Rules for mecha versus dragons
« on: May 13, 2016, 09:49:13 PM »
I supposed I could just as easily post this query in the fantasy forum, but I'll start here...

I've got some mecha miniatures, and I've got some dragon miniatures. As I'm sure you all agree, now they have to fight.

Does anyone have any recommendations for rules systems that might cover such a scenario, or that are flexible enough to support a bit of modification? I'm imaging for example that the dragons will have different kinds of breath attacks based on their color, and that the mechs will be armed with all sorts of dragon-busting lasers and missiles.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

What about Rogue Planet? Seems to me you could coffe something from there, and it's a great set of rules.

Maybe these rules from Ganesha Games?

Mecha and kaiju: use these rulesets to stomp the city and destroy your opponents. You can play a single monster vs the army, monsters vs robots duels, and all combinations of the above.

Never used them, but I think some other members have.

Only a small test game. They aren't bad, the integration between the special rules for mecha and monsters is a bit clunky but in general you can have a lot of fun!

Swatters from the same company might work too. Not sure if it has mecha rules tho, but it has big nasty biobeasts for sure that the dragons can stand in for.

What about Gruntz, it has options for both mecha and large monsters in the build section.
