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.

Assembling your Jovian Fleet scale figures

One of the best things about tabletop wargaming is assembling your fleet/army. Cracking open that clam shell pack of new miniatures is always fun. But sometimes you open something new and there are some tricks, or hacks, that can really help you get the great results you want. I'm going to share ones that I've found help with the new Jovian Chronicals fleet scale figures and base stems.

Dave had time this week to make the production molds made for the JC Fleet Scale CEGA Dragonstriker (Ace model), Wyvern Marine & Wyvern Bomber (Specialist models) Exo Armor 2 Packs. Plus the Venus Sakura (Ace model), Ryu Anti-Ship & Ryu Interceptor (Specialist models) Exo Armor 2 Packs.
