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: Crusader IV Model

This weeks preview is the Crusader IV model for Peace River, with stock Heavy Autocannon, Linked Medium Rockets, back mounted Light Field Mortar, and Medium Vibro Blade (Axe). With this larger model we are trying a new 4 part poseable arm configuration, where the shoulder is hollow with slots on the inside for the upper arm to be positioned (angled) wider out. Plus slots on the front and back for the shoulders armor plate to be able to rotate up as the arm is positioned wider. The lower arm can be rotated in towards or away from the body and glued as wanted, checkout the below attached with these and other detail improvements and information.

One cool addition to Solidworks 3d software used to make the models is the ability to save the parts and assembly models as 3d PDFs. Click the link below to our latest HGB Kickstarter update, which has a link to download the new Crusader IV 3d PDF.

We'll continue tweaking the Crusader IV parts up until the Kickstarter launch in mid-September to get the best new plastic models possible. The next Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter preview will be models from the Utopia Faction and then on to NuCoal.

Kickstarter Update: Shipping Update & New Resin Arm Sets Available!

We finished shipping all the Wave 1 and Heavy Gear Universe (except for UK/EU that will ship in Wave 4) Backer reward packages last week and started on Wave 2. To date we have shipped 434 backer reward packages, its taking a bit longer than expected, as US Customs is requiring us to include detailed invoices for all the packages that we bring in to the USA for shipping with US Post. The pledge manager makes packing slips, but not detailed invoices, so its adding hours of paperwork on to each shipping we make.
