Skull One





And I could not resist taking this picture while I was at it with the two.
Well there you have the UEDF side of Robotech Tactics. next post we will follow into the Zentraedi Empire and take a look at all those models (Hopefully sooner rather than later). Until next time, keep painting!

Robotech Tactics pt4 - UEDF Heroes 1

Hey there, its been a while but welcome back!

Last we left off with some of the UEDF Destroids (way back if you remember), and this week we continue the Robotech Tactics commission with two of the heroes, a power couple of Max and Mira Sterling. Lets get started!

Max Sterling









Mira Sterling






Again, colors match the clients choice and the bases (along with the air effect) were left intentionally grey for a neutral color choice. The next post will continue with our other power couple of Skull One and Rick Hunter, followed by the Zentraedi Empire!

See you then.

Robotech Tactics pt3 - UEDF Destroids

Welcome back! This post we continue our look into the Robotech Tactics game from Palladium Books. Again a commission piece with the colors picked by the client, but such a fun long project.


     This week is more UDEF models, the Destroids! Destroids are the bigger mecha from the previous Brownies (more commonly know as Veritechs). They are bigger, pack more of a punch, and only come in one form as opposed from the Veritechs. Although there are a variety of Destroids and we will look at them here.

Defender





Phalanx








Spartan





Tomahawk




     Since the commission was a large one, I was able to get two models of each type for a bit more variety. Next we move onto the heroes, the named characters of the UEDF!

Robotech Tactics pt2 - UEDF Brownies & Ben Dixon

     Hello there- its been one crazy month to get in this post, but we continue our look into the Robotech Tactics miniatures starting with the good guys, The UEDF Brownies!

As the backbone of the UEDF army there are a good handful of these models, As per the client made a few of these and used some of the other models in the box as the named heroes, but we will get to them later. The Veritechs come in 3 different modes: The fighter, guardian, and battroid. Below we will see a close up one of the models in each mode, and then group shots. Enjoy!

Fighter mode




 Guardian mode





 Group shots




     Somehow I have lost the Battroid mode pics, but you can see them in the group shots above. As with most in this large commission, the client wanted colors matching the Robotech universe, going off colors that came in the rulebook. The anime series is a great epic space opera and if you haven't seen it before, you should definitely check it out!


Ben Dixon

And here is a group shot of Ben Dixon, one of the named characters. Ben, as well as the other named characters, follow the same build with their different modes. The most notable difference is their head and color scheme. The other named characters will follow after the UEDF Destructoid models.

I hope you enjoyed this viewing, until next time!
