326 Acres at New Market Heights, North Anna, and Second Manassas

326 Acres at New Market Heights, North Anna, and Second Manassas

I am writing to you about an incredible opportunity to save 326 acres of hallowed ground in the Civil War’s most fought-over state, Virginia.

As of this writing, you and I have saved more than 24,000 acres of battlefield land in the Old Dominion. But when you think of just how much happened in Virginia the first major land battle of the war, the site of Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and more than 120 battles and skirmishes in between it’s easy to understand why we have done so much work there.

We are currently working to preserve land at three battlefields: Second Manassas, North Anna, and New Market Heights. At Second Manassas, we are adding 167 acres to the more than 200 acres we have already preserved there and preventing the construction of McMansions on a key piece of hallowed ground.

Farther south, we have the opportunity to save 126 acres at North Anna, including the site of the historic Fox House. This was a key battle during General Ulysses S. Grant’s Overland Campaign of 1864, and this piece of ground Robert E. Lee reportedly stopped for a glass of buttermilk before the battle began is considered the lynchpin of the Confederate line.

Last but by no means least we have the chance to save 33 acres of core battlefield at New Market Heights. Standing here on September 29, 1864, you would have seen United States Colored Troops 14 of whom received the Medal of Honor charging against Confederate earthworks in a successful assault.

All told, these 326 acres are valued at more than $5.6 million. But, thanks to an incredible $33.42-to-these $1 match, you and I can save these tangible pieces of American history for $167,900. Help us preserve these key chapters of the American story by saving the ground that saw so much valor and sacrifice during our nation’s defining conflict.

Save Three Virginia Battlefields.

First look at the Aztec Sculpts from Pendraken Miniatures

Phil's been quietly working away on this project for some time now, adding a sculpt here and there as he's been working on other things for us.  But the good news is that they're all done now and we've got them here at Pendraken HQ!  One person who will be rather excited by this (and is largely responsible for these becoming a reality) is Fierce Kitty, so we hope he likes them!  We'd like to thank him for all of his time and effort helping us out with this range as well, chatting with Phil about the design side and then with me to put the range lists together.  This lot will be getting master moulded in the next few weeks and should be ready for release early in the New Year.

TerraForms Terrain, News

Yeah I've really been slacking on updates. I'm terrible at this whole communication thing.

Okay, so some info that got put out to the backers on Kickstarter that can be relayed here:

Long story short, lots of issues that had kept me from things. Family health issues, personal health issues, and a bunch of other stuff that all conspired to set me back further.

Had a backer donate a significant sum of money to help keep things moving and get kits into backers' hands, chooses to remain anonymous but a huge thanks to them!

That spurred me into action, and I've pursued some credit and financing that will allow me to set up my own facility and equipment. Some of the folks that began this project with me have left me high and dry, and showed some true colors. That's fine, I will continue to pursue this project. I still have my passion for gaming, my passion for this terrain, and my desire to give something to my fellow gamers. I'm willing to put myself out there to keep this thing going.

I still have stacks of notebooks with new ideas for great terrain, as well as the stuff still swimming around in my brain that I want to get on to. Step one is to get the Kickstarter finished out and get stock on shelves so people aren't waiting months and months for their product. I'm getting equipment purchased and having some construction done over the next few weeks to get the facility ready. Materials will be en route and casting will resume full time shortly thereafter.

My most humble apologies to those of you who have had to wait this long for your kickstarter orders, and those of you who have been waiting for a web store to open up to place your orders. Thank you so much for your patience, I hope you too will be as happy with the product as the majority of backers who have already received their kits!

3 Years of Campaign 1776

This month marks the third anniversary of Campaign 1776, our national initiative to protect, interpret, and promote the battlefields associated with the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Since its debut, you have been a key part of many remarkable preservation achievements. Thanks to you, we have saved 650 acres of land rooted in these early American wars that would have remained unprotected and could easily have been lost forever.

The numbers below help tell a piece of the story of what we’ve accomplished together in these past three years. I feel an immense sense of pride in these shared milestones, and I hope you feel the same.

I am both honored and humbled by your support to save the hallowed ground where America was founded. Thank you for ensuring that battlefield land is protected for future generations to recognize the compelling story that it has to tell. I look forward to what we will accomplish together in the future.
