Happy to report that work has progressed on some of the resin pieces that some of you have been looking for these past months.

The Garn Tyrant Assault Unit has been cleaned of all print lines and is being cast now!

picture

The Garn dwelling has also been cleaned of all print lines and is being cast now.

picture

The Doe gunship has been cleaned of printlines and will be cast soon.

picture

The Nova Respublik Cossack (light APC and command/patrol truck) is with the new caster.

picture

Furthermore, the Federal Medium Tank, Heavy APC, and the Horizon/Iquana ATVs are going out to the new caster tomorrow and as his turnaround time is fast I expect to have them cast up expeditiously.

Now all I have to do is find a pro-painter to paint up the Tyrant Assault Unit! It's a spectacular piece, actually more daunting in appearance than even the Dictator ….

Guess it's the tail that does it ….

Good gosh! That Tryant assault unit is awesome! Nice to see an APC for the Feddies. And the Iguana ATV is pretty cool too. Auggh! You are making it sooo hard to hold my wallet in check.

ski206022 Mar 2012 11:22 a.m. PST

Holy Crap! It's going to be an expensive spring….

That Garn Tyrant is awesome! I may have to get one at some point just to put it on the board.
Do you have any scale pics of it or measurements?

Damn, I just got into 15mm and I'm going to need a second job to pick up all the neat minis coming out!

Oh my god my wife is going to hate me. I might have to ship these to my friend's house.

These all look so awesome.

khurasanminiatures22 Mar 2012 11:31 a.m. PST

The Garn assault unit is about 27cm long from nose to tail, just under 11" that is.

andyhalo22 Mar 2012 11:35 a.m. PST

Jon. What can I say but your a LEGEND!
Don`t know how you do it.

warpig6922 Mar 2012 11:35 a.m. PST

hey jon, how's that ol' cane toad coming?

Jojojimmyjohn22 Mar 2012 11:38 a.m. PST

"Oh my god my wife is going to hate me."

Mine too. If he keeps this up, I'm thinking we may need to chip in for protection detail for Jon to ward off the fury of "SHE WHO PAYS THE BILLS".

Great looking pieces!

khurasanminiatures22 Mar 2012 11:41 a.m. PST

warpig, there were some issues with the MDMS vehicles, there are a few residual print lines still in evidence here and there. I am going back and forth on what to do. I am leaning now toward releasing them and letting people know about the residual lines, so that they know upfront they'll either have to clean them up or hide them or, as some people do, just ignore them!

I can imagine my own wife hearing that I'm a legend and just sighing and rolling her eyes. "Yes, he's a legend all right." grin

Umpapa22 Mar 2012 11:44 a.m. PST

Wow, what a Garn beast! I didnt expect it to be such BIG!
Will buy it anyway.

Neo-Sov Gunship and APC are splendid design, my friend will love them.

warpig6922 Mar 2012 11:47 a.m. PST

residual lines … something that could be fixed with a little sanding? if so, I'd say go for it. btw, the cossack also rocks!

Zoids!

Kev134022 Mar 2012 12:14 p.m. PST

Heck Jon, is there no end to it! I'm going to need a second job at this rate LOL!

Horizon and Iguana are going to be first on the list for sure!

Cheers,

Kev

steve atkinson22 Mar 2012 12:16 p.m. PST

Jon ,
those have got to be some of the best models out !!!
I am really looking forward to all the new releases .Steve.

Chef Lackey Rich Fezian22 Mar 2012 12:29 p.m. PST

Good to see them moving toward release. The Fed medium tank is particularly welcome – a good stablemate for the Siler.

Personal logo javelin98 Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2012 12:33 p.m. PST

Wow! Those are great! I love the gunship!

Sloppypainter22 Mar 2012 12:40 p.m. PST

Wow! Just found out my wife is losing her job…this ain't fair. Hmmmmmm…maybe I can sell some in-laws and place an order.

Heeeeeere's Johnny!

blackfang22 Mar 2012 1:18 p.m. PST

Sorry, I don't care much for a mecha T-rex, it's not exactly a novel concept even if it does fit the theme.

Count on my custom for some gunships and probably Iguanas, tho.

john lacour22 Mar 2012 1:35 p.m. PST

the doe is awsome! i'm gonna get a trio of them!

Rick181322 Mar 2012 2:32 p.m. PST

Love the Doe.

darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2012 2:38 p.m. PST

Some great work! Especially love the Doe and medium tanks: will definitely fit in with my 15mm evil schemes.

khurasanminiatures22 Mar 2012 3:01 p.m. PST

No need to apologise, blackfang! I'm nothing if not derivative. grin

Rick181322 Mar 2012 3:17 p.m. PST

Everything cool is just a reworking of something else cool. Law of conservation of cool or something like that.

MiniatureReview22 Mar 2012 4:13 p.m. PST

That Garn Tyrant Assault Unit will go nicely with ACP Games Val-Lyn troopers. Fits them perfectly. Pretty Amazing job there Jon.

The Medium tank really reminds me of the Maatac Terran Monarch Class Tank. I always was fond of it.

Really impressive stuff.

deviantsaint22 Mar 2012 4:47 p.m. PST

Your stuff is the whole reason I gave up N scale Battletech. Now I think I'll go broke just trying to buy the cool stuff you keep putting out. Can you do me a favor a quit releasing new stuff for a couple months so I can get caught up? Well, once you release the zombie stuff that is. Want those like a zombie wants brains…..

El Wombato22 Mar 2012 5:06 p.m. PST

Its like staring into the face of God. And it turns out that hes a giant robot T-rex.

Any word on the Federal "Cormorant" gunship?

Moe the Great22 Mar 2012 5:32 p.m. PST

WOW! My Wife hates you!!! But it's okay she hates me too.
(but only because i give you instead of her my money.)

LordNth22 Mar 2012 6:15 p.m. PST

Heavy APC, Medium tank, Doe and Horizon/Iguana all at the (near) same time?
OMG! Love it!

Etranger22 Mar 2012 6:32 p.m. PST

Good news for me, not so good for my bank account….

sharkbait22 Mar 2012 7:13 p.m. PST

Any insight into the prices of all of the above? I need to save my pennies (or dollars). I really like the Garn Tyrant Assault Unit & the lunar ATVs.

Maxshadow22 Mar 2012 7:13 p.m. PST

Love the Cossack and ATV's!

khurasanminiatures22 Mar 2012 8:20 p.m. PST

Moe, your wife and my wife have something in common!

So do I, but my wallet is whimpering in the corner!

Want a quartet of Does, a quartet of Exterminator APCs (and Exterminators to ride in them!), … hrm… if I'm getting Exterminators I should get Space Demons and Huntarr, and my first (free trader configuration) DPLS.

Johny Boy22 Mar 2012 11:11 p.m. PST

Doe dropship!!!….I'm going to need to of these, do you know what sort of price we will be looking at for these?

It goes without saying,,,brilliant work as always sir..

Wolfprophet23 Mar 2012 4:54 a.m. PST

Wow! Just found out my wife is losing her job…this ain't fair. Hmmmmmm…maybe I can sell some in-laws and place an order.

If yours are anything like mine, you probably won't get much for them.


Its like staring into the face of God. And it turns out that hes a giant robot T-rex.

I seem to recall one meaning of "God" is just anything beyond range of engagement of mere mortals. ;) So. Unless you happen to be carrying some ATGMs, chaff grenades, smoke grenades and limpet mines. The Giant T-rex robot would be a god. Hah!

khurasanminiatures23 Mar 2012 4:55 a.m. PST

I won't know prices on these til I know what the mould and per-casting costs will be.

Moonbeast23 Mar 2012 5:33 a.m. PST

You're killin' me smalls, yer killin' me… Awesome stuff once again.I can't wait to get a Garn Tyrant and call him Grimlock.:)

wminsing23 Mar 2012 6:13 a.m. PST

Hah, I had forgotten all about the Garn 'mech!

Man, with the new NR releases though holding off on getting that force is getting harder and harder. I LOVE that gunship.

If yours are anything like mine, you probably won't get much for them.
Humans are worth more as medical parts, though very young children can go for a decent chunk of change in the right part of the world.

I understand that educated, virgin females (~14yo) sell for about $20 USDk in Afghanistan, but I'm not sure there's an Afghan alive that would want to put up with an American girl.

ski206023 Mar 2012 10:36 a.m. PST

Any word on the Federal "Cormorant" gunship?

I second this… I need some gunship/dropships for my Fed/Terran forces, and would like to see what the Cormorant looks like at least.

I am trying to hold out for it, but your Doe Gunship may replace it. I figure the lowest bidder wins in military procurement ;)

OctaChaz23 Mar 2012 10:52 a.m. PST

The Doe gunship looks amazing. The HIND is my favourite helicopter, and it is the perfect blend of HIND and futuristic dropship. May have to get some for my neo-soviets!

clkeagle23 Mar 2012 12:05 p.m. PST

Since we haven't seen renders of it, it's probably fair to assume the Cormorant release isn't going to be anytime soon.
Why not field something else for now? There are plenty of good options available.

If you like the Cormorant after its eventual release, just assign it to a different force. Or reassign your "interim" dropships and issue the Cormorant to your Feds. :)

Federal tanks and APCs are what I'm getting twitchy for! I was just about to lay down some cash for QRF OF-40s to use as my not-too-recognisable tracked MBT, alongside some Yugo M80A IFVs, but not now.

Stepman323 Mar 2012 3:38 p.m. PST

Medium Tanks are on the list…great stuff. Moe I met your wife, she was a wonderful women as mine is. I just let mine buy new shoes with each of my purchases I make and we're even…

khurasanminiatures24 Mar 2012 7:43 a.m. PST

collins, turnaround on these should be quick, especially as the prints are perfectly clean, no print lines to remove.

Eli Arndt24 Mar 2012 9:19 a.m. PST

Mind if I ask who you had them printed with?

-Eli

ski206024 Mar 2012 10:24 a.m. PST

Gah…. I hope you have a good supply coming. I sense a mad dash to order on your website when this stuff comes in.

Must not order more stuff.. must not order more stuff…
