Heavy Gear Blitz Kickstarter Launching November 2017


Plans are to launch our second Kickstarter for Heavy Gear Blitz, in November 2017. The goal of the Kickstarter will be to make plastic miniatures for the core Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopian faction models. We are still working some of the 3d models and have been previewing them on our Dream Pod 9 Facebook page to get feedback from our fans. Once everything is ready to go, tentatively in mid to late November, we'll launch the Kickstarter.  

Merry Xmas & Happy New Year

United Mercantile Federation Army


People think we're a bunch of used Gear salesmen who'd sell our mothers for a handful of marks. We're not. We're dedictaed to protecting our families, our League, and we just understand that an interest in the economy contributes to that.

-Lt. Giardo Gladston, UMFA PR Officer

Peace River


They wouldn't let me join the army the first time I tried. I called a recruiter the day after Peace River was bombed, but they "weren't accepting applications due to current events." The current events being our home being blown up! I ended up joining up with the rescue and cleanup teams and spent three cycles in the worker barracks they threw up in warehouses. Finally they let me join the military, but I know I'd really been signed up since the day the CEF set off that bomb.
-PFC Wickman Mars, P.R.D.F.

Black Talon


I was privileged to see the Black Talons in action in an operation near Gardena in Spring TN 1950. I wish I could say more, but the details are considered secret. Nonetheless, their performance was exemplary.
-Humanist Alliance Protection Force Penkosarch Alven Frust
 
Been there, done that. I've blown up CEF on Terra Nova, ready to try it on Caprice!
-Unnamed Black Talon pilot

NuCoal


We're Terra Novans, the same as anyone in Marabou, Fort Henry, Olduvai, or Port Oasis. We're standing up for the Badlanders that get walked over whenever the North decides to invade the south or vice versa. The CEF's back: We've got Port Arthur on our side and we're not going to let them walk over us.
-Zed Echert, Ninevah Resident

Caprice: Daggers of Deception


Fight the power! The CEF and the corps are working hand-in-hand to sell us out. Me and my buddies know the real score, and we're fighting everyone who wants to take away our freedom.
-Unnamed Liberati foot soldier arrested after guerilla action on Caprice. Escaped captivity

The Forces of Utopia


[REPORT] Exploring Terra Nova/Badlands/Region 51230.23: Region classified as 'desert' with 48% lower radiation level than equivalent Utopia regions. Signs of life minor. 
[ALERT] Radar detected unrecognized object approaching at 31 KPH. Object identified as possible human on quadruped organic life form. No match in current threat database. Observing.
-Log file from Utopian Drone found destroyed by Sandriders outside the Godswell Valley.

Northern Guard


When you join the Northern Guard, you are supposed to go beyond your allegiance to any League. You're taking up the duty of protecting the entire Confederated Northern City States and it's interests in the badlands.
-Excerpt from North Guard Recruitment Pamphlet

Western Frontier Protectorate


My uncle was on the Relentless when it made it's final stand against the CEF. He died with honor. I enlisted to honor his sacrifice.
-Ensign Benitez Rikard

The Eastern Sun Emirates


Everyone has a master. That's just life in the Eastern Sun Emirates. It's probably the same everywhere. If you're a commoner like me, finding an Emir that values a steady hand with a rifle, or a gentle touch on a Heavy Gear's control yoke, is the best way to get out of the farms and factories and into someplace where you can have a little power, even if it's only at your master's sufferance. I try to stay out of the politic unless the boss tells me to, though. 
- Sergeant Marcello Goris

The Humanist Alliance


The Humanist Alliance is mankind's greatest social engineering attempt. We've fought and struggled to create a society where everyone knows their role. As part of this, we've all but eliminated poverty, discrimination, and countless other diseases of society. If only we didn't have to deal with the toxic influences from our neighboring, less perfect, Leagues...
- Protector Kavin Mestaine, Hetaroi Commander

The MILICIA


Unlike some of these reprobates, I joined the MILICIA willingly. Well, almost willingly. These troops are my children, though, and it's my job to get them home safe.
-MILICIA Lieutenant Garr Selvin

The NorLight Armed Forces


I come from the land of the prophet. I fight for all the people of Terra Nova and the colonies. The prophet is my guide and I will enact his will.
-Mohir Rega, Dorothean Warrior Monk, upon enlisting in the NorLight Armed Forces
