Heavy Gear – War for Terra Nova Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter – Updated

We are now in the final 2 days of the Heavy Gear Blitz – War for Terra Nova Kickstarter, which ends this Saturday afternoon, November 22nd at 2:04 PM EST.


We want to thank all our Backers, old and new, for their support. We started the project with a modest goal of $27,000 CAD to pay for the very expensive molds needed to make a Basic Starter Set of 16 plastic miniatures. Now 27 days into the project we have unlocked 14 main stretch goals and numerous mini-stretch goals and are at over $112,000 CAD Pledged.

We now have an amazing Backer Reward Core Starter Set which includes 47 plastic miniatures, color quick start rulebook, backer patch, plus a lot of free downloads. The true retail value of all the individual miniatures included in the Core Starter Set is over $300. You get it all for a Pledge of $115 CAD (about $100 USD) plus shipping of $15 for US and Canadian Backers and actual shipping cost for International Backers. That`s a cost of less than $2.50 per miniature compared to our pewter miniatures cost of $8 or more each.

Heavy Gear Blitz
War for Terra Nova – Starter Set
Kickstarter is Now Live

The War for Terra Nova – Starter Set – Kickstarter is to fund molds for plastic miniatures. These high quality multi-part plastic miniatures for our tabletop wargame will form the new two player Basic Starter Set of 16 miniatures – with 4 different models at the start.

We don’t want to stop there, a Core Starter Set is also available, with stretch goals that will unlock new models and add more plastic miniatures to the Core Starter Set. Our desired goal is a Core Starter Set of 46 miniatures and color quick start rulebook, which will be accomplished by reaching the 13th stretch goal of $105K CAD. This would allow for a variety of eighteen different models from 4 factions in a Core Starter Set for two players, with a multiplayer option of up to four players.

In this Box Breaking Matt Takes a look at PRDF Amy Task Force from DP 9 it includes GP Squad, Strike Squad, Fire Supprt, Patrol Squad, and Infantry.

I spoke with Robert Dubois about the current contents of the Army Task Force deal and how it might change with the beta rules, here is what he had to say.


“The Task Force Deals that we sell now don’t include the rules (either the old field manual or new beta rules) they are only miniatures. But the Task Force Deal has an option to purchase a copy of the rules at a special price the new Beta Rules small b&w format book costs only $11.99 or the old Field Manual small format book costs only $7.99 when purchased as an add-on to the Task Force, here is a link to the PRDF Task Force on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store.

There are also so other specially priced add-on orders customers can add to the Task Force like Striders, Decals and Dice. I expect the 4 main factions (North, South, PRDF and NuCoal) task forces to stay the same for a while.”

We are planning to make some small 4 miniature squad packs (Fire Support, Strike and Recon) in the future, like we did for the 4 main faction GP Squads just before Gen Con, as the Beta Rules allows for 4 Gear Squads.
