Utopia forces were not my favorite. I would have pledged for the full set because, well, figmentus.  Of the 3 sets coming out, the only one that really interests me is peace river and the really sweet price point that was there on the first set doesn't seem like it will be there on this series

 

That said, the plastic minis from the first kickstarter were excellent.  Crisp detail, great parts managment, good range of posing possibilities, and a great selection of weapons that all fit well on the mini.  I have all 4 armies from the first KS and limited opportunity to play or I probably would join for more than base support level.

We just posted our latest HGB Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter Update that we wanted to share with everyone. We made some new videos today and uploaded them to YouTube. These are just simple videos made by Robert using his iPhone handheld without any editing. The first is a quick Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame introduction video with whats needed to play, the tabletop battlefield, and basic dice rolling mechanics. Second is a Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame Initiative and Commanders video. And third is a Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame Action Phase (Movement and Firing) video.

Click the links to the YouTube videos below the video description texts, sorry if the videos are bit shaky at points.

Its now a week since we launched the Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter to fund the expensive plastic injection mold needed. So far $14,488 CAD has been pledged or 48% of our initial $30K CAD (23K USD) funding goal. There is now just under 10 days left in the campaign, which ends on Saturday February 3rd 2018 at 7:02 PM EST. Dream Pod 9 really needs this Kickstarter to fund successfully so that the subsequent Peace River and NuCoal Plastic Miniature Kickstarters can go ahead at the end of February and March as planned.

 

To hopefully entice more Backers and to thank and reward those already supporting the Utopia Kickstarter we have decided to add 9 more plastic miniatures to the Captain and Above Reward Level packages. This brings the Captain and Above Reward Level packages to 27 plastic Utopia miniatures when the Kickstarter hits its initial funding goal. We are also keeping Stretch Goals 1 to 6 that can add an additional 9 plastic miniatures when they are all unlocked, bringing the total up to 36 minis. Previously announced Stretch Goals 7 to 12 have been removed and their potential 9 additional minis are what we used to add to the Captain and Above Reward Level packages announced in this update.

 

The Captain Reward Level at $70 CAD ($53.85 USD) is an even better Backer thank you reward package now with 27 plastic miniatures (about $2.60 CAD or $2 USD per mini). Attached (below) are the updated Captain Reward Level and Hero of Utopia Reward Level graphics, that are now on the main campaign page. The original 18 plastic miniatures made 3 Combat Groups with primary units of strike, recce (recon), and support (fire support). The 9 additional plastic miniatures will make will make 3 support units of strike, recce (recon), and support (fire support) that can be placed with their matching primary units or with another to give your Combat Group different attack options.

 

Thank you all for your amazing support, please continue to share these updates with friends and the online community. We'll keep working hard to make the Kickstarter a success and any help you can give us getting the word out to potential backers is very appreciated. We are working on some more Heavy Gear Blitz Rules and Game Play videos that will be posted in upcoming updates. Visit the Utopia Kickstarter page at the link below and show your support of Heavy Gear Blitz with a pledge.

Utopia Kickstarter Update & Utopia Force Special Rules Video!

Now just 6 days left in the Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter with $19,286 CAD Pledged (64%) of our $30K CAD Initial Funding Goal. We'll keep working hard at getting news out about the Kickstarter to have a strong last week and a successful campaign with everyone's help. The Utopia Kickstarter ends on Saturday evening February 3rd at 7:02 pm EST. Here is a link to the Kickstarter page to go check it out and show your support. 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heavygearblitz/heavy-gear-blitz-utopia-armed-forces-plastic-minia 

For this update we made a short video (click the link below) focusing on the Utopia Special Rules when making a Generic Utopia Force (Army). Sorry if the video is a bit shaky at spots it was made with a handheld iPhone in one take and no editing. Also a quick errata the HGB Living Rulebook page mentioned at the end of the video is wrong, it should be page 204. I'm going to have to learn how to do some video editing in the future, as it took about 10 tries to get that best take that was uploaded to the YouTube channel. 
 

HeavyGearBlitzUtopiaForceSpecialRulesVid 

Attached are the 3 pages that we created for the video explaining the Utopia Force Special Rules and the page 204 from the HGB Living Rulebook. The page includes other Utopia Force Sub-Lists like the UCFT - Utopian Combined Forces Troupe with its Well Supported special rule: Each Primary Unit in this Force may have two Support units. And Allies special rule: Choose one CEF, Black Talons, Caprice, or Eden Support units from the chosen Faction Force list to attach to Utopian Primary units. And 3 more Sub-Lists each specialized for Commando, Recce, or Support Armigers. You can download the HGB Living Rulebook ebook at the link below.

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
