Rebel Minis has now released some more of their Viper Mechs onto the webstore for those looking for a 15mm Mech fix. I have to say, these look awesome with a selection of variants to choose from and more coming in January.
The different Viper Mechs can be chosen in a variety of different poses, some standing still whilst others are advancing, and each has different weapon load-outs too.
I really like the idea of taking a few of these mechs, maybe four or five of them to each side and coming up with some Mech on Mech combat rules that would be quick and easy to play.
Set in amongst the wreckage and ruin of a Sci-Fi world, plaster some character and advertising on the side of the mechs, and have them duke it out in a futuristic sports game of mangled metal.
I’m sure that there are some games out there that would work for what I’m looking to do but wouldn’t it be cool to have a game where you could then upgrade and tinker with your pilot’s skills as well as the mechs weapon load-out?
Think Hawken on the tabletop I guess!
