Two additional Kickstarters to make plastic miniatures for the Peace River and NuCoal core models will follow. Backers that support two or more of the individual Kickstarters will be able to have them shipped together for the basic fixed shipping cost.  

Happy New Year 2018!

HGB Living Rulebook January 2018 Update Roll Back

We are rolling back our Heavy Gear Blitz Living Rulebook January 2018 Update to the previous Ver. 2.0 of the rules, after listening to player feedback. The printed HGB Quick Start Rulebook is also Ver. 2.0 of the rules, so it remains unchanged.

We made a new pdf with Changes Log and Utopia Section Ver. 2.1 for the HGB Living Rulebook as a small February 2018 Update, a direct link to download the pdf is below. The Utopia Section has all the changes from the log entered and includes the new MAR-DK and Gilgamesh model list stats and the new variants for existing models. Plus we included the updated Uhlan Strider and Black Wind VTOL for the Peace River model list stats in the Changes Log, as they will be part of the next Kickstarter, launching in Mid-March 2018.
