Dream Pod 9 have taken to Kickstarter with an awesome project to bring out the plastic miniatures starter set for Heavy Gear Blitz called War for Terra Nova. It’s been up for a little while now and smashed it’s total…
We’ll kick things off with what you’re currently getting in the boxed set which includes the miniatures and a whole load of downloads to get you started with the rules. As it stands there are a bunch of stretch goal add-ons as well which look a little something like this.
You’ll want to click on these (open in a new tab if that helps too!) to take a closer look as there are some rather nice goodies for you to get as the campaign rolls on. With there still being twenty four days left on the campaign there’s plenty of time for a lot more to be unlocked.
If you’d like to know more about the world of Heavy Gear then you can check out this handy little summary they developed for the game too. Heavy Gear hasn’t been a game that I’m overly familiar with but I have seen some of the cartoons surrounding the universe and it’s certainly a rich one to draw from.
As you can see the miniatures are looking pretty stunning and the paint jobs help too. Certainly brings the world to life and we all do love a good mech I reckon. As mentioned above the key to the campaign is getting the funding to make the plastic moulds and to not only bring to life the core set but also a lot more miniatures if they get the right support. It certainly is a joy to hear the word plastic when it comes to big models like mechs. They can be over so fiddly otherwise!
If you’re interested in checking out the rules for the game a little earlier before you dive in and start pledging then they have made them available, for free, through DriveThru RPG right HERE.
