Development blog schedule for sub-lists

While I methodically complete the summary from the alpha test of the new Heavy Gear rules and we move to a rules beta it's important to remember that the lists provided in the Alpha are never supposed to be the be all and end all of the lists. Equipment availability and the character of different military forces on Terra Nova goes beyond a list of equipment.

For that we will have the sub-lists (Force specific army lists). These force lists will be a chance for players to allow for a more defined character to their armies based on their preferred units and play styles. 

 

These force lists will be in alpha form while the core rules are locked down in beta and will receive periodic updates according to a schedule. The release of these lists will be staggered by faction so that no one gets left behind. Here is the schedule:

 

From Mold to Parts

 
There’s lots of pictures and videos out there about casting using centrifugal spinning but I thought it would amuse my blog readers to take a break from announcements and updates for a peek under the hood of Dream Pod 9’s metal casting.
 
First off there is the rubber blank, I have cut the pre-punched center hole out, it will be replaced with a metal form to hold the space for pouring in the metal.
 
 

Naga Strider Ground Mode Sneak Peek

Phil wanted to give the Southern players a bit of loving between the new Peace River miniature sculpting projects. Checkout a sneak peak of the Southern Naga Strider in its ground movement mode with a new set of folded down legs he made. The Naga shown has the Long Fang variant weapons loadout of twin light field guns, which look great in this low rider leg pose. 

It's sub-list time

With the feedback from the bulk of the Alpha testing being put together for the Beta Rules release now is the time to survey our players and put together the schedule for Alpha development of the faction sub-lists.
 
Please visit the forums and vote for the sub-lists that you want to see under discussion first!
