Note: the most recent version of these rules is now available here.
Today Bacon and I have an exciting announcement for you, duckfans: we’ve just released our fan-made rules for Heavy Gear Blitz! We previously posted about our feelings on the way the official rules were heading, and we decided around that time that we would go through the rules and make some of the changes we’d been advocating for ourselves. It ended up as a much bigger project than we anticipated, and we’ve now rewritten the entire manual and the unit lists.
You can download our manual in PDF form here.
Our list of model stats and costs will be online within the next few days as we have some formatting things to sort out. We’ll also be having them added to Gear Grinder (thanks to Samuli Aura for agreeing to that!) so people can use it to build forces.
If you decide to give our rules a try we’d love to hear what you think of them so please feel free to comment! Alternately, you can email us at email@example.com
In the future we want to provide some guidelines for extending this ruleset out to e.g. 15mm Sci Fi or other non Heavy Gear Blitz settings. We are personally going to use these rules for 6mm Warhammer 40k (Epic) games at some point.
