Zentraedi Control Zone

I played a lot of Robotech RPG back in the late 80s.  Most of our adventures happened in a place called the Zentraedi control zone, an area in South America where over 300,00+ Zentraedi who survived the epic battle with between Dolza's armada and the UEDF/Breetai fleet have carved out their own warlord kingdoms with aims to conquer Earths inhabitants.

It was also the location of Khyron's base for a number of years.

 The jungle quickly recovered from the devastating bombardment given by Dolza's fleet so the land is a combination of Jungle and parched desert, littered with the wreckage of Zentraedi cruisers and mecha.  Sounds like a fun place to do battle.

Inspired by this idea, I decided to begin work on some mecha rubble piles since I have loads of spare battle pods.

They are mounted on 1/8" MDF that I shaped with a sander, plastic card, broken sprew, Z scale cars and rocks.

  I have a few more to make, then its off to painting.

Return to Robotech RPG Tactics

It has been over a year since I last played Robotech RPG Tactics.  Why?  Well there is the whole Wave 2 debacle, my other games (20mm WW3, and Bolt Action) and parenthood soaking up most of my time.  The SDF-1 table has not moved past the concept phase and probably won't for awhile. 

That aside, my interest has grown again.  This week I give you a revised Quick Reference (new blast rules) with the basic units from Wave 1 included in two addition sheets which you can use to make Zentraedi and UEDF quick reference cards.  Just click the link below.

 What next?  Well I am going to finish Jack Archer's Wolf Squadron and maybe a 'Mars Base Revisited' Campaign where the UEDF sends a mission to reclaim Mars from Zentraedi bandits.

Bon Appetite!
