Delay in Forged in Fire Delivery Date

Wed, 12/12/2012 - 14:22
To our loyal customers and fans,

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the hard copy of Forged in Fire has been delayed and we will be unable to deliver it before Christmas. The book will ship out automatically when it has returned from the printers.

Every effort is currently being made to get the e-book version of Forged in Fire to everyone who is entitled to it before the 24th of December.

The good news is that miniature orders will ship as soon as they are ready and the first batch should go out soon.  For those who have pre-ordered the Southern Bundles, your orders will ship in two parts, the first part being the miniatures and the second part being the book.

To demonstrate our sincere regret at this delay and hopefully regain some of your good will,  if you pre-ordered the book or bundle, you will receive a 10% discount on your next purchase.

All pre-order customers will also receive the Dream Pod 9 2012 Holiday Miniature, the Iguana MP.

We’re sorry to have to bring you this disappointing news and apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.

Sincerely,

The Dream Pod 9 Team

New Southern Miniature Sneak Peeks

Thu, 11/29/2012 - 01:24

We've teamed up with Frontline Gamer to release some new photos of miniatures that will be part of Forged in Fire: Southern Field Guide. Click the links below to see their exclusive coverage of these new miniatures.

The Diamondback is an upgrade for certain Southern cadres and is a favorite of many Arena pilots. It has a very distinctive torso to maximize pilot protection and give it an edge in close combat. 

The Salamander and Street Viper are part of the new Southern City Militia Cadre.The Salamander has a very distinctive new SMS (Secondary Movement System) with massive off-road tires and an aggressive head design. The Street Viper has a similar SMS design, but is a lightly armored design built to nimbly maneuver around urban environments.

New Hybrid Resin & Pewter Miniatures

Sat, 09/22/2012 - 13:38

Dream Pod 9 has started to convert some of our Heavy Gear Blitz Resin Miniature blisters into Hybrid Resin and Pewter kits. The larger parts will remain in our high quality resin and the small parts such as weapons, antenna, etc. with be switched over to pewter metal. The main reason for the new Hybrid kits is that small metal parts like antennas and guns will be less likely to snap off if a miniature is dropped. The first of these new Hybrid kits is the Hussar Walker for the NuCoal faction, you check out the Hybrid Parts photo below. Other miniatures that have been converted include the Fusilier Hovertank, Voltigeur Main Battletank, HT-68 Hovertank, HT-72 Hovertank, Mammoth Strider, and Naga Strider.

We will be updating the parts photos on the DP9 Online Store in the coming week and as other miniatures are converted.
