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.

We finished packing up all the Wave 4 Backer Reward Packages this week. On Thursday afternoon TNT Express came by to pick the two skids of UK and EU Backer Reward Packages that are shipping by air freight to our forwarder, Wayland Games, in the UK. They should receive the skids later next week once they have reached the UK and cleared customs. Then the staff at Wayland Games will add the needed Royal Mail postage to all pre-labelled and boxed Backer Reward Packages and drop them off at the post office. UK and EU Backers should start receiving their packages the week of October 10th, 2016.

Checkout the attached photo, of Dave with the 2 skids of 195 UK and EU Backer Reward Packages weighting in at 316 KG (695 lbs.) total, before he wrapped them both up with stretch wrap. We are shipping the last of the Wave 4 international backer packages and a few stragglers this Friday and then all backer packages, that had their shipping paid will have been shipped. We still have 10 backers that need to get their shipping paid and then they will be shipped and the first Kickstarter will be completed. If your one of those 10 (1 American, 3 Australian, 6 British) check your emails and try to get the payment in as soon as possible and well get the reward package mailed out.

Thank you all for your amazing support of our first Kickstarter.

Kickstarter Update: Shipping Update & New Resin Arm Sets Available!

We finished shipping all the Wave 1 and Heavy Gear Universe (except for UK/EU that will ship in Wave 4) Backer reward packages last week and started on Wave 2. To date we have shipped 434 backer reward packages, its taking a bit longer than expected, as US Customs is requiring us to include detailed invoices for all the packages that we bring in to the USA for shipping with US Post. The pledge manager makes packing slips, but not detailed invoices, so its adding hours of paperwork on to each shipping we make.
