Return to Terra Nova with Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz
DP9Logo Heavy Gear Logo

Alliance is proud to announce that it has come to an agreement with Dream Pod 9 to reintroduce their flagship miniatures game, Heavy Gear Blitz, to the US retail market.

ArtThe Hallmarks of Heavy Gear Blitz (HBG) are anime-style giant robot miniatures, with a fast-paced tactical, objective-based game play. The main Locked & Loaded Rulebook provides a solid army construction system that allows players to field combined-arms forces, featuring Infantry, Tanks, Striders, and anthropomorphic combat robots called Gears, all the tools necessary to master the 62nd century battlefield. In addition, our new Field Manual (Core Rulebook Companion) takes the game to the next level, with rules updates and easy-to-reference rules flowcharts.

For beginning players, a low-cost Two Player Starter Kit provides an excellent choice to learn the rules as well as providing both players a starting point for building either a Northern or Southern Faction Army. Players can easily complete the sub-squads from the Starter Kit with the purchase of a Hunter or Jager Two Pack blister, which includes two Gear miniatures and optional weapons. New players can also opt to jump into the game with one of three Starter Army Boxes for either the Northern, Southern, or Peace River Factions. Each Starter Army set contains two full combat groups of miniatures along with extra weapon options. Both the Starter Kit and the Army Boxes include small b&w versions of the HGB Locked & Loaded and Field Manual books, four D6 dice, and a measuring tape.

Alliance will be phasing in the line over the next few months, making this an excellent opportunity for retailers who want to test the product out. Watch Game Trade Magazine for the item-by-item lists by month!

Come join us on the sun-scorched world of Terra Nova, the Home of Humanities hardiest pioneers, and Gear Up for fast-paced Mecha Battles, because this ain’t your Father’s Giant Robot Game!


Welcome to the 62nd century and the world of Terra Nova. Colonized by humans, left to fend for itself, and divided between two rival superpowers, recent events have brought this formerly united planet once more to the brink of war. The harsh battlefields of Terra Nova are home to a new type of fighting machine: the 15-foot-tall war walkers called Heavy Gears. Filling a role between tanks and infantry, it has radically altered the face of warfare. The battle for Terra Nova has begun. Will you fight for honor, for pride, or for the land to call your own?

Heavy Gear Blitz: Locked & Loaded features revised, streamlined miniature wargaming rules, plus an introduction to the world of Terra Nova, comprehensive Field Guides for the Northern Guard, Southern MILICIA, Peace River Defense Force, and Port Arthur Korps, a scenario generator, 90+ datacards, and more!
