Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Peace River Argos Model

10 likes

This weeks preview is the Argos model for Peace River, which is their answer to the North's Kodiak and South's King Cobra models. The stock Argos model has a Heavy Rotary Cannon, Medium Artillery Rockets on it's back, and a Medium Vibro Blade (Axe). With this larger model we are trying a new 3 part poseable arm configuration, where the shoulder is hollow with slots for the upper arm to be positioned (angled) wider out and lower arm rotated in towards or away from the body and glued as wanted, checkout the image below with these and other detail improvements and information.

As with our previous previews we are including a link to a new 3d PDF of the Argos which the Solidworks 3d software allows us to make now, click here to download the 3d PDF (4.2MB) file. Once on the download page, you will need to right click on your mouse for the option to save the file or you may have a download button at the top right of the screen to click, as 3d PDFs won't open automatically online. And you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for PC or MAC, here is a link to its download/install page. Once you have the filed downloaded to your computer and open it using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. See our previous update with the Warrior IV preview at the following link for a fast preview of how the 3d PDF works.

We want your feedback on the Argos model, leave you comments below. We'll continue tweaking the Argos parts up until the Kickstarter launch to get the best new plastic models possible.  

The next Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter preview will be the Crusader IV for the Peace River Faction and then we'll move on to the NuCoal and Utopia Faction models.

      Wow, I really like this one. The new technique for more pose-able arms sounds/looks great too!
