Yes, check them out! Craig has done a fantastic job promoting a great game.

Check out his Youtube channel too: http://www.youtube.com/user/HeavyGearGuy

There is no sci-fi game out there that better represents advanced warfare than Heavy Gear Blitz.

Again, a great battle report. Too bad you had to retire early.

How many armies do you now have, since I have seen you field atleast 5 (North, South, PRDF, Leagless, PAK/CEF)?

I pretty much have the core of all the armies in the main rulebook. I also have couple squads of CEF Frames from the first supplement. Combined with my PAK stuff that lets me field CEF pretty easily.
I have tried to not focus on any one army so I can be anybody's 'bad guy' when needed. Its a bit of the gamemaster in me. :)
When I play for myself though it is usually one of the three Badlands forces (PRDF, PAK, Legueless).

1) Well I started with Two GP squads and the rule book. You can purchase the Interpolar War set which contains what you need at the DP9 online store. They have a special on right now. http://www.dp9.com

2) Paint them up (10 gear in total)

3) Build some terrain (3'x3' or less terrain space is all you need) rocks, hills, buildings, etc... see my HG Demo thread.

4) Join the Dream Pod 9 Pod Squad. John will supply you with a kit (T-shirt, posters, measuring tapes) and information on how to demo.

5) Run some demos at your local game store and watch people get hooked on Heavy Gear Blitz.

It is such a breath of fresh air from 40K. Tell them they only need 5 gears, but typically the game is played with 15 or less. $110 starter army gets them the rule book and 9-10 gears. About the same cost as a 40K battle force.

I ran Demos.
I ordered both a North and a South Strike Squad, built them and painted them.
Printed out some copies of the Free Starter rules.
And ran Demos at my FLGS.
Got several people interested and went from there.

My store also didnt carry HG at the time but once a couple people got interested they started stocking the basics and doing store orders for anybody who asks.

I used Strike squads for my demos because they're sexy. :)

EDIT>>> Yeah, what Tim said. ;)
