Long time no chat everyone. Move is finally over and things are starting to get back to normal around the house, which means I can start focusing on wargaming a bit more again.
To start that off is the latest news of Heavy Gear Rally that DP9 is going to release later on, and officially start showing off rules, minis, and whatnot at GenCon. This has not stopped DP9 from showing previews on their Facebook page the last few weeks. The game looks interesting in a few aspects, namely it is a board game that focuses on the scout gears like the Ferret, BullDog, ect. It is a game for 2-4 players according the the information released on Facebook this morning.
Of course until Gen Con some questions won't be able to get answered unless DP9 does it themselves. Questions which as what material is the minis made out of? Metal doesn't seem popular with board games, so could be restic or plastic from my guess. What is the price point? There really isn't much in the box compared to board game like Rune Wars or even Ticket to Ride, so anything above $50 seems questionable. There is also the questions of scale and if you will be able to use other gears from the Heavy Gear universe.
Unfortunately I don't usually attend GenCon so those tid bits of information will get leaked once the details become available.
