KAMUT Posted April 13, 2004 Share Posted April 13, 2004 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 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
