Hey all, I'm Oryan, AKA CPTPromotable or 1LT(P)Obvious on these, our internets.
I just found out about this yesterday through another forum(dp9, i love big stompy fightan' robots) and have absorbed so much awesome in the last two days i feel i must let it out lest it explode in a LEGO-bricky cascade, much to the horror of my wife and daughter.
I work in the oilfield here in west Texas(specifically, on drilling rigs) and have been active in many tabletop wargames and boardgames since i was 12(so half my life now), including currently playing Uncharted Seas and Dystopian Wars and getting into Heavy Gear: Blitz! soon.
I think this endeavor is awesome because I have many friends, who, while enthusiastic about gaming with me, never have the disposable income to invest in pewter/resin/whatever models. This is where MFZ enters and kicks butt. I can buy up all the miniblocks i'll ever need and give them to my friends to build as they wish and not feel my wallet punching me every time i take a step. Plus, i love the look of all of the mecha, from the Chubs(who will be my main) to the Hi-legs(my first Opfor) and scramblers, to all the myriad original designs(particularly mitten_ninjas roadrunner and other fairly original Hunchback and so on, and vincent/lumpley[i think] floating imperial bots from a photobucket album somewhere on the forum).
Now that the thought vomit has ceased, I'll just say this: Holy cow I'm glad to be here! If only I had found this right when the kickstarter began and I had the opportunity to get one of the bigger packages.
