The Jovian Wars Kickstarter is to make a series of new high quality resin spaceship miniatures for the Jovian and CEGA factions of the Jovian Wars - Tabletop Wargame. These new spaceship miniature will be 1/4000 scale (about 3" to 5" in length) with the larger parts cast in high quality grey resin, smaller parts like the weapons and engine fins cast in pewter. They will each include a stand that will be laser etched and cut clear acrylic base with clear acrylic post. Checkout our proof of concept photo below with the remastered Poseidon for CEGA and Valiant for Jovian, to see how the final spaceships will look on their acrylic bases and acrylic rods, shown with a few of the pewter fleet scale exo and fighter squads primed in grey on their bases in front.

We are making all the new ships modular with standard connection points between the parts. Easy assembly is our goal with Engines, Cargo, and Habitat sections that have a large peg in the front to match holes in the back of the Cargo, Habitat and Forward Hull sections. We have also added small centered pilot holes on all the large pegs and in the holes for easy drilling and pinning of the parts if the players want. See the exploded parts view image below of the Birmingham and Majestic Fleet Carriers. Plus we have standard pegs on the sides of the forward hull sections to mount weapons, which all have matching holes in their underside. We even have these same standard pegs on the sides of the habitat ring or pod sections so players can customize their ships with small cargo containers and other parts, that are planned as stretch goals during the Kickstarter.

The size of the new and remastered Jovian Wars resin spaceship miniatures compared to the existing line of Jovian Chronicles spaceship miniatures is about about 25% bigger. The old ones were 1/5000 scale and the new ones are 1/4000 scale, both scales of miniatures will be legal in the game, but players with the older ships will need to get the new acrylic bases with resin adaptor part and old black plastic flight base post to mount the older ships on, as the new acrylic bases are used for the size and movement on the ships on tabletop. We decided on the scale increase so we could have larger pegs and holes for easy assembly of the ship components and standard mounting pegs for the weapons. Checkout the photo below with the old Poseidon and Valiant ships beside the new remastered ones.

SHIPPING: A fixed shipping cost of $16 CAD for Canadian Backers, $18 CAD (13.74 USD) for United States Backers, and $45 CAD ($34.35 USD) for International Backers will be charged after the Kickstarter is finished using PayPal. Please Do Not Add Shipping to your pledge as the Kickstarter Pledge Total. As we used the total to unlock stretch goals and all pledges received can not be applied to the shipping cost after the Kickstarter has ended.

Risks and challenges

Non-Completion of project: As a company with twenty years experience in completing game development projects the biggest risks to this project fall under the category of act of God. Such as our facilities themselves are damaged by a natural disaster.

These kind of unplanned delays do happen and any of them could delay the fulfillment of our backer rewards. We will be communicating regularly and openly about any delays so that you, our backers, are fully aware of any reasons for delays. Our commitment is to get you a great product and if delays happen in order to deliver on that promise then the expected delivery date will be re-evaluated. Since we will be producing the miniatures here in Canada we will not be affected by international shipping except for where it affects our rewards shipments.

We are keeping this kickstarter limited in scope to the Jovian and CEGA factions considering the vast selection of factions and spaceships available in Jovian Wars. We want to ensure a speedy fulfillment of rewards and when this project is completed we will be looking to future crowdfunding to fund additional projects for the other factions..

We have an excellent team lined up that is committed to completing this project.
