War for Terra Nova - Kickstarter


The Heavy Gear Blitz - War for Terra Nova - Plastic Miniatures Core Starter Set Kickstarter was successfully funded. We raised just over $150K CAD to produce molds needed to make plastic miniatures for our Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame.

We will be doing some additional crowd funding to try and unlock a few more model molds for stretch goals not reached during the Kickstarter. We have opened the Pledge Manager up to accept new backers for our Core Starter Set (51 plastic miniatures, backer patch and color quick start rulebook) at $115 CAD plus $15 shipping for US and Canadian backers and exact shipping for International backers, which is differed until later in 2015 we know the exact shipping weight. If you missed out on the Kickstarter, here is your chance to help out and get an amazing Core Starter Set and additional add-on rewards.
