Development Blog #12: Varis rules

I’m glad to bring you the Alpha test rules for the Varis for the South and NuCoal factions!

Varis 3D Model Sneak Peek

A sneak peek today at what our newest team member, 3D sculptor, Jason Geyer has been working on. 

Alpha Dragonfly rules and aircraft.

Development Blog #11

The recent announcement of the Dragonfly as an April Fools joke was an early tease and a good test for the Heavy Gear rules currently in Alpha development.

The Alpha rules have been a project that I have been involved with for over 2 years now and one of the hopes was always to show through the rules that a game of Heavy Gear is a part of a larger conflict with long range artillery and air support.

When building the rules we always assumed the aircraft models would be the same fleet scale counters that have always worked so ably for Heavy Gear Blitz. However, there was always the dream that we would do a larger aircraft model just to give the sense of scale the world has. For a fighter jet, or a bombe, this wouldn’t make a lot of sense since the model is effectively off-board and never sticks around doing only strafing runs. But for a model such as the Dragonfly and other hoppers the possibility has always been there that a 12mm scale model could be a part of the battlefield.

No April fools day joke today, just great news, the new Northern Dragonfly Hopper (VTOL Aircraft) is back from rapid prototyping. The first set of production molds was finished up this weekend and the kit is now available for pre-order on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store.
 

Development Blog #10: April 11th rules update

So it’s update time again.

This is the last Alpha rules and army lists update before we start putting together the initial Beta rules. This means that the rules are still slightly in flux and the unit stats are getting more and more locked down. There are still many things to playtest, many combinations of armies, many combinations of support and unit, and many things to look forward to.

There are some pretty big changes this time around, most notably are:
