Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter Successfully Funded!


Our Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter launched on January 17th, 2018, concluded successfully at 7:02 pm EST Saturday, February 3rd, 2018.

We had a great Captain Reward Level at a pledge of $70 CAD (about $53.85 USD) that included a Utopia Patch and 6 squads (2x Strike, 2x Recce, and 2x Support) with a total of 36 plastic miniatures (Updated 1/31/18). Plus higher reward levels add the new MAR-DK drone (resin model) and the large Gilgamesh Command Tank (resin model); see below for artwork and details. You can checkout the Kickstarter page at the following link!

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!

Feedback Friday on Saturday: HGB Week 3 & JW Week 2!

Didn't have time to get the new polls and post made on Friday, so here is Feedback Friday on Saturday, sorry for the delay.

For last weeks Heavy Gear Blitz Feedback Friday polls we had 19 players vote. Which is pretty low, we really need more players voting to have the best sampling result possible. Of those who voted we had 100% vote that some of the Heavy Gear Blitz rules are not clear and need rewriting and/or examples. And 58% said we should include a quick explanation on the page, the first time a new rule is referenced in the book, instead of the refer to Section X.XX, as it is now. For our biggest poll question last week on if Dream Pod 9 should look at breaking the rules into three levels (basic, intermediate, and advanced) in the future. 26% responded that they would like the three rules levels, 53% responded that they would like just two level (basic and advanced), and 21% voting that they like the rules as they are.

So the majority, of our small sampling, would like to see clearer rules and basic rules that everyone uses to play and that don't overload new players. And have the more advanced rules (Electronic Warfare, Stealth, and others to be determined) in their own section of the rulebook that players can choose to use, if they all agree.

This feedback leads us to several new polls this week to know what rules that players think should become part of a future advanced rules section of the book. Or if we should try to make a simpler version of some advanced rules and have them in the basic rules and have the full rule in the advanced rules section.
