Heavy Gear Blitz Kickstarter Launching October 2017


Plans are to launch our second Kickstarter for Heavy Gear Blitz, in October 2017. The goal of the Kickstarter will be to make plastic miniatures for the core Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopian faction models. We are still working some of the 3d models and have been previewing them on our Dream Pod 9 Facebook page to get feedback from our fans. Once everything is ready to go, tentatively in early to mid-October, we'll launch the Kickstarter.

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.
