Dear readers, just a short message to give a heads-up to any fans of the classic 80ies Robotech series. I'm starting a collection in conjuncture with the release of the Robotech RPG Tactics 6mm miniatures game from Palladium.
A "Veritech Valkyrie" fighter defending Earth.
For anyone who grew up in the 80ies, like yours truly, Robotech represented something completely new. This show WAS my Saturday and Sunday mornings, as it was lovingly broadcasted to Denmark via SKY-TV and the DJ-Kat Show from the UK. I was dutifully up at 07.00 am awaiting the inferno of Mechas fighting of aliens in the struggle for domination over our planet.
Some of the Miniatures for the game.
Palladium have really done a nice job on these!
Of course getting this game and painting up these minis is just one big cool trip down a nostalgic memory lane, but I would also highlight the very high quality of the minis produced by Palladium. They've done a great job, and from what I've painted so far, I've really had a great experience.

I will not be posting this collection on the Black Powder Games history blog, as I like to keep a tight format in respect for my followers. So, if you're like me, and have a sore spot for cool Mecha, then drop over to my second blog and list up as follower.
