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!

Robert Dubois (President Dream Pod 9)

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      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?
