Development blog: Northern Guard sub-list preview

Part of the challenge with the redevelopment of Heavy Gear was to make army construction intuitive and fast. Developing sub-lists for the game adds an acceptable level of complexity to army construction because it fully serves the purpose of allowing a player to focus a vary wide list of models as an army.

When developing the lists I placed an absolute restriction of two pages per sub-list. The first page would include all the background and fluff that we want to use to flesh out each army. The sub-list cannot radically change how a faction plays but it can should the player to specialize in a play style with a faction that they already want without mandating a particular choice.

 

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:
