10mm Chinese Warring States Fogg of War Miniatures

As 2108 is coming to an end very soon I thought Id finish off with some pictures of the Fogg of War Miniatures Chinese Warring States range.

What do you think? Are there anything we've missed or you want added.

Pendraken Miniatures 2019 Show Dates

With a new year comes a new show season and we'll be kicking things off as always with the excellent Vapnartak show in York!  All of the show dates are listed below, so if you'd like to pre-order anything for any of these events, please make sure to let us know at least 7 days in advance!

There's a couple of changes to the schedule this year.  Firstly we've got a new Glasgow show back on the calendar which is great news.  Taking place at the end of June, we're hoping that people will come and support this new event.  Then at the other end of the year, there's not been any news about the Derbys show so we've knocked that off our list.

We're still waiting on a date for the Border Reiver show as well, Colours have moved their event back a weekend which has caused a clash.  The Border Reivers club are currently looking at their options and will be confirming a date very soon.

And of course there'll be our own Battleground show taking place on Saturday 30th November this year!

February
Sun 3rd - Vapnartak, York 

March
Sat 2nd - Hammerhead, Newark 
Sun 10th - WMMS, Wolverhampton 

April
Sat 6th - Salute, London 

May
Sat 11th - Carronade, Falkirk

June
Sat 15th - Phalanx, St Helens 

August
Sat 3rd - Claymore, Edinburgh 

September

Sat 7th - Colours, Newbury  

October
Sun 27th - Fiasco, Leeds

November
Sat/Sun 16th/17th - Warfare, Reading 
Sat 30th - Battleground, Stockton-on-Tees 

Hopefully we'll see some of you there, so make sure to drop by and say hello if you're around!

Pendraken Miniatures 2018 Review

Pendraken Miniatures 2018 Review

As we hit the end of the year I thought it would be good to look back at 2018 and assess how we did.  It's a bit of a mixed bag so we'll start with the areas that we didn't do so well...

BKC-IV
Despite all of the work that has gone into BKC over the past 12 months we weren't quite able to get it finalised and off to the printers in time for Christmas.  We know that a huge number of you have been patiently waiting for this to be completed and it's something that I'll be thankful to get off my 'To Do' list personally.  The good news is that the bulk of the work is done, we're just fine-tuning things at this point.  I've got some edits to make to the army lists, plus a few tweaks from our initial round of feedback and then we'll be sending a pdf out to a wider group for our final round of feedback.  Once that comes back, we'll make any final adjustments and then it's off to the printers! 

TB Line
We'd really wanted to be further along the TB Line re-releases by now but with the BKC work above and our other releases this year, they got bumped down the queue and we only managed to get two of the ranges released.  We also underestimated how much clean-up work was required on the figures, so the job of simply prepping them for new moulds was a lot more intensive than we'd hoped.  We know what we're dealing with now and with clearer waters ahead we'll be able to crack on with this.

Shows
From a purely business perspective, the shows for 2018 were a bit hit and miss and by the end of the year our sales were down considerably.  A large part of this was the loss of the Derby event plus us not attending the Skelp and Durham shows, so for 2019 we've added a new Glasgow show to the calendar and we're hoping to add another if there's space for us.  We're also doing some work on the show stand to streamline the 10mm side of things and expand with some product lines that will appeal to a wider market.

So with those out of the way, let's look at the positives!

Releases
We managed 313 releases this year which is a huge amount of new product.  We put out a complete range for the Korean War, plus Aztecs and Risorgimento Italians, as well as expanding our WWI, WWII, Napoleonic and Modern vehicle ranges.  All of the releases can be found here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,18103.0.html

Those 313 codes are just on the Pendraken 10mm side of things, we also added a variety of MDF buildings, multi-scale animals and some third-party products as well.  For next year we'll be continuing in the same vein with at least 100 new releases already sculpted or in the works, plus the new projects which we've got planned.  We'll have more info on those in a separate thread coming shortly.

Website Photos
This is something we've been working on for a long time and over the past year we managed to add nearly 400 new photos to existing codes on the website, as well as making sure that all of the new releases had pics as well.  We recently did a tally-up and found that we've got a little over 1500 codes still without images so this is going to be a priority for next year.

Turnaround Times
With the 2 new casting staff on board we've made real progress on our turnaround times, reducing them from an average of 11 days in the previous year down to an average of only 4 days for 2019.  The new guys are doing well on a variety of ranges now so we've got capacity to expand their workload for the first time in Pendraken's history.  Having this available means that we can work harder on getting new ranges released and new images added to the site, as well as some other jobs that we've never had time for at Pendraken HQ.

Not-Kickstarter
The not-Kickstarter proved to be a real success and demonstrated that this is a viable method of getting future ranges into production.  Once the 1809 expansion is complete we'll have a sit down and work out where we can utilise this next.  At this stage it's likely to be further Napoleonic ranges.

Minibits
Minibits showed real growth this year, adding several new product lines in the form of Vallejo Panzer Aces paints and more RedVectors buildings, as well as running a successful Kickstarter for some new 28mm figures.  We've got plans for some more of the same through 2019.

Sales
Sales for 2018 were up on 2017, helped mostly by having a price increase in February (which always boosts sales in January) followed by the not-KS and KS boosts in November.  This helped to cover the downturn in show sales and keep the cash flow ticking over. 

WI Awards
Last month we managed to pick up 2nd place for Customer Service in the Wargames Illustrated Awards, which was a massive achievement.  When you consider the size of some of the 28mm companies and the massive market share that they occupy, for us to get that 2nd place is huge.  And it's all down to you guys and your votes, so thank you for that support.

So, all in all it's been a good year at Pendraken HQ.  There's obviously a few areas that we need to focus on but generally we've made good progress on several fronts.  With the plans we've got for next year, plus the imminent relaunch of BKC, things are looking pretty good!

We'll be discussing our plans for 2019 in a new thread very soon, so keep an eye out for that.  And in the meantime, we hope you all have a good New Year!

10mm Mongols Range from Fogg of War Miniatures

People have been asking so are here are some photo's of the Fogg of War Mongols. We are currently reworking the standard bearer though. I have also put in some pictures of these figures in mass, from Pete Foggins own collection.

Any comments (good or bad) or thoughts on additions to the range are as always appreciated.

The website is currently a work in progress as that evil thing called work keeps getting in the way. But it as well as other things are on our massive list of things to do.

Aotrs Shipyards Price: £3.70

The GT’s Scorpion light tank is a modification of the export version of the modern version of the CVR (TT) hulls. As typical with the GT, the precise origins of the hulls remain a mystery, since no tracked purchases lead back to the GT. It is assumed that the hulls are predominantly from the Scorpion variants, though given the near-identical structure of the FV107Y Scimitar, it is possible some GT Scorpions may have come from Scimitars.

While the Scorpion Light Tank is capable of functioning in the CVR(T)’s original reconnaissance role due to it being one of the very few GT vehicles with sensors, it is more commonly used as a light combat vehicle.

The GT’s modifications included and upgraded power planet and additional ERA armour. While outdated, the ERA blocks provide a little extra to an otherwise lightly armoured vehicle.

The turret shows the most extensive modification, replacing the main armament with two 20mm Gatling cannons. This gives the Scorpion excellent range and anti-infantry capability, but makes it a poor choice to attack armour without a long-sustained burst – making it a poor choice for the massed-charge frontal assaults the GT are fond of. (If perhaps a better one than the unfortunates assigned to the ubiquitous Technicals.)

To compensate for this, the GT added four AT-3V Sagger missile racks. The AT-3V Sagger is somewhat outdated, having been, in service across the galaxy for half a century since the 2390s. However, the large and readily available black market surplus means it is an ideal choice for the GT to add some extra firepower. While an individual Sagger is only of a minor threat to a modern MBT from the front, a horde of Scorpions firing four simultaneously is a threat to almost any ground vehicle.

Like many of the GT vehicles, the Scorpion’s principal drawback is the excessive, volatile ammunition stored inside it – meaning that even with its additional armour, it is in many ways more vulnerable to a penetrating hit than the vehicles on which it is based.

GAZ-99371 Vodnik Sensor Van

GAZ-99371 Vodnik Sensor Van

Aotrs Shipyards Price: £4.10

The GT’s Sensor Van serves as their primary command vehicle. The Sensor Van is a GAZ-99371 Vodnik chassis, up-armoured by the addition of more armour plate. (This chassis is also used for the GT’s Battle Wagon, which serves as their primary APC.)

The Sensor Van’s rear module is specialised for command and control duties, fitted with all the latest GT CNC technology, including a table, a cupboard for the models and sometimes even a working datapad.

The Sensor Van’s turret consists of a sensor dish, behind which are mounted a pair of remote-controlled FIM-292 Stinger Multirole Missile Launchers. The launchers are reloaded by the advanced method of opening the two rear hatches and climbing out (usually the least senior of the command staff is assigned this job).

Despite its relative crudity, the Sensor Van is nevertheless adequate to the task of leading a GT raiding force – though usually this mostly consists of pointing the army in the general direction of the enemy and ordering a charge.

There will be more sci-fi releases for the GT over the next couple of months, likely followed by the new ground force for the Phystyulons.

See you all next year and have a good Christmas all!

French AMX-VCI and EBR-75 Released from Pendraken Miniatures

Our final release of 2018 adds a French five to the Modern Vehicles range with the addition of the AMX-VCI APC and the Panhard EBR armoured car.

The AMX-VCI was an APC variant of the AMX-13 chassis, with around 3000 produced in a number of variants.  We've got the three most useful types:
- the VTT with a standard turret mounted machine gun.
- the 12.7, fitted with a 50 calibre HMG.
- the M-56, fitted with a 20mm cannon.

As well as France, these were extensively used by both Belgium and the Netherlands and are still in active service in various other countries. 

The Panhard EBR was an 8-wheeled armoured car which was originally designed before WWII but didn't start production until the early 1950's.  Both the FL-10 and FL-11 variants had 75mm turrets, with the latter being sourced from the AMX-13 tank.  Over 1000 of these were produced in total, with one of them carrying the coffin of Charles de Gaulle at his state funeral.

News from Hysterical Games


Apologies for the radio silence but we needed to concentrate on things behind the scenes to do what was needed to sort out Hysterical Games urgent debts and see what we could do to rescue the Kickstarters.

The former we have mostly done by selling off our mould making equipment etc which unfortunately meant we had to lay off the two members of staff employed by Hysterical (fortunately they have both found new jobs).

This, however, does not leave us with any money that is needed to finish the Kickstarters.

Now, as we are sure most of you realise, Kickstarter is an investment platform and there are no guarantees that projects will be completed (indeed of the many we have personally backed, a few still remain unfulfilled and we suspect never will be).

However, both of us wanted to see if there was anyway we could try and ensure your investments were realised as much as possible and see the Kickstarters completed.

We have looked at various options, including selling the miniatures lines to a third party, but as it will cost several thousand pounds still to complete the Kickstarters, whilst there was interest in taking the miniatures line, there was, unsurprisingly, little in completing the Kickstarters for backers.

So we have decided to transfer the IP back to Wessex Games (Steve's original company which brought out Panzerfäuste in 1998) along with the miniatures line and through sales generated from them, Wessex Games will then attempt to fulfil the Kickstarters to the best of their ability.

Unfortunately there is no magic money tree and Steve doesn’t have a pile of cash sat around to do this quickly so it will take some time, dependent on how quickly he can can raise funds at shows and through mail order. However his intention is to do his best to finish the Kickstarters off as quickly as he can and as well as possible.

At present everything related to the miniatures side is in a storage locker in Bristol and Steve hopes over the festive period to sit down and go through the various boxes of mixed up stuff to sort out what we have and draw up a plan to get everything done as soon as possible.

Wessex Games is a part-time, one man company, and he does have a full-time day job that pays the household bills, so please bear with him as he works through this, there will be periods of radio silence and he will not be able to respond to emails, PM's etc very quickly (if at all).

Hopefully you see this as positive news and hopefully 2019 will be a positive year for both Panzerfäuste and Spitfyre.

Wishing you all a great Christmas and New Year…
