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.

Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Argos Model

This weeks preview is the Argos model for Peace River, which is their answer to the North's Kodiak and South's King Cobra models. The stock Argos model has a Heavy Rotary Cannon, Medium Artillery Rockets on it's back, and a Medium Vibro Blade (Axe). With this larger model we are trying a new 3 part poseable arm configuration, where the shoulder is hollow with slots for the upper arm to be positioned (angled) wider out and lower arm rotated in towards or away from the body and glued as wanted, checkout the image below with these and other detail improvements and information.

One cool addition to Solidworks 3d software used to make the models is the ability to save the parts and assembly models as 3d PDFs. Click the link below to our latest HGB Kickstarter update, which has a link to download the new Argos 3d PDF.
