Robotech RPG Tactics - on its way in the post

Robotech RPG Tactics by Palladium.

This marks the first entry in series of blog posts documenting my growing collection of wargaming miniatures, scale models and AAR all devoted to the fantastic universe of Robotech.

Growing up as a kid in the 80ies Saturday and Sunday mornings meant only one thing – SKY TV and the notorious DJ Cat Show. While He-Man and G.I Joe were great shows, I was drawn to the wonderful Mecha of Robotech. 

Some of the excellent miniatures in the Robotech RPG Tactics game.

Having painted and collected historical miniatures for almost 25 years (my blog on historical miniatures), my heart skipped a beat when Palladium finally launched their Robotech RPG Tactics last year.

A walkthrough of the RPG Tactics rules.

I’ve finally bought the basic game box, which will give me the much acclaimed RPG Tactics rules, two large forces two start off my collection with, plus some nice decals for the models, which as I understand it only can be found in this box. 

Robotech Episode 1.
All 85 episodes available through Youtube.

While waiting for the box to arrive I’ve started working my way through the 85 episodes of Robotech, all available on Youtube. Its cool nostalgia to re-connect to ones childhood and at the same time realizing how amazing and innovative the show was when it first came out in 1985.
