EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $45,936.00 CAD (updated on Jan. 31st, 2019)

 

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.

Venus Kickstarter Update: More Venus Ship Pewter Weapon Parts, plus Kaminari & Korikaze Pewter Exo Armors!

All the Venus ship weapons and exo armor 3d printed parts we showed in our last update were cleaned up and silicone molds made. Then copies of the parts were caste from them in high temperature resistant Task 8 resin. The Task 8 resin parts are used to make the vulcanized rubber molds needed for spin casting the final pewter weapon parts and exo armors. Checkout the images attached with photos of the Task 8 resin parts and final pewter weapon parts. And image with photos of the Task 8 resin Kaminari & Korikaze exo parts, steps in the vulcanized mold making process and some of the final pewter exo armors.

We did have a problem with the Reinzi Bomber mold, we tried to have the bomber as one pewter piece, but the nose section of all the models got crushed in the molding process and the resulting pewter minis didn't look good. So we have decided to have the left and right wings of the Reinzi as separate parts along with the central body. New 3d parts are being printed this week, and we should receive them at our office in about 2 weeks. Then we'll get them cleaned up and go thru the same process to make a new vulcanized rubber mold for the Reinzi that we are sure will work very well. We expect to still be able to start shipping Backer Reward Packages at the end of March.

A reminder, we have opened our Jovian Wars - Venus Forces Kickstarter Pledge Manager website to outside backers from now to the end of March 2019. Here is a link to the pledge manager for all interested.
