Heavy Gear Blitz Rules


I've only managed to play Heavy Gear a couple of times. The main obstacle is that when it comes to mecha games, BattleTech is the 800lbs gorilla in the room.

Therefore I have to pitch Heavy Gear to BattleTech players as an alternative to playing classic or Alpha Strike. And, any Heavy Gear game I run has to also compete with other games like Star Wars X-Wing, which feel more modern from their play sequences.

Anyway, the discussion is over on the Dream Pod 9 forum. If you play Heavy Gear or have an interest in mecha games, then check it out.

  2. Hello Ashley,
    Long time lurker, I am a huge fan of heavy gear, and have run into the same troubles as you seem to have. Have you made any progress on that front?

    1. I'd like to say something positive about great strides forward etc, but real life has gotten in the way. So no, not really.

      Keep pondering over doing my own mecha rules, but again real life means what little energy I have for doing projects is all focused on my writing.
