The Pod Chatter 12/19/12 – 12/25/12

 

It has been a long 2012, during this year we saw the newest faction, NuCoal, come to life in the Heavy Gear Blitz Universe with fantastic new miniatures and a new way of building armies. With the excitement of NuCoal still in the air a year later, we sit on the verge of the next big release, the Sourthern Field Guide: Forged in Fire. Not only is the South getting a revamped army list, but they are also getting some new miniatures to add to your Southern collection. If you are as big as a Heavy Gear fan as I am, then you have no doubt pre-ordered one of the Southern Super Bundles for yourself or you are waiting for the Holiday money to start rolling in from friends and family. Perhaps you are a shopping procrastinator (like me) and have yet to purchase your fellow gamer anything, or yourself for that matter.

Well, below I present to you my 2012 Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide For the Heavy Gear Fan (or LMHGGFGHF for short).

Delay in Forged in Fire Delivery Date

 

To our loyal customers and fans,

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the hard copy of Forged in Fire has been delayed and we will be unable to deliver it before Christmas. The book will ship out automatically when it has returned from the printers.

Every effort is currently being made to get the e-book version of Forged in Fire to everyone who is entitled to it before the 24th of December.

Holiday Season Update!

 

The Holidays Season are in full swing and we are celebrating by bringing back our Task Force Deals and Armour Deals for the North, PRDF, and CEF factions!

On top of this, we are offering Free Shipping for all orders over $50.00 to the USA and Canada. Plus our International Customers will enjoy reduced shipping rates for the holidays.

New Hybrid Resin & Pewter Miniatures

Dream Pod 9 has started to convert some of our Heavy Gear Blitz Resin Miniature blisters into Hybrid Resin and Pewter kits. The larger parts will remain in our high quality resin and the small parts such as weapons, antenna, etc. with be switched over to pewter metal. The main reason for the new Hybrid kits is that small metal parts like antennas and guns will be less likely to snap off if a miniature is dropped. The first of these new Hybrid kits is the Hussar Walker for the NuCoal faction, you check out the Hybrid Parts photo below. Other miniatures that have been converted include the Fusilier Hovertank, Voltigeur Main Battletank, HT-68 Hovertank, HT-72 Hovertank, Mammoth Strider, and Naga Strider.

We will be updating the parts photos on the DP9 Online Store in the coming week and as other miniatures are converted.

Triple Threat: the New Bear/Den Mother/Mad Dog R Kit

Here's a sneak peak at components inside the Bear/Den Mother/Mad Dog R Two Pack [DP9-9126]. This is a new kit layout for Dream Pod 9 designed to provide access to three different models based on older chassis in a combined kit. The WFPA and Leagueless both make use of the outdated but still useful Mad Dog R and Bear Chassis (with the Den Mother command variant) and this kit allows for two models to be built.
