Amazing, I never heard of this but it looks cool.
Do you have trouble finding miniatures for it?
I started in 2nd and really enjoyed it. I had fun with 3rd, but didn’t like 4th and that is when I departed from 40K.
Funny that you mention it, for Father’s Day my wife gave me Giga-Robo!
I’ve been enjoying it so far! They plan on making a Kaiju version in the future that will integrate with it.
I know there is also this, which is getting a positive reception:
All I see are pictures of a real ship.
Where is the painted model?
You need an adult language warning!
This looks absolutely fantastic!
All the elements have come together nicely to create an atmospheric table and game.
I actually bought Pulp Alley specifically for Dredd, because it is designed for action-adventure type settings that focus on characters. The game typically has players focusing on completing objectives (called Plot Points) rather than just beating on each other.
Parts of the table can be designated as perilous, meaning models have to pass tests to navigate them. Maybe an angry old lady swinging a bag with a brick in it, or an entire avenue being used by Boing enthusiasts, local City Def practicing or radioactive dust. Really, it is up to your imagination.
I think it is worth checking out.
One day I’ll have time to get back to my Dredd collection.
I love Greek mythology stuff so this was cool to see and it looked like fun.
This past Autumn I got an all-in pledge for Mythic Battles: Pantheon. It was expensive but it comes with a lot of miniatures (they are very nice). The game itself is a lot of fun, it’s a miniatures skirmish game that does away with terrain building – you play on boards.
Great to see other mythology gaming out there!18/03/2020 at 17:01 in reply to: Suitable Rules For Battlestar Galactica Dogfights? #133397
The Ares game Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles is very good at small numbers dogfighting. That’s it’s focus (each player controls 1-2 fighters).
The models out so far are from the new series, but they are going producing old series fighters, too.
The quality of the models is very high and prepainted well, with details such as pilot names printed to scale (so you need a magnifier to read them they are so tiny).
The rules are slightly more complex than Wings of War (same system), but they have a nice compromise of giving vector-style feel without needing a calculator.
Of course you’ll need
Any real life location is perfect for Fairy Meat.
Sometimes I find myself in a badly designed scenario where one side clearly has no chance to win. It is often accompanied by “real war isn’t balanced or fair.”
Sure, but when playing a game, players should feel engaged and have fun.
As Ruarigh wrote, an asymmetric scenario should still have victory conditions defined for each side to claim a victory in the game, even if none would exist in a real life counterpart.
I think I’ll give a different box a shot and see how they compare.
My local shop got a bunch of the sets in stock, and he remembered I used to special order the previous line.
I picked up the Fatties and was disappointed in their size compared to the old ones (which I managed to hunt down ten of after the line was discontinued).
How do the other models compare in size? I want to supplement my collection, rather than replace it. Otherwise, I’ll be completely broke!
They do cost more and, from comparisons I’ve seen, they are smaller. But they are beautifully detailed and they aren’t being produced by PB.
I may buy some just to check them out. I do hope they expand the line to at least all of the combat mecha, if not also Zentraedi infantry and Cat’s Eye, etc.
Kids Logic has been producing a new line of miniatures that has me thinking about this again.
That’s a nice way to organize them.
I bought one of the mdf organizers and I think it is disappointing.
You can print up a bunch of “card backs” then cut them out and put them in sleeves with any old set of playing cards.
I never realized how big German tanks were.
This is a great start
That’s an interesting looking base.
Thanks for that. Looks like a great product.
You might be able to buy an inexpensive fleece blanket with a pattern that resembles what you are looking for, to cut down on the amount of work.
Beautiful work on these, Helios and the Dragon of Thebes. Great game, too.
With a birth of a child two years ago and a new job taking 12 hours of my day for four days a week, I’ve pretty much lost all my time to build and paint. I miss it.
I just cleaned off my desk and I’m hoping to steal an hour this weekend to apply some shaky handed brush strokes to something. 😀
If you are looking for a complete package (rules, miniatures, terrain), then check out Core Space.
Looks great and looking forward to this.
What is different in the new edition? Will the old supplements still be needed?
I saw this and immediately recognized what was used for the base:
Great paintjob, perfect to get slaughtered by Vader.
ACTA was based on BFG.
Babylon 5 Wars was sort of a Star Fleet Battles light. The game was considered canon at some point.
I think the fleet scale stuff from Agents of Gaming will be your better bet.
The new Battlestar Galactica game from Ares would make nice rules for B5 fighter combat.

I did these a few months back, but forgot about posting them.
You could do a low model count, skirmish game on 2×2 with 28mm. I think 15mm would be better for that size, though.
I just preordered the Super Star Destroyer for Armada from my flgs and it is about 2 feet long. Not sure where that is going…
That’s one big walker…
