Sorry, when I said "are you going to unveil your plans for 2021", I was politely saying "do it now, I neeeeed to know."  :-[


Fingers crossed for more Castle Arts, Amazons, Arab-Israeli and I'm sure there are some Centurion variants that haven't been covered. (I have a list.)

Not to mention the Fomorians  ;D
been waiting nearly as long for these as photos  :o

P.S. outstanding work this year for all you have achieved.
the photos alone was a massive task.
but stepping up with the facemasks in a time of need. Is in my eyes more of note.

As you say "just surviving as a business has to be taken as a win this year", a definite win  :-bd =D> :-bd =D> :-bd

You've neglected to mention the 6,000 PPE visors you produced at a time of great need

So much more than just surviving, helping the community and expanding the business with additional ranges and new supplements

All at Pendraken should be incredibly proud of their achievements in this peculiar year

What Paul said!

I'm always impressed / stunned / surprised at the shear amount of projects you try and achieve in a year - and that is a normal year, not 2020.

It's interesting to hear that without shows you have had time to do other activities (such as website photos) - might be worth a review of time vs benefits of some of these things to see where best to focus your limited amount of time. To me it would feel that getting things into production that have already been sculpted has to be at the top of the list, as these are things you have spent money on, but only need a little effort to get them to generating sales.

Fingers crossed for more Castle Arts ...

That would be good. Especially the arch and bridges, let alone the actual castle

Most of those things are on the list (except T'ang I'm afraid Kitty!) so we'll be getting to them.  There's potentially some stuff happening this year which should help us speed up a lot of the processes.

It's OK. I'll wait until everyone's gone before I start crying.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

Hmmm, Leon didn't deny the T'ang report. Interesting....


OI! You've had your Meso Americans your not allowed another selection until Leons a Granded (might not be that long the sped they grow up)  and I have been patiently nagging for ages and ages for the armored train.  :)

A very positive approach to a run of very negative events in this year.
