Welcome to Terra Nova and Heavy Gear Blitz with the Half-size 3rd Edition Rulebook; a tabletop miniatures wargame with over 20 years of heritage and success, now in a handy and portable half-size rulebook. This half-size book contains all the content of the full sized 3rd Edition rulebook in full colour.
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 when Norther, 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 their 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 warn-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 b enough this time? Or will Earth grind another planet under their iron heel?
The War for Terra Nova has only just begun… Gear Up and join the battle!
