           I think that a warhammer 40k varient would be better. Where-as
one mobile suit would equal one space marine. The basic units would be
GM's or ZAKU's and special "unique" units would be a character from the
series, ie. char or amuro. Though would would need a pretty small scale
models for it to work the same. Do anyone of you know of any? This is a
really good idea.
