Supreme Littleness Designs News

The big news is that the big wait may soon be over! We've all been waiting patiently for the big changes that were prompted by Supreme Littleness Designs' visit to Salute this year. Now we are able to herald the news that that production of the Littleness designs will soon be handed over to a much bigger manufacturing base. This will speed up the delivery of your orders at the same time as allowing new designs to appear more often.

The good news for everyone interested in the sabot bases is that we will make a start with the sabot base ranges. These will be repackaged with labelled variants.

The future, I hope you agree, is exciting – with much more opportunity to expand the ranges!

Octo from Traders Galaxy

Octo

Octo picture 1

Octo picture 2

Octo is the first of the new wave of Atlantican Bots created by King Gills. After the discovery of Omen, King Gills’ knowledge of Bot technology has increased at an alarmingly exponential rate. While Omen still remains the most powerful single Atlantican Bot, King Gills second wave of “mud warriors” are more than just powerful individual Bots.

King Gills extensive studies of destroyer Deceiver carcasses have revealed a new form which allows his forces to meet any threat no matter how large and powerful.

Octo is the key for this new form as he forms the centrepiece of an absolutely massive new entity called Leviathan.

When the Atlantican forces need to inspire fear and dread, particularly when fighting other Bot factions they can combine together into the massive Leviathan. A hulking brute that makes all other Bots look like toddlers.

Leviathan embodies the very image of Poseidon with the destructive capabilities of a small army. Octo commands the other mud warriors forming Leviathan and is primarily responsible for the call to combine. While Omen remains overall commander of Atlantican Bot forces and is essentially a mud warrior himself, the other mud warriors are fiercely loyal to Octo because of the bond formed in Leviathan.

250/4 Observer (could also be used for 250/12)

12mm 3.7cm Pak36 from Butlers Printed Models

One German 3.7cm Pak 36 anti-tank gun. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The Pak 36 (Panzerabwehrkanone 36) is a 3.7 cm caliber German anti-tank gun used during the Second World War. It was the main anti-tank weapon of Wehrmacht Panzerjäger units until 1942. Developed by Rheinmetall in 1933, it was first issued to the German Army in 1936, with 9,120 being available by the beginning of the war in September 1939 and a further 5,339 produced during the war. As the predominant anti-tank gun design in the world during the late 1930s, demand was high for the Pak 36, with another 6,000 examples produced for export and the design being copied by the Soviet Union as the 45 mm anti-tank gun M1932 (19-K) and by other nations such as Japan.

GAZ-39371 Vodnik from

Aotrs Shipyards sells prints direct (contact us via Facebook or email) and takes printing commissions. Aotrs Shipyards also has a webstore on Shapeways.com, a 3D print house which had production and shipping facilities located in the USA and the Netherlands[1].

Aotrs Shipyards Task Force – join thus group to be able to download the direct-print catalogue (beta).

We are dipping into the backlog again this month, due to commissions illness and holidays! So this time we have for you the GAZ-39371 Vodnik at 144th! (Which means I'm nearly out of backlog…!)

GAZ-39371 Vodnik

Direct price: £4.00 GBP
Shapeways price: $6.33 USD (£5.99) link

Photo of Replicator 2 direct version.

The upshot of the commission is that I have got at least 75% of the work on the BMO-T done, so I will be finishing that soonish. However, between holidays, preparation for Other Partizan on the 18th of August and at least one more commission (plus appointments to basically everything!) in August, the August release will once again be delayed towards the end of the month – which will hopefully give me enough time to do something new, rather than empty the last of the backlog!
