Heavy Gear 20th Anniversary


The 1st Edition Heavy Gear Roleplaying & Tactical System Rulebook was released 20 years ago this summer at Gen Con 1995.

 

Over the years we have released over 75 books and hundreds of miniatures for the game. The universe we created has been turned into a 40 episode TV series by Sony and 2 computer games by Activision.  A new computer game entitled, Heavy Gear Assault, is in development by Stompybot Productions.  And a new edition of the RPG is in the works by Arkrite Press. We launched a successful Kickstarter in late 2014 to make plastic miniatures for Heavy Gear, which weíll be shipping out Backer Rewards later this year. Plus the Heavy Gear Blitz - Living Rulebook Beta with the all the new edition rules is now available as a free Ebook download for everyone to checkout. 

 

We are running a special 20th Anniversary promotion on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store until the end August 2015. All orders of $100 USD or more will automatically receive a free Chibi Jager resin miniature (limit 1 free per customer). Extra Chibi Jagers and the Xmas 2014 Chibi Hunter are available for $19.99 USD each.

War for Terra Nova - Kickstarter


The Heavy Gear Blitz - War for Terra Nova - Plastic Miniatures Core Starter Set Kickstarter was successfully funded. We raised just over $150K CAD to produce molds needed to make plastic miniatures for our Heavy Gear Blitz Tabletop Wargame.

We will be doing some additional crowd funding to try and unlock a few more model molds for stretch goals not reached during the Kickstarter. We have opened the Pledge Manager up to accept new backers for our Core Starter Set (51 plastic miniatures, backer patch and color quick start rulebook) at $115 CAD plus $15 shipping for US and Canadian backers and exact shipping for International backers, which is differed until later in 2015 we know the exact shipping weight.
