We are still working on laying out the new Heavy Gear Blitz 3rd Edition Rulebook, while packing up the new Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopia plastic miniature armies, along with our regular DP9 Online Store orders. Today we reveal the cover artwork for the HGB 3rd Edition Rules and give you all a bit of info on the steps of how it was made. We decided to rework the big War for Terra Nova battle artwork by artist Lorenz Hideyoshi Ruwwe that was used for the 2nd Edition. Moving the elements around in Photoshop to make space and add Peace River,…

We got some of the older HGB Infantry from various factions (previously mounted on hex bases) cast-up and glued on the newer round 40 mm squad bases to show in the New 3rd Edition Living Rulebook. Then gave them to Phil to painted up and add sand (flocking) to the base and paint it. Here are the infantry squads he painted in January, which we took photos of, then close-cut and updated their various squad pack blister sheets (shown below). They include the Southern Lizard Riders, Southern Bikes with Sidecars, Southern Bikes, Northern ATVs, CEF Grels (2 Squads + 1 Team), CEF Grels on Hoverbikes, Black Talon, Caprice, NuCoal Sandriders, and the Peace River (2 Squads + 1 Team). Plus we had Phil paint up the Xmas 2013 exclusive Command Jager and Gen Con 2014 exclusive Headhunter minis, which we sell at conventions DP9 attends and during our Summer and Xmas Sales on the DP9 Online Store, Enjoy!

Just before Christmas on December 24th the plastics manufacturer here in Montreal (Plasti-World Products) did testing of Mold 1. I went over to check the test pops, approve the production run, and took some photos to share with you all. Mold 1 includes the Warrior & Warrior IV for Peace River and Chasseur & Cuirassier for NuCoal. I also picked up the boxes of Mold 2 production run plastic sprues and took them to the Dream Pod 9 office, photo below. Then I made the first Peace River and NuCoal Armies of with the Mold 1 test pops and Mold 2 production run, plus plastic bases and took photos. Plasti-World Products should get the Mold 1 production run finished in the next week or two, then we’ll be able to start packing up Peace River and NuCoal armies.

Mold 3 production with the Utopia sprues is delayed while a special side bracket is added to it, to make the production run smoother. The Mold 3 will go back into production after the Mold 1 production run is finished. We now hope to have all the boxes of plastic sprues in Mid-January.
