New Napoleonic Flags released!

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.

PNFL524   1812 French, type 2   £2.50

New I-94 Decals available!

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.

I-94 Decals

BR-128 – 8th Army, Guards, 50th/51st Inf Div and 2nd NZ Unit Insignia [1/76-1/100]

Belgian Gates released!

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
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.

New AWI sculpts previewed!

Some of you will have already seen these in Clib’s thread (  ) but they’ve now arrived at Pendraken HQ and are sitting patiently ready to be master moulded.  This batch were mainly customer requests/commissions and add some nice extra options to our extensive AWI ranges.

British skirmishers in round hats and short coats:

British command in roundabouts:

British Queens Ranger command:

Rumour has it that there may be some more AWI additions in the pipeline so we’ll wait for those to arrive and then we can mould everything in one go.

New Website Launched!

Our new website is now live so head over and have a browse:

After many weeks of work our new website is now live, and to say ‘Thank you’ for all of your support during the pandemic we’re running a 10% Launch Sale as well!  All of the products previously split between the Pendraken and Minibits websites have been combined into one single site, so there’s almost 6000 products to choose from across multiple scales and genres, from 6mm Sci-Fi to 10mm WWII to 28mm Wild West.  Hopefully there’s something there for everyone!

The new site is a real upgrade on the old one and comes with a lot of extra features:

All-in-One – Everything on one website, so you can buy and purchase in a single checkout.
Loyalty Points – All orders will now receive Loyalty Points which can be exchanged for extra goodies on future orders.
Wish List – All products can be added to a Wishlist instead, which you can come back to later or even send to a friend/family member ready for a birthday or Christmas!
Reduced Shipping – All decals and flags are available at reduced shipping rates to save you some money.
Order Tracking – You can now choose to have your packages sent on a Tracked service, for that extra peace of mind.
Live Stock – We’ve got a full inventory system to keep track of stock levels. Please note that we might see some minor errors in this from items sold during the move to the new site.
Out of Stock Notifications – If a product is out of stock, you can ask to be notified when we get a restock.
Payment Options – As well as the usual PayPal we now have alternative payment methods available.
News Page – A new news page with full search function to explore previous releases.
Newsletter Function – We can start sending out our monthly newsletters once again with all of the latest news and releases.

Please note that the website may take a few hours to appear around the world but it should be online for everyone by early Friday afternoon (GM Time).  Anybody that had an account on our old website has had their account transferred over to the new site and you should have received an email with instructions on how to activate it.

One quick thing to mention regarding shipping rates, the new website doesn’t run on a ‘percentage of order’ so we’ve had to introduce shipping bands instead.  With the rising costs of shipping all over the world these days we’ve tried to keep these as low as we can but they are a touch higher than previously.  It’s actually been difficult to find suitable price points so we’ve underestimated the actual costs for most packages and we’ll take the hit on any difference.  As an example, a small 500g package to the USA would be £8.30 as a Large Letter, but as soon as it doesn’t go through the letter slot, it doubles to £16.60 instead!  We’re constantly looking for different courier options so we’ll reduce our shipping rates whenever we can.  The ‘Maximum shipping’ levels have remained though so there’s no extra shipping to pay once your order passes the £100 mark.

So that’s about it for now, if you spot any glitches in the matrix please let us know and we’ll fix them straightaway, but in the meantime have a browse and we hope you like it!

We’d also like to say a big thank you to Stewart Leonard at Stormrider Studios for running the old website for so many years.  This upgrade was for extra functionality and to streamline some processes behind the scenes, so no issues at all with his service!  Stewart will instead be looking after our Forum going forward and is also helping us get the upcoming BKC Army Builder ready for launch.

Fantasy Wave 2 released!

After our first batch before Christmas we’re back with another wave of Fantasy releases!

We’ve got all sorts ready for you this time, including troglodytes, unicorns, pegasi, gargoyles, worms, eagles, vultures, tortoises, beasts and even a giant Venus flytrap!  Plus the Dark Elves get some spider riders and the Undead range gets an excellent Dark Coach.  These are all a variety of new sculpts and revamped older figures, courtesy of the talented Phil Lewis.  And many of them will serve quite happily in games from 10mm upto 28mm so there’s a lot of useful stuff here.

FAN-MON21   Troglodytes (22mm high)   £3.50
FAN-MON22   Unicorns (16mm high)   £2.50
FAN-MON23   Pegasi (16mm high)   £2.50

Night Orcs available again!

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 Orcs
FAN-NRC1   Night Orc Spearmen (25)   £5.50
FAN-NRC2   Night Orc Archers (25)   £5.50

French Guard released!

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.

NPF49   Young Guard Tirailleur Chasseurs/Voltigeurs (30)   £5.50
NPF50   Young Guard Tirailleur Grenadiers/Tirailleurs (30)   £5.50
NPF51   Middle Guard Fusilier Chasseurs (30)   £5.50
NPF52   Middle Guard Fusilier Grenadiers (30)   £5.50
NPF53   Young/Middle Guard mounted officers (5)   £1.85

NPF55   Old Guard Grenadiers (30)   £5.50
NPF56   Old Guard mounted officers (5)   £1.85

New Fantasy Monsters released!

As we trundle towards the end of what’s been a pretty terrible year, we’ve got a few batches of shiny new releases to bring you a bit of Christmas cheer!

First up we’ve got the initial wave of our Fantasy expansion, containing all of the big boys!  We’ve got Fire and Stone Giants, Storm and Plague Elementals, Forest Trolls, Blood Demons and Terror Birds!  These monster types are all big sculpts, coming in at between 25-32mm tall generally, so they’ll work for all manner of Fantasy games outside of 10mm as well.

And then…..  BEARS!  You’ve asked for them for years and they’re finally here, in normal, armoured or saddled varieties.

FAN-MON10   Fire Giants (32mm high)   £4.00
FAN-MON11   Stone Giants (33mm high)   £4.00
FAN-MON12   Terror Birds (23mm high)   £3.50

Siege Tower & Trebuchet released!

We’ve got a fun little pair of releases next with both a siege tower and a trebuchet now available in our Late Medieval range!

The structures have been made from MDF and then Techno has added some handy crew figures to them for us.  Both standing at around 80mm high they’ll make a great addition to any siege games.  The trebuchet will require a bit of modelling to make the sling and ropes, but we’re sure that folks will have those to hand at home.  The tower could equally be pulled into position by horses, so we can supply those as well if folks want them.

European Late Medieval
ELM41   Siege tower with crew   £5.00
ELM42   Trebuchet with crew   £5.00

And the pics of course:

We hope you like them!

TB Line Islamics available again!

We know that a lot of you have been waiting a long time for these (Hi Ithoriel!) and they’re finally here!  The TB Line Islamics range is back online and available to order again.

We’ve got 8 codes in this batch covering mounted command, cavalry and infantry with a nice mix of sculpts in each.  We’ve not found any extra sculpts for these packs, which is a bit of a shame, but they are up to the usual high standard that we’ve seen in the previous TB ranges.  It’s taken quite a lot of clean-up work though, this batch of 8 codes took nearly 12 hours of careful cleaning to get them ready for the new production moulds.

For those who’ve not had any TB Line figures before, they match up very well to our own in both size and proportions.

TB Line
Middle Age Islamics
TB-188   Mounted command group   £5.50
TB-189   Heavy knights with lance   £5.50
TB-190   Light cavalry with bows   £5.50

TB-192   Archers   £5.50
TB-193   Crossbowman   £5.50
TB-194   Knights on foot   £5.50
TB-195   Infantry with sword/spear   £5.50
(Packs contain 15 cavalry or 30 infantry)

And the pics:

The final Middle Ages range in the TB Line catalogue is the Mongols, so we’ll be getting those sorted out for release in 2021.

New ECW releases!

We’ve been doing some work on our ECW range recently with a variety of revamps and new releases for you!  First up we’ve got some new Scots codes in the form of infantry and cavalry casualties (commissioned by our own mollinary) and some armoured pikemen.  Next we’ve upgraded the old dismounted dragoons and peasants with newer sculpts and more poses, and then we’ve also taken the opportunity to remould a few of the older codes and split the pikement into either standing or advancing options.  So you can now choose whether to have your pike blocks stationary or on the move!

And finally we’ve added photos of the full range to the website!

French Guard cavalry released!

It’s been a while since we’ve had any new goodies for you so hopefully this long-awaited batch will cheer some of you up!  These French Guard cavalry types were sculpted many moons ago and got themselves firmly wedged in a mysterious crevice where we couldn’t find them…   Embarrassed  But with the shows all cancelled for the foreseeable we thought it was about time we caught up on some of those ‘back burner’ projects and get them released.

And here they are!  We’ve got the Guard Chasseurs a Cheval and Grenadiers a Cheval, plus Empress Dragoons and Red Lancers for good measure.  We’ve got some Guard infantry and artillery crews also in the pipeline but it’ll be a little longer before we can get those ducks in a row.

NPF45   Guard Chasseur a Cheval   £5.50
NPF46   Guard Grenadier a Cheval   £5.50
NPF47   Empress Dragoons   £5.50

Libertad! now available!

Libertad! is a supplement for the popular Blitzkrieg Commander IV wargames rules, focussing on the Spanish Civil War from 1936-1939.

Written by Mark Fry and Rob Anderson, Libertad! contains 23 new army lists for the various factions present in this conflict, plus 5 historical scenarios complete with maps by Henry Hyde, as well as new rules for Line Commanders, Street Barricades, Molotov Cocktails and more.

This supplement is initially available as a pdf through Wargame Vault here:

Hard copies will be available shortly, more info to come on that soon.

Pendraken acquires RedVectors!

Pendraken/Minibits acquires REDvectors!

As many of you will be aware, we’ve been working with Mick at REDvectors for many years now, running the production and sales side while he created more excellent MDF designs. We’re now very pleased to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to take over REDvectors entirely, bringing all of the remaining designs over to Pendraken Miniatures / Minibits, as well as the REDvectors brand itself.

We’d like to place on record our thanks to Mick for this opportunity and for allowing us to license his designs in the first place. It’s always nice to work with professional and enthusiastic people and Mick has been a great guy throughout our partnership. He’ll now be enjoying his retirement with Gill in their campervan and rolling some dice when not touring!

Moving forward we’ve recently hired two new people to take on all of the 2D design aspects of our business, so the new guys will be working through all of the remaining REDvectors designs and getting them ready for production over the rest of this year. We’ll also be looking to rescale some of the designs and provide more variety across the ranges.

The REDvectors brand will continue to be used for all of our MDF products going forward and you’ll be able to find all of them on the Minibits website here:

If there are any existing REDvectors designs that you’d like to see pushed to the front of the production queue, let us know. And if you’ve got any ideas for new products, give us a shout and we’ll see what we can do!

Extra Elizabethan codes released!

It’s our final day of the ’10 Days of Shiny!’

For the last release in this run we’ve got a little expansion of our Elizabethan range.  Some of you might recognise these figures from Dave’s own project last year, so we’ve done a deal and brought them into our range instead.  We’ve got extra poses of arquebusiers, musketeers and pikemen, as well as mounted arquebusiers, command and the oft-requested jinetes!

EL3  Arquebusiers   £5.50

EL17  Halberdier    £5.50
EL18  Pikemen, unarmoured     £5.50
EL19  Musketeers, type 2     £5.50

We hope you’ve all enjoyed these recent releases and have found something useful, interesting or at the very least, shiny!  We’ve got a lot of stuff still in the pipeline at Pendraken HQ so we’ll put out a quick summary of where we are with it all this weekend.  In the meantime, enjoy!
