Welcome to the Pendraken Miniatures January newsletter!

Happy New Year to everyone, we hope you've had a good Christmas and are already getting started on your 2017 projects.  This year is our 25th birthday so we've got lots planned for the next 12 months.

1000 Releases!

We start with a look back at the last 5 years, where we've managed to amass a rather impressive 1000 new releases!  We've had everything from Romans to Zombies in that time with a whole lot in between, so we hope you've found something of use over that period.  If you think you might have missed anything since 2012, all of the release summaries can be found here.

Plans for 2017!

As mentioned above, 2017 is our 25th year so we've got a few things planned for this.  First up will be our new website, plus we'll be holding a couple of sales during the course of the year.  On the releases side of things, we'll be working on a complete Korean War range, a revamped 1860's Italian range, plus we'll have some more vehicles coming as well.  All of the info on our upcoming plans can be found here.

Pricing on Custom Orders

As many of you know, we've always been happy to put together custom orders on request, but we will have to start charging a little extra for this service from now on.  It's only a small premium, taking a single foot figure from 16p to 20p, but it's something we need to do to cover the time involved in these orders.  More info on this can be found here.

Latest Releases!

> Warband Dragonmen & Dark Elves - It's been a while since our last Warband release, but we've now got these two moulded and available!  More Warband ranges will be coming soon as well.

> Ferrets - Not the furry type, more the British armoured car types...

> M551 Sheridan - Handy for the Vietnam gamers and still useful for a couple of conflicts since then, our modern vehicle range exands further!

> T-35 - This Russian heavy tank saw service briefly at the start of WWII and what a beast it is!

A summary of all our 2016 releases can be found here.


The 2017 show season kicks off in a few weeks time with the excellent Vapnartak show in York, always a fantastic start to the year.  If you'd like anything bringing along to this one, make sure to let us know before Sunday 29th January.

We'll be attending 15 shows in total this year, so click here to see the full list.

Minibits Corner!

We've got some great new products lined up for Minibits in 2017 and the first of those is these new 15mm painted buildings from Escenografia Epsilon.  Our first batch of stock includes their Eastern Front range and a selection of their generic products as well.  We'll have more of their ranges with us before Salute hopefully.

Blitzkrieg Commander!

We've made some good progress on BKC over the past couple of weeks, so there's just the scenarios and army lists to be put into the new version, then it can go out to our playtesters for checking.  If we can get the feedback sorted by the end of February, we'll be aiming for a release before Salute and then people can finally get their hands on a copy!  It's been a long process, so thanks to everyone for their patience.

And that's it for this month, we've got a lot of stuff to do before the York show so we'd better leave you to it and get back to work!
