HGB Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopia Kickstarter Updates, Fans Start a Heavy Gear Blitz Discord Server, and DP9 Extended Holiday Season Sale Just 5 Days Left!
We just posted Kickstarter Updates today for Peace River & NuCoal and for Utopia. Last week, we picked up the rest of the Mold 1 plastic miniature sprues (Warrior, Warrior IV, Chasseur, & Cuirassier) production last week at Plasti-World Products. And we’ve been busy packing up Peace River and NuCoal armies at the office. I took a few photos of what the DP9 Office looks like stuffed with boxes of plastic sprues right now to share with you all. We still have a lot of Peace River and NuCoal Armies to get packed. Also last Friday we gave the OK to the start of the Utopia Mold production run. The mold now has special side brackets added to it, to make the production run smoother. And yesterday I stop by to check on production and pickup the first boxes of Utopia plastic miniature sprues and took a few photos during my visit to share with you all. You can checkout all the photos below including photos of the Plasti-World office and production area and boxes the different sprues are sorted into.
Fans have started a Discord server (Discord App) for Heavy Gear Blitz, where you can get together, talk, and discuss HGB. I’ve joined as rdubois and will be checking in on it from time to time. Here is a link to the new discord server if you want to join as well.

We have decided to extend the entry deadline by 1 week for the Golden Gear 2019 Painting Competition to Midnight EST on Saturday December 7th, 2019. To give painters a bit more time and we need few more Pimp My Gear and Duelist entries to round out those categories. We posted all the entries received to the DP9 Forum thread this morning and have attached the latest of them with this post for everyone to checkout. If you have time please take a few photos of your painted up HGB/HGA minis and email your entries to Robert Dubois at email@example.com this…
Just before Christmas on December 24th the plastics manufacturer here in Montreal (Plasti-World Products) did testing of Mold 1. I went over to check the test pops, approve the production run, and took some photos to share with you all. Mold 1 includes the Warrior & Warrior IV for Peace River and Chasseur & Cuirassier for NuCoal. I also picked up the boxes of Mold 2 production run plastic sprues and took them to the Dream Pod 9 office, photo below. Then I made the first Peace River and NuCoal Armies of with the Mold 1 test pops and Mold 2 production run, plus plastic bases and took photos. Plasti-World Products should get the Mold 1 production run finished in the next week or two, then we’ll be able to start packing up Peace River and NuCoal armies.
Mold 3 production with the Utopia sprues is delayed while a special side bracket is added to it, to make the production run smoother. The Mold 3 will go back into production after the Mold 1 production run is finished. We now hope to have all the boxes of plastic sprues in Mid-January.
