Heavy Gear Blitz - War for Terra Nova - Kickstarter is Now Live!


The Heavy Gear Blitz - War for Terra Nova - Starter Set Kickstarter is to fund molds for plastic miniatures. These high quality multi-part miniatures for our tabletop wargame will form the new two player Basic Starter Set of 16 miniatures - with 4 different models at the start.

We don't want to stop there, a Core Starter Set is also available, with stretch goals that will unlock new models and add move plastic miniatures to the Core Starter Set. Our desired goal is a Core Starter Set of 46 miniatures and color quick start rulebook, which will be accomplished by reaching the 13th stretch goal of $105K CAD. This would allow for a variety of eighteen different models from 4 factions in a Core Starter Set for two players, with a multiplayer option of up to four players. We need your support to make it happen. Click here to go to the Kickstarter.
