This is the third of my original RAFM score that consisted of three Hunters, two Jaguars and a Bricklayer. My next step is to make up the standard Jaguar as the squad leader for this my first squad of Gears. I'm not sure if that's a legal squad in the game, but given I'm intending to use my own rules so I'll make squads to match my rules.
That's not meant to offend any hardcore Heavy Gear players. I'd be happy to play with anyone who knows the rules well enough to teach me and have a fun game. The odds are long on that happening, so I need rules my partner can get to grips with, and so I'm adapting the Star Wars X-Wing combat system.
I plan to post some construction rules, really too grand a description for my rough notes, soon.
