Heavy Gear Blitz! Plastic Peace River, NuCoal & Utopia Minis

Recommended Posts

About

The Heavy Gear Blitz! Plastic Peace River, NuCoal & Utopia Miniatures Kickstarter is to fund the molds for three new armies of high quality multi-part plastic miniatures for Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz! - Tabletop Wargame. Our initial goal is to raise $50,000 needed to make two plastic injection molds for the 8 core models of the Peace River and NuCoal faction Armies. Mini Stretch Goals after that will add extra parts to the sprues like running legs, extra arms, and extra weapons. Larger Main Stretch Goals will make more plastic injections molds possible and Unlock the core Utopia Army models and additional models for all three factions.  

We believe that being an early supporter should be encouraged so we are setting our reward levels so that the early Heavy Gear Commander Level Backers will get their rewards shipped out in the first wave. Sign up early to lock in your shipping order and watch as stretch goals bolster your forces! We also have some Faction Army Set Pledge Levels for Backers just wanting miniatures from one of the factions. All models from the Heavy Gear Commander Set and unlocked models will also be available at a special price for this Kickstarter to all backers as add-ons rewards for an extra pledge.

Plus we have a Retailer Pledge Level, to encourage Retailers to help in funding the project and reward them with the Kickstarter Sets. The final mass market retailer army boxes will be announced later, once we know how many molds and models are unlocked as part of the Kickstarter.

Please Note all prices in this Kickstarter are in Canadian Dollars ($CAD) as we are based in Canada, at launch $1 CAD was worth about $0.77 USD with a 1.30 exchange rate. So the Heavy Gear Commander Reward Level of $130 CAD is about $100 USD.

Here is a link to our Pledge Calculator excel file with all the Reward Levels and all the Add-Ons available that you can download and use to easily calculate your pledge to enter in the Kickstarter. We'll be updating it during the Kickstarter as Stretch Goals are unlocked.

Dream Pod 9 just launched our second Kickstarter for Heavy Gear Blitz to make plastic miniatures for the core Peace River, NuCoal & Utopia faction models for our Heavy Gear Blitz! - Tabletop Wargame. Our initial goal is to raise $50,000 needed to make two plastic injection molds for the 8 core models of the Peace River and NuCoal faction Armies. Mini Stretch Goals after that will add extra parts to the sprues like running legs, extra arms, and extra weapons. Larger Main Stretch Goals will make more plastic injections molds possible and Unlock the core Utopia Army models and additional models for all three factions.

We believe that being an early supporter should be encouraged so we are setting our reward levels so that the early Heavy Gear Commander Level Backers, which is a great package for two players starting out in the game, will get their rewards shipped out in the first wave. Sign up early to lock in your shipping order and watch as stretch goals bolster your forces! We also have some Faction Army Set Pledge Levels for Backers just wanting miniatures from one of the factions. All models from the Heavy Gear Commander Set and unlocked models will also be available at a special price for this Kickstarter to all backers as add-ons rewards for an extra pledge.

Here is a link to go check it out and show your support.

Looks like they are starting small again.  If KS1 was any indication there will be plenty of stretch goals.  I received everything from KS1 with no errors.

 

I did laugh a little at the dudes bringing a knife to a mech fight.  I'll probably leave that part out.

The stated scales for CAV and Heavy Gear Blitz are close, however they are a bit different technology wise so the vehicles are different sizes.  An average sized gear is a bit smaller than an average CAV (other than the behemoth ones), however tanks in Heavy Gear seem to be larger.  Gears have hands that hold weapons, and sometimes treads/wheels/etc on their feet to assist movement.

 

Here's the official answer from the kickstarter faq:

Quote

Heavy Gear Blitz miniatures are 1/144 scale (12mm), our pewter infantry figures are around 12mm tall. Gears, Striders, Tanks, and other vehicles are all to scale, with Gears ranging from 28mm to 48mm tall.

      Some neat looking alien terrain.  I like the idea of curved walls as it should make handling miniatures easier.  Looks like this creator has delivered a resin project before (a dice tower).
       
      *edit* Not sure why images aren't working, I'll try again later.
       
      Also some cool stuff in the stretch goals.

      This is a pre-launch thread, but should be launching on Kickstarter in April.
       
       
      Darkholds is a dungeon crawler boardgame - think Space Hulk crossed with Zombicide - containing lots of undead (including Wihtgar, Wihtboga, Wihtax, Gasts, Dreaguth and Tomb Spider) and six heroes, all in plastic. It's heroes versus the game.
      The heroes are Carrowek, Penda, Nerys, Gnith and Sáthach, plus a special KS only miniature that you can ONLY get if you purchase the boardgame, Morag of Mann. You can't get her separately and she will only be available during the Kickstarter. The retail version won't include her.
       

      I don't know why it keeps merging into a single post.  But hopefully it stays.

      The Weitz Method, created by Andrew Weitz, a Juilliard-educated professional musician, is based on a revolutionary method of music notation called Weitz Notation that allows students to play piano in minutes. Once a student learns the basics of The Weitz Method, they will have the ability to play any song in Weitz Notation. Andrew Weitz wants to bring The Weitz Method to people all over the world via downloadable video lessons.
       
      Why 'The Weitz Method'
      'The Weitz Method' works by breaking down each song into simple notation using familiar shapes. No need to spend hours learning how to read music! 'The Weitz Method' gives you the freedom to learn the songs you choose immediately. Say goodbye to the typical beginner tunes and hello to your favorite pop melody. With the funds to purchase song rights, 'The Weitz Notation Library' has the potential to grow exponentially.  
      Let's face it: you're busy! With responsibilities, friends and family, your time is at a premium. You deserve the freedom to pursue your passion for music at your own pace. That's why 'The Weitz Method' will consist of a downloadable material that's always ready when you are.
