Judging from the wiki info, I don't see why you can't stat up something of this nature...though to be honest, it may not be a direct conversion without some tinkering/customizing of the rules for your game. If you want a non-tinker version, you should be able to get pretty close.

I was refering to possibility of the surface to space weapons. The Dynames in one episode shot at a spaceship in orbit around the Earth. Would it be possible to have something like that? You would be able to sort of do counterbattery on ortillery.
Well, somebody's shootin' somebody! Let's go find us a war.

Okay...gotchya.

That's a bit beyond the game scale for a mech or tank unit. There is something in the works emplacement-wise however...but I'm not gonna do more than mention that. ;)

However, if you're already customizing the game for your setting, nothing says you can't add something in along the lines of a BIG GUN or ARTILLERY. Maybe us a design range of 10 or such even.

You're the second person to be tempting me with "GODZILLA" rules...(of course Godzilla rules...how can he NOT!?!) :twisted:

Here you go! This is just a shortlist, but here's a list of Combat Walker minis that would be perfect for Wardogs.

28mm:
AT-43
Urban War

15mm:
Gear Krieg

10mm:
CAV
Heavy Gear
Mechwarrior: Age of Destruction
6mm:
Battletech
Rogue Legion
Dirt Side II and here
Future Wars (see the middle of the page DF-W01/ DFW02)
Mecha Carnage
Brigade Models Cronus Mechs(doesn't appear to be available for sale any more)
Dark Realm
Heavy Gear Fleet Scale
Jovian Chronicles
Meck Wars
Gauntlet Mecha (Only one model but it is rather neat looking)

I know I probably missed some stuff, but I figured you'd get a kick out of it. especially if you've ever wanted to build your own massive mech force.

The first person in question being me...

:D

Ya know, if you can reasonably use WARDOGS for it, rather than trying to adapt something else or writing a new rule set, I'd be more than happy to start working on that again....

:D

Of course, I'd rather finish the OTHER thing we're working on first - THEN we can do WARDOGS: KAIJU!

:D

I'd propose that any adaptation that involves Kaiju (ie Giant Monsters and Robos) be a new setting along the lines of "The Grumm Wars" for Starmada.....
