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.

Kickstarter Update: Painted Caprice Army Preview!

Another amazing paint job from Jean-Denis Rondeau, this time the new plastic mounts for Caprice. We added some logos and numbering decals to them and then took a ton of photos of the Caprice Army and closeups of the different mounts. Check them out below to see how they turned out.

Correction to our previous Plastic Injection Molds Update. We were told by our freight logistics company to expected the molds to arrive on Monday (June 20th) of this week at the plastics manufactures in Indianapolis. But we receive updated tracking from them on Tuesday morning showing the shipping container was still in transit to Chicago first and then would go on to Indianapolis and it will arrive there on June 28th. Sorry for the inaccurate information that we posted in the previous update.

Kickstarter Update: New North & South Test Pop Plastic Models!

This weeks update shows the new Northern and Southern test pop plastic models. We took the time to put together one of each of the Northern models (Hunter, Jaguar, Cheetah, Grizzly, Kodiak, and Ferret shown in both walker and ground mode), see the photo below. Plus the Southern models (Jager, Black Mamba, Iguana, Spitting Cobra, King Cobra, and the 3 Drones), see the photo below. These were all assembled from the test plastic pop sprues we received from the mold manufacturer last week to test where problems are in the molds, they still have some holes and shrinkage on the parts.

Kickstarter Update: First Plastic Test Pops of the C.E.F. Sprues!

We received the test plastic pops for all the molds this week at our office in Montreal. The test pops are used by the mold manufacturer find where problems like not enough molten plastic making it in to the mold parts cavities are located. The test plastic sprue pops show them where additional spruing, ejector pins, and/or increased gate sizes to the parts are needed. We took the time this week to look over all the parts and get our comments back to them so they can tweak the molds to get all the plastic parts looking good.

After that I primed the exos-armors in grey and painted the 3 pronged poseable flight posts in black and assembled the squads.
