New Heavy Gear: Development Curator Blog Introduction

Author: David McLeod, Heavy Gear Game Development Curator

January 22nd, 2014, Blog 001

 

Welcome to the Heavy Gear Development Blog.

This blog will be a place to announce and discuss the new rules edition for Heavy Gear, and other related topics. One of the many fun parts of this development is that I get to define a great many things, one of which is my title. I’ve decided that being a development curator is a pretty good description of what I do. I’ll elaborate on that later, first I should introduce myself.

 

I came to Heavy Gear relatively recently when I worked the manager of a game store here in Canada. I was looking for a new science fiction game for the store and we started to get some in and sell people some starter armies. I started with a Peace River force, mostly because I loved the concept that an arms manufacturer would have the word peace in the title. I assumed that this must have been chosen ironically and appreciated the humor behind it. This initial hook pulled me into a story universe that is satisfyingly complex. I can not call myself a manga superfan, there are forum members who can quote line and verse from every mecha film and series ever made, but I can call myself a fan.

 

Heavy Gear Fleet Scale Collectors Package

We have had a few requests from customers asking if its possible to get just one set of all the Heavy Gear Fleet Scale counter miniatures for their collections. So we are making available the following online store exclusive Heavy Gear Fleet Scale Collectors Package with one of each of the landships and counter sets, which will include everything listed below.
