"Let me tell you a story kid, a story that happened so many cycles ago there's only a few of us left that even remember". "There was a bar, even after the war broke out, it remained neutral. Both sides would set aside their differences just to knock back a few." "Met a few 'Cons there ... could have called them friends if we weren't at war" "I remember one Autobot, he and I ... we would often drink together. We could have been best friends if it wasn't for the war". "But this - Read More

Ever since Ryan flicked the switch on Heavy Metal War game, the HMW forums have been graced with many creative players. Some kitbashed, some photoshopped, some simply wrote fics while others drew renditions of their characters. But they all brought their HMW characters to life in some form. Jason Tyler is a relatively new player to the game but he's kept on with the HMW creative tradition. Drawing inspiration from the hugely popular Mosaics and HMW mission logs, Jason has created a - Read More

Our good friend Jim Sorenson has just dropped us a line to let us know about the latest post he's made on his Disciples of Boltax blog. This time around, he treats us to some backgrounds from "Roll for it." Diehard G1 fans will most likely remember that this was a first season Sunbow cartoon episode. In fact, it was only the 5th ever Transformers show aired and just the 2nd after the initial mini-series. We have excerpted part of the sketch, but to see the rest of the image along with a - Read More

As most of you know, Moggy has decided he wants something a bit more colourful than the 1982 ZX-Spectrum graphics we have currently, so we've decided to up the ante on the altmodes making them larger and more detailed (this 2009 after all!) Whats more, we've also decided to add robot modes, weapons and armourinto the mix as well. So, to put it simply: If there is an alt, robot mode, weapon or eve a piece of armour you want in the game, please make an icon for it using the instructions below - Read More

I want to apologize but there will be no monthly Transtopia art challenge this month, as someone needs the help of the superhuman life-forms that call themselves artists. Yes Seibertron.com's site game Heavy Metal War (HMW) is prepping for the conversion to 2.0! Question: Now of what concern would that be for an artist? Answer: The game needs a map! So instead of Transtopia's monthly art challenge for October, I present you with the Transtopia "Give HMW a map of Cybertron" art - Read More

We've known that this has been coming for years.

Then, a month ago, this was released: The first teaser for HMW2. The first peek into a whole new world and whet the appetite for what was to come. Now, thanks to Omega Sentinel, we can get our - Read More

Hey guys, OS has made some alterations to the Heavy Metal War missions! As well as modifying the mission brackets to account for our new level 4's over the next few days, we've tweaked a few of the mission genration rules in the hope that they work a bit better for you all from now on. 1) ALL Predacon and Maximal mission weightings have set to the lowest amount so they should now ONLY triggered by a Max/Pred being active. 2) Likewise, Bot v Con and Pred v Max mission weightings have - Read More
