Dream Pod 9 needs your support and pledges to make this project possible. Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 CAD to cover the manufacturing cost of the initial mold and to give Backers some nice plastic miniatures for the game. The next major stretch goal is $50K CAD for a second mold that will include Fire Support and Recon models. And at $75K CAD a third mold with two more models and Stoneheads Badlands Terrain.

For our Peace River fans we have a Peace River Army Commander Level for a pledge of $70 CAD that includes 1 Peace River Patch and starts with 8 plastic minis (4 Warrior and 4 Warrior IV) to make a starter army of General Purpose and Strike Squads.

Ooooh, purdies and.. Whatever  the other guys are.  Badlands Commander is tempting, as I'd be able to add on some of the North and South armies too...

There first kickstarter was a deal dreams were made of but I don't think they made a dime on it.  This one has a bit more realistic costs.  I probably wouldn't bother (still have 2 of the first factions unbuilt)  but peace river is the faction I actually play.

 

The product from the last kickstarter was very late because they had a lot of details and learning to do, but the minis came out truly spectacular, as in I've only had to clean up one or two mold lines in 60 figures and I'm still not sure if they were intentional.  As they learned a lot i would also expect delivery time to be a lot shorter.  

 

Oh, and these Don t require you to pin them together to prevent them from exploding like a frag grenade when they hit the cement or tile floor ::D:

 

 

Overall, good company, great product so far, I will be backing for both fractions.

Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter Final Week Update!

Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter is now into its final week, ending Saturday Evening May 26th, 2018. After reaching our initial funding goal of $25,000 CAD, early in the campaign, to make a first plastic injection mold and give Backers some nice plastic miniatures for the game. We've unlocked the first 4 stretch goals with over $36,000 CAD pledged. We have looked at whats reasonable to expect in the final week of the Kickstarter and updated our stretch goals and plans accordingly. The campaign page text, reward levels graphics, stretch goal graphic, some add-ons graphics, and pledge calculator excel sheet link have all been updated.

The next major goal is Stretch Goal 09 at $50K CAD pledged for a second plastic injection mold that will include core Fire Support and Recon models for Peace River and NuCoal. Dream Pod 9 is committed to reaching this goal and unlocking the second mold and making the Backer Reward Packages some really amazing deals. If needed we will run an extra funding campaign after the Kickstarter ends using our pledge manager website to reach the $50K CAD goal.

We have updated Stretch Goal 09 to give Backers an amazing reward. At $50K CAD pledged we`ll be adding 3 Crusader IV (FS support unit) and 3 Skirmisher (RC support unit) plastic miniatures to the Peace River Army Commander, Badlands Commander and their Hero of version Reward Level packages. Plus we`ll be adding 3 Chevalier (FS support unit) and 3 Jerboa (RC support unit) plastic miniatures to the NuCoal Army Commander, Badlands Commander and their Hero of version Reward Level packages. With this a Peace River or NuCoal Army Commander reward level will each include 18 plastic miniatures for $70 CAD pledged ($3.89 per mini). And the Badlands Commander reward level will include 36 plastic miniatures for $100 CAD pledged ($2.78 per mini). Plus we have made available all 4 of plastic miniatures as Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge right now for Backers that want to pickup extras, and make full Fire Support or Recon squads (combat groups) instead of support units for the GP and Strike squads.

FinalWeekHGBPeaceRiverandNuCoalKickstart

We had planned for a 3rd plastic injection mold at $75K CAD pledged that would have included the Peace River Argos, NuCoal Arbalestier, and Stoneheads badlands terrain as plastic miniatures. But for the Final Week we have pulled back on that plan and are now offering the Argos and Arbalestier as pewter miniatures in the Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge of $22 CAD each. Plus added our previously available resin terrain packs of Four Stoneheads in Sand ($22 CAD) and Four Stoneheads ($28 CAD) to the Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge for Backers that want to add some gaming terrain.

Thank You to all our Backers for your amazing support so far, we`ll be working hard to get the word out to more potential Backers this final week. We think the updated reward packages at $50K CAD pledged are amazing deals and should help convince a few more to show their support and click the Kickstarter Link below.

Another Successful Kickstarter, Thank You All!

 

PeaceRiverandNuCoalKickstarterThankYouAl

 

Thank you to all our amazing backers for your support of the Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter. Your pledges raised $40,912 CAD, which gives us our initial funding goal of $25K for the first plastic injection mold and unlocked the first 6 Stretch Goals.

 

Kickstarter will process all the pledges over the next 2 weeks and we'll work on the Pledge Manager website to have it ready to send out invites to Backers soon after that. About a week after we email out invites to the Pledge Manager we plan to open it to outside Backers and start our extra funding campaign to get Stretch Goal 09 unlocked at $50K CAD and fund the second plastic injection mold. We'll make updates when the invites go out and when the Pledge Manager is opened to outside Backers.
