EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $45,161.00 CAD (updated on Nov. 2nd, 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 March 2019.

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.
