Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Updated Utopian Armiger Models!

9 likes

Our 3d modeler updated the Utopian Armiger models that we previewed in an earlier update. Mainly making the upper arm section a bit shorter and the front armored skirt plate a bit smaller. Plus the arms are now 2 parts to allow for greater model poseability, and re-posed the Recce model with the legs wider, see the image below. They all still have the same weapon in the preview, but he is working on the other Utopian weapons options as well, which we'll show during the upcoming Kickstarter.

He also took the time to make 3d PDF files for the Commando, Recce, and Support Armigers, so you can all checkout the models from different angles and see how the parts go together. Click the Armiger names that follow to download the Commando Armiger 3d PDF (0.54MB) file, Recce Armiger 3d PDF (0.57MB) file, and Support Armiger 3d PDF (0.44MB) 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.

Thank you for all the feedback on the new Peace River Uhlan Strider model from our last preview. Our modeler is going to take another crack at the Uhlan and try and get it looking close to the original artwork with the weapons mounted on the shoulders. Once he's finish, we'll do a new update preview for it.

      Love the new poseable arms! Overall these guys look pretty neat (really nice variety compared to the other factions). Their form is a little strange (in a good way), and with the right paint-job/decals I think they'll work out really well.
