Well we promised you something special and here it is!  Many years ago we had a V1 with a launch ramp, but it was a single piece casting and quite basic so we decided to upgrade it a little bit...!

This new launch ramp is a fantastic bit of work by John at Ironclad Miniatures and has been given an equally outstanding paintjob by the talented Jason Dawson of JAD Designs.  John has based the design on the launch sites found at du Mesnil au Val or Vacquerie Le Boucq.

Comprising of 8 pieces, the resin launch ramp comes in two base pieces along with a ramp, 4 supports and a sentry box.  We've then added a pair of engineers, plus a couple of sentries and a guard dog.  This is a big kit, measuring 330x140mm overall (210mm for the ramp) and would make an excellent objective in your WWII games.  You could add a countdown factor for added excitement, stop the rocket before it launches in turn 6...!  It would of course look just as good as a terrain piece on any northern France tables.

Lovely work but no idea how I would use it in a game. Great for dioramas etc though.

Very cool.

Back in the day I had a plastic Matchbox version, it was just the bunker and the ramp.

Golly!  Applause Applause

I want one! Imagine what Montrose could do with such a thing! The psychological impact alone would be profound! It will need to come with fuel however (and instructions).

I think it demonstrates how adroit Pendraken have become in the use of resin castings.

Two applications of this skill come to mind:

1. Perhaps some boats and small craft in 10mm - the sort Scotia Grendel do in 1/300. 

2. The 1/300 naval market (the Lucrative Seas ?) is buzzing.  A lot of loyal Pendraken customer base dabbles in it.  Room perhaps for a few merchant ships like www.wargamesgazette.com supply for US market?

Do some PoW figures, and those Germans would do for the Escape From Colditz game.

How about a 10mm sloop or brig for .. oh I don't know ... Pirates?

Really? I've got Shermans swarming all over it as the Germans try and launch that atomic bomb at General Patton. (OK, I may have gonbe off piste there, but I think it would make a great objective.)

Superb looking model, through "second sentry" needs to rethink his location.
