We are now in the final 3 days of the Heavy Gear Blitz – War for Terra Nova Kickstarter, which ends this Saturday afternoon, November 22nd at 2:04 PM EST.

 

We want to thank all our Backers, old and new, for their support. We started the project with a modest goal of $27,000 CAD to pay for the very expensive molds need to make a Basic Starter Set of 16 plastic miniatures. Now 27 days into the project we have unlocked 14 main stretch goals and numerous mini-stretch goals and are at over $112,000 CAD Pledged.

 

We now have an amazing Backer Reward Core Starter Set which includes 47 plastic miniatures, color quick start rulebook, backer patch, plus a lot of free downloads. The true retail value of all the individual miniatures included in the Core Starter Set is over $300. You get it all for a Pledge of $115 CAD (about $100 USD) plus shipping of $15 for US and Canadian Backers and actual shipping cost for International Backers. That`s a cost of less than $2.50 per miniature compared to our pewter miniatures cost of $8 or more each.

 

If your brand new please start by viewing our main War for Terra Nova Kickstarter page and scrolling down, we have images there of what's included in the Core Starter Set, the stretch goals, add-ons available, and images with links to our pledge calculator, free download Beta Rules ebook and our facebook page. Plus way down on the page there are info graphics for the four factions included in our Core Starter Set and our shipping FAQ.

 

Here is a link to our latest update, for new Backers, we gathered all the important updates since the Kickstarter launched, to get you up to speed fast.

 

Below is an image of the Core Starter Set showing all the 47 miniatures included, to see what an amazing deal it is. Please share it with friends and support our project, all help is very appreciated.

 

Thank You All!

Yeah, I'm sad about it, but I'm going to have to pass on this one.  I actually came into some extra money this month, enough that I can buy the new PC I've been wanting the past year, so I'm gonna buy that instead. 

 

I'm glad your KS is doing so well though. It means I don't have to feel guilty about not helping you reach your initial goal. :poke:

Ooh, this one is tough...I don't see myself playing the game, but some of the parts (legs especially) could make for some sweet CAV conversions.

 

Bahh, join in. We're finding folks all over. ;) Everyone loves a good Gear.

Every little bit helps, but hey, priorities are important, so no worries. Hope you'll join us over in the DP9 forums, or, if ya'll have Facebook, the Terra Nova DMZ Fan group is available for everyone who loves the Heavy Gear Universe. :)

And broke 2 stretch goals yesterday.  So it's up to 50 models for the $115 CAD pledge.  Only about 29 hours to go.  Still plenty more goodies to unlock!

 

11 hours now, and we've broken $135,000. Just unlocked some Demolition Drones. :) Rhoomba of doom!

But the CAV are giant robots, these are human sized robot suits. Totally different.

 

Ehhhh... The Flail Squads are "human sized robot suits" but the Gears are oversized mecha.  Not as big as CAV or BattleTech mecha, perhaps, but much larger than human sized.  From the rulebook:

 

"A Gear stands two to four times times the height of an adult human. The pilot sits in the chest of the vehicle with their head often

extending up into the sensor head turret of the Gear."

 

So, that would be, what, around 12-24 feet tall?  Definitely sounds like big stompy robots!  ::D:

Thank you everyone for making our first Kickstarter an amazing success. We raised over $150,000 CAD in Pledges from over 1000 Backers to get molds made for new plastic miniatures.

We will be doing an update on the Kickstarter page at least once a week for our Backers, from now on. Early next week we'll make the Pledge Manager active and import the Backer information supplied by Kickstarter. Once that's done we'll send out a few test invites to make sure everything works right and then you will get an email invite to setup your account. The Pledge Manager is where you will decide on the composition of your rewards and pledge for additional add-ons.

We will announce plans for the still locked Kickstarter models in a future update.

Thanks Again!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.
