EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $46,028.00 CAD (updated on March 17st, 2019)

 

DP9's Extra Funding Campaign for our Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures is now live on the DP9 Pledge Manager website. Our Kickstarter raised over $40K CAD, unlocking our initial funding goal and numerous stretch goals, but not the $50K CAD goal we really wanted to reach. Hence our Extra Funding Campaign, please support Dream Pod 9 as an Outside Backer and pickup a new plastic miniatures army for Peace River, NuCoal, and/or Utopia at $70 CAD each, or one of our other great Backer reward level deals and maybe a few Add-Ons as well.

Login and create your pledge manager account, select your reward level and any add-ons and then checkout paying your pledge and fixed shipping cost. Backer reward packages are expected to start shipping in March 2019.

Feedback Friday March 15th 2019 - HGB Rules 3.0 ALPHA v1.3 Update!

Welcome again to another Feedback Friday. What a time to be alive! The Rooster has been working hard this last week reading everyone's feedback and making edits to polish the upcoming HGB rules update. Plus looking at a few more topics, this week including Objectives, Orders, and more. You can checkout the full "HGB Rules 3.0 ALPHA v1.3 Update" post with links to download the updated Alpha Rules word file and other excel files on the DP9 Forum at the link below, login and join the discussion.

One of this weeks focuses is Objectives. We previously removed the UAs from the objectives for various reasons. It has been pointed out that it's probably better if we tweak them instead of removing them from the objective selection process as that can be a way to counter OP tank spamming and allow other units to compete on a level field. Please checkout the Objectives post at the link below and make sure you are part of this conversation as this will impact the game-play significantly.

Orders is another major element that emphasizes commanders, formations and affects game-play directly. We would like to note that the majority of the new proposals for orders came from the players, as that means we have a system that empowers the players to be a part of the development process. Check out the new Orders ideas (Try Again, Take Cover, Pop Smoke, ECM Defense Up, Charge, and Let Them Have It) and let us know what you like, don't like, concerns, or other ideas at the post link below.

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.
