Stellar Warship Playtest Photos – Pegasus Class Assault Carrier

These tests were focused on the Pegasus class of warships with the most notable being Mobile Suit Gundam’s White Base from the One Year War. The model featured here is the Albion from 0083 Stardust Memory. They are a very formidable ship but as you can see from the last few photos even they can be brought down by a concerted effort from Zakus, Rick Doms and Musai class cruisers.

MechaStellar Battle Report – GP03 Dendrobium vs The Delaz Fleet

GP03 Dendrobium vs The Delaz Fleet

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.
