Welcome to the June edition of the Pendraken newsletter!

As summer hits and the UK prepares for our five days allowance of sun for the year, we're working on another 50 releases which should be available before the end of the month.

Top 10 Requests!

Before we get to the releases news, we've updated the Top 10 Request lists, so head over and see what's hot and what's not.  We're always taking on board your suggestions, so keep them coming and we'll see what we can squeeze into the design schedules.  Speaking of which, we've also updated the 'What We're Working On' thread as well, detailing what each of our sculptors will be busy with for the coming year.

Latest Releases!

Unfortunately we don't have any new releases to announce just yet, but there's a lot of new goodies on their way.  The new Roman and Gallic ranges are almost done (and I know we've said this quite a lot, but we really mean it this time!) with only 1 production mould left to be done now.  The Napoleonic Prussians have also been prepped and are now sitting happily in the production mould queue awaiting their turn.

Finally, that lovely 19th Century marching band we previewed last month is about ready as well, we just need to do a quick bit of conversion work on the line drummer to smarten him up ready for his new assignment.

In The Pipeline!

As ever, more and more new sculpts are arriving at Pendraken HQ, and this month we've got a set of ECW civilians and engineers to start us off.  These will make great little diorama pieces and are joined by a replacement general for the old EC13 code as well.

Elsewhere, the vehicle revamp ploughs ahead, with the new models of the KV series arriving with us.


The first half of the show season is almost complete, with only two outings left for us before we hit the summer break.  First up we'll be at the annual Durham Wargames Open Day this coming Saturday, so we hope to see some of you there.  Following soon after is the Phalanx show over in St Helens, taking place on Saturday 18th June.  It's too late for Durham pre-orders, but if there's anything you'd like bringing along to Phalanx, please let us know by midnight on Monday 13th.

Website Photos!

We added photos for all of the AWI Germans and French earlier this year, so last month we managed to find time to add them for the American and the British ranges as well.  Once again Andy Mac has done a fantastic job on these for us.  He recently completed the AWI cavalry codes as well, so we'll get those photo'd up as soon as possible.

£100 Giveaway!

As many of you will recall, the Forum hit 200,000 posts last month and to celebrate we gave away £100 worth of goodies to one lucky forum member.  The man with the crystal ball was fred who managed to successfully pin his guess on our metaphorical donkey and wins a whole pile of new goodies.

Pendraken Catalogue PDF!

Finally this month we've uploaded a pdf copy of the latest version of our catalogue, which can be found here.  It's always nice to have a copy you can print off and browse, highlighting all those tempting ranges/projects...  It's also a handy aid for family members come birthday and Christmas time, simply leave your 'Gift Hinting Device' open at the relevant page and let them do the rest!

And that's everything for this month.  Those new releases are right around the corner so keep an eye out for those, and we hope you all get some time to enjoy the sun before it disappears again!
