RAFM Mambas

Posted on June 23rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

 Until recently I only had two Mambas.  One a brawler variant and the other was less than complete: no head and engine.  Now I have two more: a Black Mamba and a Snake Eye Mamba.  So, it looks like I have the elements of support squ…

Some More Size Comparisons

 Didn’t realize that two of the little Dogs had broken arms, they’re that tiny, but you can see it in the picture.Back here I took some pictures of GZGs not VOTOMS, but I was asked if I could take a picture showing them next to other mecha.  …

RAFM Even More Reinforcements

Posted on May 5th, 2017 under , . Posted by

And just when you think you have enough, along comes the chance to buy more!  I couldn’t resist these, especially as the bundle included spare weapon packs, which will mean I can play about with the weapon loadouts on my collection of Heavy Gears….

Southern Army Assembles

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I have scored seven Southern Jagers and one more Northern Hunter off eBay.  I’ve gone from not having enough models for a full squad to being able to make up two squads, which means I now have a Southern Milicia force to face my Northern Guard.  I can’t begin to tell you all how insanely happy this makes me, and here I was thinking I’d never get into Heavy Gear, what with being the old BattleTech grognard that I am.

And here are the other pictures from the RAFM catalogue of Southern Gears I found online, with a list of all the models issued.  Again, those listed in bold are those I’ve managed to get hold of.


Jager 1300
Blitz Jager 130 


(I have two)
Black Mamba 1302
Long Fang Black Mamba 1303

Iguana 1304
Blitz Iguana 1305
Spitting Cobra 1306
Striking Cobra 1307

Stone Mason 1308

Fire Jager 1309
 


(I have two)
Snakeye Black Mamba 1310
 


(I have one coming)
Support Cobra 1311


RazorFang Black Mamba 1312

King Cobra 1313
Light Artillery 1314

Number apparently not used 1315
Standard Infantry 1316 


(not shown)
Heavy Infantry 1317 

(not shown)

Recon Infantry 1318


Sniper Infantry 1319
Chameleon 1322  

(not shown)
Barbed Fang 1323  

(not shown)
Black Box Iguana 1324 

(not shown)

Jager Recon 1325 

(not shown, but I have six)
Artillery Cobra 1326 

(not shown, but I have one)

Lidded Iguana 1327 
 

(not shown)
Spitting Mamba 1328 
 

(not shown)
Armored Jager 1329 

(not shown, but I have one)

”Azure Devils” Box 2051
 

(not shown)
Naga Strider 2054
 

(not shown)
Hun Tanks 2056 

(not shown)

So as before, I have a plan, which is to finish painting my Northern Guard before moving on to make up a squad of Southern Gears.  After that I’m thinking of going back and making up my Grizzly, Jaguar Firestarter and Mammoth Northern Gears.  I now have a box full of old RAFM Gears, a veritable lead mountain, stashed away for a rainy day.

Returning from Hotlead – What a Rush!!!

Hotlead is an event that I look forward to every year. Last year I missed it, but this year – I attended and ran two participation games of Frostgrave. I will write about the Frostgrave games later, but suffice it to say, they went well. Every year, I …
