We've had some more vehicles arrive at Pendraken HQ, so here's a quick preview of them!  These will be going into moulds later this month and released probably sometime in July.

Starting with WWII, we've had some conversions done on the revamped Sherman models to give us the Priest SPG and a useful Jumbo tank:




And then jumping forward a couple of decades, Mart has been busy working on some more items for our Modern Vehicles ranges.  

First up we've got a pair of self-propelled howitzers, both conversions of the US Walker Bulldog chassis.  The first of these is the M44, adding a 155mm howitzer, which whilst it didn't arrive in time for the Korean War, was used by the US, Britain, Italy, Belgium, Greece and Turkey at various points from 1955 through until 1992.




Secondly we've got the M52, this time with a 105mm howitzer.  This one used an enclosed turret instead to provide more protection to it's crew against both conventional and nuclear weapons.  Again, this vehicle was too late for the Korean War but was still used by both the US and Turkey (under the M52T designation).




And finally we've got a French APC in the form of the AMX-VCI.  This was a variant of the AMX-13 light tank produced from 1957 until the AMX-10P came along in 1972.  There were many different versions of this vehicle made including bulldozers, radar surveillance and mortar carriers, but we'll maybe look at those in the future!  For now we've got three options:

- AMX-VTT with turret mounted machine gun
- AMX-VCI 12.7 with .50 cal machine gun
- AMX-VCI M-56 with 20mm cannon




That's it for now, we'll have more previews coming soon!

What this kit screams  Time out for - is early Cold War figures ..    I know Leon, we differ in opinion on this,  and I respect the fact that its your train set.

Perhaps we should host a Forum referendum - who would purchase at least a Platoon (30+ figures)  + APCs of Soviet infantry + plus heavy weapons (say circa late 1960s to line out against Falklands British?  Smiley

I'd go company strength (100 or so.)

Plus, think of the proxies!

You are right Nobby - my usual table top is three units of various types elite/regular/conscript each about 30 strong - plus APCs and soft tops. - so say about 100 figures + support weapons - ? say £20 for a company size battle group, plus armour plus APC s about £40 ?

I think I'd spend more on the vehicles.

100 infantry, say 10 vehicles; 3 troops armour say 10; recce, artillery, AT, command say another 10. That's about 30 vehicles - nearer £120.

But then again, I like tracks.

And before anyone asks, they don't necessarily all get on the table at the same time.

And before anyone asks - they are ALL Centurions  Smiley

Seriously - all good points Nobby.  I tend to throw reccy units in first -classical  "Advance to contact" and then deploy the "Battle Group"

So yes, £120 -who would match that if early (late 1960s/70s and up to two decades before Timecast range  )Soviet infantry were available from Pendraken ?  10 of us and £1,200 gross - its not just the figures, its the vehicles already on the shelf that would be shifting.

Ok Nobby, let us put the green lids on and think laterally.

Leon wants the next range to be Arab-Israeli Yom Kippur - we think their might be a demand for 1968 era Soviet infantry.

When you get time source a few images of 1968 Prague Spring Soviets - in helmet (not field caps) and skeleton belt order.

Then source us some Syrian infantry from Yom Kippur

We will invite the forum to compare and contrast.   

My theory is that Yom Kippur Syrians will proxy for 1968 Soviet infantry,
