Welcome to the latest Pendraken newsletter!
Firstly, we hope you're all settled down and ready to enjoy a nice break over the festive period. Pendraken HQ is now closed but we'll be back at work on Wednesday 3rd January ready to work through all of your orders. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support this year, it's been a bit of a tough one but there's a lot of exciting stuff coming in 2024!
As mentioned in our announcement back in August, we'll be having a price increase on January 1st 2024, so you've got a little over a week to get any orders in before the changes take effect. We'd been waiting to hear more information on the minimum wage increases, as well getting an idea on interest rates ahead of our commercial mortgage renewal (both coming in April '24), so we can now confirm that prices will have to go up by 12.5% across all of our cast metal 10mm products. This will mean the following main changes:
Standard 30-man / 15-cav packs - £6.00 > £6.75
Standard 10-man packs - £2.00 > £2.25
WWII 'regular' vehicles and artillery packs - £2.95 > £3.20
Army packs - £36.00 > £42.00
There's more info on the rest of the increases over on our Forum here.

10mm Christmas Diorama Set released!
With it being Christmas we've got a little festive release for you next, with this 10mm Christmas Diorama Set now available! This contains Santa and Mrs Clause, some elves, two reindeer, a Christmas tree, Jack Frost, North Pole, Snowman and Snowdog! It'll be fun to see where this crops up on your game tables! Head over and grab your set here.
Russo-Japanese flags now available!
We've got a bit of an early Christmas present for all of the people who've been asking for these! The flagsheets for our new Russo-Japanese range are now available, with a single sheet for the Japanese and a trio for the Russians, including a cavalry sheet.
The amount of solid reference material for this period is thin on the ground so Tony of TinyTinTroops has spent a massive amount of time digging through both English and Russian sources to make sure that these are as accurate as possible. The end result is certainly worth it though as they look great.
These can be found on our website here.
Sci-Fi Vehicles Previewed!
After the first batch were previewed last month, we've got the remaining two sets of vehicles and support weapons all photo'd for you now. These will be heading to moulds once we return from our Christmas break.
The first two Sci-Fi ranges have all been production moulded but we ran out of time to get them photo'd for their release. So it'll be easier to get that done in the new year and then they can be our first release of 2024. The second two ranges will then follow on in mid-January and the final two will be launched at the end of the month.
More info over on our Forum here.
28mm Covered Wagon released!
We've got a little (although bigger!) addition for everyone next, with a 28mm Covered Wagon now available, suitable for the mid-late 19th Century. This is actually from Dave's personal Schleswig-Holstein range but we thought it would fit nicely with some of the MDF ones that we produce under the RedVectors banner. This new wagon and all of our others can be found on the website here.
New buildings from Battlescale!
We've got a couple of new products from Battlescale for you next, with another Clapboard House added to their range along with a second Mediterranean House too. All of the Battlescale products can be found on our website here.
Mon 25th Dec - Christmas Day!
