a Kickstarter project for a Robotech miniatures game. Robotech, of course, is a franchise based on several anime (including Macross) that helped launch the giant stompy robot craze in the United States and was one of the inspirations for the Battletech franchise.
Palladium Books is doing the Robotech RPG Tactics game--a set of miniatures rules that comes with a whole bunch of 1/285 scale plastic mecha models. That's the same scale (and some of the same designs) used for the Battletech game!
While the Robotech RPG Tactics game looks interesting, I'm also thinking about all the other rules you could use these models for. In addition to Battletech, there's Dirtside, Future War Commander, and 5150: Star Army (especially if I ever get around to writing some company-level armor rules for that game).
Go check out the various pledge levels--the game's a little costly,
but you get a whole lotta minis for your money. And if the price is too steep, you can always get some friends to chip in and then split up the goodies. Better hurry though,
the funding campaign ends on May 20--just one week left!
