WHAT IS VOTOMS?
a gritty Mecha Anime series set in a galaxy that knows only war.
The Mecha are Armored Troopers, or ATs, and are not the glamorous
heroic units you see in other mecha shows. They are also
sometimes called Votoms, short for Vertical One-man Tank for Offensive
Maneuvers. These are disposable, one man tanks that can be torn apart by enemy fire. Only the best pilots survive.
is handy when figuring out when to set your games.
This AT CHART shows the evolution of many of the ATs from the series, but feel free to invent your own too!
is our home brew campaign RPG rules, and contains everything you
need to play, including record sheets and damage cards. The dice
pool mechanics are inspired by the Mutant: Year Zero RPG by Free
League and published by Modiphius.
To give your games the classic VOTOMS audio treatment, right
click and save this SOUNDBOARD (Note: to stop the
walk sound, just right click the button). And hunt
down some of the original soundtracks, they're classic!
Our favorite thing about
running a VOTOMS campaign is that ATs are quite small for Mecha, only 4
meters tall on average. This makes it easy to obtain and
use mecha figures that are close to the same scale as 28 mm Miniatures,
so we can field ground troops and Mechs on the table at the same time.
1/48 Scale AT FIGURES (Actic Gear, etc)
1/48 Scale Support Vehicles (Actic Gear / Scratch Build)
1/60 Scale AT FIGURES (Gashapon, etc)
We have run three epic
campaigns so far in the Votoms universe, each with its own characters,
threats and plot twists. Read all about them in our gloriously
illustrated Campaign Logs, featuring photos of our actual AT models,
Miniatures, and Terrain.
