Utopia Armed Forces Kickstarter is Now Live!


We just launched our Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter at 7:02 pm EST today (January 17th, 2018). The Kickstarter campaigns initial goal is to raise $30,000 CAD (about 23K USD) needed to make the plastic injection mold for the new plastic miniatures and backer rewards. The campaign will run for 17 days ending on Saturday evening at 7:02 pm EST (February 3rd, 2018).

We have a great Captain Reward Level at $70 CAD (about $53.85 USD) that includes a Utopia Patch and 3 squads (Strike, Recce, and Support) with a total of 18 plastic miniatures. Stretch Goals, once unlocked, will increase the total to 36 plastic miniatures. Plus higher reward levels add the new MAR-DK drone (resin model) and the large Gilgamesh Command Tank (resin model); see below for artwork and details. Treat yourself to a New Army for the New Year, by clicking on the image or this link!

Two additional Kickstarters to make plastic miniatures for the Peace River and NuCoal core models will follow. Backers that support two or more of the individual Kickstarters will be able to have them shipped together for the basic fixed shipping cost.  

Happy New Year 2018!


The Staff at Dream Pod 9 wishes everyone a Happy New Year! We hope you all have a great 2018 and will join us for our upcoming Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia, Peace River, NuCoal, and Jovian Wars Venus Kickstarters.

Larger Images of the Utopia 3d Models and Utopia Army Construction Video added to the Kickstarter!

The Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter is off to a good start with 35% pledged of its initial $30K CAD ($23K USD) goal in the first two days. We still need a lot more backers (276 at our $70 CAD Captain Reward Level) to make it a success. If you can help please support the Kickstarter, every pledge gets us closer to the goal. We also have a $10 CAD ($7.69 USD) pledge Cadet Reward Level that gives you a backer thank you reward of a Utopia Patch with worldwide mailing included. Here is a link to the Utopia Kickstarter for all those interested in picking up a new army for the new year or throwing a little support our way.

We just added our second update to the Kickstarter with larger images of the Commando, Recce, & Support Armigers and N-KIDUs 3d models. Our first update, last night, added larger images of the resin Gilgamesh Command Tank and resin MAR-DK Drone 3d models. Plus some photos of the original Utopia pewter painted minis with some FX added to them, checkout all the images attached.

Also with todays update we posted a Utopia Army Construction video. Its just a simple video made by Robert using his iPhone handheld without any editing. The video is a bit shaky at spots, being handheld, but it gets across the basics of Heavy Gear Blitz Army (Force) Construction. Using the 18 miniatures (Armigers & N-KIDU Drones) from the Utopia Captain Reward Level and a few pages printed out from our free to download HGB Living Rulebook ebook. Minis shown in the video are the original Utopia pewter minis all painted up on one of our small convention demo tabletops. It also references the Gear Grinder website with January 2018 update used to make fast datacard sheets for the two combat groups using the 18 minis and print them out for game play. Plus options for extra combats groups for the Gilgamesh or Alpha Squad with MAR-DK drone as support unit. Here is a link to the video on YouTube to check.
