Mechanicus Factory 2020

The idea for this game has been kicking about for literally years, but this year it looks like it's actually going to happen. Rules are nearly settled, there's been a small test game and models are being painted.

Rival Mechanicus factions will meet in a trial-by-combat to decide whose interpretation of the STC is correct. Influenced by the board game Robo Rally, there will be conveyor belts, bottomless shafts, laser beams, enormous rotating saw blades, etc. etc. with a skirmish game taking place on top.

Each faction can capture consoles to take control of a section of the factory, or some of the 'house' robots, with the ultimate goal being to get control of the central console and upload your version of the STC.

I'm aiming for about 6 players with a faction of ten each. An options list will be published in due course, but if you are looking to get building, each faction will consist of something like:
- 1 Tech-priest leader
- 1 Robot
- 1 Specialist (space marine, heavy weapon, arco-flagellant etc)
- 5 Followers
- 2 Servitors - mainly to operate machinery, very limited combat ability

Don't worry about Oldhammer purity. Obviously classic tech-priests are welcome, but I'm planning a mish-mash of robed cultists, barbarians converted to servitors with cyborg bits, Ramshackle Games's robed gangers, new GW Skitarii, 2nd edition Warzone plastics, etc. etc. Let your imagination go. Even better if you can give them a specific theme or unusual colour scheme.

Oh yeah! Yes please. I am doing a big game with Harry and Chris but should be able to step away for a couple of hours.

Re: Mechanicus Factory 2020

Probably be more like 4 hours to be honest, but you would be very welcome. I'm aiming for Saturday afternoon or evening slot.

I’ve booked a table for this at 1.30pm on the Saturday. Had some expressions of interest but there probably will be spaces if you want to join in. Hopefully BOYL will still go ahead in August but if not then will try to reschedule this for any replacement event.

Cool. I'm very up for this. I've booked the game I'm running for the Saturday morning so I hope I've finished in time.

Is this still happening? If so I'd like to join in.
