Don't we need a Heavy Gear Blitz thread going?
I've literally spent the past two days in Gear Garage trying to get a 1000 point army that will work.
On one hand I've got a Northern Army with H.Aller support with zippy Cheetah's painting targets for my super duper death throwing Grizzly(s). Also Paratrooper Infantry with anti-gear weaponry for wherever I damn well feel like dropping them.
On the other, I've got a smaller, but really scary Black Talon Rape Train full of Dark Heavy Vultures and Dual HRP Dark Naga(s). With this build I've got borderline obscene direct/indirect damage. The extra actions and CP's is nice with the Dark Talons but I don't know how well a small group of elite gears will do against a standard army.
Meh... The Northern Army seems only suited for defense. Park everything in the back and let the Cheetahs scout/cap everything. The Dark Talons have Jump Jets, Stealth, Extra Actions, above average armor, and a boat load ordnance they can throw your way.
What do you guys think? What would you rather NOT fight
