Gear Up Issue 5

Watermarked PDF

Gear UP 5 is here, and it's a monster issue of miniature hobby related articles, from the Golden Gear entries, to Show Me Your Colors, to Terra Nova Terraformer, and introducing Dream Pod 9 Studio Masterclass. And these are just some of the new developments on the hobby side of Heavy Gear Blitz.

We've also got an artist interview with designer and 3D modeller David Tauzia, who contributed to the cover of Perfect Storm and modelled the Lancier, Chargeur, and Hussar. It's also got yet another installment of Prime Solutions by Jason Dickerson and drawn by Mariko Shimamoto.

Gerrit Kitts' MILICIA spotlight article continues in this issue with suggested squad layouts, some stories on life in the AST by Sean Callaway, and some MILICIA uniform studies.

We know Arena players are dying to be able to field NuCoal units in their games, so we've also included rules for that in this issue. But we know what you've really been waiting for since the release of Perfect Storm NuCoal Field Guide, the Field Testing BETA of the revised Field Guide Threat Values for the North, South, PRDF, Leagueless, Black Talon, Caprice, CEF, Utopia, and Eden.

We hope you enjoy this issue!

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.
