Heavy Gear Blitz – Dartjager 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.

The second of these I want to add is the Dartjager, still available to purchase from Dream Pod 9 as an Arena gear. I present it here in the format of the LRB so others can use it in their games.

Heavy Gear Blitz – Dinotacular!

Ooh I’ve got some lovely beasts for you today. From the Mekongese jungles of South Terra Nova come lizard riders – a team and a squad, ready for action in Heavy Gear Blitz.

These aren’t the official models – rather they are official southern infantry converted and mounted on 10mm scale dinosaur models from Magister Militum with green stuff saddles. I think they look rather nice though and show a bit more variety than the standard models from Dream Pod 9. I think they might also work out a bit cheaper!
