Heavy Gear Schnell

I love the models Dream Pod 9 puts out for Heavy Gear Blitz. I really liked the demo game of Blitz that I had at Gencon last summer and decided to buy into the game. I envisioned being able to play huge sprawling games with awesome gears. Unfortunately, once I got the full rulebook and…

 

Heavy Gear Blitz Reshot

I’ve been lazy with my photography. Recently I got a light cube to change all of that. No more dimly lit photos with too many shadows. Armed with my new purchase and two day-light lamps, I set out to reshoot most of my more recent painting. Since my Heavy Gear Blitz minis had the most…

 

Visigoth Heavy Tank

Yet another of my ebay finds. The Visigoth is one pretty mean looking tank once you get it painted. This one came out fantastic I think. Bright anime type colors. I’ve had a problem painting bright in the past without it looking garish. This guy has been sitting around forever half painted as I never…

 

Recon Black Mambas

This is another lot of minis from the cheap stuff I got on ebay. Once again, stripping is not worth the pain. Anyhow, these guys were patterned after the Iguanas I finished not too long ago. The model itself is a little better looking I think, and I added more solid color touches here.  One…

 

I wanna Iguana

Awhile back I bought a large lot of Heavy Gear Minis on Ebay. They were poorly photographed and even more poorly described, so I got a pretty screaming deal. I’ve finally gotten around to finishing part of that lot in new colors. Note to self: Never buy partially painted minis again, its not worth the…

 

Glorious Southern Victory

Late breaking news- The SRA engaged the Northern aggressor dogs in heavy city fighting recently. The imperialist northerners bought several heavy striders into dense urban terrain along with commando units, assault gears, and some light gear support. Our glorious nationalist forces repelled the invaders with prejudice. The iron rain of our spitting cobras deterred the…

 

Southern Infantry

Infantry are a pain in the ass. I thought 15mm Flames of War infantry were small, but these guys are 10-12mm scale. Lucky for me that means the detail level is down as well. Quite a few of the infantry were miscast with missing barrels, etc. I’m not real happy with Dream Pod 9 about…

 

Southern Demo Drones

These two demo drones belong to my support Cadre that I painted awhile ago. These got lost on my painting table and I finished them when they resurfaced. If you see a little white in the bushes, the glue just isn’t 100% dry just yet.

 

Southern Stike Cadre

This is the third unit I painted for Heavy Gear Blitz. I finished the paint before I started the fire dragon, but only now got around to basing them. I was debating using 30mm or 40mm bases for the Black Mambas for awhile and it held me up. I ended up going with the 40’s,…

 

Fire Dragon

I got my very first strider for the south. A fire dragon! I think I’ll call him Puff. I know that Puff probably isn’t the most effective model, but he’s pretty cool looking. Not having experience with six legged models, I watched a few videos of scorpions walking on youtube in order to get the…
