As the Prydian civil war rumbled and then began to roar its way across the Prydian Precinct there started to emerge a need for more structures. While the Seorc Compono Guild (SCG) revolutionised rapid settlement construction with the Habitation Dome Riser System (HDRS) the hugely successful 'Hab Domes' were still time consuming to ship across the core systems and beyond and also to assemble once at their destination. Added to that the twin arising demands for structures suitable for friendly atmospheres (non lethal) at a lower cost and the increasing numbers of war disposed and the pioneers of SEORC put their minds to the challenge. Ubiquitous Rubbacrete and Golglass were too heavy and expensive (titanium alloy being at a premium) and there was no need for towers and landing pads this time.
The solution lay in the Kabeatan research station on New Glastonbury. At the northern pole this station sat atop a deep dig into the ice. The workers, fabricators and seekers who resided there did so in a little used SEORC design; the Geo Shelter. The Geo Shelters were made of a thin titanium alloy skeleton with a dense carbon weave fabric stretched over it. Resistant to cold but simple and durable these structures were used as Accommodation and as Storage was well as for Laboratories with purpose made components added to them to suit their functions. There was even a Defender version armed with a Moth 88 Rotary cannon in a turret mount a defence against roving packs of Darga which ranged across the tundra. These SEORC Geo Shelters fitted the bill and a massive fabrication plant was founded.
While lacking the more permanent facilities of Hab Domes the SEORC Geo Shelters were shipped out in their millions all across the Precinct and used by patrolling troops of all sides in the conflict as well as by researchers. But the biggest beneficiaries of the SEORC Geo Shelters were the normal people who had lost everything in a war that was seemingly ever lasting. Anywhere you travel in space you will see these structures in all their variety.

We would like to thank everyone who took us up on the Early Supporter Offers over the last two weeks on these great new models. All orders are in the mail as of now. One of the greatest thrills of the promo period was Sam Croes (designer of the Geo Shelters, Hab Dome and Corbal Depoloyable Hardpoint) writing an article on painting up the Geo Shelters for the Red Planet for Mars. You can read it HERE and its really good.
We are now at the two thirds point of our birthday month and its a great month for us and for all of you from the look of it too. Thanks for all your emails of encouragement and asking just what is next. No clues from me but lets just say next week will have to revving your Adder engines and then in September we are getting our wheels on. The ESO is over and a small mountain of Geo Shelters is now on its way around the world and the Corbal offer is at an end too. I have been pleasantly surprised at the uptake on the Corbal kit but it does seem to have struck a note with those look for something a little more space opera than usual. We are getting nice feedback on the current free miniature IMP12 Starvaulter Instructor which has a week or so left before being take off free in all orders status. There is also just over a week left on our birthday freebie offer of roughly ten percent of product value in our choice of miniatures and terrain being put in your order. Lastly we had a nice surprise when the good lady of one of our customers put up her pyrographic picture of the cover of Patrol Angis burned into a wooden dice box! See that on our blog. Finally remember that by placing an order with us you sign up for an account and earn points on all purchases which can be used later for discounts, special items and more.
