Games I Like – Heavy Gear Blitz – Took photos of my Northern Guard army as well!

So these guys are also now properly photographed (I should be able to post stuff like this all week, I’ve got cases of stuff I’m now finally able to get around to!).

This was my second Blitz! army, painted after I’d gotten a handle on the rules. It contains again, a combination of old and new Heavy Gear minis from the current and 90’s ranges (I have a fondness for old figs). I was a bit more comfortable with the rules and thus took a higher Priority army list with some interesting widgets in it.

Northern Infantry Platoon

Just like in my Southern army, I decided to take some Infantry as a great points filler, and because they’re just so versatile in holding objectives and as a good toolbox durable unit. They can be upgraded to be paratroops as well, allowing them to join my Airdroppable gears behind enemy lines.

Northern General Purpose Squad

This larger North GP Squad was meant to be close range brawlers as opposed to the more discreet Southern cadres in my other army. With a pair of Snub Cannon armed Hunters, they certainly pack a punch that even puts a scare in tanks! The figures are ALL older 90’s sculpts, but still look great and were fun to paint.

Aller Heavy Tank

I’ll admit it, there was no plan here. I’d wanted to paint this Aller for some time as I simply love painting tanks. He’s a bruiser of a vehicle and his Rail Gun makes a mockery of most any Gear in the game. He comes out only at 1000TV or more.

Northern Airborne Squad

I love the idea of air-droppable Gears. Giant robots falling out of the sky on the enemy just FEELS cool, even if it doesn’t do that well in the game. All the models are again, older sculpts. Two Airborne Cheetas and a Hunter require the upgrade, but the Jaguars are all Airdroppable by deisgn (as are most high performance gears)./em>;

Much like my south, I’ve got a pile of stuff for this army yet to be painted. Maybe if I can convince someone in the Southern US to give Heavy Gear a try, they will again get to see the gaming table!

  1. Very, very nice. I think I like this army better than your Southern force. 🙂
