EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $44,727.00 CAD (updated on Sept. 19th, 2018)

 

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 early 2019.

NuCoal Plastic Model Sprues Preview Shown To Scale!

The NuCoal model sprues have finally been finished up for the Chasseur, Cuirassier, Jerboa, Chevalier plastic miniatures. Checkout the preview image shown below (click the image to see a larger version) with all four model sprues shown to scale and with rulers in millimeters (mm). We fit all of the models stock and variant weapon parts on the sprues, along with extra pose lower arms and legs in most cases. Plus extra parts like hand grenades, ammo clip, and boxes to add around the hips like our original pewter models have. And like all our newer models they have ball sockets to connect the torso to the shoulders and hips for a wide variety of poses. Plus the lower arms are separate parts that can be rotated in or away from the torso and glued in the position you like.

Checkout the full update on our Kickstarter page which includes a link to downloadable 3d PDF of the Jerboa model parts sprue which you can zoom in on, rotate, and see all the details up close. Here is a link to the Kickstarter update page.

We received the rapid prototypes last week for the Venus Brunnhilde Fighter, Rye Exo-Armor, and Bonebreaker Exo-Armor. The production molds were made earlier this week and I took photos of the first pewter sets to be cast-up. Then assembled a squad of each, primed them in grey, and took a group photo of the three new Venus releases, checkout the attached image to see how they turned out.

Kickstarter Update: New North & South Test Pop Plastic Models!

This weeks update shows the new Northern and Southern test pop plastic models. We took the time to put together one of each of the Northern models (Hunter, Jaguar, Cheetah, Grizzly, Kodiak, and Ferret shown in both walker and ground mode), see the photo below. Plus the Southern models (Jager, Black Mamba, Iguana, Spitting Cobra, King Cobra, and the 3 Drones), see the photo below. These were all assembled from the test plastic pop sprues we received from the mold manufacturer last week to test where problems are in the molds, they still have some holes and shrinkage on the parts.

Kickstarter Update: First Plastic Test Pops of the C.E.F. Sprues!

We received the test plastic pops for all the molds this week at our office in Montreal. The test pops are used by the mold manufacturer find where problems like not enough molten plastic making it in to the mold parts cavities are located. The test plastic sprue pops show them where additional spruing, ejector pins, and/or increased gate sizes to the parts are needed. We took the time this week to look over all the parts and get our comments back to them so they can tweak the molds to get all the plastic parts looking good.
