Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Warrior IV Model

The Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter to make plastic miniatures for the Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopia faction core models is now set for a mid-September launch. We had hoped to be ready for a July launch, but our 3d modelers are still working on the models for the NuCoal and Utopia. Plus with Gen Con in August and all the work that entails, we think its best to wait until after its out of the way.

Wargaming 2.0

I've been a war gamer since it was synonymous with role playing games and there almost no division between game types as there is now. Then there was a great revolution where plastic models became available that were designed as playing pieces and not just for modeling. There were companies who had been casting figures in metal for years, mostly historical figures. Almost within a decade the landscape had changed and suddenly dozens of companies were publishing games of all types. 

The table top gaming industry is going through a number of revolutions right now that are a natural extension of those early days. The first is price point. The days of mass battle games being the standard are largely gone, replaced with skirmish games. Portability and price point are large selling features, almost as important as a compelling backstory. More than ever today collaboration is the key. Collaboration in the gaming industry used to mean one or two game designers working together with a particular sculptor. Now with the internet the meaning and scope of collaboration has changed and it changes everything.

 

Building towards the future for Heavy Gear

Now that the first Jovian Wars Kick Starter is over the development work turns back to Heavy Gear Blitz!

 

Going forward this will be the pattern where we here in Dream pod 9 work on the prep for kick starters, work on the kick starter and then work on fulfilling the kickstarter while preparing for the next kickstarter. The next kick starter for Dream Pod 9 will be the next three factions for Heavy Gear Blitz.
