Gear Up Issue 4

Watermarked PDF

Conflicts on the battlefield are often fought on unfavorable ground, but the advent of walker vehicles, such as Heavy Gears, changed the face of warfare. Commanders still have to rely on favorable terrain and prepared positions to maximize their odds in the face of opposition. In order to gain mastery of the battlefield, these officers turn to the combat engineer companies. Inside of this issue of Gear UP, you will find combat engineering sections for Northern, Southern, and Peace River armies and the rules to field them in Heavy Gear Blitz.

Also in this issue are three new Hired Guns for Heavy Gear Arena, the latest chapter of Primary Solutions, and the first of a two part in depth analysis on fielding a MILICIA force in Heavy Gear Blitz. Rounding out this massive issue is the first of our official after action reports. Find out how the CEF's brand new HHT-90 fared against Colonel Arthur's PAK forces.

Plus announcement and details on Dream Pod 9's First Annual Golden Gear Miniature Painting Contest for Heavy Gear Blitz and Arena.

All this and more in this issue of Gear UP 4!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
