Russian Mecha


Recommended Posts

I've been fortunate to come across a pair of Russian made mecha for a game called "Astroid". Joe Miller, at the Comic Store, on his return from GAMA, brought back a few of these guys, and gave me a blister to check out.

 

First off, these guys are in plastic but the detail is top notch; they look like a cross between Space Marines and Transformers. (they got heads like Octimus Prime) the data cards (although written in Russian) are baseball card size with a few numbers and an armor hit system, simular to battletech.

 

the difference is, hit location is determined by a 6SD and theres a simple point scale they use. Head can take 2-4 damage, each arm 2-4 damage, legs about 6 damage, depending on the Mecha of course.

 

The stats are written in Russian, but I think I can figure them out too.

 

MAMOHT (Mammoth?)

Ctonmoctb 42 (42 tons?)

 

Ckopoctb = 5 (Cockpit? Piloting?)

3aMNta = 3 (Armor?)

Ctpenb6a = 5/1 (pistol in right hand/ punch?)

Cnna Atakm = 4 (have no clue, maybe targeting or initiative?)

 

 

na3yt4nk (?)

Ctonmoctb 29 (29 tons?)

 

Ckopoctb = 5 (Cockpit? Piloting?)

3aMNta = 2 (Armor?)

Ctpenb6a = 4/3 (pistol in right hand/ punch?)

Cnna Atakm = 2 (have no clue, maybe targeting or initiative?)

 

Anyway, looks interesting. the blister comes with a 6 sided dice. probably plays out simular to CAV using a 6sd instead of a 10sd. possibly moving the mecha individually, as opposed to to sections.

 

Anybody could enlighten me, by all means, now I'm off to find a link

Sounds interesting.

 

Being a Mecha-junkie this kind of thing is always a curiosity for me.

 

BTW -- Sorry I missed you last night. If you're going to be in town next monday, I am planning to be at the shop (around 6:30) and should be able to give you a quick HG demo.

No problem, I'll bring them with me next time so you can check them out, they're not really all that bad, but obviously geared to a younger audience.

 

I have the Serpentine Fire gears on display at the Adventure Guild; that'll give you an idea of their capabilities, but unfortuantely I have no cards for them.

I did this for a Paper Miniatures site I sometimes contribute to.

It's a Russki Mecha with giant AKM-like forearm cannons.

 

The mecha is meant to be cut out, and folded/glued together like a triangular box, giving you a 3d feel to it.

 

Best,

JBR, your an animal bro.

 

You may appreciate these ruski mechs though, kind of right up your alley, being the "Godfather of Mecha" (Must give you your props, bro, you rock)

 

I really have to get a digicam, I wonder if Erion has one.
