We returned to Canada on Monday afternoon from the Cold Wars 2020 gaming convention down in Lancaster, PA, USA. We had a great time at the convention and ran lots of Heavy Gear Blitz demo games using the new 3rd edition rules. A big thank you to Joe Johnson and John Tinney for helping out running games and to all those who joined us at Cold Wars.

We packed up the first Canadian, US, and International Backer reward packages this last weekend and shipped them this week. Rewards shipping order is based on the order of Backer pledges during the Utopia Kickstarter and include their Utopia and Peace River & NuCoal Kickstarter rewards and add-ons. Backer packages with Hero level rewards and add-ons of the New Edition HGB Rulebook, which is still in layout, will only ship once the book is finished and back from the printer. Until then we’ll continue shipping the reward packages we can each week, following the order listed above.

We got some of the older HGB Infantry from various factions (previously mounted on hex bases) cast-up and glued on the newer round 40 mm squad bases to show in the New 3rd Edition Living Rulebook. Then gave them to Phil to painted up and add sand (flocking) to the base and paint it. Here are the infantry squads he painted in January, which we took photos of, then close-cut and updated their various squad pack blister sheets (shown below). They include the Southern Lizard Riders, Southern Bikes with Sidecars, Southern Bikes, Northern ATVs, CEF Grels (2 Squads + 1 Team), CEF Grels on Hoverbikes, Black Talon, Caprice, NuCoal Sandriders, and the Peace River (2 Squads + 1 Team). Plus we had Phil paint up the Xmas 2013 exclusive Command Jager and Gen Con 2014 exclusive Headhunter minis, which we sell at conventions DP9 attends and during our Summer and Xmas Sales on the DP9 Online Store, Enjoy!
