EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $44,761.00 CAD (updated on Oct. 7th, 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.

We have sent off all the 3d files (Utopia, Peace River, and NuCoal) to mold manufactures in China to get final quotes for the best price and then we'll get the mold production started later this month. We expect the molds to be finished before the end of the year and shipped to the plastics manufacturer we have selected he in Canada to get all the plastic sprues popped in early 2019.
