Heavy Gear Blitz – Rattlesnake

Been painting up another obsolete old model for my mercenary compagnie in Heavy Gear Blitz. This time it’s the Rattlesnake which was an early strike gear, faster and lighter than a Jager and, crucially, armed with a medium rocket pack (MRP) rather than the light rocket pack of similar cheap gears (or even the Black Mamba strike gear!).

The Rattlesnake doesn’t have any stats in the Living Rule Book, but I will be posting stats up on the blog so others can add it to their game.

I’m pretty happy with how he came out. I think it’s clear my painting style is slowly moving toward higher contrast models with more variation in shade, but more gradual transitions

Note the tiny little camera head. The pilot’s head is in the armoured block below that, with a vision slit in case the camera gets blown off!

Heavy Gear Chargeur Engineering Gear

Here’s my most recent completed model, the Chargeur Engineering Gear for NuCoal. I really like all the engineering models in the game, and I’m planning to eventually build a squad with one of each type for my NuCoal force. I’m fairly pleased with the base, which has the gear either clearing debris, building an impromptu roadblock, or shifting supplies around or the edge of a road through the badlands. I’m also very happy with the canopy, which was my first attempt at painting this kind of effect.
