Mech Attack Adepticon Playtest Report

The club is putting on its first-ever game at Adepticon next weekend, and so last week we got together to playtest the scenario we’ll be running there. The setup is similar to last year’s scenario: a raid where the attackers are aiming to destroy certain buildings in a built-up urban environment. The rest of the ... Read more

Robotech, Battletech and Mechwarrior Mechs for 28mm Wargaming

Thanks to a recent trade with a gentleman on DakkaDakka, I acquired a huge box of mech toys for 28mm gaming. With this acquisition of figures, my collection has gotten pretty big, so I took some time to write up a guide to Robogear, Battletech, Mechwarrior, Macross and other mecha suitabable for 28mm gaming. Throughout ... Read more

Alpha Strike Game Report and Review

Though originally designed for 15mm scale miniatures, I will be using them for our 10mm scale sci-fi battles and have made a few modifications ... Read more

From the workbench: Converted plastic mechs

A number of months ago I sat down one evening and hacked out a bunch of conversions of the inexpensive plastic mechs sold by EM-4 Miniatures, and this week I finally got around to photographing them. These are by no means finished, but I thought I’d share some of the possibilities hidden in these 20-year-old ... Read more

More Mech Attack and Panzer 8 Gaming

Towards the end of last month, the club gathered again to play Mech Attack and Panzer 8, two rulesets we’ve been enjoying recently for 10mm scale sci-fi mass combat games. We had played these games two weeks prior, but we decided to give them one more evening of play before jumping into our winter post-apocalyptic ... Read more
