Dream Pod 9 - Heavy Gear Blitz - Quickstart Rules

We ran a game of Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz last night and a few people wanted to know where to find the Heavy Gear Blitz Quickstart Rules.  DP9 also has produced a nice Quick Reference Sheet for easy reference.  They also have a Quick Reference for Army Building.  We didn't exactly do everything correctly during our game, but found the mechanics really fun and quite interesting.

There are a lot of modifiers that effect your chances to hit including unit rating, weapon modifiers, range modifiers, speed modifiers, defending unit rating and defending player speed modifiers.  It sounds like a lot, but once you get the hang of it, the game flows nicely.  If you do score a hit then you apply your weapon damage times the amount you beat your opponent by.  If the damage amount is over your targets armor rating, you start applying hits.  Depending on how much the damage is, more hits can be applied.  Most vehicles and Gears can withstand 3-4 hits before being destroyed.  The more hits a vehicle or gear has on it, the less effective it is in battle and the easier it is to take out.
