Heavy Gear Blitz – the Brigand Rules V2 release

Hello duckfans and gearheads. After an extended period of pondering, fiddling, and testing, we are now ready to present to you our version 2 release of the Brigand Rules, our fan ruleset for Heavy Gear Blitz.

For those who don’t know: we had increasingly found ourselves unsatisfied the the direction and overall quality of the official Living Rule Book version of Heavy Gear Blitz and decided to take what we felt was good from that ruleset, throw out what was bad, and generally rewrite everything to be an easier read and a smoother playing experience.

Anyway, you can download the Brigand V2 manual in PDF form here and there is a full changelog covering the move from V1 to V2, along with reasons for every change, available here.

The wonderful Samuli Aura has agreed to update the Brigand model stats in Gear Grinder so expect to see those very shortly.

For those who don’t use Gear Grinder we also have a small menu of HTML model list options:

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 brigandrules@mail.com

 

Heavy Gear Blitz – the Brigand Rules V1!

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 brigandrules@mail.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.

 

Heavy Gear Chasseur Squad

 

Hi everyone. I recently decided to paint some more Heavy Gear models – it had been a while since I did any as a lot of my hobby time has been going on our fan rewrite of the Heavy Gear Blitz Living Rulebook (which is almost ready for release!). I realised I’d never actually painted any ordinary trooper Gears – the basic Hunter, Jager or Chasseur that are meant to be the staple of each Terra Novan force. So to rectify that, here’s a squad of NuCoal Chasseurs.
