OK Robotech Fans... Hello and welcome to new faces that are seeing this site for the first time. I hope you have made it here by your own searches or found this site through other means. Also welcome to the D6Generation listeners that have found my blog. (D6G Podcast episode 94) There is much activity going on behind the scenes for Robotech Battles. I am always looking to improve the game as well as trying to get the word out that this is a playable Robotech Tabletop game.. If you enjoy tabletop gaming and you enjoy Robotech. So download the current rules and cardstock minis (found to the right in the download section). I would be happy to hear from you on what you thought of the rules. Tell your gaming buddies that play testers are wanted.

"How do I give you feedback on the rules", You ask!?    Why, "In the new Forums!", of course.
I have set up a forum for people to add their ideas and thoughts for the game as well as a place to give me better feedback to the current rules set. Do not be afraid to add your own recommendations for the game and wish listing is encouraged. The forums are really new and they are going to be improving constantly to give you a place to discuss all things Robotech and Robotech Battles.

I have lots of plans for Robotech Battles in its current format for the First Robotech War. Stay tuned for rules progress, Scenario development, The second and third Robotech Wars (Masters and new generation) and Zentraedi Uprisings.. I want to move towards getting a model line set up as well, but there is a big hurdle with licensing that I'm working on to get this game properly developed. 

Register now and Stay Tuned and in the meantime play a game or two..

Happy Holidays from Robotech Battles

Robotech Christmas - thanks to EastCoastCanuck for the pic

I would like to wish everyone Happy and Healthy Holidays.
I know that life can be tough at times.You never get enough time to truly do the things you want to do in life. But during this holiday season, please take a moment to breath.. Stop what your doing, look up from whatever your pursuing in life and look at the world around you. Look at the things that are important in life..
Family for me is the biggest thing in my life.. I do the things I need to do to support my family. I work too much, never get enough sleep and try to spend quality time with my kids.. I do this because I care. I love my family with all my heart. I would do just about anything for the people I care about. I hope you do too.
The other people that are in my life (friends, co-workers, acquaintances and other family members) also mean alot to me. These are the people you see everyday. They can be what make your "everyday" good or bad.. So today and during the holidays, wish the people in your life a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays or whatever colorful phrasing you want to use. But can you do something else for me too.. Try to actually mean it. Add some life to your greetings and salutations.. Give a smile to the people around you along with a kind word.
Because it will be worth it, I promise.

Here is to all the people that take the time to stop by and read this. May you have the time this year to finish that project you wanted to do. May you have the time to do the things that make you happy, whether it be Hobbying, Gaming, Painting, reading or whatever. Also I hope you stop by here again to find out what going on on my Blog and Robotech Battles... There is much more to come, I promise.
Also if you get the chance download the rules for a read through and possibly a quick game, I would appreciate it.

Version 1.4 download

Here is the link for the files:
Robotech Battles 1.4 pages 1-31

Robotech Battles 1.4 pages 32-46



VERSION 1.4 is HERE!!!

Sorry For the delay,
Go to the Download Link and Check out the new rules..
Please note that the link still says 1.3. I currently cannot update the text due to errors.
The new files are there and they are easier to download (Only 2 files)
Also all the Mecha that will be in the initail release are available as cardstok minis. You can play every mecha thats there are rules for.

Please note that the rules can be used for almost any scale miniatures or toys that you have currently have too. If you are using 1:100 scale or larger models I would suggest doubling all measurements that are in the rules. So break out the 1:72 mecha and old Robotech toys you have laying about and start gaming.

I will be playing the new rules this weekend and I will be taking pics of the game.. I'll keep you posted.

I would appreciate Some feedback on the dowload site and the rules themselves..
You can email me direct at :

Blogger Issues

Well It seems that If I try to change any of the layout of my Blog I get an Error.. It seems as though EVERYONE on this network is getting the error.. I hope it gets fixed soon.

I hope to have good news. I'm doing some investigative work on licensing and legal work so I'll be posting more information as I get it.. Sorry for being so general, but As soon as I can get my head above water with work and Christmas shopping/decorating I'll be posting more.
Coming up:
Look for
-demo results
-pics of my demo table

-release 1.4

Also all the paper figs slated for the initial release are available to download at the right side of the blog in the download section.
Thanks for checking things out.
Interesting things are developing.
