On this Remembrance Day here in Canada and the British Commonwealth or Veterans Day in the United States we want to thank and remember all the brave men and women who have helped keep us all safe and free through the years. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month, we take 2 minutes of silence to remember.

Phil finished painting up the NuCoal plastic miniatures this week. He did an amazing paint job, with the NuCoal factions dark blue and grey color scheme and then adding decals to finish them up. We took photos this week of the 18 painted plastic minis together and in groups of the 6 Chasseur, 6 Cuirassier, 3 Chevalier, and 3 Jerboa Gears, check them out below. Plus photos of the sample NuCoal Force possible thanks to the our Kickstarter Backers. The Force image below includes the painted up plastic minis, a Hussar Strider in tank mode, a Hussar Strider in walker mode, and 2 of the new Arbalestier Gears in the back.

Heavy Gear Blitz 3.0 Rulebook Beta – Final Draft Files!

We’ve now locked-down the new edition HGB 3.0 Rules as Beta final draft, so that we can proceed with layout of the Heavy Gear Blitz 3.0 Quick Start Rulebook (ebook and full color printed book versions). The larger Heavy Gear Blitz 3.0 Living Rulebook ebook with all the factions and their model lists added to the QSR layout will be done after that.

Dream Pod 9 wants to thank The Rooster for all the work he’s done over the last year and all our players, fans, and DP9 forum members that have helped with their comments, ideas, and feedback during the development of the new rules edition, its very appreciated.

Below is a link to the DP9 Forum thread with the final HGB 3.0 Beta draft files (word and excel) for everyone to download and checkout. Once the layout of the HGB 3.0 Quick Start Rulebook is finished we’ll upload the ebook version for review and feedback, before its sent off to the printers.
