All depends on what aesthetic you prefer, really…

I agree with the comment that it all depends on your needs. Are you looking for a display model or scenic display or for gaming. Do you want something with a lot of parts or sturdy. Different companies mere different needs.

Recent Battletech sculpts.



If MWO did a legal line of miniatures those would be the best.

I really like the CAV models. The arms and legs are often separate pieces, but are (in my experience) interchangeable between models, so you can create custom models fairly easily.

Nitto/Doyusha : Combat Armour Dougram

BattleDroids the way it was meant to be played =^,^=

Too right! I've put some time into my BT minis, but I am SERIOUSLY considering dumping all mine, and going with these new ones.

Cool, MiniMo!

I enjoyed the Starsiege ones. Pity the line and then company folded.

Cool and not stupidly priced! The poses look very static though, or can you do more with them?

Personally I go for Bandai's 1:100th Macross mech's.

i like the cav miniatures as well

The Nitto models (2 of which were packed in the original Battledroids game) are slightly posable. These are early generation mecha kits and small (by mecha model standards) – about 3" tall. Pivots at foot, knee, hip, and shoulder.

I have a nice stash collected over the ages. Adding this collection box gave a nice boost to the gang.

Dream Pod 9, I still have a soft spot for the old RAFM 1:87 scale ones.

My wife makes the best mecha. Add a little brown sugar and green chilies and you got good mecha.
