Any customizable mech mini games out there?

Postby xelaxela222 » Sat May 26, 2012 7:06 pm

Hey MWG
I just wondered if there were any mech based tabletop games where you customize the mechs similar to armored core or even medabots. I think it'd be a cool concept for a game. I haven't played battletech or heavy gear yet. Battletech because I kind of don't like the figures, and heavy gear because I don't know enough about the game to sink any money into it yet. Thanks MWG
All responses appreciated.

Well if you can get past the looks of the mechs for Battletech, it does have rules for making your mechs from scratch.

Only mech game I've ever played.

Since you guys suggested battletech I have been doing a bit of research. I loved the mechwarrior and mechassault video games, since mechwarrior 3. I am interested in battletech but the game system itself seems kind of dull. is it a fun game to play? I love some of the models, and I am tempted to grab the introductory set but I dont know if I will actually ENJOY playing the game. I'm more worried about my brother :P I can like any game but my brother is a bit more picky and he's all I have to play with. Thanks guys I really appreciate your responses and I am kind of excited to try this game out and get back into painting. I was really good at painting, even got third place at a local contest, but I havent painted it in about a year... anyway thanks again.

The game can be incredibly exciting. I have personally always enjoyed it more than anything GW has ever put out. You can also download MegaMek and play against people online. If you want give the program a download and send me a PM, I'd be happy to act as a test opponent to see if you like the system.
