I enjoyed working on that ESE Black Mamba duelist so much that I decided to paint a gear in Guillaume’s style to add to the group, rather than rebasing and touching up another prepainted model. Since they’re the ESE they like an odd mix of cheap military surplus gears and more expensive flashy mercenaries and bodyguards to the Emirs, so I painted up a cheap old Anolis Refit recon gear.
The objective was to have the model fit in with the stuff Guillaume had already painted, but still fit with the way I paint. I don’t know what paints he used, so I had to approximate using what I have.
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.
