Games I Like – Heavy Gear Blitz – Took some Photos of my Southern Republican Army

So while I had my light box out to take photos of my Keizai Waza I shot some proper (as in, not in-game) photos of my Heavy Gear armies.

Here’s the first one; the Southern Republican Army (SRA).

CORE

General Purpose Squad 1

Nice simple team with a single Medium Autocannon upgrade and a Command Jager.

General Purpose Squad 2

This team is a bit more complex with the Leader upgraded to pilot an Iquana (older 90’s style model) a Jager carrying a Medium Autocannon and a Jager carrying a Paratrooper rifle.

Southern Infantry Platoon

Infantry might not see like much in Heavy Gear, but they are really hard to kill in one go if you don’t have anti-infantry equipped models. That can make them perfect for hunkering down on objectives. Give them a couple anti-gear rifles and they can even occasionally plink a box or two off enemy gears.

SPECIALISTS

Naga Strider

Sagittarius Strider

Specialists in my army take the form of a Naga and Sagittarius Strider. The Naga is a terror with its Sensor boom and Anti Tank missiles, letting you rain rockets from behind corners or call in fire support with your roving Iguanas. The Sagittarius is an infantry masher, inexpensive and able to squash those hard to shift foot troops holding objectives./em>;

AUXILIARIES

Recon Cadre’s are a great way to get mobile target locks on hard to see models for your Naga or other indirect fire. The Black Mamba leading them gives them some punch as well. I’ve often used the Satellite uplink on the Chatterbox Iguana to feed an action to the Naga for an extra missile shot!

Strike Cadre

For heavy hitters, I’ve got a Strike Cadre led by a King Cobra (the older, 90’s model). Including a Brawler Black Mamba with a Heavy Grenade Launcher and some armoured Jackets on the other high performance gears, these guys are fast and can dish it out like no-one’s business.

SUPPORT

AA Medium Autocannon Turrets

Support Choices unlock the larger a threat value game you play. I painted up a couple of AA Turrets to match the rest of my army, keeping those pesky air strikes thinking twice about targeting my striders .

Sadly, I haven’t gotten a chance to play Heavy Gear in some time, but I really enjoyed painting this army. I’ve got a Fire Support squad still in pieces and a couple of Hun tanks as well that I really ought to paint. Maybe I’ll do that in between projects!
