Frame Kits

I was going to do a post about a scenario idea I had but that can wait a bit.

Frame kits are something that gets talked about on a regular basis by the MFZ community. There's a whole discussion topic over on the Hangar.  Over on the French MF0 Facebook page, Antoine Davrou is putting together Starter Packs for 65 Euro.  You might know him as Ybliss on Flickr.

Here's what hes got so far.
Forces D'Intervention Planetaire: Frames & Kit  (Sold out.)
Front de Liberation du Sahaari: Frames & Kit
Les strikers du C.C.C.: Frames & Kit

Each kit comes with the parts for the frames, dice, and a ruler.  I think this is the first time anyone has done something like this.  Yes, I know, there's the Garage Kit and someone used to make Classic mecha kits for Mechaton.  But I think this is the first time someone has included dice and a ruler to make these kits playable from the word go.

This is a very cool thing.


  1. This is "La French touch"

  2. I wasn't aware he was doing full kits with dice and ruler. That's a super smart idea, especially since to get D8s at an effective price, you basically have to get a huge amount of them.

    I may try my hand at something similar in the US depending.

    1. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
