Following up on the Armoured Riverboats, our next Optional Rule for Blitzkrieg Commander IV is the Armoured Trains! These are always a popular request so you can now add these to your games! We might have to get one sculpted and added to our ranges now...! This free pdf can be found here: https://pendraken.co.uk/ProductImages/BKC-IVOptionalRulesArmouredTrains.pdf
Well this might be the most bizarre thing to ever happen in our 27 years! A copy of Blitzkrieg Commander IV, bound for a chap in the US, has been opened, emptied and replaced with some Russian Evangelical Voice pamphlets...! We don't know if the perpetrator was just that desperate to get a copy of the new rules or why some of the text translates as Money Break 2019...? Does anyone know what the hell is going on?!
Our next Specialist Rule for BKC-IV is Armoured Riverboats! These boats were specific to Soviet forces and can provide some interesting scenario options, so head over and download the free pdf here: https://pendraken.co.uk/ProductImages/BKC-IVOptionalRulesArmouredRiverboats.pdf
We're now stocking a variety of the Javis products! Including static grasses, scatters, as well as flexible hedges and walls, these are now available on both of our sites: https://pendraken.co.uk/grasses-scatters/ and http://www.minibits.net/grasses-scatters/
We've given you a bit of time to read through the rules and maybe get a game or two in, so it's time for some Specialist Rules! First up we've got the Mother Russia strikes, allowing you to simulate the Russian use of concetrated artillery strikes for tactical breakthroughs or against massing opposition forces. This is a free pdf and can be found here: https://buff.ly/2UB0bah #10mm #wargaming #pendraken #wwii #blitzkriegcommander
We'd also like to thank everyone who helped get BKC-IV completed and into print. These people playtested, they gave feedback and suggestions, they proof-read, they advised on lists, they were invaluable in getting these rules finished and ready for you to play. So take a bow Owain Atkins, Mark Bevis, Antoine Bourguilleau, Andrew Bruce, Mike Burton, Peter Cooman, Richard Devonshire, Trevor L. Ford, Nik Harwood, Meirion Hopkins, Dave James, Steve Johnson, Nowfel Leulliot, Gordon Malcolm, Alan Millicheap, Shaun Mutton, Richard Phillips, Dave Pike, Steve Price, Todd Reed, Mike Sheppard, Stewart Stevens, Terry Terry, Rodger Williams and Mal Wright! And of course, our author Mark Fry who pulled it all together!

With all of the replacement copies of BKC-IV shipped out, and a lot of new buyers getting their hands on a copy as well, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you!⠀ ⠀ We want to thank everyone who waited for us to get BKC fixed and back in your hands, we appreciate how patient and understanding you've been throughout this process and we hope you enjoy the new rules. ⠀ ⠀ Our revision team have put a tremendous amount of effort into fixing the mistakes of BKC-III and we’ve used an extensive feedback group to read through and playtest them. There will always be little niggles here and there but the response to the new rules has been extremely positive.⠀ ⠀ BKC-III damaged the reputation of the Commander series but we hope that by fixing the problems and getting the rules back into print that we’ve helped to restore some faith and fix a lot of that damage. ⠀ ⠀ We’d now like to ask you a favour if possible. We need to make sure that everyone is aware of the new rules so if anyone you know hasn’t heard about BKC-IV, or still believes that BKC-III is the latest version, please point them towards the new edition. ⠀ We want to get people playing BKC and re-build the community again, so please post your battle reports and pictures on your blogs, Facebook pages and our Forum, and we’ll share them around the wider community as well.⠀ ⠀ The QRS and Optional Rules are already available on the Pendraken Forum and we’ll be releasing a series of extra army lists, scenarios and more Optional Rules over the coming weeks and months.⠀ ⠀ Finally, thank you again for your patience throughout this process, it means a lot to us.⠀ ⠀ Leon
