[COMMERCIAL] Pendraken & Minibits Releases 2021!
« on: January 10, 2021, 07:29:31 PM »
After what was clearly a rather different 2020, many of our plans didn't quite work out and you'd think that maybe we'd try and tone it down for 2021... but why would we want to do that?!  Full steam ahead with maximum shiny!

We'll list all of our releases in this one thread, both our 10mm Pendraken items, and our wider wargaming Minibits and third-party stuff.  We're producing new stuff for all periods, scales and genres these days, so make sure to check in and see what we're up to!

There's a review of 2020 on our Forum here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,20368.0.html and we managed over 200 releases which can be seen here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,20371.0.html

And this year we've got even more planned so come and have a read through our optimistic plans for 2021: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,20415.0.html

And now on to our first releases of the year!

It's our first release of 2021 and also a long-awaited one as the Guard have arrived!  We'd had these sculpted a few years back but they were lost in the void known as 'Sculpting Drawer'...  But they're here now and ready for deployment against those pesky Brits!

Two quick notes on these, obviously the Guard were present through until 1815 but we've put them in our 1809 French range for the timebeing, with their earlier descriptions.  When we add an 1815 French range in the future they can be moved over to there.  Also, the Young and Middle Guard wouldn't have been issued with Eagles and would have bare poles with fanions instead.  As we don't currently produce those we've left the eagles on for the timebeing and folks can simply snip them off if they're going to make their own flags.

We were going to save these for the next batch of Fantasy releases but I know that a lot of people have been asking for them so I thought I'd pop them out as their own release instead!

The original Night Orc sculpts have been tidied up a little and then Techno has added a few extras to give us 3 spearmen and 3 archers, combined with a leader for both packs.  These were always a popular little range so it's nice to have them back online!

 Night Orks look good and could very easily be converted into Jawa's ;).

We've been making a few new moulds for our WWII ranges and while we were at it we thought we'd add a few little WWII German bits for you, including the 15cm Howitzer and some Jerry cans!

WWII German
Artillery - https://pendraken.co.uk/world-war-ii/german/artillery/
GRA42   15cm sFH18 Howitzer with regular crew   2.95
GRA43   15cm sFH18 Howitzer with winter crew   2.95
GRA44   15cm sFH18 Howitzer with DAK crew   2.95

Misc - https://pendraken.co.uk/world-war-ii/german/misc/
GRX8   AA limber trailer (3)    1.50
GRX21   Jerry cans (10)    1.00

We've also lowered many of the prices in the Misc section as well so that it's a bit more tempting to pop a few extras in your Basket!


And the pics!

We're continuing to work through more of the RedVectors products and this month we've had Ashley working on rescaling some of the existing fence designs into 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm and 28mm!  The Pendraken folks will recognise some of the 10mm fencing and we've added an irregular version as well, and then converted everything to the different scales. 

You get a lot of fence for your money here, from a little of 2ft for 2.50 at 6mm upto a massive 8ft of fencing for 6.00 in the 28mm packs!

10mm - https://www.minibits.net/red-vectors/10mm/fences/

RED-10FNC-03   10mm snakerail fencing   60mm lengths x 10, 9mm high   3.00

We've got the final addition to our 10mm Napoleonic French Guard now with some extra artillery codes all ready to go.  The Guard foot get the 12pdrs and howitzers while the Guard horse (in campaign dress!) get the 4pdrs and howitzers.  This completes most of our plans for the French, I think the only request outstanding now is some later 1815 French infantry so we'll have a look and see what we can fit in later in the year / early 2022. 

This also clears the sculpting drawers and we can focus on the Peninsular project going forward.  The Brits should be with us imminently and then the Portuguese and Brunswickers will follow on quite quickly.  We'll keep everyone updated as we get things done and w

Also, this will be our last release before the big move!  We've got a lot of work ahead of us getting everything ready and moved over to the new place so we'll stockpile any new stuff for after we get settled in our new home. We also need to get the new website ready to launch so we'll be pulling all of the current products out of both Pendraken and Minibits sites and getting them prepped for upload into the new site.

It's been a while since we've had any new releases but our 2D designer Ashley has been working on getting some more MDF designs online while we wait for the next batch of Peninsular sculpts to arrive.  So this first little release is a pair of Belgian Gates available in 10mm, 15mm, 20mm and 28mm options.

The Belgian Gate (or Cointet-element) was an anti-tank obstacle originally designed by the French to defend forts, bridges and roads.  Later in the war, the Germans re-used them as a beach obstacles against the Allies in Normandy.

Red Vectors - https://www.pendraken.co.uk/red-vectors-mdf-948-c.asp
RED-10W2-01    10mm Belgian Gates (x2)   2.00
RED-15W2-01    15mm Belgian Gates (x2)   3.00
RED-20W2-01    20mm Belgian Gates (x2)   4.00
RED-28W2-01    28mm Belgian Gates (x2)   5.00











We've got a few more MDF releases in the pipeline, from the very small (about 30mm diameter) to the very large (5ft long...!) so keep an eye out for those.

We've had a couple of new decal packs arrive from I-94, one for a variety of British 8th Army, Guards and NZ unit insignias, plus a rather handy sheet of Soviet/Russian flags for multiple scales.

The 51st Division markings are close to the marking used by the Division from 1915 to 1940 prior to its surrender at St Valery-en=Caux in June 1940.


The marking used by the renumbered 9th Highland Division, a TA formation, which became 51 Highland Division (the Highway Decorators) from August 1940

Thanks for the reply, I'll pass the feedback on to I-94.  From a quick Google the black text / red circle was used up to 1940, then the red text / red circle was used from that point onwards, so these decal designs would be used for the re-designated division that went off to North Africa?

The red text red circle was used in North Africa and later but on a blue square.  A few vehicles MAY not have the blue square but I have not seen any evidence of this (other than a modern repaint).  I am happy to be corrected.
The HD sign without background appears to have been used on at least one captured SdKfz 251


To answer your question the "new" red on blue formation sign was the reversal of the blue on red of the 9th Highland Division that was renumbered 51 Highland Division in August 1940


So the vehicles on the way to North Africa would need to be repainted in desert colours at some stage so I would expect the repainted ones to carry the new red on blue.  Remember the original 51 Div was lost in France so there may only have been a few vehicles left at home with the old markings. 

One thing I have learned in years of research and military service is that it is not wise to say no vehicle ever had this or that marking and also as my professor said many years ago "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence".

Ashley's been continuing to rescale some of our MDF buildings for 10mm and this week he's finished off the Afghan/North African group, so these are now available!

Next up will be some Fantasy ruins and we might adjust them slightly to make them suit WWII as well.

We've had these for some time but completely forgot to get them released with everything else going on!  But the good news is that they've been added to the site and they're all available for purchase now!

First up we've got two new sheets for the 1812 French, filling in the gap between our 1804 and 1815 sheets.  And then we've added some useful Bavarian designs with two sets available, one to cover the earlier Ducal period (1798-1806) and then a sheet for the Royal period (1806-1815).  This rounds out almost all of our Napoleonic ranges now, the only additions to come will be the Peninsular flags to go with our upcoming figure ranges.

Flags

PNFL523   1812 French, type 1   2.50

PNFL525   Bavarian Ducal (1798-1806)   2.50
PNFL526   Bavarian Royal (1806-1815)   2.50
