As the layout is still ongoing I'll continue with some previews and explanations for some decisions made along the way. A lot of the work for the new Heavy Gear rules has been to make sure that the new rules could faithfully render models from the field manual. In some cases a straight port became more and more impossible and some radical new directions had to be taken to be true to the design but balance properly.
The South strider the Fire Dragon is an example of this. The Fire Dragon has always stood out as one of the most odd looking models in the South range. Six legs in a game where most other models have two and four at most plus a rounded. bulbous feel makes it a very alien looking strider.
