Tabletop Crowdfunding Round-Up: December 12th

Mechanized combat, naval warfare, and football- Come check out this week’s batch of tabletop Kickstarter highlights!


Heavy Gear Blitz! Expansion by Dream Pod 9

Dream Pod 9 successfully crowdfunded a new line of plastic kits for their long-running Heavy Gear Blitz! miniatures game a few years back. Now, they’d like to expand their plastics range with new miniatures for Peace River, NuCoal, and Utopia. Their goal is to fund the production of plastic kits for some of the core units for these three factions, with more being added via stretch goals. The pledges are arranged into army boxes for your faction of choice, and contain enough models to jump into the game right away. The basic army boxes will cost you $CA 70/$55 and generally contain 12 Gears, the titular mechs of the game’s setting. If you’re curious to know more about Heavy Gear Blitz!, the rules are available for free online.


Nemo’s War by Victory Point Games

This campaign is designed to fund a new print run of the Second Edition of Victory Point’s popular Nemo’s War solitaire board game. Inspired by the Jules Verne classic, Nemo’s War places you in control of the Nautilus and her crew. Customize your experience by choosing one of four Motives that alter your objective and three difficulty settings. Explore the ocean depths, uncover ancient treasures, upgrade the Nautilus, and combat enemy vessels and savage sea creatures. Be careful to maintain your crew’s physical and mental health, and avoid becoming too infamous or you risk making enemies out of the most powerful navies in the world. Existing owners can grab a mini expansion that adds 12 new upgrade cards for $5, while new players can get the full game and expansion for $59.

    I’m liking the rat tards. They’re a lot more upright in their pose than we’re use to seeing em. And it’s pretty cool. Shows off their six packs… lol
