed to make the turret work on the artillery hull variant of the Warrior)
  • Expansion to the royal marines range: Nothing yet
  • More heavy tanks similar to FW designs: Nothing yet
  • Self propelled artillery units: Done
  • Anti-tank and bunker buster warrior variants: Done
  • Command and recon warrior variants: On the drawing table

Work can be started on the left over stuff of course, doesn't mean it would have to be released immediately. I can imagine you might want to spread out the releases a bit, and also (re)consider them based on sales.

Some ideas for a next "to-do list":

  • More variants of the Citadel Super Heavy:
    (a) Remove hull mounted mortar and replace battlecannon with an Earthquake cannon
    (b) Variant of the Marksman tank, replace its cannon with a quake cannon normally carried by Leviathans
    (c) Remove hull mounted mortar and replace battlecannon with an magma cannon
    (d) Same as standard citadel, but with a siege cannon instead of its battlecannon
    (e) Variant of the Marksman tank, replace its cannon with a siege cannon and replace sponson laser cannons for flame throwers
    (f) Anti infantry variant of the Marksman, replace cannon with Stalker style twin rotary cannons. Allow it to carry infantry units (40 men if I recall correctly)
    (g) Variant of the Citadel, hull mounted twin linked battlecannons, turret with a heavy battle cannon. Lots of cycling pulse laser cannons that fire in all directions.
  • Various types of landers, both for infantry and vehicles
  • More variants of the Churchillian:
    (a) Replace turret cannon with twin linked laser cannons + hull mounted demolition cannon (maybe the one from the Siege tank kit?)
    (b) Another variant with the hull mounted demolition cannon, replace the turret with 'bunker like' structure that contains multiple HMG's that fire in all directions. Laser cannons in the sponsons
    (c) Heavy artillery variant, replace all weapons for a twin linked archer cannons.
  • More variants of the Centurion:
    (a) Turret with siege cannon + plasma cannons for sponsons
    (b) Turret with anti armor battle cannon
    (c) Light battle cannon turret variant, no sponsons
    (d) Heave plasma cannon turret, no sponson
    (e) Twin automatic cannons on turret, secondary weapons like normal Centurion
  • Small transport vehicle armed with a single automatic gun, can carry 5 infantry. More of an utility vehicle.
  • Unity kit: turn the Centurion and Warrior hulls into utility tanks
  • Genetically modified Ogre like unit

By the way, would it be possible to do a variant of the AA/Rapier turret which would replace those weaponsystems with a quad (or two twin linked) mortars that fire shrapnel to take out large infantry formations?
