We've added those to the list Dazza.  The stuff we're expecting in the next batch is:

SDKFZ 251/2 mortar carrier
T-26
Churchill Fascine Carrier
Turan
Tank traps

Amazing job on those figs on your site, you should start a thread in the Photo's section as well!

I'd love WW2 French as well...

Some partisans would be good too - maybe some West & some East...although there are, most likely, existing figures which could be used for these - which leads me on to another thought (shared this with Dave a while ago) that there are a number of things which are useable across ranges / periods etc which could do with being either packaged differently - or listed as 'miscellaneous' - in order to make it easier to find them...

An example of this would be GR44: Boxes & Sacks...I *always* add a few packs of those to any order because they're so useful - and not just for WW2 Germans!

I've got a list of these somewhere...I'll see if I can find it.

I believe there are some more French planned somewhere, I'll check on that.  As for Japanese, it's been discussed quite a few times, but it's finding a designer with time on their hands, as ours are currently all busy!

With LOTR, there are a lot of figs that could possibly look right if necessary.  We've got the Halflings which would do for Hobbits, a wizard that would do for Gandalf.  FE11 is the Wood Elf cavalry that look very much like the Nazgul (if you chop the spear off).  The Rohirrim could maybe be represented by the Norman cavalry?  We've got Goblins and Eagles as well.  The Urukhai could prove a problem, I'm not sure if our Orcs would look right?  And the problem is you obviously can't get them sculpted for copyright reasons.  Not sure what else would fit in, maybe someone else can offer some other alternatives?

Partisans / Generic Militia have been requested before, but we thought we'd wait and see how the SCW range turned out to see if this would work?

I've considered before somewhere to provide lists for customers of how different ranges can work for various conflicts.  A good example would be Maximilian, which can be put together from various codes from all over our ranges?

Romanian TACAM-60 and TACAM-2; and 75mm DT-UDR 26 (Resita) AT guns - one of the best in the war, and only from Romania.

Canadian C15TA Armoured Trucks - for when I get around to a Canadian force.

I also would like Russian motorbikes.

Less vehicle oriented -

  o  dismounts for your WWII Soviet cavalry - or soviet cavalry in helmets.

  o  Soviet infantry in pilotka caps.

Title: Tank Commander mod, etc.... WW2
Post by: Dazza on 14 March 2010, 01:20:47 PM
What i would really love to see is for the tank commanders to be made with a plug type fitting.  So you can buy the tank with a plug turret or a commander, you would then plug the turret with the plug with a turret hatch on top or with a tank commander, complete with hatches.   so in theory his waist down is the plug that goes into the turret, makes it more secure........

How about some tank crew sat down idle and drinking cups of tea :)  would be good to see whilst the poor old 1 para guys try in vain to hold a bridge :(

its the personallity figures that actually make up the presentation, gives it more of a varied look. ( peter pig civil war range comes to mind here :) )

1. Officers / observers actually using the binoculars they hold..
2. Paratrooper with his little cart  (as per FOW)
3. more varied poses , like kneeling down with a piat , kneeling down with an SMG, etc  (covers most ranges)
4. possible crew for vehicles (staff cars / jeeps/ trucks/ spg's, etc)
5. Dingy crews, ( paddle powa!! )
6. Personality figures ( its where FoW excels slightly, even though i hate it :) )









Title: World War II Wishlist?
Post by: Paint it Pink on 14 March 2010, 02:28:00 PM
AFAICT the BA6 is just an earlier version of the BA64 you do. The big visual difference is that the BA6 uses the T26B turret, though no doubt there were other differences too, which someone can enlighten us about maybe?

Polish 1939 troops. You can't have a Blitzkrieg without them. Surely some of the Polish battles in those fateful September days were interesting enough to warrant the Pendraken treatment.

And since it pays to be honest I'll admit that I have a particular reason for asking. I want to recreate the life and battles of the 2. Panzer Division (founded in 1935 by Guderian himself) who saw just about every European battlefield of WWII to the exception of Norway and Italy. They participated in the 1939 Blitz in Poland before seeing the French off to Bordeaux and teaching the Brits to swim at Dunkirk. After that it was Greece, Russia, Normandy, the Ardennes and finally the Wacht am Rhein. Plucky bastards. It's Patton what did 'em in, but only in May 1945.

Anyway, can we haz some Pendwaken Polish pweaze?  :-*

Great, Leon. I really hope you guys will consider it worth your while one day. Poland had quite a versatile little army at the time: highly mobile infantry on horseback, all sorts of self-produced tankettes, excellent anti-tank artillery that was more than a match for German hardware. This makes for some interesting what-if scenarios as well. If only they'd had a bigger, more up-to-date air force and the Soviets off their backs that Blitzkrieg might've been a wet petard.

Thanks for the list, I've added all that to our requests.  Have you seen the Laffly 50AM armoured car (code FRE5) that we released in March?

We also have the Sdkfz 221 armoured car (code GR142).
Title: Re: REQUEST : LIST of items
Post by: keram on 19 March 2010, 12:08:17 PM
Yes I ve seen the Laffy armored car but there where few in use in the 1940 french organisation, the most popular is the panhard 178, but I will bought the laffy armored car sooner because I like this kind of vehicule.

Ok for the german 221.

I ve see on the gallery that the us bazooka A16 is a standing man, but I ve bought the same ref and my us bazooka is all but not a bazooka. It look like an big panzerfaust in the hand of big us soldier kneeling. Have you change the ref since or it is an new release ?

Also, for the desert range british army, the SAS jeeps and LRDG Chevrolet with commando LRDG crew ang machine gun.
That will be great for LRDG scénario against italian or DAK troops.

Some Siberian Infantry in Snow suits would be very good, do not need to worry about MMG's or Mortars as these just wore the normal winter uniform and they are already produced.

Title: WW2 BEF Artillery
Post by: Martyn on 16 April 2010, 09:27:18 PM
Is there any chance that when you get round to doing the BEF 1940 you might do the 18/25ld field gun and dragon carrier? I was going to get them from "Pithead" but they appear to have gone bust!

We picked up the BEF figures today at Triples, so I'll take some pics before Salute if I get chance.  I think we're doing/done the field gun, but I'm not sure on the carrier.

Yes that will be great to see the following figures:

- French Foreign legion of the 13 demie brigade (fight in Bir Hacheim and First French Army)
- Tabor marocain and algerien in djellaba and adrian helmet. (Remember Monte Cassino)
- French commandos with colonial helmet
I know you say "you can use us infantry" but not for all. Thos troops are the french exception because of their uniform.

Thanks to think about them.

Title: WWII Bits
Post by: ziparoo on 11 June 2010, 08:28:33 AM
I'm interested in doing Squad Leader (tm) with miniatures in 10mm. To this end I'd like to see broken figures or casualties of the current ww2 infantry ranges.

Poses wouldn't necessarily have to be of wounded chaps - but more like the back of the SL counters, i.e. prone chap with discarded rifle or  holding head in hands etc.

IIRC PBI ruleset also uses casualty markers so there might be some crossover demamd here.
Title: Re: WW2 broken units/casualties
Post by: MooseDontBounce on 11 June 2010, 05:20:04 PM
Good idea.  For BKC, I've just started using dead figures, with 1, 2, 3, etc. on them for hit markers and surrendering figures for suppressed units.

They look better then the tiny dice but sometimes it's easy to forget them.
Title: Re: WW2 broken units/casualties

We've got:

BR143:  BEF surrendering

Hi Leon, i recived my first order of Japanese on Friday and what great little figures they are i look foward to seeing the Tanks very soon.

Now i my be a little greedy but we need some artillery support, high command with a staff car, perhaps a truck and of course those bycicle mounted troops so we can start our blitzkrieg of the Malay peninsular.

Apart from those there will need to be some AA guns and maybe some cavalry, if you are going to do the Chinese and i suppose you could throw in some landing craft just to finish off.
Title: Re: WW2 Japanese.
Post by: Leon on 15 June 2010, 06:45:17 PM
The high command will be done, we'll have to see about a staff car for them.  We're already planning to do a truck and the artillery, including the AA guns.  Not sure about the cavalry and the landing craft at this point, but I'll add them to the list.

Greetings

There was reference to there only being one vote for a Pzkw IIIG.

Note that the 50L42 (more generally known as the 5cm kurz) armed Pzkw III was the mainstay of the German panzerwaffe from mid 1941 to early-mid 1942 in both North Africa and, more importantly, on the Ostfront.

The later Pzkw IIIJ (which I assume is the GR127 "IIIj" in the Pendraken line?) was armed with the 50L60 and is therefore known as the 5cm lang.  This was what armed the Ausf L and M.

The 5cm kurz equipped retrofitted Pzkw IIIE-F (?), the IIIG (~600 vehicles produced Apr40-Feb41) , the IIIH (308 vehicles
produced Oct40-Apr41) and the early IIIJ (482 vehicles produced Mar41-Jul?42).

With the absence of a Pzkw III 5cm kz at present the T-26, T-34 and KV-1 appear not to have one of their commonest opponents during Barbarossa.  There were no 50L60 armed Pzkw III produced until December 1941.

Title: USMC
Post by: Steve J on 01 August 2010, 05:07:47 PM
With the arrival of the very, very nice USMC range, may I be so bold as to request the following items be added to the range as and when time allows?

USMC with Bazooka (firer and loader x 3)
USMC with Flamethrower (firer and assistant x 3)
USMC with Browning MG (normal 3 in a pack)

37mm ATG with USMC crew
57mm ATG with USMC crew

LVT (A) 4 Ronson
LVT (A)1
LVT (A) 4
LVT (A) (note the existing British Buffalo maybe accpetable for this, but would bear further research)

M3 75mm GMC (SPM in Marine parlance)

It may be that some of the above are already in the pipeline or have been requested before, if so, please forgive me for repeating other requests.

Bazooka and flamethrower are in the next batch here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=983.0 (http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=983.0)

I'm sure some of the others will be done at some point.  That'll be it for the infantry side of the Pacific, while we get the Schleswig Holstein range done.  There's still the armour and some artillery planned though.

They were held up a bit due to the designer moving premises.  We spoke to him at Edinburgh though, and he said that he would be getting to them this week for us.  So hopefully, we'll be seeing them very soon.

In the meantime, there'll be some more Marines to keep you busy!

Added the Pz IIIG and the M1/2.  The A9 and A10 are actually on the designers list, so should be done once he gets the Japanese tanks out of the way.

French MG Horse Limber??
French Horse Gun Limber

Hello,
I'm looking for any sort of limbers for our Spanish Civil War 1936.
What I'd like is any sort of horse driven limbers I could put next to our guns. A kind of generic limbers, that will also be use in our next campaign (France 1940)

any idea ?
(when I searched on your site I found LA11 for example, but I didn't guess what period is it..)

I note you have the Centurion already on 'the list'.  Is it possible to add a couple of turret varients - the most popular post war is with the 105 gun and not the 20 pounder.
model A - with 20pdr
model B - 105mm
model C - 165mm AVRE

no decent late Centurion on the market.

Now we have the start of this wonderfull range any chance of a couple of figures in kneeling poses.The great little LMG group lying prone do not really fit in with all the other figures who are standig/advancing. They just do not go well together on the same base.

Also any chance of some field guns and heavy artillery.

Is the German Sdkfz 11 artillery tractor on the requests list?  As my Ostfront 10.5cm leFH18s are towed by Maultiers I hadn't really focussed on this before but the previous 10.5cm leFH tractor - the Sdkfz 6 - ceased production in 1941 or so.  The Sdkfz 11 was the main tow both for the leFH 18 and for the PAK40 and about 9000 were built 1938-45 - albeit there were early and late versions.

What do you think this is a modern motorized army? Your troops should be more than happy to have Maultiers rather than horse drawn limbers  ;)

Did they actually carry all that stuff though? I have read the Wings of the Wind by Peter Stainforth he was an engineer at Arnhem and I do not recall talk of pole charges and bangalores. It may have been they did not have reason to use them and possibly they were used on other operations.

I wasn't sure if the engineers were meant to be Airborne or just general ones.

But if they are meant to be Airborne, then I'd think Satchel charges definitely. The other 2, maybe not at Arnhem but probably for D-Day. The Merville Battery assault had several gliders with very heavily equipped assault troops (though I only think 1 of the gliders made it to the general area of the battery).

Pole charges are home made from sand bags packed with plastic explosives. So dont need to be carried. But these are a generic airborne engineer not just for Arnhem, what about the 6th and their fight across Europe to the Baltic.

I could always get specific and ask for a airborne "Saw" Trailer or maybe a compressor trailer and engineers using warsop rock drill?

Other items carried among others are :
camouflet sets. No not a spelling error.
General wade Charges used for blowing the Orne/Caen river bridges.
Beehive Charges
Ropes
hand Tools
picks shovels etc.....a special drop was organised on D+1 i think to drop a load of shovels and picks.
AT mines.
Folding trolleys
Prima cord, fuses and other stuff that goes bang.
At Arnhem 9x flame throwers per Airborne Squadron/Platoon.

It would also be fun to have, say, Zhukov, Chuikov, Rokossovski, Khrushchev and the "Big Mustache"

Personality figures in general are a nice idea, providing nice looking distinctive command figures even if not in the role of their nominal character.  But every country should have a selction.  You do have some for the desert, which is nice.

personality type figures can enrich a game.  I use 1/148 N gauge civilian figures to represent VIPs and politicians in my bush war scanarios.  Even armed a few city types in suits and trench coats to represent secret service.

But yes, high command and staff officer types have their place on the table.  Gets my vote.

The only downside is that most people will only want the odd pack, unlike rank and file troops.

You could mitigate that a bit by offering paired "front packs" with appropriate personalities for each.  And charge more - individual SYW and FIW commanders are more expensive than standard, I presume for just that reason.

I hope your designer is feeling better.  Did you get any news on the A9/A10 front at Warfare - I forgot to ask on Saturday.

Unfortunately there's been no improvement in his situation.  They think it's something to do with anxiety, but he's going to see a neurologist to see if they can help.  This does mean that he'll be out of action up until at least the end of February.   :(

On a more positive note, we did speak with a couple of prospective sculptors over the weekend, who are going to do a couple of test models for us, so we'll see how they come out.

Have you seen that there are a few river assault bits already - Buffalo, which comes with a waterline version, and fairly recently released rubber boats

There was a lot of fun about my idea of "waterline stuff" ,you know bubbles ect  :)
But I was in fact serious about some ww2 marine things. After watching ABOVE US THE WAVES film I am sure I would like to wargame some harbour special opperations.
What about the X-Craft midget submarine? Nice piece of British history and I think no manufacturer ever made it. This and a generic diver, yes may be waterlined  :) . Bouoys for marking harbour defence nets and harbour searchlights would also come in handy. Anyone else would be interested in such things?

As far as Russian WW2 guns are concerned:

- a Dshk AAMG on or off a truck (I may well convert a Viet Minh one pro tem).
- 76mm M27 infantry howitzer (or possibly M43 on a 45mm AT gun carriage) - six equipped each regimental gun company and some rifle brigades had them as field artillery
- 122mm M30 divisional howitzers to go with the 76mm divisional guns.

I've proxied a Bofors as a stand in for the 37mm M39.  Note that another manufacturer does do the 85mm AA.

The M27 Infantry gun is a new design, not a reworked WWI model, I think. It's different from the Model 10P IG or the WWI field guns. Some similarities, but different shield, barrel and trail.

But as a further incentive, you can use it with Germans as the InfanterieKanoneHaubitze (IKH) 290(r) on all fronts. Some captured in Normandy, July 1944.

Its a Hart/Audax variant, minor revisions mainly to do with the power plant and external fittings etc. On this scale they should all look about the same (or close enough) as it was an evolving design. The single seater Fury is the only one I know of being a pure single seater

Would fit in with the Spanish Civil War range as the republican air force did use a fair number of Hearts/Audax and Demons in the first half of the war. Also If I remember rightly, some fought in the Chaco war.

Am I the only one thinking that a late-war US Sherman should be added? I.e. A M4A3 with the new 47o glacis plate. Preferably all variants, so with 75mm, 76mm and 105mm howitzer. It would be nice to have a version with additional sandbag armour, as well. Versions with HVSS would also be good.

Besides being the version that was used more than any other by the US army, it also has a lot of uses in later conflicts (Korea being the prime example). And it would be a good start if you want to do the later Israeli versions, as well.

I've considered before somewhere to provide lists for customers of how different ranges can work for various conflicts.  A good example would be Maximilian, which can be put together from various codes from all over our ranges?

That would be swell, I`ve been reading a lot of treads and here and there such advice pop up.

From the top of my head, the Ruga Rugas as stand ins for Sudan have had a few pointers, not to mention that several of the packs in the British Sudan Army packs stems from either the Boer or the Zulu line up.   :)

Ofcourse, actual use and production numbers don't always have an impact on a wargamers needs. There are many that like 'what-if' gaming, and it seems to be a bit more popular these days as well.

However, from a sales point of view, I think that 'regular' WW2 kit should be higher on the list. It's what most people will be looking for first. I could be wrong though!

I can certainly see your point, but a Chaffee I can get from at least two other manufacturers (though I am sure not in the same, fine quality I expect from Pendraken  :) ). But as Olden pointed out, there are an awful lot of gamers who do what-ifs, and also in our little niche,  supply can make its own demand. Thus I believe Leon would be well-served to offer up a range of AFVs that are off the beaten track and not available from other makers. But of course, still sell Chaffees!

It is possible that a generic tank crew could be produced.  Overalls and bare headed would suit. 

BTW, does anyone have a picture of the Japanese Baled out crew?  The US team have their distinctive tank helmets on and cannot be mistaken for any other nationality.

See you soon Mart ! :)

Crew members for open-topped SP artillery would be helpful. The vehicles look a bit naked at the moment.

Packs of artillerymen would be good. Leon has done that for me as a one-off but a proper code for artillerymen would be useful - if that's practical. May depend what else is in the mould?

Trimming the bases off to fit in vehicles isn't much of a chore IMHO.

I was after artillery crew as I feel crew served weapons need a few more figures on the base than the two or three they come with but vehicle crew would improve the look of the open topped artillery vehicles right enough.

Having just bought some Boys Anti-Tank riflemen, I note that...

a) They're huge - more like 15mm. Beautifully detailed, mind you, but about 8 foot tall in  scale...

b) They're all prone & firing...

Now, granted, the Boys AT is massive, and giants would be the best gunners. Likewise, prone & firing is the most useful place for them... Nonetheless, some in-scale Boys AT gunners walking & carrying their rifles would be handy... The Boys is so massive & distinct it's obvious the normal infantry don't have them!

And a plea from the heart from my FLGS owner who just started collecting 10mm (by collecting most of my old Pendraken Russkies...), Soviet horse-drawn artillery limbers with crews.

We've considered them quite a few times but the cost of designing bigger pieces like this, combined with the limited sales on them, makes it difficult to ever make the money back.  Never say never, but they wouldn't be high up the priority list.

Soviet Quad Maxim AA machine gun on truck mount. A very common front line unit AA gun, either truck or ground mounted.

It could be made as just the guns on the mount. It can then be added to trucks or used as a ground mounting

Would it be any easier to mould gun, pedestal and crew (or at least shooter) as a piece to go in the back of a truck.

I've seen that approach with weapons/crew for modern Africa "technicals".

Just a very gentle nudge for 3 Men In A Trench... US and Russians.  ;)
US also applicable to Korea and Russian riflemen in Helmets can easily proxy as Italians or even Japanese.

Oh, and Arty Crews!  ;D
