Very nice! I think 10mm and 15mm are the best scales for sci-fi if you want to get big tanks and robots onto the table and still have nicely detailed infantry.

Great stuff.

Where do the models come from.  Self 3D printed?

Has anyone here tried Horizon Wars? That seems like a simple, solid set of rules for this sort of combined arms game.

I like the idea of using the Starfighter rules for mech combat.  That works much better than Galactic Heroes due to the rules for multiple weapons, hard points, and so forth.  The movement mechanics also seem to replicate the feel of a big stompy robot as well.

Will you allow infantry to use more freeform movement?  It might be interesting, and help give them a more distinct flavor in the game.
On time, on target, or the next one's free

I mentioned this one the FB page, but I have been "building" the mechs using Starfighter rules. I'm messing with some truly Battletech type missile rules they still stay FfoL. On the subject of infantry,I've been trying it 2 ways. In Bigger Battles as a 5-6 stand unit, or used them like fighters in the Fleet scale Starfighters rules. It's all a matter of how you wan to portray them.

Lovely photo of the Thunderbolt, tank and infantry!  :-*

When these folks hit the battlefield it will ooze Battletech!

Once again... great project!

Group shot with the Marauder added. Lore says no one knows how to manufacture Marauder armor anymore so Marauders tend to have a pieced together look. I'm using DP( Gears as the armored up battlesuits of the infantry.
