Pendrakens New 10mm American Civil War Range Part 2

A few months ago I posted some photos of Pendraken’s new Confederate and Union infantry. Since then Pendraken has releases some photos of their new specialty troops including Zouaves and the Iron Brigade.  Let’s take a take a look at these new troops.

First up, we have the Zouaves. One of my biggest complaints about Pendrakens current ACW range is that they only offer Zouaves in kepi. Thanks to all the requests on Pendrakens forum that issue has been corrected with their new range. Pendrakens new range will now offer Zouaves in Fez, Turban, Kepi and Straw hats. Each type will come in four poses.

Next up, we have the Iron Brigade. They will come in four marching poses and three command poses. Personally, I’m very excited to see these troops because they were lacking from the current range.

Next, we have Berdan’s Sharpshooters. They will come in four poses and three command poses. After these photos were posted on Pendrakens forum there was a comment made about the lack of a firing pose. The poses that are offered are really nice but I do agree that a sharpshooter unit should have a firing pose.

Finally, we have Infantry in Greatcoats. These figures will come in four poses (two Union and two Confederate) and three command poses. To be honest the lack of poses offered here maybe a disappointment if you were planning on painting a lot of these. Personally, I have no plans to paint any Infantry in Greatcoats, so this is not a problem for me.

Since my last post the release date for these new figures has been pushed back to May. Next time we will take a look at the new mounted and dismounted Cavalry figures.

  1. Shame about the release date slipping. Inevitable as they seem to be taking on board what people are saying on their forum which is good.
