Below is a collection of photos of when we were testing the Earth Federations Magellan class Battleship as well as the updated Stellar Warship rules for MechaStellar VER 8.7 focusing on the Captain’s Orders section. Below is a very brief battlereport as well.
You can read the previous two Magellan battleship reports here. Game 1 and Game 2.
We begin with a Magellan with a skilled captain bringing the Blue Destiny unit 3 along with several GM Command Space types. Against them are the same Zeon forces as the previous game, two Musais, a Gelgoog, 3 Rick Doms, a Zaku II Commander and several Zaku IIs.
You can play MechaStellar with figures and model kits big and small. For players who prefer to use larger scale figures and models for Gundam and various other Mecha series you will also want to use larger terrain. In this post we’ll look at N Scale buildings and a few different scales of Gundam figures.
Below is a collection of photos of when we were testing the Earth Federations Magellan class Battleship as well as the updated Stellar Warship rules for MechaStellar VER 8 focusing on the Captain’s Orders section. Below is a very brief battlereport as well. You can find the first Magellan battle here and the third one here.
We begin with a Magellan with a Skilled Captain and two Salamis cruisers in its strike group each carrying a Guncannon and two GMs while a brand new GM Sniper Custom is aboard the Magellan. They are striking at the Zeon fortress A Baoa Qu and this sector is fielding two Musai cruisers (one with a skilled Captain), a Gelgoog, three Doms, a Zaku Commander and 5x Zaku IIs.
Here are some additional snapshots of what the VER 9 Layout will look like for Getter Robo and GaoGaiGar along with some comparison photos of the old and new. Overall for grunt units it continues to look a lot cleaner.
Below is a collection of photos of when we were testing the Earth Federations Magellan class Battleship as well as the updated Stellar Warship rules for MechaStellar VER 8. Below is a very brief battle report as well. There’s also a short battle report for a Guncannon team and one with the Blue Destiny 3.
We begin with 4 GMs and a GM Cannon onboard a Magellan who must quickly sortie to defend against a pair of Musais each with a full complement of Zaku IIs onboard. Outnumbered 2:1 things are looking grim for the Federation.
After updating the photos on the Mazinger Z miniatures pages we’ve also updated photos for the Getter Robo miniatures. Above shows the different sizes of Shin Getter Robo and below shows some example figures you can use to represent Mechasaurus on the tabletop.
Here’s a link to our current social media pages. We setup our Facebook page last week, I haven’t used Facebook in about 10 years so it’s very different from what I remember, let me know if there are any issues with the page.
For this month’s update we are up finishing up the majority of the G Gundam cast with fighters from the tournament finals including Zeus, Viking, Cobra, Mandala, Matador, Zebra, Jester, Mermaid, Nether, Skull, Asura and Nobel Gundam. Based on a player request we also added in the Zeong and Elmeth this month.
VER 9 is around the corner. This update is focused on Super Robots and Kaiju, who will no longer be using the Power stat as a budget for their weapons, instead they will function just like a Mobile Suit. You view the draft core rules for VER 9 and the unit profiles for Super Robots and Kaiju here: https://mechastellar.com/ver9-drafts/
If you play any games with the VER 9 Draft Profiles please be sure to fill out the After Action Battle Report now on Google Forms. We use this data when it comes to balancing units, adjusting rules, and it’s helpful to know what your favorite units are. Here’s the link: https://forms.gle/PJn5c66JoyJRFtTKA
In addition to updating the core rules for MechaStellar and the Super Robot / Kaiju gameplay in VER 9 we have also been working on an update to the Mecha Unit Profiles based on player feedback. Here are two examples from a draft VER 9 profile. Our goal is to update the profiles by either late May or late June depending on how much feedback we get.
