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.

War for Terra Nova - Kickstarter


The Heavy Gear Blitz - War for Terra Nova - Plastic Miniatures Core Starter Set Kickstarter was successfully funded. We raised just over $150K CAD to produce molds needed to make plastic miniatures for our Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame.

We have opened the Pledge Manager up to accept new backers for our Core Starter Set (51 plastic miniatures, backer patch and color quick start rulebook) at $115 CAD plus $15 shipping for US and Canadian backers and exact shipping for International backers, which is differed until later in 2015 we know the exact shipping weight.
