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.

Well, we're just passed 58 percent funded, and steadily moving onwards.

 

Here's a preview of one of the later Stretch Goals, the Borasco carrier.

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.

      Hello all - Chroniclers of Barbaric Splendor is now live. It features licensed miniatures from creators of swords and sorcery such as David C. Smith (Oron, Red Sonja, Bran Mak Morn) and Howie Bentley (The Snake-Man's Bane).

      It is perfectly reasonable that this will come up, so I wanted to post this here as well:
       
      It is no secret my first campaign was delayed, although fulfilled. Part of that was poor planning and expectations, and part was health issues that exacerbated each other and financial issues that arose from that. All such issues are in the past, and I am proud that I overcame them to fulfill what I feel was an amazing Kickstarter with amazing miniatures. Since then I have been operating Barbaric Splendor Miniatures and have been delivering excellent service and product. I have learned also from others in the industry and feel confident I am offering a well-thought out campaign that will be a success for all of us! 5 of the miniatures have already been sculpted, and sculptors lined up for the rest, including add-ons and stretch goals. Dark Platypus studio will be doing the casting - from previous experience I can attest to both the quality and timeliness of their work. Thus, the only risks would be possible delays in sculptor schedules for stretch goals and the fact that I will be doing all the packing and shipping myself when not working my regular job could lead to slower times getting things out if the campaign is wildly successful. I understand that some will be displeased with the delays of the first campaign, but I feel I have proven myself over the past year with Barbaric Splendor Miniatures, and I look forward to bringing more great Swords and Sorcery miniatures to you!

      You spoke and we listened ...
      Thank you for checking out our project. After our first successful project we are back with the same great detailed miniatures but in the 28mm scale many of you wanted.
      Made from injection moulded PVC we were incredibly happy with the quality of our previous models, the factory we worked with were very efficient allowing us to start to fulfil our Kickstarter a full two months early.
      We worked hard to have our sculpts in place meaning as soon as we are successful we can spring into action and instruct the factory to start the process. 
      Core Box Alpha containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Core Box Beta containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Pledge for both to make a saving. Both Core Boxes containing 4 large Animals (2inch base) and 12 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Containing various animals and companions these 2 core sets are everything you loved in the first but with a 28mm scale. 
        At a staggering 7" tall and 10" long the mighty Tarrasaque attacks... Think yourself lucky, he was originally intended to be 14" in height!

      I'm not associated with these guys, but they make some pretty good MDF terrain, and are branching out into minis

      About
      Mirrors of Tullarn is a new range of 28mm miniatures from Knights of Dice, set in a distinctive fantasy setting and cast in glorious metal!
      These characterful figures have been sculpted by Anton Ducrot (from Flytrap Factory) for tabletop miniature wargames and would look amazing in any fantasy setting, whether that is your Dungeons & Dragons or other roleplaying campaigns or as weary adventurers in your Frostgrave warbands or other tabletop games.
      We are using this campaign to fund the production molds and the initial release of 28 figures from four factions, the Anram, Tarusa, Lahari and Saresh, in glorious white-metal!  Hopefully (with your help!) we can also release a host additional figures in the form of freebies, add-ons and awesome stretch goals!
      A small band of Lahari faces of against some Saresh warriors All the miniatures have been sculpted and master molds created, we simply need the funds to make the production molds to put these figures into full production.
      With your help, we can bring these figures to market and hopefully get a good headstart on expanding the range quickly.
      The Anram defend their mountain hide-away from a marauding band of Tarusa raiders There are 8 simple pledge levels to choose from, we’ve broken them into easy to understand groups. Simply pick a pledge level, (each one represents a group of figures from the different factions), you'll then receive any FREE STRETCH GOALS unlocked during the campaign ... the more stretch goals that are unlocked, the more figures you get for free!
      A group of hired knights accompanied by their paymaster The Wanderer - no rewards, select this pledge to simply show your support!  Thank you!
      The Nomad - back the project at this level and you'll receive the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch', and gain access to the Add-ons and Stretch Goals to add more when they are unlocked. This pledge does not qualify for any free add-ons.
      Anram Nobility - receive the 7 Anram figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Tarusa Chieftain - receive the 7 Tarusa figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!

      *25mm Round slotted base included with every miniature. 
      The masters of time, the Anram live high on the highest peaks across Tullarn Savage mountain clansmen, bent on domination and oppression! Masters of the oceans, rivers and trade the Lahari wear the finest silks and flaunt oppulent treasures Saresh tend to the fertile valleys and vast farmlands of Tullarn A true Warlord knows how to bring people together, and then pitch them at each others throat!

      Here is a Bones inspired kickstarter that I think my fellow painters will appreciate, a travel and display case for your mini.
