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!

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.

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:

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!

Those MHT-95s are giving off a Renegade Legion vibe for me but I'll have to resist since the CAV KS filled my "stompy robots that I don't know if I'll ever get to actually play games with" quota and then some.

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:

At the last minute I failed my will save. The minis look too good and the company should be reliable. Add to that they could also be incorporated into other BSR games and you have an irresistible combo

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!

Heavy Gears are big stompy robots. They're just one-man infantry fighting vehicles or one-man tanks, instead of towering monstrosities that crush all skyscrapers.

 

Which makes them that much more fun to me.

 

Here's a good video that can show you how big they are:

Roughly 12-15 feet tall.

      A small STL KS for 10 CA$. The first stretch goal has already been unlocked. It's a bit over the place (cheesecake, dwarves, grungs), but the models look nice and the price is good.

      150 miniatures and counting! $109 base pledge.
      By the Sadler Brothers (Descent, Gears of War, Mansions of Madness). "Roll to resolve" dice mechanic with some HeroQuest nostalgia. Playthrough videos explain the rules well.

      "Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), introduced in Street Masters and Brook City, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, threat decks, villain decks, and quest decks can all be mixed and matched along with altar cards, feature cards, and other game elements to create countless combinations of unique adventures. With an engaging one-off experience and narrative campaign play, Altar Quest offers players endless adventure in a unique fantasy setting with years of support planned for the game.
