Welcome to Terra Nova and Heavy Gear Blitz!

A tabletop miniatures wargame with over 20 years of heritage and success.

The colony world of Terra Nova continues to be in a state of constant conflict. Massive polar nations, invaders from Earth and even armed gangs have turned its arid landscape into a never-ending battlefield. Old grudges and fragile alliances set the stage for complete chaos while the Northern, Southern, Peace River and NuCoal Factions fight countless wars in the name of power, profit, revenge or mere survival.

Having failed to conquer Terra Nova once before, Earth has added her subjugated colony worlds to a new Colonial Expedition Force (CEF) invasion force of GRELS, FLAILs, and Hovertanks. Ships blacken the sky, unleashing unending waves of would-be conquerors onto Terra Nova’s war-torn surface. Even Utopia’s newest technological marvels of war have joined the CEF to claim a piece of the planet. Will the factions of Terra Nova unite as they did in the first invasion? Will that be enough this time? Or will Earth grind another planet under her iron heel?

The War for Terra Nova has only just begun... Gear Up and join the battle!

With the Heavy Gear Blitz 3rd Edition Rules you can:

  • Enjoy a fast paced, alternating activation game that leaves no player waiting as every action can be reacted to. Choose to play a casual skirmish game with as little as four models or an intense competitive game with 20 or more models.
  • Build a force from 10 different Factions and 36 Sub-Factions drawn from multiple worlds of the Heavy Gear Universe.
  • Use a “combined arms” approach to future warfare that includes Gears, Striders, Combat Mounts, Hovertanks, Tanks, Infantry, VTOLs, and Aircraft.
  • Select from a diverse array of weapons, electronic warfare tools, and many other options to destroy your opponent.
  • Wage war using a highly flexible system with customization options for commanders, forces, or even individual models as veterans and duelists.

3rd Edition Rules also includes introduction to the Heavy Gear Universe, objective generation, weapons recognition, reference sheets, and game tokens sheet. Plus model lists for the new plastic miniatures included in the Northern, Southern, Peace River, NuCoal, CEF, Caprice, & Utopia Army Boxes.

A second free ebook, entitled the Heavy Gear Blitz! Force Compendium is also available. It will include the complete North, South, Peace River, NuCoal, Black Talon, Leagueless, CEF, Caprice, Eden, and Utopia model lists.

Plus we've included pdfs of the tokens sheet, force record sheet, Terra Nova maps, badlands buildings and stoneheads terrain flat sheets. And our collection of Heavy Gear Blitz paper terrain that you can print on cardboard/cover stock, then cut-out and glue together for some quick tabletop terrain.

Will there be a PoD on here so we don't need to ship dead trees across the Atlantic?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
