30 Slots Filled!

As expected, the rate of sales is slowing. We will likely see another bump around the first through the fifth as people are paid.

I have had some questions about the armor upgrade and making individual weapon arms available rather than a full set. I am always keen to do what I can and will speak to my caster on Monday to see if I can work something out.

If I can reach an agreement with the caster, I will be contacting all those who purchased an armor upgrade to find out if they would like to make any changes to their current order, and issuing any partial refunds that are applicable. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

23 Slots Filled!

I just wanted to give a tickler and say thank you to all the supporters who spent thier hard earned cash. We are now nearly half way through the open slots for the pre-orders, I expect the pace to slow from here, but time will tell.

The Leviathan Crusader seems to be the most popular at the moment and many orders have included extra weapons.

Please keep in mind the Crusader comes as pictured and any extra weapons will not have the added armor for the optional arms... If you need to have armor for these optional arms, pick up an Armor Upgrade and specify what weapon arms you need armor for. If you had allready placed an order and need to add this item, send me an email so that I can send you an invoice. That way your not paying full shipping fees for the added item.

Just a reminder, you may need to clear your browser cache if your not seeing this, when you go here.
IE has a nasty habit of not showing new content if you have visited a site before ;(

All the best,

DreamForge-Games is pleased to announce the release of the Leviathan Crusader!

Within the next few days, we will open up both the Leviathan Mortis and the Leviathan Crusader for Pre- Orders. Pre-Orders will be given at a reduced price for a limited quantity of models. I will update the website and announce the opening for pre-orders on the DreamForge-Games Blog. I expect to open pre-orders on Thursday the 28th or Friday the 29th of April and will make an announcement here on the DreamForge-Games Blog. 

This highly poseable model contains 143 plastic resin components and stands 8.5” tall to the shoulders. 9.5” tall including the reactor stacks. The assembled kit weighs nearly two pounds. The kit comes with all components required to build one Leviathan Crusader. (1) Main body legs and upper arms. (1) Right hand Vulkan Cannon (1) Left hand Executioners Blade (1) Armor Upgrade for listed components.
The Leviathan Crusader is armed with a right hand Vulkan Cannon and left hand Executioners Blade. The main weapon arms are hot swappable allowing for quick change out to any of the optional weapons available separately. Suitable for a display model or tabletop gaming.
*Not recommended for the novice model builder.
*Instructions for assembly are a web published PDF format.

Background Fluff:
The Crusader was developed to fill a need for a more heavily armored Leviathan. What was produced is widely regarded as the most balanced and finest design possible. Possessing remarkable speed and survivability while not sacrificing offensive capability, it is often compared to its 20th century counterpart the Panzerkampfwagen V (Panther tank).

It holds the distinction of being the most widely produced VR5 Leviathan in existence. The Crusader can be found in every faction’s arsenal. At 160 years old, the design is still innovative. Independent households often barter away vast planetary resources to acquire a Crusader as these Leviathans lend credibility and prestige to the households standing within its parent faction. A faction ruler knows that when the household is called upon to fight they will answer with a very capable force.

Eisenkern uses this Leviathan as a powerful bartering chit with The Brotherhood. Tithing ten per year to the order they have managed to make themselves indispensable. The Brotherhood, by its charter, cannot maintain Leviathan manufacturing capability. This often gains Eisenkern an unfair advantage in dispute resolution with other factions.

Armed with the Executioners Blade and the massive Vulkan Cannon the Crusader can own its corner of the battlefield. The supplementary armor adds considerable weight to the design but the twin Maybach reactors are still able to handle the extra load. Equipped with oil stacks the Crusader can overcharge its reactor and deliver a withering close combat attack as it channels power to the plasma blade. There has been some recent debate about replacing the oil stacks with capacitor coolers but most pilots are unwilling to give up the combat edge.

 What you need to know about the pre-orders:
1) There will be a limited number of pre-order slots available. (50)
2) I will give 30 days before closing the pre-orders, this may happen much sooner if the volume of orders is high and we reach our maximum 50 slots. (Limit of two kits per household)
3) Pre-orders must be paid in full with Paypal.
4) What can you expect for wait time before a package arrives at your door? (30 days (or less) to take all pre- orders, 45 to 60 days to receive the casts from the supplier, 3 to 5 days in transit to you if you live in the US or Canada, overseas shipping will take a bit longer).
5) Orders will be filled in the order that they were received.
6) You will be sent a tracking number when your order ships.

Pre-Order Price for kits:

Leviathan Mortis ($296.75 pre-order price) Retail $350.00

Leviathan Crusader ($306.75 pre-order price) Retail $375.00

Additional (optional) weapon arms and armor upgrade kits are also available at a reduced price.

Delivery within the US $15.25
Delivery to Canada or Mexico $32.15
Delivery to the rest of the world $48.83

Senji Studios, with more incredible terrain.

Pat Ohta over at Senji Studios put his creative talents to work with another piece of beutiful terrain. After seeing the background building pictured in the Leviathan Mortis CG render, he decided to make a terrain element based on the structure.  

I thinks it worth noting that Pat created this wonderful work free of charge… I’m just blown away by his generosity.  If you have the chance I highly recommend you drop by his web site.

Thanks again Pat!

Interview posted on Apocalypse 40k

I just completed an Interview with renowned prop man Alec Peters from Propworx. Evidently Alec is a fan of my work, I must admit I’m a fan of his as well. This gentleman has one hell of a job! He collects and sells movie props from big title productions, such as Star Trek, Star Gate and many others. You can find his website here.

In his off time he runs one of the largest 40k based Apocalypse clubs this side of the Mississippi. You can see the interview on his 40k blog here.

If you like HUGE games with BIG models his forum dedicated to all things Apocolypse is well worth the visit!... you can find it here.
