Pendraken Miniatures Release Nassau contingent!

Pendraken miniatures is continuing their expansion of their Napoleonic ranges this month, with the arrival of the Nassau contingent!  This little range can of course be used on both sides of the period, serving with the French in the Peninsular before switching allegiance after Leipzig in 1813 and becoming part of Wellington's army.

Napoleonics
Nassau - http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Napoleonic-c14/Nassau-sc336/
NNA1   Line infantry / Fusiliers (30)   £4.50
NNA2   Light infantry / Voltigeur (16)   £2.50
NNA3   Light infantry / Grenadier (16)   £2.50
NNA4   Foot command (30)   £4.50
NNA5   Mounted Officers (5)   £1.50

Pendraken Miniatures will also be  looking at putting together a smaller army pack for these as well, more details to come on that.  Next up for the Napoleonics will be the Prussians, which are going into master moulds in the next fortnight and should be released before the end of the year hopefully.  After that we'll be heading back to the French to fill in some gaps.

So, time for some pics:

Dindrenzi Federation Core Helix

Inside a Dindrenzi Core Helix, Commanders have access to a large number of skimming hover vehicles that can perform lightning fast hit-and-run attacks against their enemies, allowing them to deliver punishing firepower against their foes before slipping away unseen.

The largest vehicle in the Core Helix is the impressive Kratos Heavy Skimmer – a true battlefield predator, armed with Rail Gun technology that can give even the heavily shielded Leviathans a reason to be fearful!

Next up are the Eris Medium Skimmers – a medium range engagement skimmer, used by Commanders to support the heavy elements within the Helix with even more Rail Guns!

One of the key battlefield decisions for a Commander to make is that of deciding to hold back, using their hit-and-run ability to avoid enemy weapons fire, or dive straight in and use the impact of their railgun technology to cause shield using enemies to lose their advantage.

Added to this backbone is the Circe Specialist Skimmer tasked with the designation of the insertion points for the feared Nyx Light Infantry who are trained to overwhelm foes in lightning attacks when deployed via their Damocles Class Drop Pods.

Assaulting from low orbit is a major tactic of the Dindrenzi, using calculated gambles ot strike at the heart of the enemy, allowing them to secure strategic battlefield objectives.

‘The Dindrenzi Federation is a spearhead force, that uses its ability to strike deep into a battlefield to disorientate its enemy… securing key objectives with ease’

Finally, the Leto Light Recon Skimmers provide rapid support to their Infantry brethren using a combination of raw aggression and Harvester Coil Launchers!

The Dindrenzi Federation excels at extreme, focused aggression exercised along a minimal front using strong Recon Units and Elite Infantry to provide the killer blow.

Save Antietam's North Woods!

Save Antietam's North Woods!

When opportunity presents itself, you must act. Union General George McClellan knew this when he discovered a lost copy of General Robert E. Lee’s orders for his September 1862 invasion of Maryland. Armed with this invaluable intelligence, McClellan set his army on a collision course with the Confederates that resulted in the bloodiest day in American history the Battle of Antietam. Though “Little Mac” failed to destroy his enemy, as some might have liked, few could argue his decision to bring on a battle in Maryland changed the course of American history.

The Civil War Trust has now been called into swift action to preserve a 1.2-acre portion of the North Woods on the Antietam battlefield. At a recent auction, the Trust placed the winning $300,000 bid on this land. The Save Historic Antietam Foundation immediately pledged $50,000 leaving us $250,000 to raise within 45 days of the auction. Though we have had our fair share of opportunities at this iconic battlefield this year, this tract in particular which saw troops from three different Union corps advance and retreat across it requires our immediate attention. If we do not raise the necessary $250,000 by November 3 of this year, we could lose our chance to save this important piece of hallowed ground.

Help Save the North Woods at Antietam!
