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.

Phil has been busy in July, after he painted up the new Northern and Southern plastic miniature armies. He cranked out our latest Chibi Gear, the Southern King Cobra, with its We're #1 Hand Sign to taunt the Northern Chibi Gears. He then painted it up with an amazing Southern Republic Red and Gold paint scheme. To quote Mel Brooks "Its Good to be the King". The red and gold contrasts well with the previous Chibi Gear release of the Northern Kodiak and its Blue and Silver paint scheme.
