Heavy Gear Drake Gearstrider – Variants

I saw someone on one of the Heavy Gear Facebook groups ask about how to assemble the variants for the Southern Drake Gearstrider and since I have mine magnetised so it can be any variant, I offered to take some pictures. Here they are:

More pictures after the jump.

Drake Gearstrider: Heavy Gear Painting

Hello duckchums!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a painting update, partly because I haven’t been painting much. A little while ago a cyclist crashed into me (entirely his fault) and I badly broke one finger. Sadly the finger will never work quite as well as before and has to be splinted for a couple of months, which has made many activities quite annoying for me. Happily it was on my off-hand and wasn’t the index finger.

It’s taken me a little while to get used to painting with that annoyance and to generally get back into the habit after a break (hahah).

But I’m very pleased to say I’ve finished painting a model which I started about two years ago and had made a resolution to finish this month; the Drake Gearstrider by Dream Pod 9 (available from Dream Pod 9 if you’re in the New World, or from Shiny Games by request if you’re in the EU).

Pics after the jump!
