We now have new 3D printed Aller Main Battle Tanks for the Northern faction of Heavy Gear Blitz in stock. Available in standard, Naval Support and Hardy varieties. There's also the new Verder, a Self Propelled Gun based on the Aller chassis.
The latest new releases from Dream Pod 9 for Heavy Gear Blitz are here. The Rock Beetle Helicopter is the latest transport for the Northern faction. It can be deployed as an unarmed medical transport or an armed version with Medium Machineguns and Light Rocket Pods. However, both can transport a couple of infantry squads, providing an exciting alternative to the venerable Badger APC.
We also have two new packs of Caprice Mount Legs to expand the forces of Caprice players. One is for mounts that use Small Legs – the Bashan and Aphek models.
The other is for the larger mounts that use Armoured Legs – the Ammon, Kadesh and Meggido mounts. These legs allow Caprice Army Box owners to use all their extra mount bodies, giving them additional complete models.
The second wave of miniatures for The Witcher tabletop roleplaying game have reached the UK. The new sets include six new models based on the character classes of the game - Men-at-Arms, Mages, Doctors, Priests and Criminals - including two dwarf and two elf models. These are ideal not just for the excellent Witcher RPG but for any late-medieval fantasy game.
The monsters in this wave include spectral Barghests and nine vicious little Nekkers, desperate to eat whatever or whoever they can get their claws into.
There's plenty more on the way too with Witchers, Merchants, Bards, Werewolves, Sword Wraiths and even a Wyvern coming soon.
Shiny Games are excited to have brought The Witcher Miniatures line to the United Kingdom. This first wave represents just the beginning of the minis based on the extremely popular video games (and the books before them).
The primary use of these miniatures is for excellent The Witcher Pen & Paper RPG by R Talsorian Games. However, Monster Fight Club have indicated that they will be creating a The Witcher miniatures game in the not too distant future. This is similar to what they've done for R Talsorian's biggest game, the Cyberpunk RPG, which is getting a Combat Zone skirmish game in the new year.
Whether you want to play tabletop games as Geralt and friends or your own player character, these miniatures provide a beautiful means to do so.
The Force Compendium is the companion volume to the Heavy Gear Blitz 3rd Edition Rulebook. This 276-page softback book contains plenty of additional options to expand the game and keep players engrossed with new possibilities.
While the main rulebook focuses on the plastic Army Boxes and the units they contain, the Force Compendium includes all the military units and weapons currently used on Terra Nova. This includes a wide variety of new unit types; infantry, tanks, aircraft, artillery and the fearsome Striders! While Heavy Gears are the heart of Blitz, the game excels as a combined arms experience. Players can continue to play with a force comprised entirely of Heavy Gears, but adding different types of unit will reward them with new opportunities.
As well as vastly expanding the existing factions with new units, this book also includes three new forces to command. These include the Black Talons, Terra Nova’s elite combined special forces. With the best weapons and pilots from across the whole planet , can players use the peerless pilots of the Talons to good effect against superior numbers?
This book also introduces Leagueless forces, those who swear no allegiance to the great powers of Terra Nova. Nevertheless, they are fierce defenders of their homes and families. Using a wide range of equipment that can make them unpredictable enemies, this force will give players more choice of units than any other.
Along with the new units and factions, the book contains additional background lore, fiction and supporting material to make this the most immersive Heavy Gear Blitz experience ever!
The Force Compendium is available from our Shiny Games webstore. Alternatively, to purchase from your Local Games Store, direct them to shinygamesdistribution.com, where we also supply retailers.
