EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $46,620.00 CAD (updated on March 24th, 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 Summer 2019.

Peace River & NuCoal Kickstarter Update: Mold 1 & 2 Plates CNC, Shipping Update, and Painted Black Wind & Arbalestier Minis!

We have approved plans for plastic injection mold 1 (Chasseur, Cuirassier, Warrior, and Warrior) and mold 2 (Chevalier, Jerboa, Crusader IV, and Skirmisher) and work has started on making the robot sprue plates. Today's update includes photos below of a few robot sprue plates (Sides A & B) that have their cavities roughed out using CNC machine drill. They still need to have the EDM process done to them, where the very fine details are electrically burned into the cavities. It should take the mold manufacture over in China a little over a month to finish molds 1 and 2. Then they will start testing the molds and get the first test pops of plastic will be made and sent to our office in Montreal to approve in late April or early May. We then look over the test pops and get back to them with any issues we spot and they fix the mold plates accordingly and then send us new sets of test pops to check and approve. With out first Kickstarter it took 3 sets of test pops over a month before the molds were finalized and approved, we expect it to go about the same this time.

We expect to see the mold 3 plans shortly for the Utopia Forces Kickstarter robot sprues and once those are approved the mold production company has promised to get it made as fast as possible so that it will ship at the same time as molds 1 & 2. We are behind schedule of the Kickstarter and the expected April 2019 shipping date will need to be pushed back to this summer. As we expected the test pops and final mold approval to take a month and then shipping of the 3 molds from China to Canada to take another month. And then the local Canadian plastics manufacturer we'll be using here in Montreal will take another few weeks to prepare the molds and get all the plastic robot sprues popped and deliver to out office. We hope to receive them late July, and start packing and shipping backer reward packages shortly after.

Also this week, we got some of the new resin and pewter minis painted up. Checkout the Peace River Black Wind VTOL resin mini painted up and the NuCoal Arbalestier Gear pewter mini, both running and standing poses painted up and decals added with photos taken for different angles.

We've had a few backers ask if we unlocked more stretch goals after the Kickstarter ended and the answer is yes. When we opened the DP9 Pledge Manager we unlocked all the way to SG#09. So now the Peace River Army includes 1x Peace River faction patch, 6x Warrior, 6x Warrior IV, 3x Crusader IV, and 3x Skirmisher plastic minis. The NuCoal Army includes 1x NuCoal faction patch, 6x Chasseur, 6x Cuirassier, 3x Chevalier, and 3x Jerboa plastic minis, Both are great Army Commander Reward Level packages with faction patch and 18 plastic minis for just $70 CAD pledged each. And our Badlands Commander Reward Level at $100 CAD pledged is an amazing deal with both Peace River and NuCoal Army Commander packages combines (both faction patches and 36 plastic minis). There is still time get in on these great Peace River & NuCoal and Utopia Kickstarters deals, here is a link to the DP9 Pledge Manager for all interested in becoming Outside Backers.

We'll keep everyone updated on the mold production status and shipping as we have any news to report.
