...and now for something completely different!

Well, I've taken the plunge and bought the PAK/CEF starter box for Heavy Gear.

Yeah I know, I know, I'm always crying poverty, but the BFG fleet auctions are going well and with 750 pts of Ork ships already, I'd rather give them a few tries before investing more. Plus now that my 'OOH! OOH! I wanna paint Cygnar' bug has passed, I'll probably sell those minis (no Rob, I won't sell your Nemo mini) & the Forces of Cygnar book. I think my IG Demolisher will go too & just wait to see what new tank kit comes out with the 40k Spearhead update. So it all kinda balances out. I know a lot of blogs like to follow their 'hobby funds' quite closely, whereas I just sorta 'wing it'. I usually finance my new purchases through the sales of old stuff, and I'm sure that my return to Heavy Gear will be no different.

Something different. In the old tactical rules hovertank tactics more resembled strafing runs, and Scott & I agreed that as much trouble as we were having with the rules, that we wouldn't even consider trying hovertanks.

Plus, I won't be replacing minis that I've sold previously (aside from a lone GP gear squad, assuming I get one). I do that often enough in 40k already, that and they look cool!
