Jovian Wars Update: Assembled Jovian and CEGA Ships - plus Jovian Wars Kickstarter #2: Venus Preview!

Since returning from Gen Con we've been playing catch up at work. Last week Fusion Models delivered the final resin model parts we needed to get all the Jovian and CEGA Ships assembled. I took the time this weekend to glue the final resin ship parts and pewter weapons together and take photos of the parts for each ship and of the assembled ships. See below a group photo of the assembled resin and pewter Jovian ships and a top view photo as well. Plus group photo of the assembled resin and pewter CEGA ships and a top view photo as well.

Fusion Models finished up the molds for the Jovian Gagarin Fleet Tender spaceship and made the first castings of resin parts. The image below includes photos of the assembled Hold Section and the black resin cradle parts that mount on the acrylic base plate. The Hold Section has 3 outer panels that can be rotated to close the tender bay, most of the photos except one show the panels rotated below and the bay fully open. Plus one shows a remastered Uller spaceship inside the tender bay and a ruler below for exact size of the Hold Section.

Design evolution

Casting hundred of pieces this week for the Jovian Wars Kickstarter resin models I was reflecting on how some models started off as a clear design archetypes and yet became even better as the player suggestions really ramped up.

 

For anyone not in the know, DP9 had a kickstarter for our new game, Jovian Wars, and it was awesome. 143 great backers raised over $25000 to unlock a whole new generation of ship models and remaster all the older Jovian Chronicles ship models in resin. Add in new bases for better stability and to make measuring, firing arcs, and turning easier and we have an exciting new game. The rules as well have received a lot of attention. Today I'm going to look at one of the remastered models for the CEGA faction, the Uller.

This week we finished making the vulcanized rubber production molds, needed for casting all the small pewter weapons and spaceship parts. Check out the photos below taken in casting area at Dream Pod 9's office, with our 2 spin casting machines and trays full of pewter parts. The parts all turned out very good, you can see a closeup of the Triple Kinetic Cannons (bottom left) and the Engine Fins for the Jovian Engine (bottom right). Larger spaceship parts (main hull, habitat section, engine section, etc.) will be cast in resin.
