Vasseth Strike Tank at Loud Ninja Games 15mm range

Our partners at Alternative Armies just posted an update on the excellent Chuhuac Vasseth Strike Tank.

In the month plus since the temporary retiring of the Vasseth Strike Tank we have been getting ready for today's announcement that the Vasseth is back! Re-mastered from the original parts and now with a single piece hull it is once more front and centre in the Loud Ninja Games 15mm range. Go HERE for the whole range or read on for more information.

There are two codes for this vehicle RAP027 for one and RAP027P for a platoon of three. The platoon offers a 5% saving over single purchase. Until the end of June 2020 we have taken 10% off both codes (meaning 15% off the platoon) as a treat. Discount is on screen already. Enjoy!

The Vasseth is a nimble anti-gravity or GEV tank which can be outfitted with a scout load out as was battlefield plus projectile and fire support roles. It has a crew of two and these Chuhuac are masters of the tankers trade. Often running ahead of the Sirrus armoured personnel carrier and battlesuits it softens up the enemy.

Loud Ninja Games 20% Discount Offer Reminder

Hey folks,

With the end of the LNG product promotion coming up at the end of this coming Friday (2/7/19), I wanted to post really quickly and thanks folks for the orders we have received so far as well as, and just as importantly, the feedback and ideas that have been shared. 

It is clear that there is a lot of love for our products and I do hope to be able to use these ideas as a map for future products. While not every idea may be used, there are still plenty of good solid suggestions with many being drawn from the rich lore that I like to put behind each of my alien races. Most popular seems to be the Ikwen and I cannot say this surprises me as they have a very evocative and deep background to be explored. 

With suggestions for existing ranges still pouring in (keep them coming) i would also like to say that this is also a great time to suggest or request new ranges. There is a lot more that could be done outside or to compliment the existing, Chuhuac, Yan'drassi, Iken, and Wasteland ranges. Do you want new aliens? Are there other settings and genres you would like to see explored? Looking for fantasy? Supers? Let us know. We are always listening. Even after the sale is over, your ideas are always welcome.

You still have today and tomorrow to get your 20% off discount on LNG minis so get them while you can. Whether you are starting a new force or expanding on an old one, it's a great time to grab some LNG goodness. Find the sale - HERE

Take care and good gaming,

Loud Ninja Games - An Introduction to the Tavshar Archon 15mm Mechas

Loud Ninja Games will be releasing in late November though brand new codes at the core of which are the fantastic Tavshar Archon mecha in 15mm scale. This article by Eli Arndt gives you an introduction to the concepts and story behind the mecha and how they came to be. The sketching here was done by Sam Croes who is a big fan of LNG and who has also painted up an Archon too. See Loud Ninja Games HERE. Take it from here Eli...

The Story of the Archon
The Yan’drassi (YD) Archon mecha started out as an idea for how to add some heavy firepower to the existing YD range. So far, the range includes several infantry option and a light vehicle that has some firepower but not enough to take the fight to an opponent’s medium to heavy vehicle. While tanks and other vehicles are definitely in the realm of possibility for the YD, I felt the first release since the Kickstarter really needed to make a statement and mecha certainly make a statement.

For the design, I contacted sculptor Sean Bullough who had sculpted the original Yan’drassi range and who I knew was a huge anime and mecha fan with a broad frame of reference for the genre and various design aesthetics. I had seen his work with ClearHorizon miniatures first Kickstarter and the great work he had done on their mecha design and so I was confident in his ability to deliver a quality model. 

This is one of the first projects I have done where there was no concept art. Sean and I talked about design elements I wanted and drew mostly from references drawn from other existing mecha. The process was a lot of back and forth with me giving some design points and sending and image and Sean sending me his own thoughts and additional reference ideas. Sean has a vast collection of mecha pictures that he was able to draw from so we quickly found our stride in design process. For me, the key was to make a design that looked like it fit in with the existing Yan’drassi aesthetic. This meant rounded shapes. As the Archons are piloted be the YD’s elites, the Tavshar, I also wanted the Archon to resemble the Tavshar Primes. This second element meant making them look like a warrior’s armour as much as a battle ready machine. 

For weapons, I wanted the Archon to have a good number of choices. I wanted all versions of the Archon to have missile support so a pair of vertical launch missiles pods was added. The original three weapon options were a basic Shredder rifle, a sword/shield combo and the powerful, lance-like Singularity Cannon capable of launching micro black holes across the battlefield. After these the model had been molded and Gavin and I started talking about release plans, it was decided to add an additional three weapon options to the Archon to provide greater depth and variety to the design. These new parts were designed by Sam Croes and would include a new more powerful Plasma Rifle, a missile launcher version with several add-on missile pods, and a massive Ripper Cannon with an attached combat blade. This brought the total options to six, making the Archon a versatile and unpredictable opponent. There are six different Archon mecha single codes.

The final model does including a lot of individual parts, regardless of which weapon configuration you choose. This was a by product of trying to minimize the number of individual parts that needed to be made, allowing us to then re-use many parts by making the model mostly poseable. This makes the Archon a more advanced model and one that will take a bit of attention with a fantastic reward.

So, where does the Archon fit into the Yan’drassi force structure?
Archons are elite war machines, piloted by Tavshar that have reached the rank of Prime and shown their prowess in battle above other Primes, making them the elite among elites. Archon is not only the name of the mecha but also the new rank of those who pilot them. Each Archon selects its weapon load based on its mission or sometimes the preference of the individual Archon where command edict does not override personal choice. A mix of weapon types is common, allowing Archons operating in force to counter unexpected threats. Archons are most often tasked with providing heavy support to lesser troops alone or in small groups, but may be used as strike teams by themselves. 

For general combat Shredder Guns and Plasma Cannons, supported by Heavy Ripper Guns are the most effective, combining withering fire with powerful long-range plasma fire. For heavier targets Singularity Cannons and Missiles are best. On the rare occasions, where assault in necessary, there is nothing better than the combination of a powered blade and shield for wading into enemy formations. 

We hope you enjoyed this read and you can find Loud Ninja Games range HERE. There will be one more big article on the Tavshar Archons which will show you all the codes, the poses, the bundles and reaction forces which are being released late November.

Ikwen Scenery Released

Kwiell is the home world of the Ikwen. Having once been covered in a shallow sea, the Ikwen home world still shows signs of this ancient past. Towering mineral vents pierce the crust of the planet, venting strange, nutrient and mineral rich materials into the atmosphere. Much of the aquatic life of those ancient seas has adapted to life exposed to air and all manner of strange plant analogues cluster about the rocks and vents. These vents are the source of the strange bio-silicates that make Kwiell desirable for exploitation by off worlders but it is this same life-giving material that fosters life in an otherwise desolate landscape. The Ikwen utilize the terrestrial reefs that grow around these vents as sources of food and medicine. 

We are happy to announce the release of our first terrain pieces. Designed to represent the alien scenery of the Ikwen home world of Kwiell, these metal and resin bits are perfect for breaking up any science fiction battlefield as well as adding accents to bases and other pieces of scenery. They are now up for sale on the site HERE

"The Ikwen are one side of an asymmetric war against a higher tech, invading enemy. They fight in a less organized, militia style, utilizing acquired weapons, not of their of own manufacture."

Over a generation ago, the planet Kwiell was set upon by aliens bent on exploiting the natural resources of the planet. The planet’s native population, the Ikwen, found themselves suddenly enslaved and their society rocked as they were enslaved, put to work and in many cases hunted and killed. The Ikwen have spent decades in frustrated servitude to these invading overlords. We see them as very much freedom-fighting indigenous life forms, use them as alien invaders, allies, mercenaries or even lower tech indigenous forces for more organized warfare. 

We have four different Ikwen packs for you to choose from and you can see them HERE.

RAP016 Ikwen Assault Rifles (6)
RAP017 Ikwen Rocket Launchers (6)
RAP018 Ikwen Light Machine Guns (6)
RAP016P Ikwen Platoon Pack (Save 5%) (24)

Some of you may be curious to see how the Ikwen match up with these new terrain pieces. Well wonder no more! Here is a scale photograph of an inked Ikwen miniature next to the new terrain.
