Heavy Gear Blitz! Field Manual - Core Rulebook Revised
Publisher: Dream Pod 9

I picked up DP9's Heavy Gear Blitz Two Player Starter Kit this year at GenCon, which included a black & white, digest-sized copy of this book as well as the older "Locked and Loaded" rulebook. While handy at the table, my old eyes did have some issues with the tiny print in the reduced size prints.

Fortunately, DP9 - much to their credit - offers those same two rulebooks in full color (and full size!) as free PDF downloads here. I was very happy with both these products and recommend them as a must-have for anyone who's picked up the game elsewhere and only has the digest books. In full color, the reference diagrams and fluff artwork shines, and the L&L book also includes color painting guides for the minis!

My one gripe is that these PDFs are not optimized at all. For the page count and graphic content they are far larger in file size than they should be, especially compared to a full color layout, higher page count rulebook (a Pathfinder book from Paizo for example.)

Still, worth the price, and they ARE the full rules for HGB so you can learn to play for free, using these and some of the other free downloads at DP9's homepage, and some minis or tokens you already have on hand. A good idea before you invest in a lot of expensive minis.

Heavy Gear Blitz! Field Manual - Core Rulebook Revised

The Heavy Gear Blitz! Field Manual - Core Rulebook Revised is exactly what it says in the tin. Stripped of setting fluff, the pdf presents an updated set of rules for use with all current and upcoming Heavy Gear Blitz products.

The PDF is clear and easy to read, but does lack bookmarks, something that would improve the usability of the product. That said, the rules themselves are presented very clearly, and the addition of flowcharts to handle some of the more involved mechanics is very helpful, especially to players who are still getting into the Heavy Gear tabletop hobby.

Those who are looking to pick this up should be made aware however that while the book has all the rules, it doesn't contain the army lists. For those, you'll have to pick up Locked and Loaded, or any of the other Army Books.
