Title: AWI Requests
Post by: Brett1815 on 12 March 2010, 07:35:44 PM
Hello

Any chance of some mounted Generals for the AWI range please? I'm having to make do with Old Glory ones, which is a shame!

Thanks

Brett

Hi Brett

Until they appear many of the 7YW generals and field officers will just about do for AWI types.

Hi Bernie

Yes that's true, but it would be nice to have the real thing, as the AWI range is great and it would just add a finishing touch.

Cheers

Brett

They will get done, but the designer is a very busy guy, so couldn't give you any timescale.

Post by: Bernie on 13 March 2010, 08:07:18 PM
The AWI Range has been missing following command packs for some time:

American line in caps
British in roundabout hats/scruffy campaign dress

Also could do with even 1 pack of American cavalry and of course British cavalry in Tarletons

American Cavalry????? :D :D God bless the 16th and 17th Lancers (Light Dragoons) Todays Queens Royal Lancers

I wouldn't worry about command for the cap wearing continentals, I would have thought that their officiers would have worn cocked hats, along with the drummers an fifiers


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: Jagger on 14 March 2010, 02:20:06 PM
What I would really like to see are mounted commanders that can serve as brigade, division and army commanders.  They are needed for Brits, Americans, Hessians and French.


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: Leon on 14 March 2010, 03:01:31 PM
I've added all these to the list.  The AWI range will have more stuff in the future.


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: goat major on 15 March 2010, 06:23:07 PM
oh yes all of the above please !!!!!!!  ;D


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: clibinarium on 16 March 2010, 10:55:50 PM
All of these will be done, but I won't give a timescale because I don't want to disappoint anyone if its not adhered to.

Not sure about American command in caps, as offciers in cocked hats will do, but I'll certainly consider them.


Title: Re: AWI Mounted Generals
Post by: clibinarium on 16 March 2010, 10:57:38 PM
DEad right Leon, I am a very busy guy  ;)

there does seem to be a bit of a clamour for officers so they've moved up the priority list. No timesacle though.


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: Cornwallis on 21 March 2010, 11:17:12 AM
I know some may have been mentioned, but just to show my interest, I'm missing:

1. Mounted command for Brits, Continentals and Germans
2. British roundabout command
3. British Legion cavalry
4. American cavalry
5. It would be great to see some battlefield accessories by pendraken, such as simple stone walls, accessories for the guns (such as boxes, buckets, tools), wooden barrels, broken down stuff such as a carriage. simple stuff to use and vignettes on the side that makes the battlefield come alive so much more! :)

Thank you Clibinarium for a so far awesome range of AWI. I'm steadily reinforcing my British army and I am hoping to soon move over to some continentals, too!


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: Nicofig on 21 March 2010, 12:12:00 PM
And more french also troops and generals ( Lafayette ...) ;)


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: Leon on 21 March 2010, 11:04:13 PM
I've added these as well.

We've got some hedges which are waiting to be moulded, not sure about walls, we might have some lying about somewhere.  As for random battlefield stuff, there is a code in the ECW range, EC26: Artillery equipment, which might have some bits you could use?


Title: AWI Additions.
Post by: Minenfeld on 26 March 2010, 08:52:08 PM
Hi,

are there any plans to release flank company figures in the British Saratoga range and dismounted Brunswick dragoons ?

Kind Regards.  :)


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: Leon on 26 March 2010, 11:11:37 PM
I'll pop them on the list!


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: Minenfeld on 28 March 2010, 11:25:13 AM
Hi Leon, got some more for you. Saratoga dress firing line, American militia  marching and roundabouts skirmishing/ firing line.

Regards.


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: clibinarium on 28 March 2010, 12:32:53 PM
Flank companies for Saratoga; most likely not, the light infantry probably kept their caps so changed little. Grenadiers; maybe but probably not, if people have two grenadier units AWB 5 + 6, they probably won't want more.

Brunswick dragoons; very likely, but after more of the main types are done.

Saratoga firing line; yes, relatively soon.

Militia marching; AWA17 could be used for these. Might do more in the future for northern militia

Roundabouts firing line; yes, relatively soon.


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: Dazza on 28 March 2010, 12:46:30 PM
any ideas when we are likely to see some mounted command, clibinarium ?

or atleast what you think may be available soon ?



Cheers

Dazza


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: Minenfeld on 29 March 2010, 08:13:47 PM
Upon reflection and after a bit of research, I think there is no need for flank co figures for the British Saratoga range. Apparently the shoulder wings were not raised like the later napoleonic uniforms, but flat. So they can be painted ( carefully ). For my Continental regiments, I intend to use a mix of continentals in uniforms and hunting shirts and militia, all in the same unit. So obviously I would like to use the same poses for all three, hence my request for marching militia.

I would like to see skirmish troops in skirmishing  and march poses, as alot of AWI rules allow these troop types to been in close/loose and extended order.I understand that you cannot cover everything, not only due to the work involved, but to commercial considerations also.

It looks like it's going to be a comprehensive range, great work Clibinarium , many thanks for your continuing hard work !

Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: Cornwallis on 30 March 2010, 05:08:49 PM
May have been said, but british infantry command with round hats (but not the roundabout uniform)
And as I saw earlier said, Marching american militia. (I only use marching line units, the standing ones look prettier individually but awkward on a battlefield with troop movements)


Title: Re: AWI Additions.
Post by: goat major on 30 March 2010, 06:27:55 PM
would it be rude to ask for Mounted Command on every AWI thread ?  ;D


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: oneyed on 16 April 2010, 03:04:24 AM
If I may add my 'tuppeneth'...

Following a recent discussion with Clibanarium over on his yahoo group... apparently this is the place to 'lobby' the powers that be....!

I'd definately reiterate the requests for:

- Mtd Generals (US/Brits/Germans)
- Brit Dragoons in Tarleton (also suitable for Lee's Legion mtd?)
- US Dragoons
- Brit Line Command campaign dress (cutdowns & roundabouts)

...all of which Clibanarium hints at being in various stages of development (ie. already on the workbench)..

To which I'd add:

- French foot command
- French Mtd/Legion horse
- Queens Rangers command
- "Legion" foot ie. in Tarletons (suitable for Brit legion / Lee's Legion...?... not sure these need seperate command tho it would be added bonus!)
- Some gun Limber teams

No criticism intended here in any way.. this range is already stunning... I am just about to put in an order for a whole load of AWI [I've just ordered £50 worth of Clibinariums's Pendraken Late Romans...:-) ].... if you consider the usual limited choice offered elsewhere IMHO there is absolutely nothing to match these AWI figs below 28mm in terms of character, quality of sculpt and the extent of the range already... any additions would make it really comprehensive... and I've seen a lot of extremely positive comments online... surely a few further additions would truly be the icing on the cake and would serve to make this a very popular (and one assumes, commercially viable) range of figures!

And to top it off... Clibinarium also hints that as far as he is concerned this range is only about 2/3rds complete... now that is really too much!

Any chance some of these could be bumped up the list of priorities.....?

Very best wishes,

Mark


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: goat major on 16 April 2010, 07:59:33 AM
can i re-reiterate Mtd Command packs and British Cavalry in Tarletons please  ;) does it have more effect if i keep mentioning at every opportunity ?  :)

Mark - re Legion infantry in Tarletons. Some discussion on the British Grenadier forum seems to suggest that there is no evidence for the infantry wearing Tarletons  - you can pretty much justify any headgear you want. I've just painted up normal British LI in Legion Colours to get me going. Of course if we did get the Tarletons then i would struggle to resist!!


Title: Re: AWI Command Packs
Post by: oneyed on 16 April 2010, 02:31:05 PM
Goat Major - thanks for the follow up comment - I appreciate its grey area that one - I'm sure that particular debate will range for many years still to come.... and regardless of the debate, people still seem to want them!  :)

I was just thinking along the lines of 'wish lists' that it might be vaguely justifiable for one pack of foot (including command in same pack?) in Tarleton headgear... which at a push might cover Brit/Lee's Legion and maybe even dismounted 16th light dragoons (if you clipped off the bayonets?) ....

Cheers,

Mark

British General has horse shot from under him, no horses left in the America's :(

Any chance of some ragged/ Valley Forge type continentals ? Cheers.


Title: Re: AWI Continentals.
Post by: Leon on 20 May 2010, 06:47:15 PM
I've popped these on the list.  There'll be some more bits for AWI, but the designer is working on a LofA range at the moment.


Title: AWI Dragoons
Post by: Steve J on 26 June 2010, 09:36:48 PM
Just wondering whether there are any plans to produce some American Dragoons, both mounted and dismounted in the near future? Alternatively, are there any other figures from the existing ranges that could be used?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated  :).

good call Steve - especially Cavalry in Tarletons


but.....stay focussed - have you voted for mounted commanders ???? http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=724.0 (http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=724.0)

I'm sure they will be done, after the Mounted chaps though!


Title: AWI packs
Post by: maciek on 23 July 2010, 08:43:00 AM
I know, that Clibinarium is busy with LOA, but I would like to know if there are any AWI packs planned for future.
Comparing Pendraken line with Perry's, it appears that some gaps still exist in your line.
- mounted officers  ;)
- cavalry in tarletons
- British infantry commands in "later than 1776" uniforms
- British artillery in shorten coats
Do you plan some of above in foreseeable future ?

Just the mounted officers for now, Clib would have to tell you about the rest.


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: Dazza on 23 July 2010, 03:19:12 PM

Lets not upset him too much, we'll take the Mounted Officers for the moment then bug him again afterwards for tarletons :)

this LofA is way over-rated, AWI far more entertaining :p




Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: goat major on 23 July 2010, 04:12:06 PM
i'm agreed that Tarletons is the next campaign. Lets wait till we see the whites of the eyes on those commanders and then unleash drang nach Tarleton....  :D


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: clibinarium on 26 July 2010, 04:58:35 PM
All of those are on the "to do" list, though cavalry will be a bit further away as the horses need a bit of retooling to make them a bit more robust. The infantry types will probably be done before the end of the year.


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: goat major on 26 July 2010, 05:16:35 PM

Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: Dazza on 26 July 2010, 06:39:14 PM
Clib, would it be possible for you to list what you feel is a rough guide to what ur planning next for AWI, with no timescales attached so we have an idea what is coming up. 

Also gives me an idea if to drop back on my WWII for a while, whilst we wait for more AWI figures :)

cant beat advance planning :p

Cheers

Dazza


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: clibinarium on 26 July 2010, 06:59:30 PM
Well as I mentioned more cavalry (apart from the mounted officers) will be a while away. My priorities for the end of the year will be to round out the missing command figures, like those for the saratoga British, the French, and a few bits for the Americans. I will add some totally new troops if I have time, but I am not saying what in case it doesn't come off.

If there are things you need, and other people want them too, I can give you a yea or nay, or possibly move them up the list, but I can't promise anything in case I can't fulfill it.


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: Dazza on 26 July 2010, 07:17:57 PM
ok here goes :

Hessian Mounted Officers (like AW99 @ Perry's)  and maybe a Scottish Mounted Officer also.

Interrogation set (like AW100 @ Perry's)

British dragrope teams

American dragrope teams

British / American Limbers ( 1 and 2 horse )

and then when time permits later : a pack for all nations depicting the "French high command" pack at Perry's (AW147)

ok cant think of anything other than whats already been asked for :)



oh I forgot,  how about a blindfolded prisoner so I can pretend its MEL GIBSON and put him in front of a firing squad :)

Post by: republic of tolworth on 26 July 2010, 11:03:47 PM
Love to see all of the above 8)

But as it is a wish list...

Ameranids with close quarter weapons as well as muskets.

'Brawling' infantry useing muskets as clubs, swords and hatchets.

AWI civilians.

'Shattered' inf. wounded or in shock. Useful as disruption and casualty markers.

Cheers.


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: goat major on 26 July 2010, 11:04:24 PM
If the cavalry are delayed then infantry in Tarletons (to use as Legion troops) would be cracking !

Guards in authentic southern campaign dress would also be something special !

Cheers and thanks for the generals !

Simon


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: maciek on 27 July 2010, 02:15:05 PM
OK. guys,
all those civilians, dragrope teams and "interrogation scenes" sound interesting, but IMO there are not indispensable, and can be delayed.

And what is indispensable ?
- British command in roundabouts or/and cutdown coats
- American standing commands in coats and hunting shirts - now one cannot do properly looking american "firing line" because only available command are ont the move.

IMO above is most important thing to do.
Even more important than French and cavalry in tarletons.


Title: Re: AWI packs
Post by: goat major on 27 July 2010, 02:25:35 PM
Maciek - thought you had decided that AWI was too boring  ;) :D


Title: Re: AWI packs

Contrary - I found it very interesting.

How can I do a regiment, that lacks command ! It would lead to another Trenton, I'm afraid  :)

What's indispensable if a subjective thing depending on campaign and style of play.

For me command bases obviously along with mounted command (yay! ;D)

However such things as I mentioned previously such as Ameranids is pretty indespensable to the games I will play, but that's just me ;)

Must say those officers do look mighty fine to me.

Back to the cruel mistress that is the paintbrush :)

I'm glad to see you got british in roundabouts, even the same with blanket roll, which is very cool, but you only got them in march pose, not charge or firing,

I'm sure it's comming, and guess I should be happy with just having them in campaign dress.
