Today Palladium Books announced via the Robotech RPG Tactics Facebook page that there will not be a change in scale to 15mm, despite the big poll / announcement that was made via their Kickstarter page.
I know there has been a lot of speculation for the scale to change from its current 6mm (1/285) scale to a larger scale. Many thought by making the miniatures somewhat larger, that they might be produced differently or easier to put together. Recently Warren and Justin had spent part of a Weekender XLBS speaking in length about this game and some of the concerns regarding the sprues in the base game.
From their point of view the sprues were not too difficult to assemble, and I know others may disagree, with that there was rumblings of a rework of the sprues and an increase in scale. What I can say is when you can spend a little time with the current ones you can assemble some nice looking miniatures.
With GenCon right around the corner, it will be interesting to see what else is coming down the pipeline. We will see if we can grab a quick word with the guys from Palladium Books. What ever the case, I would love to see this game develop and grow, it is a cool universe and I grew up with the Macross series.
What are your thoughts on the current scale of Robotech RPG Tactics?
