All our Prayers are with Ghislain & His Family

We extend our condolences and the condolences of our community to Ghislain Barbe and his family. We learned on Friday, September 9th, 2016 that, Marie-Claude Girard, wife of Ghislain and mother to their 3 daughters, passed away after a long battle with cancer.

Ghislains amazing artwork has brought our science fiction worlds to life for all our fans and that was made possible by his loving wife, Marie-Claude. Now during this difficult time, all our prayers are with him and his family.

Notes of condolence can be left on his Facebook page at the following link.

Kickstarter Plastic Model Sprues Arrived at DP9 Office Today!

FedEx Freight arrived at 9:45 am at our office here in Montreal and dropped off 7 skids of boxes with all the plastic model sprues for our Kickstarter backer reward packages and online pre-orders.

Kickstarter Update: Plastic Miniature Sprues Arriving Friday!

Over 2500 lbs of plastic miniature sprues all boxed up and on 7 skids were shipped out earlier this week by Models LLC via FedEx Freight. The latest updated tracking shows that we should receive them at our office here in Montreal this Friday.

Models LLC took a photo of the boxes of sprues on skids as they were being picked up earlier this week by FedEx Freight and sent us the photo included below with the post, to share with everyone.

T minus 24...

We are now T minus 24 hours from when FedEx Freight is supposed to be delivering the seven pallets of plastic sprues that we need to complete the kickstarter rewards. What will follow will be a whirlwind of packing. 

It's been a lot of work by many people to make this happen. In particular don't forget to go on the forum to thank Robert Dubois, the owner of Dream Pod 9. He put in months and months of work researching how to make the kickstarter function the best and then has been putting in seven day weeks ever since from guiding the 3D model development to the exact sizes of boxes required. He's done all this while also keeping the company operating smoothly. (Thanks Rob! I enjoy this job!)

Amazingly enough he also found time between kickstarter deadlines to help bring out the new fleet scale line of Jovian Chronicles figures. This led directly to discussions about the advantages and flaws of the current Jovian Chronicles rules set in terms of adaptability for the fleet scale models. After much discussion I convinced Rob to let me do some development work with the aim of making and releasing a game specifically designed for the miniatures and the setting we have.

First Gencon, then the world.

So, Gencon happened.

By now everyone has seem the various pics from Gencon. If you haven't then you should head over to the Dream Pod 9 Face Book page right away and look at the pictures posted over several days at the Dream Pod 9 booth.

As usual with this kind of event there was a lot to see and a lot to do. Getting there was also part of the experience. 

 

Gen Con 2016 Chibi King Cobra Resin Mini!

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.
