For this battle we set up a SRW style game where universes collide with Amuro, Koji and Ryoma in the Gundam, Mazinger Z and Getter Robo on one side and on the other we have Big O and some of Zeon’s Aces including Char’s Gelgoog, Mikhail’s Kampfer and two of the Black Tri-Stars. (The 3rd Tri-Star was killed by Amuro in a previous battle and this was a follow-up grudge match). Rounding out the roster we have a Zaku I sniper and a Zaku II with a magella top cannon versus Kai’s Guncannon providing long range support for each player.
For the narrative on this battle the player’s decide that Zeon had hired Roger Smith under false pretenses informing him that Getter and Mazinger were possessed robots holding memories of the past and rampaging through the area. The player’s remark that after the battle and Roger discovers the ruse he would most likely switch sides.
For the battlefield we are still using some Greco-Roman style ruins that we used previously in a few Mazinger Z match-ups. Below the break will be the round by round battle report as well as a post-mortem on the mecha tactics employed.
Here’s the third game in our final round of testing for the Mazinger Z units, we of coursed wanted to finish with a Getter Robo teamup so we included the Getter team plus a beefy Mechasaurus. The models used are the Gundam 1/300 S.O.G. line, Mazinger Gashapon, Getter Robo KT figure, and the Mechasaurus is being represented by the Machine Saurer gashapon. You can read more about figures here for Gundam, Mazinger and Getter. Previous game can be found here.
Below the break will be a short battle report and photos of the game along with a post mortem discussing the mecha tactics employed for the Mobile Suits, Mazinger, Getter, and the Kaiju.
Below are a pair of battle reports we put together while doing final testing of the Mazinger Z units released in September. The models used are the Gundam 1/300 S.O.G. line and the Mazinger Z gashapon line. You can read more about model sizes in these two posts.
Below the break you’ll see the battle report as well as a post mortem on the mecha tactics used for the Mobile Suits from Gundam, Mazinger and the Kikaiju.
Here’s a short battle report on using GP03 by itself against a portion of the Delaz fleet. This Gundam tabletop tactics game involved GP03 Dendrobium, three Musai class cruisers, 9 Zaku IIs, and 3 Rick Dom IIs.
One of our players mentioned having issues running GP03 against large numbers of units so we opted to use the Zaku II over the F2 since they’re a cheaper unit and we wanted to try and overwhelm GP03.
The models used are the Gundam 1/400 collection for the Zaku II and Rick Dom II, the 1/1200 Gunpla kit for two Musai and the MSiA Peer Gynt for the larger more detailed cruiser and GP03 Dendrobium. You can read more about miniatures for Gundam and Stellar Warships in these posts.
Below the break will be a more photos and a battle report that tracks Momentum and damage to GP03 Dendrobium as well as a post mortem discussing the Gundam tactics and misplays.
Recently a player asked about a matchup between Big O and Sachiel. One piece of advice I had was to field more units using the mass produced Bigs we see in flashbacks which would be much cheaper than Ace Pilot. The minis used are the Kotobukiya one coin figures for Big O and the Seika figures for Evangelion.
For this matchup we are using a draft version of the Flashback Big O and Big Duo to try and take down Sachiel. Hopefully we have better luck than last match. Below is a battle report and the mecha tactics employed.
Continuing off of our previous two games we decided to do a teamup match using an Evangelion along with the mass produced Bigs for the Megadeus Army, with 1200pts that would mean facing off against Israfel or Zeruel. We went with the most deadly angel. The minis used are the Kotobukiya one coin figures for Big O and the Seika figures for Evangelion.
Below the break you’ll see a battle report and the mecha tactics of the game.
A MechaStellar player recently asked about a Big O and Sachiel matchup. We haven’t had these two face off against each other yet so we decided to set up a game and see who could come out on top. The minis used are the Kotobukiya one coin figures for Big O and the Seika figures for Evangelion.
Below the break you’ll see a battle report and some of the mecha tactics we employed.
This is one of our more memorable Gundam Tactics games using the Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory Units right around the time they were released. The models used are the Gundam 1/400 line of minis.
In this matchup the Federation player fielded GP01, GM Customs and GM Cannon II and some support GMs while the Zeon player fielded Johnny Ridden’s Gelgoog and Ramba Ral’s Gouf, several Doms, and a rare Gouf Flight Test Type from MSV. The game type was “Secure the Objective” which is a 40k style Take and Hold scenario. Below is a short battle report:
Here are some photos of our demo games we had at our local FLGS in April that were run side by side. We also have some brief battle reports to go along with them. We had a blast using the MechaStellar ruleset for a Gundam tabletop game.
Hi folks, here are a few photos and some brief battle reports for some demo games we got in during March at our FLGS. Seen above we had one side set up for the 08th MS Team and the other for Gundam Wing. We had a blast using the MechaStellar ruleset for a Gundam tabletop game.
