EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $45,822.00 CAD (updated on Dec. 30th, 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.

Utopia Kickstarter Plastic Injection Mold Update!

Work has started at the mold production company over in China on the plastic injection mold for the Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter plastic models. This week we received the mold flow analysis for all Utopia model sprues. The update includes a graphic with images of various mold flow analysis tests done on the sprues that will be used to determine where to place additional entry points for the molten plastic so that it reaches and completely fills all the parts. As well as water cooling pipes and sprue ejector pins needed in the molds.

We should receive the final mold plans in the next week or two for approval and then work will start on cutting the mold plates. Followed by Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) processing to burn all the fine part details in the steel mold plates. Once we have the plans we'll do another update and share progress reports and photos as molds are prepared.

GenCon 2013 is Coming!

We'll be at GenCon this August! Check out our full GenCon event page with information on the events we'll be running and more as this huge convention draws near.

Maps are Back!

They're still being tested a bit, but maps shoudl be back on various pages, mainly those for the Retailer List and Events. If I missed any let me know!

 

The new maps are prettier, the code required is a lot less than for the old maps (so better for mobile users) and I think the new map style is a bit nicer looking and functional, with some useful markings for subway stations and such, at least in areas. We can also do some fun special looks if it's useful.

May 10th Single Packs and Weekly Featured Product

This week we have three new single pack releases. NuCoal's Chasseur Paratrooper and Jerboa Paratrooper provide some airdroppable firepower to NuCoal forces. The South's Fer de Lance is one of the most advanced, and elite, Gears in the Southern armory, and has been issued to Southern Republic Honor Guard Cadres as a hard-hitting symbol of the skill and technical prowess of the Republic.
