Welcome to the latest Pendraken newsletter!

Welcome to another round-up of the latest news at Pendraken HQ!

First of all some good news for anyone who has placed an order recently, we're now back on top of the casting and we're dispatching orders within our usual 7-10 days again.

Pendraken Shop!

Our new shop is opening at 10am on Saturday March 26th!  We'll have a wide selection of Pendraken products available, as well as all of the MDF bases, RedVector buildings, Vallejo paints, decals, grasses and scatters, modelling tools, books and more!

We'll be running a 10% discount on everything in the shop during the opening event and you can also pre-order for collection on the day to receive the same 10% discount on your order, using code PENDRAKENSHOP at the bottom of the Basket on our website.  So if there's something specific you need, that we might not have on the shop racks, get your order in to us and we'll make sure it's ready for you to collect on the day.  Finally there'll be some bargain clearance items that we've accumulated during the past 12 months, so keep an eye out for those.

To help us launch the new shop we'll be joined by a couple of local games groups, with Dave Docherty/Old Guard bringing a 10mm ACW game and the Redcar Ironbeards bringing a 28mm Stargrave setup as well.

Opening times for the shop will initially be 11am-6pm Monday-Friday and then 12pm-5pm on Saturdays.

So, if you're in the north-east of the UK and fancy coming along to see what our new place looks like, get yourself along on Saturday 26th!

Painting Competition!

The 2022 Pendraken Painting Competition was a great success and really showed off what is possible on 10mm scale miniatures.  All of the Winners can be seen over on our Forum here.

Cold War Commander 2

A quick update on Cold War Commander 2 to let everyone know that the feedback period is over and we'll be working through the final tweaks/edits over the coming weeks.  All being well the document will go over to the printers by mid-April and the rulebooks will be with us well in time for the launch at the Partizan show on Sunday 22nd May.

For anyone waiting on the BKC-IV reprint as well, we've finally got this sorted out and we should have our stock with us in around 2-3 weeks.

New Previews!

With all of the work going on with the shop there's not been much time for new ranges but we've had a few batches of sculpts arrive at Pendraken HQ ready for moulding:

  • More Peninsular Spanish figures arrived last month with the cavalry and artillery all done.

  • Along with the above, we've had the new Napoleonic ADC's done as well, so these will be rushed through to complete some of the original pledges.

  • For the AWI fans Clib has been adding some more new sculpts with Tarleton's foot, militia cavalry and French generals among them.
  • And finally for the Fantasy fans we've revamped our Beestmen sculpts to give more weapon options/poses and these should be released asap.
