Mech Attack is Everything An Old School Gamer Could Want

19 Comments

Mech Attack is an old style PDF game that uses all kinds of big scale minis from a multitude of games including Dust 1947, old battle mechs, and Bolt Action. We stumbled across this great game while roaming these halls and it caught our eye with all of the carnage happening at this table.

The Mech Attack Terrain Pack has rules for destroying buildings. We’ve had destroyable objective structures in previous convention games but we streamlined things for this years game and didn’t include damaging buildings.

Sounds like out may be a game rules set that you can fit just about any models that fit the genera. I’m sure they will respond with a like or something. Looks like fun

As you guessed, it’s not a game that’s attached to any particular setting. The game provides you with some basic mech profiles and you can customize them at will. Folks on the forums have put up stats of various builds.

I really like the idea of a game in which models from any company can be used.

I need a battletech / mechwarrior game with nice looking models. Capellan Confederation for the win!

The rules we used are Mech Attack, available at Wargames Vault- http://www.wargamevault.com/product/79303/Armor-Grid-Mech-Attack
It comes with paper minis you can print out, but this is how we play it.

You can see more of the games we play on our blog-

Hey Folks,
Karl here from Chicago Skirmish Wargames (CSW), the Chicago club that put on the game above. “Mech Attack!” is published by Armorgrid Games (no connection to CSW) and is available for download on Wargames Vault. I describe it to folks as a fast-playing game that has a Battletech’ish “feel” but has 1/10th the rules and plays in 1/4th the time. It is very flexible and has a nice easy unit creation mechanic for statting up your own mechs, vehicles and infantry. Beta flyer rules are up at the companies forum

Written as a 15mm game (even comes with files for printable 2.5 dimension paper units) it works great as-written for 6, 10 and 15mm. We’ve been playing it for several years with 10mm minis but for Adepticon we double the ranges and break out the 28mm setup you see above.

Feel free to ask any questions about the rules or our game and I’d be happy to answer what I can.
