I will be holding demos of Robotech Battles on Friday and Saturday afternoon of the Con.
I want to show you this great game..
here is the write up on the Mechanicon's website:
Welcome to the Tabletop Miniatures Skirmish Game based on Robotech from the Japanese version of the Anime Series Macross. Robotech Battles is a 3D Tabletop Skirmish Game where you can either be human or the alien Zentradi. You are the pilot in control of Devastating Transformable Mecha battling for the earth’s survival, or the alien commander in control of the hordes of giant aliens bent on domination. Aerial Dogfights, missile trails filling the sky, and Mecha on Mecha combat give you the player, a taste of the Robotech Universe. Play out your favorite scenes from the series in this skirmish game where the fate of the First Robotech war can be decided on the results of your battles.
A few simple things about the game:
The game is an action/reaction based skirmish game where your pilots have the means of fully using the environment they are in to travel through the landscape (this includes up and down as well).
Missiles are the third player and act independantly once fired and be careful if they miss.
Terrain can be targeted and will blow up if your not careful.
Set-up is fast and gameplay is faster.
