I love mechas a lot.
But I rarely play any games with them, usually due to my percived lack of good rules to play with. So when I did a search recently Mech Attack popped up more than a few times, and almost always with nothing but good things being mentioned, so I thought it was high time to play more with some big stompy robots!
The red team.
And the blue team.
I've been thinking that they might become houses of their own, maybe house Cerulean and house Scarlet or something like that. I like the Battletech fluff and such, so I might end up borrowing from it quite a lot.
Wierd angle shot, I'll try not to make any more of these!
The giants slowly move to engage..
The Blue medium (I really need to come up with some names for these guys!) gets the first hits in, knocking of some armor from red medium, and destroying some heatsinks. Ouch
The blue mech takes 2 critical hits, the damage overloading the system and the mech is out of the fight!
They both took quite a savage beating, none of them had more than a handful of armor blocks left on the grid by the time the red mech managed a lucky hit that blew the power core of his opponent.
It was lots of fun, but I realize that I'll probably re-design the mechs a bit for the next fight and see if I can't manage to paint up four more units, so I'll have a full lance per side!
I should have another game of Laserstorm and Clarkes 3rd adventure up in a few days, along with the buildings that I started making for these guys.
Til next time!
