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.





     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!

     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!
