Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter is Now Live!


We just launched our Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter at 7:02 pm EST today (January 17th, 2018). The Kickstarter campaigns initial goal is to raise $30,000 CAD (about 23K USD) needed to make the plastic injection mold for the new plastic miniatures and backer rewards. The campaign will run for 17 days ending on Saturday evening at 7:02 pm EST (February 3rd, 2018).

We have a great Captain Reward Level at $70 CAD (about $53.85 USD) that includes a Utopia Patch and 3 squads (Strike, Recce, and Support) with a total of 18 plastic miniatures. Stretch Goals, once unlocked, will increase the total to 36 plastic miniatures. 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. Treat yourself to a New Army for the New Year, by clicking on the image or this 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!


The Staff at Dream Pod 9 wishes everyone a Happy New Year! We hope you all have a great 2018 and will join us for our upcoming Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia, Peace River, NuCoal, and Jovian Wars Venus Kickstarters.

April 26th Single Packs and Featured Product

This week we have two new single pack releases! 

For the South, this week we are releasing the Razor Fang Black Mamba. The Northern forces are not ignored, as the Thunder Jaguar is available as well. Both are great variants for commanders with upgraded communications and satellite uplinks.

April 19th Single Pack Scouts

We have three single packs for release this week that should be appreciated by scout Gear pilots from the North and South. These are available immediately for order from the Dream Pod 9 Online Store.

The Northern forces receive the Cheetah and Weasel while the Southern Iguana is now available.

The Hammers of the North

 

 

As Dream Pod 9's Art Director, one of the real pleasures of producing the new series of Field Guides for the factions of the Heavy Gear Universe is revisiting some canonical designs and attempting to further enrich them. Part of this is seeing whether the faction logo or emblem can simply be nuanced, modernized, or whether it can be detailed in a way that touches on some of the faction characteristics in more detail.

Consolidated Rules Resources

We’ve taken all of the current errata posted across our Gear UP e-zines and books, and consolidated them into a single file for easy access. In addition to the errata file which also includes the Post 1940 Upgrades for the North and Peace River, we have also made available the Duelist Rules from Perfect Storm and the Veteran Survivor & League Rules from Terra Nova Gambit as a free download for our fans. Lastly, the Beta Threat Values published in Gear UP 5 are included here for ease of access. Don’t forget that you can download the Heavy Gear Blitz Core Rules Field Manual for free on Drive Thru RPG. Enjoy! 

Single Pack Releases for April 12th, 2013

We've got more single packs available this week! 

This week's releases are the Peace River Pit Bull, a light Gear used for patrols and police work, and the elites of the Northern and Southern alliances, the Jaguar and Black Mamba. all are currently DP9 Online Store Exclusives and are available now. 

Minor Map Issue

The maps on the Retailer and Events pages are currently unavailable. I hope to fix this soon.
