Pendraken's 2018 Releases!

Posted by Leon Pendraken on 02 Mar 2018, 19:54

Another year and another releases thread!

With the recent weather here in the UK, many of you may be considering sacrificing a close friend or family member to the fire-god Huehueteotl... So to help you scratch that itch, we've got some Aztecs!

These have been a long-term project and are the result of endless requests, nudges and downright pestering by our Forum's own Fierce Kitty. But credit where credit's due, he's provided all of the help and guidance as we worked through the range and his efforts have now been rewarded!

The Aztecs were a Mesoamerican culture in central Mexico from 1300 until 1521. For most of this period the various tribes fought amongst each other until the arrival of the Spanish in 1517, leading to a short period of conflict and ultimately the conquest of the indigenous population by the European colonists.

We've got another new range online next, with the start of a WWII Belgian range now available! This little batch are all Vickers designs, including the Utility B tractor which was a licensed Belgian version of the Vickers Utility vehicle. Next up is the the B1/B2 version of the T-13 tank destroyer with a 47mm AT gun. And finally we've got the T-15 light tank, armed with a 13.2mm machine gun.

For infantry, we are planning to add some specific Belgian figures at some point in the future but it's likely to be 2019 or later before we fit those into the schedule. In the meantime, our WWII French in Adrian helmets are a suitable proxy.

And bringing up the rear we've added the model 1943 version of the T-34, complete with the oft-requested 'Mickey Mouse' turret!

Our final set of releases for the week takes us into the post-war period, with the M46 Patton and M60A3 now available!

The M46 was produced after WWII as a replacement for the Pershing and Sherman tanks. Production continued until the late 1950's and this one will prove rather handy for our upcoming Korean War range.

Jumping forward a couple of decades, the A3 variant of the M60 was developed with a number of enhancements over the A2, including smoke dischargers and turret stabilisation. Whilst it was phased out of US service in the 2000's, this tank is still in service in several countries around the world.

Modern
Vehicles - https://pendraken.co.uk/modern/vehicles/
MDV59 M46 Patton £3.50
MDV60 M60A3, 105mm £3.70


And the pics:

That's it for now, we've got some Naps and WWI releases coming next so keep an eye out for those!

The steady expansion of our Napoleonic ranges continues, with both the Hanoverians and King's German Legion now available and ready to serve!

On the Hanoverian side we've got them in both shako and cap options, plus jager and landwehr and a handy mounted officer in bicorne. For the KGL, we've got line, lights, Hussars and a mounted officer in stovepipe. These Hussars can be used for the Hanoverians as well.

Next in this period will be the Dutch-Belgians towards the end of the year and then that'll be it for the later period for now. After that we'll be trying to go back to 1809 and fill in some of the missing nations there.

We've added a few new products to the Tools section of our website, with a selection of sculpting putties, some abrasive pads and a pack of Humbrol flat brushes now available!

On the putties side we've got packs of Magic Sculpt and Green Stuff, as well as the Milliput Standard and Terracotta. The Milliputs are handy to have around for basic filling and repair work, while the Magic Sculpt and Green Stuff are of more use for full sculpts or conversion jobs.

The micro abrasive foam-backed pads are very flexible, soft-backed pads which are easy to use and don't need a backing support pad, unlike normal abrasive sheets. Every pad is abrasive on both sides with the same grade. These are ideal for curved surfaces and can be washed and re-used. Each pad measures 50mm x 50mm (2"x2") in size and can be used on soft woods, plastics, painted surfaces and for finishing metals. This pack contains 9 pads in grades: - 1500 - 1800 - 2400 - 3200 - 3600 - 4000 - 6000 - 8000 - 12000

And finally we've added a pack of Humbrol flat paintbrushes as well. These brushes are made from high quality soft synthetic hair, perfect for creating a smooth professional finish and ideal for painting large surface areas, weathering, adding washes and helping to apply decals. This pack contains four different brushes, sizes 3, 5, 7 and 10, suitable for both enamel and acrylic paints.

These are all on both the Pendraken and Minibits websites:
Putties - https://pendraken.co.uk/tools-putties-glues/putties/ and http://www.minibits.net/tools-putties-glues/putties/

We've got another 20 releases in our 20th Century ranges!

Firstly, we're continuing to revamp some of our older WWII models and next up is the British Cruiser series and the German Panzer IV's. On the Cruiser side we've replaced the original A9, A10 and A13's, as well as adding another 5 variants as well. For the Panzer IV's it's a straight swap of new for old, as well as the StuG IV and the Brummbar as well. Moving forward we'll be replacing the Nashorn, Hummel, Mobelwagen, Wirbelwind and Ostwind. Also for the Germans we've revamped the Jagdpanther IV L70 and also added a new Tiger I with zimmerit.
