One Hunter down

Here is the first hunter completed. I had to just finish one I cannot seem to get into assembly line painting of the gears. It just feels like I'm gettin' nothin' done.

Hunters on the horizon

This time I'm doing a 2-fer; I offer up a pair of hunter gears. Still WIP's but they are getting there.

Here is the finished Assault Grizzly.


The Assault Grizzly starts shaping up.

Here is my first infantry stand; boy I'm gonna need to work on taking pics of the infantry; it's really tough.

I've also included a comparison shot with the Jaguar.

Second Gear on the horizon

Next up is a bigger, meaner Gear; the Assault Grizzly. He will be sporting a Heavy Bazooka, a Disposable Pack gun and a pair of Rocket pods.

I built my Assault Grizzly with old style round rocket pods. I had to build new mounts for the pods to fit them next to the heavy bazooka. I think they turned out ok.

First one almost done

Here is the Jag about 90% finished; there are a few details still to pick out and some touch ups plus a little ground cover on the base. I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out.

I'm making pretty good progress and am really happy with how this gear is turning out.

The Garage is Open

Here is a WIP test model for my Northern Guard army. It's a Jaguar gear for my Strike Squad. It is one of five models I hadn't build during my previous HG gaming, all pre-Blitz resculpt. He will be joined by a pair of Hunter Gears, an Assault Grizzly and a Kodiak. (Oh how I love Kodiak gears!) Hopefully this will be a legal Strike Squad for LaL; if not it'll be fun to paint.

Locked and Loaded

With the release of the latest set of Heavy Gear rules "locked and loaded" from Dream Pod 9, I've decided it is high time to start gaming in this wonderful world again.

To those unfamiliar with the game and setting, Heavy Gear is a Sci-Fi game with a focus on "Heavy Gears" they are roughly 15 foot tall armored suits that bridge the gap between conventional infantry and armored vehicles. Heavy Gears make up about half of each army list, the other half is filled with Tanks/AFV's, Infantry, Artillery and Aircraft.

This blog will chronicle my painting and gaming for the Heavy Gear setting. Up first will be my Northern Guard army focused on a Gear Regiment of my own creation.
