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.

Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Peace River Uhlan Strider Resin Add-On Model.

One last treat for our Peace River players today as we continue filling more of their army options. Checkout the 3d model image of the new Uhlan Strider below. We did some redesign on the model as the original artwork had the rocket packs mounting points on the shoulders, which didn't look nice unless the arms were kept in a static pose. The Uhlan will be available as a resin kit, with all variant parts included, plus parts for a planned new Tank Hunter Upgrade. It will be available as Add-Ons in the upcoming Kickstarter #2 in late September / early October and later this year on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store.

We are busy this week pulling together elements for the upcoming Kickstarter. We got back updated Utopian 3d models this weekend and and out next update will show them. Updated Peace River 3d models based on everyone's feedback for the earlier previews are being worked on by the modeler. Previews of the NuCoal 3d models are planned for later this week.

The Hammers of the North

 

 

As Dream Pod 9's Art Director, one of the real pleasures of producing the new series of Field Guides for the factions of the Heavy Gear Universe is revisiting some canonical designs and attempting to further enrich them. Part of this is seeing whether the faction logo or emblem can simply be nuanced, modernized, or whether it can be detailed in a way that touches on some of the faction characteristics in more detail.
