Dream Pod 9 lets us know what’s up with their upcoming Heavy Gear Blitz Kickstarter and answers some questions about it with this new post.



From the post:

After reading everyone’s comments and feedback about our earlier idea of doing a Kickstarter this fall for the new edition Heavy Gear Blitz! Tabletop Wargaming Core Rules we have decided to change gear. Instead of a book, the Kickstarter, this October, will be for a new Core Starter Box with plastic miniatures and Quick Start Rules to get new players and old into the game and learning the new rules.

    Eh, why bother? Love the models but they can’t get through all their army books before they’ll jump ship to another edition that completely invalidates the old books. At least 40k edition changes the codex is still good.

    DP9 is about halfway done with a new rule set. The Beta version is and you can download it for free.

    WTH are they kickstarting a new Starter Set BEFORE the new rules are finished? What rules will be in the new kickstarter? Old edition? Beta edition? Some half-made rules between the two with a note directing the players to the website for the latest edition of rules?

    This makes no sense at all. Finish the rules, THEN put out a starter set.

    This is some baffling behaviour for sure – without a clear idea of what is being ‘started, what is the point? Press? PR? Exposure? shouldn’t they have a bright, gleaming target to promote?

    I feel like the best summation of DP9s recent efforts is simply “doing it wrong”. I wonder if they’ll be a going concern in another few years.

    At least I have all my HG minis and the 2nd Ed rules if I want to muck about with something stable.
