Righty then folks, it's here!  There's been a load of interest in the Korean War for some time now, so with the help of Sunray we've put together a master list for everyone to have a look at.  We've also added a poll so that you can place your votes for which ranges you'd be most interested in buying. 

So, once you've had a read through, what we're looking for in terms of feedback is:

- Are there any specific uniform details, beyond what we've got listed?
- Do folks want any flamethrower figures?
- Any satchel charges for nations other than the Chinese?
- Any further heavy weapons / artillery pieces we need to add?
- There currently aren't any winter Chinese, as they can be proxied from the other nations.
- Does anyone want other command figures, standards / musicians, etc?
- We've got an idea of the few vehicles that need to be done, but feel free to list those as well.
- Any other general queries/requests?

Other than that, if anyone has any good pictures or weblinks for useful information, pop them up as well!  Phil will be starting work on these towards the end of this year and we're looking at around a 9-12 month sculpting schedule for the 100+ sculpts that need to be done.  Any vehicles will be done separately be Mart.

Hello Leon

With the Chinese are you envisaging uniform like this (which can be easily transported back 20-30 years Smiley ):-



or only ones like this:-



Will I have to wait for my winter (uniform) of discontent Smiley to get warlord proxies?

Only other thing I can think of is maybe a Chinese/Korean bugler and/or standard bearer for local colour?



Cheers

I've added those to the list, so we'll have the winter kit as well.

I've added a bugler for the Chinese.

American -  BAR advancing
British 3 mortar
North Korea and Chinese 82mm mortars, Bugles, advancing DP LMG

I've added the US BAR figure, plus the 82mm mortar and bugler for the Chinese.  The Koreans now have the DP LMG advancing and we'll have a think about the other mortars.

I would hope to use the Summer Chinese for WWII through to Korean War!

Is a RCL needed? (Wanted - "yes"- but needed?")

Also my hazy recollection of Korean War memoires suggests that there were Chinese and/or North Korean units armed predominantly with the Burp gun. I am prepared to be wrong on that, but certainly, in my head I see waves of SMG and grenade toting Communists.

Could we have a little more variety in the Red SMGs?

(I may have mentioned on this forum my disdain for a) kneeling b) firing and c) prone figures, and would happily swap one of those for a "SMG - Advancing" figure.)

As for vehicles, I don't think there is a massive amount needed.

M75 and perhaps Oxford carrier. These, though are just icing. The bulk of Korean War vehicles are already covered or in the pipleine.

Unless you're of the "But on that particular Sunday there were 3 Mk17's with the square hatches deployed on a parade ground in Seoul which could possibly have got dirty if there had been a massive Communist attack a la Tet Offensive" brigade.

This is a major commitment by Pendraken. An ambitious range of figures.  There are ones that excite me - the RoK in caps and light order have a limitless scope for painting up as Third World African/Latin American bush war figures. Even US WW2 rear echelon !  The KPA in summer gear are not far behind in terms of Soviet sphere applications.

41 Commando in US kit/weapons with berets ! Wow ! That meets a lot of early NATO requirements  until the 7.62 FN arrives. .
My "John the Baptist Act" got 3,000 + hits and generated good discussion. I have prepared the way for the Dark Lord  Any comments on Korea post there here.

The Pendraken Korea range is no longer a rumour - its happening, and we have lived long enough to see it !

A tour de force, Friend Sunray.

You are to be congratulated on your Autumn Push.

Now, while Pendraken are working on those, may I interest you in some chariot armies?  Tongue For truly it is written that the followers of the Dark Lord and an ungrateful lot, who are never satisfied.

This range does offer so much - a bridge between WWII and the Viet Nam/Falklands ranges.

Right Techno. Stuff them burks in the pyjamas with the stone tennis bats, get on with some proper work.

First pics by next Friday?
