Pretty sure that Galahad found some Robogear stuff and posted it here.

I do apologise if this isn't Robogear!



EDIT: is this just known as Robogear when it's marketed by Airfix/in Britain? That might explain things...

Axis and Allies Minis is a pretty good system. The minis are aproximately 15mm (like FOW), prepainted and the battlescape is 2D hex based (not bad either). My gamer buddies and I have developed a 3D version using 15mm scale terrain (FOW) and it works pretty well ( it is always evolving). As we are all GW 40K junkies this is our secondary system. It's great for a quick game when you don't want to drag out all the big stuff. We didn't want another system that you had to assemble and paint although you can paint the minis if you want to.

If your plan seems to be working...something's wrong

Most of my gaming group have just picked the gw system we were happiest with and refused to evolve with the gw marketing team, aided by the fact that old editions are cheaper on ebay and i've still got all the rules, templates,psychic cards and card markers plus the strategy cards etc. At the end of the day a space marine is still a spacemarine whatever edition you play.We figured that when we started we enjoyed the hobby and its only after a few editions of changes that had changed so now we've all gone retro and its fun again

Don't take me as a GW fanboy or anything like that. But you might want to look at the specialist games. Some are somewhat expensive, like BFG, however necromunda only requires a single purchase for friendly games. That and the models are great.

I too have started warmachine, however it's never really stuck with me...

Well, I have yet to get a Flames of War rulebook (haven't a clue where to find it), but I plan to use my quadrillion or so 1:72 (they are about 15mm, I think) scale figures as FOW figs.

there is a website called griffon miniatures that does an online magazine called harbinger that shows many different games systems but its down getting updated at the moment if you can get the downloaded magazine its a good insight into many other gaming systems and also gives them support such as advertising the models that you rarely see and scenarios that give you a good insight as to how the other systems work. if i can get into the sight i will let you know its back up. if nothing else its a good read.

Recently gotten into AT-43, yes i know its prepainted but for those who have little time or who don't like (or can't) paint its a good idea. I like it because the rules are easy to learn but still lend themselves to challenging & enjoyable games, the minis aren't bad though i have touched up one or two & added/altered their bases, where i live its reasonably priced & gaining in popularity, it creates a different style of gameplay & thats what i find refreshing about it. If you have yet to try it then i'd recommended it heartily.

Battletech is pretty fun, but complicated. I know alot of people that play CAV as well.
