Phil has been having fun sculpting a cute new Chibi Gear for our 2015 Xmas Gift. His latest master piece is a Chibi Kodiak with Hawaiian Hang Loose Hand Sign and painted up in the Northern Blue Angels regimental color scheme. The attached image includes Chibi Kodiak front and back views, resin parts photo and with the Chibi Hunter and Jager for scale. The miniature stands 50mm tall by 80mm wide when assembled.

We asked our artist, John Bell, to make a Chibi Thanksgiving Gear for the holiday and he came up with a Chibi King Cobra in turkey color scheme for you all to enjoy. The Thanksgiving Holiday is a time to visit with family, talk, eat turkey, watch some football, and prepare yourselves mentally for the madness that is Black Friday to come.

If there is one thing that has always attracted me to the world of Heavy Gear it's that though there is a lot of military conflict it occurs in a world that is distinctly not post apocalyptic. If anything society could be on the cusp of a golden age like has never been seen in the history of humanity. And while this world of conflicting ideologies creates more than enough dynamic tension, even if it is not in the context of an invasion of Earth forces, sometimes you kind of want to play the bad guy.
Almost uniquely Heavy Gear does not have any defined bad guy, an evil nation. Even the Earth government does not go in for wholesale murder or genocide, though what is happening via geoengineering on Utopia and Eden might qualify. No, I'm talking about the Mad Max scenario. Like many I went to see the film and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't drive a car within two hours of seeing that film, you'll get pulled over for sure.

There’s lots of pictures and videos out there about casting using centrifugal spinning but I thought it would amuse my blog readers to take a break from announcements and updates for a peek under the hood of Dream Pod 9’s metal casting.
First off there is the rubber blank, I have cut the pre-punched center hole out, it will be replaced with a metal form to hold the space for pouring in the metal.
