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.
The third of these I want to add is the Anolis R, still available from the DP9 store. I present it here in the format of the LRB so others can use it in their games.
|Code Name:||Anolis R|
|Unit Type:||Recon Gear|
|The Anolis was originally developed to fulfil the badly needed role of a dedicated scout gear. A series of poor design choices and development setbacks resulted in such a compromised and wildly unpopular gear that it was quickly retired. The Anolis R (Refit) uses modern technology to overcome most of the faults of the gear and it is now used as a cheaper alternative to the Iguana in certain MILICIA regiments.|
