Heavy Gear Blitz – Basilisk unit addon

When Heavy Gear Blitz moved to its latest incarnation – the Living Rule Book – certain models and variants that had existed in previous versions were left out. Several of these are older (in the fiction) Southern gears. The models for these gears are still available and still pretty dang cool, so I’m interested in adding them back into the game.

Thankfully this is quite easy to do because:

A) I have the rules/stats for the models in the previous edition of game

B) The Living Rule Book version of HGB is actually a system which is very easy to add to and work out a sensible TV cost for the model.

First amongst these is the Basilisk. I present it here in the format of the LRB so others can use it in their games.


Code Name: Basilisk
Manufacturer: Territorial Arms
Unit Type: Light Trooper
Height: 4.2 meters
Weight: 5,210 kg
The Basilisk was introduced to fill the need for a light trooper gear in the Southern military. The Basilisk was commonly modified to serve as a recon gear rather than use the unreliable Anolis, and as such inspired the design of the Silverscale. Though outdated the Basilisk is still used by some military units and mercenary groups, acting as a simpler, lighter Jager.
