With the recent news and developments on the Kickstarter and the recent events new of RRT has probably spread much further than PB has done with any advertising to date. We have had a large influx of new members in the last few days.

For those wanting to see a longer term future and constant support for a Robotech game I would invite you to come here.


I originally started the RTU FB page thinking that I'd have 30 or 40 members who would play RRT and support each other. Avoiding digs at the reasons this has failed I also take pride in the fact that we have over 2500 members.

Loving RRT but not wanting to support PB I started an alternate rules system that I've called Nodal Wars.

Here is my description

Nodal Wars: Skirmish is a primarily 6mm wargame loosely based on many of the Anime cartoons from the mid 1980's. The game takes care to allow players the flexibility to not only play games that are representative of what they had seen on TV and also in movies, but also open enough that they can adapt units from other genres and be able to mix and match forces and let the imagination run wild. Meant to be played with somewhere between 10 and 20 units per player it can easily be scaled up for larger battles.

The rules are based on an alternating activation system. Players will place their forces into squads and alternate with each other. Players will be able to choose how and when to maneuver their forces in order to try to outmaneuver and outperform each other. Players can try to pull each other out of positions where they can finish them off and obtain a win.

The rules are designed in such a way as to allow players to minimize the need to reference the book and any tables within. You may also wish to look into Tactics, a tactical scale version of this ruleset designed to be played with roughly 2-3x the number of figures at a time.

Please join us and help me build a set of rules that we can all use and enjoy and that will allow us to use anything we have and wish to use on our painting desks or in our mini storage boxes.
