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.

JC Fleet Scale Exo-Armors in Pewter!

Dave made the production molds for the small Jovian Chronicles Fleet Scale Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armors today. I grabbed a set of the first pewter castings and took parts photos for each of the new two squad packs. After that I primed the exos-armors in grey and painted the 3 pronged poseable flight posts in black and assembled the squads. The image below shows the primed Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armor squad bases in front of Athena and Hachiman Spaceships with the pewter parts photos below.

Kickstarter Update: Steel Mold Plates Photos.

This week we have a progress update on the steel mold plates for the plastic injections molds. The company making the molds sent us some early progress photos of some of the steel mold plates. The image below shows the first step in making the molds plates, where they use a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine is used to rough out the mold cavities. There is an photo of the CNC Machine cutting one of the mold plates at the bottom of the image. This removes most of the excess steel, but does not do the fine details in the parts cavities.
