I use to play a LOT, but that was about a decade ago. I graduated high school about a year after the Clan rules came out and moved away from the friends I played with. I had two companys (24 mechs - how many butt loads is that
) and each lance had an aerospace fighter, support vehicle, and it's own color/camoflage scheme. We rarly ever played the vehicles and fighters, but it sure was cool having the minis
. I too had an all night sluggfest where we put the two companies against each other. It was a hell of a lot of fun, but we all swore we'd never do it again - it was just too big of a game.
I only have five Mechs from my old collection now. They were the ones discontinued for violating the Macross copyright. I wish I had more of them now that Macross is getting popular again.
