Heavy Gear: Dreadnoughts - Plastic Miniatures Wargame

About this project

 

Heavy Gear: Dreadnoughts is an exciting new tabletop miniatures wargame simulating fleet-level battles in the far future. Control armadas of landships, massive hovering fortresses bristling with weapons & troops. To achieve victory, you must wisely manage your army to not only deliver punishing bombardments, but also to launch air missions, command ground forces, and provide repair and recovery resources to damaged units.

It's Pod 9 who owns the IP for HeavyGear Blitz, and would have to renew the license. 

And they still haven't updated their website. 

(you can still read "Additionally, the paint set or individual paints from the set can be ordered directly from Reaper Miniatures" - with the Reaper name a link to Reaper's online store - in their description of the HGB Paint set. )

That's correct, Gadgetman. Dream Pod 9 runs the Heavy Gear Blitz license. I'm Brandon Fero, collaborator, writer, proofer, and tester for Heavy Gear Dreadnoughts, and also the mouthpiece, so to speak, for the game. I'm also writing with Arkrite Press LLC in regards to the RPG SDX ruleset.

 

I've been discussing with DP9 staff about renewing the license with Reaper for the paints, after grabbing the last bottles of metallics from the line off Ebay.

 

Hopefully, over the next few days, in between all the rushing around to share and answer questions, I can get back in touch with DP9 with some paint sets that are more affordable than the current box. That would be a boon, I think.

 

In regards to the pictures:

Fusion Core Studios has already popped some prototypes of the Susano-O, and the Khagan, and compared them to their constituent 1/2400-scale naval models.

 

Some pics follow.

These are just prototypes at this time.

 

For more information about the game, I also updated with some of the updates from the Kickstarter here on my blog, directly from Fusion Core's updates, regarding how the game will shape up.

 

That link is here: http://heavygearthunderrun.blogspot.com/2016/11/what-is-heavy-gear-dreadnoughts-about.html

 

If anyone has any other questions that I can answer, I'll be more than happy to.

 

Thank you.

Project cancelled. Briefly read the update, but didn't quite see what happened. Looks like they will make some demo rules, and put more emphasis on troops rather than ships. Should it go that way in the next incarnation, I won't back. I was in it for the big ships.

      Got another interesting (IMO) Kickstarter starting later today.
      They've been putting out a lot of freaky artwork, not sure how much is going to be translated in to minis yet though.
       
      And live:- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/footsore-miniatures/coven-a-28mm-dark-fantasy-skirmish-game/description
       
      I'm in for a set of witches.
      I'd like the book too, for the artwork, but I can't justify spending that much on something I'd look through once.

      $70 for 100+ miniatures, plus a free Terrax. Some overlap with Bones KS sculpts.
       
      Company is based in Spain, and, while this is their first plastic injection molding KS, they've been producing resin miniatures in previous KS.
       
      Myself, I've backed Bones I-IV, and double-pledged for Black List Game's Fantasy I and II, so am on the fence. And have a lot of mold lines to scrape.

      This Kickstarter just launched for double-sided magnetic dungeon tiles. Similar to Ettinstone tiles, and aside from appearing to be a bit thinner, I can’t see why these wouldn’t work with Ettinstone tiles (I certainly plan to use them that way).

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...

      Story
        Fallen Knight is a classic cooperative dungeon-crawler set in an outlandish dark fantasy world. Players take on the role of death knights, lost warriors who devour the memories of the dead for their silent gods. Once consumed, these long-forgotten memories can be used to unlock powerful, forsaken abilities. Alongside their mechanical advantages, these memories will be showcased in a beautifully realized artistic comic, revealing new insights into these dark lands..  Through a combination of its foreboding themes, exciting game mechanics, and unique artistic vision, Fallen Knight occupies an innovative space within the board game hobby, and we're so excited for you to be a part of it!
       

       

        Story The Fallen Knights were created by the Gods with the sole purpose of acquiring and reliving lost memories, to better satiate the Gods' voyeuristic appetites. Like dogs on a leash, the Knights were bound by oath to track and consume specific memories, as demanded by their greedy masters. These lost memories -- once consumed -- would offer the Knights a rare, tender glimpse of life. Yet it was fleeting; when returned, they were reduced once more to lifeless husks by their hideous lords. And so it continued for an age, in an endless cycle of servitude, lifelessness and hate....
      Now, the Gods are gone. The curse is broken, and the Knights are free to live and relive any memories they encounter. But like bad dreams, these memories are vague and fractured. And so it's time to leave the realm of the Gods, for Fallen Knights must forge their own path, or be lost forever alongside the memories they covet.
        Corpses As you travel the world, you will absorb the memories of corpses - both found and defeated - in order to enhance your characters, freely developing them as you wish.
      You will spend 'life' to reanimate 'unsouled' Fallen Knights, mastering their bodies and upgrading their potential effect on the game.
        Damned sword The Fallen Knight's 'Damned Sword' can naturally morph into new weapons; you'll be able to access the martial abilities of any character class, as long as you've consumed the right memories!
        Gameplay Fallen knight is a 1-4 player cooperative dungeon crawler board game. The gameplay consists of strategic, visceral combat, embedded within a campaign-driven framework. Though consumed memories, players will unlock the abilities of dead adventurers, which they can then use in combat. Each ability is represented by a unique ability card, composed of an individual action, a character class and weapon type.                 
      Synergies are special active or passive skills that Fallen Knights will receive if they have multiple abilities of the same class or weapon type. With hundreds of ability cards and over 20 unique synergies, Fallen Knight provides a dynamic and exciting space for character creation, customization and optimization!
      Instead of dice, Fallen Knight utilizes a sub-action deck. With over 20 sub-action cards, players can flexibly tailor their strategy to best deal with their immediate foes!
      Monsters are controlled by a combination of Monster Action cards and Monster Behavior cards. Monster actions - unique to each creature in Fallen Knight - will dictate its actions during boss battle combat. Monster behaviors - drawn from a deck shared by all monsters in the game - will modify the monster's actions by adjusting damage range or type, changing targets, or activating a myriad of special abilities.
