Jovian Chronicles News!


Several years back Phil sculpted some small Fleet Scale Lancer and Wraith Fighters for Jovian Chronicles. They were made for a planned Fleet Scale version of Jovian Chronicles, that was never completed, back around the time we did our Heavy Gear Fleet Scale game. We finally located the models that had been stored away and added a small ball socket hole on the underside of each of them. These small fighter 2 squad packs are now available to purchase for the first time. If we get enough interest (orders) for the new fleet scale fighters there will be fleet scale exos in the future and maybe a few new spaceships as well. Here is a link to the Jovian Chronicles Miniatures section of the online store for all interested in supporting a rebirth of Jovian Chronicles.

Plus, we also have some of the Jovian Chronicles 2nd Edition Lightning Strike Rulebooks and Companions still available for purchase.

Jovian Wars Update: Painted CEGA and Jovian Fleet Scale Exo-Armors and Fighters!

A special update today with all the painted up CEGA and Jovian fleet scale Exo-Armors and Fighters shown in their typical paint schemes. A big thank you to Martin Takaichi and Todd Farnholtz for helping with the painting and photos of all the small pewter miniatures. The graphic took a while to get made as all the miniature photos needed to be close cut and then properly scaled to one another in Photoshop. Most of the Exos-Armors are about 15mm tall (not counting the plasma lances carried by some of the Commander models) and the larger Stormrider is 19mm tall and Dragonstriker is 22mm tall.

 

If a few more backers decide to up their Captain or Commodore Reward Levels to add the +All of Exo & Fighter Add-Ons for an extra $100 CAD (about $76 USD) pledge we'll hit the $14,500 and be able to unlock the next 5 ships and new Admiral Reward Levels for everyone.

Also, from our previous update we promised images of the Forge with unlocked Stretch Goal 6 parts added and the Ypres with Stretch Goal 7 parts added once SG7 is unlocked.

Thank You All, for your support and help getting the word out about the Jovian Wars Kickstarter. Here is a link to the Kickstarter page to go check it out.

We have decided to shake things up a bit today, as the Kickstarter stalled over the weekend. So the staff got together over Skype on Sunday to discuss Backer messages and feedback. We came to the conclusion that Backers want the new ships first and not smaller stretch goals with extra cargo, fuel pods, and parts, so we brainstormed and reworked the Kickstarter plan.
