Heavy Gear Blitz – Bobcat recon gear

Hello friendly interpeeps!

I recently got an order from the excellent UK miniature store Shiny Games – the sole UK distributor of Heavy Gear Blitz miniatures. I highly recommend the store – it has very good customer service and is quick to post, plus the guy who runs it is clearly a gamer himself.

In fact the reason for this post is that the order came with a little note from the manager of Shiny Games saying he looked forward to seeing a Bobcat gear painted, which spurred me into action.

So here he is!

Heavy Gear Blitz – Mother and Tanklets (Aller and Klemms)

I’ve just finished painting a third Klemm light tank and putting the three I now have on bases with mud/grass/tank tracks etc.

I thought I’d take a group shot with the Northern Heavy Tank, the Aller. All the turrets are swappable so I can make any of the variants of the Klemm/Aller. They aren’t particularly stunning paintjobs but I quite like the way they turned out.

As usual I include a gear and some infantry for scale (which is 1/144 by the way).

Heavy Gear Blitz – Anolis R 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 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.
