Welcome to the Pendraken Miniatures newsletter!

With the second half of the show season kicking into action this month, there's busy times ahead at Pendraken HQ, so let's get straight to it...

Latest Releases!

> New WSS/FPW Flags - We're continuing to expand and improve our flag ranges, so this month Tony Hughes (of Tiny Tin Troops) has been working on some replacement WSS sheets, whilst Mig has designed some excellent new French and Prussian flags for us.

> New brick walls - The sales of our new stone walls and hedges have been excellent, so we've now added some brick walls as well, in both low and high varieties.  We'll be adding some damaged versions of these in the coming months as well.

In The Pipeline!

We've not had a lot of new sculpts through this month but there are some new releases on the horizon:

- The next two Warband armies will be released before the end of the month, with the Dark Elves and Dragonmen hitting the website very soon!
- For the post-war fans, we've got the Ferret armoured cars all moulded and ready for release.
- The previously previewed ECW additions will be making it into the moulding queue soon.
- We've got a couple of new French cavalry codes ready for release in the coming week or so.


The show season is back in full swing and we had good days at both Border Reiver and down at Colours.  Next up on the calendar we've got:

> Worlds at Derby - This 2-day show takes place on the 1st/2nd October and is one of the best on the circuit so definitely worth a visit.  There's only a day or so left to get your pre-orders through to us for this, so make sure to let us know what you need by the end of Sunday please.

> Skelp in Forfar - One of the smaller shows on the circuit but always a friendly day out.  The show is on 15th October, so pre-orders for before Saturday 8th please.

> Fiasco in Leeds - We'll be heading down to the Royal Armouries on Sunday October 30th for this one, so get yourselves there!  Pre-orders will need to be sent through before Sunday 23rd please.

> Crisis in Antwerp - As with last year, we won't be attending this show ourselves, but Ian at Eagle Figures has kindly agreed to take any pre-orders along to the event for us.  So, if you'd like to order anything to collect at the show, drop us an email and we'll get that sorted out for you.  Payment will need to be made in advance on these orders.

Blitzkieg Commander!

'How's it going?' and 'When will it be ready?' have been the themes of the past two shows, so it's probably best to give everyone another update on the rules.  We had the revised text through to us before the summer, but some of the initial feedback felt that it was possibly a bit too different to the original BKC.  So, we've been going through the two versions and working some of the new changes into the original text, to give us something that is still BKC whilst updating it where necessary.  This process is almost complete (around 80%) and then we'll be asking a wider group for feedback on this draft.  All being well, we can then finalise the text and go to formatting/layout.  We'll keep people updated as we move along with this.

Battleground Show!

Preparation for this year's show is coming along nicely, with most of the traders confirmed and an excellent selection of games booked in.  Next weekend's Derby show is the final deadline for traders to confirm, so we'll have a final trader list ready shortly after that.  We'll be continuing to update both the Battleground website and our Facebook page, so make sure to keep checking those.

And Finally!

And finally this month, we'd like to congratulate Ian of Eagle Figures on his wedding!  We were lucky enough to be a part of his day, so everyone here at Pendraken would like to wish Ian and Julie all the best for their future together!
