Rules!

We are extremely happy to announce that the first set of official Pendraken rules, Warband, are now available as a hardcopy on our website, priced at £16.00: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Rules-sc320/ and for those who would prefer to buy a pdf copy, these can be bought through the Wargame Vault website here, priced at £10.00: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/144517/Warband-Fantasy-Rules



Written by Steve Hardy, Warband provides all the rules you need to bring great battles between fantasy armies to your tabletop.

Using miniature figures and terrain, you can fight battles from the glorious sword and sorcery epics you've read about.  
You can play games against your friends or competitive battles against worthy opponents.  Whilst the rules have been written with the 10mm Pendraken Miniatures ranges in mind, there's no reason why you can't use other scales as well!


For more info on the rules, check our original announcement here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,11260.0.html

There is also a FAQ thread up and running here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,11265.0.html


Figures!

As well as the rules, we have also now released our first two revamped Fantasy ranges, with the Goblins and the Hill Dwarves now available!

These new ranges are huge improvements on the old ones, adding not only new sculpts but also more variety to every pack.  So much variety in fact, that a pack of foot now contains 25 individual figures, each one different to the last.  From different weapons and headgear, down to added cloaks, beards and pouches, we've gone for maximum variation within every single pack!

The new ranges include:

Goblins - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Goblins-sc324/
FAN-GOB1 - 25 x Warriors
FAN-GOB2 - 25 x Archers
FAN-GOB3 - 12 x Wolf-Riders
FAN-GOB4 - 5-man Command Group
FAN-GOB5 - 4 x Shamans with runestone
FAN-GOB6 - 4 x Bolt-shooters with crews
FAN-GOB7 - 3 x Giant crossobows with crews
(packs are £4.50 each, command/shamans are £1.50)

Army Pack: Contains 3 packs of Warriors, and 1 pack each of Archers, Wolf-Riders, Command, Shamans and Bolt-shooters, plus 8 x MDF bases.  Priced at £27.00




Hill Dwarves - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Hill-Dwarves-sc323/
FAN-HDW1 - 25 x Warriors
FAN-HDW2 - 25 x Shooters
FAN-HDW3 - 12 x Noble Riders
FAN-HDW4 - 5-man Command Group
FAN-HDW5 - 4 x Wizards with runestone
FAN-HDW6 - 25 x Berserkers
FAN-HDW7 - 4 x Cannons/Bombards with crews
FAN-HDW8 - 3 x Gyrocopters
(packs are £4.50 each, command/shamans are £1.50)

Army Pack: Contains 3 packs of Warriors, and 1 pack each of Shooters, Noble Riders, Command, Wizards and Cannons, plus 8 x MDF bases.  Priced at £27.00

We've put some bare metal pics up onto the site for now, but those will be getting replaced with painted pics very soon.




Bases, Movement Trays and Gaming Aids!

As well as the rules and the figures, we've got a range of extra bits and bobs to help your games along!

The recommended basing size is 100x50mm bases, which are available in packs of 10 for £2.  The ruleset allows you to use other base sizes of course, but we've also got a range of movement trays available for those wanting to use their existing armies: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Bases-Movement-Trays-sc321/, priced at only 50p per movement tray.  (If you need a different tray size, just drop us a line and we can cut it as a custom job for you, no problem!)




As well as those, we've also created some handy tokens for tracking the hits on your units.  Available in both circles and semi-circles (for placing neatly up against the back of your base), these come in packs of 25 tokens, which should be enough to cover both sides in a game of Warband.  20mm circles are £2.50 per pack, the 30mm semi-circles are £3.00 per pack: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Gaming-Aids-Tokens-sc322/





And finally, all of the units in Warband rely on their Morale to stay in play.  If it loses all of it's morale, then that unit will rout and is potentially out of the game unless you can save it!  One handy way of recording the morale of each unit is by using our trusty dice frames to keep track of it: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Warband-Fantasy-c36/Gaming-Aids-Tokens-sc322/  At only £1 for 10 pairs of dice/frames, these are a great help and you can also see these frames in use in the images within the rulebook.




I think that's everything then!  Many thanks for reading, there'll be lots more new and revamped Warband ranges to come over the next few months, so keep an eye out for those!

Buy plenty of Matron's sculpts now!

If he keeps using the chainsaw, the value of his work will soon go up.

They are, wonder how difficult it would be for Leon to customise the writing for other games?

Hit markers look like a must - and not just for Warband.

Yeah, I'm hoping they can bang out some of the semi circular ones for Warmaster numbered 1-12

Yep ditto
something along the lines of fired/disordered etc would be fab too :)

My copy of Warband arrived this morning, well happy with it!

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated!  On the token queries, we can put anything on them really, so if people want something else written or a different set of numbers, the best thing to do is pop us an email. 

The etching is surprisingly heavy on the laser though, I was surprised at how long it took in the machine, almost half-an-hour for two packs of tokens.

Is that's because it's in "bold?"
